Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s the musical landscape as we retreat into The Sixties for the day. I’m happy to make the trip!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane NEW!
The band that pioneered psychedelic rock and cemented the San Francisco Sound back in the day deserves its place in the spotlight on a Sixties Sunday. Jefferson Airplane was also the first band of its genre to achieve commercial success.
3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists NEW!
The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan, The Dead, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, The Byrds, The Yardbirds, Cream, Vanilla Fudge…and all the rest of the bands that launched an incredible generation of music.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Today’s the day.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a most excellent Saturday line-up, including two live shows — one from the Grateful Dead and one from Bob Marley & The Wailers.
Here’s your Saturday line-up!
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King
The final airing of Carole King’s masterpiece. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new Album of the Week when you wake up!
5:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at the Beacon Theater, May 1, 1976
The Wailers were initially formed when self-taught musician Hubert Winston McIntosh (Peter Tosh) met the singers Neville Livingston (Bunny Wailer), and Robert Nesta Marley (Bob Marley) in 1963. The Beacon Theater show in 1976 was part of the Rastaman Vibration Tour.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at the Oakland Auditorium Arena, December 31, 1979 NEW!
The Grateful Dead ring in 1980 live from the Oakland Auditorium Arena!
You really should tune us in. We’re outside the system. We’re free. No commercials, political or otherwise. Just great fucking music.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have a brand new Album of the Week, and it’s our Sixties Rotation Sunday!
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?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back on the programming track today as we move toward our N’Awlins Mardi Gras Extravaganza.
Here’s Tuesday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. ACID: The Lost Cream Tapes (1967)
2:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers: Live at the Beacon Theater (1976)
The Beacon is one great venue; the place to be. Smaller and more intimate. Bands would play as many nights there as it took to satisfy the customer demand rather than play in an arena.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
9:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Eat A Peach by The Allman Brothers Band
