Yes, Music Lovers, Tom Petty Month is winding down here in The Mermaid Lounge, but we have some lovely parting gifts for you beginning this evening! So, be patient and don’t touch that tab!
Here’s today’s line-up:
Infinity (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday
We’ve got one of the best music streams we’ve ever heard, frankly. And today you’ll have some great Three-in-a-Row sequences thrown in.
6:00 p.m. The Petty Bootleg Archives NEW!
‘Nuff said. We’ve got our hands on some great quality fan-recorded material here in The Mermaid Lounge, so stick around. You won’t regret it. We will also have the playlist up in the blog later in the day.
Ready to give us a shot yet? I have no idea what you’re waiting for. If you’re stuck at home working, all you need to do is pull up a tab. It’s as simple as that. You won’t need your wallet. You won’t need to remember your personal information because we don’t ask for it. How’s that?
Good Morning, Blues Lovers! We’ve got a full slate of blues magic today, including our new Three-in-a-Row feature loaded with the blues!
Here’s today’s bluesy line-up:
12:00 p.m. Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live From The Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago, November 22, 1981
Does it get any better than this? The blues are in the Stones’ DNA! This is a great little interlude from the Windy City.
Afternoon Open Stream with Special Three-in-a-Row Blues Jams
We’re open streaming in the afternoon until just about 7:00 p.m. We’ll have special Three-in-a-Row Blues Jams all day from Canned Heat, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more!
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues
Tom Petty once remarked that he’d like it if The Heartbreakers could just get old together sitting in chairs and playing the blues. We would have loved that too. In the meantime, The Heartbreakers certainly could sing and play the blues indeed, and here’s the proof.
It’s time you tuned us in. Listen, you have absolutely nothing to lose. Nada. There are no charges. Ever. There is no need to give us any of your personal information. We don’t ask for it. We don’t require a credit card because there are no hidden charges. Get with the program.
Good Morning, Musicologists! Today is another (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday, and it’s also a Wilbury Wednesday! What could be better?
Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!
Infinity (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday!
We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge circulating about 26,000+ songs every day. No commercials. No talking heads. No politicians. No charge. No bullshit.
And today, we add a new feature to our rotation called Three-in-a-Row, so be listening throughout the day!
6:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
The Traveling Wilburys are the best damned supergroup ever concocted. They released some albums, some videos, and never wanted to go on the road. Five guys who loved hanging out and making music together, and what great stuff they left us. If you’ve never heard their catalogue, tune us in and see for yourself.
Good day to see what we’re all about. I keep saying that stuff. Sooner or we hope you’ll join us.
Good Morning, Musicologists. Today’s mix is anyone’s guess because we’re pretty much Open Stream all day. That is, until The Heartbreakers drop by later to help us celebrate Tom Petty Month.
Here’s your Wednesday line-up:
Infinity (Almost) Completely Open Stream
We will be circulating 25,000+ songs all day long, like we do every day. The only difference is that our first bit of programming isn’t until 5:00 p.m., and that will be the only programming of the entire day.
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
This is one of my favorite playlists. It could have been even longer. For most bands, these are A-side releases. For me, it’s when you get to this kind of playlist that you realize just how fucking great this band was. And I’m talking about all of them, even though it is clear that Petty was the driving force in their success. As with Mudcrutch and The Traveling Wilburys, it was a bunch of friends who loved making music together.
Now children, you have a great day and play nice with each other. In fact, if music tames the savage beast, this could be your day to tune us the fuck in.
Good Morning, Music Lovers. Today’s the day you get a taste of what we’re all about on Open Stream, until later in the day when we most heartily welcome Tom Petty and his bandmates.
Here’s todays line-up:
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty: Wildflowers & All The Rest, The New Releases
Tom Petty’s Wildflowers Project will come to fruition this month, and we eagerly await it here in The Mermaid Lounge. Here are the five songs that have been released to Tom Petty Radio on Sirius-XM to date.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, April 28, 2012
Tom Petty and his bandmates performed live at the yearly New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival every spring. This one is from 2012.
Tune us in, people. We’re (mostly) Open Stream all day today, with a little interlude from the house band later in the day.
Howdy, Music Lovers! We have a (mostly) open-stream Wednesday once again, as has become our tradition. We do have some great stuff on tap later!
Here’s your only programming for today:
6:00 p.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist UPDATED!
Our very first playlist ever back in 2017, recently updated. The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, Ten Years After, Bob Dylan, The Buffalo Springfield, The Who, Genesis, and many more.
Best way to figure out what we’re all about is to listen on an open stream day. That would make today your lucky day!
We’re at mid-week, people. And this midweek is a Wilbury Wednesday. But that won’t be until a bit later in the day. That’s why we call this (Mostly) Open-Stream Wednesday.
Infinity: Open Stream Music: Various Artists
We are wide open right up until 6:00 p.m. tonight, circulating more than 26,000+ songs, with still plenty more to add as we roll through the year.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
In my book (and in that of many others), the finest supergroup ever. Five big-time guys who were friends and liked making music together without ego. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury), George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury), Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Jr.), Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury), and Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury) are the Traveling Wilburys. (By the way, after Orbison’s death, their names changed for the next release. But you can get all the fun details about names if you click the above link!)
Veteran percussionist and drummer, Jim Keltner (Buster Sidebury) was in the seat from beginning to end. Dhani Harrison contributed overdubs on Maxine and Like A Ship, and is credited as Ayerton Wilbury.
Today is Wilbury Wednesday, and you get the entire catalogue.
Let’s get our shit together, people. We’re starting to see some more U.S. listeners tuning in. Let’s keep that trend rolling! Share this with people you know!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s an early morning day today, so we’re going with (mostly) Open Stream until a bit later when Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real drops by for some fun.
Here’s your Wednesday line-up!
All Day (Mostly) Open Stream
Circulating 25,000+ songs without interruption (except my golden voice for a few station I.D. breaks) right up until…
6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Affectionately known as POTR. One of the finest country rock bands you’ll find these days, and currently Neil Young’s back-up band. Lukas probably learned all of this from hanging around with his dad. He was clearly paying attention.
So, what the hell indeed are you waiting for? Perfect day to get the musical lay of the land for this little radio station…a little radio station that shows more variety with less chatter and no advertising. And best of all, we’re free. Put your credit card away. Your money is no good here.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Wide-Open Wednesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re circulating 25,000+ plus songs, while we add even more today! A bit later on, we’ve got a visit from The Beatles.
Here’s our one and only bit of programming today!
6:00 p.m. The Beatles’ Complete Apple Rooftop Concert: January 30, 1969
On a cold, windy day in January Beatle fans in London were treated to a free, impromptu concert by the band from the top of Apple Records headquarters at 3 Saville Row. People were hanging out windows and stood on balconies. Down below, the traffic came to a halt. A splendid time was guaranteed for all.
Tune us in today and see why we’re different. No credit card or personal information required. Just pull up a tab and chill.
