Good Morning to all! It’s Thursday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got new music from the Jerry Garcia Band today, along with the handiwork of some of the best guitarists in music!
Here’s Thursday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Badass Guitarists, Volume One: Various Artists
Today we begin with those badasses on guitar. You’ll hear the handiwork of Bonnie Raitt, Dickie Betts, Mike Campbell, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Fogerty, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Lowell George, Steve Winwood, Joe Perry, and many more.
3:00 p.m. The Jerry Garcia Band Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, Massachusetts, December 2, 1977 NEW!
The Jerry Garcia Band makes its first appearance here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio in a live performance from my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts. You can bet it will not be the last!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hotcakes by Carly Simon
Once again, allow me to reiterate that this is one of the best albums ever made, and certainly my favorite by Carly Simon. Recorded while she was pregnant with her first child, it resulted in two hits: Mockingbird and Haven’t Got Time For The Pain. But personally, I think the best song on the album is Forever My Love.
Here we are again, telling you to tune us in. We’re not for profit radio. Seriously. And we ask you for no credit cards or personal information. Sound crazy? What can I tell you.
I don’t know if I’m alone in this phenomenon, but sometimes I hear Emmylou Harris and say, “Wow, I forgot that one because nobody ever plays it!” Well, we play them here, and we’re giving them to you today.
2:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Absolutely the Animals!
The Animals have been around since the early sixties, and they are one badass British rhythm & blues band. The band was formed in Newcastle upon Tyne, but moved to London when they finally took hold in 1964. Eric Burdon is a favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge.
7:00 p.m. John Fogerty’s 50-Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, June 20, 2019 NEW!
In 2019, John Fogerty celebrated Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 50-year anniversary of their appearance at Woodstock (the original, of course) with an appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheater, one of the most beautiful of all concert venues on the planet. We love both John Fogerty and Creedence here in The Mermaid Lounge. Enjoy!
It’s Monday. Give yourself a break. Pull up a tab and click the link below. That’s really all it takes.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is a spectacular line-up today starting right off the bat, as my grandmother would say. And it includes yet another amazing Ronstadt playlist.
Here’s Friday’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival
Also known as Creedence or CCR. Four guys from the Bay area who sounded like they just rumbled out of a Lousiana swamp. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are the favorite American band around these parts. Creedence runs a hot and strong second.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Melody of Death FINAL AIRING!
This is the final airing of The Melody of Death. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode available.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: Forgotten Gems, Rarities, Outtakes, Bootlegs NEW!
This is a great playlist of stuff that may never have been heard before by most radio listeners. Some may have been forgotten. Some have never existed in recorded form. Enjoy this playlist.
The songs are already up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom!
This would be a most excellent day to make #BecomeUngovernable Radio your radio station of choice. It’s free. Totally. Every day and in every way. Completely built OUTSIDE the system. I promise.
