What Better Way to Start Your Weekend Than ‘Under The Influence’ With Neil Young & LIVE DEAD? Saturday, January 15, 2022

Good Morning, Audiophiles! We begin another weekend (well, you do; I’ve got one more day of servitude) with a great EP about being under the influence, our AOW, and LIVE DEAD! later.

We’ve got another great episode of LIVE DEAD! coming up later tonight!

Here’s your Saturday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Come on. Fess up. We’ve all been under the influence at one time or another, and with both legal and illegal substances. Don’t deny it. Musicians rarely deny it. In fact, they sing about it. You’ll hear from The Doors, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Arlo Guthrie, The Byrds, Donovan, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Eric Burdon & War, The Fraternity of Man, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Janis Joplin, Neil Young and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Barn by Neil Young & Crazy Horse FINAL AIRING!

We warned you that it was coming, and it’s here. This will be the final airing of Neil Young’s 41st album, Barn, with his go-to band, Crazy Horse. This marks their 14th album together. Tune it in because tomorrow there’ll be a brand new album when you wake up.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City, NJ, August 6, 1974 NEW!

Another new soundboard recording from the ultimate road warriors for The Deadheads. This one is from Roosevelt Stadium, with over four hours of LIVE DEAD! music to close out your night!

Before, in between, and after our programming you’ll be treated to wide Open Stream courtesy of our Music Mermaid. As you should well know by now, she has impeccable taste in music. She’s a keeper.

Saturday is Best Experienced ‘Under the Influence,’ Along With Our Final Airing of the AOW, and LIVE DEAD Later, December 18, 2021

Good Morning, Head Trippers! We begin our day at mid-day today with our multi-artist Under The Influence EP, then move along to our weekend constitution from there.

We begin our musical journey today with Under The Influence at high noon.

Here’s your Saurday line-up:

12:00 p.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

This was originally a smaller playlist, but it had plenty of material for an EP, and so it was done. Whether your choice is legal or not, we’ve pretty much all been there at one time or another. Some of us remember the days fondly and will enjoy hearing The Doors, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Donovan, Eric Clapton, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Bob Dylan, Eric Burdon & War, The Fraternity of Man, Jefferson Airplane, and more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Brainwashed by George Harrison FINAL AIRING!

Today we bid a fond farewell to George Harrison’s twelfth and final album, an album that was brought to you lovingly by his son Dhani, and Jeff Lynne of ELO, and George’s bandmate in The Traveling Wilburys. Tomorrow, there will be a brand new selection when you roll out of bed.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Olde Renaissance Faire Grounds, Veneta, Oregon, August 27, 1972 NEW!

Another new live extravaganza from the consummate road warriors. I’m not sure how many people listen to the Dead’s studio stuff (I do), but I know far more people prefer them live. They are the world’s ultimate jam band for a reason. This performance is no exception.

Hey, it’s Saturday. Some of us are still in retail bondage, but many are not. What better time to make this your ‘go-to’ radio station? After all, it’s totally free of both commercials and overly-talkative DJs who like the sound of their own voices. All you need is a tab and an index finger. No lie.

Begin Your Friday ‘Under the Influence’, and Get In the Groove With Etta James Later This Evening, November 19, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We have go a brand new ‘extended play’ set list for you today as we’ve greatly expanded Under The Influence and brought it up to EP status.

We kick off the day today with our new Under the Influence EP!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists UPDATED & EXPANDED

It is with great pleasure that we give you this as our latest extended play offering. We had fun making this one happen. You’ll hear Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, The Beatles, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Small Faces, The Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Temptations, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne, Harry Chapin, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Burden & War, The Fraternity of Man, and many more as you expand the outer limits of your musical minds.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Etta James

Etta James’ career began the year I was born, in 1954. Right up through 2012, her big, earthy voice has interpreted many genres, including R & B/soul, the blues, gospel, jazz, and rock n’ roll. She gained fame with several hits, including Tell Mama, At Last, and I’d Rather Go Blind. She won six Grammy awards, and 17 blues music awards, and she is a resident of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame (1993), The Blues Hall of Fame (2001), and Grammy Hall of Fame (1999). Learn more about Etta James here.

Shall I say it yet again? It is a great day to tune us in. We’re finally as the end of the work week (for some lucky souls) and we’ve got this great new, inspirational extended playlist to share with you. That’s nearly five hours of uninterrupted tales of drugs, drink and rock n’ roll. Hey, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another. This is the most fun you can have without actually doing it.

It’s Friday and We’re ‘Under The Influence’ of Some New Trifectas, and We Put CSNY In the Spotlight Later, September 24, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! For most of us it’s the week’s end…but I’ve got one more day. But it matters not, people. The music is great today. You’ll see what I mean.

The Traveling Wilburys remain the greatest supergroup of all time for us, but these guys are right behind them.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Booze. Drugs. Legal or illegal. Whatever your poison. We’ve pretty much all been under the influence at one time or another. And it has always provided a topic for the music industry. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doors, Donovan, Linda Ronstadt, The Temptations, The Beatles, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen, Glenn Frey, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and more.

Afternoon Music Trifecta Afternoon NEW!

We continue to build our library of trifectas and premier several new ones today.

3:00 p.m. Three Dog Night

4:00 p.m. Carole King

5:00 p.m. Van Morrison

6:00 p.m. Sam Cooke

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The Traveling Wilburys reign supreme as the best supergroup of all time. But these guys were right behind them. Yes, they should be called Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young, but we think they were at their best with Young in the fold.

Again I say, it’s a great day to tune us in. It always is. So, what the hell are you waiting for anyway? We’re 24/7. We’re free. We do not run any advertising. We do not require a subscription. And we don’t ask for your personal information.

We’re Under The Influence, Maria Muldaur’s In the Spotlight, and We’ve Got a Pile of Trifectas, Monday, June 14, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s the beginning of another week here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re all business this morning. We’ve got a great line up for you today.

We’re Under the Influence today at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists EXPANDED!

Drugs, booze, you name it. We’ve all done it in our lifetime, and plenty of musicians and bands have written songs about it. We’ve got them here today in our expanded and updated playlist. Don’t be fooled into thinking Got To Get You Into My Life is about a woman and doesn’t belong here. McCartney himself admitted that he wrote it about his love for weed.

In addition to the Beatles, you’ll hear The Velvet Underground, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, and many more.

4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer who began her career in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village as part of the folk music revival of the early sixties. She has continued to roll on singing not only folk and blues, but jazz, country, pop, and R & B. She’s also loaned her pipes to the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt, and is one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Trifectas R’Us

We’re bringing back the trifectas today. It has been a while. We’ve got them scheduled as follows for your listening pleasure:

10:00 a.m. Aretha Franklin

2:30 p.m. Steve Winwood

6:00 p.m. Canned Heat

8:00 p.m. The Rascals

We hope you’ll tune us in today. We highly encourage this because we know we play the best damned music on the planet for free (no small print), non-stop 24/7. Just do it.

We’re Going Under The Influence, Airing Our Album of The Week, and Offering Up New Live Lukas Nelson & POTR on This Thursday, April 29, 2021

Good Morning, Folks! As I return to retail hell on this fine day (and hopefully not for long), we’ve got some great programming coming up in my absence. The Music Mermaid will handle the details.

We have Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real up in the early evening.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

We’ve all done it. Some of us do it every day. Functioning under the influence, that is. This great multi-artist playlist features Glenn Frey, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Donovan. The Traveling Wilburys, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, Neil Young, The Temptations, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Damn The Torpedoes! by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

We’re winding down on our Album of The Week. We’ll have one more airing of this fantastic album on Saturday. When you roll your butts out of bed on Sunday, there will be a new selection. So, get in on this now! The Heartbreakers’ breakout album for sure. And the rest, as they say, is history.

7:00 p.m. Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real Live at The Boathouse, Newport News, Virginia, June 14, 2018 NEW!

This is a great little band, and you know it’s great when a legend like Neil Young takes them on the road with him. They can stand on their own, however, and this is your chance to see that for yourself.

Tune us in, people. We’re not-for-profit. We accept no advertising and we sure don’t employ long-winded DJ’s. The Music Mermaid is silent but deadly in her selections.

Celebrating George Harrison’s Birthday, Rebroadcasting Our Album of The Week, and We’re All Under The Influence Later, Thursday, February 25, 2021

Happy Birthday to George Harrison, on what would have been his 75th birthday.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Wrecking Ball by Emmylou Harris

This is our second to last airing of this brilliant album, so hear it while you can! This was a career redefining project for Emmylou Harris, who teamed up with Daniel Lanois for Wrecking Ball. She not only has help from Lanois, but Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, and many others.

3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of George Harrison UPDATED!

George Harrison is one of those guys who was underestimated when The Beatles started out, but as time passed, people began to see just exactly what he was capable of. This newly-refreshed playlist features music from his Beatle years, his solo music, and his time as part of the brilliant supergroup, The Traveling Wilburys. Don’t miss celebrating on what would have been George Harrison’s 75th birthday.

7:00 p.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

This is one of our most popular playlists because, hey, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another…legally or illegally. You’ll hear Glenn Frey, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, John Lee Hooker, The Temptations, Donovan, The Traveling Wilburys, and more!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Someone famous said that. His name was Timothy Leary. The father of LSD. Appropriate, don’t you think?

Petty Month Draws to a Close With ‘Wildflowers’, We’re All Under The Influence, and Later Tonight: Live Dead, Saturday, October 31, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers. I trust your day will be a good one. Today we bid a fond farewell to another Petty Month. Hey, with any luck, we could be streaming from his birthday bash in Gainesville. Fingers crossed.

Today’s single Tom Petty offering is the All The Rest portion of the new Wildflowers project. These are the songs that would have made Tom’s double album had he released it back in 1994.

A fan’s fond farewell.

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty FINAL AIRING!

Today’s Airing: All The Rest

These are the ten songs that would have been included on the ideal Wildflowers double album set. Congratulations to his bandmates, family and friends for making this happen.

The boxed set entered the Billboard 200 at number 5. The re-issue of the album Wildflowers has gone to number 1. There is no question that the world misses Tom Petty’s music.

Afternoon Open Stream, 26,000+ Songs, No Advertising, Totally Free

Listen for those Three-in-a-Row interludes throughout the day!

7:00 p.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Now, being under the influence doesn’t always mean it’s illegal, mind you. But more often than not, it does. Don’t lie because we’ve all been there.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Dillon Stadium, Hartford, Connecticut, July 31, 1974 NEW!

Another great outing by The Dead. No two shows ever the same, even on consecutive nights. The ultimate jam band.

So, will this be your lucky day? Or are you still lost in the ozone? Time will tell, won’t it?

We’re ‘Under the Influence’ Today, Lucinda Williams Owns Our Album of The Week, and Spend Some Time With The Animals, Sunday, June 28, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Since I’m already under the influence, that’s how we’ll start our programming today. Beyond that, it’s a day of ‘firsts’ here.

Eric Burdon and the animals-4

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Under the Influence: Various Artists

Since I’m starting my weekend off under the influence, I feel we all should start our day that way!

3:00 p.m.   Album of The Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams   NEW!

Lucinda Williams is back, and we have her brand new album as our latest Album of The Week! It premieres here at 3:00 p.m. Read more about it here

7:00 p.m.   Deb’s Stream: Absolutely The Animals

Personally, I can’t believe it took me this long to put this playlist together. The Animals are undoubtedly one of the premier bands in the history of blues rock, and Eric Burdon is one of the best singers on the planet.

This would be a great day to tune us in. Actually, any day is a great day. So, just fucking do it:
