Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light-programming day today, but it isn’t the quantity that counts. It’s the quality. We’ve got plenty of that here in The Mermaid Lounge.
Here’s Monday’s line-up:
12:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist
This is the playlist that generally reflects our attitude here at the radio station, with Country Joe & The Fish, Bob Dylan, Barry McGuire, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Joan Baez, and more!
6:00 p.m. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live in Concert
In 1987, Alison Krauss was signed to Rounder Records and released her first album, Too Late To Cry, at the age of 16. Shortly thereafter, she joined bluegrass and country band Union Station with Jeff White, John Pennell, and Mike Harman as her back-up band. This is a collection of live songs. All of the songs were recorded at the Louisville Palace on April 29-30, 2002, except for Down to the River to Pray, which was recorded at Austin City Limits.
Come on into The Mermaid Lounge, where there’s no tension and great music. We’re free. No credit card or personal information required. Ever.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! I had a schedule switch and I’m opening today, so we have an early blog post.
Here’s Your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live!
This was the eleventh album for the band, but its first live album. All of the songs were recorded at the Louisville Palace (April 29 & 30, 2002), with the exception of Down To The River To Pray, which was recorded at Austin City Limits.
4:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues
Tom Petty was serious about the blues, and his band could certainly sing and play the blues. He often said he envisioned them as old men sitting around with their guitars singing the blues.
8:00 p.m. Van Morrison: Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl (2008) NEW!
This was the fifth live album released by Van Morrison. It was recorded on November 7 and 8, 2008, exactly forty years after the first iteration of Astral Weeks was released. Morrison produced this effort, insisting on just one rehearsal and no post-production. Essentially you hear what the audience heard the two nights it was recorded.
10:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers
Wildflowers is the second solo studio album (of three) by Tom Petty, who was joined in the studio by his bandmates and a collection of some of the best studio musicians in rock n’roll history.
