Blind from birth and raised in inner-city Detroit, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Wonder was an accomplished musician by the age of eight, and recorded his first song at the age of 12. Today, we give him his due.

6:00 p.m.    Bob Dylan & George Harrison Almost Went to See Elvis (1997)

It’s a mystery, folks. According to Harrison, Elvis stood them up. But according Dylan, it was the other way around.

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!

11:00 a.m.     Bob Dylan & George Harrison Almost Went to See Elvis!

According to legend, Elvis stood them up. In fact, according to Dylan, they were supposed to record with Elvis and they stood him up. Nobody will ever know the truth. Maybe.

2:00 p.m.      Bonnie Raitt: Live at the Troubadour (1972)  NEW PLAYLIST!
