It’s Wide Open Thursday, Which Brings Our Very First Open Stream Day in a While! The Music Mermaid is in Charge, October 27, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got our very first wide Open Stream day in a long time today! The Music Mermaid is in charge with nothing on her slate. Who know what she’ll pick up.

We also give you Trifectas (three-in-a-row from a single artist) at the top of every hour from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.!

We’re on 24/7 and today we are free of programming as well as free of charge! Tune us in!

Monday Brings Two ‘Live’ Gigs, One From Hot Tuna and One From Mudcrutch, Later It’s Open Stream With Trifectas, September 12, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Monday has reared its head here in The Mermaid Lounge and I’ve got a morning mission of mercy on tap. The Music Mermaid, however, is here to take care of our musical musings for the day.

Here’s your musical landscape today:

12:00 p.m. Hot Tuna Live at Sweetwater, Mill Valley, CA, January 27-28, 1992

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard this one, so step right up and get yourself some live acoustic blues from a great band that knows how to deliver.

4:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Live at The Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, CA, June 26, 2016

Speaking of great bands, we’ve got the tour I deeply regret missing when it pulled into Boston’s House of Blues where the definitive live version of Hungry No More was recorded. I haven’t yet gotten over my short-sightedness on this one. It is a Monday and this is Mudcrutch and, while I’m not declaring it Mudcrutch Monday, it technically is. I felt the need to say that.

After Mudcrutch, it’s wide Open Stream with the Mermaid in charge. I hear she’s got some unannounced Trifectas planned, so I’d better leave it that way. She says you’re just going to have to listen to find out who’s on tap at the top of selected hours. Some of them are new. But my lips are sealed.

At Midweek We’ve Got Our ‘Under the Influence’ EP, Trifectas in the Afternoon, and Jesse Winchester ‘Live’ Later, Wednesday, May 18, 2022

We’ve got some live Jesse Winchester for you later!

Here’s your midweek lineup:

9:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Yeah, we’ve all been here. Let’s not deny it. Whether it was legal or not, we have all indulged. Don’t deny it. You’ll hear Arlo Guthrie, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Donovan, Glenn Frey, John Lee Hooker, Jonathan Edwards, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, The Traveling Wilburys, The Temptations, Small Faces, Steely Dan, Talking Heads, The Beatles, Neil Young, New Riders of The Purple Sage, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Dave Van Ronk, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, Led Zeppelin, The Band, Harry Chapin, The Fraternity of Man, and many more!

3:00 p.m. Open Stream with On-the-Hour Trifectas!

We revert to Open Stream for a few hours, so we’re starting each hour with a Trifecta!

7:00 p.m. Jesse Winchester Live at The Bijou Cafe, Philadelphia, PA, May 26. 1977

Here’s a great singer-songwriter who doesn’t get enough credit, but we love him here in The Mermaid Lounge. He was great when I saw him in venues like The Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York, but he’s spectacular in small, intimate settings like The Bijou Cafe. Tune him in.

The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, The Final Airing of Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD Later Tonight, Saturday, October 2, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Tom Petty Month gets underway in a serious manner today with music from their legendary residency at the Fillmore West in 1997.

The poster series for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, January 10-February 7, 1997

This is just over three hours of music recorded during The Heartbreakers’ legendary residency at The Fillmore West back in 1997. It is testament to the fact that this band is undoubtedly one of the greatest bands ever to step onto a stage and engage with an audience. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen better, and I’ve seen a hell of a lot of live performances in my lifetime.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume One FINAL AIRING

We bid a fond farewell to Volume One of the Traveling Wilburys two great albums. We’ll have the other sometime during Tom Petty Month for sure.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Cotterell Court, Colgate University, Hamilton, NY, November 4, 1977 NEW!

Yet another great live performance from the music world’s untiring, insatiable jam band who made college stops a staple during their lifetime. No matter what anyone tells you, The Dead ain’t The Dead without Jerry Garcia.

Before, in between, and after our programming we’ll give you our standard rotation of 27,000+ songs in Open Stream, without commercial interruption and without the chatty DJ’s. We’re free too, and that makes it even better.
