Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we on this fine morning? Here is your playlist for today. Giving it a break today: More music, less chatter. Hey, it’s Sunday! and it’s a Dylan kind of day.
10:00 a.m. Dylan and The Dead
Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead collaborate on some Dylan tunes both on vinyl and on the road. The team took to the road in 1987, and the album was released on February 6, 1986 by Columbia Records.
1:00 p.m. Across the Borderline: Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Bob Dylan and Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers decided to team up after Dylan complained that they never got anybody “cool” to open with. The rest is musical history, as two of the world’s greatest songwriters also became the best of friends, winding up in The Traveling Wilburys together (their playlist makes its debut on this station next week).
Across the Borderline is a record of Dylan and Petty live in Sydney Australia. There’s a great interview at the beginning of the playlist talking about how this collaboration all came about. It’s fascinating!
4:00 p.m. Martin Luther King: Why I Oppose the Viet Nam War
The mainstreamers always invokes “I Have a Dream” when someone asks about Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches, but this is one of King’s most inspirational speeches ever. If ever we need some kind of anti-war voice, it’s now.
Programming Note: We will be taking down the servers at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday evening for a major upgrade and the addition of new music.
