Good Morning, Music Lovers! Have you ever seen anything roll around as fast as a Monday? The good news is that we’ve got the music here to help you through. Just lock that office door and pull up a tab. If you’re lucky enough to work at home, even better!
Here’s your Monday, Monday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Lucinda Williams
Lucinda Williams is back for her second airing as our featured Singer-Songwriter this week. We’ll have one more airing a bit later this week as well. Tune her in. She was a friend of Tom’s and he rightfully championed her as someone who must be heard. He could recognize a great songwriter. Lucinda Williams also opened for him on several tours, including his very last one, the 40th Anniversary Tour.
3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Supremes
There were bands that were instrumental in developing the Motown sound. Diana Ross & The Supremes were certainly one of those acts. We’ve got them In the Spotlight this afternoon.
7:00 p.m. More Cowbell, Please: Various Artists NEW!
We carry you in to this evening with a brand new multi-artist playlist for all percussion lovers out there. This one is all about the cowbell. It opens with what we consider the finest example of a song where the cowbell reigns supreme. You will hear from The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Alan Parsons Project, Bob Dylan, Harry Nilsson, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Warren Zevon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Move, Elton John, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Electric Light Orchestra, Joe Walsh, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Journey. Stephen Stills, Grateful Dead, J. Geils Band, Queen, Steely Dan, Little Feat, The Turtles and more!
Come on, people, let’s start the day off on a fine note by joining us and your friends around the world here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got a great lineup for you today and we won’t cost you one cent. No lie. No surprises. No bullshit.
