Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy Team Up for Our New Album of The Week, and It’s a Sixties Sunday on May 17, 2020!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have a brand new Album of the Week, and it’s our Sixties Rotation Sunday!

Adieu False Heart-Linda Ronstadt-Ann Savoy

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

10:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy   NEW!

Nobody can ever accuse Linda Ronstadt of resting on her laurels. She was always in pursuit of the next musical adventure. The absolute best thing about Ronstadt — at least for her true fans — was that she refused to have her music defined by anybody. To put it bluntly, she sang because she loved singing.

This album was released on July 25, 2006. It would be Ronstadt’s last studio album before her retirement in 2011, and her revelation about having Parkinson’s Disease. Her musical partner is the amazing Ann Savoy, a Cajun music singer with a band called The Magolia Sisters. Ronstadt is technically a soprano; Savoy an alto. They had made duets before for a Cajun tribute album. Here, they unite as The Zozo Sisters, and the result is stunning.

Absolute Fact: Linda Ronstadt’s ultimate desire was to be part of an all-girl band. Those were the kinds of projects she sought out for herself.

2:00 p.m.    The Sixties on Sunday!

We’re back with five hours of musical programming that defined a generation. From The Beatles, to The Kinks, to Barry McGuire, Lulu, Del Shannon, and Bob Dylan. It’s all here!

So, it’s Sunday. A day of rest. What are you going to do about that?

Here’s your Saturday line-up!

12:00 p.m.   Album of The Week: The Band by The Band

The final airing of this masterpiece will be at noon today. Tomorrow, when you wake up and run to the blog, you’ll see a brand new Album of The Week.

5:00 p.m.    The Beatles: The Transformative Years   NEW!

This is the most amazing period in The Beatles’ musical journey. Beginning with Rubber Soul and Revolver, they seemed to just explode into a level of creativity that had never happened before, and has yet to be equalled by any band. 

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead! The Grateful Dead: Live at The San Francisco Civic Auditorium, December 28. 1983   NEW!

Another fine live entry by the ultimate jam band. 

We’ve got a lot of listeners, but not a lot from the U.S. by comparison. What’s with that, people? No time for music?

It’a The Sixties On Sunday & Our New Album of the Week (Who’s Next), March 15, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Yes, it’s our monthly Sixties on Sunday play day, and we introduce our brand new Album of the Week!

The Sixties Rotation

Here’s your programming, and don’t be fooled by the light programming! Tune us in!

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Who’s Next, by The Who   NEW!

Who’s Next was the fifth studio album released by The Who. It was born from what was intended to be a follow-up multi-media opera to Tommy called Lifehouse written by Pete Townshend. In fact, the only song not originally from Lifehouse was My Wife, written by John Entwhistle.

Regardless of how it came about, Who’s Next is a great album with a bunch of really great songs. Not every album has to be a ‘concept’ album to be relevant. 

2:00 p.m.      The Sixties on Sunday: The Playlist

From the British Invasion to Woodstock and beyond. The best music on the planet. Now a monthly staple on #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Fuck this government.

New Month & New Music: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues, Our New Album of The Week, & The Soul Queens, Vol. 1 on Sunday, March 1, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We begin a new month, and that means some new music. It’s also the beginning of a new week, which brings a new Album of the Week!

The Soul Queens, Vol. 1

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.      Album of the Week: The Doors by The Doors

The debut album by The Doors was recorded in 1966 and released on January 4, 1967. It is viewed as central to the progression of psychedelic rock, has sold 20 million copies, and has a place in the Grammy Hall of Fame, as does The Doors’ debut hit, Light My Fire.

2:00 p.m.       Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues

Tom Petty wanted to make Mojo a blues album because he envisioned he and his bandmates as old men, sitting around together, playing and singing the blues. The Heartbreakers actually recorded a lot of blues tunes over their career. We decided to compile them for you.

8:00 p.m.       The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists

Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Ann Peebles, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, The Ronettes, The Shirelles, and many more!

Listen, we’re free. And we’re playing the best shit around. Tune us in.

Donovan in the Spotlight, Jefferson Airplane Live in Copenhagen, Amy Winehouse Live in London & Our Album of the Week, Thursday, February 13, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great Thursday program today, including new “live” music from Jefferson Airplane!

Jefferson Airplane

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Donovan

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Eat A Peach by The Allman Brothers Band

5:00 p.m.       The Jefferson Airplane: Live in Copenhagen, Denmark 8-28-68

The Jefferson Airplane was undoubtedly a force during the psychedelic music era. Somebody To Love, their most popular song by far, was released during the Summer of Love (1967), and catapulted them into the pop charts. The rest, as they say, is history.

9:00 p.m.       Amy Winehouse: Live at The Porchester Hall, London (2007)

Don’t forget to tune us in, people. We’re free. ALWAYS.
