The Big “O” in the Spotlight, New “Live” Music From Derek & The Dominos, and The All-Girl Revue is Back on Monday, March 30, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve dug deep on the live music today to bring you Derek & The Dominos! Sit back and enjoy the music.

Derek & The Dominos

Here’s today’s line-up:

1:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding (aka, The Big O)

Gone before his time at the age of 26 in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of five teen-aged members of the BarKays, who had been recording and touring with him. The former well-driller from Macon, Georgia, is considered one of the greatest singers of all time, and certainly a pioneer in soul music and R & B.

4:00 p.m.   Derek & The Dominos Live!   NEW!

Derek & The Dominos was formed in the spring of 1970 by singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, and drummer Jim Gordon. They had all played together previously in Delaney & Bonnie and Friends (who you will hear on our station in the very near future). Also contributing to their musical efforts were Dave Mason, George Harrison (the band was formed while he was making All Things Must Pass), and legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman.

7:00 p.m.   The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1

Sit back and enjoy Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carlene Carter, Irma Thomas, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Lulu, and Patti Smith…just for starters.

It doesn’t get any better than this, Ungovernables! We’re totally OUTSIDE the system.

Tom Rush in The Spotlight, Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Hang Out, and “Who’s Next,” Thursday, March 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Listening to #BecomeUngovernable Radio has been proven to be very good for your emotional well being. (Not really. I just made that shit up.) But you should tune us in anyway. We’ve got a good one today.

TOM-RUSH

Here’s your social distancing line-up!

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Who’s Next, by The Who

There’s a very interesting story behind this album and where the material evolved from. You can learn more by clicking on the image to the right in the Album of the Week feature box.

2:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush     NEW!

Tom Rush is one of those guys who could easily go unnoticed, but that would be a giant mistake. Tom Rush has influenced an entire generation of musicians, including Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. He is credited by Rolling Stone magazine with creating the era of the singer-songwriter. Tom Rush has been a quiet force in music for a very long time. I recently saw him in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (his birth place), and he was doing just fine at 79.

7:00 p.m.       Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck: Live at the Country Club, Receda

Tune us in, people. All you need is a computer or a phone.

It’a The Sixties On Sunday & Our New Album of the Week (Who’s Next), March 15, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Yes, it’s our monthly Sixties on Sunday play day, and we introduce our brand new Album of the Week!

The Sixties Rotation

Here’s your programming, and don’t be fooled by the light programming! Tune us in!

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Who’s Next, by The Who   NEW!

Who’s Next was the fifth studio album released by The Who. It was born from what was intended to be a follow-up multi-media opera to Tommy called Lifehouse written by Pete Townshend. In fact, the only song not originally from Lifehouse was My Wife, written by John Entwhistle.

Regardless of how it came about, Who’s Next is a great album with a bunch of really great songs. Not every album has to be a ‘concept’ album to be relevant. 

2:00 p.m.      The Sixties on Sunday: The Playlist

From the British Invasion to Woodstock and beyond. The best music on the planet. Now a monthly staple on #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Fuck this government.
