Yeah, I know. People are always telling me I can’t have it both ways. But yes, I can. And so can you. We’re on Open Stream until 6:00 p.m. when the Traveling Wilburys pull into The Mermaid Lounge.
And, trust me, you’re going to love this two-hour Wilbury spectacular.
Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!
24/7 Daily (Mostly) Open Stream
Like we do every single day, we’re streaming more than 26,000 songs for you. No charge. No credit card. No registration. No advertising. No interruption. And no politicians.
Listen for those Three-in-a-Row’s all day long!
6:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! The Traveling Wilbury’s Inside-Out NEW!
The Mermaid Lounge will be rockin’ with Wilbury magic for more than two hours. Hear the Wilbury demos, extended versions, outtakes, and different recording sessions! This is a not-to-be-missed event!
By the way, all the details on what you will be hearing is under the Playlist tab of this blog. Just scroll to the bottom!
If you’re a Traveling Wilburys fan (and who isn’t?) this is a night you won’t want to miss. So, why not tune us in.? I mean, you have absolutely nothing to lose except those radio stations whose DJ’s just can’t shut the fuck up.
Good Morning, Musicologists! Today is another (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday, and it’s also a Wilbury Wednesday! What could be better?
Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!
Infinity (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday!
We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge circulating about 26,000+ songs every day. No commercials. No talking heads. No politicians. No charge. No bullshit.
And today, we add a new feature to our rotation called Three-in-a-Row, so be listening throughout the day!
6:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
The Traveling Wilburys are the best damned supergroup ever concocted. They released some albums, some videos, and never wanted to go on the road. Five guys who loved hanging out and making music together, and what great stuff they left us. If you’ve never heard their catalogue, tune us in and see for yourself.
Good day to see what we’re all about. I keep saying that stuff. Sooner or we hope you’ll join us.
We’re at mid-week, people. And this midweek is a Wilbury Wednesday. But that won’t be until a bit later in the day. That’s why we call this (Mostly) Open-Stream Wednesday.
Infinity: Open Stream Music: Various Artists
We are wide open right up until 6:00 p.m. tonight, circulating more than 26,000+ songs, with still plenty more to add as we roll through the year.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
In my book (and in that of many others), the finest supergroup ever. Five big-time guys who were friends and liked making music together without ego. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury), George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury), Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Jr.), Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury), and Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury) are the Traveling Wilburys. (By the way, after Orbison’s death, their names changed for the next release. But you can get all the fun details about names if you click the above link!)
Veteran percussionist and drummer, Jim Keltner (Buster Sidebury) was in the seat from beginning to end. Dhani Harrison contributed overdubs on Maxine and Like A Ship, and is credited as Ayerton Wilbury.
Today is Wilbury Wednesday, and you get the entire catalogue.
Let’s get our shit together, people. We’re starting to see some more U.S. listeners tuning in. Let’s keep that trend rolling! Share this with people you know!
We’ve got a wide open stream all day long tomorrow, followed by our Wilbury Wednesday for the month of June, and our latest episode of The Inner Sanctum!
6:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! In The Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys NEW & EXPANDED!
Not only do we have every song made by the Wilburys here, but we recently found some bootleg outtakes from Volume 1. Seven songs to be exact. This is the greatestsupergroup on the planet. You’re going to want to tune in.
The set list will be up under the Playlist tab. Scroll to the bottom!
10:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship
A late-night layover as The Death Ship pulls into port with its cargo of Buddha only knows what. Probably crates full of Coronavirus. Who’s steering that thing?
Bad jokes are my specialty. But the music’s great and they don’t allow me on the air, do don’t worry about the jokes.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a Wilbury Wednesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve also got some Woody Guthrie and his folk friends, and The Inner Sanctum.
Here’s your Wilbury Wednesday line-up!
12:00 p.m. Woody Guthrie and American Folk Giants, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
Hear Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Brownie McGhee, The Carter Family, and more folk legends!
4:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday: The Music of The Traveling Wiburys
Five guys who loved each other, enjoyed each other’s company, and simply made great music together. George Harrison (Spike Wilbury), Tom Petty (Muddy Wilbury), Jeff Lynne (Clayton Wilbury), Bob Dylan (Boo Wilbury), and Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury): The greatest supergroup of all time.
8:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Hunter From Beyond
Join us for Episode 4 this evening. Get your scary on, people.
What the hell are you waiting for? We play the best music ever and there’s never a charge, no credit card required, and no personal information sought.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Truck Day at Ace and I’m already on the run, so here’s the lay of the musical landscape for today!
Here’s today’s line-up!
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Electric Light Orchestra
Tom Petty called Jeff Lynne the best music producer on the planet. He found The Electric Light Orchestra back in 1970, took the Heartbreakers to new heights, and was a Traveling Wilbury. That’s all you need to know about this guy.
4:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Episode 3, Death Has Claws
At least this particular death does.
6:00 p.m. Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris: Live in Verona, Italy, June 3, 2006 NEW!
Join us this evening for a show from their All the Roadrunning tour. What seems like an unlikely pairing is a real treat.
Join us while I’m out there slaving. Someone has to have some fun today.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s mid-week and it’s Wilbury Wednesday! Can it get any better than that? Check out the line-up and see for yourself.
Here’s your line-up:
12:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, MA
The year was 1968, and Club 47 was the place. We remember Linda Ronstadt playing there and getting roast beef sandwiches at Elsie’s in Harvard Square. Others also launched their careers there, like Bonnie Raitt. This turn was for Joni.
4:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! The Traveling Wilburys are in The Spotlight
George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Roy Orbison. Five friends who simply loved making music together and having fun. It shows.
7:00 p.m. One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club NEW!
Sam Cooke. Sometimes his name doesn’t flow off the lips when you talk about soul music. It should. He’s the man who invented soul.
Join us. It’s free. It’s outside the system. Just do it. All you need to do is click the link.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light programming day, but it’s pretty powerful programming!
Here’s your Sunday Funday programming!
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Blind Faith, by Blind Faith
The first and only album by this supergroup was released by Polydor Records in 1969. The band was made up of Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker from Cream, Steve Winwood of The Spencer Davis Group, and Rick Grech of Family.
You can always learn more about our Album of the Week by clicking on its photo in the blog’s sidebar!
2:00 p.m. Sounds of the Supergroups: Various Artists NEW!
Speaking of supergroups, this playlist covers Blind Faith, The Traveling Wilburys, Cream, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and the supergroup nobody talks about…Ronstadt, Harris & Parton. It’s spectacular.
5:00 p.m. Bob Dylan and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Sacramento (’86)
After our Dylan & Heartbreakers feature, we’ll be on wide open stream!
