The Beatles, The Heartbreakers, The Traveling Wilburys and Aliens, Saturday, October 5, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Another full day as the Petty Party continues. Today, we have Tom Petty “live” with the Heartbreakers and recorded with the Traveling Wilburys.

Here’s the line-up:

10:00 a.m.    The Beatles: The Complete Apple Records Rooftop Concert

The fans loved this impromptu concert, but the British Bobbies were beside themselves trying to figure out where the music was coming from. It stopped traffic in the middle of London on a work day.

1:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Here’s some material you don’t hear every day, like Girl on LSD, Cabin Down Below and a spectacular 11-minute jam on one of my all-time favorite Petty songs, It’s Good To Be King.

4:00 p.m.      The Ungovernables Report

Our third and final airing over the weekend.

6:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys

They didn’t do it for money. They didn’t go on the road. They were five friends who enjoyed each other’s company and had a blast making music together. Add legendary drummer Jim Keltner, and you cannot go wrong. We think it shows.

11:59 p.m.    Orson Welles’ Original Broadcast: War of the Worlds

What might seem amateurish to us today scared the living shit out of everyone back in 1938. Get the popcorn ready.
