Welcome to what feels to me like the umpteenth introduction of #BecomeUngovernable Radio. I promise, however, this one is for real. I promise to try daily to post special programming. Not only will we have some of the best music around, but we’ll have podcasts, interviews and, eventually, “live on air” programs.
#BecomeUngovernable Radio operates from 6 a.m. to midnight every day. All times are Eastern Standard Time. Times may change or be adjusted as demand requires and our audience grows!
At present, we have about 25,600 of our 50,000 songs uploaded. We will continue to upload over the next several weeks. As we upload more, we will add more special programming.
For our official “launch” on Sunday, July 7, here is the planned special programming that will break up what we call the “General Rotation” (which we hope you will love).
9:00 a.m. That Sweet Soul Sound
Generally speaking, a classic Motown play list featuring Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, and Aretha Franklin, to mention just a few.
1:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Live from Lucca, Italy (2012)
You haven’t experienced the Heartbreakers if you haven’t experienced them “live.”
4:00 p.m. Interview: Chris Hedges with WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson
The politically-motivated imprisonment of Julian Assange and continued persecution of Chelsea Manning are issues of prime importance to us. This is an excellent and timely interview.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt, Live in Hollywood (1980)
Despite a prolific career, there has never been an official Linda Ronstadt “live” album until February of this year. All songs were chosen by Linda Ronstadt for this amazing performance coinciding with the release of Mad Love.
