We Open With the Final Airing of Our AOW, Then Move To Our EP ‘The British Are Coming’ Playlist. And Later, We Have LIVE DEAD, Saturday, September 18, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s our usual Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge You will remember on Wednesday we had Music Festival day. We cannot find a really good recording of Summer Jam from ’73 at Watkins Glen, but we do have the next best thing. See below.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blue by Joni Mitchell FINAL AIRING!

We bid a fond farewell to Joni Mitchell’s masterpiece, Blue, today. Tomorrow there will be a brand new album awaiting you when you roll yourselves out of bed.

3:00 p.m. The British Are Coming: Various Artists

We’re back with our EP The British Are Coming which gives you music from The British Invasion (musically speaking) and beyond. You’ll hear The Beatles, The Who, The Zombies, The Rolling Stones, Yes, The Animals, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Kinks, The Dave Clark Five, Rod Stewart, The Bee Gees (not that Saturday Night Fever shit either), The Yardbirds, The Pretenders, Lulu, Them, Herman’s Hermits, Petula Clark, Blind Faith, The Spencer Davis Group, and more!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Summer Jam, Watkins Glen, NY, July 28, 1973 NEW!

You’ll remember our Music Festival Wednesday this week we talked about Summer Jam in 1973 at Watkins Glen. The bands were The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, and The Grateful Dead. We’re still searching for a decent recording of the entire event, but we’ve got the next best thing. This is the most-attended music event in known history, and you got all three bands for a mere $10. Are you kidding me?

This recording of The Grateful Dead (soundboard, so decent quality) is the closest we come since both The Allman Brothers Band and The Band join them on stage toward the end of their set. We hope you enjoy, and we will continue our search.

Great day to tune us in for sure. We’ve got our usual busy Saturday on tap, yet we still give you more hours of wide Open Stream than programmed music. That’s what we’re all about. We don’t charge, ask for a subscription, or your personal information. No forms to fill out. We don’t run commercials, and our DJ’s not the mouthy kind. Give us a shot.

Welcome to Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge With Our Final Airing of “Harvest,” Our Extended Country-Country Rock Playlist, and LIVE DEAD Later, on September 11, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers. Here in the Lounge, we love all kinds of music, such as REAL country (not bad pop bands with fiddles). Today we give them airtime, and we also celebrate the birth of country-rock with those who helped create the genre.

Here’s Saturday’s programming:

9:30 a.m. Album of The Week: Harvest by Neil Young FINAL AIRING!

Today is the final airing of Neil Young’s brilliant Harvest album. Tomorrow when you wake up, we’ll be featuring a brand new album. You won’t want to miss that one either!

12:00 p.m. Are You Ready for The Country: Various Artists

We’re back with our monthly homage to real country music (not bad pop bands with fiddles) and we celebrate the birth of country-rock which actually came out of Laurel Canyon in the seventies. You’ll hear Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Linda Ronstadt, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Emmylou Harris, Asleep at The Wheel, The Eagles, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Gram Parsons, The Band, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Pure Prairie League, Mudcrutch, and many more!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Broome County Arena, Binghamton, New York, November 6, 1977 NEW!

Another great performance by the world’s premier jam band. No. We don’t mean Dead & Company. We’re talking about the real thing. The Grateful Dead. Because anyone who’s a real deadhead knows it ain’t The Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia, no matter how hard they try to convince you otherwise.

Tune us in, folks. We can’t say it frequently enough: WE DON’T COST A THING. EVER. We run 24/7 uninterrupted, unless the sun explodes or something. We don’t ask for your credit card or personal information. And we sure in hell don’t run endless commercials between song sets.

Saturday Delivers A Great New Playlist, NOT The Album of The Week, The Actual Album of The Week, and LIVE DEAD, September 4, 2021

Here we are with our usual frenetic Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we wish you a great Good Morning. We’ve got some really cool stuff on tap, including a brand new playlist called Repeat After Me.

Today we’ve got a great new playlist of remakes and reboots along with the originals!

Here’s your Saturday line-up!

11:00 a.m. Repeat After Me: Various Artists NEW!

I was driving home from work when this idea came into my head and I wondered what the hell took me so long. I also have to tell you that I somehow feel this is simply the first volume. I thought of even more this morning. Here we have some great songs that have also been the beneficiaries of great remakes. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that is certainly the case in the music world. The best want to remake and pay tribute to the best songwriters and performers who have inspired their own music.

The playlist for this volume will be in the blog under the “Playlist” tab. Just click on it and scroll to the bottom.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of this great album. Get on it while you can. Tomorrow, we’ve got a brand new album to feature, and it’s one that just got its 50th Anniversary edition to boot!

7:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Surf N’ Burn by The Blue Stingrays

Last summer we added surf music to our repertoire, but we’ve not given it much of an audience this summer, regrettably I might add. As we work on the Labor Day Weekend, we’re going to play Surf N’ Burn by The Blue Stingrays. There’s a story behind this one. This band made one album, although the liner notes called them the premier surf music band of the sixties (when surf music first burst onto the music scene). The band is actually Mike Campbell and Ron Blair (of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), and Randall Marsh (drummer for Mudcrutch, another Tom Petty band). The did this anonymously because they didn’t want to detract from The Heartbreakers meteoric rise of 1997, the year the album was released. They didn’t particularly care if it even sold a copy (which it did; I have one). They did it because they love the sound of surf music.

The album was just picked up and re-released a few weeks ago. If you are a lover of guitars (and of Mike Campbell, simply one of the best guitarists on the planet), then there’s something about surf guitar music that can’t be explained. Tune it in and see for yourself.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, California, July 1, 1973

This is one of the few repeat performances we’ve played since starting LIVE DEAD three years ago, but it also hasn’t been aired since 2019. It’ll be like new, just like every live performance The Dead has done. We have several brand new never-before-played concerts in the bucket. We just need to get them ready.

Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge is pretty busy, and this one is no different. Give us a shot. We’ve got listeners from all over this morning, including Italy, Israel, Denmark, Sweden, the UK, France, Germany, The Russian Federation, Romania, Spain and even The Republic of Korea. We’re sitting here waiting on the U.S. (although we do have someone from North Carolina and someone from Texas this morning). Tune us in. Get with the damned program.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Boston Garden, Boston, MA, April 2, 1973 NEW!

I’ve seen many a concert in this legendary venue, which has now sadly been transformed into a mega-arena. It was supposedly done to improve the sound quality, but I think that’s utter bullshit. I digress. This show was just over three hours of sheer bliss. If you’re a Deadhead, come join the fun tonight.

Great day to tune us in. I do, of course, say that every day because I have to say something. We have many listeners from around the world. Music, as they say, is a universal language. We’re waiting for the U.S. to catch up…and catch on.

It’s Another Saturday Here and We’ve Got Linda, Emmylou and Dolly, The Final Airing of Our Album of The Week, LIVE DEAD, and The Return of The Trifectas, August 7, 2021

Hi Gang! It’s Saturday, but that’s just another day in retail hell for me. But you? We’ve got some great stuff today, and we’re switching up the format just a hair. Don’t get all alarmed. It’s not a new pattern.

Three women who have been friends for a very long time grace our airwaves today

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris & Dolly Parton: The Complete Trio Sessions

It has been a while since we aired this, but it’s sooooo good. This collection includes outtakes that were never released, alternate versions of those that were and, of course, the actual final songs that appeared on Trio I and Trio II. We hear the term “supergroup” an awful lot, but like a lot of things in music, it is never a term applied to women.

We are applying it here in The Mermaid Lounge and have always called this brilliant musical alliance of friends a supergroup. That is what they were.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne FINAL AIRING!

This is it! This is the final airing of Browne’s brand new album, so don’t miss it. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new album for you.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Honolulu Civic Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, January 23, 1970

This is our first repeat in two years. And it’s a great one. It’ll be like brand new. But, of course, every show from these road warriors is like brand new. Am I right?

Hourly Return of the Trifectas: Various Artists

We’re tossing in some great trifectas today in between Jackson Browne and The Dead:

6:00 p.m. Little Feat

7:00 p.m. Janis Joplin

8:00 p.m. Steely Dan

9:00 p.m. Talking Heads

Tune us in, people. We are totally free and without commercial interruption. You literally have to do not one thing except pull up a tab and click the link below. We collect no information and do not track your IP either.

If you haven’t heard this masterpiece yet, this is your last chance to hear it here. Chrissie Hynde delivers what we consider to be the album of the year with her covers of lesser-known, underappreciated Bob Dylan songs. She did this during lockdown using cell phone technology. Not to be missed.
