Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re onto a good day here in The Mermaid Lounge with our ‘In Your Dreams’ EP starting everything off and Aretha Franklin closing out the programmed portion of the program. Did you get that?
Here’s Friday’s programming:
9:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists
Do you remember your dreams? Sometimes I do. Dreaming is a good subject for a playlist. We left a lot of songs off this one. Maybe we’ll build two eventually. For today, you’ll hear the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Aerosmith, Crowded House, the Moody Blues, Van Morrison, The Eurythmics, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Nanci Griffith, the Electric Prunes, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, The Mamas & The Papas, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, The Allman Brothers Band, Supertramp, Randy Newman, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Widespread Panic, The Youngbloods, Jimmy Ruffin, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, Patsy Cline, Joe Walsh, Bruce Springsteen, k.d. lang, Dusty Springfield and more!
3:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Kate & Anna McGarrigle
We wrap up the McGarrigle sister’s stint as our featured singer-songwriters today. Next up is Jackson Browne on New Year’s Eve.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: the Music of Aretha Franklin
Closing out the programming is the undisputable Queen of Soul. She’ll be here to serenade you as we close out the day’s programming and return to our wide Open Stream.
We’re off to the races this morning as I’ve been bequeathed a mission of mercy by my eldest child. They never really grow up, you know. It’s a myth. But I digress. Tune us in. We’re totally free of charge 24/7. Your money’s no good here.
