Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s the beginning of another week here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re all business this morning. We’ve got a great line up for you today.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists EXPANDED!
Drugs, booze, you name it. We’ve all done it in our lifetime, and plenty of musicians and bands have written songs about it. We’ve got them here today in our expanded and updated playlist. Don’t be fooled into thinking Got To Get You Into My Life is about a woman and doesn’t belong here. McCartney himself admitted that he wrote it about his love for weed.
In addition to the Beatles, you’ll hear The Velvet Underground, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, and many more.
4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur
Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer who began her career in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village as part of the folk music revival of the early sixties. She has continued to roll on singing not only folk and blues, but jazz, country, pop, and R & B. She’s also loaned her pipes to the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt, and is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge.
We’re bringing back the trifectas today. It has been a while. We’ve got them scheduled as follows for your listening pleasure:
10:00 a.m. Aretha Franklin
2:30 p.m. Steve Winwood
6:00 p.m. Canned Heat
8:00 p.m. The Rascals
We hope you’ll tune us in today. We highly encourage this because we know we play the best damned music on the planet for free (no small print), non-stop 24/7. Just do it.
