We’re at Mid-Week With Our ‘Folk Music From A-to-Z’ EP and Booker T. & The MGs In The Spotlight, December 22, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers around the globe. I’ve got an early start to my day, so we’ve got a bit of an early start to our music programming…and another of our multi-artist EPs.

We start off our musical journey with the legends of the American folk scene

Here’s your midweek line-up:

10:00 a.m. Folk Music From A-to-Z: Various Artists UPDATED!

We start today with the legends of folk, along with some folks who just happen to have dipped their toes into the folk music genre. Impressively, I might add. You’ll hear Tom Rush, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Arlo Guthrie, Bonnie Raitt, Nanci Griffith, Dave Van Ronk, The Beatles, Joan Baez, The Stone Poneys, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Wallflowers, Jesse Winchester, Eric Anderson, The Band, Emmylou Harris, Pete Seeger, Cat Stevens, Phil Ochs, Simon & Garfunkel, Odetta, Bruce Springsteen, Peter, Paul & Mary, John Prine, and many more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Booker T. & The MGs

The history of this band is one for the books, folks, and I urge you all to read about it here. They came into play as the house band for Stax-Volt Records. The first iteration of band consisted of 17-year-old Booker T. Jones, Steve Cropper (who was eighteen), Lewie Steinberg, and Al Jackson, Jr., and the rest is musicl history. Tonight we put them In the Spotlight.

We’ve got Portugal, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Russian Federation, Faroe Islands, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Spain, Germany, and points beyond tuning in this morning. What are you waiting for?

Happy Thanksgiving From The Mermaid Lounge, and We Promise Our Line-up is No Turkey Today, Thursday, November 25, 2021

Happy Thanksgiving morning live from The Mermaid Lounge where we give thanks for great music, great musicians and, most of all, great listeners.

Arlo Guthrie and his friends share Thanksgiving dinner at Alice’s Restaurant.

Here’s your Turkey Day line-up:

11:00 a.m. Our Thanksgiving Tradition: The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree by Arlo Guthrie

We’ve been playing this as our Thanksgiving tradition since we started back in 2017, and we continue on today with all 18 minutes and 34 seconds. The song, recorded in 1967, occupies one entire side of Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant album. As Guthrie himself explains it, the restaurant is not really called Alice’s Restaurant, even though the song is about Alice and the restaurant. That factoid is in keeping with the song’s continuing mystery. You can find the lyrics here should you want to sing along.

2:00 p.m. Folk Music From A-To-Z: Various Artists

After the L-Tryptophan has taken effect, you can all sit down and relax with some great folk music as we air our Folk Music From A-To-Z extended playlist and hear Arlo Guthrie, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Cat Stevens, Phil Ochs, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, The Band, Judy Collins, Nanci Griffith, The Stone Poneys, The Wallflowers, Jesse Winchester, Tom Rush, John Prine, Eric Andersen, The Band, Odetta, and many more.

9:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Greatest Hits by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac

We toss in some blues to close out the planned programming with our Album of The Week by the great Peter Green and his original Fleetwood Mac. Most people don’t know he’s the founding father here. This is our next-to-last airing, so squeeze it in before you pass out.

Join us for the Turkey Trot today (figuratively, of course). I wish I could tell you that listening is free today, but the fact is that listening is free every day. Just tune us in and give us a listen today. You’ll be very thankful. We promise.
