*Oh, yeah, we invited the Dead for their usual 10:00 p.m. appearance to move us into the new week!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is the Women’s Week Grand Finale, and we end it the way we began: New live Linda Ronstadt at The Universal Amphitheater in L.A.
Here’s today’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. The Original All-Girl Revue!
The original is still the best. Hear Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Stevie Nicks, Carlene Carter and many others!
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris FINAL AIRING!
Today we bid a fond farewell to this great album. Tomorrow we will have a brand new selection for you.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at the Universal Amphitheater, October 3, 1977 NEW!
I hear it when you hear it. The buzz is that it’s great sound quality even though it’s a rare recording. Right now, this is the only UA recording I can find anywhere. And anyone who is familiar with Ronstadt’s career knows that her nights at the UA numbered in the 20 range during this time.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, N.C., April 12, 1978 NEW!
The Dead kicks out the jams with their usual 10:00 p.m. time slot, ushering us into the new week of music with a 3+ hour set live from North Carolina.
This is a great day to join us. It’s Saturday. This isn’t rocket science. And it’s free. And it’s outside the system. Every fucking day.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! The next few days here are big days for the ladies of rock n’ roll as we move toward the end of Women’s Week. Today’s programming is only seven hours worth, but it’s packed with great stuff.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore
Lucinda Williams hails from Louisiana and somehow you can just feel that coming through in her gritty music. Among her peers, she’s one of the most respected and influential singer-songwriters in the business. You’d never know it because — no matter how you look at it — women are still considered second-class citizens in the rock world. At least these women are. The little blonde sound-alike waifs they prop up on stage these days are no match.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris
This is one of those albums that musicians feel in their soul. It may not be a platinum seller, but that’s not why it’s being done. It’s one of the things you have the opportunity to make after you’ve paid your dues in the business. And both Ronstadt and Harris have done just that.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur NEW!
Friend of Linda, Bonnie, Kate & Anna McGarrigle and many others. Maria Muldaur has been out there since the great folk revival of the sixties. She has been gracing us with her own solo work and also singing background and harmonies with just about everyone else, including Linda Ronstadt, the Jerry Garcia Band, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and Paul Butterfield. Today she gets The Spotlight, and deservedly so.
This is — without a doubt — an excellent week to tune in #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We still have a long way to go with Women’s Week, and we have a lot of women still to air — both well known and not so well-known. Tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Women’s Week and we’re paying homage today to two women pioneers in music. Elvis wasn’t the first to sing Hound Dog.
Aretha Franklin circa 1970s
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton with the Muddy Waters Blues Band (1966) NEW!
Big Mama was the real deal. She sang Lieber & Stoller’s Hound Dog back in 1953, three years before Elvis hit the airwaves with the song, and made rock n’ roll history. Not only did she sing, but she played the drums and the harmonica. The pioneers of rock & roll? They know it all started with the blues and gospel. In case you haven’t figured it out, Black Music Matters.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris
If you’ve overlooked this album, shame on you. That’s all I’m saying. You have at least two more airings after today to rectify that little hole in your musical life.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Aretha Franklin NEW!
The Queen of Soul takes her turn in The Spotlight for the first time during Women’s Week, and it won’t be the last. We promise.
Listen, we added a bunch of listeners from Serbia last week. They’ve been back every day. What’s wrong with the U.S.? Bad taste in music? Perhaps, you like DJ’s with diahrrhea of the mouth. Perhaps you like continual commercials. Whatever.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We continue on with Women’s Week here in The Mermaid Lounge. No other radio venue we know gives women a decent platform. Women aren’t afterthoughts here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked NEW SPOOKTACULAR!
The first airing of our new Inner Sanctum episode.
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris
A very nice retrospective of Emmylou’s repertoire, which is extensive and defies all the rules. That’s why we love her here in the lounge.
7:00 p.m. Amy Winehouse Live From Porchester Hall, London, March 8, 2007 NEW!
When Amy Winehouse passed in 2011, she became yet another member of the ’27 Club’ of talented musicians who have died before their time. She joins Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and many others. She is in good company, but we wish she weren’t.
Oh, well, it’s good day in hell. Who said that? You need to join us today. We are totally free. I know you don’t believe me, but you can prove it to yourselves very easily by clicking on the link below. Listening is believing.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re kicking off Women’s Week with a final Ronstadt Birthday Bash concert and a set from the Queens of Soul. Western Wall: The Tucson Sessiions debuts as our Album of the Week.
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall, The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris NEW!
Two friends got together to sing, and the result was this most amazing album. It was the only tour I missed due to my partner’s illness at the time. It was hard for me to part with those tickets. On the bright side, I gave them to Ronstadt fans…my sister and her husband.
3:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theater in Boston, May 14, 1995 NEW!
I did not miss this one though, and it was one of the most amazing performances Linda Ronstadt ever delivered. The Orpheum may be old, but it’s a great sounding venue. Valerie Carter opened this show and then joined Ronstadt on stage during her show. This incredible set list is up under the Playlist tab. Just scroll to the bottom.
Note: We will be featuring Valerie Carter on Wednesday.
7:00 p.m. The Queens of Soul, Volume 1: Various Artists
Hear Carla Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Little Eva, Ann Peebles, The Supremes, The Ronettes and many others!
Today should be the day you tune us in. No other radio station I know gives women a platform like this one, not even Sirius-XM. And unlike many others, we’re totally free. We don’t even ask for a credit card.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are again at the end of the week, and we’ve got some great stuff here. Today’s Emmylou Harris adventure is new to our station!
Here’s Friday’s programming:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan (with and without The Wallflowers)
Yes, it’s Bob’s boy. And he’s really more than just a little good. Today we feature his solo stuff plus music he made with his band, The Wallflowers.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday FINAL AIRING!
Today will be the final airing of this weeks’ episode of The Inner Sanctum. On Monday, we’ll have a brand new episode.
7:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers Live at The Ryman (April 30-May 2, 1991) NEW!
Emmylou Harris and her acoustic band, The Nash Ramblers, played three nights at the run-down Ryman in 1991. It is captured here in the 1992 Grammy Award winning performance. This event spearheaded the revitalization of the former home of the Grand Ole Opry. My friend George and I were so taken by country music back in the day, that we drove to Nashville to go to the Opry. It was 1977 and I was just 23; George was 21, We never got to see the Ryman Auditorium from the inside. By then, the Grand Ole Opry had moved to new digs. But I’m sure glad the Ryman is back.
We play some great shit. And we don’t over-play either. We run 24/7 and offer just about seven hours of programming; the rest is all open stream. We’re free. We don’t ask for your personal information. We do not require a credit card. Ever.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! I don’t know where music fits into your life, but I know where it fits into mine. And there are far worse ways to start the week.
Here’s your Monday musical landscape:
12:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris With The Desert Rose Band
The Desert Rose Band was formed in 1985 by Chris Hillman (former member of The Byrds and co-founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons), John Jorgenson, and Herb Pederson (who has played with Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, John Fogerty, Stephen Stills and many others). Add Emmylou Harris to that mix, and you’ve got a musical bonfire.
4:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Monday! Mudcrutch Live at the Fonda Theater, Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2016 (Fan Recorded) NEW!
This is a rarity in every sense of the word. Some days, things just fall in your lap, and that’s what happened here. I hit the veritable motherlode, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. It is a treat to hear Tom Petty and Mudcrutch live in concert, just as it’s a rush to hear Tom Petty with the Heartbreakers on stage. You can’t touch this shit.
The set list for this show will be up and running in the Playlist tab shortly. Just scroll to the bottom!
8:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship NEW!
Get your spooky on, people, because The Death Ship just pulled into a port near you.
Wherever you’re at, you need to be here with us on #BecomeUngovernable Radio because we’re all about being outside the system. Tune us in simply by clicking the link below. Yes, fucking Virginia, it’s as simple as that.
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.
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.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s an all-girls day here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, and we’ve got some great stuff scattered in among our stream.
Here’s your line-up:
12:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too
Featuring Linda Ronstadt, Joan Baez, Etta James, Bobbie Gentry, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, and more!
4:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt Live at The Rainbow Room, Sigma Sound Studios NEW!
Bonnie Raitt’s performance at The Rainbow Room of Sigma Sound on February 22, 1972, as broadcast over WMMR in Philly.
7:00 p.m. Shawn Colvin Live on Tour 2009
Today we feature a live performance by Shawn Colvin from her 2009 concert tour.
Tune us in, people. You don’t know what you’re missing until you do.
