It’s Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday With Some Trifectas Until Alison Krauss & Union Station and The Shadow Drop In, January 13, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! This is our usual (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday with just a touch of programming to keep you on your proverbial toes.

Alison Krauss and Union Station.

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

All Day (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday

Yeah, we’re circulating about 27,000+ songs every single day, and today is no exception. You’ll have it wide open until evening.

6:00 p.m. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live!

A great performance recorded live at The Louisville Palace, April 29-30, 2002. It was the band’s eleventh album, but their first live album.

10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 07 The League of Terror

This one’s all about counerfeiters, and it features Agnes Moorehead (Bewitched).

Tune us in. You’re wasting so much good musical time when you don’t.

It’s Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday With Visits From Jethro Tull and The Shadow, January 6, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s another nose-to-the-grindstone morning as we shove all this shit out before the working bell rings.

Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull.

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?

It’s Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday Until Our House Playlist and The Shadow Come Along Later, December 30, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! This is another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday. We’ll be circulating 27,000+ songs now that we upgraded our standard rotation. But we’ve got some great programming later!

Mr. Lennon tried to get us to “Give Peace A Chance.” We didn’t listen. You should listen to our House Playlist later for other warnings we didn’t bother to heed.

Here’s today’s line-up:

All Day (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday

Again, circulating 27,000+ songs for your listening pleasure. If you’re fortunate enough to work from home, why not put this on in the background?

5:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist

All of the music that reflects our attitude here in The Mermaid Lounge. Hear John Lennon, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, The Temptation, Peter Tosh, and many more!

10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 05 Hounds In The Hills

A replay of this week’s episode. It’s 30 minutes of outright suspense, then back to our Open Stream.

Tune us in. We’re free. We don’t run commercials. We don’t employ DJ’s that don’t know how to shut the fuck up, and we don’t interrupt or cut songs short. That’s another bonus.

Merry Christmas to All From The Mermaid Lounge, Home of #BecomeUngovernable Radio, Friday, December 25, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers everywhere and a very Merry Christmas here from all of us here laboring in the lounge. Today, we are not forcing you into a music lesson (we will be back tomorrow), and there is no programming!

It’s all on the Mermaid today as we celebrate St. Nick on TOTALLY Open Stream. Whatever the Music Mermaid chooses is what you get! In the meantime, in the background here, we will be adding new music and playlists that you will begin hearing tomorrow!

Get on it. The Music Mermaid is running the show today.

For those of you who don’t know how the Music Mermaid works, she’s fully in charge and picks up music from our stream randomly. What does that mean? Well, she could, and has in the past, literally pick up and stream, say, a playlist. For example, she could choose to play Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Lucca, Italy, or The Beatles Complete Rooftop Concert. In short, whatever the Mermaid fancies is what she’ll do.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day and that you choose to spend at least part of it here with us, where we do not play Christmas music. It’s Christmas every day here.

Here We Are at Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday, with The Allman Brothers and The Shadow Dropping By Later, December 23, 2020

Good Day, Music Lovers! It’s one constant we have: (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday, and it’s back here this week. Later in the day, we’ve got just a smattering of programming.

The Beacon Theatre. New York.

Here’s today’s line up!

All Day (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday with Three-in-a-Rows!

Yep. We’ve got it all. More than 26,000 songs rotating throughout the day and night. Sorry, but alas, there is no disco, rap, hip-hop.

5:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Play All Night Long, Live at The Beacon, New York City

The Brothers recorded live on March 10 and 11, 1992, at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York, including almost 21 minutes of In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.

9:00 p.m. The Shadow 04: Death Under The Chapel

Insanity, suicide, students, and revenge. That’s all you need to know.

This would be a great day to tune us in. You can get a real flavor for the kind of music we play all day and all night long. Best of all, we’re free. No subscription. No credit card. No personal information required. Nope. None.

Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday, With Our ‘All About Blue Too’ Playlist and The Shadow Later, December 16, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! Today we have our (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday with a springling of programming thrown in for extra flavor!

Streaming 26,000+ songs and Three-in-a-Rows all day long.

5:00 p.m. All About Blue Too: Various Artists NEW!

Hear Little Feat, Phoebe Snow, Doc Watson, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, The Kinks, Buddy Guy, Cream, Emmylou Harris, The Smithereens, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jerry Jeff Walker, Linda Ronstadt and many more!

8:00 p.m. The Shadow 03: Death From The Deep

The second airing of the latest episode of The Shadow.

Come on, folks! Get your musical shit together and join us!

It’s (Mostly) Open Stream Until Wilbury Wednesday Kicks In and The Shadow Drops By Later, December 9, 2020

Here we are again in the middle of the week with Open Stream and another Wilbury Wednesday with Otis, Lucky, Lefty, Nelson, and Charlie T. Jr. These guys are always a good time!

The original Traveling Wilburys, before Roy Orbison’s passing in 1988. The best supergroup on the damned planet.

Here’s today’s line-up!

All Day (Mostly) Open Stream with Three-in-a-Row’s

We are rotating more than 26,000 songs now. We recently added The Kingston Trio, The entirety of the new Petty Wildflower’s & All The Rest and American Treasure boxed sets, some live Emmylou Harris & Linda Ronstadt, and LaVern Baker. We’ve also added more Jerry Jeff Walker and Roy Orbison solo work. We continue to build the library.

5:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Welcome to Another Wilbury Wednesday!

Last time around, we offered up some great bootlegs that nobody has ever heard before. This time around, it’s their entire released catalogue. Sit yourself down and relax, and listen to some of the best songs on the planet from what is largely considered to be the absolute best supergroup ever.

9:00 p.m. The Shadow: Caverns of Death

Join Orson Welles with this classic Old Time Mystery Radio show!

We’re here 24/7 without interruption: No endless DJ chatter. No advertising. We don’t ask for your personal information or your credit card. That’s because we’re not here to make money. We’re here to deliver great music that you absolutely DO NOT hear on other stations.

It’s an Open Stream Friday All Day Until The Beatles and The Shadow Drop By, Friday, December 4, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! We have a planned server upgrade today, so we will be Open Streaming right up until this evening when The Beatles and The Shadow drop by.

Here’s today’s line-up:

All Day Open Stream Friday with Three-in-a-Row’s!

We have an all-day Open Stream. Whatever the Streaming Mermaid picks up is what will play. We’re circulating 26,000+ songs all day. No two days ever sound the same here in The Mermaid Lounge.

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Endgame

The endgame battles of the Fab Four are legendary, but they continued to make outstanding music right up until the end, and they resolved their personal issues over time. What they contributed to rock music far outweighs their personal issues. This is the third and final portion of our Beatles Retrospective series.

10:00 p.m. The Shadow: Aboard The Steamship Amazon

Our final airing of this week’s episode of The Shadow. We got off to a late start with the opening of the show this week, but next week, The Shadow airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Watch the schedule!

This is a good day to tune us in and get the flavor for what our music and programming is all about. Tomorrow, we kick off some new playlists, and new artists in our general rotation as we prepare for The Winter of Our Discontent.

It’s Another (Mostly) Open-Stream Wednesday With Warren Zevon In The Spotlight, and The Shadow Coming Up Later, on December 2, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! Here we are with another (Mostly) Open-Stream Wednesday where we circulate 26,000+ songs every day, including Three-in-Rows, for your listening pleasure.

Warren Zevon, no ordinary singer-songwriter.

Here’s is your mid-week line-up!

All Day Open Stream: Circulating 26,000+ Songs With Three-in-a-Row Interludes!

We’ve got our library wide open and streaming right up until our first bit of programming for the day! You’ll hear three-in-a-row’s from your favorites as you stream through the day.

6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Warren Zevon

Today we put Warren Zevon’s considerable musical talents In The Spotlight. He wasn’t just a songwriter; he was also a hell of a performer. Warren’s demons notwithstanding (drugs, alcohol, partying, and the resulting blackouts), Zevon managed to put together an incredible musical career. We love this guy’s music in The Mermaid Lounge.

9:00 p.m. The Shadow, Episode 1: Aboard The Steamship Amazon NEW!

Today we kick off our Winter Suspense Series with The Shadow. Find out what happens to the unsuspecting passengers upon the luxury cruise ship Amazon, which is being used to smuggle munitions for a band of revolutionaries. We’re certainly not going to tell you. You’re going to have to tune it in.

If you tune us in early, you’ll certainly get more than a flavor for what we’re all about musically. We are free. No strings. No credit card required, and no personal information requested.

A 50th Anniversary Celebration for ALL THINGS MUST PASS, and Valerie Carter in The Spotlight Later, Friday, November 27, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers Everywhere! Here we are with another day of exceptional music in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got some great stuff wrapped around all that Open Stream.

Valerie Carter, the little girl with the big voice.

Here’s today’s musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. The 50th Anniversary Celebration: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison NEW!

Today is the 50th anniversary of George Harrison’s triple-album release of All Things Must Pass. It is the first ex-Beatle solo album and the hit, My Sweet Lord, would become the first ex-Beatle solo song to go to #1. Today we celebrate with the expanded version of this album.

Afternoon Open Stream with Three-in-a-Row’s All Afternoon

We had a pretty busy Thanksgiving bit of programming and Saturday is always busy, so today we’re working on an afternoon of open stream.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Valerie Carter

Undoubtedly one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge. Valerie Carter was an extraordinary talent who not only had a successful solo career, but also shared her vocal talent with her friends in the music world. You will enjoy this playlist.

This is a great day to tune us in, people. You will enjoy what you hear, and you will appreciate what you don’t hear: endless D.J. chatter and advertising. Tune us in by clicking the link below.
