‘Twas The Day Before Christmas and We’re All Still Rocking Here in The Mermaid Lounge, Friday, December 24, 2021

Good Morning, Revelers! Yes, it’s our programming for the day before Christmas and we continue on with the greatest music and programming on the planet. Hang those stockings and rock around the Christmas tree with us!

Hop aboard The Psychedelic Express with us today! Hey, if you can get into a guy in a sled being pulled across the sky by eight tiny reindeer, you’ve got to be on something.

Here’s your pre-Christmas line-up:

9:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt & Friends: Duets and More

You know, Linda Ronstadt had an amazing solo career and a run in the seventies that leveled the musical playing field with the boys. In spite of all that, Linda loved singing with others most. In this two-hour playlist, you’ll hear her sing with Frank Sinatra, Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, J.D. Souther, Ann Savoy, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Wendy Waldman, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Maria Muldaur, Hoyt Axton, James Taylor, Neil Young, James Ingram, Paul Simon, Valerie Carter, Rosemary Clooney, Bette Midler, Aaron Neville, and as part of Trio — the only bona fide all-woman supergroup (with Emmylou Harris & Dolly Parton).

3:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

Yeah, baby. Like I said, if you’re waiting around for a guy named Santa in a sled pulled across the sky by eight tiny flying reindeer, this is your extended playlist. You’ll hear Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, The Animals, Eric Burdon & War, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, The Doors, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, Yes, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, Tommy James & The Shondells, Vanilla Fudge, Cream, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Traffic, The Grateful Dead, Procol Harum, Blues Image, Donovan, The Byrds, Blind Faith, The Chambers Brothers, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground and more!

Nothing like a little psychedelia for Christmas. That’s my motto. And where better to get that than right here. We give you all this for free, not just at Christmas but every damned day! Who needs capitalism?
