Afternoon Wide Open Stream with Trifectas
We’ve got a wide Open Stream all afternoon and into the evening with on-the-hour Trifectas:
3:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt
4:00 p.m. Three Dog Night
5:00 p.m. Marvin Gaye
6:00 p.m. Carly Simon
7:00 p.m. Paul McCartney & Wings
Tune us in. Join other listeners around the globe who know what we’re all about. We are totally free. There’s no advertising to kill the mood. And there’s no endless D.J. chatter. What are you waiting for?
Nothing like following up a Total Tuesday Bluesday with a Wilbury Wednesday. That’s the way it rolls this week. Today we give you their catalogue, followed by the boys individually to top the afternoon hours.
Here’s your Wilbury Wednesday line-up:
10:00 a.m. The Traveling Wilburys Complete: Volumes 1 & 3, Remixes and Extended Versions UPDATED!
Not to be confused with the Bootleg Series, which we ran last month. This particular edition of Wilbury Wednesday is composed of Volumes 1 and 3 (hint: They never made a Volume 2), and it also tosses in a few remixes, bonus tracks and extended versions of their two most well-known hits. The Bootleg Series is another thing entirely with special sessions and the like. We will be running that again next go-around.
Wilbury Trifecta Afternoon!
We’re running individual trifectas of each of the Wilburys this afternoon in their “other” musical lives.
2:00 p.m. Bob Dylan
3:00 p.m. George Harrison
4:00 p.m. Roy Orbison
5:00 p.m. Jeff Lynne
6:00 p.m. Tom Petty
Someone once wrote of The Traveling Wilburys that they are the only supergroup worthy of being called super and a group. I’m paraphrasing, of course, but it’s true. Let’s not also forget that they had the legendary Jim Keltner on drums, who chose the name Buster Sidebury. They are, without a doubt, the most popular supergroup of all time, and for good reason.
Before, in between, and after we run that wide Open Stream 24/7. We don’t stop when the programmingstops. We keep going like the Energizer Bunny on musical steroids. Tune us in. We’re free too. That makes it even better.
Good Morning, Bluesologists! I know that day will come when I’ll write 2021 by mistake. But that’s not today. We’ve got a great Tuesday Bluesday line-up going on today and we hope you’ll join us.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Winter NEW!
John Dawson Winter III is one of our favorite bluesmen here in The Mermaid Lounge. He’s got his own high-energy blues-rock style. Although not a pure bluesman, Johnny Winter was sought out by other bluesmen and jammed with many, including Muddy Waters, Roy Head and the Traits, Mike Bloomfield, Willie Dixon, and Big Walter Horton. Winter was groundbreaking in many ways and was recognized as one of the best guitarists in the business. You can learn more about him right here. Today, we kick off Tuesday Bluesday by putting him In the Spotlight.
We open up the afternoon to Open Stream, but open up each hour from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with Blues Trifectas!
2:00 p.m. B.B. King
3:00 p.m. Janis Joplin
4:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan
5:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Teaser and the Firecat by Cat Stevens
Tonight we have our second airing of our Album of The Week, and that’s how we close our programming for the day and open up the stream again.
We’re here again in The Mermaid Lounge streaming you the best music money cannot buy every day. That’s because we’re totally free 24/7. We make no profit. We do not accept advertising. We do not require your credit card. And we don’t want your personal information. Know what I mean?
Good Morning, my musical friends! We here in The Mermaid Lounge have decided that this is a pretty good day for a Totally Wilbury Wednesday, and so it shall be.
Here’s your mid-week line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Traveling Wilburys: The Bootleg Collection
Every poll ever taken in the past twenty years that I’ve seen has resulted in this band being remembered as the greatest supergroup of all time. And I fully concur. Today we’ve got a gem for you with outtakes, rough takes, alternative versions, final versions and special sessions. It’s a look inside the music making of The Traveling Wilburys. For those who have not yet immersed themselves in this band, you can explore the website right here. You can also watch this short documentary from George Harrison here. It’s all great fun, I assure you.
3:00 p.m. The Wilbury Trifecta Afternoon!
We get back to streaming for the rest of the day, but starting mid-afternoon we kick off trifectas by members of the band (although not Wilbury music). Do you get that? Or did I confuse you?
3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury)
4:00 p.m. Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Junior)
5:00 p.m. George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury)
6:00 p.m. Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury)
7:00 p.m. Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury)
Did you know that they changed their names again for Volume 3? And by the way, there was never a Volume 2. Just sayin’
This is a great day to make us your music source. Trust me. We’re totally free 24/7. We run no advertising. We don’t require a credit card or personal information. What else could you possibly want but a free radio station that spends it’s time pumping out music?
Gooooood Morning, Musicologists! We are hitting mid-week with the Women taking the helm. It starts out with a bang, we go back to our wide Open Stream, then in the afternoon we begin several hours of Trifectas!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Complete Trio Sessions with Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris
Yes, folks, just over two hours of brilliance from the only female supergroup (Trio) on the planet. You get outtakes, alternative versions, and never-before-heard material as three of the most spectacular voices in music banded and bonded for two of the greatest albums on the planet.
Later in the afternoon, we kick off some all-girl Trifectas!
4:00 p.m. Janis Joplin (with and without Big Brother & The Holding Company)
5:00 p.m. Lucinda Williams
6:00 p.m. The Supremes
7:00 p.m. Alison Krauss
8:00 p.m. Norah Jones
9:00 p.m. Joan Baez
Great day to tune us in, folks. You not only get to hear a lot of wide Open Stream today, but you get to hear a ton of great music from the women, something we believe no other station does. And best of all, no commercials and no charge.
Good Morning, Reggae-ologists! We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’re breaking out some great Reggae today to start off our musical programming. We’ve also got a series of new Trifectas debuting this afternoon!
Here’s Friday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: Toots & The Maytals
The Maytals were formed in the early 60s in Jamaica, and became one of the best known ska and rocksteady vocal groups, playing a key role in popularizing the Reggae sound. We put them here In the Spotlight today.
Trifecta Afternoon NEW!
We’ve got a set of four brand new Trifectas to help get you through the afternoon:
2:00 p.m. Fats Domino
3:00 p.m. Badfinger
4:00 p.m. Paul Revere & The Raiders
5:00 p.m. Jimi Hendrix
7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Endgame
You know, I look forward to Peter Jackson’s Beatle documentary coming up this month. Did the Beatles fight? They did. All bands fight. They’re like a family. But if the Beatles hated each other they way it was played up in the media, they would not have been able to remain as great as they were to the bitter end. Later on, they worked out their issues. It was real life under a media microscope.
Tune us in, folks. We’re here for you 24/7 completely free-of-charge every single day. We don’t ask for your personal info or a credit card, and we do not play commercials. Ever.
Good Morning, Musicologists! Here we are again at midweek. It’s Truck Day at the old slave shack, but I certainly have you covered musically in my absence. The Music Mermaid will see that everything is carried out to the letter.
Here’s your mid-week programming:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dan Fogelberg
This guy’s name doesn’t always roll off people’s tongue, but it should. Fogelberg was a singer, songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist who, for me, provided an oasis in the dry desert of the eighties music scene (absolutely not my favorite generation of music), along with a few others, most notably Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. People can debate an artist’s “best” album all day and night because that decision is subjective and personal. For me Souvenirs was not only his best album, but one of the best albums ever put on vinyl.
Starting mid-afternoon, we’ll open each hour with three-in-a-row from one artist.
3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris
4:00 p.m. Sam Cooke
5:00 p.m. Talking Heads
6:00 p.m. Van Morrison
7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years
The Beatles touched ground here on my tenth birthday. Up until that point, I had been listening to my sisters’ music pretty regularly. When the Beatles landed, it changed everything for me. In fact, it changed everything in the house because my sisters became fans pretty quickly as well. This is the other half of our House Band duo, and over the next few days we’ll be playing their stuff in chronological order.
Come on, people. Join your friends. Wednesday always seems to be fairly active early in the morning: Sweden, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, Russian Federation, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and the UK are on so far. These people know good music when they hear it.
