Good Morning, Music Lovers, and welcome to our usual frenzied Saturday of programming. We have a wild one today, including our very first live performance from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary Tour!
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The American Airlines Center, Dallax, Texas, April 22, 2017 NEW!
This is the very first airing of any of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 40th Anniversary Tour, and this one comes from Dallas. We have a lot of TPATH live performances here in The Mermaid Lounge, but this is the first time we are airing anything from that final tour.
The set list will be posted under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom!
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: In The Midnight Hour & Other Hits by Wilson Pickett FINAL AIRING!
This will be the last time you can tune this album in. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have another fine album to feature for the week.

Yet another never-before-heard-here performance by the master of all jam bands, The Dead. This one is from one of my favorite cities, New Orleans.

Again, I will say that this is a great day to find out what we’re all about. Saturday is our busiest programming day, yet this represents only just over seven hours of music that we stream in a 24-hour day. We’re totally free, we do not run advertising, and the rest of the time is dedicated to Open Stream. Just pull up a tab and click the link below.
