That Sweet Soul Sound, Warren Zevon ‘Live’ at the Capitol, and Neil Young Returns With ‘Homegrown’ on Thursday, July 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back with some programming today, including some great sixties soul (absolutely unbeatable) and one of the best, Warren Zevon.

Warren-Zevon-Flinch-Cover-Crop

Here’s your line-up for Thursday:

11:00 a.m.   That Sweet Soul Sound: Various Artists

Great sixties soul with Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Mary Wells, Bill Withers, The Shirelles, Roberta Flack, Fats Domino, Curtis Mayfield, and many others.

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.

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?

The Beatles’ Transformative Years, The Final Airing of “The Band,” and A Brand New ‘Live Dead’ on Saturday, May 16, 2020

The Beatles Avedon Poster_upscale

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?

We Have a New ‘Inner Sanctum’ Episode, Led Zeppelin in the Spotlight, and Mudcrutch Monday, on May 11, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back at another Monday, and we have some great music and mayhem on tap.

led-zeppelin-mn-1130_af19affb5326b337be3b41f0b977fe4a.fit-760w

Here’s your Monday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning

We move on to Episode 2 of our old time radio show, The Inner Sanctum.

2:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Monday!

Today in the Spotlight, we have Mudcrutch. The band that would morph into the force that’s known as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. In reality, Mudcrutch was a force unto itself, returning under Petty in 2008 to make some brilliant music. Failing to see this band during it’s small-venue tour in 2016 is one of the great regrets of my musical life.

6:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Led Zeppelin   NEW!

We’re spending some quality time with the original headbangers tonight. Formed in London in 1968, they celebrated their 50th year in service to the musical masses in 2018. 

Where you at? Tune us in. We’re free and always will be.

A Rare Hendrix “Live” Show, Badfinger in Kansas City, and “Wildflowers” is Back, Thursday, April 23, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We had a day off, and we’re back full speed today with some rare Hendrix, in fact

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

1:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers

You can learn more about this outstanding solo Tom Petty album by clicking the image in the sidebar on this blog!

4:00 p.m.   Jimi Hendrix Live at the Cafe Au-Go-Go, March 17, 1968   NEW!

When I say getting live Hendrix is a rarity, it’s because his professional career lasted only four years before his premature death at the age of 27. In spite of that, he is regarded as one of the most influential musicians in rock music history.

7:00 p.m.   Badfinger Live at the Cowtown Auditorium, Kansas City (1972)

The Badfinger story is indeed a tragic one, but this band was the only legitimate star signing for Apple Records, and they left us a great body of music to appreciate.

Tune us in! We’re free. Totally. No personal information required either.

12:00 p.m.  The Beatles: The Early Years   NEW!

Somebody argued with me over whether or not the Beatles were the best rock n’ roll band ever. I never said they were. I said they were the best damned band ever. They were never limited by genre. They changed everything. In this playlist, we focus on their early years. 

4:00 p.m.    It’s Mudcrutch Monday!

Yes, it’s Mudcrutch Monday, and we’re airing our Mudcrutch Madness playlist for you.
