Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

We’ll Be Ringing in The New Year in Style With Our #BecomeUngovernable House EP, and Two Live New Year’s Eve Shows Later, Friday, December 31, 2021

Good Morning, Revelers! We are kicking off the New Year’s Eve celebration in style with our House Extended Playlist, and two live New Year’s Eve shows from two of our favorites!

We’ve got five hours of very inspirational music for you!

Here’s your New Year’s Eve line-up:

9:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

The music that makes up the greatest part of our DNA, including songs from Barry McGuire, The Beatles, The Temptations, CSNY, Pink Floyd, Peter Tosh, Edwin Starr, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Donovan, Jimmy Cliff, Cat Stevens, The Association, Marvin Gaye, The Band, Arlo Guthrie, George Harrison, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, and more!

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The New Year’s Eve Concert Live at The Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, December 31, 1978

They were just musical babies here, but they were kicking ass and taking names. There are many reasons why TPATH is one of our House Bands, one of them being that they’re one of the best live performers on the planet. This concert is one for the books.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at the Closing of Winterland, San Francisco, December 31, 1978

Meanwhile, back in San Fran, the Dead was closing one great venue at Winterland. We give you a special edition of LIVE DEAD! tonight to help ring in the New Year.

There’s nothing like good music to help ring in a new beginning and, hopefully, better fortunes for all of us in the New Year. In the meantime, stay safe and push the button below. OK?

Got Those Post-Turkey Blues? We’ve Got Some Great Musical Programming Today Designed to Make You Smile, Friday, November 26, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and we’re here to make you feel even more thankful with great musical programming at the end of the work week.

Today we give you the music that inspired this station!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

Yeah. Today we give you all the reasons we started this radio station in one great EP. In all honesty, there are those who came after these artists who are also very much part of this station’s DNA as well, but these are the people who gave me (personally) my own music after years of listening to my sisters’ music. These folks also musically represented the times in which they lived. You will hear Barry McGuire, the Temptations, CSNY, Edwin Starr, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke, Peter Tosh, The Byrds, Donovan, Joan Baez The Association, The Band, Arlo Guthrie, Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Bill Withers

Everyone knows Lean On Me, Ain’t No Sunshine, and Use Me for sure. Bill Withers was that guy. A great singer-songwriter who had an amazing number of hits in a relatively short fifteen-year career. Today we put that guy, his hits, and more In the Spotlight.

Tune us in and get that L-tryptophan out of your system. It’s wake-up time and the music is on 24/7. Before, in between, and after our programming, we are circulating the biggest cache of music anywhere all for free. No kidding. No strings. No fucking lie.

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of “Hard Promises” Followed by Our House Playlist, Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have another light programming day on tap. But what we have to offer is pretty potent, including our House playlist.

Today we bring you some of the music that inspired the radio station!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Not Our Album of The Week: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Hard Promises by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers NEW!

This is an occasional feature here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hard Promises, released on May 5, 1981. It’s hard to imagine an album this good coming right on the heels of The Heartbreakers’ breakout album, Damn The Torpedoes! (last week’s Album of The Week, by the way), but it did.

It’s true that The Waiting was the anchor of Hard Promises, but there’s also A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me), Nightwatchman, A Thing About You, Something Big, Insider (featuring Stevie Nicks), and one of my favorite Heartbreaker songs of all time, Kings Road.

4:00 p.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

This is nearly three hours of the music that originally inspired me to start this crazy endeavor to begin with. It is due for an upgrade soon, but it’s still one of the best playlists we feature with Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Animals, The Byrds, The Who, The Chambers Brothers, The Temptations, John Lennon, T. Rex, Barry McGuite, Edwin Starr, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joan Baez, Peter Tosh, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. It’s midweek. We all need a break. This is the perfect opportunity, is it not?

Our Official House Playlist, Our Album of The Week, and Some Supergroup Music Await You on Thursday, March 18, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! After a day of Open Stream, we’re back with some programming here in The Mermaid Lounge! We’ve got a fine collection of material here for you today.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is one of the supergroups you’ll hear later tonight!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

We kick off the day with some great music. In fact, some of the music that helped inspire me to start this radio station. You’ll hear Bob Dylan, Barry McGuire, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, The Beatles, John Lennon, Ten Year’s After, The Who, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Songbird by Eva Cassidy

The newest addition to our women’s line-up is Eva Cassidy, who died tragically at the age of 33 from cancer in 1996. We are winding down on Songbird. We will have one more airing on Saturday before choosing a new album. Don’t miss it!

7:00 p.m. Sounds of The Supergroups: Various Artists

We haven’t heard this one in a long while, so tonight we pay respects to the supergroups. This playlist features Derek & The Dominos; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; The Traveling Wilburys; Cream; The Highwaymen; Blind Faith; and Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris (yes, a bona fide supergroup even though the male dominated rock world never even mentions them in association with the word).

Tune us in. We’re free all the time, we run uninterrupted 24/7, no advertising, no “subscription” required, and no personal information requested. Did I mention you don’t need to take your credit card out of your wallet?

Jefferson Airplane Live in Copenhagen, Emmylou Harris Rarities, Our House Playlist, and The Shadow on Wednesday, February 3, 2021

We move into midweek with some great musical programming, including some vintage live Jefferson Airplane in Copenhagen.

From left, Marty Balin, Grace Slick, Spencer Dryden, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, and Jack Casady.

The big kahuna of psychedelic rock opens up our programming live from Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.

3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris Forgotten Gems and Rarities

In spite of her country roots, Emmylou Harris never wanted to be defined as a modern-day country music singer, preferring to define herself on her own terms instead. She has done that throughout her career.

7:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist

We’ve got a few hours of some of the best hits of the sixties waiting for you later this evening. You won’t want to miss it.

10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 10 Murders in Wax

The second airing of this week’s episode of The Shadow, in which our hero must figure out who is replacing wax figures with actual corpses. Ick.

Tune us in. You won’t regret it. And we promise we are everything we say we are. Or we wouldn’t say it.

It’s Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday Until Our House Playlist and The Shadow Come Along Later, December 30, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! This is another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday. We’ll be circulating 27,000+ songs now that we upgraded our standard rotation. But we’ve got some great programming later!

Mr. Lennon tried to get us to “Give Peace A Chance.” We didn’t listen. You should listen to our House Playlist later for other warnings we didn’t bother to heed.

Here’s today’s line-up:

All Day (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday

Again, circulating 27,000+ songs for your listening pleasure. If you’re fortunate enough to work from home, why not put this on in the background?

5:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist

All of the music that reflects our attitude here in The Mermaid Lounge. Hear John Lennon, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, The Temptation, Peter Tosh, and many more!

10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 05 Hounds In The Hills

A replay of this week’s episode. It’s 30 minutes of outright suspense, then back to our Open Stream.

Tune us in. We’re free. We don’t run commercials. We don’t employ DJ’s that don’t know how to shut the fuck up, and we don’t interrupt or cut songs short. That’s another bonus.

It’s a mostly open-stream Wednesday!

Here’s your only programming for today:

6:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist UPDATED!

Our very first playlist ever back in 2017, recently updated. The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, Ten Years After, Bob Dylan, The Buffalo Springfield, The Who, Genesis, and many more.
