Today We’ve Got “Aftermath” by The Rolling Stones as Our AOW, and A Long Afternoon of ‘Travelin’ Fever’ On Sunday, August 7, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Do you have that ‘hit the road’ kind of feeling? Well, we here in The Mermaid Lounge are about ready to move someplace cooler. It’s only appropriate that we give you our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP today.

We’ve got our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ multi-artist EP up at mid-afternoon today!

Here’s your Sunday musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Aftermath by The Rolling Stones NEW!

The Rolling Stones recorded this album at RCA Studios in California in December of 1965 and March of 1966 during breaks in their international tour. It is considered to be an artistic breakthrough for the Stones. It is the first album of original compositions they released, all credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Brian Jones also began taking a more active role in their music, experimenting with instruments they’d never used before, including sitar, Appalachian dulcimer, Japanese koto, and marimbas. Aftermath topped the British album charts for eight consecutive weeks and eventually achieved platinum album status from the Recording Industria Association of America (RRIA).

3:00 p.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

One of our favorite EP’s is up today as we spin up Travelin’ Fever. Lately we’ve had the desire to get out of this hothouse and move to cooler digs. We’re waiting for the heat to break with Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Steve Miller Band, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogelberg, Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings, The Doors, The Eagles, Little Feat, The Band, Willie Nelson, Edwin Starr, Janis Joplin, Guy Clark, The Traveling Wilburys, Asleep At The Wheel, The Byrds, Joan Baez, Mudcrutch, Loggins & Messina, Buffalo Springfield and more!

Hey, if you’re inside today (and if you live in these here parts, I’d advise that), this is the perfect day to give us a spin. Look at strictly the upsides: We do not clog our music stream up with advertising. Because we don’t accept any commercial advertising. There’s only an occasional station break courtesy of yours truly. Lasts seconds at most. You know, so you know where you’re getting all this great music. No talkative DJ’s either. We’re on 24/7, not just when we have programming. And we don’t cost you a cent. Here are the downsides (to those who even consider these downsides): You can’t create personal music collections (we’re a radio station like the old days, sorry). We don’t play disco, or rap, or hip-hop. Neither do we play head banging heavy metal. Sorry, we’re not all things to all people. Give us a listen. You won’t regret it.

It’s Midweek Once Again With Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP and a Long-Awaited Wilbury Wednesday Coming at You on July 6, 2022

Good Morning, Road Warriors! If you’re the traveling kind, then this day is perfect for you. We’ve not only got our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP, but it’s a long-needed Wilbury Wednesday!

The Traveling Wilburys in the post-Roy Orbison timeframe

Here’s your midweek lineup:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

Road music. That’s what we’ve got here from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Canned Heat, the Steve Miller Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogelberg, Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings, The Doors, The Eagles, Little Feat, The Band, Willie Nelson, Edwin Starr, Janis Joplin, Guy Clark, The Traveling Wilburys, Asleep at The Wheel, The Byrds, Joan Baez, Mudcrutch, Loggins & Messina, Buffalo Springfield and more!

7:00 p.m. WILBURY WEDNESDAY! The Traveling Wilburys: The Bootleg Collection

It has been far too long between Wilbury Wednesdays and we aim to rectify that little problem today. We’ve got it all here: rough cuts, alternate versions, special sessions, and the final product all rolled into one great playlist. One musical journey that should not be missed!

This is undoubtedly a most excellent day to choose this little station, particularly if you like to sit and daydream about getting out of this right-wing gulag. But that’s another story for another day. We’d love to have you join your friends from around the globe today. The first time will not be the last time.

We Hit Our Midweek Stride With a Case of ‘Travelin’ Fever’ and the Promise of TLA Later, Wednesday, June 8, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers everywhere! We are at midweek with our great ‘Travelin’ Fever’ multi-artist EP and our answer to Monday’s heartbreak.

We start our musical journey with our multi-artist ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP!

Here’s your midweek lineup:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

Yes, sir. We’re on the road for this musical journey. It’s all about location, location, location and how we manage to get to those locations. You’ll hear Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jackson Browne, the Steve Miller Band, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogelberg, Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings, The Doors, The Eagles, Little Feat, The Band, Willie Nelson, Edwin Starr, Janis Joplin, Guy Clark, The Travelin’ Wilburys, Asleep at The Wheel, The Byrds, Joan Baez, Mudcrutch, Loggins & Messina, Buffalo Springfield, and more!

7:00 p.m. True Love Always: Various Artists

On Monday, we heard from the lovelorn. Today, it’s the opposite side of the coin. You’ll hear The Hollies, Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Jackson Browne, George Harrison, The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Boz Scaggs, Delaney & Bonnie, The Band, Buffalo Springfield, Van Morrison, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder, Basia, Bonnie Raitt, Guy Clark, The Mamas & The Papas, Dusty Springfield, Maria Muldaur, Valerie Carter, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt, Swing Out Sister, Donovan, and more!

We have two great multi-artist playlists for you today, one an EP and one not. Either way, we’ve got some seriously good material here for you with a theme. We have fun putting them together for you so, dammit, you’d better have fun listening to them. For free. And we’re free and running 24/7.

It’s Sunday and We’ve Got Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP and The Dirty Knobs With Our Album of The Week, May 8, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers and Mothers everywhere! Today we celebrate Mother’s Day here in The Mermaid Lounge with our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP and a brand new Album of The Week!

Today we’ve got Travelin’ Fever, even though we’re going nowhere!

Here’s your Sunday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: External Combustion by Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs NEW!

Today we have the second full outing of music from Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs, and some of it sounds very Pettyesque. And that is always a good thing from our perspective. It’s also to be expected since some of the songs were written while Campbell was lead guitarist and co-songwriter with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. That’s not to say that Campbell and his gang aren’t their own band. They surely are, but the influence is unmistakable.

3:00 p.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

We bring back our Travelin’ Fever EP today. It’s starting to warm up here and people are getting the travelin’ bug. Pretty soon, I’ll be bitching about the heat because here in New England, we go from 50 to 80, according to next weekend’s predictions. But I digress, today you’ll hear Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Steve Miller Band, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogelberg, Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings, The Doors, The Eagles, Little Feat, The Band, Willie Nelson, Edwin Starr, Janis Joplin, Guy Clark, The Travelin’ Wilburys, Asleep at The Wheel, The Byrds, Joan Baez, Mudcrutch, Loggins & Messina, Buffalo Springfield and more!

Sunday is a day of rest and it’s Mother’s Day to boot. Allow me to say again, ad nauseum, that it’s a great day to tune us in. We’ve got Germany, the UK, France, Greece, Faroe Islands, Russian Federation, Chile, Canada, Spain, Portugal, Texas and California on already this morning. Tune us in.

Today We’ve Got Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP, With Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Live From Wembley Later, Friday, April 8, 2022

Good Morning, Road Warriors! Today we’ve got our Travelin’ Fever multi-artist EP up first, with some live Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young a bit later.

Here’s today’s line-up:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

This one’s a bit different than yesterday’s ‘On The Map’ although some elements certainly are the same. This is more about hitting the road than locations with Canned Heat, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Steve Miller Band, Dan Fogelberg, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Eagles, Little Feat, The Band, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Edwin Starr, Janis Joplin, The Traveling Wilburys, Asleep At The Wheel, The Byrds, Mudcrutch, and more!

7:00 a.m. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Live at Wembley Stadium, London, November 4, 1974

My second favorite supergroup right here, right behind The Traveling Wilburys. They were always an adventure, so they should have been called Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young. But their music is timeless in all their iterations.

Tune us in, folks. We are up and running 24/7 totally free of charge and totally free of commercial advertising. What more could you possibly ask for. Maybe that we play rap and hip & hop, but that’s not going to happen either.

We Hit Our Midweek Stride With Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP and Laura Nyro Live at The Fillmore, Wednesday, March 9, 2022

Good Morning, Travelers and Daydreamers. Today we’ve got our EP all about hitting the road, and we continue our celebration of the women of music with Laura Nyro.

Laura Nyro is one of the greatest singer-songwriters of her generation.

Here’s your midweek line-up:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

When we were kids, my friends and I dreamed of buying a VW van and driving across country. We pretty much never made it out of the driveway, although we did drive to Nashville to visit the Grand Ole Opry. In this playlist you’ll hear Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, The Box Tops, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Canned Heat, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Del Shannon, Guy Clark, Asleep at the Wheel, Jesse Winchester, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Led Zeppelin, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Willie Nelson, the Marshall Tucker Band, Fats Domino and more!

7:00 p.m. Laura Nyro, Live at The Fillmore East, New York, NY, March 30, 1971

Sweet Blindness, Gonna’ Take a Miracle, Stoned Soul Picnic, Eli’s Coming…Laura Nyro wrote some brilliant songs that put others on the map. But there’s nothing quite like hearing her sing them herself. See for yourself tonight at 7:00 p.m.

We’re out there playing music for your listening pleasure 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. All totally free of charge, and we do not accept any advertising. We pay for this out of pocket as a labor of love. Tune us in. We’re not kidding here. No strings.

At Midweek, We’ve Got Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP & Bonnie Raitt In The Spotlight, February 9, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve reached our midweek stride here with our multi-artist ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP, and Bonnie Raitt In The Spotlight later on.

Here’s today’s line-up:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

We’re back on the road with the musical road warriors today for an extended trip around the planet. You’ll hear The Grateful Dead, Jackson Browne, Edwin Starr, The Marshall Tucker Band, Dan Fogelberg, The Box Tops, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Canned Heat, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Janis Joplin, The Eagles, Guy Clark, Asleep At The Wheel, Jesse Winchester, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Emmylou Harris, Led Zeppelin, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Willie Nelson, Carole King, Fats Domino and more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Raitt has been serving up great music for half a century now, combining blues, country, folk and rock into her own great signature sound. Let’s also not forget that she’s one of the greatest slide guitar players on the planet. We rightfully put her In the Spotlight tonight. Be there or be square, as they say.

Before, in between and after, we run 24/7 with our great wide Open Stream with The Music Mermaid calling the shots. She does, as you know, have impeccable taste in music. Tune us in. We’re totally free with no strings and no hidden costs. We don’t ask for a credit card, a subscription or personal information. And we don’t give Joe Rogan a platform either.

It’s a Snowy Morning in the Beantown Area and We’ve Got ‘Travelin’ Fever’ in The Mermaid Lounge…Along With Eva Cassidy In the Spotlight Later, Friday, January 7, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are on our first snowy morning of the season. It’s a great day musically to get snowed in. I am not that fortunate as I must dig myself out in the next couple of hours. But you, my friends, are all set for the day here.

Today we’ll help you get to know Eva Cassidy as we put her In The Spotlight.

Here’s your snow day line-up:

11:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

For some, there’s nothing like the lure of the open road…no ties, no roots, just going. It’s a popular subject in the music world as well, as you will see if you tune us in this morning. You’ll hear Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, The Box Tops, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Canned Heat, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Del Shannon, Guy Clark, Asleep At The Wheel, Jesse Winchester, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, Linda Ronstadt, The Grateful Dead, Edwin Starr, The Marshall Tucker Band, Emmylou Harris, Little Feat, The Byrds, Willie Nelson, Arlo Guthrie, Carole King, Fats Domino, and many more!

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Eva Cassidy NEW!

Eva Cassidy is someone we here in The Mermaid Lounge are still getting to know ourselves. She was largely unknown outside of the D.C. area for most of what can only be called a very short career by most standards. She died tragically from melanoma at the age of 33. She moved in and out of various bands, did some time as an artist, and then returned to music. You can read more about Eva here. We are still sourcing more of her music, but felt as though we had enough to spotlight her, so we did. We promise this will be updated, but Eva has a beautiful and emotive soprano voice and she lends it wonderfully to interpretations of jazz, pop, folk and blues. We have a recording of her live at Blues Alley in Georgetown that we’ve played before. We’ll get it back on the programming circuit in the next several weeks.

What could be a better antidote to winter than getting socked in with great music? Why fret? Just push the button below. We promise it won’t cost you a penny. And we also promise no commercials or self-absorbed disc jockeys. Honest.

We’ve Got ‘Travelin’ Fever’ at Mid-Week, and We Put Steely Dan In the Spotlight Later, Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Gooooooood Morning, Music Lovers everywhere! We’ve hit mid-week once again and we’ve got our most excellent ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP to kick off the day. We put Steely Dan front and center a bit later.

We put The Dan In the Spotlight later, but first we go Travelin’

Here’s your mid-week programming:

11:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

In the time of COVID, I’m not interested in planes, trains, or boats packed with people, so I’ll live vicariously through this great EP. You’ll hear Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, The Box Tops, Canned Heat, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Guy Clark, Del Shannon, Asleep at The Wheel, Jesse Winchester, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Led Zeppelin, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and more!

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

I’ve heard some pretty dumb comments about Steely Dan. You know, like they can’t reproduce their sound “live.” Having seen them, that’s bullshit. Steely Dan made some of the absolute best music of the seventies and eighties. They fused pop, jazz, and rock into a sound all it’s own. They are In the Spotlight here tonight.

It’s December, so give yourself a Christmas present that’s totally free. Better still, try us out and then give a gift to someone you know loves music. Tell them about us. That’s free too. No commercials. No mouthy DJ’s. No hidden costs. No personal information required. Merry Fucking Christmas. Tune us in.
