Good Morning, Weekenders! It’s our usual busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got some really great stuff shaping up as we ramp up Tom Petty Month approaching October 20.
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, October 1, 1999
This was undoubtedly one of the most amazing performances I have ever witnessed. It was billed as The Two of Us, but it was really in support of their great duet album, Western Wall, The Tucson Sessions recorded at the Arizona Inn.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon FINAL AIRING!
Today we bid a fond farewell to this week’s AOW, Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection. (I repeat this shit every week, don’t I?)
7:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
This one’s not our Album of The Week this week because it has already been our AOW once. But in the midst of Tom Petty Month here in The Mermaid Lounge, we believe this album begs replaying. According to producer Ryan Ulyate, this was one of those albums where Petty kept coming in with great songs…to the point where fifteen were included here. Released on June 15, 2010, it was Petty’s first new album with the band in eight years and the consensus everywhere was that it was well worth the wait.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Uptown Theatre, Chicago, IL, December 3, 1979 NEW!
Another one from the vault from the world’s ultimate jam band. The boys are in fine form here.
And that is our projected day today here in The Mermaid Lounge, In spite of all this great programming, we are mostly Open Stream every day…before, after and in between running uninterrupted 24/7. Give us a shot.
