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.
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.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve been streaming for days now trying to fix a glitch we have without interrupting service. We may have lost that battle. Not quite sure yet. But for today, we’re going to enjoy some tunes from the those we consider the pioneers and powerhouses of women in music.
10:00 a.m. The All-Girl Revue, File 1: Various Artists
3:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too (also known as File 2): Various Artists
Both of these playlists offer a great line-up of women musicians across a broad range of styles.
8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt
This month, we pay respect to one of the most fearless artists of her generation with the release of the documentary, The Sound of My Voice. If she were a man, she never would have been made to wait for her induction into the Rock n’Roll Hall of Fame until 2012.
11:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro
Laura Nyro is another of those under appreciated performers. Her songwriting is legendary. Many have hit the big time with her songs, like The Fifth Dimension. Sometimes Nyro’s singing is overlooked, and that is a shame. We aim to correct that here.
Will it be a Ladies Only Weekend? It could be. I’m feelin’ it right now. Stick around and find out!
And by the way, in between these playlists we have our usual inclusive line up.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We begin another work week in the Land of Enslavement. Here is your scheduled programming on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

10:00 a.m. Emmylou Harris: Rare Classics and Forgotten Gems
Given the depth and breadth of Emmylou Harris’ body of work, it’s not surprising that some really cool music slips through the cracks once in a while! Here are some to consider.

Chris Hedges brings The Trial of the Catonsville Nine into focus here in the story of Philip and Daniel Berrigan’s classic act of non-violent civil disobedience.

Without a doubt, a legend who died far too soon. Laura Nyro wrote many songs for many people while she graced the planet. It’s time she get some air play.

Paul Craig Roberts always brings his unique perspective to every issue. This one is no exception.

11:00 a.m. Martin Luther King on the Three Evils of Society
