Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s yet the beginning of another work week (unless your last one never ended), and we hope we can make your life a little brighter. Here’s your playlist for today!
10:00 a.m. Petty Theft: The Covers
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers loved to play the music that influenced their music, and they did it just about the best of any band ever. From Chuck Berry, to The Beatles, to JJ Cale, it doesn’t get any better than this.

There are three wars you don’t criticize here in Empire: The Revolutionary War, The Civil War and World War II. Howard Zinn will criticize all three, thank you.
4:00 p.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists
Pick your poison; we’ve all been here. Lynyrd Skynryd, Jonathan Edwards, Little Feat, and a few other artists will tell you how they feel about being under the influence.
