Good Morning, Ungovernables! We move out of the Summer of Love celebration, but it never really goes away because it’s the very DNA for this station.
We’re putting a caption here because you probably won’t recognize these guys. But The Electric Prunes made one of the greatest psychedelic songs of the sixties. You’ll have to tune in tonight to find out what it is.
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Revolver by The Beatles NEW!
Revolver was the seventh studio album by The Beatles, the greatest band in rock n’ roll history. It resulted in the double A-side single of Eleanor Rigby and Yellow Submarine. It was also the Beatles’ last recording project before their retirement as a touring band. This album was amazing on so many levels, and it signaled a metamorphosis in the Beatles’ music going forward. Many articles have been written about the album, all worth reading. In short, it is considered one of the most influential releases in modern music history because of the vast range of musical styles covered and the technology employed. The songwriting also took a leap forward. Although much is made of Harrison’s later contributions to The Beatles’ repertoire, Taxman was actually George Harrison’s breakthrough song.
3:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Vic Theatre, Chicago, April 19, 2003
One of my all-time favorite live performances delivered by The Heartbreakers right here for all of you to enjoy along with me.
7:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists NEW!
Yes, the Summer of Love festivities formally ended yesterday, but it’s always the Summer of Love here. That’s the DNA for this radio station. So, today, we cover something we did not get to over the past two weeks or so. It’s a doozie, as my mother would say. The Electric Prunes, Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Doors, The Jefferson Airplane, The Beatles and many more!
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That sounds pretty good to me on a lazy, sunny Sunday. We’re free. We’re totally outside the system. And we’re commercial- and talking head-free.
