We Put Both Roy Orbison and The Temptations In the Spotlight, Give You the Final Airing of ‘Medicine At Midnight’ by the Foos, and Later “Live Dead,” Saturday, April 24, 2021

Good Morning, Kids! It’s another Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some great programming again. Saturday is one of our heaviest programming days, but we don’t get carried away. There is plenty of wide Open Stream on tap every day here.

Happy Belated Birthday to the late great (and former Wilbury) Roy Orbison.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Roy Orbison

Yesterday was Roy Orbison’s birthday. The man was a musical marvel with that great 5-octave voice. It should also be noted that he was a former member of the greatest supergroup in popular music history, The Traveling Wilburys. In honor of Roy, we put him In the Spotlight today.

4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Temptations

We have two spotlights today as we also focus on The Temptations, one of the greatest R & B bands of the sixties and seventies. We’ll consider this a warm-up for the introduction of next weekend’s launch of our new long-playing A Little Bit O’Soul playlist (May 1).

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Medicine At Midnight by Foo Fighters

Today we also offer up the final airing of the Foo Fighters’ newest album, Medicine At Midnight. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The World Amphitheatre, Tinley Park, Illinois, July 21, 1990 NEW!

Of course, we have our usual airing of Live Dead, this one was the opening of a three-night stand at The World Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. More magic from one of the world’s greatest road bands.

Come on, folks. Tune us in. We’re not-for-profit and outside the system. Join your European and Asian friends this morning by clicking the link below.

Between Heaven & Hell, Stephen Stills & Manassas Live in Amsterdam, and Cream’s Farewell Concert, Monday, April 5, 2021

It’s another Monday here in The Mermaid Lounge, where we aim to please. We have some great selections for you today mixed in with all that fine Open Stream.

We feature Cream’s farewell concert tonight at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Between Heaven & Hell: Various Artists

One of our patented multi-artist playlists with either heaven or hell (or both) featured in the title and/or lyrics. Got that? You’ll hear Stevie Wonder, The Byrds, The Grateful Dead, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Donovan, Roberta Flack, ZZ Top, The Foo Fighters, The Eagles, Rosanne Cash, Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty, Fats Domino and many more!

3:00 p.m. Stephen Stills & Manassas, Live at The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, March 22, 1972

A comeback for Stephen Stills after falling by the wayside, and a successful one at that from one of the finest singer-songwriters in popular music.

7:00 p.m. Cream’s Farewell Concert, The BBC Transmission, January 5, 1969

It’s true that Cream wasn’t around for very long, but they left behind some seriously great music. Tonight we feature their farewell concert broadcast by the BBC.

Like I keep saying, more and more people every day. Today we have listeners from the Faroe Islands, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and Canada. Sooner or later you’ll figure it out. We’re not in this for the money. We neither accept advertising nor have the money to advertise ourselves. We’re in it for the music.

Today We Celebrate Sam Cooke’s Birthday, We Air Our ‘Between Heaven & Hell’ Playlist, and The Final Airing of “The Shadow,” Friday, January 22, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great line-up today here from The Mermaid Lounge. Some people are forgotten at times. We won’t allow that to happen to Sam Cooke.

Sam Cooke, the man whose voice was made to sing soul.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at The Harlem Square Club, Miami, Florida, January 12, 1963

This performance was recorded back in 1963, but not released until 1985. RCA kept it locked in their vaults, thinking it was too gritty and would tarnish his pop image. In fact, it is now recognized as one of the best live performances in popular music history. Today we celebrate what would be Sam Cooke’s 90th birthday.

3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead FINAL AIRING!

That pesky beyond-the-grave killer returns. It’s a mystery, of course, until The Shadow figures it out.

7:00 p.m. Between Heaven & Hell: Various Artists

Haven’t heard this one in a while. This is a good day for it. Tuning us in will bring you Donovan, Led Zeppelin, The Foo Fighters, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, The Grass Roots, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and then some!

We’re free. We’re not intrusive. We do not require a credit card or personal information. All you need to do is click on the link below.

Gregg Allman Live at The House of Blues, Linda Ronstadt’s WE RAN, and We Celebrate Dave Grohl’s Birthday Later, January 14, 2021

Yes, Musicologists, it is a momentous day here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We have managed to celebrate someone’s birthday on time. See. Miracles are possible.

Gregg Allman was a pioneer in Southern Rock, and every bit as important to the Allman Brothers as his brother, Duane.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Gregg Allman Live at The House of Blues, New Orleans, December 31, 2012

I never understood people in the musical know who continue to debate which Allman was more important to The Allman Brothers. The simple answer is both of them. Duane was indeed one of those rare guitar gods. No question about it. But after his death, it was Gregg that held the band together. He was the songwriter, the arranger, and had an amazing voice. Today we have him live from The House of Blues in NOLA.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: We Ran by Linda Ronstadt

If you haven’t tuned this one in yet, I must tell you we are working on our second to last airing here on Thursday. This is Ronstadt’s most eclectic rock album, in my opinion, in spite of the fact that it come towards the twilight of her rock n’ roll career.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Foo Fighters

Today we are celebrating the birthday of Dave Grohl, singer and drummer for Nirvana, frontman for Foo Fighters, and near-drummer for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. (It worked out for all. Grohl got to start a great new band; the Heartbreakers got the amazing Steve Ferrone on drums.) Today we put Dave Grohl and The Foos in the spotlight.

Here we are toiling through another week. I have no idea how anyone does this without music. Listen, we don’t cost you a penny. We’re free. No credit card and no personal information required. Just pull up a tab.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of The Foo Fighters

The Foos started as Dave Grohl’s one-man project after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of Nirvana. The rest, as they say, is legend.

3:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye    NEW!

Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Marvin Gaye helped shape the Motown sound, earning himself a string of hits along with the title,  The Prince of Motown. Today, we give him his due.

7:00 p.m.     The Best of The Summer of Love! The Monterey International Pop Festival  NEW!
