It’s Wide Open Thursday, Which Brings Our Very First Open Stream Day in a While! The Music Mermaid is in Charge, October 27, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got our very first wide Open Stream day in a long time today! The Music Mermaid is in charge with nothing on her slate. Who know what she’ll pick up.

We also give you Trifectas (three-in-a-row from a single artist) at the top of every hour from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.!

We’re on 24/7 and today we are free of programming as well as free of charge! Tune us in!

A Busy Saturday Brings Our ‘Water, Water Everywhere’ EP, Our AOW, Springsteen In the Spotlight, and LIVE DEAD!, September 24, 2022

We are busy as beavers here in The Mermaid Lounge as we give you our traditional “busiest” day of programming, including a belated birthday celebration for The Boss.

Yep, the planet earth is composed of 71% water; so is our programming today!

Here’s your Saturday musical landscape:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Sunshine Superman by Donovan FINAL AIRING!

We’re on the final airing of this great psychedelic effort, but we have a brand new one on tap for introduction tomorrow. Get this one in while you can! It was Donovan’s most psychedelic album.

12:00 p.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists

Water, like music, is a life essential. You’ll hear odes to water from Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Otis Redding, Neil Young, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Valerie Carter, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Al Green, Alison Krauss & Union Station, 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, Johnny Rivers, America, Donovan and more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Bruce Springsteen NEW!

Finally, Springsteen gets his Spotlight feature and we’re happy to wish The Boss a belated (only one day) 73rd birthday with this one. Give a listen to the guy who was a major pioneer in the ‘heartland rock’ genre.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The DuPont Gymnasium, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, May 7, 1970

Another repeat, but it was last aired in early 2020, so it’s like new. As is every performance by the world’s preeminent jam band. We’re working on new material going forward, but this is a great soundboard recording.

Saturday is a busy day her, but we’d like to remind you that wide Open Stream is still the majority of our daily fare from The Mermaid Lounge. All of our EP’s are multi-artist as well. The Music Mermaid does an impeccable job of keeping us in line here. Come on in and see for yourself!

It’s Friday and We’ve Got Otis Redding, Trifectas at the Top of Every Hour, and Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP Later, September 2, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great day lined up today as we feature our first night-time multi-artist EP at the request of some of our late-night listeners!

We feature our first EP at night this evening at the request of some of our late-night global listeners!

Here’s your musical lineup:

9:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding

The world first heard Otis Redding at the Monterey International Pop Festival. It would not be long after that performance that we would lose him. But his musical legacy lives on here in The Mermaid Lounge.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland, San Francisco, October 22, 1978

We have a repeat performance, but we haven’t aired this one since January 2021, so it’s virtually brandy new. And what does it matter anyway? It’s The Dead. The worlds ultimate jam and road band.

Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream running non-stop 24/7 at no charge to the listening public. We do this for the music, not the money. We accept no advertising, so we don’t pass that capitalistic chatter on to you. It’s all music, all day and night.

The Work Week is Back and We’ve Got The Hollies, Linda Ronstadt & a Trifecta Afternoon On Tap, Monday, July 25, 2022

Good Morning, Workers! We’re facing another work week and it starts off steamy both inside and out as we’ve got some brand new ‘live’ Linda Ronstadt later on, along with The Hollies and some Trifectas.

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies

Formed in Salford, England, in 1962, the Hollies were a force in music throughout the sixties and into the seventies and were most known for their distinctive three-part harmonies. But let’s not get too damned technical here: They were just a great band and one of the most influential British Invasion bands.

2:00 p.m. Open Stream with Afternoon Trifectas!

We haven’t had one of these afternoons in a while, so it is about damned time.

2:00 p.m. Guy Clark

3:00 p.m. Sam Cooke

4:00 p.m. Canned Heat

5:00 p.m. Valerie Carter

6:00 p.m. Norah Jones

7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Calderone Concert Hall, Hempstead, NY, January 29, 1975 NEW!

Linda Ronstadt was the christening act in the opening of the Calderone back in the day and Tom Rush was her opening act. This performance from 1975 was broadcast on WLIR-FM and most of the songs are from Don’t Cry Now and Heart Like a Wheel. I have seen Ronstadt perform live 39 times in my lifetime, and she never disappointed. Ever. This one is no exception.

Join your friends. We’ve got Croatia, Romania, Spain, the UK, France, Germany, Greece, The Faroe Islands, Australia, Canada, and some folks in Kansas, New York, and Florida on this morning. Make your Monday more tolerable.
