Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light-programming day today, but it isn’t the quantity that counts. It’s the quality. We’ve got plenty of that here in The Mermaid Lounge.
Here’s Monday’s line-up:
12:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist
This is the playlist that generally reflects our attitude here at the radio station, with Country Joe & The Fish, Bob Dylan, Barry McGuire, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Joan Baez, and more!
6:00 p.m. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live in Concert
In 1987, Alison Krauss was signed to Rounder Records and released her first album, Too Late To Cry, at the age of 16. Shortly thereafter, she joined bluegrass and country band Union Station with Jeff White, John Pennell, and Mike Harman as her back-up band. This is a collection of live songs. All of the songs were recorded at the Louisville Palace on April 29-30, 2002, except for Down to the River to Pray, which was recorded at Austin City Limits.
Come on into The Mermaid Lounge, where there’s no tension and great music. We’re free. No credit card or personal information required. Ever.
Hello Everyone. I’m a D.J. here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, and will be providing content to the blog at various times. I’m pleased to be able to tell you about some of the major content additions we’ve made to the standard musical rotation over the past three weeks.
We’ve added great blues artists like Slim Harpo (The King Bee of the Blues), Little Walter, and Delbert McClinton. We’ve also added plenty of Peter Green’s version of Fleetwood Mac (great blues), and John Mayall’s Blues Breakers.
Some other artists we’ve included are Sting, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Christine McVie (without Fleetwood Mac), Eddie Cochran, The Electric Prunes, Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station), Bo Diddly, and The Blues Brothers.
We’ve also bolstered artists already in the rotation by adding tracks and collections, including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, Dr. John, Bruce Hornsby, The Grateful Dead, and Ry Cooder.
There’s also a great new flavor of New Orleans “local” bands, including The Daywalkers, Chance Bushman & Friends, and Dr. Saxtrum. We hope you’ll enjoy that.
