Here we are starting another month together here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we have our very first long-player ever created up today featuring the music that inspired this station. We also have our brand new Album of The Week.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne NEW!
Great rockers never really die, and neither do great singer-songwriters. And Jackson Browne is one of the elites in my book. In every article I read, the album is being described as a boomer faces his own mortality, and it may well be that because Jackson Browne has always been introspective. Do I think it’s his best? No. Do I think it’s a great album? I do. Especially since I sometimes too find myself confronting my own mortality.
3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists
This is due for an update, but it’s pretty damned serviceable as it is. We have two sixties rotations because we have so much sixties music. This is more geared toward the earlier part of the sixties. Since this is the first of the two we put together, we can it The Original Sixties Rotation. It is indeed the music that inspired me to start this station and share my record collection with you. More than five hours of sixties music uninterrupted begins at mid-day.
You’ll hear Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Beatles. The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Them, The Hollies, Petula Clark, The Searchers, Little Eva, The Turtles, The Grateful Dead, Barry McGuire, Buddy Hollie, Johnny Rivers, Bobbie Gentry, The Dave Clark Five, The Supremes, Bob Dylan, and many more.
Sunday is a day of rest. Unless, of course, you’re caught up in that retail nonsense where you have to shop all seven days of the week to support the capitalist state. Remember, the product we offer is FREE. We do not require a subscription, ask for a credit card number or seek your personal information. Just sayin’
