Happy Birthday, Tom Petty! We’re Sandwiched In PettyLand Today Around All That Great Stream, Wednesday, October 20, 2021

We celebrate Tom Petty’s life and musical contributions today on what would be his 71st birthday. We’re locked in on The Traveling Wilburys today (which also makes it a Wilbury Wednesday) and a great live stint in Lucca, Italy.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. WILBURY WEDNESDAY! The Complete Wilbury Sessions: Volume 1 & 3

The complete Wilbury’s treatment with outtakes, alternative versions, demos, rough cuts, special sessions, never-before-heard songs. Just over two hours of Wilbury musical magic.

Not only is this pertinent to Petty’s birthday, but the very first Traveling Wilburys album (Volume 1) was released 33 years ago this week, on October 18, 1988.

5:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Lucca Summer Festival, Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012

A great live performance by The Heartbreakers here that you won’t want to miss.

All Day Tom Petty Trifectas!

We’re not putting up a schedule on these. Suffice it to say that they’ll be running at the top of several hours of the day, all day and into the evening. You’ll just have to tune us in to listen in.

Great day to join our family of listeners around the globe as we celebrate the life and musical contributions of one of the most talented, humble and gracious artists ever to grace the planet. You will not regret it.

ZZ Top was started in Houston, Texas in 1969. For 51 years the trio of Dusty Hill (vocals, bass), Billy Gibbons (vocalist, guitarist), and Frank Beard (drums) made some of the best rock music around. Oddly enough, Frank Beard was the only member in the band without an outrageous beard. Today, we put them In the Spotlight.

We’re Kicking Out the Jams With Trifectas, Our Album of The Week, and LIVE DEAD, on Saturday, August 28, 2021

Good Morning, Weekend Warriors! We’re continuing in the Trifecta mode to start off the weekend, but this time with all new artists. We’ve also got the final airing of our fine Album of The Week, and LIVE DEAD later tonight.

The Trifecta is back with all new artists! See the schedule below.

Here’s Saturday’s musical schedule:

All Day Trifectas: Three-in-a-Row From Various Artists NEW!

11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan

12:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris

1:00 p.m. Eric Clapton

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino: Various Artists FINAL AIRING!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Boston Garden, Boston, MA, April 2, 1973 NEW!

I’ve seen many a concert in this legendary venue, which has now sadly been transformed into a mega-arena. It was supposedly done to improve the sound quality, but I think that’s utter bullshit. I digress. This show was just over three hours of sheer bliss. If you’re a Deadhead, come join the fun tonight.

Great day to tune us in. I do, of course, say that every day because I have to say something. We have many listeners from around the world. Music, as they say, is a universal language. We’re waiting for the U.S. to catch up…and catch on.

We Pay Tribute to Nanci Griffith, Give You J.J. Cale & Leon Russell Later, and An Afternoon of Trifectas, Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are again at mid-week and today’s big event is Nanci Griffith In the Spotlight, as we promised a couple of days ago.

Today we put Nanci Griffith where she rightfully belongs: In the Spotlight

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Nanci Griffith NEW!

We heard of Nanci Griffith’s passing on August 13 at the age of 68, and a sad day it was. Her songs have contributed so much to the careers of so many of her peers over the years. Today, however, we turn the mike over to Nanci Griffith her self as we present just over two hours of her music.

Raised in Austin, Texas, Nanci Griffith lived in Nashville where it was described she kept one foot in country music and one foot in folk music. She appeared on the show Austin City Limits a number of times over her career. During her career, she recorded 18 studio albums, 2 live albums, and released 17 singles.

7:00 p.m. J.J. Cale & Leon Russell In Session at Paradise Studios, Los Angeles, June 1979

Also in the session are Marty Grebb (Horn), Larry Bell (Piano), Nick Rather (Bass), Jimmy Karstein, and Ambrose Campbell (Percussion/Drums), Bill Boatman (Guitar), Pat “Taco” Ryan (Brass) and Shamsi Sarumi (Percussion).

Trifectas

Today, we also give you an afternoon of hour-opening trifectas:

5:00 p.m. Steely Dan

It’s Another Saturday Here and We’ve Got Linda, Emmylou and Dolly, The Final Airing of Our Album of The Week, LIVE DEAD, and The Return of The Trifectas, August 7, 2021

Hi Gang! It’s Saturday, but that’s just another day in retail hell for me. But you? We’ve got some great stuff today, and we’re switching up the format just a hair. Don’t get all alarmed. It’s not a new pattern.

Three women who have been friends for a very long time grace our airwaves today

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris & Dolly Parton: The Complete Trio Sessions

It has been a while since we aired this, but it’s sooooo good. This collection includes outtakes that were never released, alternate versions of those that were and, of course, the actual final songs that appeared on Trio I and Trio II. We hear the term “supergroup” an awful lot, but like a lot of things in music, it is never a term applied to women.

We are applying it here in The Mermaid Lounge and have always called this brilliant musical alliance of friends a supergroup. That is what they were.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne FINAL AIRING!

This is it! This is the final airing of Browne’s brand new album, so don’t miss it. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new album for you.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Honolulu Civic Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, January 23, 1970

This is our first repeat in two years. And it’s a great one. It’ll be like brand new. But, of course, every show from these road warriors is like brand new. Am I right?

Hourly Return of the Trifectas: Various Artists

We’re tossing in some great trifectas today in between Jackson Browne and The Dead:

6:00 p.m. Little Feat

7:00 p.m. Janis Joplin

8:00 p.m. Steely Dan

9:00 p.m. Talking Heads

Tune us in, people. We are totally free and without commercial interruption. You literally have to do not one thing except pull up a tab and click the link below. We collect no information and do not track your IP either.

We’re Under The Influence, Maria Muldaur’s In the Spotlight, and We’ve Got a Pile of Trifectas, Monday, June 14, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s the beginning of another week here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re all business this morning. We’ve got a great line up for you today.

We’re Under the Influence today at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists EXPANDED!

Drugs, booze, you name it. We’ve all done it in our lifetime, and plenty of musicians and bands have written songs about it. We’ve got them here today in our expanded and updated playlist. Don’t be fooled into thinking Got To Get You Into My Life is about a woman and doesn’t belong here. McCartney himself admitted that he wrote it about his love for weed.

In addition to the Beatles, you’ll hear The Velvet Underground, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, and many more.

4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer who began her career in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village as part of the folk music revival of the early sixties. She has continued to roll on singing not only folk and blues, but jazz, country, pop, and R & B. She’s also loaned her pipes to the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt, and is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Trifectas R’Us

We’re bringing back the trifectas today. It has been a while. We’ve got them scheduled as follows for your listening pleasure:

10:00 a.m. Aretha Franklin

2:30 p.m. Steve Winwood

6:00 p.m. Canned Heat

8:00 p.m. The Rascals

We hope you’ll tune us in today. We highly encourage this because we know we play the best damned music on the planet for free (no small print), non-stop 24/7. Just do it.
