Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light programming day as we add new music and playlists. Today’s feature comes from The Byrds!
Here’s your line-up for today:
11:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship FINAL AIRING!
We bid farewell to The Death Ship today, and will have a brand new episode on Monday!
7:00 p.m. The Byrds Live at Royal Albert Hall, London, May 13, 1971 NEW!
The Byrds were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1964. The Byrds’ line-up changed many times over the years, but Roger McGuinn was the one constant presence in the band. McGuinn was responsible for the band’s signature sound, courtesy of his 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. The sound was adopted and refined by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers years later. In fact, Petty was photographed with his beloved 12-string Rickenbacker on the cover of Damn The Torpedos.
It’s Friday and the weekend’s coming. There’s no better time to tune us in!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have great music on top, including an interlude in the early evening from our sisters up north, Kate & Anna McGarrigle.
Here’s your musical landscape for today:
11:00 a.m. Drivin’ Songs: Various Artists NEW!
Driving. It’s something most of us do and, for some, it cannot be avoided. Some drive for a living. It goes without saying that good driving songs are essential under these circumstances. We’ll share with you some of ours. Now, some of these songs are indeed about being on the road. Some others? Hell, they are just great songs to drive to. Let’s not get too analytical here.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
It’s hard to find an album these days with 15 songs on it. And it’s even harder to find an album with 15 really great songs.
7:00 p.m. Tell My Sister: The Unreleased Recordings of the McGarrigle Sisters
I call the McGarrigle sisters the Canadian Treasure, but they are also ours. Maybe you know their most famous songs; maybe not. And maybe you do but don’t realize they were behind those songs. Like, Linda Ronstadt’s Heart Like A Wheel? Maria Muldaur’s Cool River? Emmylou Harris’ Going Back To Harlan? They also have a bunch of unreleased stuff. That’s what you’ll be hearing this evening. And you will be hearing more from them down the road as we expand our library.
Come on, people. Give it a shot. We don’t have money to spend on advertising and PR. We need your help. Come spend some time with us. It requires no money. Ever. If you like us, tell others.
