We’re at The Midweek Point and I Want You To ‘Repeat After Me’ Once Again, Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Good Morning, Music Masters! Here we are again at the midweek point, and we’ve got some great new music for you today. This includes our second volume of ‘Repeat After Me’ (we’ll also play the first volume again to kick off the day), and some new Trifectas in the afternoon.

Today we have volume two of our ‘Repeat After Me’ series!

Here’s today’s great line-up:

11:00 a.m. Repeat After Me, Volume One: Various Artists

We bring back the first volume which we played for the first time on September 4. To repeat, this series of playlists gives you the original song plus a reboot by a different artist. Some of the people you’ll hear singing the same songs are The Rolling Stones & Otis Redding, Barrett Strong & The Beatles, Martha and The Vandellas & Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne & Gregg Allman…you get the idea.

The set list for this one is in the blog under Playlists. Just scroll to the bottom.

This afternoon we have some brand new Trifectas we’ve put together for you. Here they are:

3:00 p.m. The Lovin’ Spoonful

4:00 p.m. Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

5:00 p.m. Dusty Springfield

6:00 p.m. The Mamas & The Papas

7:00 p.m. Repeat After Me, Volume Two: Various Artists NEW!

Here’s the brand new volume of this playlist series. In this particular volume, you’ll hear the original song and the reboots from Eddie Cochran & The Who, The Left Banke & The ZoZo Sisters (that’s Linda Ronstadt and Ann Savoy to those who don’t recognize the name), Bob Marley & Eric Clapton, Del Shannon & The Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan & Johnny Winter, to mention just a few.

The set list will be up under the Playlist section. Again, just scroll to the bottom!

We have several people today from the U.S. already who are joining their compadres from Spain, Italy, Germany, the UK, France, The Russian Federation, Japan, The Netherlands, Denmark, and Switzerland. Get on it, people. You cannot go wrong.

Saturday Delivers A Great New Playlist, NOT The Album of The Week, The Actual Album of The Week, and LIVE DEAD, September 4, 2021

Here we are with our usual frenetic Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we wish you a great Good Morning. We’ve got some really cool stuff on tap, including a brand new playlist called Repeat After Me.

Today we’ve got a great new playlist of remakes and reboots along with the originals!

Here’s your Saturday line-up!

11:00 a.m. Repeat After Me: Various Artists NEW!

I was driving home from work when this idea came into my head and I wondered what the hell took me so long. I also have to tell you that I somehow feel this is simply the first volume. I thought of even more this morning. Here we have some great songs that have also been the beneficiaries of great remakes. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that is certainly the case in the music world. The best want to remake and pay tribute to the best songwriters and performers who have inspired their own music.

The playlist for this volume will be in the blog under the “Playlist” tab. Just click on it and scroll to the bottom.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of this great album. Get on it while you can. Tomorrow, we’ve got a brand new album to feature, and it’s one that just got its 50th Anniversary edition to boot!

7:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Surf N’ Burn by The Blue Stingrays

Last summer we added surf music to our repertoire, but we’ve not given it much of an audience this summer, regrettably I might add. As we work on the Labor Day Weekend, we’re going to play Surf N’ Burn by The Blue Stingrays. There’s a story behind this one. This band made one album, although the liner notes called them the premier surf music band of the sixties (when surf music first burst onto the music scene). The band is actually Mike Campbell and Ron Blair (of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), and Randall Marsh (drummer for Mudcrutch, another Tom Petty band). The did this anonymously because they didn’t want to detract from The Heartbreakers meteoric rise of 1997, the year the album was released. They didn’t particularly care if it even sold a copy (which it did; I have one). They did it because they love the sound of surf music.

The album was just picked up and re-released a few weeks ago. If you are a lover of guitars (and of Mike Campbell, simply one of the best guitarists on the planet), then there’s something about surf guitar music that can’t be explained. Tune it in and see for yourself.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, California, July 1, 1973

This is one of the few repeat performances we’ve played since starting LIVE DEAD three years ago, but it also hasn’t been aired since 2019. It’ll be like new, just like every live performance The Dead has done. We have several brand new never-before-played concerts in the bucket. We just need to get them ready.

Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge is pretty busy, and this one is no different. Give us a shot. We’ve got listeners from all over this morning, including Italy, Israel, Denmark, Sweden, the UK, France, Germany, The Russian Federation, Romania, Spain and even The Republic of Korea. We’re sitting here waiting on the U.S. (although we do have someone from North Carolina and someone from Texas this morning). Tune us in. Get with the damned program.
