It’s Saturday in The Lounge and We’ve Got ‘The Female Species’ EP, The Final Airing of Valerie Carter’s AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later, May 7, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists and Deadheads alike! We’ve got our usual great Saturday in front of us today with a great EP on tap to start the day’s programming off.

We start our day with songs including the words women, ladies, and girls in the title, lyrics, or both!

Here’s Saturday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Female Species: Various Artists

It’s not an all-women’s music day. That’s coming up later this month. But this EP is music with the words, women, girls, ladies and other entreaties in the title, lyrics or both. Women have been inspiring music since the beginning of time. We’ve got some great stuff for you here today, good and bad, happy and sad, you’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, The Boogaloo Swamis, John Mayall, Hot Tuna, The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Electric Light Orchestra, Percy Sledge, The Beatles, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, America, Roy Orbison, Billy Joel, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, and more!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Frost Amphitheatre, Palo Alto, CA, October 10, 1982

Another new one from the Dead, this one from Palo Alto. No two shows are ever the same from these guys, even on the same tour.

It’s Saturday and the official beginning of the weekend for most people. (Some of us have to endure the general consuming public for one more day.) It’s a great day to kick back, tune in, turn on, and drop out as one famous hallucinogenic master said. Just do it.

At Week’s End We’ve Got Our ‘In Your Dreams’ Multi-Artist EP and Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight Later, Friday, April 29, 2022

We’re winding down the work week today (unless, of course, you’re in retail hell). We’ve got our newest EP, ‘In Your Dreams’ along with Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight bringing up the rear.

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers, nightmares and other events that occur after dark.

Here’s your Friday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers and nightmares. We’ve got them in the title, lyrics or both.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel

We’re dusting this one off after a long winter’s nap. It’s time to break it out! Believe it or not, these guys met in elementary school in 1953 and began writing songs together. They are one of the best-selling groups of the 1960s, and songs like Sound of Silence, Mrs. Robinson, and Bridge Over Troubled Water reached number one on music charts worldwide. More than half a million people showed up in New York’s Central Park in 1981, which remains one of the most widely attended concerts in music history. What is not to love about these guys? They ‘ve made some of the best music on the planet, whether together or solo. But today, they are Simon & Garfunkel.

Great day to tune us in, folks, as is every day. We’ve got non-stop music, totally free of charge, 24/7. We don’t ask for a commitment of any kind, a credit card, or personal information. All we ask is that you help spread the word if you like us. We do not take advertising, so we don’t have money to spend on advertising.

Chris Hillman, Gram Parsons, and their Flying Burrito Brothers

Here’s your Monday, Monday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Repeat After Me, Volume 1: Various Artists

They say imitation if the sincerest form of flattery, and that is certainly true in the music world. We prove it today with a really fun playlist. We give you the original song, then the reboot as Linda Ronstadt sings Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (not to mention Little Feat and Randy Newman), Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers sing The Animals, Tracy Nelson sings Bob Dylan, Gregg Allman sings Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris covers Simon & Garfunkel, Three Dog Night covers Laura Nyro, Aretha Franklin covers Carole King, The Beatles sing Barrett Strong, and I think you get the message here. Tune this one in. We’ll have volume two on Wedesday!

3:00 p.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live at My Father’s Place, Roslyn, New York, November 28,1976

We’ve got a band here that helped pioneer the marriage between country and rock playing at a legendary venue. My Father’s Place at The Roslyn Hotel opened in 1971 and “created a scene that would influence music for decades to come,” according to the New York Times. They were spot on.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Guy Clark

I remember seeing this guy one very cold, snowy night as my friends and I were freezing our asses off running round Harvard Square in Cambridge getting stoned. We were freezing and one of the greatest music venues, Passim’s Coffee House, was open and serving stuff that was warm. We went in. The cover wasn’t expensive, so we took a table. And when Guy Clark came out, someone we’d never heard before, we had our minds completely blown. He’s been a favorite ever since, and is certainly one of the greatest singer-songwriters I’ve ever experienced.

Tune us in, folks. We’re here 24/7 at absofuckinglutely no charge to you. Ever. We’re also commercial-free and run more open stream than programming. We make it count.

Midweek Brings Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP and Puts Creedence Clearwater Revival In the Spotlight Later, Wednesday, April 13, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve hit our midweek stride and we’ve got the women of music front and center this morning. Five hours of uninterrupted music for your listening pleasure.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

Closing out today’s programming we have four guys from Berkeley, California who sound like they are straight out of the Louisiana Bayou. Swamp music at its best right here.

Before, in between, and all through the night, we’ve got that wide Open Stream! It doesn’t end with the programming. In fact, the bulk of the day is our no-repeat continuous music. All of it completely free. No subscription or credit card required. What’s not to love here?

It’s Sunday In The Mermaid Lounge With ‘The Original Sixties Rotation’ EP and Emmylou Harris’ “Luxury Liner” as Our AOW, April 3, 2022

Good Morning, Sixties Veterans! Today we’ve got one of the very first playlists we ever made, and the very first one we turned into an extended playlist, ‘The Original Sixties Rotation.’

Here’s Sunday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Luxury Liner by Emmylou Harris NEW!

Emmylou Harris’ fourth studio album is truly a thing of beauty. It is absolutely one of my all-time favorite albums with not one singular inferior song from start to finish. It was her second consecutive number one country album on the Billboard charts. She sings the songs of Gram Parsons, Chuck Berry, the Louvins, Rodney Crowell, Susanna Clark, for starters. The album also includes the cover of Townes Van Zandt’s haunting Pancho & Lefty which, subsequently, would become his best-known composition. You couldn’t ask for a better bunch of artists for help, with Nicolette Larson (duet vocals), Dolly Parton, and Fayssoux Starling providing duet and backing vocals, and a laundry list of brilliant musicians including members of The Hot Band, Albert Lee and James Burton on electric guitars, Hank DiVito on pedal steel, Glen D. Hardin on keyboards, and more. Just wow.

3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

I say this every time this EP and it’s sister (volume two) are up for playing: The music that inspired this radio station. You’ll hear Del Shannon, Little Eva, The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, The Walker Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Mary Wells, The Searchers, The Monkees, Sonny & Cher, Petula Clark, Glen Campbell, The Dave Clark Five, Johnny Rivers, The Supremes, Harry Nilsson, The Band, The Yardbirds, The Kinks, Simon & Garfunkel, Blind Faith, Janis Joplin, Tony Joe White, Barry McGuire, Marvin Gaye, The Who, Procol Harum, The Temptations, Fats Domino and more! That’s 98 songs over five hours of uninterrupted bliss.

It’s Sunday, people. No stress. No strain. No retail. Stay home. Enjoy your friends, family, and the music. We’re here 24/7 with no commercial advertising and no requirements for you to listen. Not one. Except, of course, a computer.

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re at midweek and we have the second volume of The Sixties Rotation, along with a celebration of Women’s History Month with our Soul Sisters playlist.

We’ll keep saying it: It’s a great day to tune us in! Before, in between, and after our programming we have that wide Open Stream. And we won’t cost you a penny.

We Close Out Women’s Week With Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, and The Traveling Wilburys Have The Album of The Week, Sunday, March 13, 2022

Good Morning, Gang! We’re running a bit early today, and I’m somewhat behind the eight ball. We’re closing out Women’s Week in fine style with our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP and it’s streaming right now!

Here’s today’s musical magic:

7:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

We close with the grand kahuna of our extended playlists as you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Carly Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Petula Clark, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Laura Nyro, Aretha Franklin, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Wendy Waldman, Eva Cassidy, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume 3 NEW!

There was actually never a second volume, adding to the offbeat mystique of this great supergroup. Another great selection of songs from the guys who also actually never traveled together (as in performing on the road). They were just friends having a great time playing music together, and it showed.

Tune us in. We’ve got Bolivia and Chile both joining the fun this morning. You could be having some fun here too. Because it is absolutely effortless and free. Just push that button below.

Saturday Brings a Mix of Our Usual and Our Tribute to The Women of Music, March 12, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today is Saturday and, if you’ve been listening to us, you know this is the busiest programming day of the week. Today we’ve got a great mix of musical material for you.

We’ve got our soul and R & B EP for you today, and the women are well represented!

Here’s your musical line-up:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Home Plate by Bonnie Raitt FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of this great Bonnie Raitt album, and we’re starting early this morning so I must get a move on. Needless to day, tomorrow we will have a new selection.

11:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

This is a great multi-artist list paying homage to the great soul and R & B singers of our time. You’ll hear Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Ronettes, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Irma Thomas, Curtis Mayfield, The Staple Singers, LaVern Baker, Nina Simone, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and more!

7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: The Ballads

This could be described as Linda Ronstadt doing what she does best but, then again, she sings so many genres so well that it’s hard to stand definitively on one single style of music. She refused, from the beginning, to be pigeonholed. You’ll love this playlist and we haven’t heard it for a while.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, Colorado, July 8, 1978 NEW!

We’ve aired The Dead’s 1985 Red Rocks show before, but this is a brand new soundboard recording of their 1978 show at Red Rocks, one of the most beautiful venues to catch a great jam band.

Come on, folks. It’s Saturday. While some of us continue to serve the entitled retail masses, you can be sitting back and enjoying all this great music for free. Yes, you heard that right. Or you read that right. We’re not going to bother you with subscriptions, credit cards, or take your personal information. I promise. No lie.
