Good Morning, Gang. We’ve got a great line-up on this fine day here in The Mermaid Lounge, including our ‘On The Map’ playlist (not an EP, by the way).
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. On The Map: Various Artists
We haven’t heard this one for a bit and we think it’s a good time to break it out. This particular playlist makes references to states, cities and other famous (or infamous) locations in the title, lyrics, or both! You’ll hear Asleep at The Wheel, Little Feat, America, Ray Charles, Neil Young, the Grateful Dead, the Lovin’ Spoonful, The Association, Fats Domino, Irma Thomas, Bonnie Raitt, Jesse Winchester, James Taylor, CSNY, Tom Rush, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, and more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Luxury Liner by Emmylou Harris
We’re winding down on this one, folks. This is the next-to-last airing with the final airing coming on Saturday, so get in on it before it’s gone!
7:00 p.m. James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Royal Albert Hall, London, October 28, 1970
It was that kind of time in music. Everyone was hanging out together (in and out of relationships), many in Laurel Canyon where those echoes were heard all around the world. This is a classic, folks.
Join us, and I don’t mean that literally because we don’t require you “joining” or “subscribing” to anything. We mean “joining” as in tuning us in with your neighbors around the world because, no matter what the GOP tells you, we don’t all have to speak the same language to appreciate good music.
