We’ve got another Tuesday Bluesday in The Lounge and we kick it off today with our ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP. Later it’s Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble live in New York.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

9:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

We start off our blues programming with ‘The Best of Chicago Blues’ from Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson, Son Seals, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Car Wheels On A Gravel Road by Lucinda Williams

The second airing of this great Grammy Award-winning LP is today, and the title track is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time.

8:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, October 4, 1984

One of the great trios of all time here with Stevie Ray Vaughan front and center in a live performance from Carnegie Hall. A most excellent way to end our Tuesday Bluesday programming.

We’ve got a full house as usual on Tuesday Bluesday. It’s one of our busiest days of the week. Why not join your international friends and tune us in. We’re on 24/7. We’re free. And we don’t accept commercial advertising. What’s not to love?

We Debut Our New ‘What’s In A Name’ EP, Give You Lukas Nelson & POTR, and Some ‘Live’ Joni Mitchell Later on Monday, May 1, 2023

Welcome to a brand new month! Today we debut a new EP we didn’t even realize we had, give you Willie’s boy at mid-afternoon, and close out with Joni Mitchell later.

Here’s your Monday, Monday music:

9:00 a.m. What’s In a Name: Various Artists NEW!

We’ve played this song before, but we didn’t realize how many hours of music this amounted to, so it becomes an official EP this morning! You’ll hear Them, The Velvet Underground, Neil Diamond, The Band, Linda Ronstadt, The Kinks, Steely Dan, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, Donovan, Carly Simon, Shawn Colvin, Warren Zevon, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, Jonathan Edwards, John Lennon, Chuck Berry and more!

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real

It’s been a spell since we’ve heard from these guys and this playlist is probably in need of an updating, which we shall undertake soon. But in the meantime, we’ve got them In the Spotlight at mid-afternoon today.

8:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, February 3, 1973

We close out the programming on Monday with some great live Joni Mitchell from Carnegie Hall at the beginning of her illustrious career. She is a musical treasure who refuses to be defined by any one genre. Enjoy.

Hey, it’s Monday and by all measures, all Mondays are tough. Why not improve your situation with some great music? We’ve got it here for you courtesy of The Music Mermaid, your constant companion.
