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 Big, Bad Blues EP and ‘Live’ Stevie Ray Vaughan Later; In Between, It’s Our AOW, August 23, 2022

Happy Tuesday Bluesday, people! We’ve got a great musical lineup today here in The Mermaid Lounge that begins with our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP!

Here’s today’s musical lineup:

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

Here we have our all-encompassing blues extravaganza where you will hear B. B. King, Little Walter, Delbert McClinton, 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, J. J. Cale, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, James Cotton, Koko Taylor, The Butterfield Blues Band, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Allman, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson, Buddy Guy and more!

4:30 p.m. Album of The Week: The Union by Elton John & Leon Russell

In between our blues features today, we squeeze in our second airing of our Album of The Week by Elton John and Leon Russell, released in 2010.

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.

7:00 p.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, October 14, 1966 NEW!

We go back in the Wayback Machine for this gem. We have some vintage Paul Butterfield from 1966. A legendary blues band in a legendary venue for sure.

Got the blues? Well, get them here. The blues of the best kind, of course. We’re totally free every single day of the week, not just when we’re doing a “membership” drive. The price of membership here is using your tab and the button below. Your money is no good here.

Welcome to Total Blues Tuesday With Our EP and Our Album Of The Week, January 18, 2022

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

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

The second airing of this great blues-rock collaboration by two artists who, in some folks’ eyes, are an unlikely pairing. And I have to say I was surprised when this first came out. But it works. The chemistry is there, and this is one fine album.

If you’re a blues lover, this is your day. Before, in between, and after we have all that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She is our guiding light here in the Lounge, and we treat her with reverence. Just push the button below for da blues.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, and J. Geils With Our Album of The Week, March 30, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists, we are here in The Mermaid Lounge with your Tuesday Bluesday offering, and even the J. Geils Band shoehorns in nicely on this day!

We begin this Tuesday Bluesday with Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live From The Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago, November 22, 1981

Most of the British Invasion bands were steeped in the blues and R & B, and this is certainly true of Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones. Today we have a great union live from the famed Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago between The Stones and Muddy Waters.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Love Stinks by The J. Geils Band

Certainly my favorite J. Geils album out of the many they gave us. In my humble opinion, they were the true bad boys of Boston, no matter what anyone else tells you.

7:00 p.m. John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live at The BBC (1965-1967)

This excellent compilation features all of the Bluesbreakers’ live BBC performances plus the the “Old Grey Whistle Test” performances.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a good day to tune us in, no doubt about it. But then again, every day is because we’re totally free and require absolutely no personal information at any time.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With John Mayall, Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck; The Dirty Knobs Are Back With Our AOW, December 1, 2020

Good Morning, and welcome to December. The Shadow starts on Wednesday, but today we’ve got some Tuesday Bluesday music and Three-in-a Row’s lined up.

John Mayall is known as the Godfather of British Blues for a reason.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live at The BBC (1965-1967)

Today we’ve got all the Bluesbreakers recordings done for the BBC between 1965 and 1967. We are always on the hunt for new music. We’ve got places to go that I’m not even sure how we’ve found, but we’re back on the hunt for some authentic blues again. In the meantime, there’s a reason why John Mayall is known as the Godfather of British Blues. You’ll see.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wreckless Abandon by The Dirty Knobs

A great debut album worth the wait in the midst of this pestilence. It is in today’s pipeline and also now in our general rotation.

7:00 p.m. Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Live at The Country Club, Reseda, CA, October 20, 1987

This is a short little soundboard interlude here with Mick Jagger and Jeff Beck. This was originally a session to record a promo; what ensues here is what happened in between takes, apparently. There is reportedly a longer version of this out there somewhere. I’m determined to find it. In the meantime, enjoy this one.

The rest of the day is Open Stream with some Three-in-a-Rows tossed in for good measure. Enjoy your day!

We Feature Wildflowers’ Home Demos, Dusty Springfield In The Spotlight, and Tuesday Bluesday, October 20, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve cooked up another great batch of programming today for y’all. We move forward on the new Wildflowers project, give you some blue-eyed soul with Dusty Springfield, and it’s also Tuesday Bluesday!

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty NEW!

Today’s Airing: Wildflowers Home Demos

I labeled this ‘Home Demos’ because they are called Home Recordings in the official package. I think it’s important that people understand that these were supposed to be demos. Many were next to being release-worthy. This is basically Tom Petty playing all the instruments, singing, and recording.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Dusty Springfield

Here’s a little blue-eyed soul for you. Dusty is undoubtedly one of the stars here in The Mermaid Lounge. And totally underrated overall.

7:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday! John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live at The BBC

Although John Mayall never achieved commercial success, he’s one of the most respected British bluesmen in the business. Even now his followers continue to grow. This compilation was released in 2007, but it encompasses all 12 of the BBC sessions recorded between 1965-1967, as well as two performances recorded on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1975. Enjoy!

Yeah, people. We’re going to say it again. We run 24/7 without interruption, no advertising, no endless DJ chatter, no politicians, no bullshit. And we’re free. There’s no hidden charges, no credit card required, and no personal information requested. Are we missing something?

The Summer of Love is in Charge Today With The Doors, John Mayall, and a Great Little Album That Goes Unnoticed, Thursday, August 20, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Somehow, this 1967 programming just kind of fell in my lap very late last night. Sometimes, without trying, things just kind of fall together!

Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live in 1967

If you follow this station and read this blog (something you should all be doing, by the way), you know we’re into music in all forms. Some of the stuff is fan recorded, and that’s just fine with us. This particular entry is short on quality, but big on blues history. After Clapton left the band, the void was filled by Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. They would go on to form Fleetwood Mac which, by the way, started with Peter Green on vocals and was an actual blues band. Get past the fan-recorded aspect of this and enjoy. By the way, if you listen to Ye, this is probably not your venue.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors

The second Doors release of the Summer of Love. As I have said previously, it did not disappoint after their fantastic debut, The Doors.

7:00 p.m.    The Best of The Summer of Love! Evergreen, Volume 2 by The Stone Poneys   NEW!

Speaking of two releases in one year, The Stone Poneys also accomplished that feat in 1967, with this release coming just five months after their debut. Nobody talks about this in ‘Summer of Love’ terms, but this was released right in the heart of it, June 1967. Unlike their debut album, Linda Ronstadt was prominently featured on vocals. Not surprisingly, it would be the most successful of their three releases before she exploded onto the music scene.

Linda Ronstadt left Tucson for L.A. with Bobby Kimmel (guitarist) to make music. They hooked up with a guy named Kenny Edwards, who would later be a very important cog in her back-up band. This is a portrait of Linda Ronstadt before we knew her, in a more trippy vein. Great stuff.

Good day to become a fan, people. I cannot emphasize this more: All you need is a browser and a tab. The rest is a breeze. No money. No credit card required. No personal information requested. Just free music. No shit. No bullshit. No lie.

It’s Clapton at Madison Square Garden, Paul Simon in The Spotlight, and Lucinda Williams’ New Album on Thursday, July 2, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.

Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.

7:00 p.m.    Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017  NEW!

Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.

Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.
