It’s A Mermaid Lounge Monday With Linda Ronstadt Live in Boston, John Prine In the Spotlight, and Plenty of Music Under the Sun & Moon Later, November 1, 2021

Not only is it the beginning of another work week, but it’s the start of another month. The winter is slowly rolling in, the temps are chilly, but we’ve got just the stuff to keep you warm all winter here in The Mermaid Lounge.

We put John Prine In the Spotlight this afternoon!

Here’s your Monday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, May 14, 1995

This is the infamously great concert with Valerie Carter as the opener and on stage with Linda backing her up during the main event. The good music fairy was shining down that day. It’s not often you get to see two great singers together on the same stage, but I was fortunate on this particular night.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Prine

John Prine was a genuine original, a country-folk singer-songwriter who often used his great wit and introspection to write (sometimes) humorous songs containing elements of protest and social commentary. I was fortunate to see him once during my lifetime (and his), but wish it had been more. We own all of his material here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ll play it for you later today.

7:00 p.m. Under the Sun & Moon: Various Artists

Another of our original playlists here with references to the sun and moon in the title, lyrics, or both. You’ll hear from Tom Rush, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, The Doors, Foo Fighters, The Kinks, The Wallflowers, Donovan, The Traveling Wilburys, and more!

Mondays are difficult at best. You will make your day so much better if you take the time to tune us in. It’s just so damned easy it isn’t funny. Pull up a tab and click the link below. You’ll see. It doesn’t cost you a penny or require any effort on your part beyond that.

It’s Midweek During the Final Week of Tom Petty Month, and We’ve Got Those Echoes From the Canyon Again, Wednesday, October 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’re at midweek again. We’ve got our Laurel Canyon EP going today, along with some Wildflowers action a bit later as part of Tom Petty Month.

Some of the Legends of the Canyon

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists

This became an EP a little over a month ago, and it’s one of our favorites. Laurel Canyon was a musical phenomenon of both the 60s and 70s. You will hear The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Canned Heat, The Doors, The Mamas & The Papas, The Monkees, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Carole King, James Taylor, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, CSNY, Neil Young, Stephen Stills & Manassas, John Mayall and many more.

7:00 p.m. Wildflowers & All The Rest: Finding Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Ever wonder how the final songs became the final songs? This is a great playlist from the Wildflowers project released just a little over a year ago. Alternate versions of the final songs that ended up on Wildflowers are a great treat for Petty fans. I never get tired of this stuff.

Its like Open Stream with a Theme. Yeah. That’s what it is. And it’s always uninterrupted by commercials or mouthy DJ’s who overstay their welcome. We’re also free, and we don’t ask you for a damned thing. So, what are you waiting for?

It’s Mid-Week and We Have a Brand New EP Coming Your Way Plus Some ‘Live’ Little Feat, Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Good Morning, Psychedelic Music Lovers (and that would definitely be me). The Psychedelic Express is rolling your way and is our latest playlist to move into EP territory!

The Psychedelic Express debuts as our latest EP today!

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists UPDATED AND EXPANDED!

We’ve gone from just under two hours of great psychedelic music to just under five hours of uninterrupted mind-bending music. You’ll hear the Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, The Animals, Eric Burdon & War, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, The Doors, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Rogers & The First Edition (yes, that Kenny Rogers), Yes, Vanilla Fudge, Mudcrutch, Tommy James & The Shondells, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Cream, Grateful Dead, Procol Harum, Blues Image, Donovan, The Byrds, Blind Faith, The Chambers Brothers, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground, and many more!

This particular EP set list will be on this blog under the Playlist tab prior to airing! Just scroll to the bottom.

7:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at Lisner Auditorium, Washington, D.C., August 18, 1977

We close out today’s programming with undoubtedly one of our favorite bands on the planet in Little Feat. Just as The Grateful Dead isn’t THE Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia, Little Feat isn’t THE Little Feat without Lowell George.

Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream with the Music Mermaid calling the shots. You cannot go wrong. No interruptions. No commercials. No chatty DJ’s who want to tell you about their lives. Just great music 24/7. Free.

Friday Brings Music From Laurel Canyon and Puts Paul Simon In The Spotlight Later, August 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’ve finally made good on our threat to upgrade and update the former ‘Echoes From The Canyon’ playlist. We think you’re going to like it and you can read more below.

Today’s feature is music from Laurel Canyon. Here we have Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons, both members of The Byrds back in the day.

Here’s today’s musical menagerie:

11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists UPDATED AND UPGRADED!

Laurel Canyon and the cross pollination it inspired among musical friends was magical, but it didn’t end with the 60’s. There was a second wave of people who moved in and took part in that magic, including Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, J.D. Souther, Carole King, James Taylor and others. They join The Doors, Canned Heat, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas & The Papas and others from the first wave.

We’ve updated this playlist to over four hours of great music, officially making it our newest extended player. Oh yeah, we’ve also changed the name.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

We haven’t heard from this guy for a while, so it’s about time. This playlist features his music from his partnership with Art Garfunkel to his solo work.

It’s another crazy hot and ugly weather day here in the Boston area. It has been this way most of the summer. We’re hoping it comes to an end outside, but we hope to keep it hot in The Mermaid Lounge (music-wise, that is) as we move into fall with some new stuff. In the meantime, it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy, as they say. Tune us in.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Mosque, Richmond, Virginia, May 25, 1977 NEW!

Another new live performance this week from Jerry Garcia and the gang, the world’s ultimate jam band. This one comes from The Mosque in Virginia.

The weekend is here. For most of us, it’s rest time (unless you’re in retail like me). So, tune us in. We are absolutely, positively 100% free with no strings attached. No advertising to mess up the flow, and no mouthy disc jockeys.

We kick off the day with those Echoes from Laurel Canyon of the 60’s and 70’s

Here’s your Friday the 13th line-up:

11:00 a.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists

This playlist is about to go through a major update and become a long-player, but today we give you just over three hours of great music that came from friends who hung out in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood together and developed some of the best music on the planet. You will hear The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, John Mayall, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, The Beach Boys, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Monkees, Joni Mitchell, CSNY, Jackson Browne and more!

7:00 p.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

Rex, Barry McGuire, Peter Tosh, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Animals, Country Joe & The Fish, Pink Floyd, Buffalo Springfield, The Band, The Beatles, Joan Baez, and more.

As always, it’s a great day to tune in a radio station that focuses on nothing but music 24/7 with no commercial interruption and at no cost to you, the listener. If there’s another source that offers the same, please, tell us about it.

We’re at The Midweek Point With a Wilbury Wednesday, and Our Psychedelic Express Playlist Later, July 14, 2021

Good Morning, fellow Wilbury lovers everywhere! We’ve got a Wilbury Wednesday in store for you today as we play the complete collection today. Later on, it’s our Psychedelic Express playlist.

The post-Orbison era Wilburys. Simply the greatest supergroup ever assembled.

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. WILBURY WEDNESDAY! The Complete Wilburys: Volumes 1 & 3

Everything they ever recorded, both with and after Roy Orbison’s untimely death. They numbered the volumes this way for some unknown reason and we are not arguing. People should not forget Buster Sidebury, who is the great Jim Keltner on drums. Here’s some material on the Wilburys for your reading enjoyment. (By the way, it’s a great website to travel through.)

7:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

This one is due for an update, but here it is nevertheless. You’ll hear Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Blues Image, Jefferson Airplane, The Chambers Brothers, The Byrds, Cream, The Beatles, The Doors, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, and more!

In between, it’s wide Open Stream, so enjoy as we prepare for the Linda Ronstadt birthday bash tomorrow. We’re totally free every day, not just when we want to suck you into a subscription (which we don’t even ask for). We run no advertising, just an occasional station I.D. from yours truly, and we certainly don’t want to know your personal information. We have our own problems here.

It’s Sunday and The Wallflowers Own Our Album of The Week, While Our Extended Play Sixties Set List Starts This Afternoon, July 11, 2021

Good Morning, Gang! Here we are again on another Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge. We had a bit of an interruption in the flow with Fillmore Fest earlier in the month, but we’re back on track now!

The Wallflowers are back with their first new album in ten years and its our Album of The Week!

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers NEW!

This guy is my personal songwriting favorite in the post-Petty era. Jakob Dylan recently gave an interview, in fact, in which he said that his friend Tom Petty loomed large over this album, his first in ten years with The Wallflowers. We are certainly glad they are back.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists

The music that inspired me to start this radio station is back for another uninterrupted five-hour stint today. We had a minor delay to pay honor to The Fillmore, but we are back on track now. This is the music that covers the mid-to-late sixties with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Janis Joplin (with and without Big Brother), The Kinks, The Grateful Dead, The Chambers Brothers, Melanie, The Temptations, The Stone Poneys (featuring Linda Ronstadt), The Band, Bob Dylan, The Four Tops, Cream, Derek & The Dominos, Scott McKenzie, The Mamas & The Papas, and many, many others.

Get off to an early start. We already have people listening in from the UK, France, Denmark, the Russian Federation, The Faroe Islands (look them up; it’s real), Switzerland, Germany, and our home base in the U.S. All are welcome. We’re free. There’s no commercial interruption, and no credit card required. All you need is a computer tab.

The Doors Live at Cobo Arena, We Celebrate Ringo’s 81st Birthday, and Launch Our New ‘Under the Sun & Moon’ Playlist, Wednesday, July 7, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists everywhere! Today we have some great live Doors, and celebrate Ringo’s 81st birthday. Later on, we launch our brand new playlist.

We begin the day with The Doors live at Cobo Arena in Detroit.

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Doors Live at Cobo Arena, Detroit, Michigan, May 8, 1970

Just about a year before his untimely death, Jim Morrison and the Doors played the Cobo Arena in Detroit. We have it for you today.

3:00 p.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite Ringo Starr Music

We celebrate Ringo’s 81st birthday today by weighing in on my favorite Ringo Starr music as a Beatle, as a solo artist, and as a drummer. I hear a lot of bullshit disparaging remarks out there about Ringo’s drumming. Talk is cheap. His peers in the drumming world don’t share that attitude. In fact, Ringo is one of the most respected drummers on the planet, and The Beatles went to great lengths to lure him away from Rory Storm and the Hurricanes.

7:00 p.m. Under The Sun & Moon: Various Artists NEW!

We love putting together these playlists here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today’s is a pile of songs with the sun and the moon mentioned either in the title or the lyrics (and sometimes both). You’ll hear The Beatles, Tom Rush, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, The Wallflowers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, The Traveling Wilburys, Linda Ronstadt, Maria Muldaur, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Kinks, and many more!

The song list will be up under the Playlist tab before airing.

Tune us in, folks. Join your friends around the world by jumping on board the magic Mermaid Music bus. You don’t need no stinking credit card. All you need is a free computer tab. Seriously.
