We’re at midweek once again here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some great music for you today, including our very first All-Girl Revue.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of ZZ Top
ZZ Top was started in Houston, Texas in 1969. For 51 years the trio of Dusty Hill (vocals, bass), Billy Gibbons (vocalist, guitarist), and Frank Beard (drums) made some of the best rock music around. Oddly enough, Frank Beard was the only member in the band without an outrageous beard. Today, we put them In the Spotlight.
Wednesday Afternoon Trifectas
This afternoon we’ve got wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid and some great Trifectas:
3:00 p.m. Cannned Heat
4:00 p.m. The Kinks
5:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones
6:00 p.m. The Traveling Wilburys
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume One: Various Artists
This is the very first collection of women’s music we ever put together when we started. We thought this would be a great day to break it out of the vault. You’ll hear Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, Petula Clark, Carly Simon, Patti Smith, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, Laura Nyro, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Irma Thomas, and more.
Tune us in, folks. We’ve got listeners from Denmark, Spain, Italy, Portugal, The Faroe Islands, Canada, Brazil, the UK, Germany, France, Costa Rica, and a few from the good old United States tuning in today. All you have to do is open a tab and click on the link below:
