Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got some great programming today, including one playlist that hasn’t been heard since Fat Tuesday!
Here is your musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Cal Expo Amphitheater, Sacramento, June 12, 1986 NEW!
Perhaps a bit of pre-Wilburys foreshadowing here. Any time you get two guys like this on stage together, the result can only be musical nirvana. This show is from the second leg of the True Confessions Tour.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison
This was, without a doubt, a brilliant effort by Harrison, and it deserved all the critical accolades it received. You can learn more about this album by clicking on its image in the right sidebar.
7:00 p.m. Down In N’Awlins: Various Artists
This is one sweet playlist that hasn’t been heard since Fat Tuesday back in February. Music is from BeauSoleil, Clifton Chenier, Dr. John, The Neville Brothers, Tony Joe White, Fats Domino, Lucinda Williams, and many others. We hope you enjoy it.
I guess I should stop saying “join us.” There’s nothing to actually join. Tune us in would be a better phrase. No credit card or personal information required any day. No commercials. No political talk. Just music.
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 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, Music Lovers! Welcome to Saturday! Our musical landscape is very agreeable today. Great programming and a lot of open stream.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Homegrown by Neil Young
Today is the final airing of this long-awaited (and I mean, long-awaited) album. On Sunday we will have a new album posted on the blog.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at Fenway Park, August 30, 2014
From The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye Tour. The 2014 Fenway Park, Boston, show is considered one of the very best on this tour.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at The Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, Oregon, June 12, 1980. NEW!
Known as the famous Mount Saint Helens show, it took place just two weeks after the devastating first major eruptions of the Mount Saint Helens volcano. The volcano actually erupted for the second time during the Dead’s performance of Fire On The Mountain, appropriately raining ash down on the crowd.
You can read Bill Walton’s account right here. If you don’t know Bill Walton, you should look him up.
Tune us in. We don’t know any other way to say it at this point: You have no idea what you are missing. For fucking free.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Another day in retail paradise for me, and another in musical paradise for you!
Here’s your Friday line-up:
11:00 a.m. James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Royal Albert Hall, October 28, 1970
They were a thing then. And they were great together, at least musically.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Horla FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of this week’s episode of The Inner Sanctum is upon us once again. On Monday, there will be a brand new episode.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo NEW!
We talk about Lennon-McCartney, John-Taupin, and it’s time we include Petty-Campbell on that list. More than just best friends. More than just great guitar players in a great fucking band. They were also wrote some great songs together.
Tune us in, chickens. It’ll be the best thing you do all week.
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.
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.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to Sunday Funday, and it’s a good one today. We have Mr. Petty and his band, Little Feat, and Tom Rush on the schedule.
Here’s today’s Sunday Funday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers NEW!
The Heartbreakers’ blues album is on tap this week. We chose this because Mojo was released ten years ago on June 15. The album was their 12th studio album, it was Petty’s first in eight years with the band, and the first with Ron Blair back full-time as bassist after the death of the beloved Howie Epstein. (Blair was one of the original founding members of the Heartbreakers; Howie Epstein took over when Blair left.) The album was recorded in Tom Petty’s studio, The Clubhouse and was largely recorded live in the studio without overdubs. This album offers 15 really great songs by a really great band.
2:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Theater, London, August 2, 1977 NEW!
Little Feat is like Jello. There’s always room for Little Feat, one of the most amazing, fun, and enjoyable bands on the planet. I’m talking here about the original Little Feat with Lowell George mostly, although the post-George bands were respectable. I saw these guys a few times in my life, but the best show I ever saw was at the Harvard Square Theater, yet another lost venue, with Jerry Jeff Walker opening.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush
Tom Rush’s contribution to music cannot be overstated and sometimes people forget him. His recording of Joni Mitchell’s music helped to briing her to the forefront. He was just not interested in star power. I saw this guy on February 8 of this year and he was amazing. He’s 79 years young and still on the road. A real troubadour.
Hey, once again, Europe and Asia has you all beat. They are all over this station. Where the fuck are you? Pull up a tab and turn us on. We’re free. It’ll improve your social media experience.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are off to a very early start this morning with The Inner Sanctum. Deb’s Stream is brandy new today and is called, “What’s In A Name?”
Here’s today’s line-up:
9:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Amazing Death of Mrs. Putnam FINAL AIRING!
This will be the final airing of this episode of The Inner Sanctum. We move on to a new story on Monday.
12:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name? NEW!
A collection of great rock n’ roll, country and blues songs with a name in the title. Like, Jolene, Mrs. Robinson, Carol, Maybelline, Casey Jones, Eleanor Rigby, Mary Jane’s Last Dance…you get the picture.
6:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012
There’s a reason why these guys share #BecomeUngovernable House Band status with The Beatles. The boys were recorded live at the Piazza Napoleone. The set list is under the Playlist tab. It should be pretty close to the top. This is one of our favorite playlists.
Make this the day you tune us in. We’re for real.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a bright, sunny Monday here outside The Mermaid Lounge, and we have a mostly open-stream Monday…with benefits.

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!
Give us a shot. All you need to do is pull up a tab and follow this link. You do not need to do anything else. No shit.
It’s Sunday Funday, Ungovernables! We have Petty, Heartbreak, and Tapestry as Album of the Week. What could be better?
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up!
11:00 a.m. Petty Theft: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
This is one of our most popular playlists, and we haven’t played it for a while, so we thought this would be a good day. The Heartbreakers was one of the best cover bands on the planet, without question. All you need to do is listen.
3:00 p.m. Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists NEW!
We have all been down this road, haven’t we? Some of us more than others, but we’ll save my obvious bad choices for another venue. Heartbreak is clearly a prime source of some great music. Our new playlist proves that.
The track list is already up inder the Playlist tab. Please scroll to the bottom.
7:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King NEW!
I literally wore this vinyl out. Then I had it on vinyl and 8-track. Then cassette. Then CD. Yeah. I’m fucking old. But this masterpiece never gets old. By the way, Carole King is one of the greatest songwriters ever.
Make this the day you tune us in. You will not regret it.
