Programming for Monday, July 22, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It is yet another Monday, and we’re off to a full slate of special programming on this fine day!

10:00 a.m.  George Harrison & Friends: The Concert for Bangladesh

“Cause” concerts are old hat now, but when George Harrison and quite a few of his friends took the stage on December 20, 1971, it was a first. This is where it all began.

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: America, The Farewell Tour

Chris Hedges talks about his most recent book, how and why we came to be in this sorry state, and the eventual fall of Empire. I saw this tour when his book was first published. It is quite sobering.

Bob Dylan didn’t just write protest songs, and Maria Muldaur is one of that great class of women who graced the airwaves during the 70s along with Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, they frequently visited each other’s albums!

7:00 p.m.   Chris Hedges and Medea Benjamin of Code Pink Talk Iran

Chris Hedges talks to Medea Benjamin about the very real and dangerous potential for war with Iran.

10:00 p.m.  Dylan & The Dead

Programming for Sunday, July 21, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we on this fine morning? Here is your playlist for today. Giving it a break today: More music, less chatter. Hey, it’s Sunday! and it’s a Dylan kind of day.

10:00 a.m.  Dylan and The Dead

Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead collaborate on some Dylan tunes both on vinyl and on the road. The team took to the road in 1987, and the album was released on February 6, 1986 by Columbia Records.

1:00 p.m.   Across the Borderline: Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Bob Dylan and Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers decided to team up after Dylan complained that they never got anybody “cool” to open with. The rest is musical history, as two of the world’s greatest songwriters also became the best of friends, winding up in The Traveling Wilburys together (their playlist makes its debut on this station next week).

Across the Borderline is a record of Dylan and Petty live in Sydney Australia. There’s a great interview at the beginning of the playlist talking about how this collaboration all came about. It’s fascinating!

4:00 p.m.   Martin Luther King: Why I Oppose the Viet Nam War

The mainstreamers always invokes “I Have a Dream” when someone asks about Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches, but this is one of King’s most inspirational speeches ever. If ever we need some kind of anti-war voice, it’s now.

 

Programming Note: We will be taking down the servers at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday evening for a major upgrade and the addition of new music.
