The Final Airing of REVOLVER, Traffic Live at Woodstock ’94, Queen in The Spotlight, and Tonight’s Live Dead on Saturday, September 5, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! As usual, it’s a pretty busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge. Today, we wish Freddie Mercury a happy birthday with a special Spotlight edition.

Traffic-Woodstock 94

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles   FINAL AIRING!

Today, we bid Revolver a fond farewell. Tomorrow, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week on the blog.

3:00 p.m.      Traffic Live at Woodstock ’94

Woodstock ’94 sure wasn’t the original, but anywhere Bob Dylan and Traffic show up to play can’t be all bad.

7:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Queen   NEW!

Today, we’ wish Freddie Mercury a Happy Birthday. If he were alive today, he’d be 72 years old, the oldest member of the classic Queen line-up. Although he passed in 1991, Queen’s music lives on.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, November 7, 1969   NEW!

Another new airing of Live Dead, this one from 1969 at The Fillmore West. I have no idea how many times the band played at The Fillmore, but I promise you no two shows were ever the same. As usual.

I know. Here I go again, like a broken record. It’s time, people, to tune in a station that doesn’t charge you for music. That would be #BecomeUngovernable Radio. Just hit the link below.

Back From Limbo! We Celebrate With Our Two House Bands: The Beatles and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Friday, July 31, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are back from Limbo! Therefore, it is only fitting that we celebrate the occasion (which we hope to never have happen again) with our two house bands!

The Beatles-Ticket to Ride

12:00 p.m.   Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Fillmore 1999

Back in ’99, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers performed at The Fillmore in San Francisco for seven consecutive sold-out nights on The High Grass Dogs Tour. By then, the band was already enmeshed in a full-on love affair with fans, and this continued to grow over the coming decades. We love Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers here in The Mermaid Lounge.

4:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart    FINAL AIRING!

We not only say goodbye today to The Tell-Tale Heart but to the Inner Sanctum. We’ll take a very short break in the spooky proceedings, but will be back with another featured series soon.

7:00 p.m.     The Beatles: Help!, The Movie Soundtrack    NEW!

It’s not a new album, but July 20 was the 55th anniversary of the film’s official release in the UK. It was released in August of 1965 in the U.S. Today, we celebrate the release of Help! by featuring the soundtrack album. The song in the scene above (photo) is Ticket To Ride, which John Lennon called the first psychedelic song ever made. Enjoy!

Yes. We’re back. We’re still free. Outside the system. No credit card required. No personal information asked. We’re not in it for the money.

PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU HAVE SAVED THIS IN THE PAST, OUR LINK IS NEW:

George Harrison in the Spotlight, Lucinda Williams at the Fillmore, Dylan & Petty Live in Sacramento, and “Cosmo’s Factory” on Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This will post earlier than usual because I’m on an opening shift today. We’ve got some great stuff coming your way.

Harrison

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of George Harrison

The “quiet” Beatle is what he was known as. By the end of The Beatles’ run, George Harrison had become a formidable songwriter in addition to a pretty damned good guitarist.

5:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Cosmo’s Factory by Creedence Clearwater Revival
