Well, Shit Fire & Save Matches! It’s Another Tuesday Bluesday With ‘The Best of Chicago Blues’ Kicking Things Off, April 19, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got a great bluesy line-up for you today and we start things off with music from The Windy City! Later, it’s a trip to Bluesiana!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

We have a great playlist here that’s in line for an upgrade. In the meantime, you’ll hear Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulsom, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Magic Slim, Son Seals, and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Common Sense by John Prine

Today we have the second airing of this week’s Album of The Week selection by the late, great (and I do mean great) John Prine.

7:00 p.m. Dr. John, Art Blakeley, and David “Fathead” Newman: Down in Bluesiana

Three masters in session and caught on tape here. We take a trip to Bluesiana to close out today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming. All aboard!

Come on, blues lovers! Tune us in. You know you want to. We’re 24/7 unsullied by commercial advertising and chatty D.J.’s who like the sound of their own voice. And, oh, did I mention that we’re totally free? No credit card or personal information required. Do it.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Extended Blues Playlist, and John Mayall’s Album of the Week, March 22, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here and all of our programming on this fine sunny day is devoted to da blues!

We have five hours of uninterrupted blues music for you beginning at 11:00 a.m. EST!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

Time for our monthly trip down what I like to call Blues Alley with our great extended playlist. You’ll hear the old and newer blues artists here, as well as those who pay homage to the blues, including Delbert McClinton, B. B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Janis Joplin, The Yardbirds, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Allman Brothers Band, Elmore James, Koko Taylor, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Long John Baldry, The Robert Cray Band, Howlin’ Wolf, Marcia Ball, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, James Cotton, Buddy Guy and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Sun Is Shining Down by John Mayall

What better way to follow up five hours of uninterrupted blues than with our new Album of The Week by John Mayall (along with some of his friends). He may have retired from the road in his 80th year, but we’re sure glad he’s still making music.

If you are into The Blues, this is definitely the place to be on a Tuesday. We are in the process of adding new blues music as we move ahead into spring and summer. Join us. It surely isn’t going to cost you anything. This morning, we’ve got Chile, Germany, the UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Brazil, Israel, Faroe Islands, Australia, and Austria tuned in. Get with it.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We Celebrate The Blues and Women’s Week Together, March 8, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Yes, it’s Tuesday Bluesday and today we manage to deliver the blues and continue our tribute to the women of music quite handily, I must say!

We’ve got The Best of Chicago Blues on tap this morning!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

Yeah, this one is scheduled for an upgrade in the near future, but it’s still pretty damned good. You’ll hear Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Willie Dixon, Koko Taylor, Howlin’ Wolf, Magic Slim, Son Seals, Lonnie Brooks, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, and more! My friend Dave loves the Chicago Blues. He tunes it in every time.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Home Plate by Bonnie Raitt

It’s perfect that this is our album of the week. Call it serendipity. Although Bonnie Raitt refuses to be pigeon-holed into one specific style of music and has expanded her repertoire over her long career, she is still a blues artist at heart and every song she makes has that blues aura about it. This album delivers on that. And did I mention that she plays that slide guitar like she was practicing in the womb?

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Marcia Ball

Here we have another great female blues artist who has been at it for nearly half a century. Born in Orange, Texas and raised in Vinton, Louisiana, she’s more than qualified to sing the blues. USA Today once described Marcia Ball as “a sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist… where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet.” If you don’t know her by now, perhaps this is an excellent time to get to know her.

Every Tuesday is a blues day here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we are always on the hunt for great blues music to add to our repertoire. Join listeners today from Canada, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, the UK, and points beyond. We’re totally free 24/7. The music never stops.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With ‘The Best of Chicago Blues’ and Live Buddy Guy With Stevie Ray Vaughan Later, January 25, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists everywhere! We’ve got some great blues lined up for you today, along with the second airing of our Album of The Week.

We’ve got nearly three hours of great Chicago Blues opening the programming today!

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

This one is destined to become an EP, no doubt, as we build our Chicago blues library. Right now, it’s nearly three hours of great blues with Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Willie Dixon, Koko Taylor, Howlin’ Wolf, Magic Slim, Son Seals, Lonnie Brooks, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan

The second airing of Bob Dylan’s brilliant Blood On The Tracks, his fifteenth studio album, was released January 20, 1975, on Columbia. The album is home to what is undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite Dylan songs, Tangled Up In Blue.

7:00 p.m. Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Lone Star Cafe, New York City, April 14, 1986 NEW!

Here we have a brand new entry to our blues collection, with two blues guitar masters. This is undoubtedly unbridled electric blues here. These two would play together several times. Another notable show as in 1989 at Buddy Guy’s Blues Legends club. We’re working on that one also.

If you’re a lover of the blues, Tuesday is your day here in The Mermaid Lounge, where two of the programs are always dedicated to the blues. Before, in between, and after, we give you wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid in charge. Just do it. It’s free.

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

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

We’re back with five hours of uninterrupted blues music for your listening pleasure. You’ll hear B.B.

J. Cale, Koko Taylor, Long John Baldry, Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Susan Tedeschi, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Marcia Ball, Bonnie Raitt, and more!

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.

If It’s Tuesday, It Must Be Bluesday! Today We Have Our Looooong Blues EP and Our Album of The Week, December 14, 2021

Cale, Long John Baldry, Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, Johnny Winter, Tracy Nelson and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Brainwashed by George Harrison

George’s twelfth and final studio album was brought to fruition lovingly by his son, Dhani, and Jeff Lynne, leader of Electric Light Orchestra and George’s mate in The Traveling Wilburys. It was finally released just about a year after his death. It’s a great listen, and some propose it’s his best album. Tune it in.

Another day in paradise, as they say. Listen, a lot of people are working from home these days. In between those obligatory phone calls, you could be listening to some of the greatest music on the planet. You know, like right here. Totally free 24/7, no commercials, and no strings. What else do you want?
