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.
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!)
