Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there. My daughter always says “Mother’s only half a word in our house.” She wasn’t kidding either.
Here’s your Mother’s Day lineup!
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
Yes, with and without the Heartbreakers. Mostly with, though. Listen, their B-sides are better than most bands’ A-sides. And that’s no lie, as you will see if you tune in.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Band. By The Band. NEW!
The band that began as Bob Dylan’s back-up band went on to become one of the most influential bands of its generation, and delivered the goods every time out. This effort came after Music From Big Pink, another great musical achievement. But this one saw Robbie Robertson take charge, and the The Band took a huge leap forward.
The Band, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Beatles, remains one of #BecomeUngovernable’s favorite house bands.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Little Richard NEW!
Richard Wayne Penniman, also known as Little Richard, was a rock n’ roll pioneer who broke down many barriers in his lifetime. He influenced many who came after him, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whose early efforts were steeped in rhythm & blues. He passed away yesterday at the age of 87, and today we pay tribute to his greatness.
It’s Mother’s Day. Tune us in. You won’t regret it.
