It’s Saturday at The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge!

Yes, it’s Saturday here, but retail hell still exists and we are still cookin’ here at the College of Rock n’ Roll knowledge. Shit happens no matter what day of the week it is!

Diana Ross & The Supremes doing what they do best.

Today in rock music history:

November 14, 1960: It’s Now or Never by Elvis Presley becomes the fastest-selling single ever in the UK, selling 780,000 copies a week.

Also on this day, Ray Charles goes to #1 for the first time ever with Georgia On My Mind, his ninth hit.

November 14, 1962: The Beatles played the final show of a 14-night run at the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany. We will soon be featuring these performances here at $BecomeUngovernable Radio.

November 14, 1964: The Supremes reign at the top of the charts for the third week with their first hit, Baby Love.

November 14, 1967: Pink Floyd opens for The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and play the first show at Royal Albert Hall in London.

November 14, 1970: Gladys Knight & The Pips release If I Were Your Woman.

Also on this day, Santana releases their version of Black Magic Woman. Most people do not know that the song was originally written by Peter Green, and released by Fleetwood Mac in 1968, when they were a blues band.

November 14, 1971: Rod Stewart & Faces release Stay With Me.

11:00 a.m.   The Best of The Summer of Love! Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band  by The Beatles

Probably the most iconic album released during the Summer of Love phase was this brilliant effort by The Beatles. They would follow this up later with Magical Mystery Tour, but this one was a tough act to follow.

3:00 p.m.     Elvis Presley: The Sun Sessions   NEW!

Elvis Aaron Presley, known simply as Elvis, passed away at Graceland 43 years ago yesterday. Elvis was the inspiration for many of the musicians we are celebrating on this radio station. And that’s why we celebrate him today.

7:00 p.m.     The Summer of Love Playlist, Volume 1

There were many players during the Summer of Love, and many may not make it to the spotlight. Nevertheless, they gave us some great music. Hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Scott McKenzie, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Association, Donovan, Marvin Gaye, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Electric Prunes, Procol Harum, and many more!

Elvis in Nashville in ’56, The Beatles in Transformation, and The Pretenders Return, on Thursday, June 4, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have some sweet stuff in our musical bag of tricks today. You’re going to love it. But only if you tune us in!

Elvis Nashvlle Sessions 1956

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

12:00 p.m.  Elvis Presley: The 1956 Nashville Recordings    NEW!

The 1956 Nashville sessions resulted in the very first album ever released by Elvis Presley. The album spent ten weeks at number one, and became the first rock n’ roll album to hit the top of the charts. It was also the first million selling album of the genre. The album also spawned the number one hit single, Heartbreak Hotel, undoubtedly one of my favorite Elvis Presley songs of all time. They don’t call Elvis “the king” for nothing. He was the inspiration for many, including the Beatles and Tom Petty, who met him at the age of 11. The rest is history.

5:00 p.m.    The Beatles: The Transformative Years

We are replaying this great playlist today that made its debut on #BecomeUngovernable Radio on May 16. Tomorrow, we add the third playlist in our Beatles series.

All three playlists are now up and available in the Playlist section of the blog. Just scroll to the bottom!

9:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Learning To Crawl by The Pretenders

We’re back with this great album from The Pretenders. If you haven’t heard it yet this week, you’ll only have Saturday. On Sunday a new album will be chosen.

Tune us in, people. You have no idea what you are missing!
