Monday Morning Open Stream Leads to Steely Dan ‘Live’ in Houston and The Soul Men Later, April 19, 2021

We welcome you to the beginning of a new week here in The Mermaid Lounge. We start with Open Stream, but then move on to some really great programming.

We feature Steely Dan live at The Woodlands Pavillion today!

Here’s your Monday line-up:

1:00 p.m. Steely Dan Live at The Woodlands Pavillion, Houston, Texas, September 3, 1993

Today we feature one of the finest damned bands on the planet here today, live from Houston, Texas. I used to hear people say they couldn’t reproduce their sound on stage and I almost believed it…until I saw them live myself. Everyone’s a goddamned critic, especially those with no musical ability. I call bullshit.

7:00 p.m. The Soul Men, Volume One: Various Artists

I might as well tell you we kick off a new long-play soul and R & B playlist next month, so consider this a preview! You’ll hear Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Otis Redding (The Big O), Fats Domino, Freddie King, and many more!

Again, we open the week with light programming. But the programming we have is spectacular today. We are not-for-profit radio. We’re in it for the music. Give us a shot. You won’t regret it.

6:00 p.m. Out In The Cold: Various Artists

There’s nothing like a bit of the weather here in the studio, and we’re kicking out March in style with Linda Ronstadt, Martha & The Vandellas, Johnny Rivers, the Allman Brothers Band, Bill Withers, Joni Mitchell, Creedence Clearwater Revivial, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Dr. John, James Taylor, The Association, Bob Dylan and more!

We’re Back at The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge: 11/18/2020

Good Day, Music Lovers! We’re back here at the College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge doing the deed for you.

Cat Stevens, now known as Yusef Islam.

Here’s today’s bucket of knowledge:

November 18, 1956: Fats Domino appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, where he sang Blueberry Hill. The song would peak at #2 on the US charts.

November 18, 1964: The Supremes appear on the TV Rock n’ Roll Show, Shindig, and sing Baby Love and Come See About Me.

November 18, 1967: To Sir With Love by Lulu sits on the top of the singles charts for a fifth week.

November 18, 1968: Glen Campbell, a former session musician for Nat “King” Cole, Frank Sinatra and The Beach Boys, is awarded two Gold Records, one for Gentle On My Mind and the other for By The Time I Get To Phoenix.

The Jimi Hendrix double album, Electric Ladyland, reaches #1 on the US charts. Steve Winwood, Al Kooper, and Dave Mason appear on the album.

Randy Meisner, Jim Messina, Richie Furay, and Rusty Young — also known as Poco — make their debut at The Troubadour.

November 18, 1971: Procol Harum recorded a concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra; portions would later be released on vinyl.

November 18, 1972: Bill Withers appears on Soul Train, where he sings his hit Lean On Me, and its follow-up Use Me Up.

Danny Whitten, of Neil Young’s back-up band Crazy Horse, dies of a heroin overdose. This tragic event inspires Young to write The Needle and the Damage Done.

Steely Dan makes its debut on the music scene with the release of the song, Do It Again. It would be the first of many hits for them.

Cat Stevens’ Catch Bull At Four begins a three-week run atop the album charts. Stevens played 14 instruments during the recording of the album, his most successful LP.

November 18, 1989: Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville reign at the top of the Adult Contemporary charts for a third week with the song Don’t Know Much.

And that brings today’s lesson to a close.

The Ladies Kick Off The Festivities, Our Album of The Week is Back, and The Soul Men Kick Ass This Evening, Thursday, November 5, 2020

Yes sir! And if that isn’t enough for you, we’ve got some great three-in-a-row’s lined up today. You really need to be here. It’s better than the shit on television, especially with this real-time shitshow going on.

The Ladies are in command this morning.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4: Various Artists

It’s always a good day when the ladies are starting us out. Today we have volume 4 in our series, with Carly Simon, Lucinda Williams, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Sheryl Crow, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Carole King, Joan Baez, Phoebe Snow, and many more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor

We’re winding down here. After today, there’s only one more chance to hear this great album before we choose our new Album of The Week.

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

Another open-stream-type playlist that has become popular here in The Mermaid Lounge. This one features Bill Withers, Al Green, Wicked Wilson Pickett, Freddie King, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Otis Redding, Slim Harpo, The Four Tops, Fats Domino and more.

Call me biased, but this seems like a hell of a day to tune us in. Odds are you’ll find something you’ll like. Unless, of course, you’d rather pay for what you used to get for free. You know, before money became king. If that’s the case, I can’t help you.
