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.

On Tuesday Bluesday We Intro Our New ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP and Our Second Airing of Eva Cassidy’s AOW, June 14, 2022

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and we’ve finally converted our Chicago Blues playlist into an EP with the addition of new cuts and artists. We also give you Eva Cassidy later.

Today we debut our expanded ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists UPDATED & EXPANDED!

We’ve been threatening to do this, and it finally came to fruition over the weekend. Our Chicago Blues playlist has now grown up and is an EP! We’ve added all new cuts and some new artists. You’ll hear Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush, Willie Dixon Albert King, Little Walter, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson, Son Seals, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more! This is now just over five hours of uninterrupted blues!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: American Tune by Eva Cassidy

The second airing of this great posthumously-released album is upon us. It’s a collection of rehearsal songs and live cuts from a woman who passed from our realm far too soon.

We’re on simple mode today as we debut our new extended playlist. We’ve also got some new Tuesday Bluesday surprises coming up as we gear up for summer! You’re going to like it around here as we move forward with some new music and new playlists. And we’re totally free. We’re a labor of musical love.

It’s Another Tuesday Bluesday With the Best of Chicago Blues, Our Bluesy AOW from Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder, and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live from NOLA, May 17, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got a great line-up for you today. It’s a total blues Tuesday as our Album of The Week by Taj Mahal with Ry Cooder fits the bill nicely.

Today we’ve got the original blues version of Fleetwood Mac live from NOLA!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

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

This one is due for expansion and that should be completed by the next airing. On this day, you’ll hear Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Magic Slim, Son Seals, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Get On Board, Taj Mahal with Ry Cooder

The second airing of this great album. After 56 years, Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder reunite for a tribute album to blues legends Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.

7:00 p.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans, February 1, 1970

This is undoubtedly the preferred version of Fleetwood Mac here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we’ve got them live from The Warehouse in New Orleans. Don’t miss it.

As always, a great day to tune us in. Every Tuesday is Bluesday here, no exceptions. We’re free. We do not run advertising. We do not ask for a “subscription,” a credit card, or your personal information. We’re all about the music. What’s not to love, I ask.

On Tuesday Bluesday We’ve Got Our Big, Bad Blues EP, and The Second Airing of Bonnie Raitt’s AOW, April 26, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re offering up five hours of uninterrupted blues by the masters and those they’ve inspired!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

What started as a two-hour playlist expanded to a five-hour playlist. And pretty soon, there’ll be a volume two coming your way. But in the meantime, you’ll hear 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, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J.

The second airing of Bonnie’s great new album, her first new album in six years. She’s all over our airwaves today!

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to join us, no matter how you look at it. But then again, every day is a great day to tune us in. What more can we say? We can’t convince you if you don’t try.

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 Not Just Tuesday Bluesday, But It’s Fat Tuesday, and That Means We Head Down to New Orleans, March 1, 2022

You know what they say, Music Lovers! Beware the Ides of March. But today? It doesn’t get any better as Fat Tuesday falls on Tuesday Bluesday, and that means a pretty good dose of Bluesiana!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Best Louisiana Blues, Volume 1: Various Artists

I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Louisiana, New Orleans mostly, and I can tell you that the music is unbeatable. That’s where I was introduced to the Daywalkers and Chance Bushman, both local artists who have found their way into our rotation. But today, you’ll hear from the blues masters, like Clarence Frogman Henry, Little Walter, Bobby Charles, Muddy Waters Slim Harpo, Louisiana Red, Warren Storm, to name several. Don’t miss it.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Revelator by Tedeschi Trucks Band

Better still, it’s an all-blues Tuesday this week since we’re airing today’s premier electric blues bands and their debut killer album, Revelator. There’s no denying the greatness of Tedeschi Trucks, and that Derek Trucks is the finest blues guitarist on the planet right now.

7:00 p.m. The Best Louisiana Blues, Volume 2: Various Artists

We’re back in Louisiana for a spell this evening with volume two of our blues selection today. You’ll hear Big Bill Broonzy, Smiley Lewis, The Big Bopper, Earl King, Cookie & The Cupcakes, Lightnin’ Slim, Warren Storm, Frankie Ford, Joe Jones, more Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, and Clarence Frogman Henry.

I made a great Fat Tuesday lunch for a friend on Monday. You should make yourself one today and enjoy all this great music. Hell, it won’t cost you a thing but time.

Tuesday Bluesday Brings Our Great Extended Blues Playlist, and Our Second Airing of ‘Meet The Beatles,’ February 22, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Today we bring you our monthly trip to Blues Land with our great extended blues playlist, just a little over five hours of some of the greatest blues ever.

From Muddy Waters, to B.B. King, To Johnny Winter, and Paul Butterfield. We’ve got the blues today in the best of ways!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

Today we’ve got one of our most popular playlists for you as we deliver the blues from B.B King, Delbert McClnton, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Janis Joplin, The Yardbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Allman Brothers Band, Elmore James, John Mayall, James Cotton, J.J. Cale, Koko Taylor, Long John Baldry, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, Marcia Ball, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Susan Tedeschi, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Roomful of Blues, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Meet The Beatles by The Beatles

Today is the second airing of the musical shot heard round the world as the British Invasion came to America on February 7, 1964. The rest, as they say, is musical history.

Before, in between, and after our programming there is no silence. We run 24/7 with some of the best music on the planet and a definite devotion to rock n’ roll, folk, blues and rhythm & blues. You won’t hear rap, hip-hop, disco, or headbanging music here. We don’t have Joe Rogan either, thankfully. We are definitely not all things to all people. But, we are always free of charge. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, it’s all about the music.

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.

It’s a Full-Day Tuesday Bluesday Here Today, Including a Brand New Chicago Blues Playlist, November 23, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We have a full day Tuesday Bluesday this week because our Album of The Week is blues too! Does it get any better than that?

There’s no place like Chicago and The Blues!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

There’s nothing like Chicago and the blues, that’s for sure. I made several trips out to the Windy City during a previous lifetime and made sure to frequent the blues clubs every time. Today 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!

This one is already crying out for update and extension. We’ll get there, but we kick off this playlist with nearly three hours of blues.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Greatest Hits by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac

This is the second airing of our AOW, and it’s a great one. As I’ve said before, greatest hits collections do not often appear on our list (there are always exceptions), but his one belongs here. Not many people realize that Peter Green is a founding member of Fleetwood Mac, and that the Mac started out as a British blues-rock band.

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

I remember my first trip to the House of Blues in New Orleans years ago and the painting of Taj Mahal on the box office wall. I’ve been hooked ever since. Taj Mahal, also known as Henry St. Claire Fredericks, Jr., is a blues musician, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who plays banjo, guitar, piano and harmonica, among other instruments. He often gives a little world music flavor to the blues. You’ll love him if you haven’t heard him before.

We’re waiting on y’all. Germany, Italy, France, Russian Federation, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain…come on down and enjoy the tunes. Tuesday Bluesday is definitely a good day.
