It’s Sixties Sunday and ‘Deja Vu’, An Album That Helped Us Move Into 1970, Is Our Album of The Week, July 12, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another Sixties Sunday and, oddly enough, our new Album of the Week is Déja Vu, an album that helped make moving into the seventies more palatable.

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Déja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young   NEW!

Déja Vu was the second album by Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the first by the quartet of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. And what an album it is. It has stood the test of time. To date it has sold more than 8 million copies and is still the number one selling album of each member’s career.

2:00 p.m.    The Sixties on Sunday! The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists

Traffic, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Vanilla Fudge, The Temptations, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Sly & The Family Stone and then some. Join us for a continual five-hour, no repeats, no commercial trip into the past.

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Someone famous said that, I believe. You should take his advice.

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Robbie Robertson, The Kinks Live in NYC, and The New Inner Sanctum Debuts on Monday, July 6, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday in the real world, but here at The Mermaid Lounge, it’s another day in musical paradise. So, tune us in. All you need is a tab and a finger to make it happen.

the Kinks

Here’s your Monday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   In The Spotlight: The Music of The Band

This is our Happy 77th Belated Birthday tribute to the heart and soul of The Band, Robbie Robertson. We’ve got a great playlist going here from one of the most amazing musical groups in rock n’ roll history.

4:00 p.m.   The Kinks Live at The Palladium, New York, December 31, 1980   NEW!

The feuding Davies brothers notwithstanding, The Kinks were a kick-ass band. We have something new here just for our Kinks fans (and I’m one of them for sure).

8:00 p.m.   The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday   NEW!

What does The Man From Yesterday have to do with a gorilla? You’ll have to listen to find out.

The Second Part of Our Woody Guthrie Folk Fest, The Kinks in the Spotlight, and “On The Border” Returns, Thursday, May 28, 2020

WoodyGuthrie

Here’s your Thursday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of The Kinks

Sometimes I think the Kinks are overlooked on the big stage. They shouldn’t be. They’ve made some great rock n’roll. We’ll show you.

4:00 p.m.     Woody Guthrie: American Folk Giants, Volume 2: Various Artists   NEW!

Part two of the masters, including Woody, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, Odetta, The Weavers, The Carter Family and more! These are the people who inspired Dylan and many others. We’ll be getting to them next week!

8:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles

Without a doubt, my favorite album by The Eagles. You can learn more about this album and who helped create it by clicking on the photo on the right-hand side of the blog. Always.

Join us. Europe and Asia is all over this station. Apparently, the U.S. audiophiles are late bloomers. Either that or they don’t know good music when they hear it.
