Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re in our final week of The Summer of Love and we’re rolling along nicely on a Monday morning, as you will see.
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! John Wesley Harding by Bob Dylan NEW!
Dylan’s eighth studio album, released on December 27, 1967, marked a return to his folk roots after a few blues-influenced rock albums. It was very well received, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard charts and No. 1 in the UK. It was recorded around the same time as the home recordings made with The Band, which were eventually released as The Basement Tapes.
2:00 p.m. Dusty in London: The Lost British Recordings
There are fucking days when I cannot believe that people do not have a grasp on what Dusty Springfield has meant to music in general, let alone as a woman pioneer in this hell-bent male profession. But we here in The Mermaid Lounge “get it” for sure.
7:00 p.m. Acid: The Lost Cream Tapes (1967-1968)
This bootleg was actually released in 2005 and are alternate recordings of several songs as well as some jamming. Very cool. And really good quality, so enjoy. By the way, there are a couple of Falstaff Beer Commercial recordings tossed in, proving once again that advertising has been king for a long time.
Tune us in. Turn yourself on. And drop the rest of the shit out the window. It’s Monday. You really didn’t want to work anyway, did you?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This was one of the easiest programming days on the planet for me. Everything just fell into place. I just love that shit.
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors
Both The Beatles and The Doors had two album releases in 1967. This was the second for The Doors and it is most definitely Album of the Week-worthy even though we did feature it once last week. So, here it is again!
3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists
This is always my favorite Sunday of the month. The only question ever is do I choose Volume 1 or Volume 2. Today, the decision was easy because it’s everything the latter part of the sixties were about musically. Features The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, The Yardbirds, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, The Mamas & The Papas, Donovan, The Zombies, and so much more. Over five hours of uninterrupted sixties streaming!
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That would be the order of this day, music lovers. We are totally free every day. There’s never a credit card required or, for that matter, any personal information necessary. Just pull up a tab and click on the link below.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We will continue on today with another Summer of Love musical offering, but we don’t stop there!
Here’s your line-up for Monday:
11:00 a.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! Disraeli Gears by Cream NEW!
Disraeli Gears was the second studio album released by Cream — Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. The album was released in November 1967, and features the hits Sunshine of Your Love, SWLABR, Tales of Brave Ulysses, and Strange Brew. Here, we give you the special extended version!
4:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Live at the Fonda Theater, June 26, 2016
When Mudcrutch took to the stage, it was as if Tom Petty never had another band. They were that good. This is a rare live bootleg, so don’t miss it.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan
This was one of our very first Spotlight features when we started out three years ago. It’s still one of our favorites.
Great day to join in the Summer of Love festivities, people. We are totally free, built outside the system, with no commercials and no bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.
Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams
Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.
7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017 NEW!
Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a find day here in Boston, home of The Mermaid Lounge and #BecomeUngovernable Radio. Europe is already on. Where the hell are you?
Here’s what’s in store for you today!
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers FINAL AIRING!
We bid a very fond farewell to one of the best albums the Heartbreakers ever made. Tomorrow, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week when you wake up!
6:00 p.m. Cream: The Farewell Concert 1968: Live BBC Transmission
Yet another great supergroup — featuring Eric Clapton (an official Guitar God), bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker — formed in London in 1966. Clapton’s stints with The Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers had run their course, and he was looking for something new. He found it. They gave their final live performance at Royal Albert Hall in London in 1968.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Boston Garden, Boston, MA: September 21, 1991 NEW!
My old stomping grounds: My beloved Boston Garden, now just a memory as we’ve exchanged it for the loud thumping, screaming, thunderous insane banging of the shithole known as TD Garden. I’ve been at TD Garden just once. That was quite enough. Thanks, anyway. But I digress. I was also at this particular Grateful Dead show. I remember it fondly.
Kids, it’s time for you to understand what radio was meant to be. We’ve got it right here.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a light programming day, but it’s pretty powerful programming!
Here’s your Sunday Funday programming!
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Blind Faith, by Blind Faith
The first and only album by this supergroup was released by Polydor Records in 1969. The band was made up of Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker from Cream, Steve Winwood of The Spencer Davis Group, and Rick Grech of Family.
You can always learn more about our Album of the Week by clicking on its photo in the blog’s sidebar!
2:00 p.m. Sounds of the Supergroups: Various Artists NEW!
Speaking of supergroups, this playlist covers Blind Faith, The Traveling Wilburys, Cream, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and the supergroup nobody talks about…Ronstadt, Harris & Parton. It’s spectacular.
5:00 p.m. Bob Dylan and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Sacramento (’86)
After our Dylan & Heartbreakers feature, we’ll be on wide open stream!
It’s Sunday. A day of rest. Tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re back on the programming track today as we move toward our N’Awlins Mardi Gras Extravaganza.
Here’s Tuesday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. ACID: The Lost Cream Tapes (1967)
2:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers: Live at the Beacon Theater (1976)
The Beacon is one great venue; the place to be. Smaller and more intimate. Bands would play as many nights there as it took to satisfy the customer demand rather than play in an arena.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
9:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Eat A Peach by The Allman Brothers Band

Here’s today’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. Stevie Wonder Live at The Rainbow Room (1973)
2:00 p.m. Tom Petty: The “Lost” Tapes
It wasn’t so much that they were “lost,” but that they were shelved for whatever reason. Now that Tom’s gone, they should check those shelves regularly for stuff like this.
5:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue
9:00 p.m. ACID: The Lost Cream Tapes
In between, we’re just streaming the best music ever.
