The British Are Coming! and Kate Taylor’s First New Album Since ‘Sister Kate’ (50 Years) is Our Album of The Week, Sunday, August 15, 2021

It’s yet another Sunday Funday here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we give your our multi-artist longplayer called ‘The British Are Coming’ and Kate Taylor is back with our Album of The Week.

Here’s your Sunday Funday musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Why Wait! by Kate Taylor NEW!

Kate Taylor is back with her first new album, 50 years after Sister Kate was released, and it was worth the wait! Produced by Peter Asher (formerly of Peter & Gordon), legendary manager of Linda Ronstadt, and friend of The Beatles, it’s a great collection of songs by a woman who is part of a very musical family. Sister Kate does her family name proud.

3:00 p.m. The British Are Coming!, Various Artists

We’re back with more than five uninterrupted hours of songs from across the pond. You’ll hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Led Zeppelin, Traffic, Derek & The Dominos, The Pretenders, Them, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Cream, Faces, The Dave Clark Five, The Searchers, Lulu, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Moody Blues, The Who, The Animals, The Hollies, Badfinger, The Electric Light Orchestra, and many more!

It is, of course, a great day to tune us in. It is, after all, a day of rest and why spend it with radio that continually interrupts you with commercial content and loud-mouthed DJ’s when you actually have a choice. As an added bonus, we’re totally free 24/7 and are non-intrusive (we never ask for your personal information).

Derek & The Dominos Live, NOT The Album of The Week, and What’s In A Name? Friday, June 4, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday once again and we are giving you something old and something new, and commemmorating a great album release today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, New York City, October 23, 1970 NEW!

On October 23 and 24, 1970, Derek & The Dominos played two shows at the famed Fillmore East. We have the first night’s performance here today.

3:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band NEW!

This is not a regular feature of our station, but we do it once in a while when the occasion calls for it. Today, we are running this in commemoration of the release of one of the most incredible albums of all time, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was released fifty-four years ago on June 2, 1967.

This was The Beatles’ eighth studio album, and was the first where the track listing was the same on both the US and UK version. It was the first album to have all of the lyrics printed on the cover. Musicologists recognize this album as the first concept album ever. The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK charts, and 15 on top of the US charts.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name, Various Artists

One of our most popular playlists is up later this evening, What’s In A Name. Songs with names in either the title or the lyrics. You’ll hear The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, The Velvet Underground, The Band, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and many more.

We have a great line up today sprinkled throughout all of our great Open Stream, and you should take advantage of that if you haven’t spent time listening in yet. We are totally free and run 24/7.

7:00 p.m. Sounds of The Supergroups: Various Artists

This playlist features Derek & The Dominos; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; The Traveling Wilburys; Cream; The Highwaymen; Blind Faith; and Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris (yes, a bona fide supergroup even though the male dominated rock world never even mentions them in association with the word).

Derek & The Dominos Live, Emmylou Harris Rarities, and A Repeat of Yesterday’s Live Wildflowers, Monday, October 19, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! Here’s today’s funky mix of music for your listening pleasure, including a repeat performance of yesterday’s unveiling of the live Wildflowers songs.

Eric Clapton during the Derek & The Dominos phase.

Here’s your week-opening line-up:

12:00 p.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, October 23 & 24, 1970

Derek & The Dominos, for those not in the know, is a British blues-rock band populated by Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle & Jim Gordon. Their live recordings come from two nights at The Fillmore East. If we were using the term ‘supergroup’ back in the day, this just might be one.

5:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems

Here are some tunes you may have forgotten that Emmylou Harris did, some you didn’t know she did, and others she has done with her contemporaries. In short, it’s a great little playlist.

8:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty REPLAY!

A replay of yesterday’s live versions of Wildflowers songs as chosen by Tom Petty’s family and bandmates. These may not be as much a revelation as the upcoming selections will be, but they certainly reflect a band at the top of its game and having a great fucking time on stage. And isn’t that why we love live music?

People, you need to get with the program. Seriously. We’re not going away, so you might as well just give in and pull up a tab. Because, hell, it doesn’t cost you anything and we run all day and night. We are your escape in the middle of this pestilence. Get your musical shit together.

It’s Clapton at Madison Square Garden, Paul Simon in The Spotlight, and Lucinda Williams’ New Album on Thursday, July 2, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.

Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.

7:00 p.m.    Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017  NEW!

Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.

Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.

The Big “O” in the Spotlight, New “Live” Music From Derek & The Dominos, and The All-Girl Revue is Back on Monday, March 30, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve dug deep on the live music today to bring you Derek & The Dominos! Sit back and enjoy the music.

Derek & The Dominos

Here’s today’s line-up:

1:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding (aka, The Big O)

Gone before his time at the age of 26 in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of five teen-aged members of the BarKays, who had been recording and touring with him. The former well-driller from Macon, Georgia, is considered one of the greatest singers of all time, and certainly a pioneer in soul music and R & B.

4:00 p.m.   Derek & The Dominos Live!   NEW!

Derek & The Dominos was formed in the spring of 1970 by singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, and drummer Jim Gordon. They had all played together previously in Delaney & Bonnie and Friends (who you will hear on our station in the very near future). Also contributing to their musical efforts were Dave Mason, George Harrison (the band was formed while he was making All Things Must Pass), and legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman.

7:00 p.m.   The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1

Sit back and enjoy Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carlene Carter, Irma Thomas, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Lulu, and Patti Smith…just for starters.

It doesn’t get any better than this, Ungovernables! We’re totally OUTSIDE the system.
