Here’s your Sunday Funday programming:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blue by Joni Mitchell NEW!

Joni Mitchell’s Blue turned 50 years old in June, so this feature has been on our “to do” list for a while. It’s finally here. This album is rightfully considered to be one of the greatest albums ever recorded, with Mitchell writing and producing the entire masterpiece. It was made right after her break-up with Graham Nash and during her intense relationship with James Taylor, and the songs reflect those events in her life. It was released on June 22, 1971.

Blue was Joni Mitchell’s fourth studio release in a career that gave us so many great albums. The New York Times referred to the album as one of the 25 albums that represented “turning points and pinnacles in 20th-century popular music.”

3:00 p.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

You know how much we love long players here in The Mermaid Lounge. It’s our way of focusing on musical genres. We’re working on Reggae right at the moment. Finding the music and the singers is half the fun. This is a great long player covering five hours of soul and R & B.

We bring you Irma Thomas, The Ronettes, The Shirelles, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Etta James, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Drifters, Stevie Wonder, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Curtis Mayfield, Edwin Starr, LaVern Baker, Ray Charles, James Brown, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Al Green, Aretha Franklin and many more!

Even the gods took Sunday off, so that means you can too. That also means it’s a great day to kick back and tune us in. I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but the sun is out here and we are in the mood for some great music as we go about our business. Join your friends from around the world. They know what we’re all about. So do we. It’s called music. Not money.
