Today It’s The Best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live, The All-Girl Revue #4, and Our Album of The Week, Thursday, June 10, 2021

Here we go! We’re past the hump and heading for the end of the week. We’ve got a great line-up for you guys today here in The Mermaid Lounge, starting with one of our House Bands!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Deb’s Stream: The Best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live

We work really hard to make sure we don’t compete with Tom Petty Radio. It’s really hard not to overplay these guys, but we think we keep it in control pretty well. (We have the same problem with The Beatles and Linda Ronstadt.)

This entry is totally subjective. There are no experts. Some of my Petty fan friends and I came up with this list. These are the songs that we think are the best that they’ve done on stage, and we confess that there is one entry in here from Mudcrutch that could not be denied a place on this list. What we’ve got here is a playlist of just over two hours of the best damned live stuff we’ve ever heard from one of the most amazing live bands ever.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell

We’re winding down on this week’s album. This is the next to last airing, with the final coming sometime Saturday. Get it in while you can because there will be a brand new album come Sunday when you roll yourselves out of bed.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4: Various Artists

We have five of these now, and we haven’t heard volume four for a while, so this is a good time to get it in. You’ll hear Carly Simon, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, The Shirelles, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, and more!

Blah. Blah. Blah. Here’s where we go into the hard sell, if that’s what you want to call it. We don’t make a dime on this radio station. In fact, it’s paid out of my pocket. It’s truly a labor of love. I’m sharing my personal music collection, which is quite substantial. (I’m pretty old and have been listening to and buying music forever, so it should be.) It’s what we call a labor of love that runs 24/7 and asks for nothing in return…except, of course, that you tune us in.

We Open With the Original All-Girl Revue, Move to Jackson Browne Live at The Main Point, and Close With the Iconic Beatles Rooftop Concert, Friday, April 9, 2021

We’re back with programming today, but just in the right amounts. We’ve got a new “live” event today as we bring in some new material for the spring and summer, and we’ve added some new music, which we’ll tell you about in a separate blog entry later today.

The Beatles Rocked the Apple Rooftop Back in ’69 for a glorious 42 minutes.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Original All-Girl Revue: Various Artists

The very first “all-girls” list we ever put together is back with Carly Simon, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Lulu, Janis Joplin, Mary Wells, Joan Baez, Melanie, Roberta Flack, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, The Supremes, Fontella Bass, Stevie Nicks, and more!

3:00 p.m. Jackson Browne Live at The Main Point, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, August 15, 1973 NEW!

This is a short (by today’s standards, of course) sweet, spirited set by Jackson Browne along with brilliant multi-instrumentalist David Lindley which took place at the now-defunct Main Point, a small, intimate venue.

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Complete Apple Rooftop Concert, January 30, 1969

For 42 glorious minutes, The Beatles thrilled the lunchtime crowd with an impromptu concert on the rooftop of Apple headquarters at 3 Saville Row before the Metropolitan Police shut them down for excessive noise. Billy Preston joined them on keyboards.
