It’s ‘All About Blue’ Today, We’ve Got Emmylou Harris In the Spotlight, and CCR Live at The Fillmore, Monday, December 13, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Guess what? We have short(er) playlists too! We’ve got a great one today along with Emmylou Harris and Creedence Clearwater Revival to kick off your work week!

Here’s Monday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. All About Blue, Various Artists

Hey, it’s not just about EP’s here in The Mermaid Lounge. We have all kinds of multi-artist playlists, including this one with the color ‘blue’ in the title, lyrics or both! You’ll hear from The Allman Brothers Band, Linda Ronstadt, Foreigner, Mudcrutch, Joni Mitchell, Jonathan Edwards, Taj Mahal, Bob Dylan, Electric Light Orchestra, Wings, George Harrison, The Band, Fats Domino, The Traveling Wilburys, Elvis Presley, Badfinger, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris

Emmylou Harris’ career began back in 1969 and she is still on the move. During that time she has won 14 Grammy Awards, the Polar Music Prize (and many other awards too numerous to mention here), been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008, and was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Harris is rightfully credited with making country more accessible to a wider audience, and today we put her In the Spotlight.

7:00 p.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, July 4, 1971

When I was young and dumb, I just assumed that these guys came straight out of the Louisiana Bayou. In fact, what we have are four guys from Berkeley who sounded like they came straight out of the Louisiana Bayou. They also just happened to make some of the greatest rock n’ roll on the planet. We love these guys here in The Lounge. Today we have the live from The Fillmore for your listening pleasure. Cook up some crawfish and shrimp and enjoy.

Here we are again. Yesterday we added listeners from India and today they seem to be back here again today. Argentina has also joined the crowd this morning as well. Where are you?
