Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.
Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams
Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.
7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017 NEW!
Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Tuesday Bluesday once again, and we’ve got The Yardbirds on tap. Be sure to join us!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday! The Yardbirds: The BBC Sessions 1965-1968 NEW!
The Yardbirds are a British blues-rock band formed in London in May of 1963. The original lineup featured vocalist and harmonica player Keith Relf, drummer Jim McCarty, rhythm guitarist/bassist Chris Dreja and bassist/producer Paul Samwell-Smith. Throughout the years, other band members have come and gone.
During the BBC Sessions featured in this playlist, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page circulated in and out of the band.
4:00 p.m. Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles
This was The Eagles third studio album, and they added Don Felder to go for a more rock feel than the first two albums.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Booker T. & The M.G.’s
Booker T. & The M.G.’s were a musical force in the sixties. Formed in Memphis in 1962, the band was influential in shaping the unique sound of Southern soul and Memphis soul. The original band members were Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Steve Cropper (guitar), Lewie Steinberg (bass), and Al Jackson Jr. (drums). As the de facto house band for Stax Records, they also played for artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, and Delaney & Bonnie.
Tune us in for a great musical feast. We’re free. All the time.
