Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a full slate today, including Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash’s Nashville Skyline sessions!
Here’s your mid-week lineup!
12:00 p.m. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash, Nashville 1969 NEW!
During 1969’s Nashville Skyline sessions, Bob Dylan teamed up with Johnny Cash to record a dozen songs, only one of which made it to the album. These informal recordings are relaxed and loose, and are easy on the ears…a meeting of two giants. The back-up musicians include Carl Perkins on guitar.
3:00 p.m. Dusty in London: The Lost British Recordings
Dusty Springfield truly epitomized the term “blue-eyed soul,” and her career spanned five decades.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young
Speaking of legendary artists, Neil Young has been a part of our musical DNA since the sixties as well, as a solo artist and with the Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
9:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning
The second episode of the series!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there. My daughter always says “Mother’s only half a word in our house.” She wasn’t kidding either.
Here’s your Mother’s Day lineup!
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
Yes, with and without the Heartbreakers. Mostly with, though. Listen, their B-sides are better than most bands’ A-sides. And that’s no lie, as you will see if you tune in.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Band. By The Band. NEW!
The band that began as Bob Dylan’s back-up band went on to become one of the most influential bands of its generation, and delivered the goods every time out. This effort came after Music From Big Pink, another great musical achievement. But this one saw Robbie Robertson take charge, and the The Band took a huge leap forward.
The Band, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Beatles, remains one of #BecomeUngovernable’s favorite house bands.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Little Richard NEW!
Richard Wayne Penniman, also known as Little Richard, was a rock n’ roll pioneer who broke down many barriers in his lifetime. He influenced many who came after him, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whose early efforts were steeped in rhythm & blues. He passed away yesterday at the age of 87, and today we pay tribute to his greatness.
It’s Mother’s Day. Tune us in. You won’t regret it.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to yet another Monday, but we won’t call it a Funday unless you’re tuning us in for some great music!
Here’s your Monday line-up:
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite bands. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite and, when I do, it could change at any time!
4:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Live at the Fonda Theater, Hollywood NEW!
Maybe Van Morrison started a trend when he performed Astral Weeks live at The Hollywood Bowl in 2009 because, in May 2015, at the intimate Fonda Theater the Rolling Stones performed the entire Sticky Fingers album live in concert for the first — and so far — only time in their career.
7:00 p.m. Bob Dylan: Live at Budokan 1979
One of my favorite Dylan live shows here. Enjoy.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. (I think someone famous said that.)
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a little Cajun-Zydeco to go along with your Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, and Richie Havens today!
Here’s your mid-week line-up!
12:00 p.m. BeauSoleil Live in Louisiana!
Sometimes we forget how good this music really is. BeauSoleil reminds us.
4:00 p.m. Richie Havens Sings The Beatles & Dylan NEW!
I had forgotten this even existed until I was hunting around for something else. Richie Havens got on the map by being the opening act at the original Woodstock. The only real Woodstock.
7:00 p.m. Dylan & The Dead
A classic from that long, strange road trip they took together in 1978.
Tune us in. We’ve made it half way through already.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We lost another troubadour this week. John Prine passed away, leaving yet another hole in the singer/songwriter category. We pay him respects.
John Prine and Bonnie Raitt singing the wondrous Angel From Montgomery.
Here’s your Friday line-up:
1:00 p.m. Bob Dylan’s Murder Most Foul
Dylan’s first new release in 8 years is his perspective on the assassination of John F. Kennedy or, as I refer to it, the beginning of our end. This is the first Dylan song to top the Billboard charts in his career (not that he ever gave a shit about that), a testament to both of their legacies.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Prine NEW!
Singer-Songwriters aren’t easy to come by, and we lost one of the most revered of his generation this week. John Prine’s Angel From Montgomery remains Bonnie Raitt’s defining tune to this day.
7:00 p.m. That Sweet Soul Sound: Various Artists
The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Ann Peebles, Curtis Mayfield, Roberta Flack, The Staple Singers, and many more.
Tune us in. And did I mention that this weekend we have Sixties Sunday?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are officially at hump day. That would make it Wednesday. We’ve got some great stuff today, including the debut of the Foo Fighters.
Here’s your midweek line-up:
1:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young
Neil remains…Neil. Long may he run.
5:00 p.m. Maria Muldaur Sings the Love Songs of Bob Dylan
You heard us right. The love songs. The master storyteller was also a writer of great love songs.
8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of the Foo Fighters NEW!
The Foo Fighters make their #BecomeUngovernable Radio debut today. The band was founded in 1994 by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the suicide of Kurt Cobain.
Tune us in. You don’t know what you’re missing…until you do.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some great programming today, including Bob Dylan’s first new release in eight years. By the way, the fun begins early today!
Here’s your line-up:
9:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Souvenirs by Dan Fogelberg.
Our final airing. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, there’ll be a new Album of the Week posted on the blog.
1:00 p.m. Bob Dylan’s Ode to JFK: Murder Most Foul NEW!
A surprise release from Dylan that brings the JFK assassination back home again. We will play this release several times over the next week.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Bill Withers NEW!
The guy who never cared about being a star certainly left us a great body of work. We pay tribute to Withers today. He passed away on March 30th.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead, Europe ’72: Copenhagen, April 17, 1972 NEW!
This is the second Copenhagen show of the tour; not a repeat of our earlier broadcast. And we all know that no two Dead shows are ever the same.
Hey, we’re stuck at home. You should tune us in. Nothing required but a computer and a tab on your browser.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to another Friday above the dirt. We have some great programming, and 22,000+ open stream songs…and those are plenty of reasons to listen in.
Bob Dylan with some of his friends, like Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, and Tom Petty of The Heartbreakers.
Here’s today’s line-up:
1:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Play All Night: Live at The Beacon
The quintessential Southern Rock band; the grandaddys of the genre. And always a class act. The road goes on forever.
6:00 p.m. Bob Dylan & Friends: The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration NEW!
Speaking of legends, we’ve got plenty of them participating in this celebration of everything Bob Dylan has contributed to the greatest music generation ever. Revelers include Tom Petty, Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Wonder, John Mellencamp, and Roger McGuinn.

8:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Court & Spark by Joni Mitchell
Undoubtedly one of those albums that make people smile when it’s mentioned. To learn more about Court & Spark, click on the image in the Album of the Week box in the right sidebar.
Tune us in, people. We’ve got the greatest music evah, and we’re still digging deep and uploading daily! 23,569 songs and counting!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Less programming means more open stream, and that’s what we have today. Along with some new live Dylan.
Here’s Friday’s line-up:
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival
The Boys on the Bayou were actually from Berkeley. But they were a force.
7:00 p.m. The Bootleg Series: Bob Dylan Live at the Royal Albert Hall (1966) NEW!
As time goes by, I discover more and more stuff out there. We have many. This is but one, and we hope you enjoy.
