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.
I’ve been talking about expanding the scope of this blog, and I finally found a way to kick that off! For me, this is a real ‘feel good’ musical story and I’m happy to make this my first non-programming post.
After Tom Petty passed, his childhood home was put on the market, no doubt by someone hoping to cash in. The first interest in the property came from a fan who was also a real estate developer. He announced his intention to buy the property and turn it into a “museum.”
Enter Jane Benyo Petty, Tom’s ex-wife. She stepped in and purchased the property for $175,000. While there are no immediate plans to do anything with the property except make sure it is not “disturbed,” Jane said that she felt it should be kept in the family and felt certain that Tom Petty would not want it to be turned into a museum.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we this fine morning? By the time you see this, I’ll be off to work, but there’s some great stuff coming up for you today.

5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt
I have said it once and I’ll say it again. There’s nobody that can touch the voice. There may never be anyone with this ability for a very long time. There certainly isn’t anyone out there right now, and there has never been another singer that can sing so many genres so adeptly. Sit back and listen to a master at work.
7:30 p.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session
Speaking of masters…
