Good Morning, Rockologists! It’s another fine, frenzied Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge! We’ve got a bunch of great stuff sprinkled amidst all that great Open Stream! Tune in!
Here’s your Saturday programming:
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, October 3, 1977
This was the eleventh consecutive night for Ronstadt’s Simple Dreams tour back in ’77, added due to continued ticket demand. She was riding high in those day. I saw the tour in Boston and upstate New York, only two of the forty I would see her perform during her career.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exodus by Bob Marley & The Wailers
This will be the final airing of Exodus as our Album of The Week. When you roll your butt out of bed tomorrow morning, we’ll have a brand new album in focus.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye
Despite his many personal problems, Marvin Gaye was a musical marvel who was instrumental in shaping the Motown sound, first as a studio musician, then as a major artist with a string of hits. Because of this, he was often called The Prince of Motown. We put him In the Spotlight today.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Thelma Theatre, Los Angeles, December 12, 1969 NEW!
We go waaaaay back in time for this one, kids! Another performance by the ultimate jam band.
As I say every day: This is a great day to tune us in. Because every day is a great day to tune us in. No lie. We’re free. We do not accept advertising so there’s no untimely interruptions, and our DJ’s are practically mute.
