We Bring You The End of the Work Week With Our ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’ EP and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers at The Fillmore Vintage ’99, Friday, August 12, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have hit Friday, and that is always a good thing in my book. That means I have but one more day in retail hell. Today, we give you a little bit of soul and some live TPATH.

Today’s EP covers the entire soul and R & B spectrum, not just Motown!

Here’s today’s lineup:

11:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

Today we cover the spectrum of this great musical genre with Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Ronettes, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Nina Simone, LaVern Baker, The Supremes, Sam Cooke, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Irma Thomas and more! Five uninterrupted hours of soul and R & B!

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, March 15-16, 1999

Here we have The Heartbreakers on the High Grass Dogs Tour, making their traditional stop at San Francisco’s iconic Fillmore. One great live band at a great venue. They’re our house band for a reason, people. Find out why.

Before, in between and after, we’ve got our wide Open Stream with thousands of songs for The Music Mermaid to choose from. We never know what she’s up to. And we don’t ask foolish questions. All you need is a tab and a cursor. You don’t need a wallet. Your money’s no good here.

We Keep It Simple Today With Asleep at The Wheel’s Album of The Week and Our ‘A Little Bit O’ Soul’ EP, Sunday, April 10, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Today we do something we’ve been wanting to do for a while, which is to introduce you to one of the finest Texas swing bands ever to walk the earth, Asleep at The Wheel. (That is, if you haven’t already heard them. I’m sure some of you have.)

Asleep at The Wheel.

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Route 66 by Asleep at The Wheel NEW!

I can vividly remember seeing this amazing band live at The Paradise in Boston back in the day. Man, there were people dancing on the tables they were so good. We chose this album because we felt it was a great way to introduce people to them. But they have made many albums and many live appearances over their half a century in music and, while we do have some of their stuff floating around our stream, I have a vast collection about to make it’s mark on our airwaves. Stay tuned. This is just the beginning.

3:00 p.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists

Once again, we make our monthly pilgrimage to soul music mecca where you’ll hear Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Ronettes, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Nina Simone, LaVern Baker, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Sam Cooke, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and many more! That’s five uninterrupted hours of soul and R & B!

This is a total day of rest for most sane people. Those of you who “get it” are staying out of the retail fray today and taking a mental health break. This is the place to be. We’re on 24/7 uninterrupted at no charge to the listening public. What other musical outlet says that? None.

We Hit Our Midweek Stride With a Totally Motown Day Here In The Mermaid Lounge, Wednesday, March 2, 2022

Good Morning, R & B Lovers! We’re at midweek and we will feature the second airing of our new M is For Motown EP, and we will put Stevie Wonder In the Spotlight later!

Here’s your Motown programming:

10:00 a.m. M is For Motown: Various Artists

We sure do love our soul and R & B music here in The Mermaid Lounge. We have an EP called A Little Bit O’ Soul which is also quite popular with listeners, but this is a fairly new EP covering just Motown artists. This is only its second airing. You’ll hear The Spinners, The Jackson Five, The Temptations, The Supremes, Jimmy Ruffin, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Isley Brothers, Martha & The Vandellas, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Kim Weston, Tammi Terrell, Edwin Starr, The Marvellettes, Billy Preston, Mary Wells, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Eddie Kendricks, Rare Earth, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder’s name is synonymous with Motown. His first song, Fingertips, was released in 1963, and was a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 when he was just 13 years old, making him the youngest person ever to top the charts. Since then, he has become a pioneer in R & B, soul, funk, jazz, pop, and rock. He reached the pinnacle of his success in the seventies. Tune him in tonight for a real treat.

Before, in between, and after the programming, we’ve got wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. As you well know, she has impeccable taste in music and makes sure it’s playing 24/7 without commercial interruption or endless DJ chatter. What could be better?

It’s an Eclectic Monday Here in The Mermaid Lounge with The Beach Boys, Some Great R & B, and The World Between Heaven & Hell, November 22, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a rather eclectic line-up for you all today as we kick off another work week, albeit a rather short one with the Thanksgiving Holidays coming up.

We put The Beach Boys In the Spotlight today!

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beach Boys

It took me a long time to come around to The Beach Boys. It wasn’t until I heard people like Linda Ronstadt and Paul McCartney call Brian Wilson a musical genius that I started paying attention, and I realized they were right. Today we put them In the Spotlight so we can hear their blend of pop, rock, surf, and psychedelia.

3:00 p.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite R & B Stream

I probably would have about fifteen different R & B streams with different songs on each one if given the opportunity. But I don’t give myself that opportunity. On this one you’ll hear Al Green, Ray Charles, Curtis Mayfield, The Four Tops, Sam Cooke, The Staple Singers, Sam & Dave, Gladys Knight & The Pips, James Brown, Booker T & The MGs, Wilson Pickett, Jackie Wilson, Jimmy Ruffin and more!

7:00 p.m. Between Heaven & Hell: Various Artists

This was a fun one. Songs with references to either heaven or hell (or both) in either the lyrics or title (or both). Confused yet? Well, then tune this one in and hear Donovan, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, The Byrds, ZZ Top, Van Morrison, Lucinda Williams, Elvis Presley, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Fats Domino, Foo Fighters, The Grateful Dead, and more!

Come on by. People from Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Australia, Japan, Russian Federation, Canada, and points beyond are already tuned in and enjoying the sounds! You can too. For free. Every single day.

It’s Monday Again With The Band, Little Richard In the Spotlight, and Your DJ’s Favorite R & B Stream, June 28, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are again beginning another week. Monday has rolled around again, much too quickly I must admit.

The Band was one of the finest damned bands on this (or any) planet.

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Band Live at The Casino Arena, Asbury Park, New Jersey, July 20, 1976

They went from Bob Dylan’s “back-up” band to being one of the finest, most respected musical entities on this or any planet. The Band was a wonderful thing. They are legendary for a reason.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Little Richard

We not only play our favorites, but those who were rock n’ roll pioneers…those who inspired and delighted our favorites. Little Richard was a force, and he certainly is one of those early pioneers.

7:00 p.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite R & B Stream, Various Artists

One night I sat down and put this together off the top of my head. You’ll hear Al Green, Ray Charles, Curtis Mayfield, The Four Tops, The Staple Singers, Sam Cooke, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Sam & Dave, Booker T. & The MGs, James Brown, Wicked Wilson Pickett, Jackie Wilson, Jimmy Ruffin, and more!

It’s too damned hot to go out today. Why not sit back, relax and tune us in? Believe me. You cannot go wrong.

It’s Sunday Here, and It’s Time for The British to Invade Our Airwaves While The Wicked One Owns Our Album of The Week, June 13, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers across the universe! We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge on this lovely day, and it’s time for another visit from our friends from across the pond, as they say. Wilson Pickett will also give us our Album of The Week.

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: In the Midnight Hour & Other Hits by Wilson Pickett NEW!

They don’t call him “Wicked” Wilson Pickett for nothing. Wilson Pickett was a major player in establishing the genre of American soul music, with more than 50 songs making the R & B charts. And many of those songs crossed over into the Billboard Hot 100. It’s about time he’s recognized in this venue.

3:00 p.m. The British Are Coming! Various Artists

It’s time once again for us to pay respects to the British Invasion (the musical one), and to those bands who followed in their footsteps. This was one of our very first long players here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

You’ll hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, Lulu, Petula Clark, The Dave Clark Five, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Kinks, Led Zeppelin, Them, The Who, The Searchers, Queen, The Hollies, Cream, Herman’s Hermits, Dusty Springfield, and more. This is five hours of uninterrupted music!

Once again, we ask nothing except that you tune us in by clicking the link below. We don’t ask for a “subscription” or acredit card or any personal information. Nada. We do not run advertising (only a station I.D. by yours truly here and there), and we don’t employ chatty disc jockeys who think they’re stand-up comedians. Give us a shot.
