It’s always jumpin’ here in The Mermaid Lounge on Tuesday Bluesday, and today will be no exception. We’re free 24/7 with no surprises, no credit card required…you don’t even have to give us your name. All you need is a free tab and a mouse so you can click on the button below.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Big, Bad Blues EP, Albert Collins ‘Live’ at The Fillmore, and Our AOW in Between, October 25, 2022

Happy Tuesday Bluesday, blues lovers! We’ve got your covered today with Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues and some live Albert Collins. In between, we’ve got some psychedelia for you.

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

9:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

We’ve got a few blues playlists here, but this is the grand kahuna. You’ll hear music up and down the blues spectrum with Delbert McClinton, B.B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, J.J.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus by Spirit

Just a short break for some psychedelic music here as we bring you what is considered the final psychedelic masterpiece of the original psychedelic music era.

7:00 p.m. Albert Collins Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA, December 26-28, 1969

Some ‘live’ Albert Collins recorded over a three-day stretch at one great venue, The Fillmore West. We haven’t heard this one for a while and it jumped right out. We have been remiss. Enjoy.

Here I go again: Why not join our listeners? There’s absolutely no cost to you. We are not a corporate entity, nor do we have the desire to become one. We just play music. We are not all things to all people. We do not play rap. And if we did, we certainly would not be playing anything that came out of Ye’s mouth. We do not play head-banging hard rock. We do not play hip-hop or disco. But we play just about everything else.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday and Our Big ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP, Koko Taylor In the Spotlight, and The AOW to Start It All Off October 11, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Today we’ve got our big ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP along with Koko Taylor, The Queen of The Blues, In the Spotlight later. In between, it’s Dr. John’s AOW.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Gris-Gris by Dr. John

The second airing of this great New Orleans R & B meets psychedelic voodoo album is here for your listening pleasure. It may not quite be the blues, but it sets the tone.

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

There’s nothing like a trip to Chicago to catch some blues. Been there on business several times and never failed to find a great venue to visit. You’ll hear from Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson, Son Seals, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Koko Taylor

Koko Taylor’s raw, powerful voice led to her title as Queen of The Blues. Koko was no delicate flower; she was a kic-ass, take-no-prisoners blues vocalist with attitude. And we love her in The Mermaid Lounge and give her the spotlight treatment today.

There’s nothing like Tuesday Bluesday to cut your teeth on a great radio station. We don’t infect the airwaves with commercial advertising or mouthy D.J.’s who like to talk through the first minute of every damned song. Instead, we rely on The Music Mermaid to take us through the day. As you know, she has impeccable taste in music.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Big, Bad Blues EP and Some ‘Live’ Stevie Ray Vaughan On The Docket, September 27, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Another Tuesday Bluesday has rolled around and we’ve got some great programming for you today that starts with five hours of uninterrupted blues of all kinds!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

10:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

We’ve got some great blues material on this station, but this is our biggest, baddest Tuesday Bluesday feature every month where we shower you with all kinds of blues from artists like Delbert McClinton, B.B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, J.J. Cale, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Koko Taylor, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Allman, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations

The only diversion from our blues programming today is for this great Album of The Week from 1969 where The Temps introduced us to a new genre called ‘psychedelic soul.’

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Bluebird Lounge, Ft. Worth, Texas, September 30, 1979

We close out today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming with a guy who left us much too soon. Stevie Ray Vaughan was, without a doubt, one of the greatest masters of blues guitar and one dominant presence on stage. See for yourself tonight.

Tuesday Bluesday generally brings out a lot of listeners, but we’re not concerned with numbers here because this is a labor of musical love. We do not charge for you to listen…no ‘subscription’ required here. That means you never have to divulge your personal information or give us a credit card number. There are things you can’t do here, like build personal playlists but, then again, that was never what radio was about anyway. When we were kids, radio was about anxiously waiting for the next song and not knowing what it was going to be. That’s what you’ve got here.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday with Our ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP and ‘Live’ Johnny Winter Bringing Up The Rear, September 13, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are again in the midst of another Tuesday Bluesday! Today we take a trip to Chicago for some blues.

We start off Tuesday Bluesday with our big, bad Chicago blues EP!

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

We travel to Chicago for a dose of the blues with Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Son Seals, Sonny Boy Williamson, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!

7:00 p.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York City, NY, September 5, 1978

One of the best bluesmen of all time here, albeit a bit overlooked at times. Winter was not only a great blues guitarist and singer, known for his high-energy blues albums and live performances in the late 60s and 70s, but he also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for the great Muddy Waters.

9:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Electric Music for The Mind and Body, Country Joe & The Fish

We close out the day’s programming outside the realm of the blues with one of the first psychedelic albums to come out of San Francisco.

Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge is always a great take, so why not join us today. If you’ve never experienced #BecomeUngovernable Radio before, this would be a great day to start. We’re on with our friends from around the world already. Join us. We’re totally free and ask for no information. The only requirement is curiosity, a computer, a free tab and the will to switch to a better music source.

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at the Mann Music Center, Philadelphia, PA, June 30, 1987

We close out our musical programming tonight with a live outing from Stevie Ray Vaughan, one of the greatest blues guitarists in musical history. Even B. B. King and Lucille agree with that assessment, I might add.

Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. As you well know, she has impeccable taste in music. We’re totally free, 24-7, no strings and absolutely no surprises. And we never ask for your personal information. This is a labor of love inspired by my many summer days sitting around in Medford, Massachusetts with my friends listening to WMEX-AM on my transistor radio. Tune us in.

5:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Songs for Judy by Neil Young

It’s a longer than usual AOW; almost like a concert. This is an amazing compilation of Neil Young’s opening acoustic set from his 1976 tour with Crazy Horse. This is our second airing. You definitely want to get this one in by Saturday.

8:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Tracy Nelson

Tracy Nelson has had a storied career and started out in band called Mother Earth. She’s sung some country-rock and a whole lot of blues. She also wrote one of my all-time favorite Linda Ronstadt tunes, Down So Low. We put Tracy Nelson in the spotlight tonight.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a good day to tune us in, but we say that every day. We’re totally free 24/7 with no strings and no surprises. We do not accept commercial advertising, so we actually have no money to spend on advertising. So, if you tune us in and you like what we do here, please share with your friends!
