Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s September, and we are now well on our way to our winter of discontent. Here is your scheduled programming today, including a sweet new playlist from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.
10:00 a.m. Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton, Live from Madison Square Gardens (2008)
Their combined musical legacy includes Cream, Traffic, Derek & The Dominoes, The Spencer Davis Group, and Blind Faith. Together, they’re a force of nature.
1:00 p.m. Abby Martin: Propaganda and Consent for Empire
4:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: “Live” and Loving It!
Someone once told me that if you haven’t experienced the Heartbreakers “live” and in concert, you haven’t experienced the Heartbreakers. I have found that to be quite true. They were road warriors, and it shows.
7:00 p.m. Orson Welles and the Original Reading of “War of the Worlds” (1938)
Nothing could be more frightening that what’s actually going on here in America right now, but back in 1938, this scared the living shit out of plenty of people.
