It’s Tuesday Bluesday with Roomful of Blues, The Allman Brothers Band, and Joni Mitchell’s “Miles of Aisles,” July 28, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another Tuesday Bluesday and we’ve got Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight, with the Allman Brothers Band bringing up the rear a bit later. Sandwiched in between is our Album of the Week.

Roomful of Blues

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday With Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight!   NEW!

This is a great fucking band whose name is not on the tip of everybody’s tongue, in spite of their critically-acclaimed history and their 50-year recording career. I’ve been listening to them for a while and even saw them once. They are based in Rhode Island, and began in 1967 when guitarist Duke Robillard and pianist Al Copley formed Roomful of Blues. They have changed personnel over the years and have added horns, exploring the R & B and swing influence. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we are now beginning to upload their catalogue. Here’s a preview.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Miles of Aisles by Joni Mitchell

A musical review of Mitchell’s tour in support of the amazing Court & Spark album. It was Joni Mitchell’s first live album, and her first tour with a backing band — Tom Scott & The L.A. Express.

7:00 p.m.    The Allman Brothers Band Live at the Atlanta International Pop Festival, July 3 & 5, 1970

It’s like a Tuesday Bluesday double feature here today in The Mermaid Lounge. We add the grand kahuna of blues here with the brothers.

Join us, people. We’re free. No personal information required. No credit card required. And that’s because we’re totally free and outside the capitalist system in all respects. What are you waiting for?

It’s a Busy Day in The Mermaid Lounge: The Allman Brothers & Eric Clapton, Live Dead, Another Ronstadt Playlist, and The Final Airing of the AOW, Saturday, July 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a busy day here, music lovers! We’re getting ready to kick off Women’s Week tomorrow on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, so tune us in!

Allman Bros with Eric Clapton

Here’s your line up!

11:00 a.m.   The Allman Brothers Band Live With Eric Clapton, March 19, 2009

The blues from the blues masters right here. There’s a reason why these guys have lasted decades.

4:00 p.m.    Album of The Week: Déja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Crosby, Stills, Nash & (sometimes) Young, along with their 1970 masterpiece, helped me survive the disco generation. There were others. You hear them on this station daily. This is the final airing; there will be a new choice tomorrow!

7:00 p.m.    Linda Ronstadt: The Ballads   NEW!

Here’s another of those artists that I mentioned above. There should be a formal warning with this playlist: There are songs here where Ronstadt’s unparalleled voice will literally blow your doors off.

10:00 p.m.   Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Rainbow Theater, London, October 6, 1981   NEW!

Another soundboard recording of a great Dead concert, this time from the Rainbow Theater in London!

You have no idea what you are missing here: 24/7 streaming of the best music possible with no commercial interruptions, no political talk, no bullshit. All free every single day. What are you waiting for?

It’s a Tuesday Bluesday ALL Day! Joining The Allman Brothers Band are Taj Mahal in The Spotlight, and MOJO As Our Album of the Week, on June 23, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Without really planning this, we have a total Tuesday Bluesday today. If you don’t know the music of Taj Mahal, you have no idea what you’re missing. This would be a good day to find out.

Taj Mahal 68474-5

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday With the Allman Brothers Band, Recorded Live at A & R Studios   NEW!

On August 26, 1971, the legendary Allman Brothers Band hung out at A & R Studios in New York and delivered some great music. We’ve got it here for you in The Mermaid Lounge.

4:00 p.m.     Album of The Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

This album is the Heartbreakers’ ode to the blues. Tom Petty once said he envisioned all of them sitting in chairs playing and singing the blues together when they got really old. It’s a shame we will never have that experience now.

7:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal (born May 17, 1942) is the stage and recording name of singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and accomplished bluesman, Henry Saint Clair Fredericks. I have bumped into several people who don’t know who Taj Mahal is, and I actually feel sorry for them. Mahal has successfully married traditional blues with influences like Cajun, Caribbean rhythms, Latin, reggae, R & B, gospel, and calypso. He’s an amazing gift to music.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to join the ranks here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. No commercials, politicians, incessant talking, or begging for money. We are totally free and outside the system. We’re right up your alley unless, of course, you prefer to pay through the nose for your music.

The Grand Kahuna of Southern rock is back on #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

4:00 p.m.  The Band: Live on the King Biscuit Flower Hour 8-16-76   NEW!

First, they were The Hawks, backing up rockabilly singer Ronnie Hawkins. Then, they gained some notice when they helped electrify Dylan. After that, they became The Band, and the rest is musical history. The Band is Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson, and they are a force of nature.

By the eighties, Linda Ronstadt knew there was ‘something wrong’ with her voice, but none of us in the audience even noticed. Another great performance by the most accomplished, versatile, talented female singer of all time.

7:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers, Solo

Last week we featured Willie’s boy. This week, Bob’s boy. He’s no slouch either.
