We’ve Got Lots of Open Stream Today Punctuated by Two Guitar Gods and The Ladies of Rock Later, Friday, July 9, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’re giving you lots of open stream today as we prepare for our usual hectic Saturday programming.

Later on today, The Ladies are in charge.

Here’s your line-up:

12:00 p.m. Duane Allman & Eric Clapton: Studio Jams 1-6

Here we have just over an hour of music from two of the best in the business, just hanging out in the studio together blowing the doors off the place. Enjoy.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Volume 3: Various Artists

We haven’t heard one of these for a while. The time is absolutely right. In this volume, you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Phoebe Snow, Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Carole King, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Melissa Etheridge, Valerie Carter, Wendy Waldman, Susan Tedeschi, Aretha Franklin, Melanie, and many more!

In between all this stuff, you’ll hear wide Open Stream today. The Music Mermaid can pick up anything she likes when we’re on that setting. She may even be inclined to pick up a playlist or two. You never know, and I am out of control when she’s in charge. That’s how it works here.

We Open With the Original All-Girl Revue, Move to Jackson Browne Live at The Main Point, and Close With the Iconic Beatles Rooftop Concert, Friday, April 9, 2021

We’re back with programming today, but just in the right amounts. We’ve got a new “live” event today as we bring in some new material for the spring and summer, and we’ve added some new music, which we’ll tell you about in a separate blog entry later today.

The Beatles Rocked the Apple Rooftop Back in ’69 for a glorious 42 minutes.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Original All-Girl Revue: Various Artists

The very first “all-girls” list we ever put together is back with Carly Simon, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Lulu, Janis Joplin, Mary Wells, Joan Baez, Melanie, Roberta Flack, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, The Supremes, Fontella Bass, Stevie Nicks, and more!

3:00 p.m. Jackson Browne Live at The Main Point, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, August 15, 1973 NEW!

This is a short (by today’s standards, of course) sweet, spirited set by Jackson Browne along with brilliant multi-instrumentalist David Lindley which took place at the now-defunct Main Point, a small, intimate venue.

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Complete Apple Rooftop Concert, January 30, 1969

For 42 glorious minutes, The Beatles thrilled the lunchtime crowd with an impromptu concert on the rooftop of Apple headquarters at 3 Saville Row before the Metropolitan Police shut them down for excessive noise. Billy Preston joined them on keyboards.

You simply have got to join your friends from France, Germany, the UK, Canada, Italy, Japan, the Russian Federation, the Faroe Islands, and points beyond. Just open a tab and click the link below:

The All-Girl Revue, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ in San Jose, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and Band On The Run, Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Does it get any better than this? Of course, it can. This is #BecomeUngovernable Radio where everything we do every day is done without giving one thought to the system.

Springsteens Seeger Sessions-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Paul McCartney & Wings, Band On The Run

The problem with being a Beatle is that — as a solo artist — you are always measured by the band’s standards. When it’s one of you, those are eight tough shoes to fill. This album was, without a doubt, outstanding. And given the various calamities that took place during the recording of this album, it’s a miracle it was. You can read about it here.

2:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3

Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris, Melanie, and Dolly Parton grace this particular volume.

5:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones, One From the Vault: San Jose, 1999

Mick and the boys tear it up.

9:00 p.m.      Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions

This shit is just unbelievable. Springsteen pays appropriate homage to folk god Pete Seeger.

Before, in between, at the end…in fact, 24/7: We are open all day and night with the best music on the damned planet. See for yourself.
