We Celebrate Linda Ronstadt’s Birthday With All Linda Programming, Save for Our Album of The Week, Thursday, July 15, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s Thursday and it’s also Linda Ronstadt’s 75th birthday. We have people who are our “house” favorites. Linda is one of them. We plan on featuring these artists on our five-year anniversary, so stay tuned. But today and tomorrow? These are Linda days.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt

We cover Linda’s career from her very early days with The Stone Poneys up until her very last album. That’s a fifty-year career span. Ronstadt always says that she doesn’t identify herself as a rock n’ roll singer, but during the 70s, she was the number one female rock singer on the planet, selling out arenas across the country and playing a 20-night stand at The Universal Amphitheatre. I know. I went to forty of those concerts across the country.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers

Our second to last airing of this beauty, another great effort by Jakob Dylan and his mates. Our final airing will be on Saturday, so don’t miss this one.

7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, May 14, 1995

This was one of the concerts I attended in a great old hall with excellent sound. Adding to the musical magic of the night was Valerie Carter as the opening act, and who joined Linda on stage for a few songs as well. Linda Ronstadt always said she would rather have been part of an all-girl band. We’ll get to that stuff tomorrow.

We will take two days to celebrate Ronstadt because there is that much material to cover, and because we remain committed to more open stream than programming. So, tune us in and help us celebrate Linda’s 75th year. Although she can no longer sing, she has left a great musical legacy behind.

Today We Have New ‘Live’ Neil Young, Jakob Dylan In the Spotlight, and Drivin’ Songs, Monday, April 12, 2021

Good Morning, today we have some brand new ‘live’ Neil Young for you to start off the week. We’re sure you’ll like this performance with The International Harvesters.

Neil Young practicing with The International Harvesters in the Harvest Barn.

Here’s Monday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Neil Young & The International Harvesters Live at Austin City Limits, September 25, 1984 NEW!

Neil Young has been around the horn and he’s played with many great bands, Crazy Horse, Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, but this is one we dug up out of the archives. Cannot even remember where I found this, but we’re sure you’ll like his performance with The International Harvesters.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

This playlist is actually Jakob Dylan with and without The Wallflowers, to be precise. But it’s good to know that they have just announced a new album together, the first in nine years. Bob’s boy, as you might guess, is no slouch.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream! Drivin’ Songs: Various Artists

This is another of our various artist playlists we haven’t aired for a while. Tune in for The Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Golden Earring, Linda Ronstadt, Mudcrutch, Rare Earth, Bruce Springsteen, The Moody Blues, Deep Purple, The Beatles, and more! It’s a great way to close out the day’s programming.

We’re free. Not for profit. Non-intrusive. And we’ve got some of the greatest music on the planet continually in play 24/7. What more could you want? Except for the link, which is below.

Good Morning From The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge: 12/9/2020

Well, here we are again live from The Mermaid Lounge imparting our trivial musical knowledge to enrich your lives. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it?

Tom Petty & George Harrison, friends to the end.

Here’s today’s lesson from The College:

December 9, 1963: Meet The Supremes, their first album, was released by Motown Records. The LP contains the hit When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes.

December 9, 1967: Before a gig in New Haven, Connecticut, Jim Morrison got into an argument with a policeman. The policeman responded by macing Morrison. Later on stage, Morrison told the story of the incident, which prompted the police to turn on the house lights and arrest Morrison for ‘breach of peace’ and ‘resisting arrest.’

December 9, 1972: Three Dog Night’s Pieces of April enters the Billboard chart. The song, written by Dave Loggins, with reach the Top 20.

December 9, 1974: George Harrison released his first album on his Dark Horse record label. The name of the album was Dark Horse.

December 9, 1980: One day after John Lennon was shot and killed, Yoko Ono released this statement: “There is no funeral for John. John loved and prayed for the human race. Please do the same for him. Love, Yoko and Sean.”

December 9, 1992: George Harrison received the first Century Award, presented by friend Tom Petty at the third Billboard Music Awards in Universal City, California.

December 9, 1995: Even though they disbanded 25 years earlier, The Beatles have the #1 album when Anthology hits the top (it remains there for three weeks). It includes Beatles rarities in the form of demos, alternate versions, live versions and previously unreleased material. It will eventually sell 4 million copies.

Born On This Day

December 9, 1969: Singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan (solo; The Wallflowers) was born in New York City.

And that it for today’s lesson from The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge!

It’s Absolutely The Animals, Open Stream Afternoon, and Jakob Dylan With & Without The Wallflowers Later, Monday, November 9, 2020

It’s another Monday in Paradise, Music Lovers! I know. I hate Mondays too, but if you have an extra tab and pull us up, we guarantee you a great day, at least musically.

Jakob Dylan is In The Spotlight, with & without his band, The Wallflowers.

Here’s Monday’s line-up from The Mermaid Lounge:

11:00 a.m. Deb’s Stream: Absolutely The Animals!

The Animals always had that gritty, bluesey sound. The band was formed in the early sixties in Newcastle upon Tyne. They moved to London in 1964. One of my favorite singers of all time was their frontman, Eric Burdon. This is a great playlist.

Afternoon Open Stream Monday

We stream 26,000+ songs all afternoon with some great Three-in-a-Row’s tossed in. You’ll hear Emmylou Harris, The Byrds The Rolling Stones and Wilson Pickett, among others.

6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

Jakob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter who also happens to be Bob Dylan’s son. He’s best known as the lead singer and primary songwriter for The Wallflowers, a band he formed in 1989. Prior to that he had a solo career, and was in some indie bands. You’ll love his stuff, people.

It’s Monday. What better day to tune us in? Come on. You know you want to, and there’s no need to debate. We’re free. There’s no advertising. And there’s no need to give us personal information. We don’t ask for any.

Jakob Dylan in The Spotlight, Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers at The Ryman, and the Final Airing of ‘The Man From Yesterday’ on Friday, July 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are again at the end of the week, and we’ve got some great stuff here. Today’s Emmylou Harris adventure is new to our station!

Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

Here’s Friday’s programming:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan (with and without The Wallflowers)

Yes, it’s Bob’s boy. And he’s really more than just a little good. Today we feature his solo stuff plus music he made with his band, The Wallflowers.

3:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday  FINAL AIRING!

Today will be the final airing of this weeks’ episode of The Inner Sanctum. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode.

7:00 p.m.     Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers Live at The Ryman (April 30-May 2, 1991)   NEW!

Emmylou Harris and her acoustic band, The Nash Ramblers, played three nights at the run-down Ryman in 1991. It is captured here in the 1992 Grammy Award winning performance. This event spearheaded the revitalization of the former home of the Grand Ole Opry. My friend George and I were so taken by country music back in the day, that we drove to Nashville to go to the Opry. It was 1977 and I was just 23; George was 21, We never got to see the Ryman Auditorium from the inside. By then, the Grand Ole Opry had moved to new digs. But I’m sure glad the Ryman is back.

We play some great shit. And we don’t over-play either. We run 24/7 and offer just about seven hours of programming; the rest is all open stream. We’re free. We don’t ask for your personal information. We do not require a credit card. Ever.

4:00 p.m.     Linda Ronstadt Live on Boston Common, July 22, 1983   NEW!

By the eighties, Linda Ronstadt knew there was ‘something wrong’ with her voice, but none of us in the audience even noticed. Another great performance by the most accomplished, versatile, talented female singer of all time.

7:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers, Solo

Last week we featured Willie’s boy. This week, Bob’s boy. He’s no slouch either.
