Happy Monday From The Mermaid Lounge With Some Valentines Day Playlists and The Fab Four Sandwiched in Between, February 13, 2023

Good morning and welcome to another Monday. Here we are in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ll give you some Valentines Day TLA and heartbreak today (tomorrow is Tuesday Bluesday, so we must adjust) and The Beatles in between.

Here’s what Monday, Monday brings:

11:00 a.m. True Love Always: Various Artists

We start off the programming with the happy side of love, when everything is rosy. That’s usually when it’s “new” as it turns out. It’ll deteriorate later. You’ll hear loving entreaties from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Mamas & The Papas, Carly Simon, The Yardbirds, Van Morrison, Delaney & Bonnie, Buffalo Springfield, The Band, Linda Ronstadt, Maria Muldaur, Valerie Carter, Boz Scaggs, Bonnie Raitt, The Hollies, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more!

3:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years

We’re a bit late out of the gate here, but we always manage to catch up. On February 9, The Beatles performed for the first time on The Ed Sullivan Show. So, today, we give you a playlist of their early songs in celebration of that musical event that changed it all.

7:00 p.m. Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists

Here’s the flip side of the coin. Otherwise known as when things go sour. I’m the master of this playlist. You’ll hear Carole King, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Tom Rush, Jackson Browne, Aretha Franklin, the J. Geils Band, Mudcrutch, Guy Clark, Lucinda Williams, Dan Fogelberg, Warren Zevon, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Cat Stevens, The Searchers, Ray Charles and more.

Yeah. It’s Monday, and the first day of the week pretty much sucks. But hey, you can improve the day by tuning us in. So, if you’ve got an office, close the door and pull up a tab. If you work at home, even better. You can even turn us on after work and improve your day because we run 24/7 with no commercial interruption. We’re all about the music.
