Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a brand new season as we roll into September! Even better, we kick it off with Tuesday Bluesday!
Here is your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George, John Hammond & Freebo, Live at Ultrasonic Studios, October 17, 1972 NEW!
Some of the best stuff we have is archival discoveries and, while they may not exactly be technically perfect, it doesn’t matter. A young Bonnie Raitt is hanging out with some friends here an they are conducting a textbook super session. Her youthful versions of Jackson Browne’s Under the Falling Sky and Chris Smither’s Love Me Like a Man are really great, but her version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is the most amazing.
When you toss in Lowell George, the grand master of Little Feat, John Hammond and Freebo, you’ve got a super group. Who is Freebo? His real name is Daniel Friedberg, and he’s legend in my generation, a super studio musician who has spent a lot of time supporting Bonnie Raitt. Freebo has also played with Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Aaron Neville, John Mayall and many other musicians.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles
The Revolver album signaled what was to come from the Beatles. It was a giant LEAP forward for the band in so many areas. This album is widely considered the most influential album in modern music. Find out why by tuning in.
7:00 p.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session, Recorded Live at CHCH-TV on December 6, 1983
Two blues masters were recorded live at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, when SRV was 29 years old and King was 60. You can read more about this legendary blues session right here.
Come on, people, it’s a great time to tune us in. We’re here. We’re free. We ask for nada, and we operate totally outside the system. Oh, yeah, we also play great music — rotating more than 25,000 songs — on a 24-hour basis. Non-stop musical nirvana.
