Good Morning, Ungovernables and Hippie Freaks! It’s Tuesday, and we’ve got a fantastic bit of programming for you today. It’s hotter than Hades here in the Boston area. Good day to stay in and enjoy.
Here’s today’s musical smogasbord:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Johnny Winter and Dr. John Live in Sweden (1987)
Two of my favorite bluesmen, live in one place at the same time. Love this shit.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Literally, one of the most bombastic debuts in rock music history. With one album, Jimi Hendrix went from struggling artist to gamechanger. His unique style would change the world of psychedelic rock forever.
7:00 p.m. The Best of the Summer of Love, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
The music released during 1967 was, literally, a cultural smorgasbord. It was musical nirvana from Haight-Ashbury all the way to my little street in Medford, where my friends and I lay in the driveway that summer with a transistor listening to WMEX. Back in the day, AM was king.
Tune us in, people. You will not regret it. It will take ONE singular visit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re got some interesting programming today, including a new live performance by Badfinger.
Here’s today’s programming!
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dr. John
I find it hard to believe that people wouldn’t know Dr. John (aka, the Nitetripper) a man whose music defied labels by combining blues, pop, jazz, boogie-woogie, funk and rock n’ roll.
3:00 p.m. Badfinger Live at the BBC 1972-1973 NEW!
Here I am in 2020, and I’m still a big-time Badfinger fan. This was, simply put, a band that made some great music. Had they not been screwed over by their manager, the sky was the limit (in the immortal words of Tom Petty).
6:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Band by The Band
The Band is a thing of beauty. There is nothing bad in their music catalogue, and they have withstood the test of time.
Please tune us in. We’re free. There are no commercials. No politicians. No bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today is Fat Tuesday, and we’re celebrating with our new Down in N’Awlins Playlist!
Here’s your Fat Tuesday line-up!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: Irma Thomas, The Soul Queen of New Orleans
A contemporary of Aretha Franklin who never seemed to reach that plateau for some unexplained reason. But Irma Thomas is a rare bird, and is heralded as The Soul Queen of New Orleans for a reason.
2:00 p.m. Down in N’Awlins
The music of New Orleans is as eclectic as its people. We’ve got everything in this playlist — jazz, brass, cajun, zydeco. Some of the best musicians on the planet have been born in Louisiana, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Lucinda Williams, and Dr. John. We’ve got them in here too. Come join the fun!
6:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 by The Traveling Wilburys
8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of George Harrison
Happy Birthday, George Harrison! Whether a Beatle, a Wilbury, or a solo artist, George is sorely missed. We celebrate his birth and his life on this earth today.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re heading for Fat Tuesday as we begin our week-long tribute to the music and legends of New Orleans! And I might add that we have a pretty great new Album of the Week.
Here’s today’s planned programming:
12:00 p.m. The Bluesiana Triangle: The Combined Talents of Dr. John, Art Blakeley, and David “Fathead” Newman
Singing and playing Da Blues down in New Orleans, Louisiana!
3:00 p.m. BeauSoleil: Live From Louisiana!
Heralded as the best Cajun band ever, with David Doucet at the epicenter. BeauSoleil plays music rooted in the traditional folk tunes of the Cajuns and Creoles of Louisiana.
7:00 p.m. Album of the Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume 1
Released in 1988, and thus began a magical journey indeed for all of us with the Wilburys: Spike (George Harrison), Clayton (Jeff Lynne), Muddy (Tom Petty), Boo (Bob Dylan) and Lefty Jr. (Roy Orbison; named posthumously). There has not been another supergroup like it. There may not ever be.
This week begins a musical experience that extends far beyond the Mardi Gras, so be sure to tune us in!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It turns out to be a somewhat bluesy day here today at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Blues Train: Big Joe Turner, Roomful of Blues, and Dr. John
It’s like the trifecta of blues; can’t go wrong here.
2:00 p.m. Lucinda Williams Live at Austin City Limits (1998)
5:00 p.m. Hooker & Heat: John Lee Hooker & Canned Heat Together
9:00 p.m. Roy Orbison & Friends: The Original Black & White Night (1988)
Roy Orbison invites a few friends over to sing some tunes. Wouldn’t you know that Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, and Bruce Springsteen all showed up! Backing vocals eagerly supplied by Bonnie Raitt, k d lang, and Jennifer Warnes.
11:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Band On The Run, Paul McCartney & Wings
