We move into midweek with some great musical programming, including some vintage live Jefferson Airplane in Copenhagen.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Jefferson Airplane Live at The Falconer Center, Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, Denmark, August 28, 1968
The big kahuna of psychedelic rock opens up our programming live from Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris Forgotten Gems and Rarities
In spite of her country roots, Emmylou Harris never wanted to be defined as a modern-day country music singer, preferring to define herself on her own terms instead. She has done that throughout her career.
7:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist
We’ve got a few hours of some of the best hits of the sixties waiting for you later this evening. You won’t want to miss it.
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 10 Murders in Wax
The second airing of this week’s episode of The Shadow, in which our hero must figure out who is replacing wax figures with actual corpses. Ick.
Tune us in. You won’t regret it. And we promise we are everything we say we are. Or we wouldn’t say it.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today we celebrate Mike Campbell’s 71st birthday by highlighting his work with both Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Mudcrutch.
Here’s your line-up for today:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo
There’s no doubt in any Heartbreaker fan’s mind about how important Mike Campbell was to their success. Here we offer every song written by Tom Petty & Mike Campbell together.
3:00 p.m. Warren Zevon Live at The Electric Ballroom, Atlanta, Georgia, June 9, 1993
To say that Warren Zevon was a self-destructive individual would be an understatment. He burned a lot of bridges in his lifetime. But his musical genius cannot be denied.
7:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Live at The Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, California, June 26, 2016
Mudcrutch was the band that left Gainesville with Tom Petty as he set out on his musical journey. The band would not catch on, but it did morph into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Later, Petty would bring the band back together and this time, their fortunes were very different.
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 10 Murders in Wax NEW!
The Shadow must use his mystical powers to find out who’s replacing wax figures with real murder victims.
Tune us in. There’s nothing to join. There’s no fee. We run 24/7 totally free. No commercials either.
Good Morning from The Mermaid Lounge where we offer up some of the best damned music on the planet every single day. Today, we’ve got some new live Linda Ronstadt for you.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Badfinger
Badfinger was one of the truly bonafide hit groups ever signed by Apple Records, and a great power pop band. Their story is quite tragic because they were screwed over by their manager, but they made some truly great music in their time.
3:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Record Plant, Sausalito, California (1973) NEW!
Seek and ye shall find. That is our motto here in The Mermaid Lounge, and this is the beginning of some great new stuff coming your way. Here we have Linda Ronstadt live from The Record Plant with some classic stuff from her early solo career. This was broadcast live on KSAN Radio.
7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at The Atlanta International Pop Festival, July 3-5, 1970
Simply one of the greatest bands in music history and certainly pioneers of that Southern rock sound. And could they play the blues? Damned straight they could. But it wasn’t just about the legendary guitarist Duane Allman. It was about Gregg Allman, the band’s songwriter and the man who kept them going after Duane’s tragic death.
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 09 Murder On Approval NEW!
This is certainly appropos at this particular time in history. This is the one about a germ released near military installations, designed to kill soldiers so that the U.S. is left open to invasion. It’s up to The Shadow to save our sad, sorry asses.
Tune us in, people. You have no idea what you’re missing until you do. This one is on you.
Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great line-up today here from The Mermaid Lounge. Some people are forgotten at times. We won’t allow that to happen to Sam Cooke.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at The Harlem Square Club, Miami, Florida, January 12, 1963
This performance was recorded back in 1963, but not released until 1985. RCA kept it locked in their vaults, thinking it was too gritty and would tarnish his pop image. In fact, it is now recognized as one of the best live performances in popular music history. Today we celebrate what would be Sam Cooke’s 90th birthday.
3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead FINAL AIRING!
That pesky beyond-the-grave killer returns. It’s a mystery, of course, until The Shadow figures it out.
7:00 p.m. Between Heaven & Hell: Various Artists
Haven’t heard this one in a while. This is a good day for it. Tuning us in will bring you Donovan, Led Zeppelin, The Foo Fighters, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, The Grass Roots, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and then some!
We’re free. We’re not intrusive. We do not require a credit card or personal information. All you need to do is click on the link below.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are working in reverse today because there’s a lot of shit going on in The Mermaid Lounge today. Our music trivia will appear after this a bit later on. Sorry to upset your mojo.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul McCartney
With the Beatles, with Wings, and as a solo artist, Paul McCartney has stood the test of time. Yeah, he was the most commercial of The Beatles. Without that, there would not be the opportunity to create the other shit. Record companies don’t support people who don’t create revenue. That’s how capitalism works, like it or not.
3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & The Desert Rose Band
One of our favorites, Emmylou Harris, takes a turn with the Desert Rose Band, founded by ex-Byrd Chris Hillman. Other members include Herb Pederson, John Jorgenson, Bill Bryson, JayDee Maness, and Steve Duncan.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Booker T. & The MG’s
Ah yes, remember when instruments mattered in music? Now, according to Kanye West, Yeezy, Ye, Assclown of the Century, you can make all that shit sound with a computer and a program. Progress. Ain’t it great?
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead NEW!
A convicted man sentenced to death vows retribution from the grave. A judge and a D.A. are murdered shortly after his execution. They better call The Shadow fast because the jury foreman is next unless someone figures this shit out.
Tune us in, people. You are wasting valuable hours of ear candy. Get on it.
Good Morning from The Mermaid Lounge where we have some excellent programming planned for today, so give us a shot!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Mudcrutch Monday Madness: The Works!
This is the band that Tom Petty left Gainesville with all those years ago. In fact, the original Don’t Do Me Like That was a Mudcrutch song. Mudcrutch didn’t pan out back then, but it morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Then, in 2008, Tom Petty brought the original Mudcrutch back, and it was a whole new ballgame. We have their entire catalogue here this morning. You’ll want to hear this.
5:00 p.m. Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino: Various Artists
There is no denying Antoine ‘Fats’ Domino’s place in the annals of rock n’ roll music. I’m not sure anybody was actually playing it before he was. This is truly an all-star tribute, featuring Art Neville, John Lennon, Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones, Tom Petty, Robbie Robertson, Toots & The Maytalls, Irma Thomas & Marcia Ball, Bonnie Raitt, Paul McCartney, Allen Toussaint and more!
9:00 p.m. The Shadow: 07 League of Terror NEW!
Not only do we have Orson Welles in this episode, but Agnes Moorehead, as they take down a counterfeit ring that is preying on the poor. (Frankly, sounds like the government.)
Come on, people. Join us this morning, and then stay with us for the day. We don’t cost a penny. And we don’t want your credit card number or personal information either. We have our own.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! The ladies own the day today, and rightfully so. And by the way, there is no other radio station shining a light on women in rock music.
Here’s your line-up for this fine day:
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt: The Stone Poneys & The Early Years
A pretty concise retrospective here of Linda Ronstadt’s beginnings, before she stole that show on that Neil Young arena tour and before Heart Like A Wheel launched her incredible career. The groundwork was laid with The Stone Poneys and her early contributions.
3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 06 House of Horror FINAL AIRING!
Our final airing of this week’s episode of The Shadow. On Monday, we will have episode seven.
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4: Various Artists
It’s funny how women continue to be a footnote in rock n’ roll history. There is so much evidence of their contribution that it cannot legitimately be denied. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we don’t view rock n’ roll as strictly a man’s world. The evidence is quite to the contrary.
In this volume of The All-Girl Revue you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Valerie Carter, Petula Clark, Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Carly Simon, and many more!
Tune us in. We’re free. I mean, really free: No credit card or personal information required. All you need is a computer ad a free tab. No shit. No lie.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s another nose-to-the-grindstone morning as we shove all this shit out before the working bell rings.
Here’s today’s line-up:
All Day (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday with Some Trifectas!
Once again, we’re circulating 27,000+ songs. We added 500 new files last week alone. Remember to listen for those Trifectas! (Yeah. I renamed them. The other was too complicated to type.)
5:00 p.m. Jethro Tull Live at The Capitol Centre, Landover, Maryland, November 21, 1977
Jethro Tull was one of the finest, most unique bands on the planet. I saw them at least three times that I can remember, but the most memorable one was at the Music Hall in Boston. And the fact that I can remember any of my musical escapades at all is a miracle.
9:00 p.m. The Shadow: 06 House of Horror
The one about the stolen gorilla, the mad scientist, and a brain transplant. What could possibly go wrong?
I hope you folks have a wonderful day. But I promise you’d feel a lot better about life if you’d just tune us in. I’m actually quite serious about that. I mean, seriously, what do you have to lose?
Good Morning, Music Maestros! Here we are kicking off another week from The Mermaid Lounge at #BecomeUngovernable Radio! We’ve got some great programming today mixed in with all that Open Stream!
Here’s today’s musical line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Association Live at The Salt Palace, Salt Lake City, Utah, April 3, 1970 NEW!
Here we are with one of the more underrated bands of the sixties. I think The Association is one of the most intriguing bands of sixties, hard to pin down, and with a really nice sound. I wasn’t intending on a Haiku. Sorry.
3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 06 House of Horror NEW!
Okay, here’s the deal: A mad scientist steals a gorilla from the zoo. (How is that possible?) There’s also a brain transplant involved, but I’m not giving you the details. By now, you are so on the edge of your seat that you just have to tune this one in. While I won’t reveal the details, I will say that I think The Three Stooges also did this episode.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Lovin’ Spoonful
“In a coffee house Sebastian sat, and after every number they’d pass the hat…” Those are the lyrics from The Mamas & The Papas song, Creeque Alley, the story of the Laurel Canyon days. They also talk about McGuinn (The Byrds) and McGuire (Eve of Destruction), but Sebastian is John of The Lovin’ Spoonful, a great little sixties jug band. Those were the days.
Well, you have a lovely day in spite of the fact that it is Monday. You could always improve your attitude by tuning us in. We’re free. We don’t ask for your info or your credit card number. And we certainly don’t want your personal details. We’ve got nothing to sell you.
