Monday, Monday With Jackson Browne, Some Live Flying Burrito Brothers, and That Sweet Soul Sound, October 11, 2021

It’s Monday all over again, and someone here though it would be a good idea to run The Boston Marathon on Columbus Day and insult the Indigenous People a little more. Welcome to Boston. But nevertheless, we have some great music for you here in The Mermaid Lounge.

The Shirelles, a great sixties girl band you’ll hear later today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Jackson Browne

This past Saturday was not only John Lennon’s birthday, but it was also Jackson Browne’s. And Jackson Browne is a singer-songwriter legend in these parts. Today, we give Jackson a turn In The Spotlight.

3:00 p.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live at The Palomino, North Hollywood, CA, June 8, 1969

Here we have one of the pioneers of country-rock recorded during a Monday night residency in the year 1969. The brothers play a great batch of songs, some from their debut album and some not. Keep in mind that this was recorded in 1969.

7:00 p.m. That Sweet Soul Sound: Various Artists

Consider this just a bit of a preview of what we’ll be featuring this coming Sunday when we give you our soul and R & B long player. You’ll hear The Shirelles, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, The Ronettes, Otis Reading, Ray Charles, Ben E. King, Jimmy Ruffin, Fontella Bass, Irma Thomas, The Staple Singers, The Temptations, The Marvelettes, Jackie Wilson, Booker T. & The MGs, Wicked Wilson Pickett, and many more!

It’s Monday. Take some of the edge off and tune us in. If you’re working all alone in your office, just pull up a tab and click on the link below, and push the play button. It’s as simple as that. There’s no credit card required and no shit to fill out. And the only commitment you’ll make is to some great music.

It’s Saturday With The Flying Burrito Brothers, Booker T & The MGs, LIVE DEAD, and Our Album of The Week, May 15, 2021

Welcome to our usual raucus Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge. While I entertain the entitled consumer masses, The Music Mermaid will be seeing to your listening pleasure. We’ve got our usual great Saturday line-up.

Booker T & The MGs, the Stax Records house band, were a force. We’ve got them In the Spotlight this evening!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live at The Palomino, Hollywood, CA, June 8, 1969 NEW!

We love this band here in The Mermaid Lounge, and this particular live recording is new to us here. Gram Parsons didn’t live long enough to really reach his potential, but we believe it was limitless and that he left us a great musical legacy.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Linda Ronstadt, The Stone Poneys & Friends, Volume III FINAL AIRING!

We say farewell to this album after today’s airing, the final Stone Poneys album before Linda Ronstadt launches into her meteoric career and her decade reign as the Queen of Rock. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new album for you.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Booker T & The MGs

Yes, they were the Stax Records house band, but they were so much more than that. They were a force in the music world and, once you pay attention to them, it’s easy to see why Tom Petty and his bandmates were so smitten with them.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountainview, CA, June 21, 1989 NEW!

Another new offering from the ultimate jam band here. We aired a previous Dead show several months ago from this venue, but this one is brandy new. Enjoy.

I can hear the birds outside my window this morning, the sun is already up, and our friends from Europe, Asia and beyond are already tuned in. Why don’t you join them? We’re not-for-profit. we accept no advertising to clog up your listening pleasure with a hard sell from our sponsors (we don’t have any), and we don’t employ chatty DJs who talk endlessly about inane subjects. We just play music and toss in a few station ID comments a day. And oh, by the way, we play music nobody else plays all day long. That’s it. Today should be the day.
