The Heartbreakers’ Mojo Tour, Steely Dan Live in Houston, and “Running On Empty” Returns on Thursday, May 7, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve made it past midweek. That’s always an accomplishment in Empire. We’ve got some great music on tap too.

Steely Dan-2

Here’s your Thursday line-up:

12:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live on The Mojo Tour (1999)

My favorite road warriors return. To fully appreciate this band, you had to see them on stage. Maybe you never did. I suggest you might want to seek out some concert footage. They are everywhere. For a reason. This show is from August 3, 1999 when they played the Target Center in Minneapolis.

4:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty

Browne’s road anthem. Recorded entirely on the road: Live on stage. On tour buses. Backstage. And in hotel rooms. A classic.

7:00 p.m.   Steely Dan Live at The Woodlands Pavillion, Houston, Texas  NEW!

Our brand new musical offering comes from a great band. I almost believed the people who said they sucked in concert because they couldn’t reproduce their sound. Then, I went to see them for myself. I have to tell you, I had a great time every time. Sounded just fine to me. Enjoy this one from 1993.

You simply must get on the bandwagon, so to speak, and tune us in:

The Lovin’ Spoonful, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and It’s An Album Two-Fer on Sunday, May 3, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Sunday Funday, and we’ve got not one — but two — albums on tap rather unexpectedly today!

The Lovin Spoonful-3

Here’s today’s line-up:

10:00 a.m.   NOT The Album of the Week: You’re Gonna Get It by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (1978)   NEW!

I discovered quite by chance yesterday that this album was released 42 years ago, on May 2, 1978. It is just the second studio album by The Heartbreakers, and resulted in two massive hits in Listen To Her Heart and I Need to Know. We thought it would be a great idea to slip this one in today!

1:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Lovin’ Spoonful

One of the great bands from that Echoes in the Canyon era of days gone by.

5:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Running On Empty by Jackson Browne (1977)  NEW!

In my humble opinion, this is not only one of Jackson Browne’s best albums, but one of the best of all time. I wore this thing out. Running on Empty was released in 1977, peaked on the Billboard charts at #3 in 1978, and stayed there for 65 weeks.  The theme was life on the road, and was recorded live on stage, backstage, on tour buses, or in hotel rooms.

8:00 p.m.    We Shall Overcome: Bruce Springsteen’s Pete Seeger Sessions

This collection of traditional folk songs arranged by Springsteen was released in 2006. Springsteen called on a group of lesser-known musicians from New York and New Jersey to put together this album. It also resulted in a 62-city tour.

No commercials. No fees. No credit card required. No politicians. No bullshit. That’s us.
