Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s going to be steamy hot here today, but in The Mermaid Lounge we’ve got nothing but coolness going as we launch a brand new playlist this evening.
Here’s your mid-week line-up!
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Electric Light Orchestra
It has been a long time between airings for this playlist, so we are more than overdue for some of Jeff Lynne’s ELO. Before Jeff Lynne (and after, actually) was a Wilbury and a producer of Tom Petty’s albums, he was the front man for a band called The Move (we will play some material from them later this week), and ELO. We put his time with ELO In The Spotlight today.
3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan Live in ’75: The Rolling Thunder Revue
We continue our celebration of the birthday boy’s 80th year with a selection of Rolling Thunder Revue live music, vintage 1975. Later this week, we go back even further into the archives.
7:00 p.m. On The Map: Various Artists NEW!
They say location is everything, and we’re here to prove it with a playlist of songs with prime locations either in the title or in the lyrics. This is a fun one, and some of the musicians you’ll hear are Linda Ronstadt, Tom Petty, Tom Rush, Glen Campbell, Creedence Clearwater Revival, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, The Grateful Dead, and The Beatles.
The playlist will be up under the Playlist tab before 7:00 p.m. All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom!
We’ve got new music today, so that’s always a good day to give us a shot. I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Join your friends from around the globe for some 24/7 totally free, outside-the-capitalist system music. You won’t regret it.
