It’s Tuesday Bluesday with Eric Clapton & Friends, Stevie Ray Vaughn “Live” and Our Album of The Week, September 28, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We have a great blues line-up today sandwiched around our latest Album of The Week.

Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Joe Cocker on stage in 1983

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, & Joe Cocker, Live at Royal Albert Hall, UK, September 20, 1983

Back in 1983, a bunch of musicians got together to play a benefit concert at Royal Albert Hall to raise money for multiple sclerosis. The event was organized by Ronnie Lane of the band Faces, who was a victim of the disease himself. The result was a great set of 18 songs of straight-up blues and blues-rock numbers. Even better, Clapton, Page and Beck were all once lead guitarists for The Yardbirds, but this was the first time they’d ever been on stage together. Many other great musicians were also involved in this benefit. You can read more about it here.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume One

Back for the second airing of this great album from the world’s premier supergroup. You can learn how the Wilburys came to be right here.

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Live at The Bluebird Lounge, Ft. Worth, TX, September 30, 1979

There’s not much more you can say about Stevie Ray Vaughan that hasn’t already been said. He was on the road continually during 1978 and 1979, and one stop was The Bluebird Lounge. It is believed that the owner of the place, Robert “Bluebird” Ealey was sitting in on guitar and vocals.

Hell, it’s Tuesday Bluesday here in the lounge. Before you know it, we’ll be coming up on Blues Week here (sometime during the winter when we need it most). We’re out there sourcing some new stuff now. This is a great time to acclimate yourself to our station.

Monday Rears Its Ugly Head Again, But We’ve Got Your Musical Back Here In The Mermaid Lounge, August 30, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! I have never liked Mondays. When I worked in corporate America, we used to call it Moan-Day. Now I have Monday’s off from retail hell, which makes it easier for me to acclimate when I get back there. Today, we’ve got great music for you to start your work week. I hope this helps.

Today, we’ve got George Harrison and Eric Clapton live in Nagoya, Japan

Here’s your musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The J. Geils Band

Here in Boston, we have two formidable bands in rock music history: The J. Geils Band and Aerosmith. I have always preferred The J. Geils Band myself, perhaps because their roots are more seated in R & B, but also because they were more versatile. (Also because Steven Tyler is a horse’s ass, but that’s another story.) Today we put J. Geils In the Spotlight.

3:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Theatre, London, UK, August 4, 1977

Another Mermaid Lounge favorite here, Little Feat. This was one sweet band, and their songs were the favorites of many a performer, including Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, Bill Payne, the piano player for Little Feat was also Bonnie’s piano player on many tours. It was also rumored that Lowell George was madly in love with Linda Ronstadt. But I digress because I love musical trivia. At any rate, I think of all the bands who lived beyond their leaders’ death, Little Feat was the most formidable. But still, the Lowell George version of Little Feat could not be touched.

7:00 p.m. George Harrison with Eric Clapton & His Band Live at the International Exhibition Centre, Nagoya, Japan, December 5, 1991

Two great friends perform live together. As it turns out, the road-resistant George Harrison only played two live stints during his solo career. This turned out to be his second, and final, live performance.

Give us a shot, folks. We’re totally free. Personally, I hate it when I have to fill out a bunch of information before I can access something on the web. That’s not us. You don’t need to give us anything, frankly. All you need to do is pull up a tab and click the link below.

Tuesday Bluesday Brings You Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Eric Clapton & B.B. King, and Our AOW, August 3, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It is, once again, Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we have some excellent programming for you, including music from the original Fleetwood Mac.

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac is not today’s Fleetwood Mac. It was a blues band.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans, January 31-February 1, 1970

Indeed, the rumors are true: The original Fleetwood Mac wasn’t a pop-rock band. That happened with the departure of Peter Green and the addition of Buckingham/Nicks. The original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, led by Peter Green. We have the original band live from The Warehouse in New Orleans, recorded over a two-day period.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne

The second airing of this week’s Album of The Week, which just happens to be a brand new album by singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. He has remained true to himself over five decades in the music business. His message remains the same, and he delivers it with the same passion as he always has, but this time with the perspective that time is running out. That’s why we love him here.

7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton & B.B. King: Riding With The King

Two blues masters here, and the results are totally pleasing to the ears. This is actually what we should call ‘Not Our Album of The Week’ as it was their first collaboration, released in 2000. It won the Grammy for the Best Traditional Blues Album, reached number one on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums, and was certified multi-platinum in the U.S.

As always, we’ll close by telling you it’s an excellent day to give us a listen here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We are totally ungovernable and outside the system. We cost you nothing. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising. And we do not buy any of our music from either Amazon or Apple. Believe it or not, there are other places to buy music.

We’ve Got Something Special Lined Up on Tuesday Bluesday, Plus Our Album of The Week Later, July 13, 2021

We’ve got great blues-rock with the Crossroads Guitar Festival selections today!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers

Today is the second airing of the great, new Wallflowers release, Exit Wounds. This is the first Wallflowers album in ten years, and it’s not to be missed. Songwriting is in Jakob Dylan’s blood for sure.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to tune us in (at least that’s what I’ve been told by our listeners). Today will be no exception! We run 24/7 absolutely free and without commercial interruption.

We’ve Got Lots of Open Stream Today Punctuated by Two Guitar Gods and The Ladies of Rock Later, Friday, July 9, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’re giving you lots of open stream today as we prepare for our usual hectic Saturday programming.

Later on today, The Ladies are in charge.

Here’s your line-up:

12:00 p.m. Duane Allman & Eric Clapton: Studio Jams 1-6

Here we have just over an hour of music from two of the best in the business, just hanging out in the studio together blowing the doors off the place. Enjoy.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Volume 3: Various Artists

We haven’t heard one of these for a while. The time is absolutely right. In this volume, you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Phoebe Snow, Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Carole King, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Melissa Etheridge, Valerie Carter, Wendy Waldman, Susan Tedeschi, Aretha Franklin, Melanie, and many more!

In between all this stuff, you’ll hear wide Open Stream today. The Music Mermaid can pick up anything she likes when we’re on that setting. She may even be inclined to pick up a playlist or two. You never know, and I am out of control when she’s in charge. That’s how it works here.

On Friday, Night Time is The Right Time, and We Offer Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, June 25, 2021

To say that many songs have been written about the night would be an understatement, and we prove it with our latest long-player today. It kind of…kept going…and going. Until I got tired, that is.

Tonight we have Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton live from Madison Square Garden.

Here’s your Friday musical shenanigans:

11:00 a.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists NEW!

This was one I couldn’t get out of my head. Songs with references to the night either in the titles or the lyrics. It was fun, but exhausting because it never wanted to end, and I’m sure I’ve missed some. But hey, that’s the way it goes.

You’ll hear B.B. King, Gregg Allman, John Mayall, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, Linda Ronstadt, Maria Muldaur, Carly Simon, Dr. John, Joe Walsh, The Beatles, Van Morrison, Them, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, John Cougar Mellencamp, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, The Traveling Wilburys and many, many more.

We’ll have the set list up under the Playlist tab before air time! Just scroll to the bottom.

7:00 p.m. Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton Live From Madison Square Garden, February 25-28, 2008

Here we have a great selection of songs from two musical legends recorded over three performances at Madison Square Garden in 2008. Unlike some, however, I personally consider Winwood the bigger talent here, but that’s me. He’s our guy here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Great day to listen in, particulary if you think that the night time is the right time. We are totally free; we ask no personal information; we seek no subscriptions; and we accept no advertising. It’s all about the music.

We’re Under The Influence, Maria Muldaur’s In the Spotlight, and We’ve Got a Pile of Trifectas, Monday, June 14, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s the beginning of another week here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re all business this morning. We’ve got a great line up for you today.

We’re Under the Influence today at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists EXPANDED!

Drugs, booze, you name it. We’ve all done it in our lifetime, and plenty of musicians and bands have written songs about it. We’ve got them here today in our expanded and updated playlist. Don’t be fooled into thinking Got To Get You Into My Life is about a woman and doesn’t belong here. McCartney himself admitted that he wrote it about his love for weed.

In addition to the Beatles, you’ll hear The Velvet Underground, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, and many more.

4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer who began her career in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village as part of the folk music revival of the early sixties. She has continued to roll on singing not only folk and blues, but jazz, country, pop, and R & B. She’s also loaned her pipes to the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt, and is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Trifectas R’Us

We’re bringing back the trifectas today. It has been a while. We’ve got them scheduled as follows for your listening pleasure:

10:00 a.m. Aretha Franklin

2:30 p.m. Steve Winwood

6:00 p.m. Canned Heat

8:00 p.m. The Rascals

We hope you’ll tune us in today. We highly encourage this because we know we play the best damned music on the planet for free (no small print), non-stop 24/7. Just do it.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell

Tonight, we have the second airing of this great album by two masters who, although meeting in 1974, took their sweet time making an album together. It was worth the wait.

Tune us in on this bluesy Tuesday. It’s too damned hot outside to do anything else but kick back and enjoy the tunes. And if you are working and have the space, all you need is a browser tab to give a listen.

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.
