We Begin Delving Into the World of Psychedelic Music With Our AOW, and Then The Women of Music Take Over, Sunday, September 11, 2022

Good Morning, Psychedelic Music Lovers! We’ll delve into the world of psychedelic music over the next few weeks with our Album of The Week. We start it off with Country Joe & The Fish!

Today we take a mind-expanding trip into psychedelic music!

Here’s your musical lineup for Sunday:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Electric Music For the Mind and Body by Country Joe & The Fish NEW!

Country Joe & The Fish’s debut album was released in May of 1967, and was one of the very first psychedelic music albums to come out of San Francisco. We include the write up from DiscoverMusic below:

An early 1967 release, Country Joe And The Fish’s debut album opened up all kinds of possibilities: heady jams, poetic ballads, free-form ragas and even a taste of political satire. Because Joe McDonald was a songwriter first, the whole album is wrapped in a tuneful package. The closing “Grace” is a romantic epic in honour of Grace Slick (Janis Joplin would get similar treatment on the follow-up album).

Songs from the LP made it to the airwaves of progressive radio stations like KSAN and KMPX in San Francisco, and I distinctly remember listening to Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine on Boston’s WMEX back in the day. I managed to catch Country Joe live at Boston Garden as well.

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

Starting mid-afternoon, the ladies of music take over the lounge and what a line-up it is with Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Chrissie Hynde, Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Nicolette Larson, Sheryl Crow, Valerie Carter and more!

It’ a keep-it-simple Sunday here in The Lounge. The Music Mermaid is fully in charge today pushing out the great mind-expanding sounds for our friends from Germany, the UK, Chile, Finland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Italy, Ireland, Japan, the Faroe Islands, Texas, Kansas and New York this morning. Why not join us?

It’s Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge and We’ve Got “Baez Sings Dylan” as The AOW, and Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, July 10, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge on this fine, sunny Sunday and we’ve got a great AOW selection as well as our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP to get you through the day.

We give you ‘Baez Sings Dylan’ as our Album of The Week starting this evening

Here’s your Sunday Funday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

The women of music take front and center today as we here in The Lounge take to the streets for Roe v. Wade. You’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Carly Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Chrissie Hynde, Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Roseanne Cash, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Nicolette Larson, Valerie Carter, Sheryl Crow and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Baez Sings Dylan NEW!

There is no question that we have two luminaries of the folk movement on this album as Joan Baez pays tribute to Bob Dylan. They first met in 1961 and collaborated on music for several years before becoming intimately involved. Even after the relationship ended they continued to make music together and have remained friends over the years. Dylan continues to tour, while Joan Baez has formally retired from the road. We will soon have Spotlight features for both.

It’s a day of rest, and there’s no better way to kick back than with some really great music. That’s what you get here. No commercial interruptions. No overly talkative DJs. Nope. Not here. And guess what else is no good here: Your money. Because we are 100% no-strings-attached free 24/7. We don’t stop when the programming stops. We have continuous wide Open Stream with more than 27,000 songs in our collection. We’re all about the music.

Happy Sunday From the Mermaid Lounge Where the Women of Music Own Today’s Programming, June 12, 2022

Good Morning, Folks! It’s Sunday and that’s an official day of rest. If you’re a believer in The Big Guy in the Sky, remember that even he (or she) took today off. The women of music will not be taking today off here. They are fully in charge.

Ladies Day Out starts at 3:00 p.m. EST!

Here’s your Sunday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: American Tune by Eva Cassidy NEW!

Eva Cassidy was a woman of extraordinary talent with a beautiful voice, and she died far too soon for most people to even know about her. ‘we here learned about her posthumously from a friend. This album is a really interesting album for its time. This kind of album is commonplace now, but it wasn’t so common at the time of its release. It’s a collection of her rehearsal tapes and some live performances that was released seven years after her death. But it’s not just a mere collection of songs thrown together. Give it a listen.

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

The women of music are in control starting at 3:00 p.m. and continuing for several hours as we listen to Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Chrissie Hynde, Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Nicolette Larson, Valerie Carter, Sheryl Crowe, and more!

Before, in between, and after you’ll hear our great wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid fully in control. We’re open all day and night, we’re totally free, and we don’t ask for your personal information. We don’t need it because we don’t try to sell you a damned thing.

There was actually never a second volume, adding to the offbeat mystique of this great supergroup. Another great selection of songs from the guys who also actually never traveled together (as in performing on the road). They were just friends having a great time playing music together, and it showed.

Tune us in. We’ve got Bolivia and Chile both joining the fun this morning. You could be having some fun here too. Because it is absolutely effortless and free. Just push that button below.

Saturday In The Mermaid Lounge Brings The ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, the Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later, February 19, 2022

Good Morning, Weekenders! Another Saturday has rolled around here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re just chock full of good musical programming for you today! Read on!

The women of music are large and in charge today here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

Often overlooked, but never here in The Lounge. When I used to listen to regular rock music stations, the women of music were almost an afterthought. You’d have thought that Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks were the only female singers on the damned planet. In fact, women have delivered an awful lot of great music over the years and deserve their place in the spotlight. Today you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders), Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Susan Tedeschi, Phoebe Snow, Nicolette Larson, Valerie Carter, Eva Cassidy, Lucinda Williams, Wendy Waldman, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, and many more! (There’s even some Stevie Nicks and Joan Jett.)

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Laid Back by Gregg Allman FINAL AIRING!

Today is the swan song for Gregg Allman’s Laid Back, his very first solo album. Tomorrow when you wake up, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Miami Arena, Miami, FL, October 26, 1989 NEW!

Another new soundboard recording from the ultimate road and jam band, this time with their infamous Wall of Sound. Get on it, people. It’s a Saturday night staple here in The Mermaid Lounge especially for Deadheads.

Before, after and in-between all this great program we have our wide Open Stream, courtesy of The Music Mermaid who, as you know, has impeccable taste. That’s why she’s here.

Love Is In The Air With Our TLA and Nothing But Heartbreak Playlists, and the Love Songs of Bob Dylan, Monday, February 14, 2022

Good Morning to the true lovers and brokenhearted everywhere (yeah, I’m still in that latter category carrying the damned torch). We’ve got some great music lined up for you today, including a new playlist of Bob Dylan love songs. Read on for details!

We’ve got a brand new Dylan playlist with a twist!

Here’s your Valentine’s Day line-up:

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

You know what the Buddhists say. Nothing is ever forever. But that doesn’t stop us hopeless romantics from thinking it is. Am I right? I sure am. This is the number one topic of the music world and you’ll hear from The Hollies, Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Jackson Browne, George Harrison, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Boz Scaggs, Delaney & Bonnie, The Band, Buffalo Springfield, Van Morrison, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder, Basia, The Mamas & The Papas, Bonnie Raitt, Guy Clark and more!

3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan: The Love Songs NEW!

Bob Dylan is one of the most talented and prolific songwriters of all time, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature for good reason. But Bob Dylan was so much more than protest music, even though he is also the master of that genre. He also wrote some of the greatest love songs on the planet, in our opinion. We’ve got them for you today on Valentine’s Day. But we’ve also got some surprise guests as well! You’ll have to listen to the playlist. We’re not talking…

7:00 p.m. Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists

And now, the flip side of that great true love feeling. My specialty: The broken heart. Comes in right behind TLA in the music subject category. You’ll hear the heartbreaking stories of Elvis Presley, Dan Fogelberg, Aretha Franklin, The Band, Cat Stevens, The Bee Gees, Lucinda Williams, Them, The Pretenders, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, The Beatles, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Tom Rush, the J. Geils Band, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Mudcrutch, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and more!

Step into The Mermaid Lounge (figuratively speaking) and swoon with us today. You know you want to, so why not make this the day. You have absolutely nothing to lose because we don’t require our listeners to pay for their music. We run 24/7 totally free of charge and we don’t run advertising. We are completely self-funded. Jump in, kids!

It’s Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge And We Turn It Over to The Ladies of Music, and Give You a Great New Album of The Week, August 22, 2021

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. This is five hours of uninterrupted music from The Mermaid Lounge, where women are decidedly not second class citizens.

It’s a great day here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio and we do hope you’ll join our friends from around the world and tune us in. 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.
