Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are already at midweek and we’ve got great stuff for you today, including our brand new ‘Long Live The Queens’ playlist. Read on for details!

The Queens make their debut at 7:00 p.m. this evening

Here is your midweek lineup:

10:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

Dreams are funny things. Some people have them. Some don’t. But plenty have sung songs about them or we wouldn’t have nearly five hours of uninterrupted music from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Aerosmith, Crowded House, the Moody Blues, Van Morrison, The Eurythmics, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Nanci Griffith, The Electric Prunes, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, The Mamas & The Papas, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, The Allman Brothers Band, Supertramp, Randy Newman, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Widespread Panic, The Youngbloods, Jimmy Ruffin, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, Patsy Cline, Joe Walsh, Dusty Springfield, k.d. lang, and more!

7:00 p.m. Long Live The Queens: Various Artists NEW!

We feature four queens here for you: Linda Ronstadt, the undisputed Queen of Rock; Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul; Irma Thomas, The Soul Queen of New Orleans; and Koko Taylor, Queen of The Blues. Tune in for something really special here.

We’re here every day uninterrupted 24/7 at absofuckinglutely no charge to you. Your money is no good here in The Mermaid Lounge. This is all about the music. Get on board, people. You won’t be disturbed by advertising or overly-chatty DJ’s either.

Sunday We Celebrate Tom Petty’s Top 100 Songs, Intro Our New AOW by Alison Krauss, and Take You Through The Night With Our ‘In Your Dreams’ EP, May 29, 2022

We’re shaking things up a bit here for the Memorial Day Weekend. It has nothing to do with patriotism. That’s an ugly word these days. It’s about the music, people. And we’ve got plenty of it.

Today we give you Tom Petty’s Top 100, as a solo artist, a Heartbreaker, with Mudcrutch, and as Charlie T. Wilbury Jnr.

Here’s your Sunday lineup:

8:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Forget About It by Alison Krauss NEW!

Released in 1999, this album by Alison Krauss is categorized as “country, bluegrass, and adult contemporary” (whatever that means). Critical commentary on this one is that in spite of the dobro and mandolin, Alison Krauss is a pop star at heart. Please. I never listen to critics. If I did, I wouldn’t have the album collection I do. Music is in the ear of the beholder. And life is too short to listen to shitty music. Regardless of what they call it, this is a great album.

10:00 a.m. Tom Petty’s Top 100 Songs UPDATED!

We started at 50 songs the first time we aired this; then moved up to 65. To hell with it, Petty’s up to 100 now and he deserves to be there. We’ve got Petty solo, as a Heartbreaker, with Mudcrutch, and as Charlie T. Wilbury Jnr. Most are original compositions. Some are covers. Some were only ever done as part of ‘live’ performances. No matter. The man is a musical godsend. I think we’re pretty measured on this station, and tend to underplay our house bands to remain in control. Today, we get to do the opposite.

7:00 p.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

We do not normally play an EP at 7:00 p.m. but that changes today. We take you into the evening hours with our ‘In Your Dreams’ multi-artist EP. We have a lot of listeners at night from other countries, and it’s only fair they get exposure to some of these. So, there you have it. You’ll hear Nanci Griffith, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Aerosmith, Crowded House, the Moody Blues, Van Morrison, The Eurythmics, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, The Mamas & The Papas, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, The Allman Brothers Band, Supertramp, Randy Newman, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Widespread Panic, The Youngbloods, Jimmy Ruffin, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, Patsy Cline, Joe Walsh, Bruce Springsteen, k.d. lang, Dusty Springfield, and more!

Get on it, people. We’re moving into the bowels of summer in fine form here with our house bands at the helm. Join your friends from around the world who know what we’re all about! We’re free 24/7, and our rotation is unmolested by advertising. You can’t go wrong here.

At Week’s End We’ve Got Our ‘In Your Dreams’ Multi-Artist EP and Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight Later, Friday, April 29, 2022

We’re winding down the work week today (unless, of course, you’re in retail hell). We’ve got our newest EP, ‘In Your Dreams’ along with Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight bringing up the rear.

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers, nightmares and other events that occur after dark.

Here’s your Friday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers and nightmares. We’ve got them in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Aerosmith, Crowded House, the Moody Blues, Van Morrison, the Eurythmics, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Nanci Griffith, The Electric Prunes, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, The Mamas & The Papas, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, The Allman Brothers Band, Supertramp, Randy Newman, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Widespread Panic, The Youngbloods, Jimmy Ruffin, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, Patsy Cline, Joe Walsh, Bruce Springsteen, k d lang, Dusty Springfield, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel

We’re dusting this one off after a long winter’s nap. It’s time to break it out! Believe it or not, these guys met in elementary school in 1953 and began writing songs together. They are one of the best-selling groups of the 1960s, and songs like Sound of Silence, Mrs. Robinson, and Bridge Over Troubled Water reached number one on music charts worldwide. More than half a million people showed up in New York’s Central Park in 1981, which remains one of the most widely attended concerts in music history. What is not to love about these guys? They ‘ve made some of the best music on the planet, whether together or solo. But today, they are Simon & Garfunkel.

Great day to tune us in, folks, as is every day. We’ve got non-stop music, totally free of charge, 24/7. We don’t ask for a commitment of any kind, a credit card, or personal information. All we ask is that you help spread the word if you like us. We do not take advertising, so we don’t have money to spend on advertising.

10:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur got her start in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village during the great folk music revival of the sixties. Since then, she’s added many more musical genres to her repertoire over a decades-long career. Tune in tonight at 7:00 p.m. to see what we mean.

Before, in between, and after we have 24/7 wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. Who knows what she has in store! But one thing we know for certain here, she has impeccable musical taste.
