11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Bob Dylan’s Desire

This was the first time I heard Emmylou Harris in any serious fashion. I had heard her sing on some of Linda Ronstadt’s music, and she was becoming known to me then, but the raw power of her performances on this album really struck me. It was only much later that I found out she did not know that Dylan would use all the material as it happened, with no post-production. Amazing. I immediately went out and bought Elite Hotel. The rest is history.

2:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones: Live at the Fonda Theater

A brand new addition to our “live” music collection!

5:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Dan Fogelberg

9:00 p.m.      Emmylou Harris & The Desert Rose Band

It inadvertently turned out to be an Emmylou kind of day. Here she steps out with the Desert Rose Band, a country rock band out of California founded in 1985 by Chris Hillman (formerly of The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers), Herb Pederson (formerly of The Eagles), and John Jorgenson.

Bob Dylan’s “Desire” is Album of the Week; After That, It’s Open Stream Sunday, February 2, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s an easy, breezy day here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, with the exception of our Album of the Week at high noon!

Bob Dylan Desire

Here’s your Sunday line-up:

12:00 noon     Album of the Week: Bob Dylan’s Desire (1976)

Desire was Bob Dylan’s 17th studio album back in 1976, for a little perspective on the breadth and depth of this guy’s career. The woman behind the album was his estranged wife, Sara, but the woman backing him up on the album was also a factor.

Desire was the very first time I heard Emmylou Harris sing anywhere and really paid attention. I was hooked. It is her hauntingly beautiful vocals that stand out for me, along with the gypsy violin played by another woman, Scarlet Rivera. As for Dylan? He’s Dylan, man.

This is a great album. Enjoy.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re switching it up a bit today on both content and timing. We think you’re going to like what we have today!

Linda Dolly Emmylou

11:00 a.m.     Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton: The Trio Sessions

This is a bona fide all-girl supergroup. Like the Traveling Wilburys, it was easy to make  music together (beyond their sheer talent) because they enjoyed each others’ company. The Trio Sessions give you the background: Alternative takes, some unreleased tunes, and plenty of great insight.

5:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at Fenway Park, Boston (2014)

The Hypnotic Eye tour rolls through Boston producing what is considered one of their finest live performances.

“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!

The Supergroup Nobody Talks About, The Petty Party Continues, and a Special Trip to the Bluebird Cafe, Sunday, October 6, 2019

Good Evening, Ungovernables. We have some great topics of interest here tonight, including a supergroup that nobody calls a supergroup. But this is a fucking supergroup.

Linda Dolly Emmy

 

 

11:00 a.m.    Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton: The Trio Collection and More

These three might be the only all-female supergroup that ever was, but that is exactly what they were. This playlist encompasses 2.5 hours of incredible music from their Trio albums, and more. There are alternate versions, outtakes that have never been heard before, and remixes/remasters. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

4:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts and B-Sides

As I’ve said many times, most bands would kill for their B-sides.

9:00 p.m.      Steve Early, Townes VanZandt and Guy Clark Live at the Bluebird Cafe

Three of the outlaws of country music. When Tom Petty calls most ‘country’ groups around today “bad pop artists with fiddles,” he is not talking about this trio, that’s for sure.

11:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Hypnotic Eye

This is not only one of the greatest Tom Petty albums ever, but one of the best albums of all time. See for yourself.
