Today’s Music Includes ‘The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two,’ Our AOW, and a Trip Back to Woodstock ’69 (The Only Real Woodstock), Thursday, December 29, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Today we have full-on Sixties for the two big music programs we’re running. It’s Open Stream with a theme here in The Mermaid Lounge and if you’re a student of the sixties music scene, this is your gig.

Here’s your musical lineup:

10:00 a.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists

We’re starting off the day with the second leg of our Sixties Rotation which covers the later musical years, for the most part. You’ll hear The Mamas & The Papas, Simon & Garfunkel, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Sly & The Family Stone, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Linda Ronstadt, The Byrds, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Blind Faith, Spencer Davis Group, Elvis Presley, The Box Tops, The Doors, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, The Band, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, The Beatles, The Ronettes, The Kinks, Jimmy Cliff, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Zombies, Donovan, Velvet Underground, B.B.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Carney by Leon Russell

We’re coming down to the wire here with this album. This is our next-to-last airing, with the final coming sometime on Saturday, time TBD. On Sunday, we’ll have a brand new selection.

7:00 p.m. Woodstock: Three Days of Peace, Love and Music: Various Artists, August 15-18, 1969, Bethel Woods, NY

The one and only Woodstock. Woodstock ’99 turned into a disaster because it replaced the ‘love’ portion of the program with ‘rage.’ The original Woodstock was NOT replicated. This EP will take you long into the night as you listen to The Band, Johnny Winter, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, CSNY, The Band, Joan Baez, Santana, Melanie, Country Joe & The Fish, Ten Years After, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Joe Cocker, Tim Hardin, Mountain, John B. Sebastian and more. Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock and Melanie’s Lay Down (Candles in The Rain) would tell the tale of this epic music festival.

Yeah, baby. This is definitely a tune in, turn on, drop out kind of musical day here in The Mermaid Lounge. If you’re taking a break from work between the holidays, this is your day. If you’re working and have an office, close the door, pull up a fresh browser tab, and push the button below.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Big, Bad Blues EP and Some ‘Live’ Stevie Ray Vaughan On The Docket, September 27, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Another Tuesday Bluesday has rolled around and we’ve got some great programming for you today that starts with five hours of uninterrupted blues of all kinds!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

10:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

We’ve got some great blues material on this station, but this is our biggest, baddest Tuesday Bluesday feature every month where we shower you with all kinds of blues from artists like Delbert McClinton, B.B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, J.J.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations

The only diversion from our blues programming today is for this great Album of The Week from 1969 where The Temps introduced us to a new genre called ‘psychedelic soul.’

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Bluebird Lounge, Ft. Worth, Texas, September 30, 1979

We close out today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming with a guy who left us much too soon. Stevie Ray Vaughan was, without a doubt, one of the greatest masters of blues guitar and one dominant presence on stage. See for yourself tonight.

Tuesday Bluesday generally brings out a lot of listeners, but we’re not concerned with numbers here because this is a labor of musical love. We do not charge for you to listen…no ‘subscription’ required here. That means you never have to divulge your personal information or give us a credit card number. There are things you can’t do here, like build personal playlists but, then again, that was never what radio was about anyway. When we were kids, radio was about anxiously waiting for the next song and not knowing what it was going to be. That’s what you’ve got here.

We Celebrate Tuesday Bluesday With Paul Butterfield ‘Live’ in Boston and Eva Cassidy ‘Live’ in Georgetown, August 30, 2022

We’ve got some great vintage stuff for you on this fine Tuesday Bluesday with a couple of great ‘live’ performances. Sandwiched in between is our Album of The Week

Join us for Tuesday Bluesday!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at Unicorn Coffee House, Boston, MA, May 1966

This is one of those mystery date performances. I’ve been looking around for the actual date since we uploaded the music five years ago. Nobody seems to have it. But hell, we know it happened. And we know the Unicorn was real, a little one-room venue in Boston where Butterfield frequently played.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Ram by Paul & Linda McCartney

A fine vinyl release here back in the day. The only album ever credited to the husband and wife team eventually ended up being one of McCartney’s most highly acclaimed albums of his solo career.

7:00 p.m. Eva Cassidy Live at Blues Alley, Georgetown, Washington, D.C., January 2-3, 1996

We have the date of this great performance by Eva Cassidy, a great folk and blues singer who passed on the very same year of this performance.

Our overseas friends make up the bulk of listeners every morning. Some of them have been on all night, depending upon where they live! And the folks from Kansas? They’re either dead or just really like the radio station because they’ve been on for two days solid now. Whatever works.

Got the blues? Well, get them here. The blues of the best kind, of course. We’re totally free every single day of the week, not just when we’re doing a “membership” drive. The price of membership here is using your tab and the button below. Your money is no good here.

What better way to follow up five hours of uninterrupted blues than with our new Album of The Week by John Mayall (along with some of his friends). He may have retired from the road in his 80th year, but we’re sure glad he’s still making music.

If you are into The Blues, this is definitely the place to be on a Tuesday. We are in the process of adding new blues music as we move ahead into spring and summer. Join us. It surely isn’t going to cost you anything. This morning, we’ve got Chile, Germany, the UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Brazil, Israel, Faroe Islands, Australia, and Austria tuned in. Get with it.
