It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Big, Bad Blues EP and Some ‘Live’ Stevie Ray Vaughan On The Docket, September 27, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Another Tuesday Bluesday has rolled around and we’ve got some great programming for you today that starts with five hours of uninterrupted blues of all kinds!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

10:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

We’ve got some great blues material on this station, but this is our biggest, baddest Tuesday Bluesday feature every month where we shower you with all kinds of blues from artists like Delbert McClinton, B.B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, J.J. Cale, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Koko Taylor, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Allman, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations

The only diversion from our blues programming today is for this great Album of The Week from 1969 where The Temps introduced us to a new genre called ‘psychedelic soul.’

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Bluebird Lounge, Ft. Worth, Texas, September 30, 1979

We close out today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming with a guy who left us much too soon. Stevie Ray Vaughan was, without a doubt, one of the greatest masters of blues guitar and one dominant presence on stage. See for yourself tonight.

Tuesday Bluesday generally brings out a lot of listeners, but we’re not concerned with numbers here because this is a labor of musical love. We do not charge for you to listen…no ‘subscription’ required here. That means you never have to divulge your personal information or give us a credit card number. There are things you can’t do here, like build personal playlists but, then again, that was never what radio was about anyway. When we were kids, radio was about anxiously waiting for the next song and not knowing what it was going to be. That’s what you’ve got here.

On Tuesday Bluesday We’ve Got Our Big, Bad Blues EP, and The Second Airing of Bonnie Raitt’s AOW, April 26, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re offering up five hours of uninterrupted blues by the masters and those they’ve inspired!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

What started as a two-hour playlist expanded to a five-hour playlist. And pretty soon, there’ll be a volume two coming your way. But in the meantime, you’ll hear Delbert McClinton, B. B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J. J. Cale, Koko Taylor, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Duane Allman Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Just Like That… by Bonnie Raitt

The second airing of Bonnie’s great new album, her first new album in six years. She’s all over our airwaves today!

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to join us, no matter how you look at it. But then again, every day is a great day to tune us in. What more can we say? We can’t convince you if you don’t try.

It’s Not Just Tuesday Bluesday, But It’s Fat Tuesday, and That Means We Head Down to New Orleans, March 1, 2022

You know what they say, Music Lovers! Beware the Ides of March. But today? It doesn’t get any better as Fat Tuesday falls on Tuesday Bluesday, and that means a pretty good dose of Bluesiana!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Best Louisiana Blues, Volume 1: Various Artists

I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Louisiana, New Orleans mostly, and I can tell you that the music is unbeatable. That’s where I was introduced to the Daywalkers and Chance Bushman, both local artists who have found their way into our rotation. But today, you’ll hear from the blues masters, like Clarence Frogman Henry, Little Walter, Bobby Charles, Muddy Waters Slim Harpo, Louisiana Red, Warren Storm, to name several. Don’t miss it.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Revelator by Tedeschi Trucks Band

Better still, it’s an all-blues Tuesday this week since we’re airing today’s premier electric blues bands and their debut killer album, Revelator. There’s no denying the greatness of Tedeschi Trucks, and that Derek Trucks is the finest blues guitarist on the planet right now.

7:00 p.m. The Best Louisiana Blues, Volume 2: Various Artists

We’re back in Louisiana for a spell this evening with volume two of our blues selection today. You’ll hear Big Bill Broonzy, Smiley Lewis, The Big Bopper, Earl King, Cookie & The Cupcakes, Lightnin’ Slim, Warren Storm, Frankie Ford, Joe Jones, more Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, and Clarence Frogman Henry.

I made a great Fat Tuesday lunch for a friend on Monday. You should make yourself one today and enjoy all this great music. Hell, it won’t cost you a thing but time.

Welcome to Total Blues Tuesday With Our EP and Our Album Of The Week, January 18, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s a total Tuesday Bluesday on the programming side today with five uninterrupted hours of blues to start and our Album of The Week closing out the programming.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

We’re back with five hours of uninterrupted blues music for your listening pleasure. You’ll hear B.B. King, Delbert McClinton, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Janis Joplin, The Yardbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Allman Brothers Band, Elmore James, John Mayall, James Cotton, J. J. Cale, Koko Taylor, Long John Baldry, Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Susan Tedeschi, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Marcia Ball, Bonnie Raitt, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Raising Sand by Alison Krauss & Robert Plant

The second airing of this great blues-rock collaboration by two artists who, in some folks’ eyes, are an unlikely pairing. And I have to say I was surprised when this first came out. But it works. The chemistry is there, and this is one fine album.

If you’re a blues lover, this is your day. Before, in between, and after we have all that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She is our guiding light here in the Lounge, and we treat her with reverence. Just push the button below for da blues.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’re Heading Down to Louisiana; We’ve Also Got Our Album of The Week, October 5, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’re heading down to Louisiana today for some blues, and we bring the second airing of our Album of The Week by Valerie Carter.

Louisiana Blues gives us both the jazzy New Orleans-style blues and the swampy blues encompassing the Cajun/Zydeco influence

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues, Volume One: Various Artists

There’s nothing like the Louisiana blues. You’ll hear Clarence Frogman Henry, Little Walter, Bobby Charles, Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Slim Harpo, Warren Storm, and Louisiana Red in this set. We have part two this evening.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Just A Stones Throw Away by Valerie Carter

We think this week’s Album of The Week fits in just fine on this Tuesday Bluesday because Valerie Carter’s first solo album is just a little bit of everything, including just a bit bluesy. She’s got the perfect voice for it.

7:00 p.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues, Volume Two: Various Artists

You’ll hear more of Clarence Frogman Henry, Slim Harpo, and Muddy Waters in our second set, but you’ll also hear Smiley Lewis, The Big Bopper, Earl King, Cookie & The Cupcakes, Rod Bernard, Frankie Ford, Joe Jones, and Big Boy Myles.

We’re happy to have you with us on this fine Tuesday Bluesday. We’re gearing up for Blues Week (date still TBD) and, as always, we’re on the hunt for some stuff from the vault. This would be a good day to start listening to us. Don’t you agree?

Welcome to the weekend in The Mermaid Lounge, where we have our usual slate of programming for your listening pleasure. We’ll kick it all off at 10:00 a.m. this morning.

The Beatles’ during the “Let It Be” Sessions.

11:00 a.m. Money, Honey: Various Artists

Music about money, earned, stolen, alimony, in every form imaginable, from The Beatles, Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd, Warren Zevon, J.J. Cale, Slim Harpo, Albert King, Tom Rush, Chuck Berry, The Traveling Wilburys, and more.

3:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Let It Be Sessions, Rare and Unreleased

By the time Let It Be rolled around, the Fab Four were barely talking to each other or recording together. But the Let It Be sessions prove that The Beatles were all about the music at the end of the day, and at the end of their run.

6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

Paul Simon is legend in music. He spent years with his pal Art Garfunkel, singing together for the first time at the age of sixteen. Together they made some of the best music of the sixties and seventies. Then Simon continued on as a solo artist doing the same. We feature the music of Paul Simon today, both with and without Art Garfunkel.
