Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great day lined up for you as we keep the programmed parts of the day in the folksy genre with our great multi-artist EP and John Prine in the Singer-Songwriter Series finale for this week later.
Here’s your Friday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Folk Music From A-To-Z: Various Artists
Folk music was the original vehicle for protest music and it was largely acoustic, until a guy named Bob Dylan turned it on its ear by electrifying it. In this playlist you’ll hear John Prine, Dave Van Ronk, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary, Odetta, Cat Stevens, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, Arlo Guthrie, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, The Band, Eric Andersen, Tom Rush, Judy Collins, Nanci Griffith, Jesse Winchester, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Lead Belly, Tim Hardin, The Kingston Trio, Simon & Garfunkel, Richie Havens, Jackson Browne, Guy Clark, James Taylor, The Carter Family, Harry Chapin, Linda Ronstadt, Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt and more!
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of John Prine FINAL AIRING!
John Prine gets his final airing as our featured Singer-Songwriter for this week, and a fine choice he was. Nanci Griffith takes the spotlight on Saturday.
It’s a nice, low-programming day here in The Mermaid Lounge. Less programming = greater open stream. You’ll want to join your friends from around the globe as we bring you the finest sounds in classic rock with a focus on the sixties and seventies. No hip-hop, no disco, no rap, but we also have plenty of soul music and R & B because that’s the real stuff.
