We’re inching closer to the holiday weekend, and I have no idea what The Music Mermaid has in store, but I do know what’s going on today, and that’s a bonus.
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. Money, Honey: Various Artists
We haven’t heard this one in a while, so let’s dust it off and spin it. It’s all about the money. Songs with references to money in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear from Elvis, The Guess Who, The Beatles, Warren Zevon, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Randy Newman, Bruce Springsteen, Allen Toussaint, The Wallflowers, Chuck Berry, the J. Geils Band, Willie Nelson, Laura Nyro, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd, J.J. Cale, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Tom Rush, Albert King, The Traveling Wilburys, Barrett Strong, The Kinks, and more! Talk about an eclectic playlist!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Big Brother & The Holding Company by Big Brother & The Holding Company
We’re winding down on this week’s selection. Our final airing will be on Saturday. On Sunday morning when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new Album of The Week to help you move towards the New Year.
7:00 p.m. Blind Faith Live at The Earl Warren Showgrounds, Santa Barbara, California, August 16, 1969
Tonight we close the programming portion of the program with Britain’s very first supergroup, featuring Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Rich Grech, and Ginger Baker playing at, oddly enough, the Earl Warren Showgrounds. To be honest, for all of my musical knowledge, I had no idea this place even existed. You learn something new every day.
