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! Here we are ramping up for another fine day of programming before tomorrow’s Open Stream Day.
Here’s your Thursday line-up!
12:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band & Eric Clapton, Live at the Beacon (2009)
Imagine you’re at the Beacon Theater watching the Allman Brothers play…and Eric Clapton joins them on stage. Are you kidding me?
4:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live on Boston Common, July 22, 1983 NEW!
By the eighties, Linda Ronstadt knew there was ‘something wrong’ with her voice, but none of us in the audience even noticed. Another great performance by the most accomplished, versatile, talented female singer of all time.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers, Solo
Last week we featured Willie’s boy. This week, Bob’s boy. He’s no slouch either.
10:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Elite Hotel by Emmylou Harris
If you want to find out what you’re missing, you’re going to have to tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got all new material to day, and you’re going to love it. Trust me. (Don’t I sound like a politician when I say that?)
Here’s today’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. Johnny Rivers Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go
When I was young, everyone who was anyone in music played the Whiskey and the Troubadour, and that included Johnny Rivers.
2:00 p.m. Strike Watch with Adam Rice
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers
Jakob Dylan (yes, Bob’s boy) with and without his Wallflower mates.
9:00 p.m. Deb’s IPod: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Most Memorable Live Performances
Today, we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Live Anthology, so it’s only fitting that I get to choose my most memorable live Heartbreaker performances.
11:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Paul Simon’s Graceland
Our final airing of Graceland. We will choose a new album on Sunday!
Tune in. You won’t regret it. I promise.
Don’t be surprised if you start to hear music from Townes Van Zandt, Dave Van Ronk, Tim Buckley, and Jakob Dylan in the next few weeks. It’s part of a new folk music infusion at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
They’ll be joining Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan in the rotation now. We’ll be adding to this growing list in the future and will keep you updated as we grow!
