Good morning, music lovers! We have officially made it to the weekend and The Music Mermaid will deliver today with our Motown EP as the main feature!
Here’s today’s musical adventure:
9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Crosby, Stills & Nash by Crosby, Stills & Nash FINAL AIRING!
Today we say farewell to a groundbreaking album. It may have generated only two hits, but every song is recognizable and the great supergroup behind it comes to mind instantly. This was their only album before adding Neil Young to the lineup.
11:00 a.m. M is For Motown: Various Artists
It was indeed the music that moved the world. It was also the music that made America dance line never before. You’ll hear Barrett Strong, Eddie Kendricks, Eddie Holland, Edwin Starr, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Jackson Five, Kim Weston, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Marvin Gaye, Martha & The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Four Tops, The Isley Brothers, The Temptations, The Contours, Rare Earth, Mary Wells, Tammi Terrell, Diana Ross & The Supremes and more!
8:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Chrissie Hynde NEW!
Tonight we introduce Chrissie Hynde as our featured singer-songwriter. Not only was she the primary songwriter for the great rock band, The Pretenders, but she was also a founding member, their guitarist (a monster on that thing) and their primary vocalist. For those who may not be well acquainted with Chrissie Hynde, we put this here.
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.
