Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are back from Limbo! Therefore, it is only fitting that we celebrate the occasion (which we hope to never have happen again) with our two house bands!
12:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Fillmore 1999
Back in ’99, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers performed at The Fillmore in San Francisco for seven consecutive sold-out nights on The High Grass Dogs Tour. By then, the band was already enmeshed in a full-on love affair with fans, and this continued to grow over the coming decades. We love Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers here in The Mermaid Lounge.
4:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart FINAL AIRING!
We not only say goodbye today to The Tell-Tale Heart but to the Inner Sanctum. We’ll take a very short break in the spooky proceedings, but will be back with another featured series soon.
7:00 p.m. The Beatles: Help!, The Movie Soundtrack NEW!
It’s not a new album, but July 20 was the 55th anniversary of the film’s official release in the UK. It was released in August of 1965 in the U.S. Today, we celebrate the release of Help! by featuring the soundtrack album. The song in the scene above (photo) is Ticket To Ride, which John Lennon called the first psychedelic song ever made. Enjoy!
Yes. We’re back. We’re still free. Outside the system. No credit card required. No personal information asked. We’re not in it for the money.
PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU HAVE SAVED THIS IN THE PAST, OUR LINK IS NEW:
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Wednesday and, as is the routine here lately, a (mostly) open stream day! Later, we get into some sweet soul music and much later, The Tell-Tale Heart.
Here’s today’s line-up:
Perpetual Open Stream
We really only offer programming for seven hours a day. The rest of our day is open stream, and we run 24/7. And when you’re circulating 23,000+ songs, the likelihood of repeating a song in a 24-hour cycle is slim and none.
6:00 p.m. Sweet Soul Music ’65: Various Artists
Features Otis Redding, Kim Weston, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Joe Tex, Lee Dorsey, The Dixie Cups, Fontella Bass, and many more!
10:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart
This is our last episode of The Inner Sanctum for this broadcast cycle of Old Time Radio. The final airing will be on Friday. Then we’ll take a short hiatus, and be back with a new series.
This is literally the perfect day for you to give us a try. WTF, America? Everyone else seems to “get it.”
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It has been a while and we were more than overdue for another Mudcrutch Madness Monday, and we salute Mick Jagger on his birthday with some live Stones!
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Mudcrutch Monday Madness!
Here we are again celebrating the band that birthed Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I say birthed rather than morphed into because Mudcrutch is a badass band all on its own. Petty brought them back into the light in 2008, and the rest is musical history, including a brilliant tour in 2016 where the definitive version of Hungry No More was recorded live at The House of Blues in Boston. We love Mr. Petty here.
Mudcrutch is Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench (all from the Heartbreakers), along with Randall Marsh and Tom Leadon.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart NEW!
Here’s our very last episode of The Inner Sanctum for this broadcast cycle. But don’t despair! We’ve got plenty more old time radio spooktaculars on the horizon. So, enjoy The Tell-Tale Heart.
7:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones Live at The Palais Royale Ballroom, Toronto, Canada on August 16, 2002 NEW!
We celebrate Mick Jagger’s birthday (yesterday) with a very unique live performance. It took place in Toronto, Canada, and was essentially a surprise performance to just 1,000 guests.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Hey, still the best advice I’ve heard. Especially if you’re fortunate enough to be off on a Monday. Tune us in. We’re free. We’re 24/7. We’re outside the system.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Friday once again. Women’s Week is coming down to the wire, but we’ve still got some great programming planned right through Sunday, so don’t go away.
Irma Thomas (shown performing in 2008) is known as the “sweet soul queen of New Orleans.”
Here’s your Friday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Irma Thomas
Irma Thomas is a contemporary of Aretha Franklin, but she never quite reached that level of commercial success. Known as The Soul Queen of New Orleans, Irma has been pleasing her audiences for many decades.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of The Skull That Walked, so get your spooky on. We’ve got a new one coming on Monday as we roll toward the end of our first season of Old Time Radio.
7:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at the Teatro Tenda, Lampugnano, Milan, Italy, May 9, 1983 NEW!
Someone once asked me why Joni Mitchell is so important. My response? “Are you fucking kidding me?” Roberta Joan Mitchell, Canadian singer-songwriter, has built a musical legend by weaving pop, rock, folk and jazz into her own amazing style. A prolific songwriter, Mitchell has written about love, abandonment, disillusionment, the environment, war and the human condition. Today we have her live from Milan, Italy.
Why not make today the day you join us in The Mermaid Lounge. I mean, seriously. What have you got to lose? We don’t cost a damned thing. Or require your information. So, there.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Don’t be fooled! Women’s Week rolls along in spite of the fact that it’s Open Stream most of the day! Valerie Carter pays us a visit later.
Here’s your Wednesday line-up!
All Day Open Stream Wednesday!
We are circulating 23,000 songs and playlists daily, totally commercial-free, no politicians, no chatter, and no bullshit.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Valerie Carter NEW!
You may not know singer-songwriter Valerie Carter like you know some of the other women we feature here, but you will. The little girl with the big voice fell under the radar, but not with her peers, who often sought her out to sing with them — including Jackson Browne, Little Feat, Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley and many others. She was also a long time member of James Taylor’s recording and touring band. Carter wrote the Judy Collins hit, Cook With Honey, and co-wrote Jackson Browne’s Love Needs a Heart. It is rumored that Steve Winwood’s song Valerie was inspired by her, as was Jackson Browne’s That Girl Could Sing.
10:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked
Get your late-night spooky on, people, as we wind down our Inner Sanctum collection.
I say this every day and I mean it: This is a great day to tune us in. No credit card, no information, no money required. We’re totally free and outside the system.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We continue on with Women’s Week here in The Mermaid Lounge. No other radio venue we know gives women a decent platform. Women aren’t afterthoughts here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked NEW SPOOKTACULAR!
The first airing of our new Inner Sanctum episode.
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris
A very nice retrospective of Emmylou’s repertoire, which is extensive and defies all the rules. That’s why we love her here in the lounge.
7:00 p.m. Amy Winehouse Live From Porchester Hall, London, March 8, 2007 NEW!
When Amy Winehouse passed in 2011, she became yet another member of the ’27 Club’ of talented musicians who have died before their time. She joins Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and many others. She is in good company, but we wish she weren’t.
Oh, well, it’s good day in hell. Who said that? You need to join us today. We are totally free. I know you don’t believe me, but you can prove it to yourselves very easily by clicking on the link below. Listening is believing.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is a spectacular line-up today starting right off the bat, as my grandmother would say. And it includes yet another amazing Ronstadt playlist.
Here’s Friday’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival
Also known as Creedence or CCR. Four guys from the Bay area who sounded like they just rumbled out of a Lousiana swamp. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are the favorite American band around these parts. Creedence runs a hot and strong second.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Melody of Death FINAL AIRING!
This is the final airing of The Melody of Death. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode available.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: Forgotten Gems, Rarities, Outtakes, Bootlegs NEW!
This is a great playlist of stuff that may never have been heard before by most radio listeners. Some may have been forgotten. Some have never existed in recorded form. Enjoy this playlist.
The songs are already up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom!
This would be a most excellent day to make #BecomeUngovernable Radio your radio station of choice. It’s free. Totally. Every day and in every way. Completely built OUTSIDE the system. I promise.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back on Monday…not our favorite day of the week. But hey, the music more than makes up for it today!
Here’s your programming for today:
11:00 a.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite 60’s R & B Stream NEW!
My newest R & B stream should get your ass in gear! Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Supremes, The Miracles, and many more!
The set list is already up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom!
4:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Melody of Death NEW!
Gypsys and violins. Both scary items when combined. Trust me on this one, and check out the new Inner Sanctum.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The J. Geils Band
Hey, Aerosmith isn’t the only game in town here in Boston. We have a bona fide blues band in our history. And we feature them tonight.
Tune us in. We don’t have a clue what America is waiting for. Everyone else gets it.
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!
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.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday in the real world, but here at The Mermaid Lounge, it’s another day in musical paradise. So, tune us in. All you need is a tab and a finger to make it happen.
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Band
This is our Happy 77th Belated Birthday tribute to the heart and soul of The Band, Robbie Robertson. We’ve got a great playlist going here from one of the most amazing musical groups in rock n’ roll history.
4:00 p.m. The Kinks Live at The Palladium, New York, December 31, 1980 NEW!
The feuding Davies brothers notwithstanding, The Kinks were a kick-ass band. We have something new here just for our Kinks fans (and I’m one of them for sure).
8:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday NEW!
What does The Man From Yesterday have to do with a gorilla? You’ll have to listen to find out.
We are totally outside the system: No joining fees. No commercials. No aimless chatter. No politicians. No bullshit. No personal information required. Just click the link below.
