Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your planned programming for today on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We’re slipping in an extra musical special today in honor of Dan Fogelberg’s birthday, so be sure to tune in
10: 00 a.m. Jackson Browne & Warren Zevon: Live Acoustic Set
The boys hang out together singing each other’s songs. What could be better?
11:15 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dan Fogelberg
The man who defined soft rock died far too young at the age of 56. He was one of those guys who flew under the radar, but shouldn’t have. His album, Souvenirs, is one of the best albums ever made. We’re slipping this extra set in today in honor of Dan’s birthday.
1:00 p.m. Sarah Freels: Wake Up America!
Sarah talks about controlled opposition and how WikiLeaks helped us navigate the minefield.
4:00 p.m. Mudcrutch Madness
The band that left Gainesville with Tom Petty. In L.A., it morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. But Tom decided to bring them back again, and what a great decision is was. The version of Hungry No More on this playlist was performed at Boston’s House of Blues in 2016 is he absolute finest recording of that song ever.
7:30 p.m. Head-to-Head With Norman Finkelstein
Is it time to boycot Israel? Is this really a question?
Good Evening, Ungovernables! Since I’m up and out very early tomorrow morning, let me give you the lay of the land on tomorrow’s scheduled programming!
10:00 a.m. That Sweet Soul Sound
The music of Aretha, the Four Tops, the Temptations, and Sly & The Family Stone. And that’s just for starters!
1:00 p.m. Alison Weir: The Global Campaign to Stifle Criticism of Israel
There is indeed a global campaign afoot, and it’s absurd that we the people are being told we cannot criticize the terrorist state of Israel. All governments are subject to criticism.
4:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band: Play All Night, Live at The Beacon Theater
The legendary granddaddy of Southern fried rock tearing it up at The Beacon Theater in New York.
7:30 p.m. Norman Finkelstein: Time to Boycott Israel?
Norman Finkelstein more than holds his own during this discussion.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a really great treat in the first scheduled hour of special programming today! Don’t miss it!
10:00 a.m. Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session
Two blues greats combine for one hell of a playlist! This event was recorded live for television on December 6, 1983 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
1:00 p.m. Governments Lie: Howard Zinn on Class Warfare, Immigration, Justice, Film and History
Perspective from one of our most treasured American voices. Nothing Zinn said then is obsolete now. In fact, our condition has grown worse.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Traveling Wilburys
The Wilburys had their own careers when they decided to get together just to have fun and make music back in the 80s. The result? Undoubtedly the greatest supergroup of all time with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Roy Orbison. We also should never forget legendary drummer Jim Keltner. You had to be special to be a Wilbury. Keltner was most definitely a Wilbury.
7:00 p.m. Alison Weir: Against Our Better Judgement
We feed the terrorist state of Israel rougly $10.41 million a day, or $3.8 billion a year. It is high time Americans understood the truth about Israel, how she was created, and whom the United States victimized along the way.
Good morning, Ungovernables! Hitting the salt mines early in the morning tomorrow, so I need to get this house in order now. Here’s your special programming for Friday, July 26th.
10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The J. Geils Band
That “other” Boston band, frenetic and funky is how they are described. I much prefer them to Band No. 1. But that’s me.
1:00 p.m. Abby Martin on How Propaganda Engineers Consent for Empire
Abby Martin of the Empire Files talks to Mark Crispin Miller about the powerful role propaganda plays in our daily lives.
4:00 p.m. The ‘All-Girl’ Revue
A couple of hours of nothing but the ladies of rock n’ roll.
7:00 p.m. Alison Weir on the Global Effort to Criminalize Criticism of Israel
It’s here and it’s real. We’d better find a way to combat this.
9:00 p.m. Alison Weir on The Global Campaign to Criminalize Criticism of Israel
Tune in for a recent talk by Alison Weir on this issue. This is a critical facet of the march toward stifling dissent here in Empire.
Tune in tonight on #BecomeUngovernable Radio!
