Today It’s All About The Ladies, Plus McCartney’s CHOBA B CCCP is Our AOW, Sunday, July 18, 2021

Good Morning, Kids! It’s Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge and it’s a total mermaid kind of day starting mid-afternoon. Before that, though, we’ve got a great Album of The Week for you.

Ladies Day Out is up at 3:00 p.m.!

Here’s Sunday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: CHOBA B CCCP by Paul McCartney NEW!

The album title translates to Back in The U.S.S.R. and is the seventh studio album by Paul McCartney. It was released in October 1988 exclusively in Russia. It was released worldwide in 1991. The album is live in-studio covers of some of the great rock n’ roll hits that inspired so many artists of the sixties, including The Beatles, The Stones, and many others. This is a great album, proving that McCartney can rock with the best of them. The man’s career has spanned six decades now, and he’s still going. He’s what we call a living legend.

3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

The ladies take over for five uninterrupted hours of bliss at mid-afternoon. This extended playlist features Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Carla Thomas.

Before, in between, and after it’s our usual wide Open Stream rotating more than 27,000 songs at the whim of The Music Mermaid. Tune us in.

Saturday Brings Us Warren Zevon Live in Boston, A New ‘Live Dead’, The Soul Sisters, and the Final Airing of our Album of The Week, April 10, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists. It’s a great menu today here in The Mermaid Lounge, where music is the drug, and we’ve got something for everyone.

We start the day with Warren Zevon in Boston.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Warren Zevon Live at Club Metro, Boston, Massachusetts, September 29, 1982 NEW!

I did not catch this particular show, but I had the pleasure of seeing Warren Zevon live at The Berklee Performance Center around the same time. His plane was late, the show started two hours late, but he was on his game. Truly one of the most tortured souls on the planet, but one amazingly talented guy and a hell of a singer-songwriter.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Saturate Before Using by Jackson Browne FINAL AIRING!

The final airing of this great album is at 3:00 p.m. today. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, there will be a brand new selection gracing the front page of the blog.

6:00 p.m. The Soul Sisters, Volume One: Various Artists

We’ve got a little bit of soul for you today, brought to you by Aretha Franklin, The Marvelettes, The Staple Singers (featuring the great Mavis Staples), The Shirelles, Barbara Lewis, Little Eva, Fontella Bass, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Kim Weston, Carla Thomas, and many more!

10:00 p,m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Memorial Coliseum, Sacramento, California, August 12, 1972 NEW!

Another new performance from the road by the world’s premier jam band! Another one of thousands of Grateful Dead performances captured for music history.

Tune us in. It’s Saturday, the first official full day of the weekend. This is the place to be!

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s Friday once again, and we’ve got a pretty cool line-up for you today, including a live performance by Little Feat!

The one and only Little Feat.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Deb’s Stream: By the Numbers, Various Artists

We’ve got a great selection of songs here with numbers in the title or the lyrics.

3:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Theatre, London, England, August 4, 1977

One show of a four show run at London’s famed Rainbow Theatre by one of the greatest bands of all time. It’s a personal thing. Like the Dead isn’t the Dead without Garcia, Little Feat isn’t Little Feat without Lowell George.

7:00 p.m. The Soul Sisters, Volume 1: Various Artists

Tune us in at 7:00 p.m. to hear Aretha Franklin, Martha & The Vandellas, Irma Thomas, Little Eva, Carla Thomas, Kim Weston, The Ronettes, Ann Peebles, Fontella Bass, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Diana Ross & The Supremes, and many more!

Today’s NOLA Treat? The Magnolia Sisters! We’ve Also Got Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Updated All-Girl Revue Too, on Friday, February 19, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today is a very exciting day here in The Mermaid Lounge as we feature The Magnolia Sisters, the only all-woman authentic Cajun music band. We’ve also got Creedence and our newly-updated All-Girl Revue Too.

The Magnolia Sisters, the only all-woman authentic Cajun band.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Magnolia Sisters Live at The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, May 23, 2015 NEW!

This amazing collection of women is anchored by Ann Savoy (pronounced sa’vwa), perhaps one of the most accomplished musicians on the planet that nobody ever really heard of. I urge you to read about her here, and to check out her website here. This is the kind of stuff I live for. I first heard her when she recorded with Linda Ronstadt as The Zozo Sisters. They made a brilliant Grammy-award nominated album together called Adieu False Heart. This collaboration marked the first time Savoy recorded in English. Ever since then, I’ve been on a hunt for her music and was able to score two CDs by The Magnolia Sisters. These were added to the station’s standard rotation last evening. The hunt continues until I am satisfied, as she has also recorded with her husband, her children, and with her swing band, Ann Savoy and Her Sleepless Knights.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

One of my all-time favorite bands here. It’s only fitting that we play them during our New Orleans Mardi Gras week. Here we have four guys from Berkeley, California who sound like they were born on the bayou (pun intended, of course).

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too UPDATED!

This was the second all-woman playlist we ever put together for the radio station, and I spent time yesterday updating and expanding the selection. We are continually amazed how women are ignored in the music world, and we intend to increase our focus on female singers and musicians. In this playlist, you will hear Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Linda Ronstadt, Norah Jones, Patti Smith, Mary Wells, Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Emmylou Harris, Laura Nyro, Shawn Colvin, Carly Simon and more!

This is a great day to tune us in. Authentic Cajun music is underappreciated, and to be exposed to it via an all-woman band is even better. We are free. We do not require a “subscription,” your credit card, or your personal information. All you need to do is click the link below.

We’re Paying Homage to Rhythm & Blues Today, Friday, April 24, 2020

Throughout the sixties, R & B became the inspiration for many, many of the bands we feature here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, including both The Beatles and The Stones.

1:00 p.m.   Sweet Soul Music 1966: Various Artists

1:00 p.m.  Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers   NEW!

Wildflowers was the second solo studio album by Tom Petty, and it was released on November 1, 1994. In spite of Petty’s desire to break free of the constraints of the band, he used most of his compadres as session musicians. The album resulted in four single releases, the most successful of which was You Don’t Know How It Feels. The other three were It’s Good To Be King (my all-time favorite Petty song), You Wreck Me, and A Higher Place. Read more about the album and the contributors here

4:00 p.m.   The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists

Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Mary Wells, Carla Thomas, Little Eva, and more.

Eric Clapton has a few friends over, and they ain’t social distancing. He is joined by Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Joe Cocker for a great repertoire of songs. Enjoy!

It’s Sunday. A day of rest. Take advantage and tune us in.
