Good Morning, Musicologists! Well, it’s downright cold here today and I’m loving the break from tropical Massachusetts. To top it off, we’ve got brand new stuff for you today.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Nina Simone NEW!
This has been a very long time coming, and we are so glad it’s finally come to fruition. Nina Simone had a very long and illustrious career. She was a singer, songwriter, musician, arranger and a social activist during her lifetime. Her musical styles covered and blended jazz, classical, gospel, R & B, pop, folk, and blues. Enjoy.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan
We’re winding down on this great album. We’ve got one more airing on Saturday before we choose a new album for Sunday’s airing.
7:00 p.m. Paint It Black: Various Artists NEW!
This is our brand new playlist and it features the word “black” in the Title, the lyrics, or both. You’ll hear The Kinks, Tim Hardin, Rosanne Cash, Johnny Cash, Dr. John, Fairport Convention, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones (of course), The Flying Burrito Brothers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal, Laura Nyro, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Tom Rush, Steely Dan, Three Dog Night, The Hollies, Warren Zevon, The Band, and many more!

It’s a new season outside and inside The Mermaid Lounge. We’ll be adding some new features, new music, new playlists, and Trifectas.
