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?
