Good Morning, Musicologists! Well, we’ve made it to the end of the work week (for most) and we’ve got a great musical line up for you today that starts with our ‘Under The Influence’ EP!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists
Yeah. We have all been here at one time or another, haven’t we? I mean, if we are being honest about shit. Whether it’s martinis, hooch, or hallucinogens, at one time or another we’ve indulged. And musicians have been singing about it for decades. You’ll hear The Doors, The Byrds, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Arlo Guthrie, Donovan, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Bob Dylan, Eric Burdon & War, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Neil Young, The Fraternity of Man, and more!
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Petty Theft
If you’ve ever listened to Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure Show on Sirius-XM, you know where The Heartbreakers’ musical DNA comes from. One of the greatest rock n’ roll bands in the world is also one of the best damned cover bands on the planet. Tom Petty loved adding songs to The Heartbreakers’ live performances that paid homage to those whose music inspired them. This is one of our favorite playlists here in The Mermaid Lounge: The Heartbreakers as cover band. We’re sure you’ll love it too.
Yeah, folks, this is the day to tune us in. We’ve got some great music for you today, as we do every day, but this is certainly one of my favorite musical combinations of the programming realm. And before, after, and in between our programming, we give you that wide Open Stream 24/7. For free. Get in on it.
