The Summer of Love Rages On: Dusty’s Lost British Recordings, The Lost Cream Tapes, and John Wesley Harding Pays A Visit, Monday, August 24, 2020

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.

dustyspringfield_001-3

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?

Dylan & Cash in Nashville, Dusty in London, Neil Young in The Spotlight, & The Inner Sanctum, Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a full slate today, including Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash’s Nashville Skyline sessions!

Bob Dylan-Johnny Cash

Here’s your mid-week lineup!

12:00 p.m.   Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash, Nashville 1969   NEW!

During 1969’s Nashville Skyline sessions, Bob Dylan teamed up with Johnny Cash to record a dozen songs, only one of which made it to the album. These informal recordings are relaxed and loose, and are easy on the ears…a meeting of two giants. The back-up musicians include Carl Perkins on guitar.

3:00 p.m.    Dusty in London: The Lost British Recordings

Dusty Springfield truly epitomized the term “blue-eyed soul,” and her career spanned five decades.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young

Speaking of legendary artists, Neil Young has been a part of our musical DNA since the sixties as well, as a solo artist and with the Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

9:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning

The second episode of the series!

“Western Wall,” Steely Dan in the Spotlight, Hendrix & Stills “In Sessions,” and Dusty in London, Friday, December 20, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Back to a full slate of four programs today (with plenty of open stream in between 24/7), and an inspirational decision to play “Western Wall.”

Linda & Emmylou

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Western Wall, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris

I hate television, and I don’t watch it anymore. I knew Linda Ronstadt, one of my all-time favorite singers, was being honored by the Kennedy Center. So, I went looking for videos out there and I found them. None, however, were as moving as the tribute that Emmylou Harris paid to her friend and frequent collaborator.

It is in that spirit that we feature Western Wall, a beautiful collaboration between these two women. For me, the most striking thing about the album is the song selection and the composers featured. The set list is up already, and the composers of the songs appear there (please scroll to the bottom of the page).

Western Wall will, for absolute certain, do a stint as our Album of the Week. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feature it today!

2:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

5:00 p.m.      Jimi Hendrix & Stephen Stills: “In Sessions” (1968)

9:00 p.m.      Dusty in London, Dusty Springfield and the Lost British Recordings

Don’t miss it!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Dusty Springfield

2:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Madness!

Meet the little band that left Gainesville and turned into the juggernaut known as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. But Tom Petty was determined that Mudcrutch was far from being done.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Rolling Stones

9:00 p.m.    Van Morrison Live at The Capitol Theater (10/6/79)

We’re Back Tomorrow With ‘Ladies Only’

Good Morning, Ungovernables! One more day of open stream while we continue to upload some new files and eliminate others. We’re back with new programming on Friday when it will be Ladies Only day!

photovisi-Ladies Only

Don’t get your underwear in a twist, gentlemen. You dominate the airwaves like everything else. Even Sirius XM hasn’t put together a woman’s station yet, and there are plenty of female singers out there, and plenty whose talent has paved the way for today’s crop of talentless waifs who all sound the same. In fact, if there were a woman’s station today, I am convinced it would not include these pioneers.

Enjoy today’s open stream at http://www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio
