Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at the Beacon, The Dead Live in Oakland, and Our Album of the Week, Saturday, June 13, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a most excellent Saturday line-up, including two live shows — one from the Grateful Dead and one from Bob Marley & The Wailers.

Bob Marley-The Beacon

Here’s your Saturday line-up!

12:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King

The final airing of Carole King’s masterpiece. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new Album of the Week when you wake up!

5:00 p.m.    Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at the Beacon Theater, May 1, 1976

The Wailers were initially formed when self-taught musician Hubert Winston McIntosh (Peter Tosh) met the singers Neville Livingston (Bunny Wailer), and Robert Nesta Marley (Bob Marley) in 1963. The Beacon Theater show in 1976 was part of the Rastaman Vibration Tour.

10:00 p.m.   Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at the Oakland Auditorium Arena, December 31, 1979  NEW!

Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan & George Harrison, and Our Album of the Week, June 11, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Back on the chain gang today (figuratively speaking), with a pretty sweet line-up.

Stevie Wonder

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King

You can learn more about this great album by clicking on the album cover on the right side of the blog!

3:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Wonder    NEW!

Blind from birth and raised in inner-city Detroit, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Wonder was an accomplished musician by the age of eight, and recorded his first song at the age of 12. Today, we give him his due.

6:00 p.m.    Bob Dylan & George Harrison Almost Went to See Elvis (1997)

It’s a mystery, folks. According to Harrison, Elvis stood them up. But according Dylan, it was the other way around.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday Once Again, and “Tapestry” Returns, Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have another light programming day as we prepare for some new programs, and add new music.

The Jeff Beck Group

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!

12:00 p.m.   Tuesday Bluesday: The Jeff Beck Group Live at The Palace Theater, Waterbury, CT

The “core” of the Jeff Beck Group was guitarist Jeff Beck, vocalist Rod Stewart (yes, that Rod Stewart), and rhythm guitarist Ronnie Wood, with the bassists and drummers changing pretty frequently. Pictured with the three core members is bassist Jet Harris.

5:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King

The monster 1971 release is back for another airing.

Tune us in, people. We’re free. And we’re free of commercials.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing Just About Everyone, We Have Nothing But Heartbreak, and “Tapestry” Gets Its Turn, Sunday, June 7, 2020

It’s Sunday Funday, Ungovernables! We have Petty, Heartbreak, and Tapestry as Album of the Week. What could be better?

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Petty Theft: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 

This is one of our most popular playlists, and we haven’t played it for a while, so we thought this would be a good day. The Heartbreakers was one of the best cover bands on the planet, without question. All you need to do is listen.

3:00 p.m.    Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists   NEW!

We have all been down this road, haven’t we? Some of us more than others, but we’ll save my obvious bad choices for another venue. Heartbreak is clearly a prime source of some great music. Our new playlist proves that. 

The track list is already up inder the Playlist tab. Please scroll to the bottom.

7:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Tapestry by Carole King   NEW!

I literally wore this vinyl out. Then I had it on vinyl and 8-track. Then cassette. Then CD. Yeah. I’m fucking old. But this masterpiece never gets old. By the way, Carole King is one of the greatest songwriters ever.

Make this the day you tune us in. You will not regret it.

We’re Back Tomorrow With ‘Ladies Only’

Good Morning, Ungovernables! One more day of open stream while we continue to upload some new files and eliminate others. We’re back with new programming on Friday when it will be Ladies Only day!

photovisi-Ladies Only

Don’t get your underwear in a twist, gentlemen. You dominate the airwaves like everything else. Even Sirius XM hasn’t put together a woman’s station yet, and there are plenty of female singers out there, and plenty whose talent has paved the way for today’s crop of talentless waifs who all sound the same. In fact, if there were a woman’s station today, I am convinced it would not include these pioneers.

Enjoy today’s open stream at http://www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio
