Good Morning, Ungovernables! It is yet another Monday, and we’re off to a full slate of special programming on this fine day!
10:00 a.m. George Harrison & Friends: The Concert for Bangladesh
“Cause” concerts are old hat now, but when George Harrison and quite a few of his friends took the stage on December 20, 1971, it was a first. This is where it all began.
1:00 p.m. Chris Hedges: America, The Farewell Tour
Chris Hedges talks about his most recent book, how and why we came to be in this sorry state, and the eventual fall of Empire. I saw this tour when his book was first published. It is quite sobering.
4:00 p.m. Heart of Mine: Maria Muldaur Sings the Love Songs of Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan didn’t just write protest songs, and Maria Muldaur is one of that great class of women who graced the airwaves during the 70s along with Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, they frequently visited each other’s albums!
7:00 p.m. Chris Hedges and Medea Benjamin of Code Pink Talk Iran
Chris Hedges talks to Medea Benjamin about the very real and dangerous potential for war with Iran.
10:00 p.m. Dylan & The Dead
A special encore performance of this great playlist!
