Good Morning, my musical friends! We here in The Mermaid Lounge have decided that this is a pretty good day for a Totally Wilbury Wednesday, and so it shall be.
Here’s your mid-week line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Traveling Wilburys: The Bootleg Collection
Every poll ever taken in the past twenty years that I’ve seen has resulted in this band being remembered as the greatest supergroup of all time. And I fully concur. Today we’ve got a gem for you with outtakes, rough takes, alternative versions, final versions and special sessions. It’s a look inside the music making of The Traveling Wilburys. For those who have not yet immersed themselves in this band, you can explore the website right here. You can also watch this short documentary from George Harrison here. It’s all great fun, I assure you.
3:00 p.m. The Wilbury Trifecta Afternoon!
We get back to streaming for the rest of the day, but starting mid-afternoon we kick off trifectas by members of the band (although not Wilbury music). Do you get that? Or did I confuse you?
3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury)
4:00 p.m. Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Junior)
5:00 p.m. George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury)
6:00 p.m. Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury)
7:00 p.m. Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury)
Did you know that they changed their names again for Volume 3? And by the way, there was never a Volume 2. Just sayin’
This is a great day to make us your music source. Trust me. We’re totally free 24/7. We run no advertising. We don’t require a credit card or personal information. What else could you possibly want but a free radio station that spends it’s time pumping out music?
