We Keep It Simple On Sunday With Our New AOW, a Tribute Album to Townes Van Zandt, and Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP, February 5, 2023

It’s Sunday Funday here in The Mermaid Lounge where we love to keep it simple on the seventh day of the week. We’ve got a great new AOW this morning to start it off. Read on!

Here’s your Sunday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Poet, A Tribute to Townes Van Zandt, Various Artists NEW!

This is a great multi-artist album featuring the music of singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, who wrote many songs including Pancho & Lefty, For The Sake of The Song, If I Needed You, and To Live Is To Fly. Many of his compositions are considered to be masterpieces of American songwriting. His personal story is a sad one as he struggled with substance abuse and alcoholism and a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, but it does not diminish this man’s contribution to American popular music. On this album you will hear Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Delbert McClinton, Lucinda Williams, Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith, and many more pay tribute to his brilliance.

3:00 p.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists

This afternoon we feature a great EP extolling the virtues of the night. You’ll hear The Traveling Wilburys, Sam Cooke, Jimmy Cliff, Bonnie Raitt, Warren Zevon, the J. Geils Band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, Them, Van Morrison, Patti Smith, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bruce Springsteen, The Kinks, the Electric Prunes, Phoebe Snow, Joe Walsh, The Eagles, The Ronettes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, The Doors, Poco, Neil Diamond, The Animals, The Band, The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Steve Winwood, Cat Stevens and more!

All of our music runs 24/7 (not just when we have programming) uninterrupted by commercial advertising and at no cost to the general public. While I’m sure many think there are “strings” attached, I assure you there is not. See for yourself.
