Good Morning, Bluesologists. Our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP is back, and it’s our major musical programming feature of the day. Get on it.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and B.B. King is just one of the blues greats you’ll hear today!

Here’s your programming:

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

It’s just over five hours of uninterrupted blues music from B. B. King (and his sidekick, Lucille), Delbert McClinton, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J.J.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry

This is the second airing of this week’s AOW, Bobbie Gentry’s ambitious concept album about life growing up in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. In truth, Bobbie Gentry didn’t want to sing. She wanted to write songs for other people and remain in the background. Her songwriting prowess is fully on show here, as is her sultry, bluesy voice.

We’ve got Chile, the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and many points beyond already tuned in this morning. Why not join them?

On Tuesday Bluesday, We’ve Got Delbert McClinton In the Spotlight, The Dirty Knobs’ AOW, and Tedeschi Trucks Live in Wisconsin Bringing Up The Rear, May 10, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great blues action for you today, as well as the second airing of The Dirty Knobs’ brand new album, External Combustion.

It’s Delbert McClinton & Tedeschi Trucks today!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Delbert McClinton

Delbert McClinton is an American blues rock and electric blues singer, songwriter, guitarist, harmonica player, and pianist. This guy has been doing it for decades. He has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, and has won four. If you don’t know who Delbert McClinton is, you can learn more about him right here. And then it would behoove you to tune this great playlist in.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: External Combustion by Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs

The second airing of a great album by Mike Campbell’s new band, post Heartbreakers. I confess listening to him makes me wish Mr. Petty was still on the planet and they were still making music together. But since that is not going to happen, we’ve got The Dirty Knobs.

7:00 p.m. Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Madison, WI, March 18, 2015 NEW!

Without a doubt, this is the finest big, bad, blues band on the planet. It is not even up for debate, people. They have always been outstanding on stage, and this outing is no exception.

Get your blues on right here today. Don’t even blink or think. Just tune in, turn on, drop out. You know you want to, so why not make this the day?

George’s twelfth and final studio album was brought to fruition lovingly by his son, Dhani, and Jeff Lynne, leader of Electric Light Orchestra and George’s mate in The Traveling Wilburys. It was finally released just about a year after his death. It’s a great listen, and some propose it’s his best album. Tune it in.

Another day in paradise, as they say. Listen, a lot of people are working from home these days. In between those obligatory phone calls, you could be listening to some of the greatest music on the planet. You know, like right here. Totally free 24/7, no commercials, and no strings. What else do you want?

We’ve Got Not Just One, But Two, New Tuesday Bluesday Features Today Plus Our Album of The Week, December 7, 2021

Happy Tuesday, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great new blues material for you today, and both features are brand new to The Mermaid Lounge!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys

We take a short break in the blues programming to feature a theoretical 19-song album that would have been simply called Smile had it not been abandoned by the Beach Boys. I know. It’s all very complicated. You can learn more about it if you look back on Sunday’s post! Or you can simply click on the sidebar Album of The Week image.

7:00 p.m. Rick Danko & Paul Butterfield Live From The Blue Note, Boulder, Colorado, December 13, 1979 NEW!

This is a great collaboration here between two late greats, Rick Danko of The Band and eminent bluesman Paul Butterfield. We have them ‘live’ together from The Blue Note here.

Every Tuesday is Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. As such, this is a great day for you to join listeners from around the world. I mean, we’re totally free. Doesn’t cost you a penny. No effort beyond pulling up a tab and tuning in. No commercials. And no bullshit.

Our second airing of what I consider to be one of Ronstadt’s most eclectic works, interpreting the songs of Bob Dylan (for the first time since early in her career), John Hiatt, Naomi Neville and others. The standout song? Undoubtedly, Ruler of My Heart. Brilliant.

Tune us in, people. We’re about to expand our general rotation again and you have no idea what you are missing! No other radio station rotates a 27,000-song playlist on its best day.
