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.

We Open The Week on ‘The Psychedelic Express’ EP and We’ve Got Ry Cooder ‘live’ at The Record Plant Later, Monday, July 18, 2022

Good Morning, Mind Travelers! Yesterday was our Linda Ronstadt birthday bash here, so The Psychedelic Express is a day late leaving the station. But climb on board because it’s ready to go!

The Psychedelic Express leaves the station promptly at 10:00 a.m.

Here’s your Monday lineup:

10:00 a.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

Undoubtedly one of the most fun EP’s we have here in The Mermaid Lounge as we pay tribute to this genre with Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Beatles, the Electric Prunes, The Animals, Jefferson Airplane, Blues Image, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Donovan, Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Traffic, Cream, Dr. John, Procol Harum, Fleetwood Mac, The Who, Canned Heat, Tommy James & The Shondells, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, Mudcrutch, Blind Faith, The Grateful Dead, The Velvet Underground, Big Brother & The Holding Company and more! Five hours of mind-altering tunes!

7:00 p.m. Ry Cooder Live at The Record Plant, Sausalito, California, July 7, 1974

Speaking of Linda Ronstadt, Ry Cooder is one of her all-time favorites and she believes he’s still the best guitarist she’s ever met. If you’ve seen the Ronstadt doc The Sound of My Voice, you’ll know it’s a mutual admiration society. He’s a favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge too, and we’ve got a great performance from him at the Record Plant for you today.

Speaking of The Sound of My Voice, if you haven’t seen it yet, you should. It’s out there on YouTube. And you should tune us in today if you yearn for the days of the Summer of Love as our Psychedelic Express EP will take you back in time. Before, after and in between, we’ve got all that great wide Open Stream. Totally free of charge with no commercial interruption.

It’s Sunday In The Mermaid Lounge With Our New Album of The Week, and ‘Are You Ready For The Country’ On May 30, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s another Sunday here in The Mermaid Lounge and that’s usually the day we bring you a long-player to fill up the musical hours along with our brand new Album of The Week.

Asleep At The Wheel is just one of the great artists you’ll hear this afternoon!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Exodus by Bob Marley & The Wailers NEW!

Exodus was Bob Marley & The Wailers’ ninth studio release in June of 1977, and boasts six singles, including One Love/People Get Ready, Jammin’, Three Little Birds, and Turn Your Lights Down Low.

Consider this a preview for our newest upcoming longplayer covering Reggae, Ska, and World Music. It will hopefully be launched by next month.

3:00 p.m. Are You Ready For The Country? Various Artists

This marks the second airing of this great new playlist covering both traditional and country-rock, including Asleep At The Wheel, Neil Young (with and without Crazy Horse), Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Glen Campbell, The Byrds, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Carlene Carter, Roseann Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, and more!

Don’t know how it is where you are, but the weather is pretty dismal here on the East Coast. It’s cold. It’s rainy. And it’s a great day to hunker down with a blanket, a book and some great music.

Harrison & Clapton Live From Japan, It’s Mudcrutch Monday and They’re Live From Hollywood, and Episode 3 of The Shadow, Monday, December 14, 2020

Good Morning, Music Addicts! We’ve got some great stuff planned for today, including two live events. This is Mudcrutch Monday, by the way, and we’ve got live music from their 2016 tour!

Eric Clapton persuaded George Harrison to tour with he and his band in Japan after a 17-year hiatus. We have the music.

Here’s today’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. George Harrison & Eric Clapton Live in Nagoya, Japan 1991

George Harrison was persuaded by Eric Clapton to return to touring after 17 years away from the road. This music is from their 12-date Japan tour in 1991. All of the songs were recorded on December 2 and 5.

It should be noted that the drummer on this tour was none other than Steve Ferrone, who would go on to spend 25 years as drummer for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

4:00 p.m. It’s Mudcrutch Monday! Mudcrutch Live at The Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, June 26, 2016

This is a great bootleg of Mudcrutch’s performance at the Fonda Theatre during their 2016 tour. Stephen Stills turned out to be a surprise special guest at this show. This is one of my deepest regrets in life now that Tom Petty is gone: Missing the 2016 show in Boston where Mudcrutch blew the roof off the House of Blues (according to a friend in attendance), and recorded the definitive version of the great song, Hungry No More. I may never recover.

8:00 p.m. The Shadow: 03 Death From The Deep NEW!

Who has been sinking all of these ships of many country origins, of various sizes and with various functions? I’ll be damned if I’m going to tell you. You will have to listen to see what The Shadow knows.

Come on, people. It’s Monday. I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but it’s pretty damned dreary here. I’m already tuned in with my headphones on. What are you doing?

the Last Waltz-2

10:00 a.m.    The Band: The Last Waltz

If someone were to ask me the greatest American band next to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, it wouldn’t be The Eagles. It would be these guys. They had a career that spanned decades and hundreds of songs in their own right, after starting their career as Bob Dylan’s back-up band. The Last Waltz was a fitting farewell for The Band, with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, and Van Morrison taking part. Here’s the music. We’ll be live streaming the movie in the next few weeks.

3:00 p.m.    Terry Gannon, Ph.D.: Presentation on Climate at the Independent Institute on December 6, 2017

Is it real? Or isn’t it? Terry L. Gannon received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and device physics from the University of California at Santa Barbara. In climate science, Dr. Gannon’s technical background in semiconductor science (quantum mechanics, optical phenomena, multi-variable non-linear systems and computer modelling) has enabled him to examine climate change theories comprehensively.

5:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers: Deep Cuts, and Lesser Knowns

Tom Petty’s B-sides are pretty much as good as his hits, whether he’s with the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, The Traveling Wilbury’s or solo. Enjoy this one.

7:30 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Study for Murder

8:00 p.m.     Abby Martin with Peter Joseph: Abolishing Capitalism
