Good Morning, Musicologists! It has certainly been a challenging week having to put in more hours than normal in retail hell, but hey, the music is fine here in The Mermaid Lounge.
Here’s Saturday’s line-up:
9:00 a.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists
Today we bring you the music that inspired our little radio station and launched a new generation of music never to be equaled. You’ll hear The Monkees, Sonny & Cher, Mary Wells,, Dusty Springfield, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Drifters, The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, Petula Clark, Buddy Holly, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Band, The Yardbirds, The Searchers, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Bob Dylan, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, and more.
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Revelator by Tedeschi Trucks Band FINAL AIRING!
Today we bid a fond farewell to Revelator, the great studio debut album by the Tedeschi Trucks Band. When you wake up on Sunday, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Assembly Hall, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, IL, February 22, 1973 NEW!
Another great soundboard concert from the road warriors, this one from the University of Illinois. Remember, no two shows are ever the same…even on the same tour.
Great day to tune us in. Before, in between, and after, we have our great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid, who is always fully in charge and ready to go. We run on musical adrenalin 24/7 with no commercial interruptions and no endless DJ chatter. Just music.
