Chase Your Monday Blues With Music From Laurel Canyon and Creedence Clearwater Revival In the Spotlight, November 29, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! The problem with Mondays is that the just keep coming back. But nevertheless, we’ve go you covered musically. It’ll make you smile.

We’ve got all the musical legends from Laurel Canyon up to start your day!

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

This great EP was expanded because Laurel Canyon was a musical hub of creativity for two generations of musicians, the sixties and early seventies. You’ll hear The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, The Monkees, The Mamas & The Papas, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, CSNY, Neil Young, Stephen Stills & Manassas, John Mayall, The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Canned Heat, The Eagles, J.D.Souther, Carole King, James Taylor, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

Creedence is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge. We think they’re one of the best rock n’ roll bands to strap on some gee-tars. When they first came out, we were convinced they were straight out of a Louisiana bayou. In fact, they are four guys from Berkeley. And they are In the Spotlight here tonight.

Tune us in. We’ve already got Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Russian Federation, Sweden, France, Australia, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, and Mexico on this morning. Some of these guys have been on all night! Switzerland has been tuned in for two days! Either the guy is dead or he really likes the music.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Elton John by Elton John

This is our final airing of an album that is arguably Elton John’s best work all these years later. When you wake up tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new selection waiting for you!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Swing Auditorium, San Bernardino, CA, February 26, 1977

A rare repeat performance this weekend, but it’ll seem new no matter when it’s aired! We all know that the world’s ultimate jam band never sounds the same. This will be no exception. Got lots of new stuff coming. Will return to new performances next weekend.

Great day, as always, to tune us in. Before, in between, and after, we give you our 27,000+ song library totally uninterrupted in no particular order. It’s at the total whim of The Music Mermaid, and trust me when I tell you she has impeccable taste. What are you waiting for?

Mid-Week Brings Our Rock, Blues & Ballads Playlist, Creedence Clearwater Revival In The Spotlight, and a Tribute To The Great Charlie Watts, Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great line-up today as we play tribute to Charlie Watts, a Rolling Stone from beginning to end, and celebrate his life and music.

In tribute to the steady beat of Charlie Watts, we put The Stones In the Spotlight tonight.

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. Rock, Blues & Ballads, Volume One: Various Artists

This one gives us a little bit of everything. It’s just a great collection of individual songs by some of the best singers, songwriters and musical artists on the planet. You’ll hear from Warren Zevon, J.J. Cale, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Steve Winwood, Long John Baldry, Maria Muldaur, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Eric Clapton and many more!

3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

Four guys from Berkeley, California, made some of the best damned rock n’ roll and swamp music on the planet. Someone once said they were overrated. I told that guy to shut the fuck up.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Rolling Stones

Charlie Watts, the steady heart beat of the Stones, passed into that great musical heaven in the sky yesterday. He was a constant from beginning to end with the Stones; all he ever wanted to do was play the drums and he did it with style. Tonight we put The Rolling Stones In the Spotlight.

Why you should tune us in (besides the greatest music on the planet): We’re totally free, we do not accept commercials, therefore your music is uninterrupted all day and all night, we do not ask for personal information, and we do not track you. Neither do we purchase music from either Amazon or Apple. Get it?

Warding Off the Bad JuJu With the Music of Laurel Canyon and Our House Playlist, Friday, August 13, 2021

Are you a believer in Friday the 13th’s bad juju? Well, we’ll help you kick out those vibes with some great music today.

We kick off the day with those Echoes from Laurel Canyon of the 60’s and 70’s

Here’s your Friday the 13th line-up:

11:00 a.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists

This playlist is about to go through a major update and become a long-player, but today we give you just over three hours of great music that came from friends who hung out in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood together and developed some of the best music on the planet. You will hear The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, John Mayall, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, The Beach Boys, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Monkees, Joni Mitchell, CSNY, Jackson Browne and more!

7:00 p.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

Tonight we have the music that inspired #BecomeUngovernable Radio (call it sixties protest music, if you will). You’ll hear T. Rex, Barry McGuire, Peter Tosh, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Animals, Country Joe & The Fish, Pink Floyd, Buffalo Springfield, The Band, The Beatles, Joan Baez, and more.

As always, it’s a great day to tune in a radio station that focuses on nothing but music 24/7 with no commercial interruption and at no cost to you, the listener. If there’s another source that offers the same, please, tell us about it.

Fillmore Forward With The Allman Brothers Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and LIVE DEAD Later, Saturday, July 3, 2021

Onward Fillmorians! We move forward with three great bands today from both Fillmore venues. Our only exception to the Fillmore rule will be the final airing of Kate Taylor’s Album of The Week.

It was tough accessing some of the actual posters for these dates, but we did our best to choose alternatives wisely!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at The Fillmore East, March 12-13, 1971 NEW!

We have all of these legendary recordings in our vast collection. These are the best culled over the 1971 Allman Brothers appearances.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sister Kate by Kate Taylor FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of Kate Taylor’s great album from 1971. We eagerly await her brand new August 2021 release. Tomorrow, however, when you roll out of bed we have a masterful selection for you.

6:00 p.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore West, July 4 1971

CCR delivers their special brand of swamp music in what is the final day of The Fillmore West’s existence under Bill Graham. It’s hard to believe these guys were born and raised in Berkeley, California. Their ‘born on the bayou’ sound was truly amazing. One of the best bands to ever exist.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Fillmore West, July 2, 1971

We resurrect this great show for our Fillmore extravaganza. What would this celebration be without the ultimate jam band’s inclusion?

This is a great warm-up for tomorrow’s grand finale! We hope you’ll tune our special July 4 celebration. Forget all the flag-waving and fireworks bullshit. This is where the party’s at.

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.

Taj Mahal In the Spotlight, Our New ‘Travelin’ Fever’ Playlist Later, and Our Album of The Week In Between, Thursday, May 20, 2021

Good Morning, Music Fans! Here we are on Thursday and our return to retail hell is imminent. But fear not, we leave you with some excellent programming today including a brand new multi-artist playlist later on.

Taj Mahal 1968. He is In The Spotlight today!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal, who was born Henry St. Clair Fredericks in Harlem, New York, is an American blues musician and multi-instrumentalist, who plays guitar, piano, banjo, harmonica, and many other instruments. He is an innovator who refuses to be “defined” by any one form and often incorporates elements of world music into his works. You get to hear him here today from The Mermaid Lounge.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Willy & The Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival

We are winding down on this week’s album selection. Our last airing will be on Saturday, so this might be a good day to tune this one in! On Sunday, when you roll out of bed, there’ll be a new selection.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Travelin’ Fever, Various Artists NEW!

The road is a popular topic among musicians, and we’ve got a brand new playlist debuting here today on just that subject. You’ll hear The Doors, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, The Byrds, Emmylou Harris, The Steve Miller Band, Linda Ronstadt, Arlo Guthrie, The Allman Brothers Band, Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. A once-famous person said that. I know. It’s a weekday. That may not be possible. But it’s the thought that counts. Nevertheless, if you can, you should.

We Debut “Willy & The Poor Boys” as Our Album of The Week Before Turning It Over To The Women of Music, Sunday, May 16, 2021

Sunday, as you know, is our long-playlist day and it’s the ladies’ turn today. But before that, we debut Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Willy & The Poor Boys as our Album of The Week.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Willy & The Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival NEW!

The year 1969 was certainly a prolific one for Creedence. Willy & The Poor Boys was the third and final album (and their fourth overall) released that year, coming on the heels of Green River, another fine album. (Cosmo’s Factory was the other release.)

Today we give you the 40th anniversary edition of the album because it has a couple of live versions thrown in along with the great Down On The Corner jam with the incomparable Booker T & The MGs, who also appear throughout the album.

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

After CCR, we turn it over to the women of rock, who still get the short end of the stick to this day. After her many years of contribution to music, Carole King just this year made it into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, as we induct rappers into a HOF that is supposed to be about rock n’ roll, not rap. Pisses me off. Aside from Carole King, you’ll hear Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Nicolette Larson, Maria Muldaur, Wendy Waldman, Eva Cassidy, Valerie Carter, and many, many more. If you’re a misogynist, this is definitely not your venue. We are honoring our commitment to highlighting the ladies.

A great day indeed to click on the link below and kick back. It’s Sunday, a day of rest, and we’ve got some great music here for you today.

Today We Have New ‘Live’ Neil Young, Jakob Dylan In the Spotlight, and Drivin’ Songs, Monday, April 12, 2021

Good Morning, today we have some brand new ‘live’ Neil Young for you to start off the week. We’re sure you’ll like this performance with The International Harvesters.

Neil Young practicing with The International Harvesters in the Harvest Barn.

Here’s Monday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Neil Young & The International Harvesters Live at Austin City Limits, September 25, 1984 NEW!

Neil Young has been around the horn and he’s played with many great bands, Crazy Horse, Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, but this is one we dug up out of the archives. Cannot even remember where I found this, but we’re sure you’ll like his performance with The International Harvesters.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

This playlist is actually Jakob Dylan with and without The Wallflowers, to be precise. But it’s good to know that they have just announced a new album together, the first in nine years. Bob’s boy, as you might guess, is no slouch.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream! Drivin’ Songs: Various Artists

This is another of our various artist playlists we haven’t aired for a while. Tune in for The Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Golden Earring, Linda Ronstadt, Mudcrutch, Rare Earth, Bruce Springsteen, The Moody Blues, Deep Purple, The Beatles, and more! It’s a great way to close out the day’s programming.
