We’re Going Under The Influence, Airing Our Album of The Week, and Offering Up New Live Lukas Nelson & POTR on This Thursday, April 29, 2021

Good Morning, Folks! As I return to retail hell on this fine day (and hopefully not for long), we’ve got some great programming coming up in my absence. The Music Mermaid will handle the details.

We have Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real up in the early evening.

Here’s today’s line-up:

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

We’ve all done it. Some of us do it every day. Functioning under the influence, that is. This great multi-artist playlist features Glenn Frey, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Donovan. The Traveling Wilburys, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, Neil Young, The Temptations, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Damn The Torpedoes! by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

We’re winding down on our Album of The Week. We’ll have one more airing of this fantastic album on Saturday. When you roll your butts out of bed on Sunday, there will be a new selection. So, get in on this now! The Heartbreakers’ breakout album for sure. And the rest, as they say, is history.

7:00 p.m. Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real Live at The Boathouse, Newport News, Virginia, June 14, 2018 NEW!

This is a great little band, and you know it’s great when a legend like Neil Young takes them on the road with him. They can stand on their own, however, and this is your chance to see that for yourself.

Tune us in, people. We’re not-for-profit. We accept no advertising and we sure don’t employ long-winded DJ’s. The Music Mermaid is silent but deadly in her selections.

We Kick Off March in The Mermaid Lounge With Some ‘Live’ Bonnie Raitt, Music About Luck (Good, Bad, and Dumb), and Our Psychedelic Express Playlist, on Monday, March 1, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Well, they say “Beware the Ides of March,” so it’s only fitting that we kick off the month with our playlist about luck (all kinds). But it doesn’t end there. We have some live Bonnie Raitt and a little psychedelic music history.

Bonnie Raitt at the Rainbow Room in Philly is today’s live music offering.

Here’s today’s musical programming:

11:00 a.m. Bonnie Raitt, Live at The Rainbow Room, Philadelphia, PA, February 22, 1972

There’s nothing like seeing Bonnie Raitt in a small venue. One of my favorite places in the Boston area was Jonathan Swifts in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was a Friday night routine for my friends and I, and I saw Bonnie Raitt there one time. Enjoy this treat.

3:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck, Various Artists

Luck. Some people believe in it. Some don’t. Some create their own luck. But no matter, because there are plenty of songs about it, from Cream, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Jethro Tull, Loggins & Messina, Billy Joel, Fats Domino, Bob Dylan, Steve Winwood, The Beatles, and others. You’ll hear them today.

7:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

Did you know that scientists are exploring the use of psychedelics to treat mental illness? We used to do our own kind of research on psychedelics back in the day. So did a lot of famous musicians, and you’ll hear The Beatles, Vanilla Fudge, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, They Byrds, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Blues Image and more!
