Before, in between and after our programming, The Music Mermaid delivers our big, wide Open Stream for you. We promise you won’t hear the same stuff over and over and over. Best of all, we accept no commercial advertising and do not employ those rah-rah chatty, obnoxious DJ’s who love to hear themselves talk. It’s all about the music.

7:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & Spyboy Live at Kongresshaus, Zurich, Switzerland, January 20, 1997

Emmylou Harris never, ever disappoints. She has been a stalwart of the country music industry for decades and has refused to be tied down to any one style. With her band Spyboy, she gets back to basics with a stripped-down approach to her music. This was a great period in her career.

We’re edging our way closer to the weekend, kids. No reason why you can’t enjoy yourselves on the journey. Great music will help you get there in style. We’re on 24/7 and we’re totally free. We also never accept commercial advertising.

4:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Guy Clark

The late, great Guy Clark takes his second spin as our featured singer-songwriter for the week. I have a hard time picking a favorite from this guy but Texas1947 is pretty spectacular.

8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys

They were the greatest supergroup ever. There may never be another like them. They were just five guys who became friends, hung out, and played music together. That’s how the legend of the Wilburys began. Tonight we put them In the Spotlight where they belong.

We are on 24/7. Before, in between and after our programs, The Music Mermaid treats you to our wide Open Stream of 27,000 songs. We’re totally free of charge and we do not run any commercial advertising. Ever. Give us a whirl.
