Sunday Gives Us ‘Blood On The Tracks’ As Our New Album of The Week, and The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two EP, January 23, 2022

Good Morning, Weekenders! Maybe you’re sleeping in; maybe not. But we never actually sleep here in The Mermaid Lounge. We blast out music on a global basis 24/7!

Mid-afternoon brings a little under five hours of the best of the mid-to-late sixties!

Here’s your musical landscape for today:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan NEW!

Dylan is another one of those guys who gives me fits. It’s difficult, if not impossible, for me to pick a favorite album. Is it Desire? Is it Blood On The Tracks? Is it Nashville Skyline? I don’t know. It varies with my musical mood, I guess. I have the same problem with The Heartbreakers and The Beatles.

This is Bob Dylan’s 15th studio album, released on January 20. 1975, so we honor this album very close to it’s 47th anniversary, written at a time when there was a lot of stress in Dylan’s personal life. Jakob Dylan once described this album as “my parents talking,” but his father insists it’s not autobiographical. Either way, this album logged in at no. 16 on Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Albums of All Time. By 2004, it has risen to no. 9. It reached no. 1 on The Billboard 200 Chart, and no. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. Give it a listen. It is undoubtedly one of Dylan’s very best.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists

The Sixties Rotations (volumes 1 & 2) were the very first playlists we ever put together for this station. They have both expanded to EP’s at this stage of the game, and today we give you the one that focuses on the mid-to-late sixties. You’ll hear The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Simon & Garfunkel, the Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Janis Joplin, The Four Tops, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Four Tops, Vanilla Fudge, Sly & The Family Stone, The Zombies, The Doors, The Chambers Brothers, The Animals, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Procol Harum, The Electric Prunes, Them, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, The Mamas & The Papas, and many more!

It is indeed a day of rest. And what could be better than joining your fellow global listeners on such a day? You don’t have to wait for programming. We run on wide Open Stream 24/7, so our button is never in the ‘off’ position. All you really have to do is click the button below. Go ahead. See for yourself.

Tune in, Turn On, and Drop Out With ‘The Psychedelic Express’ EP, Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later On, Saturday, January 22, 2022

Good Morning, Psychedelic Music Lovers! One of my favorite rock genres is in the limelight today. We’ve also got the final airing of Raising Sand, and LIVE DEAD! later tonight.

The Beatles fully embraced the psychedelic music sound, but they are just one of the bands you’ll hear today!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

This is, without a doubt, one of our favorite EPs here in The Mermaid Lounge. As I recall, we had a great time expanding this from its initial version. You’ll hear Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Beatles, The Electric Prunes, The Animals, Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blues Image, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Cream, The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Dr. John, Procol Harum, Grateful Dead, The Velvet Underground, Donovan, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Raising Sand by Alison Krauss & Robert Plant FINAL AIRING!

We say farewell to this great album this evening. Tomorrow morning when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection for your listening pleasure.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Coliseum, New Haven, CT, May 5, 1977 NEW!

We have another great soundboard recording from the ultimate road warriors here, and this time with their Wall of Sound. This is a new entry to our LIVE DEAD! series, and we hope you enjoy it.

Before, in between, and after it’s wide Open Stream. We are never off the air; we run 24/7 uninterrupted by commercial advertising or endlessly talking DJ’s. This is a labor of love, and we’re proud of the work we do here in The Mermaid Lounge. Tune us in.

What Better Way to Start Your Weekend Than ‘Under The Influence’ With Neil Young & LIVE DEAD? Saturday, January 15, 2022

Good Morning, Audiophiles! We begin another weekend (well, you do; I’ve got one more day of servitude) with a great EP about being under the influence, our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! later.

We’ve got another great episode of LIVE DEAD! coming up later tonight!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Come on. Fess up. We’ve all been under the influence at one time or another, and with both legal and illegal substances. Don’t deny it. Musicians rarely deny it. In fact, they sing about it. You’ll hear from The Doors, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Arlo Guthrie, The Byrds, Donovan, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Eric Burdon & War, The Fraternity of Man, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Janis Joplin, Neil Young and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Barn by Neil Young & Crazy Horse FINAL AIRING!

We warned you that it was coming, and it’s here. This will be the final airing of Neil Young’s 41st album, Barn, with his go-to band, Crazy Horse. This marks their 14th album together. Tune it in because tomorrow there’ll be a brand new album when you wake up.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City, NJ, August 6, 1974 NEW!

Another new soundboard recording from the ultimate road warriors for The Deadheads. This one is from Roosevelt Stadium, with over four hours of LIVE DEAD! music to close out your night!

Before, in between, and after our programming you’ll be treated to wide Open Stream courtesy of our Music Mermaid. As you should well know by now, she has impeccable taste in music. She’s a keeper.

Sunday Brings a Brand New Album of The Week, Our Original Sixties EP, and Plenty of Wide Open Stream, January 2, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got our Original Sixties EP to bring you through the afternoon and early evening, plus a brand new Album of The Week from Yusuf Islam, also known as the great Cat Stevens!

We bring you the music that inspired the station and the very first playlist we ever built!

Here’s Sunday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Teaser and the Firecat by Cat Stevens (also known as Yusuf Islam) NEW!

This is one of the Cat’s best albums and is undoubtedly one of my favorite albums of all time. I recently read a review of the album where the author stated that Cat Stevens was a “pop” artist at heart. It’s funny how music is in the ears of the beholder. I’ve always viewed Cat Stevens as a folk-rock musician. Labels do not matter, at the end of the day. It’s what you like. On a more somber note, I remember the dark days after the 9-11 attacks, and Cat Stevens being denied entry into the United States because he had converted to Islam. I have a difficult time imagining Cat Stevens as a terrorist. Seriously.

3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

This was the very first playlist we ever built back in June of 2017, when we started this up and opened our Facebook page. You’ll hear The Monkees, Sonny & Cher, Mary Wells, Dusty Springfield, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Drifters, The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, Buddy Holly, Petula Clark, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Band, The Yardbirds, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Searchers, Donovan, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Jefferson Airplane, Johnny Rivers, and more!

Before, in between, and after, we’ve got that great wide Open Stream where we put you in the capable hands of the Music Mermaid. As you well know, she has impeccable taste in music, and there are days when she simply feels like picking up a playlist or two. Give a listen and see for yourself.

Saturday is Best Experienced ‘Under the Influence,’ Along With Our Final Airing of the AOW, and LIVE DEAD Later, December 18, 2021

Good Morning, Head Trippers! We begin our day at mid-day today with our multi-artist Under The Influence EP, then move along to our weekend constitution from there.

We begin our musical journey today with Under The Influence at high noon.

Here’s your Saurday line-up:

12:00 p.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

This was originally a smaller playlist, but it had plenty of material for an EP, and so it was done. Whether your choice is legal or not, we’ve pretty much all been there at one time or another. Some of us remember the days fondly and will enjoy hearing The Doors, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Donovan, Eric Clapton, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Bob Dylan, Eric Burdon & War, The Fraternity of Man, Jefferson Airplane, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Brainwashed by George Harrison FINAL AIRING!

Today we bid a fond farewell to George Harrison’s twelfth and final album, an album that was brought to you lovingly by his son Dhani, and Jeff Lynne of ELO, and George’s bandmate in The Traveling Wilburys. Tomorrow, there will be a brand new selection when you roll out of bed.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Olde Renaissance Faire Grounds, Veneta, Oregon, August 27, 1972 NEW!

Another new live extravaganza from the consummate road warriors. I’m not sure how many people listen to the Dead’s studio stuff (I do), but I know far more people prefer them live. They are the world’s ultimate jam band for a reason. This performance is no exception.

Hey, it’s Saturday. Some of us are still in retail bondage, but many are not. What better time to make this your ‘go-to’ radio station? After all, it’s totally free of both commercials and overly-talkative DJs who like the sound of their own voices. All you need is a tab and an index finger. No lie.

It May Be Monday, But We’re Rockin’ With The Sixties and The All-Girl Revue 3, December 6, 2021

Good Morning, Audiophiles! It’s another Monday here on the planet earth, but we have your musical needs covered fully today. I promise.

We interrupted our regular programming yesterday for the Tom Petty Ph.D. Special, so today you’re treated to The Original Sixties bash!

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

We did switch gears yesterday to celebrate Tom Petty’s honorary doctorate, so we are running yesterday’s EP today! And it’s always good to start out the work week with the music that inspired this station. You’ll hear The Beatles, Sonny & Cher, Mary Wells, Dusty Springfield, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Drifters, The Monkees, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, Petula Clark, Buddy Holly, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Band, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, The Yardbirds, The Searchers, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Bob Dylan, and many more! It’s totally uninterrupted!

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume Three: Various Artists

We haven’t cued this one up for a while, so it’s a treat for me too since I am home and hanging in The Mermaid Lounge on Mondays! You’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Valerie Carter, Phoebe Snow, Judy Collins, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Wendy Waldman, Melanie, Susan Tedeschi, Aretha Franklin, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, and more!

Another live one from the vault, as they say. This soundboard recording of The Dead is from 1971 at the Felt Forum in New York.

Etta James’ career began the year I was born, in 1954. Right up through 2012, her big, earthy voice has interpreted many genres, including R & B/soul, the blues, gospel, jazz, and rock n’ roll. She gained fame with several hits, including Tell Mama, At Last, and I’d Rather Go Blind. She won six Grammy awards, and 17 blues music awards, and she is a resident of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (1993), The Blues Hall of Fame (2001), and Grammy Hall of Fame (1999). Learn more about Etta James here.

There have been many players in the evolution of what has come to be known as country-rock. This 1969 release, the first from The Flying Burrito Brothers, continued the work of two of the most notable musicians in this process, Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, both veterans of The Byrds (who were also players).
