Today, It’s Janis Joplin With Big Brother for The Summer of Love, and We Celebrate The October “Wildflowers and All the Rest” Release with a TPATH Playlist, Friday, August 21, 2020

While we celebrate the music of our past, the future looms ahead of us with a much-anticipated Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers release. Today, on a light-programming day (meaning a lot of Open Stream), we celebrate both.

Here’s your Friday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts & B-Sides

You know, people, any one of the songs on this playlist could have been a hit. Not like this band’s hits were junk, like some others. Far from it. But this band produced so much good music it’s incredible. And it’s incredible that this band was firing on all cylinders 40 years later, because Hypnotic Eye, their last studio release in 2014 was about as good as they get. They are the house band for a reason.

7:00 p.m.    The Best of The Summer of Love! Big Brother and the Holding Company Featuring Janis Joplin   NEW!

This debut album was released in August 1967. Not surprisingly, it was re-released one month later with Janis Joplin’s name added to the cover and a couple of additional songs thrown in. We have it here for you today.

Come on, Empire dwellers, let’s get our shit together. Europe, Asia, and other more far-flug areas are all over this station. As usual, the toddlers are bringing up the rear.

Ronstadt’s Birthday Bash Continues & We’re All Having Deja Vu Here in The Mermaid Lounge, Thursday, July 16, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are continuing on with our party here. In fact, that’ll be happening for the next few days as we move into Women’s Week next week. Don’t be whining, gentlemen, there has to be at least one radio station that is willing to give women their due in this industry.

Linda ronstadt billboard-1

I flew out to L.A. for this concert on Christmas Eve. One of the most memorable musical events in my life. Was back for Christmas dinner. My mother told me I needed to have my head examined.

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Linda Ronstadt Live at The Troubadour, Los Angeles, March 17, 1976

The Troubadour. Kind of like The Cavern Club during the British Invasion years. Everybody played there — Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Tom Waits, Tim Buckley…and it’s still going strong. This particular appearance happened in the middle of Ronstadt’s meteoric rise to a position of power in a male-dominated business.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Déja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

This is the second album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, but the first with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. My friends and I used to call them Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young. This is a great album.

7:00 p.m.     Linda Ronstadt Duets & More  NEW-ish!

We’ve played this playlist once before, but then we added some stuff to it, so we’re taking the liberty of calling it new.  We don’t think you’ll mind once the music starts.

Here we are again, people. Trying to get the U.S. to tune us in. You are all woefully behind your world neighbors. This morning, we’ve got friends from Serbia tuning in. Where the fuck are you?

It’s Sixties Sunday and ‘Deja Vu’, An Album That Helped Us Move Into 1970, Is Our Album of The Week, July 12, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another Sixties Sunday and, oddly enough, our new Album of the Week is Déja Vu, an album that helped make moving into the seventies more palatable.

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Déja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young   NEW!

Déja Vu was the second album by Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the first by the quartet of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. And what an album it is. It has stood the test of time. To date it has sold more than 8 million copies and is still the number one selling album of each member’s career.

2:00 p.m.    The Sixties on Sunday! The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists

Traffic, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Vanilla Fudge, The Temptations, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Sly & The Family Stone and then some. Join us for a continual five-hour, no repeats, no commercial trip into the past.

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Someone famous said that, I believe. You should take his advice.

Jakob Dylan in The Spotlight, Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers at The Ryman, and the Final Airing of ‘The Man From Yesterday’ on Friday, July 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are again at the end of the week, and we’ve got some great stuff here. Today’s Emmylou Harris adventure is new to our station!

Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

Here’s Friday’s programming:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan (with and without The Wallflowers)

Yes, it’s Bob’s boy. And he’s really more than just a little good. Today we feature his solo stuff plus music he made with his band, The Wallflowers.

3:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday  FINAL AIRING!

Today will be the final airing of this weeks’ episode of The Inner Sanctum. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode.

7:00 p.m.     Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers Live at The Ryman (April 30-May 2, 1991)   NEW!

Emmylou Harris and her acoustic band, The Nash Ramblers, played three nights at the run-down Ryman in 1991. It is captured here in the 1992 Grammy Award winning performance. This event spearheaded the revitalization of the former home of the Grand Ole Opry. My friend George and I were so taken by country music back in the day, that we drove to Nashville to go to the Opry. It was 1977 and I was just 23; George was 21, We never got to see the Ryman Auditorium from the inside. By then, the Grand Ole Opry had moved to new digs. But I’m sure glad the Ryman is back.

We play some great shit. And we don’t over-play either. We run 24/7 and offer just about seven hours of programming; the rest is all open stream. We’re free. We don’t ask for your personal information. We do not require a credit card. Ever.

We Visit the Petty Archive for Some B-Sides, Introduce the New Album of the Week, and Pay Tribute to Little Richard, on the Mother of All Sundays, May 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there. My daughter always says “Mother’s only half a word in our house.” She wasn’t kidding either.

littleking-richard

Here’s your Mother’s Day lineup!

11:00 a.m.   Tom Petty: Deep Cuts and B-Sides

Yes, with and without the Heartbreakers. Mostly with, though. Listen, their B-sides are better than most bands’ A-sides. And that’s no lie, as you will see if you tune in.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: The Band. By The Band.   NEW!

The band that began as Bob Dylan’s back-up band went on to become one of the most influential bands of its generation, and delivered the goods every time out. This effort came after Music From Big Pink, another great musical achievement. But this one saw Robbie Robertson take charge, and the The Band took a huge leap forward.

The Band, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Beatles, remains one of #BecomeUngovernable’s favorite house bands.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Little Richard   NEW!

Richard Wayne Penniman, also known as Little Richard, was a rock n’ roll pioneer who broke down many barriers in his lifetime. He influenced many who came after him, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whose early efforts were steeped in rhythm & blues. He passed away yesterday at the age of 87, and today we pay tribute to his greatness.

It’s Mother’s Day. Tune us in. You won’t regret it.

The Heartbreakers’ Mojo Tour, Steely Dan Live in Houston, and “Running On Empty” Returns on Thursday, May 7, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve made it past midweek. That’s always an accomplishment in Empire. We’ve got some great music on tap too.

Steely Dan-2

Here’s your Thursday line-up:

12:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live on The Mojo Tour (1999)

My favorite road warriors return. To fully appreciate this band, you had to see them on stage. Maybe you never did. I suggest you might want to seek out some concert footage. They are everywhere. For a reason. This show is from August 3, 1999 when they played the Target Center in Minneapolis.

4:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty

Browne’s road anthem. Recorded entirely on the road: Live on stage. On tour buses. Backstage. And in hotel rooms. A classic.

7:00 p.m.   Steely Dan Live at The Woodlands Pavillion, Houston, Texas  NEW!

Our brand new musical offering comes from a great band. I almost believed the people who said they sucked in concert because they couldn’t reproduce their sound. Then, I went to see them for myself. I have to tell you, I had a great time every time. Sounded just fine to me. Enjoy this one from 1993.

You simply must get on the bandwagon, so to speak, and tune us in:

Bonnie Raitt-2

Here’s Monday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Bob Dylan & George Harrison Almost Went to See Elvis!

According to legend, Elvis stood them up. In fact, according to Dylan, they were supposed to record with Elvis and they stood him up. Nobody will ever know the truth. Maybe.

2:00 p.m.      Bonnie Raitt: Live at the Troubadour (1972)  NEW PLAYLIST!

One from the vault at the legendary Troubadour, where many of her compatriots also got their start.

5:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

9:00 p.m.      All About Blue: Various Artists

I never realized how many songs contained the  name of my favorite color until I got the idea for this playlist!

Tune in. Smoke a bone. Take the edge off. You won’t regret it.
