It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt Live at the Rainbow Room, and Our Album of The Week, September 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are on another Tuesday Bluesday with Stevie Ray Vaughan. We also toss in some Bonnie Raitt, always good for those bluesy days.

Stevie Ray Vaughan-1

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! Stevie Ray Vaughan: Blues You Can Use, Recorded Live on the Live Alive Tour, Philadelphia, PA, June 30, 1987   NEW!

Stevie Ray Vaughan was known as “the second coming of the blues” before his untimely death in a helicopter crash at the age of 35 in 1990, but his legend endures as one of the most amazing blues guitarists of all time. Bonnie Raitt dedicated her album Luck of The Draw to Stevie Ray. It’s only fitting that they are scheduled here on the same day.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Heaven Is In Your Mind by Traffic

Steve Winwood is another of those artists whose legend will endure long after his mortal life, and with good reason. Everything this guy has touched is worth listening to on some level, and he has been around for a very long time. One of my favorite videos of all time is Steve Winwood and Tom Petty on stage together for Can’t Find My Way Home during the Heartbreakers’ 2014 tour.

7:00 p.m.     Bonnie Raitt Live at The Rainbow Room, Philadelphia, PA, February 22, 1972

Bonnie Raitt is another of those female pioneers who never disappoints. It’s amazing to me that even the classic rock stations fail to give these women their due. But here in The Mermaid Lounge, their presence is scheduled to grow.

So, again. What the hell are you waiting for?

Good Morning, Ungovernables! TGIF, baby! We’ve got a great day ahead that includes two brand new playlists for your listening pleasure. Both are “don’t miss” events!

tom with the Shelters

10:00 a.m.   Badass Guitarists, Volume 1: Various Artists

This playlist could have gone on forever. Instead, we’ll break it down into small bites. It lasts longer that way. From Mike Campbell of The Heartbreakers (The guitar solo at the end of Runnin’ Down a Dream has a life of its own and is untouchable) to Slowhand, to Jimmy Page, this is the best of the best here.

1:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 1

This is a repeat performance of the very first episode from last Sunday before we release Episode 2. This will repeat one more time tomorrow as well. This episode is entitled Christopher Columbus Was Not a Hero. Learn about the man heralded as one who found the new world but who, in reality, unleashed a nighmare on the peaceful Native Americans already living here.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

We don’t often spotlight new music, but we are today. Tom Petty had a ton of musical projects in the fire, one of which was mentoring a young band named The Shelters. In fact, he produced their first record in 2016, which was recorded at The Clubhouse, where Petty and The Heartbreakers recorded. Give a listen to the Shelters. They’ll also be added to the Standard Rotation.

7:00 p.m.   The Secret World of U.S. Elections

Back before Julian Assange was vilified by a clueless American public following the lead of the fraudulent mainstream media, he gave us some insights into the reality of our elections. Trust me when I tell you it has not improved. In fact, like everything else when left unattended, it has gotten worse.
