The Heartbreakers Live on Soundstage, The All-Girl Revue is Back; So is Live Dead and UNCHAINED, Saturday, October 17, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Saturday is always our busiest programming day and that holds true today as well. But trust me. It’s all good, as they say.

Bertha. Lookin’ Good.

Here’s your Saturday line-up!

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live on Soundstage, April 19, 2003

This 2003 performance remains one of the best recordings of any band live anywhere on the planet. I’m not the only one who shares that opinion either. The Chicago location opens up all the possibilities of a blues outing, and the band does not disappoint.

3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Unchained by Johnny Cash FINAL AIRING!

The final airing of this great album is mid-afternoon today. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new album featured on the blog.

7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3: Various Artists

Tune in to nearly two hours of music with Linda Ronstadt, Phoebe Snow, Lydia Pense (a blast from the past; the lead singer of Cold Blood), The Shirelles, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, and many more!

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, August 13, 1975 NEW!

No two shows the same. Ever. Even on consecutive nights. That’s the legend of The Grateful Dead.

We’re pretty busy this morning. People from around the world are tuning in already. That’s good. Because tomorrow, we begin unveiling Wallflowers & All The Rest from Tom Petty. Be here or be square, as they say.

Creedence Clearwater Revival in The Spotlight, UNCHAINED is Back, The Heartbreakers From Lucca, Italy, Thursday, October 15, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists and welcome to another day from The Mermaid Lounge where we offer quality programming, minimal talk, and great 24/7 streaming.

Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the best damned bands on the planet.

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

With the incredible John Fogerty at the helm, Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the best damned rock n’ roll bands on the planet. That four guys from Berkeley could make that authentic Swamp Music sound was equally amazing.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Unchained by Johnny Cash

We’re winding down here. We have one more airing after today, so don’t forget to tune it. It’ll be gone before you know it, and a brand new album will take its place on Sunday.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Live at The Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012

Yet another road show from the ultimate road band. I keep saying it: You don’t realize how good these guys really are until you’ve experienced them live. Luckily, I did several times, but certainly not enough.

We’ll keep saying it until someone in the U.S. listens: We’ve got listeners all over the world. You ought to figure out why. And you can only do that by listening in.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday! The Doors Live in Detroit, The Super Session is Our Bluesday Offering, UNCHAINED is back, and a Tribute to the Original Wildflowers Album, October 13, 2020

It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge, but that portion of the program comes a bit later. We’ve got some great music leading up to that.

The Doors live on stage, 1967

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Doors Live at The Cobo Arena, Detroit, May 8, 1970 NEW!

Brand new to The Mermaid Lounge, delivered by Elves late one evening after a mushroom party. (I made that up.) Enjoy this great concert in spite of my bad fiction.

4:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

As we eagerly await the release of Wildflowers & All The Rest, it’s time to go back to the original and remember just how fucking great this album is.

7:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday! The Super Session (1968) NEW!

Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper (the original lead singer of Blood, Sweat & Tears), and Stephen Stills lay it down. This one is also new to us even though it’s been on my hard drive for years. (Hey, there’s still a ton of shit to go. Okay?)

10:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Unchained by Johnny Cash

It’s only fitting that Tom Petty and his bandmates play a role in this great album. Tom Petty had more credibility in traditional country music than any other rocker on the planet. This one won Cash a Grammy.

Well, children, this is probably a really good day to tune us in. You might like it so much that you come back tomorrow. Who knows? As my grandmother said, you won’t know until you try it. And it’s free.

Very sorry for the late post today, but we are indeed up and running great programming today here from The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Unchained by Johnny Cash NEW!

This isn’t just country from Mr. Cash. It’s more like country rock as he’s backed by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and produced by Rick Rubin! Although there are some Cash compositions on this album, he also focuses on covers, including Petty’s Southern Accents. This won Johnny Cash a Grammy.

2:00 p.m. Tom Petty: Wildflowers & All The Rest: The New Releases

Once again, we play you the five new releases from the upcoming Wildflowers package, which will be released on October 16.

4:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists

More than five hours of sixties music from a variety of artists: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, The Kinks, The Searchers, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane and more!

What the hell are you all waiting for? Get your shit together.
