Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re heading for the weekend again today as we give you songs about water on this fine day. It’s only fitting since the earth is composed of 71% water.
Here’s your Thursday lineup:
10:00 a.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists
Yes, it’s a scientific fact that the earth is composed of 71% water, and today we talk about water all day long (without being boring, of course). You’ll hear from Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel, Otis Redding, Neil Young, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Valerie Carter, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Al Green, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Loggins & Messina, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Linda Ronstadt, Spirit, The Grass Roots, The Beach Boys, Lindisfarne, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Steely Dan, Tom Rush, Johnny Rivers, America, Donovan and more!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry
This is the next-to-last airing of this ambitions concept album by a very talented, yet reclusive, recording artist. On Sunday, we’ll have a brand new entry!
Great day to be with your worldwide fellow listeners. We’re working on some special Memorial Weekend programming here in The Mermaid Lounge revolving around our House Bands! It’ll be the top hits of The Beatles on Saturday the 28th, and Petty’s top hits on Sunday the 29th, so plan to be here!
