Jeff Lynne’s ELO in The Spotlight, The “Inner Sanctum” Replays, and Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris on the Road, Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Truck Day at Ace and I’m already on the run, so here’s the lay of the musical landscape for today!

Here’s today’s line-up!

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Electric Light Orchestra

Tom Petty called Jeff Lynne the best music producer on the planet. He found The Electric Light Orchestra back in 1970, took the Heartbreakers to new heights, and was a Traveling Wilbury. That’s all you need to know about this guy.

4:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Episode 3, Death Has Claws

At least this particular death does.

6:00 p.m.     Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris: Live in Verona, Italy,  June 3, 2006   NEW!

Join us this evening for a show from their All the Roadrunning tour. What seems like an unlikely pairing is a real treat.

Join us while I’m out there slaving. Someone has to have some fun today.

It’s Almost an Open Stream Day, But with Benefits. The Trio Sessions and a Replay of ‘The Inner Sanctum’ Are On Tap, Friday, May 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables. Today we have an amazing ‘new’ music offering in the Trio Sessions with Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton.

Here’s your Friday line-up!

1:00 p.m.   The Trio Sessions With Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton   NEW!

I guess Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce qualified as a supergroup when they formed Cream. Why these three ladies are not technically considered one is well beyond my understanding, but they certainly are here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

We have featured the Trio albums in the past, but these are the Trio Sessions, with remasters, alternate versions and previously unreleased material. If you’ve never heard angels sing before, you are about to.

By the way, you can see the entire playlist in our Playlist section. Just scroll to the bottom of the page!

6:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: Black Sea Gull (Replay)

Tune us in. Next week, we will air a new episode.

Do yourself a favor and tune us in. We’re dead serious about music.

Emmylou Harris’ groundbreaking step added a new dimension to her already-sellar career. She assembled a band she called Spyboy to develop a ‘stripped down’ approach to the music she was making at the time. Read about it here.

8:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

Tom Petty mentored the Shelters and produced their first album. At the time of his death, he was working with them on their second album. The Shelters forged on without their friend, and finished the album. It is included in this playlist.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are ramping up for another fine day of programming before tomorrow’s Open Stream Day.

Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

12:00 p.m.   The Allman Brothers Band & Eric Clapton, Live at the Beacon (2009)

Last week we featured Willie’s boy. This week, Bob’s boy. He’s no slouch either.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday, Emmylou Harris is Back With the AOW & The Moody Blues are “Live” at Red Rocks, Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! AOW should not be confused with AOC (please). And we have our usual fine collection of musical minstrels on tap for today.

Chuck Berry-Bo Diddley On Stage

Here’s is your line-up:

1:00 p.m.   It’s Tuesday Bluesday! Chuck Berry & Bo Diddley: Two Great Guitars and the Super Blues Band   NEW!

As Mr. Petty says, “Elvis was king but Diddley was daddy.”  What we have here are two real innovators in rock n’ roll together. And nothing bad can come of that, as you will see. 

4:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Elite Hotel by Emmylou Harris

Elite Hotel was Harris’ third studio release, and the second release in 1975 (the first being the critically acclaimed Pieces of the Sky).

7:00 p.m.   The Moody Blues at Red Rocks Ampitheater with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, September 9, 1992

In spite of their long and glorious career, this marks the first time The Moody Blues ever performed live with a full symphony orchestra. If nobody has ever been to Red Rocks, it’s an amazing experience.

Tune us in, people. It’s fun. It’s free. No bullshit. No charges. No personal information or credit cards required. Ever.

It’s a Sixties Sunday! And “Elite Hotel” Debuts as Album of the Week on an Easter Sunday Lockdown, April 12, 2020

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Elite Hotel, by Emmylou Harris NEW!

The first time I ever heard Emmylou Harris sing was on Bob Dylan’s Desire album. I was hooked. When I found Elite Hotel, my love affair began in earnest, and it has not abated. Elite Hotel was Emmylou’s third album release, and her second in 1975. It was preceded by Pieces of The Sky, also a critically-acclaimed release. We will have Pieces of the Sky up in the future.

2:00 p.m.     The Sixties Rotation: Various Artists

It’s back! Five hours of continuous streaming of the best music in history, featuring The Beatles, The Doors, The Kinks, The Shirelles, Janis Joplin, The Byrds, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye…we’ve got it all!

A Tribute to the Poet, Traffic Live at Woodstock ’94, and a Lesson in Folk Music, Thursday, March 5, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some great new music today, as always. And a great programming schedule.

townes van zandt

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Poet: A Tribute to Townes VanZandt

I have found many who don’t recognize the name. But those of us who do understand why there’s a tribute album. Despite a troubled life. VanZandt was an influence on many and many have recorded his songs, including Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson,  and Guy Clark.

2:00 p.m.       Traffic: Live at Woodstock ’94    NEW!

Yeah, there was only one real Woodstock. We know that. However, Traffic and Steve Winwood are a staple here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, no matter where they play.

5:00 p.m.      Folk Music From A to Z

In keeping with the Townes VanZandt theme, we’re featuring a great folk music playlist today. Enjoy.

9:00 p.m.      Album of the Week: The Doors, by The Doors

We’re free. Always. No bullshit. No advertising.
