Today, We’ve Got Our ‘By the Numbers’ Playlist, Our Album of The Week, and Eva Cassidy Live Later, Thursday, June 9, 2022

It’s all about numbers. Here’ are some numbers for you. In fact, one of our songs in today’s multi-artist list is a Beatle song McCartney wrote when he was just 14 years old!

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. By The Numbers: Various Artists

Another great multi-artist playlist with numbers in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear The Beatles, Chicago, Three Dog Night, Mudcrutch, J.J. Cale, Steely Dan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Asleep At The Wheel, Eddie Cochran, Alice Cooper, Emmylou Harris, The Grass Roots, The Byrds, The Temptations, The Doors, Shawn Colvin, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Johnny Rivers, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Living With The Animals by Mother Earth

Our second-to-last airing of this gem is upon us; our final airing will be sometime on Saturday. While Tracy Nelson is the standout on this album, it’s much more than just a vehicle for her voice. It’s flat out a great album.

7:00 p.m. Eva Cassidy Live at Pearl’s Restaurant, Annapolis, MD, September 14, 1994 NEW!

Some people have commented that they’ve never heard Eva Cassidy before. That’s not surprising since she passed far too soon, at the age of 36, before really hitting her stride. But she’s left behind a great volume of work, and we’re about to add a bunch more into our standard rotation. During our hunt for her music, we found this great live soundboard performance. Don’t miss it.

Tune us in, people. You can’t go wrong here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’re on 24/7 unmolested by commercial advertising. And we’re totally free. What’s not to love?

We Head Toward The Weekend With a Fun Beatles Playlist, Volume 1 of ‘Repeat After Me’ and Our AOW, Thursday, January 27, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today it’s just cold, but by Saturday we could be buried in over a foot of snow in the Boston area. We’ll see how that goes. But today, we’re talking great programming.

Today’s Beatles playlist is all about their imaginary friends.

Here’s today’s musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Beatles: Songs With Character

The Beatles certainly have had their share of imaginary friends: Maxwell and his silver hammer, Jeremy Hillary Boob (aka, Nowhere Man), Lucy who flew around the sky with diamonds, the tiger-hunting Bungalow Bill (who always took his mom). And some have been drawn from real life, like Penny Lane’s barber, the man in the mack who wouldn’t let John and Yoko get married, and Eleanor Rigby. We’ve got them here for you today in one place.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan

Once again, we’re winding down on this one and are preparing for the next album. This is our next-to-last airing. Our final will be on Saturday.

7:00 p.m. Repeat After Me: Various Artists

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and this playlist proves it. Here we give you the original versions of some great songs along with their reboots. You know, like Tumblin’ Dice by The Rolling Stones covered by Linda Ronstadt and Thirteen Days by J. J. Cale covered by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Get the drift here?

Today we’ve added listeners from the Republic of Korea, Pakistan, Lithuania, and Turkey to the mix. When are you coming on board? It’s a really simple process. All you need to do is pull up a tab and use the button below. End of story.

The Petty Party Nears It’s End With The Bootleg Series Vol. 2, and We Start With ‘What’s In a Name?’ on Friday, October 30, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! The great mix continues today, as we gear up for the winter months here on the East Coast. We’ve got some fun here today as Petty Month winds down.

Just perfect for today’s programming.

Here’s what’s on tap for today:

12:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s in a Name? Various Artists

This is just a great playlist that’s like Open Stream for namedroppers. Not a bad song in the lot, and a lot of fun.

Some of the namedroppers are Linda Ronstadt, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Daywalkers, The Who, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Chuck Berry, Bonnie Raitt, CSNY, The Rolling Stones, Badfinger and so many more!

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Bootleg Series, Volume 2 NEW!

We have volume two from the years 1976-1981 as part of our Bootleg Series today. There are some things you otherwise may not hear in this lot. We just live for this stuff here in The Mermaid Lounge.

We have many new live performances coming up for the winter months here by Tom Petty and others as well. Come the first week in November, you’ll see our winter programming begin to evolve. The one constant? The music. Uninterrupted by advertising or chatter and at no cost to you. It’s a labor of love. I am sharing my personal record collection with you all. Right now, it’s 2,600 songs and counting, built over many years of collecting.

We Set Up the Weekend Petty Party With a Trip Through Live Anthology, and Put Emmylou In The Spotlight, Thursday, October 22, 2020

And did we mention our new Three-in-a-Row feature here in The Mermaid Lounge? Listen for it throughout the day here as you enjoy our minimal-intervention format.

Emmylou Harris. What more needs to be said about this woman?

Here’s Thursday’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris

I’m not sure what words can be used to describe Emmylou Harris’ brilliant musical journey. I can say this with a chuckle. I never paid any attention to country music on any level until I heard Elite Hotel. I remember distinctly saying to my oldest sister, “There’s something wrong with me. I’m suddenly into country music.”It was a great awakening, thanks to Emmylou. (But, oh, yeah: I’m not into the “bad pop bands with fiddles” as described by Tom Petty. He got the whole country thing.)

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology Trip

This live release is amazing. You get to hear stuff you might not otherwise hear in a live format, and you get to hear one of the greatest cover bands as they shove all those classic rock n’ roll numbers into their live shows. Enjoy this as we prepare for Petty’s Birthday Bash this weekend.

I’m a person of few words this morning. I’m not going to bug you about tuning us in. No sir. Your loss. Know what I mean?

Pssssst…don’t forget to listen for those Three-in-a-Row moments!
