We are busy as beavers here in The Mermaid Lounge as we give you our traditional “busiest” day of programming, including a belated birthday celebration for The Boss.
Here’s your Saturday musical landscape:
9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Sunshine Superman by Donovan FINAL AIRING!
We’re on the final airing of this great psychedelic effort, but we have a brand new one on tap for introduction tomorrow. Get this one in while you can! It was Donovan’s most psychedelic album.
12:00 p.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists
Water, like music, is a life essential. You’ll hear odes to water 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 more!
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Bruce Springsteen NEW!
Finally, Springsteen gets his Spotlight feature and we’re happy to wish The Boss a belated (only one day) 73rd birthday with this one. Give a listen to the guy who was a major pioneer in the ‘heartland rock’ genre.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The DuPont Gymnasium, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, May 7, 1970
Another repeat, but it was last aired in early 2020, so it’s like new. As is every performance by the world’s preeminent jam band. We’re working on new material going forward, but this is a great soundboard recording.
Saturday is a busy day her, but we’d like to remind you that wide Open Stream is still the majority of our daily fare from The Mermaid Lounge. All of our EP’s are multi-artist as well. The Music Mermaid does an impeccable job of keeping us in line here. Come on in and see for yourself!
