Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s time to bid a fond farewell to March, and we’re going there in style as we closed out the month with a Wilbury Wednesday!
Here’s today’s line-up!
12:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Complete Traveling Wilburys Catalogue
It’s Wilbury Wednesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re giving you a treat today with the complete Traveling Wilbury catalogue in our spotlight feature. Music lovers consider the Wilburys the best ‘supergroup’ of all time, and we wholeheartedly agree.
6:00 p.m. Out In The Cold: Various Artists
There’s nothing like a bit of the weather here in the studio, and we’re kicking out March in style with Linda Ronstadt, Martha & The Vandellas, Johnny Rivers, the Allman Brothers Band, Bill Withers, Joni Mitchell, Creedence Clearwater Revivial, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Dr. John, James Taylor, The Association, Bob Dylan and more!
Wrapped around all this is our great Open Stream, entirely controlled by the Music Mermaid. Tune us in. We’re free. We run no advertising. We make no profit. We ask for no personal information. What more do you want?
Good Morning, Music Maestros! Here we are kicking off another week from The Mermaid Lounge at #BecomeUngovernable Radio! We’ve got some great programming today mixed in with all that Open Stream!
Here’s today’s musical line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Association Live at The Salt Palace, Salt Lake City, Utah, April 3, 1970 NEW!
Here we are with one of the more underrated bands of the sixties. I think The Association is one of the most intriguing bands of sixties, hard to pin down, and with a really nice sound. I wasn’t intending on a Haiku. Sorry.
3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 06 House of Horror NEW!
Okay, here’s the deal: A mad scientist steals a gorilla from the zoo. (How is that possible?) There’s also a brain transplant involved, but I’m not giving you the details. By now, you are so on the edge of your seat that you just have to tune this one in. While I won’t reveal the details, I will say that I think The Three Stooges also did this episode.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Lovin’ Spoonful
“In a coffee house Sebastian sat, and after every number they’d pass the hat…” Those are the lyrics from The Mamas & The Papas song, Creeque Alley, the story of the Laurel Canyon days. They also talk about McGuinn (The Byrds) and McGuire (Eve of Destruction), but Sebastian is John of The Lovin’ Spoonful, a great little sixties jug band. Those were the days.
Well, you have a lovely day in spite of the fact that it is Monday. You could always improve your attitude by tuning us in. We’re free. We don’t ask for your info or your credit card number. And we certainly don’t want your personal details. We’ve got nothing to sell you.
