Good Morning, Gang! Here we are again on another Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge. We had a bit of an interruption in the flow with Fillmore Fest earlier in the month, but we’re back on track now!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers NEW!
This guy is my personal songwriting favorite in the post-Petty era. Jakob Dylan recently gave an interview, in fact, in which he said that his friend Tom Petty loomed large over this album, his first in ten years with The Wallflowers. We are certainly glad they are back.
3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists
The music that inspired me to start this radio station is back for another uninterrupted five-hour stint today. We had a minor delay to pay honor to The Fillmore, but we are back on track now. This is the music that covers the mid-to-late sixties with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Janis Joplin (with and without Big Brother), The Kinks, The Grateful Dead, The Chambers Brothers, Melanie, The Temptations, The Stone Poneys (featuring Linda Ronstadt), The Band, Bob Dylan, The Four Tops, Cream, Derek & The Dominos, Scott McKenzie, The Mamas & The Papas, and many, many others.
Get off to an early start. We already have people listening in from the UK, France, Denmark, the Russian Federation, The Faroe Islands (look them up; it’s real), Switzerland, Germany, and our home base in the U.S. All are welcome. We’re free. There’s no commercial interruption, and no credit card required. All you need is a computer tab.
