We Open Tuesday Bluesday With Trifectas, Close with Robert Johnson In the Spolight, and Slot Our AOW in Between, November 28, 2022

Good Morning and welcome to Tuesday Bluesday! We’ve got a great line-up for you all today, including a brand new Spotlight featuring the great bluesman Robert Johnson.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

9:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday Trifectas: Various Artists

Today we have the second airing of this week’s featured album by Creedence Clearwater Revival, their third release in 1969 alone as they burst onto the music scene.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Robert Johnson NEW!

Robert Johnson only lived to the ripe old age of 27. He is a bona fide member of the 27 Club, and his musical recording career lasted a grand total of seven months. However, his recordings from 1936 and 1937 are historic and expose a combination of songwriting, singing and guitar playing that has influenced generations of blues musicians. Johnson is known as the master of the Delta Blues and one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes Robert Johnson as “the first ever rock star.”

Tuesday Bluesday is always a full house, folks, and today is no exception! Join your global friends as we focus on the blues this fine Tuesday. We’re totally free 24/7. There are no surprises. And we don’t employ overly-chatty DJ’s. We’re all about the music.

Monday Brings Two ‘Live’ Gigs, One From Hot Tuna and One From Mudcrutch, Later It’s Open Stream With Trifectas, September 12, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Monday has reared its head here in The Mermaid Lounge and I’ve got a morning mission of mercy on tap. The Music Mermaid, however, is here to take care of our musical musings for the day.

Here’s your musical landscape today:

12:00 p.m. Hot Tuna Live at Sweetwater, Mill Valley, CA, January 27-28, 1992

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard this one, so step right up and get yourself some live acoustic blues from a great band that knows how to deliver.

4:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Live at The Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, CA, June 26, 2016

Speaking of great bands, we’ve got the tour I deeply regret missing when it pulled into Boston’s House of Blues where the definitive live version of Hungry No More was recorded. I haven’t yet gotten over my short-sightedness on this one. It is a Monday and this is Mudcrutch and, while I’m not declaring it Mudcrutch Monday, it technically is. I felt the need to say that.

After Mudcrutch, it’s wide Open Stream with the Mermaid in charge. I hear she’s got some unannounced Trifectas planned, so I’d better leave it that way. She says you’re just going to have to listen to find out who’s on tap at the top of selected hours. Some of them are new. But my lips are sealed.

It’s Friday and We’ve Got Otis Redding, Trifectas at the Top of Every Hour, and Our ‘Here Comes The Night’ EP Later, September 2, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great day lined up today as we feature our first night-time multi-artist EP at the request of some of our late-night listeners!

We feature our first EP at night this evening at the request of some of our late-night global listeners!

Here’s your musical lineup:

9:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding

The world first heard Otis Redding at the Monterey International Pop Festival. It would not be long after that performance that we would lose him. But his musical legacy lives on here in The Mermaid Lounge.

5:00 p.m. Mudcrutch

6:00 p.m. The Traveling Wilburys

7:00 p.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists

5:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt

6:00 p.m. The Supremes

The First Tuesday Bluesday of the Year is Upon Us and We’ve Got Johnny Winter and a Blues Trifecta Afternoon, January 4, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! I know that day will come when I’ll write 2021 by mistake. But that’s not today. We’ve got a great Tuesday Bluesday line-up going on today and we hope you’ll join us.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Winter NEW!

John Dawson Winter III is one of our favorite bluesmen here in The Mermaid Lounge. He’s got his own high-energy blues-rock style. Although not a pure bluesman, Johnny Winter was sought out by other bluesmen and jammed with many, including Muddy Waters, Roy Head and the Traits, Mike Bloomfield, Willie Dixon, and Big Walter Horton. Winter was groundbreaking in many ways and was recognized as one of the best guitarists in the business. You can learn more about him right here. Today, we kick off Tuesday Bluesday by putting him In the Spotlight.

We’ve Got A Totally Wilbury Wednesday Surrounded By Wide Open Stream, December 15, 2021

Good Morning, my musical friends! We here in The Mermaid Lounge have decided that this is a pretty good day for a Totally Wilbury Wednesday, and so it shall be.

Today belongs to the greatest supergroup ever!

Here’s your mid-week line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Traveling Wilburys: The Bootleg Collection

Every poll ever taken in the past twenty years that I’ve seen has resulted in this band being remembered as the greatest supergroup of all time. And I fully concur. Today we’ve got a gem for you with outtakes, rough takes, alternative versions, final versions and special sessions. It’s a look inside the music making of The Traveling Wilburys. For those who have not yet immersed themselves in this band, you can explore the website right here. You can also watch this short documentary from George Harrison here. It’s all great fun, I assure you.

3:00 p.m. The Wilbury Trifecta Afternoon!

We get back to streaming for the rest of the day, but starting mid-afternoon we kick off trifectas by members of the band (although not Wilbury music). Do you get that? Or did I confuse you?

3:00 p.m. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury)

4:00 p.m. Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Junior)

5:00 p.m. George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury)

6:00 p.m. Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury)

Did you know that they changed their names again for Volume 3? And by the way, there was never a Volume 2. Just sayin’

This is a great day to make us your music source. Trust me. We’re totally free 24/7. We run no advertising. We don’t require a credit card or personal information. What else could you possibly want but a free radio station that spends it’s time pumping out music?

11:00 a.m. The Complete Trio Sessions with Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris
