It’s Sunday Funday With Our Folk Music Longplayer; The Wallflowers Own Our Album of The Week, May 23, 2021

Good Morning, Folks! It’s Sunday Funday here in The Mermaid Lounge and it’s time once again for our folk music extravaganza and a brand new Album of The Week.

Folk Music From A to Z begins at 3:00 p.m. today!

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: The Wallflowers by The Wallflowers NEW!

As you may (or may not) know, Jakob Dylan recently announced that there will be a brand new Wallflowers album for the first time in nine years. I just happened to catch a pre-release of one of the songs and it was great. It inspired me to make their 1992 debut release our Album of The Week this week. This is a pretty damned fine band. All songs were composed by Jakob Dylan with the exception of one, and he assisted on that one.

3:00 p.m. Folk Music From A to Z: Various Artists

One of our favorite playlists here in The Mermaid Lounge is afoot today, and you’ll hear Odetta, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bonnie Raitt, Woody Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty,, The Beatles, Arlo Guthrie, Ton Rush, Joan Baez, The Band, Eric Andersen, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, Tim Hardin and many more.

You can catch the entire set list in the Playlist section of this blog. Just scroll until you find it!

Even the particular god of your choice took Sunday off. The retail establishments forget, of course, that Sunday is a day of rest. But Capitalism reigns here in America. We must exercise our right to buy seven days of the week even as our individual rights erode hourly (and I’m not talking about fucking masks either). But I digress. You must tune in, turn on, and drop out if that is an option for you. It’ll save your mental health. We won’t cost you a penny.
