Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are here on #SurfMusic Debut Day, kicking off at noon (Eastern). Later, we have a new Live Dead. Is Barton Hall their best concert ever?
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Instrumental Surf Anthology, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
Surf Music was a pretty big thing during the sixties, peaking in popularity between 1962 and 1964. It originally began as instrumental music, with Dick Dale being the most iconic of the instrumental genre. Then the Beach Boys came along and brought the vocal genre to the mix. Here we start off with about an hour of the instrumental genre.
5:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy
The final airing of our Album of the Week (sadly). Tomorrow when you rush to the blog, there’ll be a new album!
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Barton Hall, Cornell University NEW!
Is this the absolute best live performance ever turned in by The Grateful Dead? There are many Deadheads who believe it is. See for yourself.
Tune us in, people. Time’s a wastin’
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is our fifth day of bright sunshine this week! What the hell is going on? I’ll tell you what. Great music going on here.

3:00 p.m. Skydog: The Legend of Duane Allman NEW!
Duane Allman was the leader of the greatest Southern rock band on the planet, but he was also a most wanted man on guitar. He played guitar for many, including Boz Scaggs, Laura Nyro, Derek & The Dominos, Clarence Carter, Wilson Pickett, and many others.
7:00 p.m. Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino: Various Artists
Here we have another legend and rock n’roll pioneer. A New Orleans native, Antoine “Fats” Domino sold 65 million records during his career. Between 1955 and 1960, Fats had eleven top ten hits. He was quiet and humble, avoiding the limelight. This, no doubt, contributed to the fact that he is often overlooked.
Tune us in. You’ll hear stuff you aren’t going to hear anywhere else. I promise.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a special Tuesday Bluesday treat today, nearly four hours of highlights from Eric Clapton and his friends at the Crossroads Guitar Festivals.

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?
