Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge Brings Volume Two of Our Sixties Rotation, and Gram Parsons With Our Album of The Week, September 19, 2021

It’s a great day in The Mermaid Lounge because we bring you the music that inspired us to start this station to begin with. We focus on the 60’s and deliver a brand new Album of The Week as well.

The Sixties are back starting at 3:00 p.m. EST!

Here’s your Sunday programming!

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Grievous Angel by Gram Parsons NEW!

Gram Parsons never lived long enough to see just how influential he truly was. He died at the age of 26 from multiple drug use in a Joshua Tree, California, on this very day (September 19) in 1973. It’s only fitting we pay him tribute with our Album of The Week.

Parsons was a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist who played with The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The International Submarine Band, and as a solo artist. He also collaborated with Emmylou Harris and, in spite of the rumors, they were not lovers. Their connection was music. She, of course, went on to become a country-rock legend.

Gram Parsons brought country to rock n’ roll and helped forge the country-rock genre in the same way that Bob Dylan brought folk to rock. He was that influential in a very short lifetime.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists

We’re back with the music that helped to bring us to live here in The Mermaid Lounge. This volume focuses more on the mid-to-late sixties. You will hear The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin (with and without her various bands), The Four Tops, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, James Brown, The Box Tops, Vanilla Fudge, Sly & The Family Stone, The Doors, The Zombies, and many more. It’s over five hours of sixties music!

We’re waiting for you here in The Mermaid Lounge where we are all about the music. We are free to all, accept absolutely no advertising, and employ only one DJ. We do not require a “subscription” or your credit card number. We also do not seek out your personal information. What the hell are you waiting for?
