Welcome to Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge With Our House Playlist EP, The Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later, April 23, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists and Audiophiles! It’s another Saturday. Thankfully. And we’ve got a great playlist here with a lot of shit to say about the state of the nation sprinkled in…from the last time we were this pissed off. Call it a musical history lesson.

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

Today we start the fun with our House EP, just over five hours of music with Barry McGuire, The Temptations, Edwin Starr, Peter Tosh, The Beatles, Genesis, T. Rex, The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Country Joe & The Fish, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, CSNY, Pink Floyd, The Animals, Ten Years After, The Plastic Ono Band, Billy Joel, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Sam Cooke, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, Three Dog Night, Jimmy Cliff, Richie Havens, Marvin Gaye, The Association, Phil Ochs, Tom Rush, Pete Seeger, The Band, Nina Simone, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Common Sense by John Prine

We bid a fond farewell to this great Priney album today. There’s a reason why this guy is one of the most respected songwriters on the planet. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection for you! And we’re sure you’ll love it.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA, May 11, 1991 NEW!

The Dead at Shoreline again. We’ve aired a couple of others from this venue. This particular show was a benefit for the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund, and was at a time when a guy named Bruce Hornsby was on keys for the band. Enjoy.

Tune us in, people. I don’t know what else we can say to convince you. We have listeners from around the world and our U.S. listeners are definitely picking up. We have no money for advertising because we do not have any income from advertising. You’ll never hear that on this station. Get with the program, people.

Under a Blizzard Warning in Beantown, and We’re Spinning Our House Playlist EP, Giving You The Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later, Saturday, January 29, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! The snow’s flying. The wind’s blowing. And the music’s flowing. We’ve got a great line-up for you today, no matter what your weather is.

Our very own EP starts at 11:00 a.m. today and runs uninterrupted for just about five hours

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

It’s that magic time again. Our House Playlist calls, and we give you Barry McGuire, the Temptations, CSNY, Pink Floyd, Peter Tosh, Edwin Starr, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Donovan, Jimmy Cliff, Cat Stevens, The Association, Marvin Gaye, The Band, Arlo Guthrie, George Harrison, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan FINAL AIRING!

Today is the final airing of this week’s Album of The Week, Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan. Get it while you can. Tomorrow, there will be a brand new featured album when you roll out of bed.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Boston Garden, Boston, MA, May 7, 1977 NEW!

The Dead bring their Wall of Sound to the fabled Boston Garden for this one, vintage 1977. Another great soundboard recording for your listening pleasure from the world’s premier road and jam band.

Well, gang, we’re rolling here in The Mermaid Lounge. The good news is that we will keep on keeping on through this New England blizzard. Be sure to join your friends from around the globe today!

We Close Out The Week With The #BecomeUngovernable House EP and Some True Confessions, Friday, October 29, 2021

Good Morning, Pettyologists! The month is coming to a close quickly and we’ve got just a couple of more things to squeeze in, one of them coming this evening. Read on!

We’ve got Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on The True Confessions Tour later

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

This is one of our favorites here. It started small and became an EP a little over a month ago. We’ve got some great music lined up over the afternoon hours coming from this excellent multi-artist long player.

7:00 p.m. Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Cal Expo Amphitheatre, Sacramento, CA, June 12, 1986

We’ve got a tour where Petty and his mates were not necessarily the headliners, but that didn’t seem to matter to either them or the audience. This is where the seeds were planted for a great musical match and where Mike Campbell said that the band truly learned how to improvise on stage. He credited Dylan with that lesson. This is one of those “don’t miss” moments.

Come on, folks. What the hell are you waiting for? Your friends from around the planet are out there right now listening to us and you need to find a way to join them. Hey, this isn’t rocket science. It’s Internet radio.

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of “Hard Promises” Followed by Our House Playlist, Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have another light programming day on tap. But what we have to offer is pretty potent, including our House playlist.

Today we bring you some of the music that inspired the radio station!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Not Our Album of The Week: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Hard Promises by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers NEW!

This is an occasional feature here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hard Promises, released on May 5, 1981. It’s hard to imagine an album this good coming right on the heels of The Heartbreakers’ breakout album, Damn The Torpedoes! (last week’s Album of The Week, by the way), but it did.

It’s true that The Waiting was the anchor of Hard Promises, but there’s also A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me), Nightwatchman, A Thing About You, Something Big, Insider (featuring Stevie Nicks), and one of my favorite Heartbreaker songs of all time, Kings Road.

4:00 p.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

This is nearly three hours of the music that originally inspired me to start this crazy endeavor to begin with. It is due for an upgrade soon, but it’s still one of the best playlists we feature with Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Animals, The Byrds, The Who, The Chambers Brothers, The Temptations, John Lennon, T. Rex, Barry McGuite, Edwin Starr, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joan Baez, Peter Tosh, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. It’s midweek. We all need a break. This is the perfect opportunity, is it not?

Our Official House Playlist, Our Album of The Week, and Some Supergroup Music Await You on Thursday, March 18, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! After a day of Open Stream, we’re back with some programming here in The Mermaid Lounge! We’ve got a fine collection of material here for you today.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is one of the supergroups you’ll hear later tonight!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

We kick off the day with some great music. In fact, some of the music that helped inspire me to start this radio station. You’ll hear Bob Dylan, Barry McGuire, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, The Beatles, John Lennon, Ten Year’s After, The Who, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Songbird by Eva Cassidy

The newest addition to our women’s line-up is Eva Cassidy, who died tragically at the age of 33 from cancer in 1996. We are winding down on Songbird. We will have one more airing on Saturday before choosing a new album. Don’t miss it!

7:00 p.m. Sounds of The Supergroups: Various Artists

We haven’t heard this one in a long while, so tonight we pay respects to the supergroups. This playlist features Derek & The Dominos; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; The Traveling Wilburys; Cream; The Highwaymen; Blind Faith; and Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris (yes, a bona fide supergroup even though the male dominated rock world never even mentions them in association with the word).

Tune us in. We’re free all the time, we run uninterrupted 24/7, no advertising, no “subscription” required, and no personal information requested. Did I mention you don’t need to take your credit card out of your wallet?
