Programming for Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your planned programming for today! It’s David Crosby’s birthday, so today’s special is In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. That will air at 4:00 p.m. EST.

In between, we’ve got about 8,000 songs in the rotation now, adding more daily. Today, we’ll take the station down early again and add more!

Janis 1969

10:00 a.m.   Janis Joplin Live at Winterland 1968

Warming up with Janis as we prepare for our Woodstock weekend!

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: Fascism In the Age of Trump

Like it or not, the only bipartisan program our legislators have is screwing us over. Trump is no savior. He’s no “outsider.” He’s no exception. In fact, he’s exactly the kind of garbage that a dying empire has left to offer.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young

Happy Birthday, David Crosby!

7:00 p.m.    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the Enslavement of the American Worker

It’s all part of the grand scheme.

Programming for Thursday, August 8, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we this fine day? We have a great lineup today, including an all-new In the Spotlight!

Fats Domino

10:00 a.m.   Badass Guitarists, Volume 1: Various Artists

Name them: Eric Clapton, Mike Campbell, Keith Richards, George Harrison…and that’s just for starters.

1:00 p.m.    Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Casualties of the Vietnam War (The Lost Speech)

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Fats Domino

The heralded ‘fat man’ from New Orleans who has influenced so many gets his day in the spotlight.

7:00 p.m.   Chris Hedges: War is a Force Which Gives Us Meaning

As a veteran war correspondent, Chris Hedges has survived ambushes in Central America, imprisonment in Sudan, and a beating by Saudi military police. Here, he discusses our attraction to waging war.

Programming for Monday, August 5, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s yet the beginning of another work week (unless your last one never ended), and we hope we can make your life a little brighter. Here’s your playlist for today!

The Arawak Indians

10:00 a.m.   Petty Theft: The Covers

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers loved to play the music that influenced their music, and they did it just about the best of any band ever. From Chuck Berry, to The Beatles, to JJ Cale, it doesn’t get any better than this.

1:00 p.m.     Howard Zinn: The Three Holy Wars

There are three wars you don’t criticize here in Empire: The Revolutionary War, The Civil War and World War II. Howard Zinn will criticize all three, thank you.

4:00 p.m.    Under the Influence: Various Artists

Pick your poison; we’ve all been here.  Lynyrd Skynryd, Jonathan Edwards, Little Feat, and a few other artists will tell you how they feel about being under the influence.

7:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 2

In Ravage, Kill, Mangle and Destroy, Deb Della Piana talks about the horrors unleashed upon the indigenous people by Christopher Columbus and his successors.

 

Programming for Sunday, August 4, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here is your special programming for Sunday, August 4

BabyStones

10:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

Walter Becker and Donald Fagan made some of the sweetest sounding music around during the 70s.

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: Fascism in the Age of Trump

The Democratic Party’s demonization of Trump aside, the notion that he is a “good guy” here to rid the world of pedophilia, cure childhood cancer and AIDS is patently absurd. He’s another egomaniacal, gluttonous capitalist here to take us the rest of the way over the cliff.’

4:00 p.m.    The British Are Coming!

Come and give a listen to the most formidable bands of The British Invasion!

8:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths and Omissions: Episode 2

In Ravage, Kill, Mangle and Destroy, we get a good look at the havoc that Christopher Columbus has unleashed on the indiginous world.

Programming for Saturday, August 3, 2019

Happy Saturday, Ungovernables! And so the weekend begins (unless you’re in retail, like I am where the shopping never stops). Here is your programming for today!

Bobby

10:00 a.m.   The All-Girl Revue: Various Artists

One of the big goals of this station is to elevate the pioneer women of rock. People like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Laura Nyro, and others whose playtime on rock radio over the years has been stifled by focus on the men. It’s as simple as that. Linda Ronstadt achieved the popularity of a Mick Jagger as a female in music at a time when music was very anti-female, and finally — five decades later — her story will be told. She is but one of the featured artists on this great playlist.

By the way, Volume 2 of this playlist will debut next week. 

1:00 p.m.    Robert F. Kennedy’s ’68 Election Townhall Speech

I adore nobody. I fully respect several, however, and this man is one of them. Would we have had a different nation? In my heart of hearts, I believe yes. Perfect? Utopia? I hate to tell you this, but that does not exist anywhere. But I will tell you something else as well. Had John and Bobby Kennedy lived out their normal lives, we would not be here. We would not be in utopia. We would have our problems and issues. But we would not be here. And I also believe this was not coincidence.

4:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Olympic (The Last DJ Tour)

I say it all the time: It does not get any better on the road than this. If you haven’t experienced this band live, you haven’t experienced this band. This is, without a doubt, one of the tightest bands ever in the history of music. We’ve got a ton of stuff like this and, apparently, Mr. Petty left behind enough unfinished business to keep us going for a very long time.

7:00 p.m.   Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 1

Deb Della Piana takes on the ghost of Christopher Columbus, not one of the good guys no matter what they want you to believe. This will be the final airing of this episode before the first airing of Episode 2.

 

 

 

Programming for Friday, August, 2, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! TGIF, baby! We’ve got a great day ahead that includes two brand new playlists for your listening pleasure. Both are “don’t miss” events!

tom with the Shelters

10:00 a.m.   Badass Guitarists, Volume 1: Various Artists

This playlist could have gone on forever. Instead, we’ll break it down into small bites. It lasts longer that way. From Mike Campbell of The Heartbreakers (The guitar solo at the end of Runnin’ Down a Dream has a life of its own and is untouchable) to Slowhand, to Jimmy Page, this is the best of the best here.

1:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 1

This is a repeat performance of the very first episode from last Sunday before we release Episode 2. This will repeat one more time tomorrow as well. This episode is entitled Christopher Columbus Was Not a Hero. Learn about the man heralded as one who found the new world but who, in reality, unleashed a nighmare on the peaceful Native Americans already living here.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

We don’t often spotlight new music, but we are today. Tom Petty had a ton of musical projects in the fire, one of which was mentoring a young band named The Shelters. In fact, he produced their first record in 2016, which was recorded at The Clubhouse, where Petty and The Heartbreakers recorded. Give a listen to the Shelters. They’ll also be added to the Standard Rotation.

7:00 p.m.   The Secret World of U.S. Elections

Back before Julian Assange was vilified by a clueless American public following the lead of the fraudulent mainstream media, he gave us some insights into the reality of our elections. Trust me when I tell you it has not improved. In fact, like everything else when left unattended, it has gotten worse.

Programming for Sunday, July 28, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! I’m off to a late start with the posting, but the station has been up and running for hours! Here is your programming for Sunday, July 28.

This day marks the debut of Lies, Half Truths, and Omissions: Revisionst American History. In our crosshairs tonight is Christopher Columbus, the man who got the ball rolling on Native American genocide. Tune in tonight at 8:00 p.m.

Christopher Columbus-1

10:00 a.m.   Across the Borderline: Bob Dylan in Concert with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Somewhere around 1986, Bob Dylan asked Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to go on tour around the world with him. It marked the beginning of a great friendship that ended up with the formation of The Traveling Wilburys. This is the result.

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges on The Empire of Illusion

If you think nothing you are living right now is real, Chris Hedges will help you sort that out. The reality is that nothing is as it seems here in Empire.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Rolling Stones

Great band. Great music. Great memories.

8:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist History in America

Tonight the subject is Christopher Columbus, a man who has been made larger than life for many years, who has a national holiday, and literally millions who do not know his true legacy because we were never taught it.

Attention Listeners! The station will be taken offline at 9:00 p.m. for a fresh infusion of music files, and a system update.

Programming for Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Good morning, Ungovernables! Working the early shift, so I wanted to get this posted. We are up and running every day at 6 a.m.

Neil Young Performs Live At Wembley Stadium

10:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young

One of a rare breed, like Tom Petty, who has remained true to himself through a long, winding, and glorious career. A prolific singer/songwriter.

1:00 p.m.    Alison Weir: The Global Campaign to Stifle Criticism of Israel

Alison Weir, founder of the If Americans Knew Blog, breaks down this insidious global effort to stifle free speech and criticism of the state of Israel.

4:00 p.m.    Mudcrutch Madness

If you don’t know the band Tom Petty left Gainesville with back in the day, you might want to get to know them. Bringing them back together in 2009 was one of the best ideas Tom Petty ever had.

7:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: A Radical Green Party Strategy

Although somewhat dated, this is a valuable look back. What if the Greens had adopted this strategy instead of pursuing the path they did? It’s a pretty safe bet that they are not in a position to win any time soon on the national stage. Perhaps if they’d listented, things might be different for all of us today.

 

Programming for Saturday, July 20, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s today’s playlist, and it’s a day dedicated to the women of rock!

emmylou-older

11:00 a.m.  Martin Luther King on the Three Evils of Society

A nearly forgotten speech given by Dr. King at the first and only National Conference for New Politics (see, we’ve been at this crap for a long time), focusing on war, racism and poverty.

1:00 p.m.   Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks and Forgotten Gems

This is our very first hour featuring Emmylou Harris, but I promise it will not be our last! Some of Emmylou’s friends come along for the ride.

4:00 p.m.   War with Russia?

Chris Hedges interviews Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian Studies at Princeton University on the dangerous game we are playing with Russia.

8:00 p.m.   The All-Girl Revue

No day dedicated to the women of rock would be complete without one of one of my very favorite playlists, so enjoy!

Programming for Friday, July 19, 2019

US-investment-in-5G

Good Morning, Ungovernables! TGIF and all that stuff, right? Unless you’re in retail, like I am. No matter. We’ve got a great lineup for you today here!

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

These guys made some of the most innovative music on the planet in that sleek jazz-rock style. A great band.

2:00 p.m.        Dr. Martin Pall on the Health Dangers of 5G

Dr. Martin Pall of the Biochemistry Department at Washington State University discusses the health dangers of the looming 5G techology.  We think this is a very dangerous technology and encourage you to also look here.

5:00 p.m.       Petty Theft: The Covers

No  matter where they played, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers paid homage to those who inspired them and had an effect on their success. Here, the Heartbreakers do their mentors proud covering Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead and Bo Diddly. One of my favorite playlists EVAH.

8:00 p.m.       Chris Hedges: Fascism in the Age of Trump

There are no solutions on eiher side, unfortunately. Many think Donald Trump was sent to “drain the swamp.” The exact opposite is true, despite those who remain delusional. Donald Trump is a product of a very sick system, much like his 2016 challenger, The Hillarious One. But make no mistake about it. Our present march to fascism, and it is happening, is being led by The Orange Scourge.

Remember, to check out the Playlist tab for content!

Note: We will again be uploading a bunch of new material over the weekend, and it will require shutting the server down. Time is TBD, but we will be sure it is later in the evening.
