It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Heartbreakers, and Ronstadt On Tap, July 19, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some good stuff on tap for this Tuesday Bluesday, including a visit from one of our House Bands later on. Read on for all the details!

It’s Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

10:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, October 4, 1984

We’ve got SRV in the house to kick off the Tuesday Bluesday activities. This time around we’ve got a live performance from Carnegie Hall with his band, Double Trouble.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hasten Down The Wind by Linda Ronstadt

The only break in the blues programming is for this great album. Although, technically, Ronstadt pays homage to the blues genre with her amazing version of the great Tracy Nelson’s Down So Low. Spectacular.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

It’s no secret that Tom Petty had a vision of he and his bandmates growing old together sitting around on chairs singing the blues. He said that often, and his love for the blues showed on many albums and in many live performances where he would spontaneously add blues songs to a set list. The album Mojo was a tribute to the blues. And finally, if you listen to Tom Petty Radio, you’ll know he was also a DJ on the Buried Treasure show which featured the blues quite frequently. But the ultimate proof of The Heartbreakers’ passion for the blues is to listen to them sing the blues. So, here you have it.

Tuesday is always a good day to tune us in. Today, we’ve already got folks on from Romania, Russian Federation, Australia, the UK, France, Spain, Greece, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, and points beyond. All you need is a computer tab. We do the rest. Your money is no good here.

It’s Mid-Week and We’ve Got New Little Feat and Some ‘Live’ Joni Mitchell, Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s mid-week here in The Mermaid Lounge. We have some fine new Little Feat music vintage 1977 when they appeared with the Tower of Power Horns.

The great Joni Mitchell.

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. Little Feat with The Tower of Power Horns Live at Lisner Auditorium, Washington, D.C., August 18, 1977 NEW!

Always a favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge, this time we have a classic live performance of Little Feat playing along with the great Tower of Power horns. New to #BecomeUngovernable Radio making its debut today.

6:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, February 3, 1972

This evening we have another great performance by Joni Mitchell live from Carnegie Hall. Joni is what we concert-goers called a double-edged sword during her touring days: Brilliant musician with a short temper on stage, very much like her male counterpart, Van Morrison. She has tempered with age.

We’re light on programming today and heavy on the Open Stream. After all, The Music Mermaid has to earn her keep here. We think she does a commendable job.

The Dynamic Duo is in The Lounge, Hendrix Live in ’68, and Joni Mitchell Live in ’72, On Friday, October 16, 2020

It’s a banner day here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. Yesterday, I got my text that the Tom Petty package has indeed shipped. We will have some fun the rest of Tom Petty Month, but in the meantime…

Petty & Campbell: The Dynamic Duo on guitars and in the studio. Flat out.

Here’s Friday’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo

While it’s true that Petty often brought the songs to the band, it is also true that Mike Cambell often brought a great riff to Mr. Petty. This playlist highlights their songwriting partnership.

3:00 p.m. Jimi Hendrix Live at The Cafe Au-Go-Go, New York City, March 17, 1968 NEW!

Hendrix live. Tough stuff to find, but fun to go hunting for. And I am always on the hunt, so stay tuned.

7:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, February 23, 1972

I saw Joni Mitchell live on her Court & Spark tour with Tom Scott & The LA Express. She was brilliant, and she was often not a pleasant soul on stage. Be careful not to clap at the wrong time. One of the most revered singer-songwriters of all time, and rightfully so.

It’s a fine morning. Why not tune us in? I mean, there’s absofuckinglutely no reason not to: We’re free. No credit card or personal information required. We run 24/7 (the majority of our hours are open stream). Our DJ doesn’t have diahrrhea of the mouth. No advertising. No politicians. Ever. Just music.
