Good Morning, Ungovernables, and happy Martin Luther King day. We added about a thousand new songs over this past weekend, so we’re definitely up for an open stream day here today.
We’ve added several new artists in The Cranberries, Jimmy Buffett, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Toots & The Maytals, The Smithereens, The Velvet Underground, James Taylor, Lulu (“Darling”), King Crimson, Kris Kristofferson, Professor Longhair, and Duane Allman.
We’ve also fattened up the selections of Grace Slick by adding her work with The Great Society, J.D. Souther, Joe Walsh, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Loggins & Messina, The Animals, and more “live” Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Grateful Dead.
We’ve been busy over the past couple of weeks, sourcing and adding new music to the standard #BecomeUngovernable Radio rotation. We currently have about 20,000 songs rotating, with about 30K in the cue waiting.
Some of the new additions include Pink Floyd, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Dillard & Clark, Don Covay & The Jefferson Lemon Blues Band, Sam & Dave, The Undertakers, and Lesley Gore.
We have also added a couple of new Grateful Dead gigs for our Saturday night “Live Dead” shows, and have added to the libraries of Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt, Jerry Jeff Walker and others.
On December 10, 1967, Otis Redding was killed when the twin-engine Beechcraft he was riding in crashed in the icy waters of Lake Monona, just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Redding was just 26 years old, and had just recorded his only number one hit, (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay three days before his death.
It’s not uncommon for us to go on music hunts to find new stuff. We did that with Otis Redding and were able to add material we had not seen when we first began uploading to this station. We have added it to the standard rotation. In addition, we added these new artists over the past several days:
Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station)
Hank Williams Sr.
Kate & Anna McGarrigle
We also added to the Tom Petty and Grateful Dead libraries.
We have new shows on tap, and we will announce one of these by the weekend. The only way you hear about this is by following the blog, folks!

6:00 p.m. Petty Theft: The Covers

A news and analysis show called The Ungovernable Report will debut tomorrow morning on #BecomeUngovernable Radio at 9:00 a.m. The show is entirely research, written and produced by Sarah Freels, Terri O’Connor, and Adam Rice.
The broadcasts will be repeated on Fridays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 7 p.m. for those who miss the first scheduled broadcast.
In addition to the show, the notes and links to the research will be carried on our blog. You will be able to access that via link when we post the daily progamming.
