Good Morning, Petty Lovers! We’re back celebrating Tom Petty’s life today with a really excellent outing from the 30th Anniversary Tour in 2006.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Stephen C. O’Connell Center, Gainesville, Florida, September 21, 2006
This was a great outing all around as The Heartbreakers played their hometown on the 30th Anniversary Tour, replete with a visit from Stevie Nicks. We know you’ll enjoy this one.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Just A Stones Throw Away by Valerie Carter
Sadly, we’re winding down on this week’s selection. This is our second to last airing, with the final being sometime on Saturday. Get it while you can. This is a great album, and Valerie Carter is a great singer-songwriter.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Steve Winwood
Steve Winwood has given us so much great music over the years. This Spotlight feature covers his time with The Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith, Traffic, and his solo career. You’ll hear a song titled Valerie in this set which is, oddly enough, said to be about the late, great Valerie Carter (see above). I saw him live at Great Woods (not when it was The Tweeter Center or The Comcast Center), and it was one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.
Join us today and celebrate Tom Petty Month with us. You won’t regret it. This is just one of the live performances you’ll hear this month, and it is one of the best shows The Heartbreakers have ever done.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have some sweet stuff in our musical bag of tricks today. You’re going to love it. But only if you tune us in!
Here’s your Thursday line-up!
12:00 p.m. Elvis Presley: The 1956 Nashville Recordings NEW!
The 1956 Nashville sessions resulted in the very first album ever released by Elvis Presley. The album spent ten weeks at number one, and became the first rock n’ roll album to hit the top of the charts. It was also the first million selling album of the genre. The album also spawned the number one hit single, Heartbreak Hotel, undoubtedly one of my favorite Elvis Presley songs of all time. They don’t call Elvis “the king” for nothing. He was the inspiration for many, including the Beatles and Tom Petty, who met him at the age of 11. The rest is history.
5:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformative Years
We are replaying this great playlist today that made its debut on #BecomeUngovernable Radio on May 16. Tomorrow, we add the third playlist in our Beatles series.
All three playlists are now up and available in the Playlist section of the blog. Just scroll to the bottom!
9:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Learning To Crawl by The Pretenders
We’re back with this great album from The Pretenders. If you haven’t heard it yet this week, you’ll only have Saturday. On Sunday a new album will be chosen.
Tune us in, people. You have no idea what you are missing!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to our Sunday programming here in the land of the shut-ins. We can make you feel better!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up
10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beatles
Not much you can say about The Fab Four that hasn’t been said already. They literally changed everything.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones NEW!
Let It Bleed is the eighth British and tenth American album made by The Rolling Stones, released in December 1969, shortly after the band’s North American tour. There was a lot of turmoil in the band during the recording of Let It Bleed. Brian Jones was in the midst of a drug meltdown, and was fired during the making of this album. He was replaced by Mick Taylor. Jones would die about a month after being fired.
6:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Roxy NEW!
Bob Marley was born in Nine Mile, British Jamaica on February 6, 1945, and began his musical career back in 1963. He is considered a pioneer in Reggae music, and developed his unique style by fusing elements of Reggae, Ska and Rocksteady. Marley helped to bring about the global acceptance of Reggae.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great day lined up for you today that includes the debut of The Lovin’ Spoonful.

11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Eat A Peach by The Allman Brothers Band
Eat A Peach was the third studio reording by the Allman Brothers Band, and was released on February 12, 1972 on the Capricorn record label. It was also the final album that Duane Allman would appear on, as he was killed in a motorcycle accident in his hometown of Macon, Georgia.
The double album is a combination of studio and live recordings, with and without Duane Allman, and includes the band’s famed 1971 Fillmore East performances.
