Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday in fucking paradise! It’s looking dreary here, but the music is outstanding!
Here’s your Monday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Lucinda Williams Live at the Fillmore!
Lucinda Williams always said she’d rather play multiple nights at the Fillmore than play in an arena. She was definitely at her best in this venue.

Duane Allman, Mike Campbell, Jimmy Page, John Fogerty, Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Andrew Gold, and Bonnie Raitt, among others…

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have a brand new Album of the Week, and it’s our Sixties Rotation Sunday!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
10:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy NEW!
Nobody can ever accuse Linda Ronstadt of resting on her laurels. She was always in pursuit of the next musical adventure. The absolute best thing about Ronstadt — at least for her true fans — was that she refused to have her music defined by anybody. To put it bluntly, she sang because she loved singing.
This album was released on July 25, 2006. It would be Ronstadt’s last studio album before her retirement in 2011, and her revelation about having Parkinson’s Disease. Her musical partner is the amazing Ann Savoy, a Cajun music singer with a band called The Magolia Sisters. Ronstadt is technically a soprano; Savoy an alto. They had made duets before for a Cajun tribute album. Here, they unite as The Zozo Sisters, and the result is stunning.
Absolute Fact: Linda Ronstadt’s ultimate desire was to be part of an all-girl band. Those were the kinds of projects she sought out for herself.
2:00 p.m. The Sixties on Sunday!
We’re back with five hours of musical programming that defined a generation. From The Beatles, to The Kinks, to Barry McGuire, Lulu, Del Shannon, and Bob Dylan. It’s all here!
So, it’s Sunday. A day of rest. What are you going to do about that?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great new Beatles’ playlist today and a new Grateful Dead jam later tonight!
Here’s your Saturday line-up!
12:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Band by The Band
The final airing of this masterpiece will be at noon today. Tomorrow, when you wake up and run to the blog, you’ll see a brand new Album of The Week.
5:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformative Years NEW!
This is the most amazing period in The Beatles’ musical journey. Beginning with Rubber Soul and Revolver, they seemed to just explode into a level of creativity that had never happened before, and has yet to be equalled by any band.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead: Live at The San Francisco Civic Auditorium, December 28. 1983 NEW!
Another fine live entry by the ultimate jam band.
We’ve got a lot of listeners, but not a lot from the U.S. by comparison. What’s with that, people? No time for music?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some great music lined up for your Friday, no matter what you’re up to.
Here’s your Friday line-up!
12:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years
We’re moving onto those crucial middle years with a brand new playlist on Saturday, Seems to me this would be a good time to give a listen to their early work.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning FINAL AIRING THIS WEEK!
This is the final airing if Episide 2. We will have a brand new episode on Monday.
6:00 p.m. Rock, Blues & Ballads, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
We’ve greatly expanded this playlist since its last airing! Hear J.J. Cale, Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Gregg Allman, Steve Winwood, Maria Muldaur, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, and more!
Tune us in, people! Time waits for noone!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re got some interesting programming today, including a new live performance by Badfinger.
Here’s today’s programming!
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dr. John
I find it hard to believe that people wouldn’t know Dr. John (aka, the Nitetripper) a man whose music defied labels by combining blues, pop, jazz, boogie-woogie, funk and rock n’ roll.
3:00 p.m. Badfinger Live at the BBC 1972-1973 NEW!
Here I am in 2020, and I’m still a big-time Badfinger fan. This was, simply put, a band that made some great music. Had they not been screwed over by their manager, the sky was the limit (in the immortal words of Tom Petty).
6:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Band by The Band
The Band is a thing of beauty. There is nothing bad in their music catalogue, and they have withstood the test of time.
Please tune us in. We’re free. There are no commercials. No politicians. No bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a full slate today, including Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash’s Nashville Skyline sessions!
Here’s your mid-week lineup!
12:00 p.m. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash, Nashville 1969 NEW!
During 1969’s Nashville Skyline sessions, Bob Dylan teamed up with Johnny Cash to record a dozen songs, only one of which made it to the album. These informal recordings are relaxed and loose, and are easy on the ears…a meeting of two giants. The back-up musicians include Carl Perkins on guitar.
3:00 p.m. Dusty in London: The Lost British Recordings
Dusty Springfield truly epitomized the term “blue-eyed soul,” and her career spanned five decades.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young
Speaking of legendary artists, Neil Young has been a part of our musical DNA since the sixties as well, as a solo artist and with the Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
9:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning
The second episode of the series!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Tuesday Bluesday, and today we feature two guitar gods — Duane Allman and Eric Clapton — in some studio jams!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Band by The Band
Coming on the heels of Music From Big Pink, Robbie Robertson becomes The Band’s creative force and the rest is musical history.
3:00 p.m. Duane Allman & Eric Clapton: Studio Jams 1-6 NEW!
Can you imagine Duane Allman and Eric Clapton hanging out in a studio together? No need to use your imagination. It really happened.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
This playlist spans Lennon’s musical career. The songwriting combination of John Lennon & Paul McCartney remains the most successful in music history.
What in the world are you waiting for? We’re free. No commercials. No politicians. No bullshit. Just great music.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back at another Monday, and we have some great music and mayhem on tap.
Here’s your Monday line-up!
11:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning
We move on to Episode 2 of our old time radio show, The Inner Sanctum.
2:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Monday!
Today in the Spotlight, we have Mudcrutch. The band that would morph into the force that’s known as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. In reality, Mudcrutch was a force unto itself, returning under Petty in 2008 to make some brilliant music. Failing to see this band during it’s small-venue tour in 2016 is one of the great regrets of my musical life.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Led Zeppelin NEW!
We’re spending some quality time with the original headbangers tonight. Formed in London in 1968, they celebrated their 50th year in service to the musical masses in 2018.
Where you at? Tune us in. We’re free and always will be.
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.
