We’ve Got John Lennon In the Spotlight, The All-Girl Revue Too, and Our Album of The Week on Thursday, August 12, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got a pretty good program today…at least we think so. It begins at 11:00 a.m. as usual. Today we open with John Lennon In the Spotlight.

Here’s today’s musical programming:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon

Today we have the music of one of the best voices in rock n’ roll as a member of The Beatles, The Plastic Ono Band, and as a soloist. He also wrote one of the greatest songs of all time.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sing It! by Marcia Ball, Irma Thomas, and Tracy Nelson

We’re winding down on this week’s album, a great blues and R & B effort by three of the most accomplished musical stylists in music. On this album they sing individually and as a group. It’s a rare treat. Don’t miss it.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too: Various Artists

We turn the evening over to the ladies. In this second volume you’ll hear Carlene Carter, Bobbie Gentry, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Amy Winehouse, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Christine McVie, Janis Ian, Mary Wells, Cilla Black, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Shawn Colvin, Susan Tedeschi and more!

Give us a listen, will ya? You have nothing to lose. Unlike some others, we aren’t free for just a week. We’re free every fucking day, all day. In fact, we run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising or screaming DJ’s. What are you waiting for?

We’ve Got Something Special Lined Up on Tuesday Bluesday, Plus Our Album of The Week Later, July 13, 2021

Good Morning, Blues Lovers everywhere! We’ve got some great music lined up for you on this Tuesday Bluesday featuring Eric Clapton and his friends!

We’ve got great blues-rock with the Crossroads Guitar Festival selections today!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: The Crossroads Guitar Festival Revisited

We’ve got some great blues-rock lined up for you today as we play selections from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. That’s nearly four hours of music with Eric Clapton and Sheryl Crow. ZZ Top, Joe Walsh, Doyle Bramhall II, Carlos Santana, Keb’Mo, Albert Lee, Jimmy Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, Susan Tedeschi, The Robert Cray Band, The Derek Trucks Band, Warren Haynes, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers

Today is the second airing of the great, new Wallflowers release, Exit Wounds. This is the first Wallflowers album in ten years, and it’s not to be missed. Songwriting is in Jakob Dylan’s blood for sure.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to tune us in (at least that’s what I’ve been told by our listeners). Today will be no exception! We run 24/7 absolutely free and without commercial interruption.

We’ve Got Lots of Open Stream Today Punctuated by Two Guitar Gods and The Ladies of Rock Later, Friday, July 9, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’re giving you lots of open stream today as we prepare for our usual hectic Saturday programming.

Later on today, The Ladies are in charge.

Here’s your line-up:

12:00 p.m. Duane Allman & Eric Clapton: Studio Jams 1-6

Here we have just over an hour of music from two of the best in the business, just hanging out in the studio together blowing the doors off the place. Enjoy.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Volume 3: Various Artists

We haven’t heard one of these for a while. The time is absolutely right. In this volume, you’ll hear Linda Ronstadt, Phoebe Snow, Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Carole King, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Melissa Etheridge, Valerie Carter, Wendy Waldman, Susan Tedeschi, Aretha Franklin, Melanie, and many more!

In between all this stuff, you’ll hear wide Open Stream today. The Music Mermaid can pick up anything she likes when we’re on that setting. She may even be inclined to pick up a playlist or two. You never know, and I am out of control when she’s in charge. That’s how it works here.

Today’s NOLA Treat? The Magnolia Sisters! We’ve Also Got Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Updated All-Girl Revue Too, on Friday, February 19, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today is a very exciting day here in The Mermaid Lounge as we feature The Magnolia Sisters, the only all-woman authentic Cajun music band. We’ve also got Creedence and our newly-updated All-Girl Revue Too.

The Magnolia Sisters, the only all-woman authentic Cajun band.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Magnolia Sisters Live at The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, May 23, 2015 NEW!

This amazing collection of women is anchored by Ann Savoy (pronounced sa’vwa), perhaps one of the most accomplished musicians on the planet that nobody ever really heard of. I urge you to read about her here, and to check out her website here. This is the kind of stuff I live for. I first heard her when she recorded with Linda Ronstadt as The Zozo Sisters. They made a brilliant Grammy-award nominated album together called Adieu False Heart. This collaboration marked the first time Savoy recorded in English. Ever since then, I’ve been on a hunt for her music and was able to score two CDs by The Magnolia Sisters. These were added to the station’s standard rotation last evening. The hunt continues until I am satisfied, as she has also recorded with her husband, her children, and with her swing band, Ann Savoy and Her Sleepless Knights.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

One of my all-time favorite bands here. It’s only fitting that we play them during our New Orleans Mardi Gras week. Here we have four guys from Berkeley, California who sound like they were born on the bayou (pun intended, of course).

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too UPDATED!

This was the second all-woman playlist we ever put together for the radio station, and I spent time yesterday updating and expanding the selection. We are continually amazed how women are ignored in the music world, and we intend to increase our focus on female singers and musicians. In this playlist, you will hear Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Linda Ronstadt, Norah Jones, Patti Smith, Mary Wells, Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Emmylou Harris, Laura Nyro, Shawn Colvin, Carly Simon and more!

This is a great day to tune us in. Authentic Cajun music is underappreciated, and to be exposed to it via an all-woman band is even better. We are free. We do not require a “subscription,” your credit card, or your personal information. All you need to do is click the link below.

Still Dwelling in The Land of COVID, But It Is Tuesday Bluesday and The Show Must Go On, February 9, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers. Some days are better than others here in The Mermaid Lounge as I ride out one of the ugliest illnesses I’ve ever had. But it is Tuesday Bluesday, and we’ve got some stuff going on.

The late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan,

Here’s today’s line-up:

2:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan: Live at Montreaux 1982 & 1985

Selections from Stevie Ray Vaughan’s two performances at Montreaux.

6:00 p.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: Selections From the Crossroads Guitar Festivals

Hear EC with Joe Walsh, Doyle Bramhall II, ZZ Top, Carlos Santana, The Robert Cray Band, Gary Clark Jr., B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.

Tune us in, people. We run 24/7 whether I’m sick or well. No commercials. No endless chatter.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday in The Lounge and We’ve Got EC’s Crossroads Guitar Festival Highlights and Moondog Matinee, on December 22, 2020

Good Morning, Blues Lovers! This is your day. Today we’ve got a great mix of material for you to hear, including sprinkles of Three-in-a-Row’s along the way from the likes of B.B. King, Janis Joplin, and others!

Eric Clapton with Derek Trucks and friends at the Crossroads Guitar Festival.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: The Crossroads Guitar Festival Revisited

Up first is nearly four hours of great music. Let’s call it a smorgasboard of songs culled from Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festivals over the years. You’ll hear the cream of the crop like, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., The Robert Cray Band, Willie Nelson, Joe Walsh, ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, Doyle Bramhall II, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Moondog Matinee by The Band

Again, it’s kismet. This week’s Album of The Week, Moondog Matinee, just happens to be The Band’s homage to R & B and the blues. It fits just perfectly with today.

In between, we have Open Stream, uninterrupted by idle chatter and commercials, and seasoned with Three-in-a-Row’s from the likes of B.B. King, Janis Joplin, The Allman Brothers Band, and Lucinda Williams.

We’ve Got Some Badass Blues Today With the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Albert King, and Muddy Waters, Thursday, September 24, 2020

Blues Lovers, we’ve got a great day on tap in The Mermaid Lounge. In between that great stream, we’ve got great blues programming.

Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks

This is your Thursday blues line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, August 20, 2012 NEW!

We have so much music still to add, but we were remiss in not putting Tedeschi-Trucks in before this. Blues Week was the perfect time to escalate our actions here, and we have. Today is our very first Tedeschi Trucks live performance and today they join the standard rotation.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King

No lie: I actually pulled this out of a hat because I couldn’t decide which one would be Album of The Week for Blues Week. I’m glad it was this one. You’re running out of time if you haven’t listened in! Our final airing will be Saturday.

7:00 p.m. Muddy Waters: The Johnny Winter Sessions 1976-1981 NEW!

“Well, one of the best things is workin’ with Muddy.” – Johnny Winter

Johnny Winter answering questions about playing the blues.

Yeah, baby. Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter, one of the most underrated blues guitarists on the planet. Except here in The Mermaid Lounge. Muddy knew it. And so did many other blues guys. Today you get to hear it.

Great day to become a #BecomeUngovernable Radio fan, people. It doesn’t cost you a penny. No shit. No lie. We’re free and we do this because we love music.
