Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today would have been Guy Clark’s 77th birthday, and we’re doing the bookend thing to celebrate his extraordinary talent. If you don’t know Guy Clark, you should make it a point to get to know him.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Guy Clark, Steve Earle, and Townes Van Zandt: Live at the Bluebird Cafe
2:00 p.m. The Band: Music From Big Pink
This is the stuff that legends are made of. In this case, that is certainly true as The Band is one of the finest musical ensembles ever.
5:00 p.m. Johnny Winter: Live at Hondarribia (2011)
The real deal bluesman here.
9:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Guy Clark
This is another one of those guys whose passing leaves a hole, like Tom Petty and John Lennon, that just cannot be filled. I found this brilliant story teller quite by mistake in the middle of a snowstorm, trying to find somewhere to get inside from the nasty weather. Maybe later tonight as I’m listening to this, I’ll tell my story.
In between, it’s just kick-ass music at www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio
