It’s a back to the work week Monday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got some great music for you today, including our first airing of the ‘No Nukes’ concert.
Here’s today’s lineup:
11:00 a.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists

Water is a popular topic for musicians and you’ll hear about it from Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Otis Redding, Neil Young, America, Johnny Rivers, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Valerie Carter, Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Al Green, 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, Donovan and more!
7:00 p.m. The No Nukes Concert, Madison Square Garden, September 21, 1979 NEW!
Last week we aired The Concert for Bandladesh, the very first “cause” concert and the brainchild of George Harrison and Ravi Shankar. Tonight we air No Nukes, a 1979 concert from MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy), a group consisting of Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Harvey Wasserman, and John Hall. This activist group formed shortly after the Three Mile Island accident in March of 1979. Participating artists in the concerts included Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Bonnie Raitt, Crosby, Stills and Nash, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Tom Petty, Jesse Colin Young, Gil Scott-Heron, Dan Fogelberg, Poco and more.
Yes, the work week has indeed begun once again, but the music is still playing here in The Mermaid Lounge. If you’re lucky enough to work in an office, close your door, pull up a tab and put on some great background sounds. If you stream music in your work environment, give us a shot. We’re on the web, after all. Just plug us in.
