Don’t be surprised if you start to hear music from Townes Van Zandt, Dave Van Ronk, Tim Buckley, and Jakob Dylan in the next few weeks. It’s part of a new folk music infusion at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
They’ll be joining Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan in the rotation now. We’ll be adding to this growing list in the future and will keep you updated as we grow!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have an open stream day today with the exception of Gram Parsons turn in the spotlight as we celebrate his life.
This is our only planned program for today:
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Gram Parsons
Gram Parsons died at the age of 26. By that time he’d had a solo career, had been part of The Byrds, and a member of the Flying Burrito Brothers. He had also heard Emmylou Harris sing and had found an immediate connection. Ultimately, it was Parsons who brought her to the forefront.
Today, Gram Parsons is rightly considered a pioneer in country rock. We celebrate his birthday anniversary with great affection here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Enjoy wide open streaming the rest of the day at
Good Evening, Ungovernables! It’s the last day of PettyFest here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio and we’re going out in style!
Here’s your program list:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty’s Final Interview
Contrary to urban legend, Tom Petty did not know he was going to pass into the great wide open. He had plans.
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
The things they did just for fun and because they liked each other.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Santa Monica (12.31.78)
The legendary New Year’s Eve show with a great version of Shout.
10:00 p.m. Happy Anniversary, Damn The Torpedoes!
The Heartbreakers’ signature album was released forty years ago on October 19th. It’s time to celebrate. This is an expanded version of the album, with some outtakes and demos. Enjoy!
Good Evening, Ungovernables. We have some great topics of interest here tonight, including a supergroup that nobody calls a supergroup. But this is a fucking supergroup.
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton: The Trio Collection and More
These three might be the only all-female supergroup that ever was, but that is exactly what they were. This playlist encompasses 2.5 hours of incredible music from their Trio albums, and more. There are alternate versions, outtakes that have never been heard before, and remixes/remasters. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
4:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
As I’ve said many times, most bands would kill for their B-sides.
9:00 p.m. Steve Early, Townes VanZandt and Guy Clark Live at the Bluebird Cafe
Three of the outlaws of country music. When Tom Petty calls most ‘country’ groups around today “bad pop artists with fiddles,” he is not talking about this trio, that’s for sure.
11:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Hypnotic Eye
This is not only one of the greatest Tom Petty albums ever, but one of the best albums of all time. See for yourself.
