Today’s Journey is To Laurel Canyon For A Musical Trip Back In Time, and ‘Live’ Allman Brothers Later, Friday, July 1, 2022

Good Morning, Folks! We are kicking off a brand new month in fine fashion here with our ‘Music From Laurel Canyon’ EP and some ‘live’ Allman Brothers Band bringing up the rear.

Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash hanging out in Laurel Canyon

Here’s Friday’s lineup:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

A trip in the Wayback Machine with The Music Mermaid (instead of Mr. Peabody) to the 60s and 70s and some of the best musical cross-fertilization on the planet as country-rock was born. You’ll hear The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, Buffalo Springfield, The Beach Boys, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Doors, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, The Monkees, CSNY, Manassas, John Mayall, The Eagles, J.D. Souther, Harry Nilsson, Canned Heat, Carole King, James Taylor, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Souther-Hillman-Furay and more!

7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at The Atlanta International Pop Festival, July 3 and 5, 1970

The Brothers are here for the holiday weekend, although I’m not the patriotic type to begin with and am now less so in the land of lost liberty. Nevertheless, we welcome the Allman Brothers back to the Lounge. We have’t played this one in a bit.

It’s going to be hot as Hades here today, although they did remove the cactus warning from my phone. Once you get past 85 degrees with me, it’s ugly. But it’ll be cool here in The Mermaid Lounge and you can feel free to kick back with some great music today!

It’s Wide Open Stream Today Save For Our Tribute To Dusty Hill, Friday, July 30, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers. We’ve got a wide open stream all day today except for our tribute to Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, our first open stream day in a while.

Today, we put ZZ Top In the Spotlight as we remember bassist Dusty Hill.

Here’s Friday’s line-up:

10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of ZZ Top NEW!

Today we put ZZ Top In the Spotlight in tribute to Dusty Hill, who passed away in his sleep on July 27 at the age of 72. ZZ Top was formed in Houston, Texas in 1969 by guitarist and vocalist Billy Gibbons. After a few personnel changes, drummer Frank Beard and bassist Dusty Hill joined in 1969 and 1970 respectively. This line-up remained constant until Hill’s death the other day.

That is our only programming for the day. The rest of the day is wide Open Stream at the discretion of The Music Mermaid, who has impeccable taste, I might add. We’re free 24/7. We don’t ask for your credit card number of personal information. And we don’t disturb your music with advertising.

Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Allman Brothers Band Highlight Our Tuesday Bluesday, June 29, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a great blues line-up in store for you. And let’s not forget the second airing of our Album of The Week.

Today’s live performance isn’t from the Orpheum in Boston, but I could not resist this photo. I was at this show! Now I am on the hunt for this live performance!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, Austin, Texas, April 15, 1984

SRV was riding high at this time and it shows. Today’s performance is from the Austin Opera House, and we know you’re going to love it.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sister Kate by Kate Taylor

The second airing of Sister Kate is upon us. We understand if you lost sight of Kate Taylor in the early 70s, with both James and Livingston making records. But Sister Kate is a fine album, and Kate Taylor is a great talent in her own right.

7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at A & R Studios, New York, August 26, 1971

No matter what anyone tells you, The Allman Brothers Band are the granddaddys of Southern rock, and certainly the finest purveyors of blues-rock on the planet. Today we have them live at A & R Studios.

I don’t know what the weather is where you are, but outside The Mermaid Lounge it’s far too hot to venture out. Some of us have no choice, but if you do, then this is the place to be. Tune us in.

The Allman Brothers Live, Open Stream with Three-in-a-Row, and Our New ‘By The Numbers’ Playlist, Monday, November 2, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Welcome to another Monday. About the only good thing you can say about it is that the music remains a constant here.

The Allman Brothers Band

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at A & R Studios, New York, Recorded Live on August 26, 1971

The brothers converge in A & R Studios for a live radio broadcast.

We’ve got an afternoon of Open Streaming, and some new Three-in-a-Row interludes built in.

6:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: By The Numbers Playlist, Various Artists NEW!

It seems, somehow, that all of life is a numbers game these days. And judging by the number of songs with numbers in them, it has been going on for quite some time.

Hear Mudcrutch, Chicago, Asleep at the Wheel, Eddie Cochran, J.J. Cale, Jefferson Airplane, The Mamas & The Papas, The Beatles, The Temptations, The Byrds, James Taylor, Roseann Cash, The Doors, and more!

Speaking of numbers, there are no numbers associated with #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We are free. No advertising. No bullshit. No politicians. Nobody with a word salad problem. A great day to tune us in is just about any day.
