Welcome To The Petty Party! Today We Feature More Wildflowers, Streaming & Dreaming, and Live Dead Later, Saturday, October 24, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! The Petty Party starts today, with a morning and evening trip through Wildflowers & All The Rest. Some stuff you’ve not heard (at least here) yet. But hey, we’re keeping a balance. There’s other stuff too.

Petty. At home. On stage.

Here’s todays line-up!

11:00 a.m. Not The Album of The Week: Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

This is the new package version of Wildflowers. Tom Petty considered this the best thing that The Heartbreakers ever did. It was, technically, a solo album. Except the whole band was on it. So, it really wasn’t. But he did do somethings differently: Steve Ferrone and Rick Rubin among them. It’s a brilliant fucking album.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty

Today’s Airing: All The Rest NEW!

Today’s offering is completely new: The songs that did not make the cut when Petty switched from a double disc to a single. Some of the songs here were used in the She’s The One soundtrack, but they were originally intended for Wildflowers.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! TO BE DETERMINED!

We will have our usual Live Dead offering tonight. We’re just not sure which one it will be yet! We will keep you posted right here a bit later.

In between, we’re streaming great music, giving you some LIVE DEAD, and tossing in the Three-in-a-Rows, so you really should join us. Know what I mean?

Today We Open With Some Heartbreakers, Followed by Bonnie Raitt, Ronstadt at Rockpalast, Our Saturday LIVE DEAD, and Some Wildflowers, October 3, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s our usual full-slate Saturday as Tom Petty Month continues. We’ve got a great Heartbreaker’s playlist today. (Among other great musical experiences.)

I was at this Christmas Eve concert. Best thing I ever did.

Here comes your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Under the Covers

The Heartbreakers were not only the best rock n’ roll band I’ve ever experienced, but they were also the best cover band. They loved to add ‘oldies’ for their live shows, even instrumental recreations like Goldfinger and Booker T’s Green Onions, which happen to be two of my favorites. My first introduction to this was their inclusion of a very energetic version of Shout at the ’78 Boston show. Enjoy this playlist. It’s one of two we own. We will get to the other also.

3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Give It Up by Bonnie Raitt

The final airing of Bonnie Raitt’s excellent Give It Up, our Album of The Week. Tomorrow is a new day. And a new album.

5:00 p.m. Tom Petty: Wildflowers & All The Rest, The New Releases

You’ll be hearing this short playlist regularly as we move toward the release of the entire package around mid-month.

7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at Rockpalast, Germany, November 11, 1976

Linda Ronstadt as she approached her Zenith. She was in full control of her career from start to finish, and it shows.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at USAir Arena, Landover, Maryland October 9, 1994 NEW!

No two show ever the same. Yet another classic Dead performance here. This one in one of the hearts of the Deep State.

Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out. Sounds like a plan on a Saturday. You?

It’s a Bluesy Saturday With Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, and Albert King, September 26, 2020

Don’t scratch your head. The Heartbreakers often sang the blues both live and on vinyl, and the original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band. We also have one late-night tradition we cannot break here.

Peter Green (at the mike) and his blues band, the original Fleetwood Mac

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

There wasn’t any style of music The Heartbreakers couldn’t make, and they have a lot of bluesy music in their catalogue. Mr. Petty often said he envisioned the band sitting around in chairs playing the blues when they got too old to rock. I have absolutely no doubt they could have pulled that off. You won’t either after you hear this playlist.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King

This will be our final airing of Albert King’s gem. Tomorrow at this time, there’ll be a brand new selection! If you want to learn more about this album, or any of our albums, all you need to do is click on the photo in the right sidebar of this blog!

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

Is there a better place to hear a blues band live? Maybe Chicago, but that’s about it. No, this is not the current Fleetwood Mac. The original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, baby. It might interest you to know that Black Magic Woman wasn’t a Santana song. It’s a Fleetwod Mac song.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, New York, June 27, 1985 NEW!

Here’s another band who could sing it all in their own unique style, and they often sang the blues on stage. This is our one non-blue Saturday night offering that will not be denied. The SPAC was one of our favorite musical venues when we were young. I remember packing up the car on the weekends and heading out to upstate New York. We’d camp (for lack of money) and spend what we had at SPAC. We saw many bands here and I have so many fond memories. Never got to see The Dead here, but the imagination still works.

This would be an immensely good day for you to use your index finger to tune us in. It’s really very simple and it’s completely free and without strings, if you can imagine that.

It’s a Busy Saturday Courtesy of Van Morrison & Joni Mitchell, Our Final Airing of our AOW, and Live Dead! on September 12, 2020

Happy Saturday, Ungovernables! Saturdays are usually busier than weekdays, and this is no exception. We have some great programming on tap wrapped around the 24/7 airing of the best music on the planet.

The multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist genius known as Van Morrison.

Here’s your line-up for Saturday:

11:00 a.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, CO, July 30, 1983

Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell has combined folk, jazz, pop and rock over the years to deliver an amazing library of music. She just announced the birth of the Joni Mitchell Archives, a series of boxed sets that include her earliest-recorded work will be released over the next several years. I can tell you this is much anticipated here in The Mermaid Lounge.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Heaven Is In Your Mind by Traffic

This will be the final airing of this week’s Album of the Week. Tomorrow morning, there’ll be a brand new one on the blog.

6:00 p.m. Van Morrison Live at the Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ, October 6, 1979

Again, another singer-songwriter who defies the conventional, and he has also built an incredible body of work that began in the sixties with the British blues band, Them. The concert delivered on this date is classic Van Morrison.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The McNicols Sports Arena, Denver, CO, December 14, 1990 NEW!

This Saturday’s Live Dead! is another strong outing by the world’s ultimate jam band. No two shows were ever the same, even on the same tour. Enjoy.

What you waiting for? I keep saying it: Free. 24/7. No commercials. No politicians. No chatter. Just music and a few station IDs. End of story.

The Final Airing of REVOLVER, Traffic Live at Woodstock ’94, Queen in The Spotlight, and Tonight’s Live Dead on Saturday, September 5, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! As usual, it’s a pretty busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today, we wish Freddie Mercury a happy birthday with a special Spotlight edition.

Traffic-Woodstock 94

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles   FINAL AIRING!

Today, we bid Revolver a fond farewell. Tomorrow, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week on the blog.

3:00 p.m.      Traffic Live at Woodstock ’94

Woodstock ’94 sure wasn’t the original, but anywhere Bob Dylan and Traffic show up to play can’t be all bad.

7:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Queen   NEW!

Today, we’ wish Freddie Mercury a Happy Birthday. If he were alive today, he’d be 72 years old, the oldest member of the classic Queen line-up. Although he passed in 1991, Queen’s music lives on.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, November 7, 1969   NEW!

Another new airing of Live Dead, this one from 1969 at The Fillmore West. I have no idea how many times the band played at The Fillmore, but I promise you no two shows were ever the same. As usual.

I know. Here I go again, like a broken record. It’s time, people, to tune in a station that doesn’t charge you for music. That would be #BecomeUngovernable Radio. Just hit the link below.

It’s a Most Excellent Day Here With The Summer of Love, Our AOW, Linda Ronstadt and The Grateful Dead, on Saturday, August 29, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables and Music Lovers Alike! It’s Saturday and it’s the last work day before my weekend. Time to celebrate.

lindaronstadt

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   The Best of The Summer of Love! The Doors by The  Doors

The Doors had two releases in 1967. This was their debut album, recorded in 1966 and released in January of 1967. It is considered a seminal event in the development of psychedelic and acid rock. An amazing album.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Younger Than Yesterday by The Byrds  FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of this week’s Album of the Week. Tomorrow, there’ll be a new one in its place!

7:00 p.m.     Linda Ronstadt Live at The Capitol Theater, Passaic, New Jersey, December 6, 1975

Heart Like a Wheel was released in 1974, and Prisoner in Disguise in 1975. It was lift-off time on the launch pad of Linda Ronstadt’s career.

10:00 p.m.   Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, December 4, 1966   NEW!

Tonight we take it back to 1966 and the infamous Matrix Club on Fillmore Street, San Francisco, a key location to what is called ‘the San Francisco sound.’ Enjoy.

We are the station with the mostest. No fucking lie. Non-stop music, free of charge with no commercials and no talking heads. Best of all, no politicians.

Simon & Garfunkel in The Spotlight, “Magical Mystery Tour” is Our Summer of Love Feature, The Final Airing of “Are You Experienced?” & Saturday Night’s Live Dead, August 15, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a very busy Saturday in between all that great streaming. Sit yourselves down and enjoy.

simon&garfunkel

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel   NEW!

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel met in grammar school back in 1953, learned how to harmonize together, and began writing music. In 1957, they had their first modest success with Hey Schoolgirl, a song that emulated their idols, The Everly Brothers. The rest is — as they say — history, people.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience  FINAL AIRING!

Today we will bid a fond farewell to Jimi Hendrix’s brilliant debut album. Tomorrow we’ll have another Summer of Love Album of the Week for you.

7:00 p.m.     The Best of The Summer of Love! Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles   NEW!

Like The Doors, the Beatles had two album releases in 1967. Magical Mystery Tour had the unfortunate task of following up Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an impossible task. We feature it today because it’s still a great collection of transformative Beatle songs.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland Arena, San Francisco, December 31, 1977   NEW! 

What could be better than spending New Year’s Eve with The Grateful Dead in San Francisco? Not much, people.

This is your day to tune us in. Don’t waste any more time. We’re free. We’re outside the system. And we intend to stay that way.

Roy Orbison in B & W, A Tribute to Hank, The LIVE DEAD Train Rolls On, and The Final Airing of “All Things Must Pass,” Saturday, August 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a new day here in The Mermaid Lounge. To say that today’s offering to the music gods is eclectic would be an understatement.

roy orbison black & white night (1)

Here’s today’s line-up from the lounge:

11:00 a.m.   Roy Orbison & Friends: The Original Black & White Concert

This concert was originally broadcast on January 3, 1988, and was shot entirely in black and white. Hence, the name. By any standards this was a great night, with Orbison joined on stage by Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, and many others. A splendid time was had by all.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison  FINAL AIRING!

We bid farewell to All Things Must Pass, George Harrison’s unbelievable first solo post-Beatles effort. Tomorrow, it’ll be something new!

7:00 p.m.     Timeless: A Tribute to Hank Williams, Various Artists

I love these collections, where musicians have the opportunity to pay their respects to those who influenced them. With Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Keith Richards, and more!

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at William & Mary College, Williamsburg, Virginia, September 24, 1976   NEW!

The consummate road band. We have not had one repeat performance since this program started. There is no end to material here. Best of all, no two shows are ever the same. 

If you want to know what we’re all about, this would be a good day to find out. See for yourself how easy it is to tune us in. All you need is a browser tab and the link below. No credit card. No personal information. No advertising. No bullshit. No lie.

The Wailers’ Final Concert, Fats Domino in The Spotlight, Farewell to “Miles of Aisles” & This Week’s LIVE DEAD, Saturday, August 1, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a great line-up for Saturday, including Bob Marley’s final performance ever and our new Live Dead concert!

Bob-Marley-Press-Murphy-Hershman-Crop-1480x832

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Stanley Theater, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, September 23, 1980

This would be the lion’s final concert ever as he continued to perform with malignant melanoma. Bob Marley would leave this earth on May 11, 1981. Listen to the man, people. Get up, stand up.

3:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Miles of Aisles by Joni Mitchell   FINAL AIRING!

We bid a fond farewell to Joni Mitchell’s first live album ever, Miles of Aisles. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new selection!

7:00 p.m.      In The Spotlight: The Music of Antoine “Fats” Domino

I’m not sure people truly understand how instrumental Fats Domino was to the birth of rock n’ roll, but we here do. He sold 65 millon records between 1955 and 1960 — in just five years. He also had eleven top 10 hits during that time also.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Greek Theater, University of California at Berkeley, May 23, 1982   NEW!

Jerry Garcia leads the greatest jam band on the planet back for another live session, this time from The Greek Theater at UCal Berkeley. 

In between all of this great programming, we are rotating 23,000+ songs. The chances of you hearing a duplicate song are slim and none. Give us a try today. We’re free. We’re outside the system, and we’re not in this for the money. We’re not making a dime.

TP & The Heartbreakers Visit Fenway, The Dead’s Famous Mount Saint Helens Show, and Farewell to “Homegrown,” on Saturday, July 11, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Welcome to Saturday! Our musical landscape is very agreeable today. Great programming and a lot of open stream.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Homegrown by Neil Young

Today is the final airing of this long-awaited (and I mean, long-awaited) album. On Sunday we will have a new album posted on the blog.

7:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at Fenway Park, August 30, 2014

From The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye Tour. The 2014 Fenway Park, Boston, show is considered one of the very best on this tour.

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at The Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, Oregon, June 12, 1980.   NEW!

Known as the famous Mount Saint Helens show, it took place just two weeks after the devastating first major eruptions of the Mount Saint Helens volcano. The volcano actually erupted for the second time during the Dead’s performance of Fire On The Mountain, appropriately raining ash down on the crowd. 

You can read Bill Walton’s account right here. If you don’t know Bill Walton, you should look him up.

Tune us in. We don’t know any other way to say it at this point: You have no idea what you are missing. For fucking free.
