Good Morning, Music Lovers, and welcome to the weekend in The Mermaid Lounge and Music Emporium. Today we kick off with The British Are Coming, a great playlist that encapsulates the British Invasion and then some!
Here’s Saturday’s line-up:
10:00 a.m. The British Are Coming! Various Artists
Also known as, It Came From Across The Pond, we feature more than five hours of uninterrupted bliss from The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Peter & Gordon,, Lulu, Petula Clark, Herman’s Hermits, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers and more!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
The final airing of this week’s album, Sweet Baby James, by James Taylor. Sunday when you roll out of bed, there’s going to be a brand new Album of The Week.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Hollywood Bowl, July 21, 1974 NEW!
No two tours ever the same. No two shows ever the same. The Grateful Dead remain the master jam band.
Good day to tune us in. I know. I say that every damned day. But it’s a fact. What are you waiting for?
Yes sir! And if that isn’t enough for you, we’ve got some great three-in-a-row’s lined up today. You really need to be here. It’s better than the shit on television, especially with this real-time shitshow going on.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4: Various Artists
It’s always a good day when the ladies are starting us out. Today we have volume 4 in our series, with Carly Simon, Lucinda Williams, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Sheryl Crow, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Carole King, Joan Baez, Phoebe Snow, and many more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
We’re winding down here. After today, there’s only one more chance to hear this great album before we choose our new Album of The Week.
7:00 p.m. The Soul Men, Volume 1: Various Artists
Another open-stream-type playlist that has become popular here in The Mermaid Lounge. This one features Bill Withers, Al Green, Wicked Wilson Pickett, Freddie King, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Otis Redding, Slim Harpo, The Four Tops, Fats Domino and more.
Call me biased, but this seems like a hell of a day to tune us in. Odds are you’ll find something you’ll like. Unless, of course, you’d rather pay for what you used to get for free. You know, before money became king. If that’s the case, I can’t help you.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are still getting our winter shit together, but we’re moving forward here with some great programming as it all falls into place!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor NEW!
I remember when I first bought this album. I wore the damned thing out, I loved it so much. I still think it’s JT’s best damned album ever. It is our Album of The Week.
3:00 p.m. James Taylor & Carole King Live at The Troubadour NEW!
This was recorded in November 2007 at the Troubadour, where James Taylor and Carole King reunited on stage to celebrate the venue’s 50th anniversary. The two also originally performed at The Troubadour together in 1970.
6:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Out In The Cold, Various Artists NEW!
We’re moving into winter, so it’s fitting that we have a brand new playlist about the weather, inclement and otherwise. Hear Neil Young, Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers, The Allman Brothers Band, Johnny Rivers, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and so many more!
This is the trifecta of music nirvana. We kick off a brand new month with all-new programming. This would be a most excellent day to tune us in. We’re still free. We’re also commercial-free. We’re outside this system.
