Begin Your Friday ‘Under the Influence’, and Get In the Groove With Etta James Later This Evening, November 19, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We have go a brand new ‘extended play’ set list for you today as we’ve greatly expanded Under The Influence and brought it up to EP status.

We kick off the day today with our new Under the Influence EP!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists UPDATED & EXPANDED

It is with great pleasure that we give you this as our latest extended play offering. We had fun making this one happen. You’ll hear Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, The Beatles, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Temptations, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Burden & War, The Fraternity of Man, and many more as you expand the outer limits of your musical minds.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James

Etta James’ career began the year I was born, in 1954. Right up through 2012, her big, earthy voice has interpreted many genres, including R & B/soul, the blues, gospel, jazz, and rock n’ roll. She gained fame with several hits, including Tell Mama, At Last, and I’d Rather Go Blind. She won six Grammy awards, and 17 blues music awards, and she is a resident of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (1993), The Blues Hall of Fame (2001), and Grammy Hall of Fame (1999). Learn more about Etta James here.

Shall I say it yet again? It is a great day to tune us in. We’re finally as the end of the work week (for some lucky souls) and we’ve got this great new, inspirational extended playlist to share with you. That’s nearly five hours of uninterrupted tales of drugs, drink and rock n’ roll. Hey, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another. This is the most fun you can have without actually doing it.

We’re at Midweek With Our Multi-Artist EP About the Women in Our Lives, and We’ve Got a Great ‘NOT THE Album of The Week’ Later, Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re at midweek here and we’ve got a lot of Open Stream punctuated with some great programming starting at noon today. Read on for the details (because the devil is always in the details).

The Female Species, a multi-artist songfest, begins at noon!

Here are the details:

12:00 p.m. The Female Species: Various Artists

Hey, nothing sexist about this particular playlist. Just some great songs with the words ladies, women, or girls in their titles or lyrics…or both. This is always a fun exercise for me. There’s a lot of, “Oh yeah, hey, I almost forgot that song!”

7:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Long After Dark by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers UPDATED!

We’ve already got an album for this week, but it came to our attention yesterday that this great Heartbreakers album was released 39 years ago yesterday, giving us yet another opportunity to hear our House Band. This great album resulted in three singles, including the mighty You Got Lucky, in addition to Change of Heart and Straight Into Darkness.

We’re giving you an added bonus with this airing. At the end are two songs that were written and recorded for this album, but which were dropped. One is Turning Point, which appeared on the Playback album later. The other was one we never heard until after Tom Petty passed, called Keep A Little Soul. This one appeared on An American Treasure, released after his death. I love both of these songs and the beauty of having access to them is so that you can wonder how they were left off the original album, particularly Keep A Little Soul. At the end of the day, it matters not. These songs are here now and we get to experience them.

Great day to tune us in. Blah. Blah. Blah. We say the same shit every day in an attempt to entice you. We have no advertising budget because we collect no money. We need you and your ‘word of mouth’ to help us out. In the meantime: ENJOY.

We Close Out The Week With The #BecomeUngovernable House EP and Some True Confessions, Friday, October 29, 2021

Good Morning, Pettyologists! The month is coming to a close quickly and we’ve got just a couple of more things to squeeze in, one of them coming this evening. Read on!

We’ve got Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on The True Confessions Tour later

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

This is one of our favorites here. It started small and became an EP a little over a month ago. We’ve got some great music lined up over the afternoon hours coming from this excellent multi-artist long player.

7:00 p.m. Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Cal Expo Amphitheatre, Sacramento, CA, June 12, 1986

We’ve got a tour where Petty and his mates were not necessarily the headliners, but that didn’t seem to matter to either them or the audience. This is where the seeds were planted for a great musical match and where Mike Campbell said that the band truly learned how to improvise on stage. He credited Dylan with that lesson. This is one of those “don’t miss” moments.

Come on, folks. What the hell are you waiting for? Your friends from around the planet are out there right now listening to us and you need to find a way to join them. Hey, this isn’t rocket science. It’s Internet radio.

ZZ Top was started in Houston, Texas in 1969. For 51 years the trio of Dusty Hill (vocals, bass), Billy Gibbons (vocalist, guitarist), and Frank Beard (drums) made some of the best rock music around.

It’s Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge and That Brings the Extended-Play ORIGINAL Sixties Rotation Along With Our New Album of The Week From Valerie Carter, October 3, 2021

Good Morning, Music Aficionados everywhere! Here we are with another Sunday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got our usual great programming situation going here.

Valerie Carter was way more than just a pretty face. As Jackson Browne sang of her, “That Girl Could Sing.” See for yourself today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Just A Stone’s Throw Away by Valerie Carter NEW!

For those who do not know Valerie Carter, this album is a great way to start that process. It is so hard to categorize this album (her debut album). It’s a little bit folk, it’s a little bit country, it’s got some jazz moments and it’s a lot of R & B and funk. Carter has an amazing voice that can handle it all. Just A Stone’s Throw was produced by Lowell George (Little Feat), George Massenburg, and Maurice White (Earth, Wind & Fire). It featured musicians like Jackson Browne, Bob Glaub, Herb Pederson, John Sebastion and literally all of Little Feat. Her back-up singers included Linda Ronstadt, Deniece Williams, Herb Pederson, Lowell George, and Maurice White. Yeah, you’ve got all week to tune it in, but why wait?

3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

We have two massive sixties rotation EP’s, and this is the first from the early sixties to the mid-sixties. There’s some overlap in artists from one to the other, but none of the songs overlap. In this EP, you’ll hear from a pretty eclectic line-up that includes Sonny & Cher, The Monkees, Mary Wells, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Dusty Springfield, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, The Searchers, The Dave Clark Five, Petula Clark, Buddy Holly, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Band, The Yardbirds, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Donovan, The Rolling Stones and more!

You cannot go wrong with #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We’re free. We ask for no personal information and no credit card is required because there are no “subscription” fees. We do not accept advertising, so there aren’t any commercials to interrupt the flow of music. This is a good day to join your friends from around the world, including Poland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, France, Portugal, The Russian Federation, and yes, the United States.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies

Undoubtedly one of the great British Invasion bands. We haven’t heard this one for a while, so it’s long overdue.

Before, in between and after we have wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. Sounds like a pretty good day to open those ears to something completely different in radio!

It’s Another Monday Here and The Beginning of the Week is All About Love and Loss, September 27, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Fall is in the air here this morning, and love is on our minds. That is to say, music about true love and heartbreak. I’m an expert at the second part. That’s why I don’t play in that arena anymore.

First comes love. Then comes heartbreak. We’ve got both ends of the spectrum today.

Here’s your Moan-Day line-up:

11:00 a.m. Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists

We start with the bad news first. That way we can end the day on a more upbeat note. You’ll hear laments from Elvis Presley, Carole King, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Rush, Ray Charles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Cat Stevens, The Pretenders, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The J. Geils Band, Guy Clark, Bob Dylan, Them, and many more!

3:00 p.m. True Love Always: Various Artists

This is a much longer and optimistic playlist. Funny how that works out, eh? I’ll have to do some digging into just why it’s the longer of the two. In this particular list you’ll hear The Mamas & The Papas, George Harrison, Valerie Carter, Linda Ronstadt, Mudcrutch, The Hollies, Joni Mitchell, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Jonathan Edwards, The Beatles, Neil Young, Basia, Van Morrison, Jackson Browne, Guy Clark, The Four Tops, and more!

We’re here with you through the ups and downs of life. We’ve got some folks tuned in this morning from Switzerland, Germany, the UK, Spain, France, The Russian Federation, Brazil, Japan, Denmark, and Italy. We’ve got some new listeners from the U.S. as well over the last few days, some from Kansas and some from Texas. What are you waiting for?
