It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Johnny Winter, Albert King, and Stevie Ray Vaughan! In the Middle, It’s Our Album of The Week, April 13, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are on another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got a great selection for you today.

On this fine Tuesday Bluesday, we feature Johnny Winter live at The Bottom Line!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York City, September 5, 1978

For reasons unknown to me, sometimes this guy is overlooked by blues music lovers (but not his peers, like Muddy Waters). He is never overlooked here in The Mermaid Lounge either, and today we feature him live at The Bottom Line.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hotcakes by Carly Simon

The second airing of our Album of The Week, one of Carly Simon’s biggest sellers and for good reason. It’s definitely our favorite Carly Simon album here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

7:00 p.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session, December 6, 1983

A great session recorded live at CHCH-TV Studios in Ontario, Canada, when Stevie Ray Vaughan was 29 years old, and Albert King was in his sixtieth year. Two masters at work.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a good day to tune us in, of course. But then again, any day of the week is a good day to avail yourself of our services. We are not-for-profit radio. Period. End of story.

It’s Totally Tuesday Bluesday! As Willie Dixon says, “The blues are the roots; everything else is the fruits,” December 15, 2020

Here we are, Blues Lovers! We’ve got a total blues and blues rock day lined up for you today. It’s amazing when something like this just kind of comes together without much planning!

Johnny Winter. ‘Nuff said.

Here’s today’s Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978

Johnny Winter is an American blues singer and guitarist remembered mostly for his high-energy blues rock style and live performances throughout the sixties and seventies. He also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues great Muddy Waters.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Led Zeppelin IV by Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin has long been known for its hard-driving blues rock style, so it’s only fitting that the Album of the Week falls on Tuesday Bluesday!

7:00 p.m. Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues, Live at Lincoln Center, April 7-9, 2011

In 2011, blues guitarist Eric Clapton and jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis got together for a night of vintage blues. The songs were chosen by Clapton and arranged by Wynton Marsalis. They played with the orchestra from Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Just a reminder. We stream 24/7, schedule great programming, charge no money for any of it, and ask for no personal information. Did I miss anything? Oh, yeah, our DJ isn’t an incessant talker either.

BLUES WEEK continues! Johnny Winter at The Bottom Line, The J. Geils Band in The Spotlight, and our Albert King AOW, Tuesday, September 22, 2020

We have da blues all week long here from The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got an interesting selection for you today, to say the least.

Johnny Winter was the real deal, people.

Here’s today’s high-energy line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978

Johnny Winter was the real deal, but perhaps not in the traditional sense. He is known for his distinctive blues-rock style, and his live performances of the late 60s and the 70s are legendary. He also produced three Grammy award-winning albums for blues legend Muddy Waters. Today we have him live at The Bottom Line.

3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King

If you missed the first airing on Sunday, here’s another opportunity to hear our Album of The Week.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The J. Geils Band

Some purists may turn their nose up at this selection, but that’s why I run the station. No matter what they tell you, this was Boston’s original party band, and they were once known as the J. Geils Blues Band before they made their crossover. No matter, they were the masters of blues rock, and when they were on stage, there was nobody like them.

It’s a day, isn’t it? So, why not tune us in. Doesn’t matter what time you choose…unless, of course, you want to hear our programming. Otherwise, we run 24/7, For free.
