Saturday is the busiest day we have here in The Mermaid Lounge, and today is no exception! We’ve got quite a line-up on tap for you all today, as I toil in the world of retail bullshit.
Here’s Saturday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Live at Rich Stadium, New York, July 4, 1986 NEW!
From the second leg of the infamous True Confessions tour. We’ve aired other shows from this tour in the past, but never this venue. According to Mike Campbell, it was playing with Bob Dylan that taught the band how to be spontaneous on stage and respond to what the audience wanted. If that’s the case, they learned their lesson well.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blues From Laurel Canyon by John Mayall FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of Blues From Laurel Canyon is today, so make sure you’re on your tab at 3:00 p.m. When you wake up Sunday, there will be a brand new Album of The Week.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The (Young) Rascals
One of the finest bands ever to enter a recording studio right here. A Mermaid Lounge favorite for sure, and they are taking their place in the spotlight today.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Academy of Music, New York, March 26, 1972 NEW!
Another new show from the world’s premier jam band. This one comes from the Academy of Music in New York. Eventually we’ll have to start repeating shows, but not yet. There are still plenty to go, and every show is different…even on the same tour.
Saturday is always a great day to listen in to #BecomeUngovernable Radio. (I know I sound like a broken record.) We are totally free every single day, not just occasionally as we try to pick up listeners. There is no bait-and-switch. We ask for no personal information, no credit card, and no subscription. What are you waiting for?
