We Start a New Month With the ‘Color My World’ EP, the Final Airing of “Cloud Nine,” and LIVE DEAD! Later, Saturday, October 1, 2022

Welcome to a brand new month as we move into the fall-winter spectrum. We’re happy to be here with the leaves changing and little bite in the air. We’ll counter all that with some hot music. We’ve got some new additions to our routine coming, and maybe a couple of changes on deck as well. Stay tuned.

‘Color My World’ is one of those “off the bench” EP’s. We call on it to break the pattern. We’ve got it for you today.

Here’s your musical line-up for October 1:

10:00 a.m. Color My World: Various Artists

Today we start the program with nearly five hours of songs about all of the color spectrum in the title, lyrics or both. We call our EP’s ‘Open Stream With a Theme’ for a reason. This one debuted on July 30 of this year, and you will hear from Linda Ronstadt, Valerie Carter, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys, Jonathan Edwards, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, John Hiatt, Joni Mitchell, Badfinger, Donovan, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder, Elton John, Procol Harum, Electric Light Orchestra, Amy Winehouse, The Who, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Sam & Dave, Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Booker T. & The MGs, Marvin Gaye, Lucinda Williams, John Cougar Mellencamp and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations FINAL AIRING!

This will be the swan song for Cloud Nine, where the Temptations broke the boundaries by introducing us to ‘psychedelic soul’ sound. We will continue on with our ‘psychedelic’ album presentation tomorrow with a brand new selection. Get in on this one while you can.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Saenger Center, New Orleans, LA, October 18, 1980

We haven’t aired this one since the summer of 2020, so it’s like a brand new airing. Great music from one of my favorite American music towns.

Before, in between and after it’s that great wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid at the controls. As you know, she has impeccable taste in music. Get on board today.

We Keep It Simple Today With Our ‘Color My World’ EP and Elton John In the Spotlight Later, Monday, August 22, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s Monday and I have a rare call to retail duty today, so The Music Mermaid is in charge. She’s keeping it simple on this fine day with our newest EP and a long-awaited Spotlight feature.

Today we’ve got our newest EP, Color My World, starting at 11:00 a.m. EST

Here’s your Monday, Monday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Color My World: Various Artists

This EP made its debut last month right around this time, so it’s back again. A multi-artist EP with references to colors in the title, lyrics or both will bring songs from Valerie Carter, Linda Ronstadt, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys, Jonathan Edwards, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, John Hiatt, Joni Mitchell, Badfinger, Donovan, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder, Elton John, Procol Harum, Electric Light Orchestra, Amy Winehouse, The Who, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Sam & Dave, Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, Jimi Hendrix, Booker T & The MGs, Marvin Gaye, Lucinda Williams, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Cougar Mellencamp and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Elton John NEW!

This one has been a long time coming, and I finally broke through last night and figured out why it has taken me so long: I much prefer early Elton John to the music he has made later in his career. And so it is that you will hear little of his newer music here. But early Elton John? Spectacular stuff, and The Music Mermaid and I feel like we’ve got the best of all that here in this playlist.

Speaking of The Music Mermaid, she give us all that great wide Open Stream before, in between and looooong after the programming ends. We run 24/7 totally free of charge for your musical listening pleasure. And we do not run advertising. No sir.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga, NY, June 27, 1985

This is another repeat performance, but hasn’t been cued up since 2020. It’ll be just like new. This is one of those great music venues that I spent much of my youthful time visiting. And this is a great Dead soundboard. Don’t miss it.

Saturday is always a good day to take us for a spin. While some of us are still toiling away with the general public, you can be here listening to great music. All day. All you need is a computer and a new tab. No credit card required and nothing to fill out. Your money’s no good here. Here we have voluntary memberships only. What’s not to love?
