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! We’ve dug deep on the live music today to bring you Derek & The Dominos! Sit back and enjoy the music.
Here’s today’s line-up:
1:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding (aka, The Big O)
Gone before his time at the age of 26 in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of five teen-aged members of the BarKays, who had been recording and touring with him. The former well-driller from Macon, Georgia, is considered one of the greatest singers of all time, and certainly a pioneer in soul music and R & B.
4:00 p.m. Derek & The Dominos Live! NEW!
Derek & The Dominos was formed in the spring of 1970 by singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, and drummer Jim Gordon. They had all played together previously in Delaney & Bonnie and Friends (who you will hear on our station in the very near future). Also contributing to their musical efforts were Dave Mason, George Harrison (the band was formed while he was making All Things Must Pass), and legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman.
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1
Sit back and enjoy Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carlene Carter, Irma Thomas, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Lulu, and Patti Smith…just for starters.
It doesn’t get any better than this, Ungovernables! We’re totally OUTSIDE the system.
