The Band Live in Asbury Park, The All-Girl Revue Too, and REVOLVER Highlight Thursday, September 3, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have a great line-up today from The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re firing on all cylinders right from the start!

the Band

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   The Band: Live at The Casino Arena, Asbury Park, New Jersey, July 20, 1976

The started as Bob Dylan’s back-up band, and the rest is history. The Band left us an amazing volume of just plain great fucking music, from their hits to their deep cuts. That’s why we love them here in The Mermaid Lounge.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles

No matter who you talk to about Beatle albums, the consensus is that this was a vast turning point for the band from all perspectives.

7:00 p.m.     The All-Girl Revue Too: Various Artists   UPDATED!

We’re back with an updated version of The All-Girl Revue Too. Hear Norah Jones, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Laura Nyro, Chi Coltrane, Etta James and more!

It’s a beauty of a day to give us a shot. So, don’t fuck this up.

Stephen Stills & Manassas Live in Amsterdam, and Miss Etta James Takes Her Turn in The Spotlight, Friday, August 7, 2020

Greetings, Ungovernables! We have light programming today and many hours of Open Stream, but the scheduled music we have is pretty cool.

Stephen Stills & Manassas

Here’s Friday’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m.   Stephen Stills & Manassas Live at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, March 23, 1972  NEW!

Stephen Stills’ musical talents and contribution cannot be denied, but his life seems to have been lived in short musical periods where his ego dictated the direction. His Manassas period was no different — short and sweet. Stills formed the band in the fall of 1971. By 1972, the band dissolved, but not before giving us some great music.

7:00 p.m.   In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James  NEW!

Etta James once said tha the only place where she felt at home was on the stage, where she sang the blues, soul, R & B, jazz, gospel, and rock n’ roll. She is best known for hits like Tell Mama, At Last, The Wallflower, and I’d Rather go Blind.

Tune us in. You cannot go wrong. Believe me. I’d never lie to you.

We Open Women’s Week With Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and The Queens of Soul, Sunday, July 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re kicking off Women’s Week with a final Ronstadt Birthday Bash concert and a set from the Queens of Soul. Western Wall: The Tucson Sessiions debuts as our Album of the Week.

 

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Western Wall, The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris   NEW!

Two friends got together to sing, and the result was this most amazing album. It was the only tour I missed due to  my partner’s illness at the time. It was hard for me to part with those tickets. On the bright side, I gave them to Ronstadt fans…my sister and her husband.

3:00 p.m.     Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theater in Boston, May 14, 1995   NEW!

I did not miss this one though, and it was one of the most amazing performances Linda Ronstadt ever delivered. The Orpheum may be old, but it’s a great sounding venue. Valerie Carter opened this show and then joined Ronstadt on stage during her show. This incredible set list is up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom.

Note: We will be featuring Valerie Carter on Wednesday.

7:00 p.m.    The Queens of Soul, Volume 1: Various Artists

Hear Carla Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Little Eva, Ann Peebles, The Supremes, The Ronettes and many others!

Today should be the day you tune us in. No other radio station I know gives women a platform like this one, not even Sirius-XM. And unlike many others, we’re totally free. We don’t even ask for a credit card.
