Happy B-Day, Neil Young! Some Afternoon Open Stream, and Music About Luck, On Friday, November 13, 2020

Good Morning, Fellow Musicologists and Mixologists! It’s bleak, cold, rainy and dreary outside The Mermaid Lounge today and we’ve got about six inches of leaves on the ground out there. But inside? We’ve got great music.

Neil Young, musical legend, turns 75.

Here’s today’s Friday the 13th line-up!

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young

Happy Belated Birthday to Neil Young today, who turned 75 yesterday. He’s still out there, staying true to himself like all the greats do. In addition to his outstanding solo career, Neil Young has been part of Buffalo Springfield, The Stills-Young Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. On the road, his backing bands have been Crazy Horse, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. His discography is immense and his contribution immeasurable.

Afternoon Open Stream with Three-in-a-Rows

We’ve got an Open Stream afternoon with some Three-in-a-Row interludes for your listening pleasure. Keep your head low and stay out of trouble today.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck NEW!

You knew this had to happen today. It’s just too good an opportunity to remember some of the songs addressing the issue of luck. You would actually think there’d be more. Tough to find! This playist is about luck (title or lyrics) and taking chances. Enjoy.

By the way, the playlist for this is up on the blog. Just navigate yourselves to the Playlist tab and scroll to the bottom!

This morning, we welcome listeners from Portugal and Lithuania to our community. We’d like to welcome more from the U.S. But as with every other issue, they seem to be asleep at the switch. Or tab. Or keyboard. Whatever your perspective.

Programming for Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your planned programming for today! It’s David Crosby’s birthday, so today’s special is In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. That will air at 4:00 p.m. EST.

In between, we’ve got about 8,000 songs in the rotation now, adding more daily. Today, we’ll take the station down early again and add more!

Janis 1969

10:00 a.m.   Janis Joplin Live at Winterland 1968

Warming up with Janis as we prepare for our Woodstock weekend!

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: Fascism In the Age of Trump

Like it or not, the only bipartisan program our legislators have is screwing us over. Trump is no savior. He’s no “outsider.” He’s no exception. In fact, he’s exactly the kind of garbage that a dying empire has left to offer.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young

Happy Birthday, David Crosby!

7:00 p.m.    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the Enslavement of the American Worker

It’s all part of the grand scheme.
