The Inner Sanctum and The Byrds Live at Royal Albert Hall. In Between, It’s Wide Open Stream, Friday, June 26, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light programming day as we add new music and playlists. Today’s feature comes from The Byrds!

the byrds-2

Here’s your line-up for today:

11:00 a.m.   The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship    FINAL AIRING!

We bid farewell to The Death Ship today, and will have a brand new episode on Monday!

7:00 p.m.  The Byrds Live at Royal Albert Hall, London, May 13, 1971   NEW!

The Byrds were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1964. The Byrds’ line-up changed many times over the years, but Roger McGuinn was the one constant presence in the  band. McGuinn was responsible for the band’s signature sound, courtesy of his 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. The sound was adopted and refined by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers years later. In fact, Petty was photographed with his beloved 12-string Rickenbacker on the cover of Damn The Torpedos.

It’s Friday and the weekend’s coming. There’s no better time to tune us in!

Traveling-Wilburys-Crop-1480x780

6:00 p.m.   Wilbury Wednesday! In The Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys  NEW & EXPANDED!

Not only do we have every song made by the Wilburys here, but we recently found some bootleg outtakes from Volume 1. Seven songs to be exact. This is the greatest supergroup on the planet. You’re going to want to tune in. 

The set list will be up under the Playlist tab. Scroll to the bottom!

10:00 p.m.   The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship

A late-night layover as The Death Ship pulls into port with its cargo of Buddha only knows what. Probably crates full of Coronavirus. Who’s steering that thing?

Bad jokes are my specialty. But the music’s great and they don’t allow me on the air, do don’t worry about the jokes.

Oh, Baby, It’s a Mudcrutch Monday (and it’s rare), Emmylou Harris Helps Out The Desert Rose Band, and The Death Ship Pulls Into Port, Monday, June 22, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! I don’t know where music fits into your life, but I know where it fits into mine. And there are far worse ways to start the week.

Emmylou Harris-Desert Rose Chris Hillman small

Here’s your Monday musical landscape:

12:00 p.m.   Emmylou Harris With The Desert Rose Band

The Desert Rose Band was formed in 1985 by Chris Hillman (former member of The Byrds and co-founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons), John Jorgenson, and Herb Pederson (who has played with Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, John Fogerty, Stephen Stills and many others). Add Emmylou Harris to that mix, and you’ve got a musical bonfire.

4:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Monday! Mudcrutch Live at the Fonda Theater, Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2016 (Fan Recorded)   NEW!

This is a rarity in every sense of the word. Some days, things just fall in your lap, and that’s what happened here. I hit the veritable motherlode, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. It is a treat to hear Tom Petty and Mudcrutch live in concert, just as it’s a rush to hear Tom Petty with the Heartbreakers on stage. You can’t touch this shit.

The set list for this show will be up and running in the Playlist tab shortly. Just scroll to the bottom!

8:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship   NEW!

Get your spooky on, people, because The Death Ship just pulled into a port near you.

Wherever you’re at, you need to be here with us on #BecomeUngovernable Radio because we’re all about being outside the system. Tune us in simply by clicking the link below. Yes, fucking Virginia, it’s as simple as that.

Here’s your Monday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Mudcrutch Madness Monday!

All the Mudcrutch you crave. The band that left Gainesville for L.A., then disbanded and morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Fast-forward to 2008: Petty brings them back together. Thankfully. The man with the musical midas touch.

6:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Study For Murder   NEW!

It’s downright creepy. Here’s this week’s airing of The Inner Sanctum. It will air two more times this week!

Part 3 of Our Beatles Special, the Music of Irma Thomas, and the Final Airing of “Island of Death,” on Friday, June 5, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! The music never stops here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got some great stuff for you today.

Beatles-Wallpaper-the-beatles-16168642-1044-748

Here’s your Friday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   The Beatles: The Endgame    NEW!

By the this time, the Beatles were barely getting along and, in some cases, were openly warring with each other. In spite of all that, the music remained amazing: The White Album, Abbey Road, Yellow Submarine, and Let It Be are covered here. Other bands from this generation are still recording, but none have had the musical and cultural impact of The Fab Four. We love them here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

All of the playlists for this series have been added to the Playlist section of the blog. Just scroll to the bottom.

5:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Irma Thomas

Irma Thomas was a contemporary of Aretha Franklin and Etta James, but — for some unknown reason — never reached their commercial success. Yet Irma Thomas remains an important cog in the R & B wheel, and is recognized as The Soul Queen of New Orleans.

9:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: Island of Death

This is the final airing of this weeks’ episode of The Inner Sanctum. On Monday, there will be a new episode released.

Just click the link below and a new tab will open. A world of musical amazement will open before you. No personal information or credit card required. No commercials. No politicians and no bullshit.

Janis Live at The Fillmore, Our Instrumental Surf Anthology, and The Inner Sanctum Returns, Friday, May 28, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have live Janis, and a replay of our introductory instrumental surf anthology before our new surf playlist on Saturday.

janis-joplin

Here’s your Friday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Janis Joplin: Live at The Fillmore East (1969)    NEW!

Janis was…Janis. She had a powerful voice, and a powerful stage presence. Although her career was tragically short, she was one of the most influential singer-songwriters of her generation. She has also achieved legend status in subsequent generations. There’s a reason for that when it happens.

5:00 p.m.    Instrumental Surf Anthology, Volume 1: Various Artists

We replay our first surf playlist from last weekend to get the juices flowing. On Saturday, you are introduced to the Blue Stingrays! Who are those guys? You’ll have to check the blog to find out!

8:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: Hunter From Beyond

This is our final airing of this week’s episode. There’ll be a new episode on Monday!

Tune us in. You don’t need a device. All you need is a new tab on your browser or a phone. There’s nothing to fill out. No credit card required. Just free music. (We do this because we can.)

8:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Hunter From Beyond
