Back to Monday With Fats Domino, The Moody Blues, and Our ‘By The Numbers’ Playlist Later, November 15, 2021

Good Morning, Folks! We’re back to Moan-Day all over again with a great line-up, including a couple of spotlight features, one brand new!

It’s no secret that The Fab Four were big time Fats Domino fans, and so are we! Today he’s In the Spotlight.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Fats Domino

Was the man from New Orleans the first to play rock n’ roll? I think that could be the case. This guy was making sounds nobody else was making back in the day. He was certainly a bona fide pioneer of the craft, of that there is no doubt. His first single, The Fat Man, is credited as the first rock n’ roll record and the first to sell more than a million copies. Between 1955 and 1960, Fats Domino had eleven Top 10 U.S. hits on the Billboard charts. He sold more than 65 million records during his groundbreaking career.

3:30 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Moody Blues NEW!

We have a couple of live performances of these guys, but we thought it was an appropriate time to put a spotlight feature together in light of Graeme Edge’s passing on November 12. He was their drummer and the last original band member. We bring you the best of the Moodies today.

7:00 p.m. By The Numbers: Various Artists

We thought it was about time to break this one out again. Here are some great songs with numbers in the title, lyrics, or both! You’ll hear James Taylor, The Mamas & The Papas, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Chicago, Three Dog Night, J.J. Cale, Mudcrutch, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Stevie Nicks, Shawn Colvin, Rosanne Cash, The Searchers, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Paul Simon, Wilson Pickett, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Johnny Rivers, The Byrds and more!

Listen, people. Monday’s a really busy day here in The Lounge. Lots of listeners start off our week. We’ve got the crowd from Germany, Denmark, Italy, Ireland, Canada, (Texas, shhh), Australia, Portugal, Spain and points beyond this morning. Some of these freaks have been on all night. Tune us in. Start your week off right.

We’re at Midweek With Our Newly Expanded House Playlist and The Hollies In the Spotlight, Wednesday, September 29, 2021

Welcome to Midweek, Music Lovers! Last evening we worked on an expanded house playlist and we think you’re going to love it! Stick around and see for yourself!

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

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

We spent some time on our house playlist and it definitely has that peace, love, understanding, social justice and revolution vibe. We’ve got a bunch of great artists including The Beatles, Country Joe & The Fish, CSNY, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Cat Stevens, James Brown, Sam Cooke, The Band, Woody Guthrie, Donovan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Lennon, Nina Simone, Peter, Paul & Mary, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Buffalo Springfield, Phil Ochs, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and many more! It is now officially one of our EP’s and another upgrade is in the wind for down the road.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies

Undoubtedly one of the great British Invasion bands. We haven’t heard this one for a while, so it’s long overdue.

Before, in between and after we have wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. Sounds like a pretty good day to open those ears to something completely different in radio!

It’s Friday and We’re ‘Under The Influence’ of Some New Trifectas, and We Put CSNY In the Spotlight Later, September 24, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! For most of us it’s the week’s end…but I’ve got one more day. But it matters not, people. The music is great today. You’ll see what I mean.

The Traveling Wilburys remain the greatest supergroup of all time for us, but these guys are right behind them.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Booze. Drugs. Legal or illegal. Whatever your poison. We’ve pretty much all been under the influence at one time or another. And it has always provided a topic for the music industry. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, Donovan, Linda Ronstadt, The Temptations, The Beatles, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen, Glenn Frey, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and more.

Afternoon Music Trifecta Afternoon NEW!

We continue to build our library of trifectas and premier several new ones today.

3:00 p.m. Three Dog Night

4:00 p.m. Carole King

5:00 p.m. Van Morrison

6:00 p.m. Sam Cooke

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The Traveling Wilburys reign supreme as the best supergroup of all time. But these guys were right behind them. Yes, they should be called Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young, but we think they were at their best with Young in the fold.

Again I say, it’s a great day to tune us in. It always is. So, what the hell are you waiting for anyway? We’re 24/7. We’re free. We do not run any advertising. We do not require a subscription. And we don’t ask for your personal information.

Sam Cooke was a singer-songwriter who was one of the most influential soul artists of all time.

We’re Under the Influence today at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists EXPANDED!

Drugs, booze, you name it. We’ve all done it in our lifetime, and plenty of musicians and bands have written songs about it. We’ve got them here today in our expanded and updated playlist. Don’t be fooled into thinking Got To Get You Into My Life is about a woman and doesn’t belong here. McCartney himself admitted that he wrote it about his love for weed.

It’s a Busy Saturday With Linda Ronstadt ‘Live’ in LA, Marvin Gaye In the Spotlight, LIVE DEAD, and the Final Airing of ‘Exodus’ On June 5, 2021

Good Morning, Rockologists! It’s another fine, frenzied Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge! We’ve got a bunch of great stuff sprinkled amidst all that great Open Stream! Tune in!

Linda Ronstadt is live at The Universal Amphitheatre

Here’s your Saturday programming:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, October 3, 1977

This was the eleventh consecutive night for Ronstadt’s Simple Dreams tour back in ’77, added due to continued ticket demand. She was riding high in those day. I saw the tour in Boston and upstate New York, only two of the forty I would see her perform during her career.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exodus by Bob Marley & The Wailers

This will be the final airing of Exodus as our Album of The Week. When you roll your butt out of bed tomorrow morning, we’ll have a brand new album in focus.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye

Despite his many personal problems, Marvin Gaye was a musical marvel who was instrumental in shaping the Motown sound, first as a studio musician, then as a major artist with a string of hits. Because of this, he was often called The Prince of Motown. We put him In the Spotlight today.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Thelma Theatre, Los Angeles, December 12, 1969 NEW!

We go waaaaay back in time for this one, kids! Another performance by the ultimate jam band.

As I say every day: This is a great day to tune us in. Because every day is a great day to tune us in. No lie. We’re free. We do not accept advertising so there’s no untimely interruptions, and our DJ’s are practically mute.

Thursday Brings Another Open Stream Start Followed by Our Album of The Week and New ‘Live’ Warren Zevon, June 3, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We open up with Open Stream, then we pick up the programming pace with our second to last airing of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Exodus album plus new live Warren Zevon broadcast by the BBC.

We’ve got new live Warren Zevon in our 7:00 p.m. slot

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exodus by Bob Marley & The Wailers

We’re winding down on this weeks’ AOW offering. Our final airing will be Saturday. Many feel this is The Wailers’ finest album, and it did offer several great hits (Jammin’, One Love/People Get Ready, Three Little Birds), but I say it’s hard to pick this band’s best album. You decide.

7:00 p.m. Warren Zevon Live at Hammersmith Odeon, London, January 25, 1988 NEW!

This is new to us here in The Mermaid Lounge, and it was broadcast by the BBC back in the day. There is none of the usual open and closing remarks, but the songs are great. A tortured soul here, an imperfect person for sure (aren’t we all), a guy who burned some bridges in his time, but a musical genius nonetheless.

It’s Thursday and we’re over the hump. Treat yourselves by tuning us in. What could be better?
