Today We Have Amy Winehouse Live, John Mayall With Our Album of The Week, and The Final Volume of Our Summer of Love Series, Thursday, June 24, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists. We’ve got some sweeeet programming lined up for today, including some “live” Amy Winehouse from Porchester Hall.

Today we feature Amy Winehouse live from Porchester Hall.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Amy Winehouse Live From Porchester Hall, London, March 8, 2007 NEW!

From our perspective, Amy Winehouse was a throwback, combining an eclectic mix of R & B, soul, and jazz, and delivering it all with a great contralto voice. We will soon be adding all of Amy’s music to our standard rotation, and are seeking out some additional live performances.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blues From Laurel Canyon by John Mayall

We are winding down on our current Album of The Week with our second to last airing. The final airing will be on Saturday. Don’t miss this great album, released just after the Bluesbreaker’s unfortunate demise.

7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Three: Various Artists

This is the third and final piece of our Summer of Love Trifecta, with Jackie Wilson, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Lulu, Buffalo Springfield, Donovan, The Bee Gees, Wilson Pickett, Vanilla Fudge, The Association, The Rolling Stones, The Supremes, The Miracles, and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Oh, wait. It’s not the weekend yet. But it’ll be here soon. In the meantime, you can still tune in our great radio station and enjoy the mix.

We’re at Midweek With Some New Creedence, Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live, and Volume Two of Our Summer of Love, June 23, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’re already at midweek and we’ve got some great music for you here today, including some live Creedence at The Fillmore!

We jump into the programming with CCR Live at The Fillmore!

Here’s your midweek line-up:

11:00 a.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, July 4, 1971 NEW!

Today we have the first live playlist from one of our absolute favorite bands here in The Mermaid Lounge, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Creedence pumped out some of the best rock n’ roll swamp music on the planet, sounding just like they were born on the bayou, even though they were four guys from Berkeley, California. This concert is another that was broadcast on KSAN.

3:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live From Ultrasonic Studios, New York, October 17, 1972

Bonnie Raitt gets together with Lowell George of Little Feat, her bassist, Freebo, and bluesman John Hammond, for a little party at Ultrasonic Studios curated and broadcast by influential rock radio station WLIR-FM on Long Island. A great version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is included.

7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Two: Various Artists

We skipped this volume yesterday because it was Tuesday Bluesday, but we have volume two here for you today, with music from The Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Manfred Mann, Jimi Hendrix, Bobbie Gentry, The Turtles, The Byrds, Stevie Wonder, The Rascals and more!

We’re kicking some ass today here in The Mermaid Lounge and would like you to tune us in. Join your friends online today from The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Spain, The Russian Federation, France, Germany (always), Italy and Portugal. All you need is a computer tab.

Steve Winwood In the Spotlight, Absolutely The Animals, and Volume 3 of Our Summer of Love Series Kicks Off The Week, Monday, March 29, 2021

Good Morning, Gang! We kick off the week with some excellent music that we’ve not circulated in a while, including the third volume of our Summer of Love Series.

We kick the week off by putting the legendary Steve Winwood In the Spotlight!

Here’s Monday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Steve Winwood

We’ve got the full magilla here, featuring Winwood’s solo career, as well as his time with Blind Faith, Traffic, and the Spencer Davis Group. This is a really excellent playlist that is not to be missed!

3:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Absolutely The Animals

This is one band that should not ever be forgotten. Formed in the early sixties in Newcastle upon Tyne, the band is considered a British R & B band, but they managed to toss in plenty of rock and psychedelic music as well. They moved to London in 1964 after hitting the big time. Eric Burdon is one badass vocalist.

7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume 3: Various Artists

We took a day off from this series yesterday, but we bring it back to close it out today. It features Vanilla Fudge, Lulu, Wilson Pickett, The Association, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Doors, The Beatles, The Bee Gees, Donovan, Jackie Wilson, The Youngbloods and more!

Tuning us in would be a great way to kick off the week, my friends. You know the drill. We won’t belabor the point.

Saturday Puts The Amazing Voice of Valerie Carter In the Spotlight, Gives Us The Summer of Love 2, Our Usual ‘Live Dead” and The Final Airing of “Let It Be…Naked,” March 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Dynamos! It’s another frenetic Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge, where we have a wide variety of great material for you to absorb over the airwaves (not really, this is Internet radio, but who’s quibbling).

Yes, Music Lovers, Valerie Carter was a hell of a lot more than just a pretty face indeed.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Valerie Carter

What can you say about a woman who inspired two songs by two of the most prolific singer-songwriters on the planet? I’m talking about That Girl Could Sing by Jackson Browne and Valerie by Steve Winwood. Others have called her the little girl with the big voice. If you don’t yet know Valerie Carter, this would be a good time for you to get to know her.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Let It Be…Naked by The Beatles FINAL AIRING!

Tune it in because tomorrow it’s gone. The Beatles’ Let It Be the way it was originally intended to be heard was finally released in 2004 under the guidance of Paul McCartney.

6:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Two: Various Artists

We heard the first volume yesterday. Today we give you the second volume in all of its historical glory, including Manfred Mann, The Grass Roots, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, Bobbie Gentry, The Queen of Soul (that would be Aretha), The Byrds, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Spencer Davis Group, and more!

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Harry Adams Field House at the University of Montana in Missoula (and that’s a mouthful), May 14, 1974 NEW!

Another one from the road from the boys.

The Lounge is jumpin’ today. We’ve got plenty of folks from Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, the Russian Federation, the UK, Norway, Poland, and Japan all tuned in. Clearly, the rest of the damned planet has their musical shit together. Where the hell are you?

We’ve Got New Bonnie Raitt, The Summer of Love, Live Dead, and Our Album of The Week on Saturday, November 28, 2020

It’s Saturday, and that means it’s like Grand Central Station for music lovers! We’ve got some great stuff today, but guess what? It’s still only a total of eight hours of programming in a 24-hour play cycle.

Bonnie Raitt. Great Fucking Voice. Badass Guitarist. Legend.

Here’s today’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. The Summer of Love, Volume One: Various Artists

Undoubtedly my time here. This was a time in music history when so many really good sounds were made. And they didn’t all sound the fucking same, or come out of the magic box.

This playlist features Petula Clark, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Yardbirds, The Spencer Davis Group, The Box Tops, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Marvin Gaye, Van Morrison, The Doors and many more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Homecoming by America

One of America’s finest albums has its final airing today. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a new album posted on the blog.

7:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt In-Studio Concert: The Wonderland Tape, August 5, 1977 NEW!

Bonnie Raitt live in-studio in August of 1977, one month after the release of her Sweet Forgiveness album — her sixth album and the one that put her on the map (although, it should have happened much earlier). It also provided her first commercial hit, Runaway, the excellent bluesy remake of Del Shannon’s classic.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Onondega County War Memorial, New York, September 28, 1976 (aka, Dick’s Picks, Vol. 20) NEW!

Yet another live classic from the world’s preeminent jam band. Even if we repeated a concert or a hundred, you’d never know. They never sound the same and you always hear something new. (BTW, there is no Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia.)

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That’s the order of the day. So, just do it.

The Summer of Love is in Charge Today With The Doors, John Mayall, and a Great Little Album That Goes Unnoticed, Thursday, August 20, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Somehow, this 1967 programming just kind of fell in my lap very late last night. Sometimes, without trying, things just kind of fall together!

Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live in 1967

If you follow this station and read this blog (something you should all be doing, by the way), you know we’re into music in all forms. Some of the stuff is fan recorded, and that’s just fine with us. This particular entry is short on quality, but big on blues history. After Clapton left the band, the void was filled by Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. They would go on to form Fleetwood Mac which, by the way, started with Peter Green on vocals and was an actual blues band. Get past the fan-recorded aspect of this and enjoy. By the way, if you listen to Ye, this is probably not your venue.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors

The second Doors release of the Summer of Love. As I have said previously, it did not disappoint after their fantastic debut, The Doors.

7:00 p.m.    The Best of The Summer of Love! Evergreen, Volume 2 by The Stone Poneys   NEW!

Speaking of two releases in one year, The Stone Poneys also accomplished that feat in 1967, with this release coming just five months after their debut. Nobody talks about this in ‘Summer of Love’ terms, but this was released right in the heart of it, June 1967. Unlike their debut album, Linda Ronstadt was prominently featured on vocals. Not surprisingly, it would be the most successful of their three releases before she exploded onto the music scene.

Linda Ronstadt left Tucson for L.A. with Bobby Kimmel (guitarist) to make music. They hooked up with a guy named Kenny Edwards, who would later be a very important cog in her back-up band. This is a portrait of Linda Ronstadt before we knew her, in a more trippy vein. Great stuff.

Good day to become a fan, people. I cannot emphasize this more: All you need is a browser and a tab. The rest is a breeze. No money. No credit card required. No personal information requested. Just free music. No shit. No bullshit. No lie.

It’s Wednesday, So It’s (mostly) Open Stream, Until Our Summer Of Love Album and The Wilburys, August 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another (mostly) Open Stream Wednesday…until we get to the  Summer of Love and The Wilburys.

Traveling-Wilburys-Crop-1480x780

Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!

All Day      Mostly Open Stream

Circulating 25,000+ songs and adding more every week!

5:00 p.m.   Best of The Summer of Love! Between The Buttons by The Rolling Stones  NEW!

Another one of those great bands with two 1967 releases (Their Satanic Majesties Request was the other). The U.S. release was very different than the UK version. Today, we give you the UK version.

7:00 p.m.    Wilbury Wednesday! The Music of the Traveling Wilburys

Simply the greatest supergroup on the planet. To them, they were just five guys who enjoyed each other’s friendship and playing music together. That’s what made what they did so great.

So, tune us in. We literally offer all this great music absolutely, positively free. There’s no surprise after you’ve signed on. We show our cards every day.
