Laura Nyro in the Spotlight, Little Feat “Live” in Boston, and Our New Album of The Week, Sunday, March 29, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a rainy Sunday here, and perfect for settling in and listening to non-stop music. Just whistle while you plot a revolution.

little-feat-live-album-crop-2-1200x632

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Album of the Week: Souvenirs, by Dan Fogelberg

This was Dan Fogelberg’s second studio album, released in October 1974, and it’s one of my favorites. I’m not one to listen to music critics, and albums like this make me happy that I don’t. He has a lot of really legit help here: Don Henley, Russ Kunkel, Al Perkins, Graham Nash, and Glenn Frey. Produced by Joe Walsh. Give it a listen.

3:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro

Laura’s compositions have resulted in hits for many, like The Fifth Dimension, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Three Dog Night, and Peter, Paul & Mary. Now, it’s her turn in the spotlight.

6:00 p.m.     Little Feat, Live at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, MA  NEW!

What can you say about Little Feat? I’ve seen these guys — in their Lowell George iteration — several times. They are untouchable. We’re working on some new live stuff beyond this as well for down the road a piece.

Don’t know what it’s doing there, but as long as you have a computer tab or a phone, there’s always time for music.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Music is my great release in a time of stress, and I’m grateful to have #BecomeUngovernable Radio. You should give it a shot and tune us in. We’re rockin’ out with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Crank it up.

Here’s today’s programming!

Canada has given us some brilliant musicians, Joni Mitchell being one of them. Court & Spark was Mitchell’s sixth studio album and it was released on New Year’s Day, 1974. It was a hit right out of the gate, both commercially and critically, and it remains as the pinnacle of Joni Mitchell’s long and fruitful career. 

All around and in between, we’re streaming more than 20,000 of the best songs you’ll ever hear. Tune us in, people.

Tom Rush in The Spotlight, Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Hang Out, and “Who’s Next,” Thursday, March 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Listening to #BecomeUngovernable Radio has been proven to be very good for your emotional well being. (Not really. I just made that shit up.) But you should tune us in anyway. We’ve got a good one today.

TOM-RUSH

Here’s your social distancing line-up!

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Who’s Next, by The Who

There’s a very interesting story behind this album and where the material evolved from. You can learn more by clicking on the image to the right in the Album of the Week feature box.

2:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush     NEW!

Tom Rush is one of those guys who could easily go unnoticed, but that would be a giant mistake. Tom Rush has influenced an entire generation of musicians, including Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. He is credited by Rolling Stone magazine with creating the era of the singer-songwriter. Tom Rush has been a quiet force in music for a very long time. I recently saw him in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (his birth place), and he was doing just fine at 79.

7:00 p.m.       Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck: Live at the Country Club, Receda

Tune us in, people. All you need is a computer or a phone.
