Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to the Mermaid Lounge, where we seriously play the best music on the planet.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Wanted! The Outlaws. by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter, and Tompall Glaser.
This was basically a compilation album released in 1976 to capitalize on the “outlaw” country movement, which turned into one of the most popular country albums of all time, reaching no. 1 on the country charts and no. 10 on the pop charts. It was the first country album to be certified platinum (reaching sales of $1 million). The album also produced two singles, both featuring Waylon Jennings.
2:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon
The fantastic music from Laurel Canyon that pioneered the California sound.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beatles
9:00 p.m. Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape
Rumor has it that Stephen Stills sat down in a recording studio while Judy Collins was making a record, and simply turned on the tape and started making music himself.
Don’t delay. Join the music revolution today!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Back to a full slate of four programs today (with plenty of open stream in between 24/7), and an inspirational decision to play “Western Wall.”
Here’s your line-up:
11:00 a.m. Western Wall, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris
I hate television, and I don’t watch it anymore. I knew Linda Ronstadt, one of my all-time favorite singers, was being honored by the Kennedy Center. So, I went looking for videos out there and I found them. None, however, were as moving as the tribute that Emmylou Harris paid to her friend and frequent collaborator.
It is in that spirit that we feature Western Wall, a beautiful collaboration between these two women. For me, the most striking thing about the album is the song selection and the composers featured. The set list is up already, and the composers of the songs appear there (please scroll to the bottom of the page).
Western Wall will, for absolute certain, do a stint as our Album of the Week. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feature it today!
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan
5:00 p.m. Jimi Hendrix & Stephen Stills: “In Sessions” (1968)
9:00 p.m. Dusty in London, Dusty Springfield and the Lost British Recordings
Don’t miss it!

2:00 p.m. J. J. Cale & Leon Russell at The Paradise Studios, Los Angeles (1979)
5:00 p.m. Stephen Stills: Live at The Capitol Theater (1979)

10:00 a.m. Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape (April 26, 1968)
Here’s some musical trivia for you. Did you know that Stephen Stills taught Jimi Hendrix how to play guitar? True story, people. Rumors abound in the music world, however. And rumor has it that this little masterpiece was recorded while Stills was at a Judy Collins recording session. He simply told someone to “just roll tape.” And voilá.
1:00 p.m. Orson Welles: The Original Broadcast of War of the Worlds (10/30/1938)

The big boys of Southern rock.
