McCartney’s Solo Debut is Our Album of The Week, and We’ve Got ‘The Psychedelic Express’ Rolling Through Later, Sunday, June 19, 2022

The Psychedelic Express rolls through this afternoon!

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: McCartney by Paul McCartney NEW!

Released on April 17, 1970, this was the very first Beatle solo album. Of course, people were absolutely pissed that the Beatles had broken up, so it took a while for people to warm up to this one, but over the years it has become one of the most beloved albums of all time. I also look back now and remember that the album was criticized for what appeared to be “unfinished” tunes. Now, alternate takes, unfinished versions, home recordings and all of the progressions to the final product are literally an art form. I remember the angst of millions that The Beatles were gone, and I suspect a lot of the criticism came from the fact that they broke up to begin with. The blame game was being played. I, too, was upset that The Beatles were no more, but as I got older I realized that bands break up all the damned time. I also know that The Beatles gave us all they had in the tank. They changed everything in a very short period of time, and the band’s music is timeless. That’s also the way I look at them as solo artists as well.

4:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

Psychedelic music is one of my most favorite genres of all time, so I’m looking forward to this one myself! Even bands not know as “psychedelic” bands tried their hand at this genre. You’ll hear Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Beatles, The Electric Prunes, The Animals, Jefferson Airplane, Blues Image, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Donovan, Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Traffic, Cream, Dr. John, Procol Harum, Fleetwood Mac, The Who, Canned Heat, Tommy James & The Shondells, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, Mudcrutch, Blind Faith, Grateful Dead, Big Brother & The Holding Company, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, and more!

Sunday. It’s a day of rest all across the globe. Pull up a chair and tune us in. We’re on 24/7 (not just when we have programming), we’re totally free, and we never air commercial advertising. What are you waiting for?

At Week’s End We’ve Got Our ‘In Your Dreams’ Multi-Artist EP and Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight Later, Friday, April 29, 2022

We’re winding down the work week today (unless, of course, you’re in retail hell). We’ve got our newest EP, ‘In Your Dreams’ along with Simon & Garfunkel In the Spotlight bringing up the rear.

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers, nightmares and other events that occur after dark.

Here’s your Friday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In Your Dreams: Various Artists

Today’s EP is about dreams, dreamers and nightmares. We’ve got them in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Aerosmith, Crowded House, the Moody Blues, Van Morrison, the Eurythmics, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Nanci Griffith, The Electric Prunes, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, The Mamas & The Papas, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, The Allman Brothers Band, Supertramp, Randy Newman, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Widespread Panic, The Youngbloods, Jimmy Ruffin, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, Patsy Cline, Joe Walsh, Bruce Springsteen, k d lang, Dusty Springfield, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel

We’re dusting this one off after a long winter’s nap. It’s time to break it out! Believe it or not, these guys met in elementary school in 1953 and began writing songs together. They are one of the best-selling groups of the 1960s, and songs like Sound of Silence, Mrs. Robinson, and Bridge Over Troubled Water reached number one on music charts worldwide. More than half a million people showed up in New York’s Central Park in 1981, which remains one of the most widely attended concerts in music history. What is not to love about these guys? They ‘ve made some of the best music on the planet, whether together or solo. But today, they are Simon & Garfunkel.

Great day to tune us in, folks, as is every day. We’ve got non-stop music, totally free of charge, 24/7. We don’t ask for a commitment of any kind, a credit card, or personal information. All we ask is that you help spread the word if you like us. We do not take advertising, so we don’t have money to spend on advertising.

Sunday Gives Us ‘Blood On The Tracks’ As Our New Album of The Week, and The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two EP, January 23, 2022

Good Morning, Weekenders! Maybe you’re sleeping in; maybe not. But we never actually sleep here in The Mermaid Lounge. We blast out music on a global basis 24/7!

Mid-afternoon brings a little under five hours of the best of the mid-to-late sixties!

Here’s your musical landscape for today:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan NEW!

Dylan is another one of those guys who gives me fits. It’s difficult, if not impossible, for me to pick a favorite album. Is it Desire? Is it Blood On The Tracks? Is it Nashville Skyline? I don’t know. It varies with my musical mood, I guess. I have the same problem with The Heartbreakers and The Beatles.

This is Bob Dylan’s 15th studio album, released on January 20. 1975, so we honor this album very close to it’s 47th anniversary, written at a time when there was a lot of stress in Dylan’s personal life. Jakob Dylan once described this album as “my parents talking,” but his father insists it’s not autobiographical. Either way, this album logged in at no. 16 on Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Albums of All Time. By 2004, it has risen to no. 9. It reached no. 1 on The Billboard 200 Chart, and no. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. Give it a listen. It is undoubtedly one of Dylan’s very best.

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

The Sixties Rotations (volumes 1 & 2) were the very first playlists we ever put together for this station. They have both expanded to EP’s at this stage of the game, and today we give you the one that focuses on the mid-to-late sixties. You’ll hear The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Simon & Garfunkel, the Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Janis Joplin, The Four Tops, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Four Tops, Vanilla Fudge, Sly & The Family Stone, The Zombies, The Doors, The Chambers Brothers, The Animals, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Procol Harum, The Electric Prunes, Them, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, The Mamas & The Papas, and many more!

It is indeed a day of rest. And what could be better than joining your fellow global listeners on such a day? You don’t have to wait for programming. We run on wide Open Stream 24/7, so our button is never in the ‘off’ position. All you really have to do is click the button below. Go ahead. See for yourself.

Tune in, Turn On, and Drop Out With ‘The Psychedelic Express’ EP, Our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! Later On, Saturday, January 22, 2022

Good Morning, Psychedelic Music Lovers! One of my favorite rock genres is in the limelight today. We’ve also got the final airing of Raising Sand, and LIVE DEAD! later tonight.

The Beatles fully embraced the psychedelic music sound, but they are just one of the bands you’ll hear today!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

This is, without a doubt, one of our favorite EPs here in The Mermaid Lounge. As I recall, we had a great time expanding this from its initial version. You’ll hear Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Beatles, The Electric Prunes, The Animals, Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blues Image, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Cream, The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Dr. John, Procol Harum, Grateful Dead, The Velvet Underground, Donovan, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Raising Sand by Alison Krauss & Robert Plant FINAL AIRING!

We say farewell to this great album this evening. Tomorrow morning when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection for your listening pleasure.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Coliseum, New Haven, CT, May 5, 1977 NEW!

We have another great soundboard recording from the ultimate road warriors here, and this time with their Wall of Sound. This is a new entry to our LIVE DEAD! series, and we hope you enjoy it.

Before, in between, and after it’s wide Open Stream. We are never off the air; we run 24/7 uninterrupted by commercial advertising or endlessly talking DJ’s. This is a labor of love, and we’re proud of the work we do here in The Mermaid Lounge. Tune us in.

Happy New Year! We Begin With a New Look But One Thing Remains Consistent: Our Commitment To Great Music, Saturday, January 1, 2022

We start the new year’s programming with our “Here Comes The Night” EP!

Here’s your New Year’s Day programming:

11:00 a.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists

6:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles FINAL AIRING!

Today’s the final airing of Magical Mystery Tour, and album that started as an EP in the UK, but became a full-blown album here in the U.S. with the addition of their five singles released the same year as the movie. Tomorrow when you wake up, we’ll have a brand new album.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, NY, with New Riders of The Purple Sage, November 8, 1970

Another rare repeat performance here for the boys, but a great one that hasn’t been aired here for quite a while. It’s like brand new (not that true Deadheads really care).

We’ve got a new look, and we’ll be introducing some new programming, but everything else remains the same. We’re free 24/7. We do not accept advertising, and we do not require a “subscription” from anybody. We ask for no personal information. All we ask is that you give us a listen. How difficult is that?

Little Feat Live in Boston, Volume One of Our Summer of Love Playlist, and a Lot of Open Stream, Friday, March 26, 2021

Good Morning, Folks! It’s Friday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’re light on programming and big on Open Stream today. But the programming we have is outstanding, and that’s a good thing.

Today we have Little Feat live at The Orpheum Theatre.

Here’s your line-up:

12:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, Mass, October 31, 1975

Little Feat’s career spanned five decades, all good. But the best years were with Lowell George, at least in the minds of those here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today we have them in Boston’s Orpheum Theatre, another show I was fortunate enough to see.

6:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume One: Various Artists

We have three volumes of these great tunes, and we’ll be hearing all of them over the next several days. But today we start with volume one featuring Petula Clark, Donovan, Marvin Gaye, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Yardbirds, The Electric Prunes, The Box Tops, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, and some guys named The Beatles…and more!

Here we go again: Tune us in. We’re free. We ask for no credit cards, no personal information and no “subscription” to our music service (that’s what the big guys call it) is required!
