Friday Brings Music From Laurel Canyon and Puts Paul Simon In The Spotlight Later, August 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’ve finally made good on our threat to upgrade and update the former ‘Echoes From The Canyon’ playlist. We think you’re going to like it and you can read more below.

Today’s feature is music from Laurel Canyon. Here we have Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons, both members of The Byrds back in the day.

Here’s today’s musical menagerie:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists UPDATED AND UPGRADED!

Laurel Canyon and the cross pollination it inspired among musical friends was magical, but it didn’t end with the 60’s. There was a second wave of people who moved in and took part in that magic, including Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, J.D. Souther, Carole King, James Taylor and others. They join The Doors, Canned Heat, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas & The Papas and others from the first wave.

We’ve updated this playlist to over four hours of great music, officially making it our newest extended player. Oh yeah, we’ve also changed the name.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

We haven’t heard from this guy for a while, so it’s about time. This playlist features his music from his partnership with Art Garfunkel to his solo work.

It’s another crazy hot and ugly weather day here in the Boston area. It has been this way most of the summer. We’re hoping it comes to an end outside, but we hope to keep it hot in The Mermaid Lounge (music-wise, that is) as we move into fall with some new stuff. In the meantime, it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy, as they say. Tune us in.

Happy Sunday Funday here in the lounge, where we give you our Ladies Day Out long player and a brand new Album of The Week dedicated to a rock n’ roll pioneer.

The Beatles hanging out with Fats Domino, a rock n’ roll game changer who should not ever be forgotten

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino (Various Artists) NEW!

The man from New Orleans was truly a pioneer in rock n’ roll, and his contemporaries knew that. So did the bands he inspired. They got together to pay him tribute. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (with an exceptional version of I’m Walkin’), Paul McCartney, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Los Lobos. Lucinda Williams, Art Neville, Robbie Robertson, Irma Thomas & Marcia Ball, Corinne Bailey Rae, Bonnie Raitt & John Cleary, Norah Jones, Bruce Hornsby, John Lennon and many more.

3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

At mid-afternoon, we turn the festivities over to the women of music. I hesitate to say rock n’ roll because so many genres are represented in this playlist. You’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, The Pretenders (Chrissie Hynde), Carly Simon, Aretha Franklin, Laura Nyro, Bonnie Raitt, Cilla Black, Ann Peebles, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Emmylou Harris, Maria Muldaur, Eva Cassidy, Lulu, Wendy Waldman, Tracy Chapman, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Baez, Valerie Carter, Dolly Parton, Carla Thomas, Carole King, and so many more.

Today we have lots of listeners from Germany, Belgium, France, the UK, Sweden, The Faroe Islands, Israel, Italy, Canada, and the Russian Federation. That’s because they have great musical taste.

Monday Rolls Around Again With Two Multi-Artist Streams and Bonnie Raitt Live In Studio, August 9, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s another Monday in The Mermaid Lounge (ho hum). It’s hot. It’s sticky. And it’s ugly out there. But it’s very cool here in the lounge.

We’ve got some vintage Bonnie for you today!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Deb’s Stream: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck

Good luck has never been my specialty, especially in the love department. At my advanced age, I don’t even mess with that shit anymore. But I digress. Here we have others whose luck has sometimes been good, sometimes been bad, and sometimes has been just pure dumb luck. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Alison Krauss & Union Station, The Eagles, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Jethro Tull, Fats Domino, The Wallflowers, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, and more.

3:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt Live In-Studio: The Wonderland Tape, August 5, 1977

Enjoy this young Bonnie Raitt selection. Some of this was used for broadcast on Dutch TV. Joining Bonnie on stage was Freebo on bass and tuba, Will McFarlane on guitar, Marty Grebbs on keys and sax, and Dennis Whitted on drums. Bonnie is on vocals and slide, as always.

7:00 p.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists

As they say, nighttime is the right time, and these artists prove it. We take you right up to the witching hour with The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Van Morrison, The Animals, The Band, Tom Petty, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Kinks, The Electric Prunes, Phoebe Snow, The Ronettes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Sam Cooke, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Poco and more.

Join us. You won’t regret it for one musical moment. We promise.

We’re at Midweek With The Neville Brothers In the Spotlight, and Badass Guitarists: Volume One, on Wednesday, August 4, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers across the planet! Here we are at another midweek. We have a lot of wide open stream today, but we have some great programming as well!

Today we have a brand new Spotlight, featuring The Neville Brothers

Here’s Wednesday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Neville Brothers NEW!

This one has been on my list for a quite a long time and it’s finally here. I got to see these guys just one time during one of my business trips to New Orleans. They were live at Tipitinas, a great venue, by the way. Today we have them as a band, some of them solo, and we also have The Meters. Art Neville was the founder of both The Neville Brothers and The Meters. They are truly a magical, musical family.

7:00 p.m. Badass Guitarists, Volume One: Various Artists

Here we have some of the handiwork of some of music’s greatest on guitar. You’ll hear Dickie Betts, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Page, Lowell George, Paul Barriere, Jimi Hendrix, Walter Becker, Mike Campbell, Joe Perry and more.

We’ll have Volume Two on Friday of this week, and we’re putting together Volume Three right now. So, if we’ve missed anyone, we’ll rectify that.

Once again, please give us a shot. We’re all about the music because this is a labor of love. We make no profit whatsoever. That is definitely not why we’re here.

Today It’s All About The Ladies, Plus McCartney’s CHOBA B CCCP is Our AOW, Sunday, July 18, 2021

Good Morning, Kids! It’s Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge and it’s a total mermaid kind of day starting mid-afternoon. Before that, though, we’ve got a great Album of The Week for you.

Ladies Day Out is up at 3:00 p.m.!

Here’s Sunday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: CHOBA B CCCP by Paul McCartney NEW!

The album title translates to Back in The U.S.S.R. and is the seventh studio album by Paul McCartney. It was released in October 1988 exclusively in Russia. It was released worldwide in 1991. The album is live in-studio covers of some of the great rock n’ roll hits that inspired so many artists of the sixties, including The Beatles, The Stones, and many others. This is a great album, proving that McCartney can rock with the best of them. The man’s career has spanned six decades now, and he’s still going. He’s what we call a living legend.

3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

The ladies take over for five uninterrupted hours of bliss at mid-afternoon. This extended playlist features Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Carla Thomas.

We’re at Midweek With Some New Creedence, Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live, and Volume Two of Our Summer of Love, June 23, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’re already at midweek and we’ve got some great music for you here today, including some live Creedence at The Fillmore!

We jump into the programming with CCR Live at The Fillmore!

Here’s your midweek line-up:

11:00 a.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, July 4, 1971 NEW!

Today we have the first live playlist from one of our absolute favorite bands here in The Mermaid Lounge, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Creedence pumped out some of the best rock n’ roll swamp music on the planet, sounding just like they were born on the bayou, even though they were four guys from Berkeley, California. This concert is another that was broadcast on KSAN.

3:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live From Ultrasonic Studios, New York, October 17, 1972

Bonnie Raitt gets together with Lowell George of Little Feat, her bassist, Freebo, and bluesman John Hammond, for a little party at Ultrasonic Studios curated and broadcast by influential rock radio station WLIR-FM on Long Island. A great version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is included.

7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Two: Various Artists

We skipped this volume yesterday because it was Tuesday Bluesday, but we have volume two here for you today, with music from The Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Manfred Mann, Jimi Hendrix, Bobbie Gentry, The Turtles, The Byrds, Stevie Wonder, The Rascals and more!

We’re kicking some ass today here in The Mermaid Lounge and would like you to tune us in. Join your friends online today from The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Spain, The Russian Federation, France, Germany (always), Italy and Portugal. All you need is a computer tab.

It’s Sunday Funday Here in The Mermaid Lounge With ‘Ladies Day Out’ and “Blues From Laurel Canyon” As Our Album of The Week, June 20, 2021

Good Morning, and Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. It’s time once again for our ‘Ladies Day Out’ extended playlist, and we’ve got a great new Album of The Week starting today.

Ladies Day Out begins at 3:00 p.m. and runs for five uninterrupted hours.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blues From Laurel Canyon by John Mayall NEW!

Released in November 1968 after John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers disbanded, this album is yet another piece of Laurel Canyon music history. John Mayall wrote all the songs and plays harmonica, organ and guitar on the album. He is joined by a young Mick Taylor (guitar), Colin Allen (drums), and Stephen Thompson (bass). Peter Green of the original Fleetwood Mac (a blues band at its birth) plays guitar on one of the songs as well. There’s nothing like some British blues to kick-start your day.

3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

The women of popular music still get the short end of the stick on the airwaves. Some of these radio stations think that Joan Jett and Blondie are the only women who ever made rock n’ roll. Pioneers like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, and others get absolutely no appreciable playtime that I can find anywhere, not even on the so-called “classic rock” channels.

We aim to change that here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We do not broadcast like traditional radio because we can’t afford to compete with those entities. We are an Internet radio station. But we have made a commitment to showcasing the women of rock n’ roll, soul, folk, blues, even cajun-zydeco (sorry, no rap here) in the hope that in some small way we can pay them respect. Our homage to the women who make music begins at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon.

Tune us in. It’s hot as the blazes out there where I am today. But it’s nice and cool here in The Mermaid Lounge. The only thing hot in here is the music. And it runs 24/7 free of charge to everyone.

We’ve Made It To Friday With Our Brand New TLA Playlist, and Etta James In the Spotlight Later, June 11, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s finally Friday! Of course, if you are a retail slave, you’ll know that work never ends. Because in the eyes of most people, their freedom has finally been returned in the name of capitalism. I, personally, equate the lifting of the blue laws here as slavery. Nevertheless, we have some excellent music for you today.

We put Etta james In The Spotlight later today.

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m. True Love Always: Various Artists NEW!

Earlier in the week, we offered up our Nothing But Heartbreak playlist, so it’s only fair that we create one for the true believers in true love. Today we have a few hours of some of the greatest love songs ever made in the annals rock n’ roll. Enjoy your delusional selves.

You’ll hear Maria Muldaur, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Tom Petty & The Heatbreakers, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye & Tammy Terrell, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Mudcrutch, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, Warren Zevon, The Beach Boys, Guy Clark, Tom Rush and more!

The set list will be posted under the Playlist tab before air time. Check it out.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James

We haven’t heard from the sublime Etta James for a while. As I was going down our playlists last night, it struck me that this would be a perfect day. So, here you have Etta James In the Spotlight, where she certainly deserves to be.

In between all of this, we’ve got a continual Open Stream of some of the best music on the planet from some of the most legendary artists on the planet. (Not to mention some folks who should have been legendary, but fell through the cracks somehow.) We’re free. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising and chatty DJ’s. Best of all, we don’t ask you for personal information. Visit us below.
