Good Morning, Music Mixologists! Petty Month is winding down on the calendar, but not here in The Mermaid Lounge. We are preparing for Petty’s Birthday Bash this weekend.
Here’s today’s line-up as we edge toward the weekend:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology, Volumes 3 & 4
We wind down the week with The Live Anthology, released November 23, 2009. Up until that point in their brilliant 40-year run, these recordings represented the absolute best of The Heartbreakers live. So much has happened since then.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt & Friends: Duets & More
Linda Ronstadt is another of those artists. She’s our favorite female in the house. In essence, our House Songstress. In spite of her incredible solo career, Linda Ronstad always preferred singing with others, and it shows on this playlist. She could sing with anyone, any time, anywhere, and sing any style.
10:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty
Today’s Airing: The Home Demos
A little late-night airing of what we’ve been playing over the past couple of weeks. We’ll be hearing much more over the weekend.
We have visitors from Poland on for the first time today. In fact, they joined just before my bedtime and are still on this morning. We’re waiting on ya’ll in the U.S. to wake the fuck up.
