The Big “O” in the Spotlight, New “Live” Music From Derek & The Dominos, and The All-Girl Revue is Back on Monday, March 30, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve dug deep on the live music today to bring you Derek & The Dominos! Sit back and enjoy the music.

Derek & The Dominos

Here’s today’s line-up:

1:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding (aka, The Big O)

Gone before his time at the age of 26 in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of five teen-aged members of the BarKays, who had been recording and touring with him. The former well-driller from Macon, Georgia, is considered one of the greatest singers of all time, and certainly a pioneer in soul music and R & B.

4:00 p.m.   Derek & The Dominos Live!   NEW!

Derek & The Dominos was formed in the spring of 1970 by singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, and drummer Jim Gordon. They had all played together previously in Delaney & Bonnie and Friends (who you will hear on our station in the very near future). Also contributing to their musical efforts were Dave Mason, George Harrison (the band was formed while he was making All Things Must Pass), and legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman.

7:00 p.m.   The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1

Sit back and enjoy Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carlene Carter, Irma Thomas, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Lulu, and Patti Smith…just for starters.

It doesn’t get any better than this, Ungovernables! We’re totally OUTSIDE the system.

2:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Joni Mitchell’s Court & Spark

We bid a fond farewell to one of the best damned albums ever recorded. Tomorrow when you wake up, there’ll be a brand new selection on our main page!

6:00 p.m.    B.B. King & Eric Clapton: Riding With the King

B.B. King and Eric Clapton seemed to be a natural combination, and we were right about that. You’ll love this selection.

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead: Europe ’72, The Grateful Dead Live in Aarhaus, Denmark 4-16-72   NEW!

After a brief interlude in Honolulu last week, we’re back on the Europe ’72 train this week as we work our way through the tour.

If you’re stuck in lockdown, there’s no better way to weather the storm than to tune in to #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

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.

5:00 p.m.   The Band: Live at the Casino Arena, Asbury Park, New Jersey (7-20-76) NEW!

Bob Dylan’s original back-up band became a musical force all their own. Today they make their concert debut here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
