The start of another work week is upon is. Of course, I’m off today but I worked a rare Sunday yesterday and am not a fan. It won’t happen again soon. But I’ll be feeling better soon with this great music.
Here’s today’s musical lineup:
11:00 a.m. Everybody But Bob: Various Artists
Today we’ve got a playlist of Bob Dylan music sung by everybody but him. You know what they say: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Some of the people you will hear covering Bob’s compositions are Joan Baez (of course), Linda Ronstadt, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Johnny Winter, Richie Havens, Waylon Jennings, The Neville Brothers, Emmylou Harris, Leon Russell, The Band, Hot Tuna, Tracy Nelson, and more!
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Rivers
When we have the right mix of people in the store, we’re always listening to sixties music. The kids always ask, “Who’s this singing. It’s great!” The answer always seems to be: “It’s Johnny Rivers.” Sometimes we forget just how great this guy was, and how prolific his presence was in the day. He’s a Mermaid Lounge favorite for sure, and you will hear him this afternoon.
7:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones Live at The Palais Royale, Toronto, Canada, August 16, 2002
Tonight we have the Stones live from Canada on the Licks Tour. These guys are like a collection of Energizer Bunnies. They are still out there doing it, and still sounding great here in 2022. Their music is timeless.
It’s a great Monday of music and we’ve got folks from around the globe on this morning. We think the folks in the U.S. should get with the program and join them. We’re totally free; no strings, no surprises. We do not run advertising to muck up the music flow, and we don’t ask for a credit card or personal information. We don’t need that. We just need you to pull up a tab and click the link below.
