We’re Back With Ladies’ Only Day!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve been streaming for days now trying to fix a glitch we have without interrupting service. We may have lost that battle. Not quite sure yet. But for today, we’re going to enjoy some tunes from the those we consider the pioneers and powerhouses of women in music.

 

RONSTADTRAITT2

10:00 a.m.   The All-Girl Revue, File 1: Various Artists

3:00 p.m.     The All-Girl Revue Too (also known as File 2): Various Artists

Both of these playlists offer a great line-up of women musicians across a broad range of styles.

8:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt

This month, we pay respect to one of the most fearless artists of her generation with the release of the documentary, The Sound of My Voice. If she were a man, she never would have been made to wait for her induction into the Rock n’Roll Hall of Fame until 2012.

11:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro

Laura Nyro is another of those under appreciated performers. Her songwriting is legendary. Many have hit the big time with her songs, like The Fifth Dimension. Sometimes Nyro’s singing is overlooked, and that is a shame. We aim to correct that here.

Will it be a Ladies Only Weekend? It could be. I’m feelin’ it right now. Stick around and find out!

Programming for Friday, August 23, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Friday, and a special Friday, at that: It’s All-Girl Friday here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. When I decided to do this, one of my intentions was to right the wrongs done to many women pioneers in rock music who still can’t get air time even after all these years in the business.

ronstadt-raitt-mudaur

I’m talking about women like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, and others who should hold a place of prominence on what are known as Classic Rock stations (and that includes Sirius). We want to right that ship here. This is their day.

 

10:00 a.m.   Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks, August 30, 1983

The irrepressible Joni Mitchell turns in a fine performance here.

1:00 p.m.    Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train

In a wide-ranging discussion held at the Massachusetts School of Law, Dean Lawrence R. Velvel interviews American Historian Howard Zinn about a variety of topics, including Zinn’s take on what true Patriotism is, his view on terrorism, and what they don’t want to hear about the myth of American Exceptionalism.

3:00 p.m.    The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1

7:00 p.m.    The All-Girl Revue, Volume 2

Programming for Saturday, August 3, 2019

Happy Saturday, Ungovernables! And so the weekend begins (unless you’re in retail, like I am where the shopping never stops). Here is your programming for today!

Bobby

10:00 a.m.   The All-Girl Revue: Various Artists

One of the big goals of this station is to elevate the pioneer women of rock. People like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Laura Nyro, and others whose playtime on rock radio over the years has been stifled by focus on the men. It’s as simple as that. Linda Ronstadt achieved the popularity of a Mick Jagger as a female in music at a time when music was very anti-female, and finally — five decades later — her story will be told. She is but one of the featured artists on this great playlist.

By the way, Volume 2 of this playlist will debut next week. 

1:00 p.m.    Robert F. Kennedy’s ’68 Election Townhall Speech

I adore nobody. I fully respect several, however, and this man is one of them. Would we have had a different nation? In my heart of hearts, I believe yes. Perfect? Utopia? I hate to tell you this, but that does not exist anywhere. But I will tell you something else as well. Had John and Bobby Kennedy lived out their normal lives, we would not be here. We would not be in utopia. We would have our problems and issues. But we would not be here. And I also believe this was not coincidence.

4:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Olympic (The Last DJ Tour)

I say it all the time: It does not get any better on the road than this. If you haven’t experienced this band live, you haven’t experienced this band. This is, without a doubt, one of the tightest bands ever in the history of music. We’ve got a ton of stuff like this and, apparently, Mr. Petty left behind enough unfinished business to keep us going for a very long time.

7:00 p.m.   Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 1

Deb Della Piana takes on the ghost of Christopher Columbus, not one of the good guys no matter what they want you to believe. This will be the final airing of this episode before the first airing of Episode 2.

 

 

 

Programming for Thursday, August 1, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! And so, another month begins, and we’re off to a great start with this programming. We told you we were committed to featuring the women of rock, and we’ve got a legend today!

BonnieRaittFMG-15

10:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young

All hail Neil Young! Another of those classic singer-songwriters who never sold himself out for a buck.

1:00 p.m.    Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Speech at the Conclusion of the  Selma to Montgomery March (March 25, 1965)

There’s not much more we can do to describe this speech. Just listen.

4:00 p.m.    Bonnie Raitt in Concert: Live at the Oakland Coliseum Arena (1989)

Like her friend, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt has been around since the days of the old Club 47 in Boston. Her vocal ability is legendary, but that isn’t where the talent ends. Bonnie Raitt is also acknowledged as one of the greatest slide guitarists of all time.

7:00 p.m.   Howard Zinn: Conversations With History (2009)

In one of Zinn’s final interviews before his death in 2010, Zinn touches on a number of subjects.
