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!
