Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today we have our first Wilbury Wednesday of the new year and we belatedly celebrate The King’s 88th birthday (this past Sunday). We’re sometimes more than a day late but we’re never a dollar short.
Here’s your midweek lineup:
10:00 a.m. Wilbury Wednesday: The Bootleg Series
Yep. It’s all here. Outtakes. Alternate versions. Special recording sessions. Stuff that was never released and stuff that was from the absolute best supergroup on the planet, bar none.
3:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Laura Nyro
We give Laura Nyro her second airing of three today as this week’s featured Singer-Songwriter. Our final airing will be sometime on Friday as we get ready to introduce a new artist on Saturday.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Elvis Presley NEW!
There are several founding artists of rock n’ roll, but Elvis made the music accessible to all as we began a great revolution in music. This past Sunday would have been The King’s 88th birthday. In celebration, although belatedly, we put him In the Spotlight where he belongs.
We’re at midweek, people. It’s all downhill toward the weekend from here, and we’ve got the best music on the planet to help your journey more pleasant. We are on 24/7 at no charge to you. We do not accept commercial advertising or employ chatty DJs who love the sound of their own voice. The Music Mermaid is having none of that.
