Chase Your Monday Blues With Music From Laurel Canyon and Creedence Clearwater Revival In the Spotlight, November 29, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! The problem with Mondays is that the just keep coming back. But nevertheless, we’ve go you covered musically. It’ll make you smile.

We’ve got all the musical legends from Laurel Canyon up to start your day!

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

This great EP was expanded because Laurel Canyon was a musical hub of creativity for two generations of musicians, the sixties and early seventies. You’ll hear The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, The Monkees, The Mamas & The Papas, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, CSNY, Neil Young, Stephen Stills & Manassas, John Mayall, The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Canned Heat, The Eagles, J.D.Souther, Carole King, James Taylor, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

Creedence is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge. We think they’re one of the best rock n’ roll bands to strap on some gee-tars. When they first came out, we were convinced they were straight out of a Louisiana bayou. In fact, they are four guys from Berkeley. And they are In the Spotlight here tonight.

Tune us in. We’ve already got Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Russian Federation, Sweden, France, Australia, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, and Mexico on this morning. Some of these guys have been on all night! Switzerland has been tuned in for two days! Either the guy is dead or he really likes the music.

The Women of The Mermaid Lounge Take The Lead Today, and We Intro Our New Album of The Week, Sunday, November 21, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s our monthly extended tribute to the women of music today as we bring you our Ladies Day Out EP. We also intro a great, new album of the week.

These are just some of our favorite women you’ll hear from today!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Greatest Hits by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac NEW!

It’s rare that we choose a Greatest Hits album as our Album of The Week, but there are those moments in music when it must be done. For those who are only familiar with the current iteration of Fleetwood Mac, this is not how they began their career. During the sixties, when the band came to be, it was a British blues-rock band led by a great guitarist named Peter Green. His version of Fleetwood Mac remains our favorite here in the lounge. You can learn more about Peter Green here.

3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

Our Ladies Day Out EP is back to bring you five hours of exceptional music from Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Phoebe Snow, Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin, Irma Thomas, The Supremes, The Ronettes, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Alison Krauss, Maria Muldaur, Wendy Waldman, Marcia Ball, Tracy Nelson, Valerie Carter, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, Carole King, Carly Simon, Etta James, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Stevie Nicks, and more!

It’s a great day to tune us in. Every day is a great day to tune us in. We really mean that. There is no way we can convince you with words. You’re just going to have to try it out. For free. And it will remain totally free if you come back. How’s that?

Saturday Brings Sounds of The Supergroups, The Kinks In the Spotlight, the Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD Later, November 20, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s another one of those crazy music Saturdays here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got some great stuff for you today. Read on for details!

Our jumping off programming point today is an expanded ‘Sounds of the Supergroups’

Here’s your Saturday programming:

11:00 a.m. The Sounds of The Supergroups: Various Artists EXPANDED & UPDATED!

We’ve done some work on this since the last time we aired it. You know, the term ‘Supergroup’ is used a bit too liberally today, but we can’t control that shit except as we define the term. These bands do not come along very often, and they generally aren’t a lifetime deal. They may tour, or they may not. But one thing’s for sure: They have been created by artists who were successful either in other bands or as solo artists. We feel confident that we’re giving your the all-inclusive list.

You will hear Cream, Derek & The Dominos, CSNY, The Traveling Wilburys (the world’s all-in number one supergroup of all time as continually voted by the public), The Highwaymen (Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson), Blind Faith, Supertramp, The Plastic Ono Band, Trio (Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris), andThe Super Super Blues Band (Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley).

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul FINAL AIRING!

It’s sayonara after today’s airing, so get on it. Tomorrow we’ll introduce a brand new choice to you as our Album of The Week.

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

The Muswell Hillbillies are back with their own unique sound and collection of hits that can’t be denied. Somehow, I feel like these guys were always on the cusp of being considered a great band in some people’s minds, but The Kinks were as good as any band in their day and had a kick ass sound all their own.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at West High Auditorium, Anchorage, Alaska, June 21, 1980

This is a repeat performance for us, but this has not been aired for more than a year here. This show is one of three that The Dead played in the 2,000-seat auditorium at West High School in Anchorage back in 1980. Many consider it one of their best live shows.

Saturday is here. The weekend is upon (some of) us. Some of us have one more stint left, and that would be me. But you can be here with us in The Mermaid Lounge enjoying life free of charge.

Begin Your Friday ‘Under the Influence’, and Get In the Groove With Etta James Later This Evening, November 19, 2021

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists UPDATED & EXPANDED

It is with great pleasure that we give you this as our latest extended play offering. We had fun making this one happen. You’ll hear Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, The Beatles, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Temptations, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Burden & War, The Fraternity of Man, and many more as you expand the outer limits of your musical minds.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James

Etta James’ career began the year I was born, in 1954. Right up through 2012, her big, earthy voice has interpreted many genres, including R & B/soul, the blues, gospel, jazz, and rock n’ roll. She gained fame with several hits, including Tell Mama, At Last, and I’d Rather Go Blind. She won six Grammy awards, and 17 blues music awards, and she is a resident of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (1993), The Blues Hall of Fame (2001), and Grammy Hall of Fame (1999). Learn more about Etta James here.

Shall I say it yet again? It is a great day to tune us in. We’re finally as the end of the work week (for some lucky souls) and we’ve got this great new, inspirational extended playlist to share with you. That’s nearly five hours of uninterrupted tales of drugs, drink and rock n’ roll. Hey, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another. This is the most fun you can have without actually doing it.

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:

11:00 a.m. Everybody But Bob: Various Artists NEW!

Bob Dylan has certainly made many friends and admirers in his musical life. The guy is amazing and has left an indelible mark on the music world. Sometimes you don’t realize what he has accomplished until you open up your vault and see the massive collection of works he has produced. We’re doing something new here.

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!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Gilded Palace of Sin by The Flying Burrito Brothers

We’re winding down here. The final airing of this very first Flying Burrito Brothers album will be on Saturday. Get on it while you can, because there’ll be a brand new selection on Sunday.

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.

It’s A Mermaid Lounge Monday With Linda Ronstadt Live in Boston, John Prine In the Spotlight, and Plenty of Music Under the Sun & Moon Later, November 1, 2021

Not only is it the beginning of another work week, but it’s the start of another month. The winter is slowly rolling in, the temps are chilly, but we’ve got just the stuff to keep you warm all winter here in The Mermaid Lounge.

We put John Prine In the Spotlight this afternoon!

Here’s your Monday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, May 14, 1995

This is the infamously great concert with Valerie Carter as the opener and on stage with Linda backing her up during the main event. The good music fairy was shining down that day. It’s not often you get to see two great singers together on the same stage, but I was fortunate on this particular night.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Prine

John Prine was a genuine original, a country-folk singer-songwriter who often used his great wit and introspection to write (sometimes) humorous songs containing elements of protest and social commentary. I was fortunate to see him once during my lifetime (and his), but wish it had been more. We own all of his material here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ll play it for you later today.

7:00 p.m. Under the Sun & Moon: Various Artists

Another of our original playlists here with references to the sun and moon in the title, lyrics, or both. You’ll hear from Tom Rush, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, The Doors, Foo Fighters, The Kinks, The Wallflowers, Donovan, The Traveling Wilburys, and more!

Mondays are difficult at best. You will make your day so much better if you take the time to tune us in. It’s just so damned easy it isn’t funny. Pull up a tab and click the link below. You’ll see. It doesn’t cost you a penny or require any effort on your part beyond that.

It’s Midweek During the Final Week of Tom Petty Month, and We’ve Got Those Echoes From the Canyon Again, Wednesday, October 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’re at midweek again. We’ve got our Laurel Canyon EP going today, along with some Wildflowers action a bit later as part of Tom Petty Month.

Some of the Legends of the Canyon

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

This became an EP a little over a month ago, and it’s one of our favorites. Laurel Canyon was a musical phenomenon of both the 60s and 70s. You will hear The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Canned Heat, The Doors, The Mamas & The Papas, The Monkees, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Carole King, James Taylor, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, CSNY, Neil Young, Stephen Stills & Manassas, John Mayall and many more.

7:00 p.m. Wildflowers & All The Rest: Finding Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Ever wonder how the final songs became the final songs? This is a great playlist from the Wildflowers project released just a little over a year ago. Alternate versions of the final songs that ended up on Wildflowers are a great treat for Petty fans. I never get tired of this stuff.

Its like Open Stream with a Theme. Yeah. That’s what it is. And it’s always uninterrupted by commercials or mouthy DJ’s who overstay their welcome. We’re also free, and we don’t ask you for a damned thing. So, what are you waiting for?

Saturday Brings Our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, Our Final Airing of “Full Moon Fever” by Tom Petty, and LIVE DEAD Later, October 23, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s our usual busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge as we turn the beginning of the day over to the women of music.

It’s ‘Ladies Day Out’ starting at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s Saturday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists

The ladies kick it all off today as we go through a magical musical journey of rock, country, soul, R & B. the blues, folk, and many other genres with Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders), Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro, Bonnie Raitt, Cilla Black, Ann Peebles, The Supremes, Emmylou Harris, Maria Muldaur, Tracy Chapman, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Lulu, Joan Baez, Melissa Etheridge, Dolly Parton, Valerie Carter, Carole King, Carla Thomas and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty FINAL AIRING!

Today we bid a fond farewell to Tom Petty’s first solo album, although he did have help from many of his bandmates in both The Heartbreakers and in The Traveling Wilburys. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Cape Cod Coliseum, South Yarmouth, MA, October 27, 1979 NEW!

Another one from the vault from the world’s ultimate road jam band. This one’s from the Cape Cod Coliseum, a venue which many claims feels like it’s “in the middle of nowhere.” Funny, I don’t remember that. Then again, I don’t remember a lot about my trips to the Cape Cod Coliseum, to be honest.

Great day to tune us in, as always. I know I say that every day, but I also mean it every day. Hey, look, where else do you get to try something out for free. In my experience, new “experiences” always seem to require a credit card with the caveat that you can cancel at any time. Well, that’s not the way we do business around here. In fact, we’re not “doing business” around here. We’re playing music. Period. End of story.
