Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s our usual busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge and I leave you in good flippers with the Music Mermaid as I head off to the land of retail.
Here’s how your Saturday is shaping up:
11:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’Soul: Various Artists
Actually, it’s a shitload o’soul here in the lounge today. Just over five hours of the greatest soul from Motown to Memphis and back. You’ll hear Ray Charles, Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Supremes, Al Green, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Fats Domino, and so many more.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell FINAL AIRING!
Tonight at 7:00 p.m. we bid a fond but very necessary farewell to this great album. Tomorrow, when you roll out of the sack, we’ll have a brand new one for you.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Swing Auditorium, San Bernardino, CA NEW!
In keeping with our Saturday evening ritual, we’ve got another great airing of LIVE DEAD! Again, it’s one we’ve never aired before keeping the tradition alive. Join us and listen to the music world’s premier jam band.
Do I sound like a broken record when I get to this part of the blog post? Of course I do. But that’s the role of advertising. Everyone knows that if you repeat something enough maybe somebody will want me to shut the fuck up and listen. You have no idea what you’re missing…for free.
