It’s Our Official ‘Summertime’ Kick-off With a Brand New Playlist, Badfinger at the BBC, and Joni In The Spotlight, Monday, June 27, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We hope we can brighten your work-week start today with some great music. It’s summertime, and we’ve got some brand new music for you.

We officially kick off summer with a brand new playlist today!

Here’s your Monday programming:

11:00 a.m. Summertime: Various Artists NEW!

This is the beginning of a week where we feature some new music. We start here with our new ‘Summertime’ playlist. We’ve got songs with the word summer, summertime, and variations thereof in the title but, if you listen closely, you’ll hear some surf music in there as well. You’ll hear from Paul McCartney, Electric Light Orchestra, Eddie Cochran, Joni Mitchell, Sly & The Family Stone, Poco, The Blue Stingrays, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Jimmy Cliff, Joan Baez, Foo Fighters, Donovan, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Nina Simone, John Prine, Johnny Rivers, Gary Hoey, The Desert Rose Band, Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, The Stone Poneys, Chrissie Hynde, Bob Dylan, The Surfaris, Nanci Griffith, and more!

4:00 p.m. Badfinger: Live at The BBC Studios, 1972-1973

Today’s live music offering is Badfinger, a true power pop band that made some great music in its time. Today we’ve got them live at BBC Studios in London recorded in 1972 and 1973. Undoubtedly the best signing ever by Apple Records.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Joni Mitchell

It’s been a spell since we featured Joni Mitchell In the Spotlight, so we’re remedying that little miscue today. She’s kind of the sound of summer in a way. We’ve always loved Joni’s music here in The Mermaid Lounge. She is one of the most brilliant singer-songwriters on the planet.

Come on. It’s Monday. And we all know Monday’s suck. I’ve been sick with COVID for a second time here and I return to retail hell myself tomorrow, so why not join me today in kicking back and enjoying some great tunes.

Today We’ve Got Music About the Sun & Moon, Valerie Carter With Our AOW, and ‘Live’ Bob Marley Later, Thursday, May 5, 2022

We start our musical journey with songs about the sun and moon!

Here’s your musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. Under the Sun & Moon: Various Artists

It’s true. Not all of our playlists are EP’s! Take for example, this one. We’ve got a couple of hours of songs that talk about the sun and moon in the title, lyrics, or both. You’ll hear Cat Stevens, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimmy Cliff, Linda Ronstadt, Van Morrison, Bill Withers, Rosanne Cash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Traveling Wilburys,, Norah Jones, Nina Simone, Little Feat, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Foo Fighters, The Animals, The Eagles, Gordon Lightfoot, Shawn Colvin, Tom Rush, Jonathan Edwards, Maria Muldaur and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Lost Tapes, Volume Two by Valerie Carter

Get on it, people. This is the next-to-last airing of this great new album. The final airing will be sometime on Saturday. On Sunday, we’ll have a new selection coming your way.

7:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Roxy, West Hollywood, CA, March 26, 1976

Bob Marley & The Wailers appeared at The Roxy on this date as part of their Rastaman Vibration Tour. This is a great show by the band that made Reggae accessible to us all. Tune it in.

Yes, folks, another great day of music on tap. Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid. We’re on 24/7 non-stop, free-of-charge and with no commercial interruptions for your listening pleasure.

We Close Out The Week With The #BecomeUngovernable House EP and Some True Confessions, Friday, October 29, 2021

Good Morning, Pettyologists! The month is coming to a close quickly and we’ve got just a couple of more things to squeeze in, one of them coming this evening. Read on!

We’ve got Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on The True Confessions Tour later

Here’s your Friday line-up:

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

This is one of our favorites here. It started small and became an EP a little over a month ago. We’ve got some great music lined up over the afternoon hours coming from this excellent multi-artist long player.

7:00 p.m. Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Cal Expo Amphitheatre, Sacramento, CA, June 12, 1986

We’ve got a tour where Petty and his mates were not necessarily the headliners, but that didn’t seem to matter to either them or the audience. This is where the seeds were planted for a great musical match and where Mike Campbell said that the band truly learned how to improvise on stage. He credited Dylan with that lesson. This is one of those “don’t miss” moments.

Come on, folks. What the hell are you waiting for? Your friends from around the planet are out there right now listening to us and you need to find a way to join them. Hey, this isn’t rocket science. It’s Internet radio.

Jimmy Cliff, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real In the Spotlight, Our “Live” Dead, and the Final Airing of The Doors, Saturday, March 7, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s the damned weekend, and we’ve got a great line-up for today, including two new playlists!

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

Here’s Saturday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Music From the Movie The Harder They Come, Jimmy Cliff & Friends

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: The Doors, by The Doors

The final airing of The Doors, probably the most important album to the psychedelic music movement. Tomorrow, we feature a brand new album.

5:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real     NEW!

Yeah, it’s Willie’s boy, and this is one sweet band. Promise of the Real is also Neil Young’s new road band. Don’t miss this.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead: The Grateful Dead, Europe ’72, Newcastle (April 11, 1972)   NEW!

We continue on with the Europe ’72 tour this week. As I’ve said, the beauty of The Dead is that no two concerts ever sound the same…or even have the same songs!

Tune us in while you clean the house, or whatever you do when you’re not slaving for the man (or the woman).
