We’ve Made It To Friday With Our Brand New TLA Playlist, and Etta James In the Spotlight Later, June 11, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s finally Friday! Of course, if you are a retail slave, you’ll know that work never ends. Because in the eyes of most people, their freedom has finally been returned in the name of capitalism. I, personally, equate the lifting of the blue laws here as slavery. Nevertheless, we have some excellent music for you today.

We put Etta james In The Spotlight later today.

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m. True Love Always: Various Artists NEW!

Earlier in the week, we offered up our Nothing But Heartbreak playlist, so it’s only fair that we create one for the true believers in true love. Today we have a few hours of some of the greatest love songs ever made in the annals rock n’ roll. Enjoy your delusional selves.

You’ll hear Maria Muldaur, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Tom Petty & The Heatbreakers, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye & Tammy Terrell, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Mudcrutch, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, Warren Zevon, The Beach Boys, Guy Clark, Tom Rush and more!

The set list will be posted under the Playlist tab before air time. Check it out.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James

We haven’t heard from the sublime Etta James for a while. As I was going down our playlists last night, it struck me that this would be a perfect day. So, here you have Etta James In the Spotlight, where she certainly deserves to be.

In between all of this, we’ve got a continual Open Stream of some of the best music on the planet from some of the most legendary artists on the planet. (Not to mention some folks who should have been legendary, but fell through the cracks somehow.) We’re free. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising and chatty DJ’s. Best of all, we don’t ask you for personal information. Visit us below.

It’s a Scortcha Here Outside The Mermaid Lounge, and We’ve Got a Hot Line-up As Well With A New Album of The Week and Our Original Sixties Rotation, Sunday, June 6, 2021

Good Morning, Summer Lovers! It’s going to be 95 degrees outside The Lounge here today, and it’s a good thing we’ve got AC crankin’ because it’s pretty hot inside as well!

Today we feature The Original Sixties Rotation!3:.m.

Here’s your Sunday funday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell NEW!

This fantastic 2013 release won the Grammy Award for the Best Americana Album. It was Harris’ 13th Grammy. The album itself was her twenty-seventh studio release, and Crowell’s tenth. Although they originally met in 1974, it took them until 2012 to record an album together. I saw the tour promoting this album, and the musical chemistry between Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell was amazing.

It only took the pair two years to release a follow up album called The Travelin’ Kind, and we’ll be featuring that as a future Album of The Week.

3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

This was the very first playlist we ever put together back when we started, and it features The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, Johnny Rivers, Bobbie Gentry, Little Eva, The Searchers, The Who, The Supremes, Bob Dylan, The Hollies, The Turtles, Petula Clark, Barry McGuire, The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Kinks, and many more! More than five hours of uninterrupted musical nirvana!

It’s hotter than Hades out there, and I’m hunkering down here in The Lounge with some good music. We won’t cost you a damned penny. That’s no lie. We’re not going to ask you to subscribe. And we’re certainly not going to sell you anything. Why not join your friends from around the world and do the same?

Derek & The Dominos Live, NOT The Album of The Week, and What’s In A Name? Friday, June 4, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday once again and we are giving you something old and something new, and commemmorating a great album release today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, New York City, October 23, 1970 NEW!

On October 23 and 24, 1970, Derek & The Dominos played two shows at the famed Fillmore East. We have the first night’s performance here today.

3:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band NEW!

This is not a regular feature of our station, but we do it once in a while when the occasion calls for it. Today, we are running this in commemoration of the release of one of the most incredible albums of all time, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was released fifty-four years ago on June 2, 1967.

This was The Beatles’ eighth studio album, and was the first where the track listing was the same on both the US and UK version. It was the first album to have all of the lyrics printed on the cover. Musicologists recognize this album as the first concept album ever. The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK charts, and 15 on top of the US charts.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name, Various Artists

One of our most popular playlists is up later this evening, What’s In A Name. Songs with names in either the title or the lyrics. You’ll hear The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, The Velvet Underground, The Band, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and many more.

We have a great line up today sprinkled throughout all of our great Open Stream, and you should take advantage of that if you haven’t spent time listening in yet. We are totally free and run 24/7.

Open Stream Followed by Don McLean In The Spotlight, and ‘Money, Honey’ Later, Wednesday, June 2, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We kick off the day with wide Open Stream until early afternoon, when we put Don McLean In the Spotlight!

We kick off today’s programming with Don McLean In the Spotlight!

2:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Don McLean NEW!

Who can forget that eight-minute anthem called American Pie? When I was young, we played it over and over again, lamenting the loss of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and The Big Bopper. But Don McLean was a singer-songwriter who was so much more than that song. Over his career, he amassed 40 gold and platinum records. Today we put him In the Spotlight for you.

7:00 p.m. Money, Honey: Various Artists

This is a great playlist talking about what appears to be everyone’s favorite topic: MONEY. Ask Elvis Presley, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, J. J. Cale, Slim Harpo, The Beatles, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, The Steve Miller Band, Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Barrett Strong, Van Morrison, The Guess Who, and many more!

We’re sitting here in The Mermaid Lounge eagerly awaiting your arrival. What are you waiting for?

Mudcrutch Monday Madness and McCartney Dominate Our Programming On May 31, 2021

Here we are on another Monday in The Mermaid Lounge. We haven’t had a Mudcrutch Monday in quite a while, according to my calendar. It’s about that time.

It’s Mudcrutch Monday here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s today’s line-up:

10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul McCartney

We kick off Monday with Macca Music as a founding member of The Beatles and Wings, and as a solo artist. His career spans more than five decades, making him a living legend.

3:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Monday Madness

Mudcrutch is known as Tom Petty’s “other” band, but it was actually Tom Petty’s first band…the band that left Gainesville for L.A., the band that morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. When Tom Petty brought the original Mudcrutch back together in 2008, it wasn’t just a diversion for him. Mudcrutch made some serious music, and we’ve got the entire catalogue here today.

It’s Memorial Day here and the only thing we’re celebrating today is music. No parades. No flag waving. None of that nonsense. Just music. Tune us in if you’re hanging around looking for something to do. You won’t regret it.

Jeff Lynne’s ELO In the Spotlight, Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue, and Songs About Location, Location, Location, Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The Mothership hovers arouond 11:00 a.m. this morning!

Here’s your mid-week line-up!

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Electric Light Orchestra

It has been a long time between airings for this playlist, so we are more than overdue for some of Jeff Lynne’s ELO. Before Jeff Lynne (and after, actually) was a Wilbury and a producer of Tom Petty’s albums, he was the front man for a band called The Move (we will play some material from them later this week), and ELO. We put his time with ELO In The Spotlight today.

3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan Live in ’75: The Rolling Thunder Revue

We continue our celebration of the birthday boy’s 80th year with a selection of Rolling Thunder Revue live music, vintage 1975. Later this week, we go back even further into the archives.

7:00 p.m. On The Map: Various Artists NEW!

They say location is everything, and we’re here to prove it with a playlist of songs with prime locations either in the title or in the lyrics. This is a fun one, and some of the musicians you’ll hear are Linda Ronstadt, Tom Petty, Tom Rush, Glen Campbell, Creedence Clearwater Revival, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, The Grateful Dead, and The Beatles.

The playlist will be up under the Playlist tab before 7:00 p.m. All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom!

We’ve got new music today, so that’s always a good day to give us a shot. I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Join your friends from around the globe for some 24/7 totally free, outside-the-capitalist system music. You won’t regret it.

Taj Mahal In the Spotlight, Our New ‘Travelin’ Fever’ Playlist Later, and Our Album of The Week In Between, Thursday, May 20, 2021

Good Morning, Music Fans! Here we are on Thursday and our return to retail hell is imminent. But fear not, we leave you with some excellent programming today including a brand new multi-artist playlist later on.

Taj Mahal 1968. He is In The Spotlight today!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal, who was born Henry St. Clair Fredericks in Harlem, New York, is an American blues musician and multi-instrumentalist, who plays guitar, piano, banjo, harmonica, and many other instruments. He is an innovator who refuses to be “defined” by any one form and often incorporates elements of world music into his works. You get to hear him here today from The Mermaid Lounge.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Willy & The Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival

We are winding down on this week’s album selection. Our last airing will be on Saturday, so this might be a good day to tune this one in! On Sunday, when you roll out of bed, there’ll be a new selection.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Travelin’ Fever, Various Artists NEW!

The road is a popular topic among musicians, and we’ve got a brand new playlist debuting here today on just that subject. You’ll hear The Doors, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, The Byrds, Emmylou Harris, The Steve Miller Band, Linda Ronstadt, Arlo Guthrie, The Allman Brothers Band, Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. A once-famous person said that. I know. It’s a weekday. That may not be possible. But it’s the thought that counts. Nevertheless, if you can, you should.

The Beatles at High Noon, Donovan In The Spotlight, and Badfinger Live Later, Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists. Yes, it’s still morning. We’re a little later than usual kicking this off but every now and then what is known as “the real world” takes center stage. We try to keep that to a minimum here.

We’ve got some early Beatles up for you at noon!

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years

Yes, The early years, when the Fab Four was in its infancy. But even back then, they were a force, no matter what the morons listening to the garbage being made today tell you. They were a really tight band even back then, and were doing things that nobody else was doing. We’ve even got some alternative takes and unreleased music in this particular playlist, so enjoy.

4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Donovan

Surely one of the most iconic musicians of the sixties right here. Sometimes he falls under the radar, but he shouldn’t. We used to call him Mr. Cosmic when we were yunguns.

8:00 p.m. Badfinger Live at The Cowtown Ballroom, Kansas City, Missouri, April 7, 1972

Perhaps the only bona fide star power band ever signed by The Beatles for Apple Records, Badfinger made some great power pop music in its day. Betrayed by their manager and royally fucked over, their ending was a sad one with two members committing suicide. But they left us a great musical legacy and we love them here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Tune us in, folks. You have no idea what you’re missing until you give us a shot. No foolin’ around here. We’re the real deal.

Monday Rolls Around Again With John Prine In The Spotlight, Clapton’s Baloise Sessions, and The Beatles, May 17, 2021

It’s the beginning of another challenging work week here, and we in The Mermaid Lounge are up to the challenge with some great programming.

We’ve got The Beatles in their transformation state up at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Prine

We lost John Prine’s voice early in the COVID-19 battle. He had already been fighting cancer and just couldn’t withstand another illness on top of it. But John Prine left behind a great musical legacy, his compositions a combination of wit and introspection. Today we put him In the Spotlight where he belongs.

3:00 p.m. Eric Clapton Live in Basel, Switzerland: The Baloise Sessions, November 13-14, 2013

Eric Clapton’s Baloise Session performances from 2013 in Basel, Switzerland. Joining him on stage in his band were Andy Fairweather-Low (vocals, guitar), Paul Carrack (vocals, keyboard), Henry Spinetti (drums), Chris Stainton (keyboard), and Michelle John and Sharon White (backing vocals).

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

Along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles are our reigning house band. We work very hard to try not to overplay either band or show favoritism, and this is difficult. However, sometimes I feel like we are remiss in playing them also. Tonight’s playlist covers songs from Rubber Soul through Magical Mystery Tour.

This selection is a great kick off to the work week. Join your friends from around the world in The Mermaid Lounge. This morning we have listeners from Italy, Japan, the Faroe Islands, the Netherlands, Spain, the Russian Federation and others, Were free 24/7 and we play the best music on the planet.
