Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are working in reverse today because there’s a lot of shit going on in The Mermaid Lounge today. Our music trivia will appear after this a bit later on. Sorry to upset your mojo.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul McCartney
With the Beatles, with Wings, and as a solo artist, Paul McCartney has stood the test of time. Yeah, he was the most commercial of The Beatles. Without that, there would not be the opportunity to create the other shit. Record companies don’t support people who don’t create revenue. That’s how capitalism works, like it or not.
3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & The Desert Rose Band
One of our favorites, Emmylou Harris, takes a turn with the Desert Rose Band, founded by ex-Byrd Chris Hillman. Other members include Herb Pederson, John Jorgenson, Bill Bryson, JayDee Maness, and Steve Duncan.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Booker T. & The MG’s
Ah yes, remember when instruments mattered in music? Now, according to Kanye West, Yeezy, Ye, Assclown of the Century, you can make all that shit sound with a computer and a program. Progress. Ain’t it great?
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead NEW!
A convicted man sentenced to death vows retribution from the grave. A judge and a D.A. are murdered shortly after his execution. They better call The Shadow fast because the jury foreman is next unless someone figures this shit out.
Tune us in, people. You are wasting valuable hours of ear candy. Get on it.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are on another Friday, getting ready for the weekend, and we’ve got some great music to usher in the weekend after an open stream kind of morning.
Here’s today’s line-up:
3:00 p.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live From My Father’s Place, Old Roslyn, New York, November 28, 1976 NEW!
The Flying Burrito Brothers were founded in Los Angeles in 1968 by Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman. They have undergone many personnel changes over the years, but are best remembered for their influential early work in country rock, and their debut album The Gilded Palace of Sin (1969).
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur
Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer, who was an influential part of the folk music revival of the 1960s. Sometimes the general public overlooks her incredible body of work, but her peers do not.
So, let’s get this show on the road. Are you doing to tune us in or what? Let’s get real, people! We are totally outside the system.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We begin another work week in the Land of Enslavement. Here is your scheduled programming on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
10:00 a.m. Selections From The Concert for George
One year after George Harrison’s death, his friends and family members gathered at the Royal Albert Hall in London for a celebration of his life and music.
1:00 p.m. Chris Hedges: War is a Force Which Gives Us Meaning
Hedges delves into the American psyche and tries to make sense of our affinity for war.
4:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & The Desert Rose Band: Bluegrass Festival
