Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are motoring toward the weekend again and we’ve got our ‘All About Blue’ playlist (not an EP), our Album of The Week and Lucinda Williams’ final turn as this week’s Singer-Songwriter.
Here’s your musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. All About Blue, Volume One: Various Artists
Yes, it’s time for the best of all color again: BLUE. The word blue in the title, lyrics, or both. You’ll hear The Allman Brothers Band, The Beatles, Paul McCartney & Wings, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, Electric Light Orchestra, Elvis Presley, The Band, Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder, Badfinger, Joni Mitchell and more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Harmony by Maria Muldaur
This is our next-to-last airing of this great album that encompasses R & B, the blues and a little folk from one of the most versatile singers on the planet, Maria Muldaur. The final airing will be Saturday.
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Lucinda Williams FINAL AIRING!
This is the final airing of Lucinda Williams as our featured singer-songwriter for this week. On Saturday, we introduce the legendary John Prine as our featured artist.
Again, we are here in The Mermaid Lounge to bring you the best music on the planet. And no. We are not all things to all people. There is stuff you will not hear on this station. We don’t play hip-hop, disco or rap. But we DO play plenty of soul music, rhythm & blues, and the blues. You know, actual music.
