Deb’s Stream Offers Up The Animals, Emmylou Harris Rarities Are On Tap, and John Fogerty Live From Red Rocks Later On, Monday, August 31, 2020

It’s another happy Monday here in paradise, but it doesn’t have to suck, people. Find refuge here in The Mermaid Lounge with #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

John Fogerty-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

10:00 a.m.   Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems

I don’t know if I’m alone in this phenomenon, but sometimes I hear Emmylou Harris and say, “Wow, I forgot that one because nobody ever plays it!” Well, we play them here, and we’re giving them to you today.

2:00 p.m.     Deb’s Stream: Absolutely the Animals!

The Animals have been around since the early sixties, and they are one badass British rhythm & blues band. The band was formed in Newcastle upon Tyne, but moved to London when they finally took hold in 1964. Eric Burdon is a favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge.

7:00 p.m.      John Fogerty’s 50-Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, June 20, 2019  NEW! 

In 2019, John Fogerty celebrated Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 50-year anniversary of their appearance at Woodstock (the original, of course) with an appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheater, one of the most beautiful of all concert venues on the planet. We love both John Fogerty and Creedence here in The Mermaid Lounge. Enjoy!

Creedence is in The Spotlight, The Final Airing of ‘The Melody of Death’ & Another Great Ronstadt Birthday Bash Playlist, Friday, July 17, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is a spectacular line-up today starting right off the bat, as my grandmother would say. And it includes yet another amazing Ronstadt playlist.

Here’s Friday’s line-up!

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

Also known as Creedence or CCR. Four guys from the Bay area who sounded like they just rumbled out of a Lousiana swamp. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are the favorite American band around these parts. Creedence runs a hot and strong second.

3:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: The Melody of Death   FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of The Melody of Death. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode available.

7:00 p.m.    Linda Ronstadt: Forgotten Gems, Rarities, Outtakes, Bootlegs   NEW!

This is a great playlist of stuff that may never have been heard before by most radio listeners. Some may have been forgotten. Some have never existed in recorded form. Enjoy this playlist.

The songs are already up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom!

This would be a most excellent day to make #BecomeUngovernable Radio your radio station of choice. It’s free. Totally. Every day and in every way. Completely built OUTSIDE the system. I promise.

CCR in the Spotlight, Lucinda Williams at the Fillmore, Happy 43rd to Petty’s Debut Album, and Big Pink’s Last Play, Saturday, November 9, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some great musical guests programmed in to the rotation today, so let’s get down to it.

lucinda-williams

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

How a bunch of guys hailing from Berkeley, California, could sound like they just walked out of Cajun country has always been a mystery to me, but CCR did it with authority. This is one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands ever. And by the way, happy birthday to Tom Fogerty!

2:00 p.m.      Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore

5:00 p.m.      The Band: Music From Big Pink

This will be the final airing of this week’s album pick. Next Monday, there’ll be a new album on the front page of the blog and playing on the station.

9:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Debut Album

Happy 43rd birthday release date for the self-titled Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers debut album, released on November 9, 1976. To hear Petty tell the story, it just sat there and did nothing initially. Then somebody came in and said, “They’re playing you up in Boston.” The rest, I am happy to say as a native Bostonian, is history.

11:00 p.m.    The Ungovernables Report

With Sarah Freels and Adam Rice.
