Hey, but that ain’t all. Before, after and in between we’ve got a 27,000+ song rotation that may or may not be sixties related! But one thing’s for sure, there’s no disco, rap, hip-hop, or head banging heavy metal.
Here’s your Christmas Day line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Big Brother & The Holding Company by Big Brother & The Holding Company FINAL AIRING!
The band’s debut album was recorded over three days in 1966 and released in 1967. After the band’s success at the Monterey Pop festival, their contract was taken over by Columbia. The album was then re-released with the words “featuring Janis Joplin” on the cover. That was the beginning of her meteoric rise before her sad demise. This is our final airing today. Don’t miss it.
2:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists
The music that inspired me to start this station takes over here and brings you into the evening. You’ll hear The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Buffalo Springfield, The Four Tops, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Box Tops, Vanilla Fudge, Sly & The Family Stone, Three Dog Night, The Doors, The Zombies, The Chambers Brothers, The Animals, The Who, The Spencer Davis Group, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and many more!
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco, May 19, 1966
This is a rare repeat here in The Mermaid Lounge, but it hasn’t been aired since right around this time in 2019. It’s as good as new, folks. Another soundboard gem from the world’s premier jam band.
What could be better than spending your Christmas with some great music, and listeners from around the world. We’ve got Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Russian Federation, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Ireland, and Germany all on this morning. Give us a shot.
