It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Live Music From the B.B. King Blues Band, Johnny Winter In The Spotlight and Our AOW, May 31, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! What better way to close out the month than on a Tuesday Bluesday? The only thing possibly better is that we also have live B.B. King!

Today we’ve got B.B. King and his blues band live from Rotterdam!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The B.B. King Blues Band Live at The North Sea Jazz Festival, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, October 7, 1987 NEW!

We’ve got some brand new ‘live’ music today from the master…and, of course, his famous sidekick, Lucille. Settle in for a couple of hours of great blues.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Forget About It by Alison Krauss

We take a short break in the blues proceedings for the second airing of Alison Krauss’ 1999 release here, and it’s a good one.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Winter

The blues side of the great Winter brothers. Johnny Winter was not only a great solo artist, but his guitar work was in demand by some of the greatest, including Muddy Waters. Today we put him alone In the Spotlight.

Let’s go kids! We’ve actually got The Netherlands already on board this morning, along with Spain, Portugal, Greece, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Russian Federation, Brazil, and points beyond. Join your friends. We’re free. We’re broadcasting 24/7. And we never ask for a “subscription.”

We Keep It Simple on Tuesday Bluesday With Our Uninterrupted Blues Extravaganza and Bobbie Gentry With Our AOW Later, May 24, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists. Our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP is back, and it’s our major musical programming feature of the day. Get on it.

Here’s your programming:

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

It’s just over five hours of uninterrupted blues music from B. B. King (and his sidekick, Lucille), Delbert McClinton, 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, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J.J.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry

This is the second airing of this week’s AOW, Bobbie Gentry’s ambitious concept album about life growing up in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. In truth, Bobbie Gentry didn’t want to sing. She wanted to write songs for other people and remain in the background. Her songwriting prowess is fully on show here, as is her sultry, bluesy voice.

We’ve got Chile, the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and many points beyond already tuned in this morning. Why not join them?

Johnny Winter is one of the finest electric bluesmen on the planet. He’s also just a great blues singer. You know a guy is great when the greats want to work with him. Muddy Waters earned Grammys for his work with Winter. This guy’s the real deal.

11:00 a.m. Joni Mitchell Live at the Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara, CA, September 9, 1979

In 1979, Joni Mitchell took to the road on her Shadows & Light Tour, and she brought her dream band along with her: Jaco Pastorius on Bass, Pat Metheny on Lead Guitar, Don Alias on Drums, Lyle Mays on Keys, and Michael Brecker on Sax. The result was simply sublime.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Sun Is Shining Down by John Mayall

This is the next-to-last airing of this week’s great Album of The Week by the Godfather of British Blues. Saturday will be your final opportunity to hear it here. We’ll have a new selection by Sunday when you roll out of bed.

7:00 p.m. Everybody But Bob: Various Artists

The First Tuesday Bluesday of the Year is Upon Us and We’ve Got Johnny Winter and a Blues Trifecta Afternoon, January 4, 2022

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Winter NEW!

John Dawson Winter III is one of our favorite bluesmen here in The Mermaid Lounge. He’s got his own high-energy blues-rock style. Although not a pure bluesman, Johnny Winter was sought out by other bluesmen and jammed with many, including Muddy Waters, Roy Head and the Traits, Mike Bloomfield, Willie Dixon, and Big Walter Horton. Winter was groundbreaking in many ways and was recognized as one of the best guitarists in the business. You can learn more about him right here. Today, we kick off Tuesday Bluesday by putting him In the Spotlight.

We’re On The Downslide Toward The Weekend, and We’ve Got a Brand New Bob Dylan Playlist With a Twist, Thursday, November 11, 2021

Good Morning, Dylanologists! This one came to me as I was falling askeep one night. I carry a little notebook wherever I got and I wrote it down. A few months later, I actually had time to pull it together in some fashion, although it will be one of those already o n my “update” list.

Bob Dylan and his friends on stage at the 30th Anniversary Tour

Here’s today’s programming:

In this playlist, we’re giving you Bob Dylan’s music sung by others who have drawn inspiration from him. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Tracy Nelson, Jimi Hendrix, Mudcrutch, Leon Russell, Peter, Paul & Mary, Johnny Winter, Maria Muldaur, Joan Baez, The Byrds, The Band, Manfred Mann, Waylon Jennings, Bonnie Raitt, Richie Havens, Fairport Convention, George Harrison, Chrissie Hynde and more!

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformation

We’re on Part 2 of our mini Beatlefest tonight. These are some great years, from Rubber Soul through Magical Mystery Tour. The Beatles embraced psychedelic music full on during this time. They also made music magic as they pushed the boundaries of their craft with the support of the fifth Beatle, Sir George Martin. Enjoy. I know I will.

Here we are again with the many reasons you should consider turning us on (as the Beatles would say). Come on. Look. It doesn’t cost you a cent. All you need is a new browser tab and the ability to work a keyboard. No credit card. No personal information. No wasting time. Get on it.
