Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s going to be a hot one outside today, and we’ll be matching that in The Mermaid Lounge with some great programming interspersed in all that wide Open Stream.
Here’s your Saturday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists
It’s promising to be a hot one here to day in the Boston area, so we’re inside cooling off with some music about all kinds of water. You’ll hear from Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, 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 many more!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: McCartney by Paul McCartney FINAL AIRING!
We bid a very fond farewell to this first solo Beatle effort today from one of the greatest musicians of all time. He’s still out there touring and singing and thrilling audiences everywhere. But alas, this is the final airing.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Dream Bowl, Vallejo, CA, February 22, 1969 NEW!
Mr. Peabody put us in the Wayback Machine for this one, vintage 1969 and another new show added to our list of Live Dead performances.
Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we have two strict rules: We never have more hours of programming than we do Open Stream. And we never charge for the music we play. We also don’t require you fill anything out or provide us with any personal information. Hell, we don’t even track you. We’re too damned busy finding new music.
