Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’ve finally made good on our threat to upgrade and update the former ‘Echoes From The Canyon’ playlist. We think you’re going to like it and you can read more below.
Here’s today’s musical menagerie:
11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists UPDATED AND UPGRADED!
Laurel Canyon and the cross pollination it inspired among musical friends was magical, but it didn’t end with the 60’s. There was a second wave of people who moved in and took part in that magic, including Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, J.D. Souther, Carole King, James Taylor and others. They join The Doors, Canned Heat, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas & The Papas and others from the first wave.
We’ve updated this playlist to over four hours of great music, officially making it our newest extended player. Oh yeah, we’ve also changed the name.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
We haven’t heard from this guy for a while, so it’s about time. This playlist features his music from his partnership with Art Garfunkel to his solo work.
It’s another crazy hot and ugly weather day here in the Boston area. It has been this way most of the summer. We’re hoping it comes to an end outside, but we hope to keep it hot in The Mermaid Lounge (music-wise, that is) as we move into fall with some new stuff. In the meantime, it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy, as they say. Tune us in.
