We Kick Saturday Off Early With The Final Airing of Our Album of The Week, Then Move On To Our Latest EP, Jakob Dylan In the Spotlight, and LIVE DEAD Later, December 11, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Nobody can ever call Saturdays boring here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’re kicking it off a bit early today, so let’s put the speed on.

Today we give you our latest EP called ‘The Female Species’

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys FINAL AIRING!

It’s sayonara after today for this “theoretical” album of nineteen songs that actually never came to fruition. It’s complicated. If you want to learn more about Smiley Smile before it goes away, simply click on the Album of the Week image in the sidebar!

12:00 p.m. The Female Species, Various Artists UPDATED!

It’s our newest EP and it has already been through one brief update (last night). Songs that use the terms woman, girl, or lady in either title or lyrics or both! You’ll hear Talking Heads, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, The Boogaloo Swamis, John Mayall, Hot Tuna, Elvis Presley, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, not to be confused with Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Percy Sledge, America, Roy Orbison, Billy Joel, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Bob Dylan, The Temptations, Van Morrison, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, and more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Jakob Dylan (& The Wallflowers)

Friend of The Lounge, Jakob Dylan, son of Bob, great musician, celebrated his 52nd birthday a few days ago. We thought it was only fitting that we put him In The Spotlight, both with and without his Wallflowers.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, CA, August 13, 1975

This is a rare repeat performance, but it has been well over a year since its initial airing here, so it’s back in circulation! Every show is a new show when we’re talking about The Grateful Dead.

Saturdays are always our busiest here, but we’ve still got plenty of wide Open Stream before, in between, and after this great programming. Join listeners from Austria, Germany, the UK, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Russian Federation, Cleveland, San Francisco, Virginia, France, Faroe Islands, Netherlands, and points beyond.

At Midweek, It’s Dan Fogelberg In the Spotlight, An Afternoon Trifecta-Fest, and The Beatles This Evening, Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Here we are again at midweek. It’s Truck Day at the old slave shack, but I certainly have you covered musically in my absence. The Music Mermaid will see that everything is carried out to the letter.

The Beatles touched down in the U.S. on February 7, 1964, my tenth birthday. It changed everything.

Here’s your mid-week programming:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dan Fogelberg

This guy’s name doesn’t always roll off people’s tongue, but it should. Fogelberg was a singer, songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist who, for me, provided an oasis in the dry desert of the eighties music scene (absolutely not my favorite generation of music), along with a few others, most notably Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. People can debate an artist’s “best” album all day and night because that decision is subjective and personal. For me Souvenirs was not only his best album, but one of the best albums ever put on vinyl.

Afternoon Trifectas

Starting mid-afternoon, we’ll open each hour with three-in-a-row from one artist.

3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris

4:00 p.m. Sam Cooke

5:00 p.m. Talking Heads

6:00 p.m. Van Morrison

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years

The Beatles touched ground here on my tenth birthday. Up until that point, I had been listening to my sisters’ music pretty regularly. When the Beatles landed, it changed everything for me. In fact, it changed everything in the house because my sisters became fans pretty quickly as well. This is the other half of our House Band duo, and over the next few days we’ll be playing their stuff in chronological order.

Come on, people. Join your friends. Wednesday always seems to be fairly active early in the morning: Sweden, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, Russian Federation, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and the UK are on so far. These people know good music when they hear it.

It’s Friday and We’re ‘Under The Influence’ of Some New Trifectas, and We Put CSNY In the Spotlight Later, September 24, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! For most of us it’s the week’s end…but I’ve got one more day. But it matters not, people. The music is great today. You’ll see what I mean.

The Traveling Wilburys remain the greatest supergroup of all time for us, but these guys are right behind them.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Booze. Drugs. Legal or illegal. Whatever your poison. We’ve pretty much all been under the influence at one time or another. And it has always provided a topic for the music industry. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, Donovan, Linda Ronstadt, The Temptations, The Beatles, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen, Glenn Frey, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and more.

Afternoon Music Trifecta Afternoon NEW!

We continue to build our library of trifectas and premier several new ones today.

3:00 p.m. Three Dog Night

4:00 p.m. Carole King

5:00 p.m. Van Morrison

6:00 p.m. Sam Cooke

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The Traveling Wilburys reign supreme as the best supergroup of all time. But these guys were right behind them. Yes, they should be called Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young, but we think they were at their best with Young in the fold.

Again I say, it’s a great day to tune us in. It always is. So, what the hell are you waiting for anyway? We’re 24/7. We’re free. We do not run any advertising. We do not require a subscription. And we don’t ask for your personal information.

It’s Another Saturday Here and We’ve Got Linda, Emmylou and Dolly, The Final Airing of Our Album of The Week, LIVE DEAD, and The Return of The Trifectas, August 7, 2021

Hi Gang! It’s Saturday, but that’s just another day in retail hell for me. But you? We’ve got some great stuff today, and we’re switching up the format just a hair. Don’t get all alarmed. It’s not a new pattern.

Three women who have been friends for a very long time grace our airwaves today

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris & Dolly Parton: The Complete Trio Sessions

It has been a while since we aired this, but it’s sooooo good. This collection includes outtakes that were never released, alternate versions of those that were and, of course, the actual final songs that appeared on Trio I and Trio II. We hear the term “supergroup” an awful lot, but like a lot of things in music, it is never a term applied to women.

We are applying it here in The Mermaid Lounge and have always called this brilliant musical alliance of friends a supergroup. That is what they were.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne FINAL AIRING!

This is it! This is the final airing of Browne’s brand new album, so don’t miss it. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new album for you.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Honolulu Civic Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, January 23, 1970

This is our first repeat in two years. And it’s a great one. It’ll be like brand new. But, of course, every show from these road warriors is like brand new. Am I right?

Hourly Return of the Trifectas: Various Artists

We’re tossing in some great trifectas today in between Jackson Browne and The Dead:

6:00 p.m. Little Feat

7:00 p.m. Janis Joplin

8:00 p.m. Steely Dan

9:00 p.m. Talking Heads
