It’s Saturday and We Have Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP, the Final Airing of “American Beauty,” and LIVE DEAD! Later, July 2, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! How the hell are you all this fine, eerily disgustingly humid morning? Well, if you don’t like the soup outside, we give you an opportunity to hunker down with some great music today.

It’s a Dead kind of day here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

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

We’ve got an EP with songs waxing poetic about the morning, and also one about the night. This is the latter of the two as you will hear Warren Zevon, the J. Geils Band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Them, The Beatles, Van Morrison, Patti Smith, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bruce Springsteen, The Kinks, the Electric Prunes, Phoebe Snow, The Eagles, Joe Walsh, The Ronettes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, The Doors, Poco, Neil Diamond, The Animals, The Band, The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Steve Winwood, Cat Stevens, The Traveling Wilburys and more!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Baltimore Civic Center, Baltimore, MD, March 26, 1973 NEW!

We’ve got a brand new soundboard recording of The Dead here live in Baltimore. This one’s nearly four hours of music.

Why not make today the day you join your friends from around the globe? You’re never alone, we’re global and there’s always someone tuned in at all hours. That’s because we have great basic principles here: We never air more programming than we do Open Stream; we never charge for a subscription; and we don’t employ DJs who like the sound of their voices more than they do music. Did I mention we’re advertising-free and run 24/7 without interruption. What is not to love here?

We Close The Work Week With Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP, and The Original All-Girl Revue, Friday, June 3, 2022

Well, here we are again at the end of another work week. And this time it really is the end of the work week for me because I am taking Saturday off. We’ve got a great EP and a visit from the women of music for you today. A great way to end the week.

These are just some of the women you’ll hear tonight at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

10:00 a.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists

You know, some of us are night owls. Some of us are at our best in the morning. This one’s for the night owl in all of us. We’ve got songs about the night from Warren Zevon, the J.

As always, we run 24/7 totally free. That means before, in between and after our programming, we give you our great wide Open Stream from our 27,000+ song rotation. You’d be hard pressed to hear the same song twice in a week, let alone in a day. Tune us in. You won’t know unless you try. And it won’t cost a cent for you to find out.

Some playlists are long; others short. By our standards, this one is pretty short but oh, so sweet. We give you the opening songs from both the US and UK Beatle album releases. As you know, some were different country-to-country and, in some cases, albums were released in one country and not in another. We do not focus on compilations or post-career releases…just the studio albums released on the Beatles labels over the years (Capitol, Parlophone, Apple, and so on).

A couple of more comments on this playlist, there is a complete list (with notes) on the blog under the Playlist tab should you wish to take a look. And while some sources do not include “With A Little Help From My Friends” as part of the opening to Sgt. Pepper, we here in The Mermaid Lounge do.

Come on, people. It’s midweek and we’re going strong around the planet this morning. It’s time to tune us in. We’re free 24/7. No credit card or subscription required. No personal information requested. We’re all about the music.

Monday of this week (November 29) marked the 20th anniversary of George Harrison leaving this planet. We may be a bit late, but we’re never a dollar short because money means nothing here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we pay homage to Harrison as a Beatle, as the founder of The Traveling Wilburys, and as a solo artist.

Tom Petty once said of George Harrison, “I would assure all his fans that George was as beautiful as they pictured him. And maybe more.” Nothing else needs to be said here.

Before, in between, and after we have our untouchable wide Open Stream, circulating 27,000 songs and growing weekly. Tune us in. It’s all on us. No hidden fees. No personal information required. Just a couple of good ears and a computer tab will do it. (Oh, yeah, you can also listen on your phone.)

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.
