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.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Yesterday was the anniversary of the great Roy Orbison’s passing on December 6, 1988. We almost missed it entirely, but we didn’t. We give him his due today. Not only was he a great solo performer, but he was a member of The Traveling Wilburys.
Here’s your Saturday line-up!
11:00 a.m. Roy Orbison & Friends: The Original Black & White Concert

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great line-up today from top to bottom.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Album of The Week: Graceland, by Paul Simon
This was an album of epic proportions with Paul Simon stepping out to explore a whole new genre of music. Graceland won the 1987 Grammy for Album of the Year, and has sold more than 16 million copies to date.
We are presenting the expanded album here. The first 11 songs are the way the original album was recorded. There’s a break with Paul Simon talking about the making of the album, then there are several bonus tracks that were not used.
Linda Ronstadt sings some beautiful backgrounds and harmonies on Under African Skies, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo sings background on Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes.
2:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3
5:00 p.m. Warren Zevon: Live at the Capitol Theater, Los Angeles (1980)
9:00 p.m. Maria Muldaur Sings the Love Songs of Bob Dylan
It wasn’t just about protest songs. Bob Dylan had a romantic side, and Maria Muldaur explores it in her own wonderful style.
