Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday and Five Hours of Uninterrupted Blues, Paul Butterfield Live at The Fillmore, and Our AOW, June 28, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Today is Tuesday Bluesday and we have our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP and some live Paul Butterfield later.

Starts at 10:00 a.m today!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

10:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

Our big, bad blues extravaganza is back for five hours of uninterrupted blues with Delbert McClinton, B.B.King, Little Walter, Ry Cooder, Slim Harpo, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J. J. Cale, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Koko Taylor, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Allman, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: American Beauty by The Grateful Dead

Our only break in the blues programming today comes with our Album of The Week by The Dead.

7:00 p.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, October 14, 1966 NEW!

We go back in the Wayback Machine for this gem. We have some vintage Paul Butterfield from 1966. A legendary blues band in a legendary venue for sure.

Got the blues? Well, get them here. The blues of the best kind, of course. We’re totally free every single day of the week, not just when we’re doing a “membership” drive. The price of membership here is using your tab and the button below. Your money is no good here.

It’s Another Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Koko Taylor In the Spotlight, and Some Live Buddy Guy with Stevie Ray Vaughan Later, On this First Day of Summer, June 21, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’re back for another Tuesday Bluesday and we have some new blues today as we add the late, great Koko Taylor to our Spotlight list. And later it’s two great blues guitarists together live.

Today we put the great Koko Taylor In the Spotlight!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Koko Taylor NEW!

There’s no doubt about it: Koko Taylor is a blues powerhouse whose musical style encompassed Chicago blues, electric blues, rhythm & blues, and soul blues. She’s often called the Queen of The Blues, just as Aretha is called The Queen of Soul and Irma Thomas is called The Soul Queen of New Orleans. Come to think of it, that would make a fucking great playlist. But I digress because today, we put Koko Taylor In the Spotlight where she belongs.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: McCartney by Paul McCartney

Our only break in our blues programming today is to hear Sir Paul’s iconic 1970 debut album. The simple beginnings of an amazing post-Beatles career that’s still going strong as he turns 80 this week.

7:00 p.m. Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Lone Star Cafe, New York, April 14, 1986

Two blues guitar masters together is a real treat, and we close out our Tuesday Bluesday programming today with them live at the Lone Star Cafe in New York.

Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge is always a great take. Make this the day to join your friends from Germany, Switzerland, Norway, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Russian Federation, Chile, Australia, Texas, New York, North Carolina, Flori-DUH and points beyond.

We Keep It Simple on Tuesday Bluesday With Our Uninterrupted Blues Extravaganza and Bobbie Gentry With Our AOW Later, May 24, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists. Our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP is back, and it’s our major musical programming feature of the day. Get on it.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and B.B. King is just one of the blues greats you’ll hear today!

Here’s your programming:

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

It’s just over five hours of uninterrupted blues music from B. B. King (and his sidekick, Lucille), Delbert McClinton, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J.J. Cale, Tedeschi Trucks Band, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Koko Taylor, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry

This is the second airing of this week’s AOW, Bobbie Gentry’s ambitious concept album about life growing up in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. In truth, Bobbie Gentry didn’t want to sing. She wanted to write songs for other people and remain in the background. Her songwriting prowess is fully on show here, as is her sultry, bluesy voice.

We’ve got Chile, the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and many points beyond already tuned in this morning. Why not join them?

On Tuesday Bluesday We’ve Got Our Big, Bad Blues EP, and The Second Airing of Bonnie Raitt’s AOW, April 26, 2022

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists

What started as a two-hour playlist expanded to a five-hour playlist. And pretty soon, there’ll be a volume two coming your way. But in the meantime, you’ll hear Delbert McClinton, B. B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Robert Cray Band, J.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to join us, no matter how you look at it. But then again, every day is a great day to tune us in. What more can we say? We can’t convince you if you don’t try.

Spend Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge With Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan, on April 12, 2022

And that’s not all! We’ve also got our second airing of our Album of The Week, Route 66, by Asleep at The Wheel. Read on for the details!

The day belongs to Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Here’s today’s Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

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

Johnny Winter is one of the finest electric bluesmen on the planet. He’s also just a great blues singer. You know a guy is great when the greats want to work with him. Muddy Waters earned Grammys for his work with Winter. This guy’s the real deal.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Route 66 by Asleep At the Wheel

We’ve got one break in the blues programming today for a little bit of Texas swing, Bob Wills style, with Asleep At the Wheel.

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

Speaking of blues greats, we’ve got another one right here. We cover his music with both Double Trouble and as a solo artist.

Hey, it’s Tuesday Bluesday. It’s a great day to tune us in. Although, frankly, every day is a great day to tune us in. Before, in between and after, we give you all that great wide Open Stream. And the Music Mermaid will be taking care of you.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Extended Blues Playlist, and John Mayall’s Album of the Week, March 22, 2022

What better way to follow up five hours of uninterrupted blues than with our new Album of The Week by John Mayall (along with some of his friends). He may have retired from the road in his 80th year, but we’re sure glad he’s still making music.

If you are into The Blues, this is definitely the place to be on a Tuesday. We are in the process of adding new blues music as we move ahead into spring and summer. Join us. It surely isn’t going to cost you anything. This morning, we’ve got Chile, Germany, the UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Brazil, Israel, Faroe Islands, Australia, and Austria tuned in. Get with it.

Today is the second airing of the musical shot heard round the world as the British Invasion came to America on February 7, 1964. The rest, as they say, is musical history.

Before, in between, and after our programming there is no silence. We run 24/7 with some of the best music on the planet and a definite devotion to rock n’ roll, folk, blues and rhythm & blues. You won’t hear rap, hip-hop, disco, or headbanging music here. We don’t have Joe Rogan either, thankfully. We are definitely not all things to all people. But, we are always free of charge. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, it’s all about the music.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With ‘The Best of Chicago Blues’ and Live Buddy Guy With Stevie Ray Vaughan Later, January 25, 2022

We’ve got nearly three hours of great Chicago Blues opening the programming today!

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan

The second airing of Bob Dylan’s brilliant Blood On The Tracks, his fifteenth studio album, was released January 20, 1975, on Columbia. The album is home to what is undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite Dylan songs, Tangled Up In Blue.

7:00 p.m. Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Lone Star Cafe, New York City, April 14, 1986 NEW!

Here we have a brand new entry to our blues collection, with two blues guitar masters. This is undoubtedly unbridled electric blues here. These two would play together several times. Another notable show as in 1989 at Buddy Guy’s Blues Legends club. We’re working on that one also.

If you’re a lover of the blues, Tuesday is your day here in The Mermaid Lounge, where two of the programs are always dedicated to the blues. Before, in between, and after, we give you wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid in charge. Just do it. It’s free.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Allman Brothers Band, and Our Album of The Week, January 11, 2022

Welcome to another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge! We’ve got some great blues guitar for you today for sure, with our Album of The Week sandwiched in between!

The second airing of Neil Young’s 41st studio album and 14th with Crazy Horse. They’re still kicking ass after all these years. Give it a listen; it’s a good one, something we’ve come to expect from them.

7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at Woodstock ’94, Saugerties, New York, August 14, 1994

Undoubtedly one of my very favorite bands of all time here, and the grand daddies of Southern rock. This is their performance at Woodstock ’94 (not to be confused with the real Woodstock).

Here we are again with listeners from around the world, including today China, Russian Federation, Portugal, Spain, Germany, the UK, Greece, Iceland, The Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, and points beyond. Join them, will ya?

We’re at Midweek With Our New ‘Ode To Morning’ EP and The Pretenders In The Spotlight, Wednesday, January 5, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have hit our midweek stride here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a brandy new playlist for you all today! We are starting a bit earlier today!

We’ve got our brand new ‘Ode To Morning’ EP up first thing this morning!

Here’s your musical landscape for today:

9:00 a.m. Ode To Morning: Various Artists NEW!

We’ve been airing our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP for a few months now. It’s about time we had our ‘Ode To Morning’ answer.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Pretenders

We haven’t aired this one in a while, and it’s high time we did. The Pretenders were formed in 1978 by kick-ass Chrissie Hynde, also the band’s primary songwriter and one hell of a guitarist. It’s a great way to close out the day’s programming

Before, in between, and after our programming, we have wide Open Stream under the thoughtful guidance of The Music Mermaid. And by the way, we won’t cost you a penny. Just push play.
