We’re Paying Homage to Rhythm & Blues Today, Friday, April 24, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! On this day in 1954 (I was a little over 2 months old at the time), the Billboard magazine headline read:

“Teenagers Demand Music With a Beat — Spur Rhythm & Blues”

Throughout the sixties, R & B became the inspiration for many, many of the bands we feature here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, including both The Beatles and The Stones.

6:00 p.m.    Sweet Soul Music 1965: Various Artists

Tune us in and pay homage to those who helped start this thing.

“Wildflowers” Debuts, The Soul Queens Return & Eric Clapton Hangs With His Friends, on Sunday, April 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, we have some great new stuff for you on this day, including the debut of Tom Petty’s solo gem, Wildflowers, as our Album of the Week.

The Soul Queens, Vol. 1

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

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

Wildflowers was the second solo studio album by Tom Petty, and it was released on November 1, 1994. In spite of Petty’s desire to break free of the constraints of the band, he used most of his compadres as session musicians. The album resulted in four single releases, the most successful of which was You Don’t Know How It Feels. The other three were It’s Good To Be King (my all-time favorite Petty song), You Wreck Me, and A Higher Place. Read more about the album and the contributors here

4:00 p.m.   The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists

Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Mary Wells, Carla Thomas, Little Eva, and more.

8:00 p.m.   Eric Clapton & Friends Live!  NEW!

Eric Clapton has a few friends over, and they ain’t social distancing. He is joined by Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Joe Cocker for a great repertoire of songs. Enjoy!

It’s Sunday. A day of rest. Take advantage and tune us in.
