7:00 p.m.    William Blum: The CIA is a Terrorist Organization

Who better to give us the facts than William Blum, who spent a lifetime fighting American imperialism.

 

Programming for Saturday, July 27, 2019

Woodstock’s anniversary is coming up, but the Monterey International Pop Festival already cenetrated it’s 50th back in 2017. In the photo we have two attendees who left us way too soon, Brian Jones of the Stones and Jimi Hendrix.

1:00 p.m.    William Blum on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)

William Blum, who passed in 2018, was and is an important voice in this movement. He left the employ of the state department in 1967, and spent his life taking on Empire. Here he blows the whistle on the CIA.

4:00 p.m.    Petty Theft: The Covers

The same qualities that make Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers the greatest American rock n’ roll band of all time make them the greatest cover band of all time. This is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite playlists. Sit back and enjoy the Heartbreakers as they pay homage to those who have inspired them over the years.

7:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: The Wages of Rebellion

Chris Hedges gets some airtime from us once again so he can tell you the moral imperative of rising up.

 

Celebrating Woodstock’s 50th in August!

Woodstock-poster

On August 15-18, 1969, the grand kahuna of outdoor music festivals took place on Max Yazgur’s farm in Bethel, New York. People have been talking about Woodstock ever since. They’ve tried to replicate this event several times since then, but there will always be only one Woodstock…and that’s the original.

On August 15-18, #BecomeUngovernable Radio will celebrate the Woodstock music generation by playing music by all the bands that made Woodstock what it is: Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Janis Joplin, to name just a few. It marked the very first time anybody heard Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Join us August 15th to the 18th for three days of peace, love and music on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

(We’ll be giving you more details as the date gets closer!)

 

Programming for Sunday, July 21, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we on this fine morning? Here is your playlist for today. Giving it a break today: More music, less chatter. Hey, it’s Sunday! and it’s a Dylan kind of day.

Tom-Petty-Bob-Dylan-GettyImages-111588161-920x584

10:00 a.m.  Dylan and The Dead

Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead collaborate on some Dylan tunes both on vinyl and on the road. The team took to the road in 1987, and the album was released on February 6, 1986 by Columbia Records.

1:00 p.m.   Across the Borderline: Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Bob Dylan and Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers decided to team up after Dylan complained that they never got anybody “cool” to open with. The rest is musical history, as two of the world’s greatest songwriters also became the best of friends, winding up in The Traveling Wilburys together (their playlist makes its debut on this station next week).

Across the Borderline is a record of Dylan and Petty live in Sydney Australia. There’s a great interview at the beginning of the playlist talking about how this collaboration all came about. It’s fascinating!

4:00 p.m.   Martin Luther King: Why I Oppose the Viet Nam War

The mainstreamers always invokes “I Have a Dream” when someone asks about Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches, but this is one of King’s most inspirational speeches ever. If ever we need some kind of anti-war voice, it’s now.

 

Programming Note: We will be taking down the servers at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday evening for a major upgrade and the addition of new music.

Long after their touring days ended, the Beatles decided to conduct an unannounced, improptu concert during lunch hour to the thrill of the people below.

We start at 6:00 a.m. and we don’t stop until midnight. Join us on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
