Good Morning, Ungovernables! Not only do we have some of the best music on the planet, but we’re starting something fun today. It’s a brand new twist.
10:00 a.m. Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape (April 26, 1968)
Here’s some musical trivia for you. Did you know that Stephen Stills taught Jimi Hendrix how to play guitar? True story, people. Rumors abound in the music world, however. And rumor has it that this little masterpiece was recorded while Stills was at a Judy Collins recording session. He simply told someone to “just roll tape.” And voilá.
1:00 p.m. Orson Welles: The Original Broadcast of War of the Worlds (10/30/1938)
Yep. This is the one. The original radio broadcast that scared the living shit out of millions of Americans. Let’s do this in honor of the “storming” of Area 51, which has morphed into a fucking party. (You knew that would happen. This is America.)
4:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band: Play All Night, Live at The Beacon Theater
The big boys of Southern rock.
8:00 p.m. Howard Zinn: The Three Holy Wars
Howard Zinn will tell you that there are three wars you don’t ever criticize in America: The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, and World War II.
