Good Morning, Music Lovers! The cycle continues with another Monday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got some great programming to kick off the week.
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush
We haven’t aired this one for a while. It seems like a good time to me. Tom Rush is a local boy ’round these parts, born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He has made some excellent music over his long and storied career, and has launched many a singer-songwriter to fame and fortune.
3:00 p.m. Not the Album of The Week: Highway Companion by Tom Petty FINAL AIRING!
Yesterday was the actual release date fifteen years ago for Petty’s third and final solo album. We were pretty busy yesterday, so we thought we’d air it one final time today.
7:00 p.m. Bob Dylan & Friends: The 30th Anniversary Celebration
I was pretty much inspired by Chrissie Hynde’s Dylan’s covers album that is this week’s Album of The Week. The songs covered here are more of the well-known variety, but Dylan’s friend list is vast and this is a great concert with Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Chrissie Hynde, Roger McGuinn and many, many others. Not to be missed.
Again, let me implore you to tune us in. We’re on 24/7, uninterrupted by capitalist entreaties to purchase products you do not need. We don’t ask for your credit card or your personal information. There’s absolutely no subscription requirement. What more could you ask for?
