We’re at Midweek With Our Newly Expanded House Playlist and The Hollies In the Spotlight, Wednesday, September 29, 2021

Welcome to Midweek, Music Lovers! Last evening we worked on an expanded house playlist and we think you’re going to love it! Stick around and see for yourself!

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists NEWLY EXPANDED!

We spent some time on our house playlist and it definitely has that peace, love, understanding, social justice and revolution vibe. We’ve got a bunch of great artists including The Beatles, Country Joe & The Fish, CSNY, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Cat Stevens, James Brown, Sam Cooke, The Band, Woody Guthrie, Donovan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Lennon, Nina Simone, Peter, Paul & Mary, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Buffalo Springfield, Phil Ochs, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and many more! It is now officially one of our EP’s and another upgrade is in the wind for down the road.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies

Undoubtedly one of the great British Invasion bands. We haven’t heard this one for a while, so it’s long overdue.

Before, in between and after we have wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. Sounds like a pretty good day to open those ears to something completely different in radio!

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of “Hard Promises” Followed by Our House Playlist, Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have another light programming day on tap. But what we have to offer is pretty potent, including our House playlist.

Today we bring you some of the music that inspired the radio station!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Not Our Album of The Week: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Hard Promises by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers NEW!

This is an occasional feature here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hard Promises, released on May 5, 1981. It’s hard to imagine an album this good coming right on the heels of The Heartbreakers’ breakout album, Damn The Torpedoes! (last week’s Album of The Week, by the way), but it did.

It’s true that The Waiting was the anchor of Hard Promises, but there’s also A Woman In Love (It’s Not Me), Nightwatchman, A Thing About You, Something Big, Insider (featuring Stevie Nicks), and one of my favorite Heartbreaker songs of all time, Kings Road.

4:00 p.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

This is nearly three hours of the music that originally inspired me to start this crazy endeavor to begin with. It is due for an upgrade soon, but it’s still one of the best playlists we feature with Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Animals, The Byrds, The Who, The Chambers Brothers, The Temptations, John Lennon, T. Rex, Barry McGuite, Edwin Starr, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joan Baez, Peter Tosh, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. It’s midweek. We all need a break. This is the perfect opportunity, is it not?
