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.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan

What would Tuesday Bluesday be without Stevie Ray Vaughan? This playlist covers his career as a solo artist as well as his time with Double Trouble, and also includes both studio and live selections.

Great day to tune us in. (Don’t I say that every damned day?) But hey, I’m not lying. We’re totally free, uninterrupted by commercial endeavors, and we’re not going to ask you for any personal information. We don’t require a mandatory paid subscription. This is all about the music.

Badass Guitarists, The Jerry Garcia Band, and Our Album of The Week Highlight The Day, Thursday, April 15, 2021

Good Morning to all! It’s Thursday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got new music from the Jerry Garcia Band today, along with the handiwork of some of the best guitarists in music!

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Jerry Garcia Band!

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Badass Guitarists, Volume One: Various Artists

Today we begin with those badasses on guitar. You’ll hear the handiwork of Bonnie Raitt, Dickie Betts, Mike Campbell, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Fogerty, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Lowell George, Steve Winwood, Joe Perry, and many more.

3:00 p.m. The Jerry Garcia Band Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, Massachusetts, December 2, 1977 NEW!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hotcakes by Carly Simon

Once again, allow me to reiterate that this is one of the best albums ever made, and certainly my favorite by Carly Simon. Recorded while she was pregnant with her first child, it resulted in two hits: Mockingbird and Haven’t Got Time For The Pain. But personally, I think the best song on the album is Forever My Love.

Here we are again, telling you to tune us in. We’re not for profit radio. Seriously. And we ask you for no credit cards or personal information. Sound crazy? What can I tell you.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Johnny Winter, Albert King, and Stevie Ray Vaughan! In the Middle, It’s Our Album of The Week, April 13, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are on another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got a great selection for you today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York City, September 5, 1978

For reasons unknown to me, sometimes this guy is overlooked by blues music lovers (but not his peers, like Muddy Waters). He is never overlooked here in The Mermaid Lounge either, and today we feature him live at The Bottom Line.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hotcakes by Carly Simon

The second airing of our Album of The Week, one of Carly Simon’s biggest sellers and for good reason. It’s definitely our favorite Carly Simon album here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

7:00 p.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session, December 6, 1983

A great session recorded live at CHCH-TV Studios in Ontario, Canada, when Stevie Ray Vaughan was 29 years old, and Albert King was in his sixtieth year. Two masters at work.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a good day to tune us in, of course. But then again, any day of the week is a good day to avail yourself of our services. We are not-for-profit radio. Period. End of story.
