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.

Linda Dolly Emmylou-3

 

 

 

We’re Back With Ladies’ Only Day!

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.

 

RONSTADTRAITT2

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.

Laura Nyro

10:00 a.m.   Emmylou Harris: Rare Classics and Forgotten Gems

1:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges on The Nature and Cost of Civil Disobedience

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.
