Good Day, Music Lovers! Today we have wonderful run of musical programming planned around all that open stream stuff. Don’t miss it.
Here’s the musical landscape today:
9:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Last DJ NEW!
Yeah, we squeezed this one in after realizing that The Last DJ was released 18 years ago on October 8, 2002. This is a great album. If anybody is looking for just a great collection of great rock n’ roll that talks about days gone by and how music on the airwaves used to be, this is it.
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
Mr. Lennon would be 80 years old today had he not had the misfortune to meet Mark David Chapman. We celebrate his birthday today In The Spotlight, both with and without his mates.
3:00 p.m. Going to Surf City: Various Artists
As the temperature drops here in New England, we take a trip back to summer when we premiered the addition of surf music to our standard rotation. With Jan & Dean, The Beach Boys, The Blue Stingrays, The Ventures, and more!
7:00 p.m. Petty Theft: The Covers
We gave you the first playlist of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers covers back at the beginning of Petty Month. This is our second playlist of covers selected right here by our DJ in The Mermaid Lounge.
What in the bloody hell are you waiting for, people? You’d think we were asking you for your name, rank, and credit card number. We don’t. Ever. All you need to do is pull up a tab.

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have a great line-up today from The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re firing on all cylinders right from the start!
Here’s Thursday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Band: Live at The Casino Arena, Asbury Park, New Jersey, July 20, 1976
The started as Bob Dylan’s back-up band, and the rest is history. The Band left us an amazing volume of just plain great fucking music, from their hits to their deep cuts. That’s why we love them here in The Mermaid Lounge.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles
No matter who you talk to about Beatle albums, the consensus is that this was a vast turning point for the band from all perspectives.
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too: Various Artists UPDATED!
We’re back with an updated version of The All-Girl Revue Too. Hear Norah Jones, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Laura Nyro, Chi Coltrane, Etta James and more!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Wide-Open Wednesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re circulating 25,000+ plus songs, while we add even more today! A bit later on, we’ve got a visit from The Beatles.
Here’s our one and only bit of programming today!
6:00 p.m. The Beatles’ Complete Apple Rooftop Concert: January 30, 1969
On a cold, windy day in January Beatle fans in London were treated to a free, impromptu concert by the band from the top of Apple Records headquarters at 3 Saville Row. People were hanging out windows and stood on balconies. Down below, the traffic came to a halt. A splendid time was guaranteed for all.
Tune us in today and see why we’re different. No credit card or personal information required. Just pull up a tab and chill.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a brand new season as we roll into September! Even better, we kick it off with Tuesday Bluesday!
Here is your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George, John Hammond & Freebo, Live at Ultrasonic Studios, October 17, 1972 NEW!
Some of the best stuff we have is archival discoveries and, while they may not exactly be technically perfect, it doesn’t matter. A young Bonnie Raitt is hanging out with some friends here an they are conducting a textbook super session. Her youthful versions of Jackson Browne’s Under the Falling Sky and Chris Smither’s Love Me Like a Man are really great, but her version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is the most amazing.
When you toss in Lowell George, the grand master of Little Feat, John Hammond and Freebo, you’ve got a super group. Who is Freebo? His real name is Daniel Friedberg, and he’s legend in my generation, a super studio musician who has spent a lot of time supporting Bonnie Raitt. Freebo has also played with Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Aaron Neville, John Mayall and many other musicians.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles
The Revolver album signaled what was to come from the Beatles. It was a giant LEAP forward for the band in so many areas. This album is widely considered the most influential album in modern music. Find out why by tuning in.
7:00 p.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session, Recorded Live at CHCH-TV on December 6, 1983
Two blues masters were recorded live at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, when SRV was 29 years old and King was 60. You can read more about this legendary blues session right here.
Come on, people, it’s a great time to tune us in. We’re here. We’re free. We ask for nada, and we operate totally outside the system. Oh, yeah, we also play great music — rotating more than 25,000 songs — on a 24-hour basis. Non-stop musical nirvana.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re on our final week of The Summer of Love, so we’re focusing on the Sixties today.
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
1:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Younger Than Yesterday, The Byrds NEW!
This was The Byrds’ fourth studio album, released in February of 1967. With this album, they continued their foray into psychedelic music…with a touch of jazz thrown in for good measure. Chris Hillman began to take the spotlight, revealing himself to be a formidable singer-songwriter.
4:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformative Years
The Beatles also moved into the world of psychedelic music in the latter half of the sixties. The album Revolver was really the album that catapulted the band forward in this direction. This is a great playlist.
8:00 p.m. Janis Joplin Live at Winterland 1968
To close out the evening’s festivities, we hear from one of the most important, influential female rockers of the sixties live on stage at Winterland, Janis Joplin.
This is, like all the other days, a great day to tune us in. We’re no bullshit all day, every day. No hidden charges. No credit card required. No personal information requested. No advertising and no fucking politicians.
