We Get It Going With The Heartbreakers’ Live Anthology & “Court & Spark” Debuts as Album of The Week on Sunday, March 22, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Music is my great release in a time of stress, and I’m grateful to have #BecomeUngovernable Radio. You should give it a shot and tune us in. We’re rockin’ out with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Crank it up.

Here’s today’s programming!

2:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology, Parts 1 & 2

This music was made for crankin’ people. No doubt about it. The Heartbreakers were in their element playing live in front of an audience.

6:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Court & Spark by Joni Mitchell  NEW!

Canada has given us some brilliant musicians, Joni Mitchell being one of them. Court & Spark was Mitchell’s sixth studio album and it was released on New Year’s Day, 1974. It was a hit right out of the gate, both commercially and critically, and it remains as the pinnacle of Joni Mitchell’s long and fruitful career. 

All around and in between, we’re streaming more than 20,000 of the best songs you’ll ever hear. Tune us in, people.

Tom Rush in The Spotlight, Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Hang Out, and “Who’s Next,” Thursday, March 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Listening to #BecomeUngovernable Radio has been proven to be very good for your emotional well being. (Not really. I just made that shit up.) But you should tune us in anyway. We’ve got a good one today.

TOM-RUSH

Here’s your social distancing line-up!

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Who’s Next, by The Who

There’s a very interesting story behind this album and where the material evolved from. You can learn more by clicking on the image to the right in the Album of the Week feature box.

2:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush     NEW!

Tom Rush is one of those guys who could easily go unnoticed, but that would be a giant mistake. Tom Rush has influenced an entire generation of musicians, including Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. He is credited by Rolling Stone magazine with creating the era of the singer-songwriter. Tom Rush has been a quiet force in music for a very long time. I recently saw him in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (his birth place), and he was doing just fine at 79.

7:00 p.m.       Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck: Live at the Country Club, Receda

Tune us in, people. All you need is a computer or a phone.

The All-Girl Revue, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ in San Jose, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and Band On The Run, Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Does it get any better than this? Of course, it can. This is #BecomeUngovernable Radio where everything we do every day is done without giving one thought to the system.

Springsteens Seeger Sessions-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Paul McCartney & Wings, Band On The Run

The problem with being a Beatle is that — as a solo artist — you are always measured by the band’s standards. When it’s one of you, those are eight tough shoes to fill. This album was, without a doubt, outstanding. And given the various calamities that took place during the recording of this album, it’s a miracle it was. You can read about it here.

2:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3

Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris, Melanie, and Dolly Parton grace this particular volume.

5:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones, One From the Vault: San Jose, 1999

Mick and the boys tear it up.

9:00 p.m.      Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions

This shit is just unbelievable. Springsteen pays appropriate homage to folk god Pete Seeger.

Before, in between, at the end…in fact, 24/7: We are open all day and night with the best music on the damned planet. See for yourself.

Bob Marley at The Beacon, Joni Mitchell at Red Rocks, Our Folk Music Playlist, and a New Album of the Week, Sunday, December 22, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a full slate today, including Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye as our Album of the Week!

joni

Here’s today’s line up!

11:00 a.m.     Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Beacon Theater, New York

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Hypnotic Eye, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

It should be no surprise that this is one great album. Just when I thought they’d never top or even equal Damn The Torpedoes, they did. The only surprise here is that this band continued to make great music and remain at the top so late into its career.

This was the band’s 13th and final studio album before Petty’s unexpected and untimely death, and was released on July 29, 2014. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200.

5:00 p.m.      Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks 1983

9:00 p.m.      Folk Music From A to Z

Hear Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Judy Collins, Odetta, Joni Mitchell, and more!

Tune us in, people. You won’t regret it.
