Good Morning, Bluesologists! We open the month of February with a Tuesday Bluesday, and we’ve got some new live John Mayall coming your way for starters.
Here’s today’s blues programming:
11:00 a.m. John Mayall Live at The Leicester Square Theatre, London, November 1, 2010 NEW!
The Godfather of The British Blues has recently announced his retirement from the road in his 80th year, but today we’ve got a new live performance to give you from 2010 in the UK. The good news is that Mayall also just released a new album, The Sun is Shining Down, which will soon be our Album of The Week.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones
Today is the second airing of our latest Album of The Week, and it’s undoubtedly one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues
Tom Petty used to say he envisioned The Heartbreakers sitting around in chairs when they grew old and singing the blues. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite get there, but they sure did love and respect ‘da blues’ and made some great bluesy tunes along the way. We’ve got them here for you today to close out our blues programming.
If you’re a blues lover, Tuesdays here are a great day to tune us in. Although, frankly, we don’t mind telling you that every day is a great day to tune us in. And unlike Spotify, we don’t charge you to listen, require a subscription, or ask for your personal information…and we certainly don’t offer medical misinformation on our platform. What’s not to love?
