It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We Have a Heartbreakers’ Blues Playlist, Our AOW, and Robert Cray with Stevie Ray Vaughan, October 12, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great stuff today for Tuesday Bluesday as we return to celebrating Tom Petty Month.

We’ve got some great guitar blues for y’all today with Mike Campbell, Robert Cray, and Stevie Ray Vaughan on tap!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

We continue on with Tom Petty features during Tom Petty Month. Tom Petty always envisioned The Heartbreakers sitting around on chairs playing the blues in their old age. Life (and death) has a way of getting in the way of things, but the band made some great blues songs while they were together. We’ve got them here today.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon

Our second airing of this great album that doesn’t have a bad song on it. Forget the hits, although they were great enough. The album also has Accidentally Like a Martyr, Nighttime in the Switching Yard, and my favorite, Lawyers, Guns and Money.

7:00 p.m. The Robert Cray Band with Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Club Redux, Dallas, TX, January 21, 1987

Two great bluesmen here for your listening pleasure. What more could you ask for?

Another day of music brought to you by nobody of commercial importance. We don’t have sponsors. We don’t accept advertising. We just play music all day and all night without any interruption. You ought to give it a shot. It’ll change your view of radio.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday with Eric Clapton & Friends, Stevie Ray Vaughn “Live” and Our Album of The Week, September 28, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We have a great blues line-up today sandwiched around our latest Album of The Week.

Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Joe Cocker on stage in 1983

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, & Joe Cocker, Live at Royal Albert Hall, UK, September 20, 1983

Back in 1983, a bunch of musicians got together to play a benefit concert at Royal Albert Hall to raise money for multiple sclerosis. The event was organized by Ronnie Lane of the band Faces, who was a victim of the disease himself. The result was a great set of 18 songs of straight-up blues and blues-rock numbers. Even better, Clapton, Page and Beck were all once lead guitarists for The Yardbirds, but this was the first time they’d ever been on stage together. Many other great musicians were also involved in this benefit. You can read more about it here.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume One

Back for the second airing of this great album from the world’s premier supergroup. You can learn how the Wilburys came to be right here.

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

There’s not much more you can say about Stevie Ray Vaughan that hasn’t already been said. He was on the road continually during 1978 and 1979, and one stop was The Bluebird Lounge. It is believed that the owner of the place, Robert “Bluebird” Ealey was sitting in on guitar and vocals.

Hell, it’s Tuesday Bluesday here in the lounge. Before you know it, we’ll be coming up on Blues Week here (sometime during the winter when we need it most). We’re out there sourcing some new stuff now. This is a great time to acclimate yourself to our station.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With The Second Half of Our Allman Brothers Extravaganza, Stevie Ray Vaughan In the Spotlight, and Our Album of The Week Sandwich, August 31, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Welcome back to another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got the second half of our Allman Brothers blues extravaganza today, and some SRV a bit later.

We’ve got Stevie Ray Vaughan In the Spotlight a bit later

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

10:00 a.m. Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues: The Allman Brothers Band NEW!

This is the second half of what we began last week. We start an hour earlier today because it’s a bit longer than the first set. Essentially, we have round two of the brothers playing traditional blues songs. It’s a treat. Don’t miss it.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan

The second airing of this great album. We inject a bit of good old rock n’ roll (with a hint of jazz, of course) in the middle of all those blues.

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

Generations of guitar-loving kids are still discovering the magic of this guy. He has been described as a man of simple taste with impeccable style. We cover his music from both his time with Double Trouble and as a solo artist.

It goes without saying that before, in between, and after, we have open stream as determined by The Music Mermaid. She also has simple taste but impeccable style. We run 24/7 completely free of charge. All you need to do is pull up a computer tab. (Oh yeah, you can also tune us in on your phone.)

Here’s Wednesday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Neville Brothers NEW!

This one has been on my list for a quite a long time and it’s finally here. I got to see these guys just one time during one of my business trips to New Orleans. They were live at Tipitinas, a great venue, by the way. Today we have them as a band, some of them solo, and we also have The Meters. Art Neville was the founder of both The Neville Brothers and The Meters. They are truly a magical, musical family.

Once again, please give us a shot. We’re all about the music because this is a labor of love. We make no profit whatsoever. That is definitely not why we’re here.

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:

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.
