Good Morning! There is no shortage of great music lined up today, including a visit from the Magnolia Sisters, an all-female Cajun band featuring Ann Savoy.

The Magnolia Sisters pay us a visit today here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s your musical lineup:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: First Take by Roberta Flack FINAL AIRING!

We start a bit early today with the final airing of our Album of The Week, First Take by Roberta Flack. This album is viewed as one of the greatest R & B albums of all time, so get on board while you can. Tomorrow we’ll have a new selection!

11:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

One of our favorite EP’s here in The Lounge. This is an all-encompassing tribute to soul and R & B that includes more than just Motown. You’ll hear Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Ronettes, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Nina Simone, LaVern Baker, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Sam Cooke, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Irma Thomas and more!

7:00 p.m. The Magnolia Sisters Live at The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival, Simi Valley, CA, May 23, 2015

This is one sweet band, led by Ann Savoy who teamed up with Linda Ronstadt as the ZoZo Sisters for the great album, Adieu False Heart. The Savoys have a long history of traditional Cajun music and it shows. This is a totally captivating musical genre, and these women have it down cold. We are currently on the hunt for more of their stuff and will be adding it to our rotation very soon.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Zoo Amphitheater, Oklahoma City, OK, September 2, 1985

We have another repeat performance here, but we haven’t aired this one since 2020, so it’ll be like brand new. Would it matter? If you’re a true Deadhead, you’re open to listening over and over and over and over…

Well, Weekenders, here we are again kicking off a two-day reprieve from the teeming masses of consuming humanity (all except for me; I’ve got one more day to go). What better way to go? Today, it’ll be musical mutiny in the workplace after the boss leaves. We’ll be flipping on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. After all, the only things I need are a computer, a free tab and a mouse. We’re on.

It’s Saturday in The Lounge With Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, The Final Airing of “Aftermath” and LIVE DEAD! Bringing Up the Rear, August 13, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists, and welcome to another Saturday here in The Memaid Lounge where we put the women of music squarely in charge of today’s festivities.

The Women of Music rule The Mermaid Lounge today!

Here’s your Saturday lineup:

10:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

Today we put the women of music squarely in the spotlight here in The Mermaid Lounge, and they never disappoint. You’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Chrissie Hynde, Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Valerie Carter, Nicolette Larson, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Aftermath by The Rolling Stones FINAL AIRING!

We bid a fond farewell to this Stones gem this evening, as we prepare to give you a brand new album for next week. It’s already lined up and ready to go. It debuts tomorrow morning.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland, San Francisco, October 22, 1978

We have a repeat performance, but we haven’t aired this one since January 2021, so it’s virtually brandy new. And what does it matter anyway? It’s The Dead. The worlds ultimate jam and road band.

Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream running non-stop 24/7 at no charge to the listening public. We do this for the music, not the money. We accept no advertising, so we don’t pass that capitalistic chatter on to you. It’s all music, all day and night.

We’re Full-On Friday With Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP and The Soul Sisters Bringing Up The Rear, August 5, 2022

Yes, it’s no lie: We’ve made it to Friday. It is upon us. And while some of us work Saturdays, there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel. What better way to deal with that than great music to get you there.

The Ladies of Soul take over The Mermaid Lounge tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

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

Morning and night are two concepts that musical artists spend a considerable amount of time on. Today’s EP covers the latter of the two. You will be treated to Warren Zevon, the J. Geils Band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Them, The Beatles, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, The Kinks, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Patti Smith, the Electric Prunes, Phoebe Snow, Joe Walsh, The Eagles, The Ronettes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, The Doors, Poco, Neil Diamond, The Animals, The Band, The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Steve Winwood, Cat Stevens, The Traveling Wilburys, Sam Cooke, Jimmy Cliff, Bonnie Raitt and more!

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

Yes, we do have a second volume on the “to do” list. I promise it will come sooner rather than later, but for now we give you Aretha Franklin, Martha & The Vandellas, Irma Thomas, Etta James, Mary Wells, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Little Eva, Carla Thomas, Kim Weston, The Ronettes, The Marvelettes, The Shirelles, Ann Peebles, The Staple Singers, Fontella Bass, Gladys Knight & The Pips and more!

Saturday in The Lounge Brings ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’, The Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later, June 11, 2022

Good Morning, Weekenders! It’s your time here in The Mermaid Lounge and we kick off the day with our ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’ EP (not to be confused with ‘M is For Motown’). This covers soul and R & B from all over the spectrum!

Today we’ve all got ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’

Here’s Saturday’s lineup:

10:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

Motown is the most renown, but it’s not the only record label for the genre. There was Stax with Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett; Muscle Shoals where Aretha Franklin released her first song in 1967; and Atlantic, with Ray Charles. Many of those who recorded for Muscle Shoals were distributed through Atlantic. We’ve got them all for you today including Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Ronettes, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Nina Simone, LaVern Baker, The Supremes, Sam Cooke, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Irma Thomas and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Living With the Animals by Mother Earth LAST AIRING!

Here’s the final airing of this great blues album featuring the amazing voice of Tracy Nelson. When you roll out of bed tomorrow morning there will be a brand new selection.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Dillon Stadium, Hartford, Connecticut, July 31, 1974

Another great soundboard recording from the Dead. It’s not new, but it hasn’t been aired since 2020 so it will be just like new. Remember, no two shows are the same anyway.

Get your weekend underway in style! We’ve got some great programming for you today interspersed in between all that great wide Open Stream. We’re totally free. That not only means that we’re free of commercial advertising, but we also don’t charge for anyone to listen. What’s not to love?

We Close Out The Work Week With Our ‘Ode To Morning’ EP and Etta James In the Spotlight Later, Friday, June 10, 2022

Happy Friday, Weekenders! It’s the end of another work week for most of us, but I have just one more day of servitude. Nevertheless, your musical journey is bright today!

Here’s your Friday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Ode To Morning: Various Artists

I don’t know what it’s like where you are this morning, but it’s very early here and the sunrise is magnificent today. It’s a perfect day for an ode to morning from Joni Mitchell, The Move, Fleetwood Mack, Foreigner, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Nina Simone, Cat Stevens, Hoyt Axton, The Beatles, Neil Young, The Rascals, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, James Taylor, Gram Parsons, Simon & Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Dan Fogelberg, Harry Chapin, Three Dog Night, Ry Cooder, Tim Buckley, Muddy Waters, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Chris Hillman, Badfinger and many more!

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

Etta James’ career spanned nearly six decades and, in that time, she stamped her name all over a variety of musical genres, including gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, and soul. Tonight we put her In the Spotlight.

Here we are as we approach ‘weekender’ status. Technically speaking, Fridays are the official start to weekend. The only question still up in the air is ‘what time does it start’. How about right now? We are on 24/7 and we’re totally free. Every single day. Because life is far to short to listen to bad music.

Midweek Brings Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP and Puts Creedence Clearwater Revival In the Spotlight Later, Wednesday, April 13, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve hit our midweek stride and we’ve got the women of music front and center this morning. Five hours of uninterrupted music for your listening pleasure.

The chicks are in charge of the tunes today!

Before, in between, and all through the night, we’ve got that wide Open Stream! It doesn’t end with the programming. In fact, the bulk of the day is our no-repeat continuous music. All of it completely free. No subscription or credit card required. What’s not to love here?

We Keep It Simple Today With Asleep at The Wheel’s Album of The Week and Our ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’ EP, Sunday, April 10, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Today we do something we’ve been wanting to do for a while, which is to introduce you to one of the finest Texas swing bands ever to walk the earth, Asleep at The Wheel. (That is, if you haven’t already heard them. I’m sure some of you have.)

Asleep at The Wheel.

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Route 66 by Asleep at The Wheel NEW!

I can vividly remember seeing this amazing band live at The Paradise in Boston back in the day. Man, there were people dancing on the tables they were so good. We chose this album because we felt it was a great way to introduce people to them. But they have made many albums and many live appearances over their half a century in music and, while we do have some of their stuff floating around our stream, I have a vast collection about to make it’s mark on our airwaves. Stay tuned. This is just the beginning.

3:00 p.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

Once again, we make our monthly pilgrimage to soul music mecca where you’ll hear Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Ronettes, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Nina Simone, LaVern Baker, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Sam Cooke, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and many more! That’s five uninterrupted hours of soul and R & B!

This is a total day of rest for most sane people. Those of you who “get it” are staying out of the retail fray today and taking a mental health break. This is the place to be. We’re on 24/7 uninterrupted at no charge to the listening public. What other musical outlet says that? None.

Begin Your Friday ‘Under the Influence’, and Get In the Groove With Etta James Later This Evening, November 19, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We have go a brand new ‘extended play’ set list for you today as we’ve greatly expanded Under The Influence and brought it up to EP status.

We kick off the day today with our new Under the Influence EP!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists UPDATED & EXPANDED

It is with great pleasure that we give you this as our latest extended play offering. We had fun making this one happen. You’ll hear Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, The Beatles, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Temptations, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Burden & War, The Fraternity of Man, and many more as you expand the outer limits of your musical minds.

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

Etta James’ career began the year I was born, in 1954. Right up through 2012, her big, earthy voice has interpreted many genres, including R & B/soul, the blues, gospel, jazz, and rock n’ roll. She gained fame with several hits, including Tell Mama, At Last, and I’d Rather Go Blind. She won six Grammy awards, and 17 blues music awards, and she is a resident of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (1993), The Blues Hall of Fame (2001), and Grammy Hall of Fame (1999). Learn more about Etta James here.

Shall I say it yet again? It is a great day to tune us in. We’re finally as the end of the work week (for some lucky souls) and we’ve got this great new, inspirational extended playlist to share with you. That’s nearly five hours of uninterrupted tales of drugs, drink and rock n’ roll. Hey, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another. This is the most fun you can have without actually doing it.

Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” Turned 50 This Summer. It is Our New Album of The Week. Then We Bring You Plenty of Soul on Sunday, September 12, 2021

Good Morning, Weekenders! Hope you’re all settled in for the weekend and ready for some great music because we’ve got it here! We celebrate a birthday of sorts, and we bring you a little bit of soul for most of the day.

The fun starts at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon!

Here’s your Sunday Funday programming:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blue by Joni Mitchell NEW!

Joni Mitchell’s Blue turned 50 years old in June, so this feature has been on our “to do” list for a while. It’s finally here. This album is rightfully considered to be one of the greatest albums ever recorded, with Mitchell writing and producing the entire masterpiece. It was made right after her break-up with Graham Nash and during her intense relationship with James Taylor, and the songs reflect those events in her life. It was released on June 22, 1971.

Blue was Joni Mitchell’s fourth studio release in a career that gave us so many great albums. The New York Times referred to the album as one of the 25 albums that represented “turning points and pinnacles in 20th-century popular music.”

3:00 p.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

You know how much we love long players here in The Mermaid Lounge. It’s our way of focusing on musical genres. We’re working on Reggae right at the moment. Finding the music and the singers is half the fun. This is a great long player covering five hours of soul and R & B.

We bring you Irma Thomas, The Ronettes, The Shirelles, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Etta James, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Drifters, Stevie Wonder, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Curtis Mayfield, Edwin Starr, LaVern Baker, Ray Charles, James Brown, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Al Green, Aretha Franklin and many more!

Even the gods took Sunday off, so that means you can too. That also means it’s a great day to kick back and tune us in. I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but the sun is out here and we are in the mood for some great music as we go about our business. Join your friends from around the world. They know what we’re all about. So do we. It’s called music. Not money.
