7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Marcia Ball

Marcia Ball is a blues singer, songwriter and superb pianist raised in Vinton, Louisiana. Her style is best summed up as a marriage of Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana swamp-blues. She was awarded the Contemporary Blues Album of The year in both 2002 and 2004. If you don’t know Marcia Ball, you should tune this Spotlight feature in tonight.

Here we are again. Before, after and in between our programming we’ve got wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by commercial advertising. And did I mention that we’re totally 100% free, no strings attached. Ever.

11:00 a.m. Janis Joplin Live at Winterland, San Francisco, CA, April 12, 1968

We’ve got early Janis here for you today as she belts out the blues from a legendary stage. She was one of the greatest as she easily walked the line between blues and rock.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Royal Scam by Steely Dan

It’s our second airing of this great album. No matter how many albums they made, the one thing you can be sure of is that you instantly recognize more than just the ‘hits.’ That’s the sign of greatness in our book.

7:00 p.m. Johnny Winter Live at Parker’s Place, Seattle, WA, March 9, 1985 NEW!

I’ve been on the hunt for some new ‘live’ music to add to the playlist collection, and I found this gem from Johnny Winter, one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time. Johnny was no slouch at the mike either. He was an excellent blues belter.

Tune us in as we pay homage to the blues this, and every, Tuesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. You simply cannot go wrong. We are totally free. Your money is no good here. And we are also free of advertising. We don’t accept any. In short, it’s all music all the time.

It’s Another Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Koko Taylor In the Spotlight, and Some Live Buddy Guy with Stevie Ray Vaughan Later, On this First Day of Summer, June 21, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’re back for another Tuesday Bluesday and we have some new blues today as we add the late, great Koko Taylor to our Spotlight list. And later it’s two great blues guitarists together live.

Today we put the great Koko Taylor In the Spotlight!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Koko Taylor NEW!

There’s no doubt about it: Koko Taylor is a blues powerhouse whose musical style encompassed Chicago blues, electric blues, rhythm & blues, and soul blues. She’s often called the Queen of The Blues, just as Aretha is called The Queen of Soul and Irma Thomas is called The Soul Queen of New Orleans. Come to think of it, that would make a fucking great playlist. But I digress because today, we put Koko Taylor In the Spotlight where she belongs.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: McCartney by Paul McCartney

Our only break in our blues programming today is to hear Sir Paul’s iconic 1970 debut album. The simple beginnings of an amazing post-Beatles career that’s still going strong as he turns 80 this week.

7:00 p.m. Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Lone Star Cafe, New York, April 14, 1986

Two blues guitar masters together is a real treat, and we close out our Tuesday Bluesday programming today with them live at the Lone Star Cafe in New York.

Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge is always a great take. Make this the day to join your friends from Germany, Switzerland, Norway, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Russian Federation, Chile, Australia, Texas, New York, North Carolina, Flori-DUH and points beyond.
