Yes, Musicologists, it is a momentous day here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We have managed to celebrate someone’s birthday on time. See. Miracles are possible.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Gregg Allman Live at The House of Blues, New Orleans, December 31, 2012
I never understood people in the musical know who continue to debate which Allman was more important to The Allman Brothers. The simple answer is both of them. Duane was indeed one of those rare guitar gods. No question about it. But after his death, it was Gregg that held the band together. He was the songwriter, the arranger, and had an amazing voice. Today we have him live from The House of Blues in NOLA.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: We Ran by Linda Ronstadt
If you haven’t tuned this one in yet, I must tell you we are working on our second to last airing here on Thursday. This is Ronstadt’s most eclectic rock album, in my opinion, in spite of the fact that it come towards the twilight of her rock n’ roll career.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Foo Fighters
Today we are celebrating the birthday of Dave Grohl, singer and drummer for Nirvana, frontman for Foo Fighters, and near-drummer for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. (It worked out for all. Grohl got to start a great new band; the Heartbreakers got the amazing Steve Ferrone on drums.) Today we put Dave Grohl and The Foos in the spotlight.
Here we are toiling through another week. I have no idea how anyone does this without music. Listen, we don’t cost you a penny. We’re free. No credit card and no personal information required. Just pull up a tab.
