Yardbirds

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! The Yardbirds: The BBC Sessions 1965-1968   NEW!

The Yardbirds are a British blues-rock band formed in London in May of 1963. The original lineup featured vocalist and harmonica player Keith Relf, drummer Jim McCarty, rhythm guitarist/bassist Chris Dreja and bassist/producer Paul Samwell-Smith. Throughout the years, other band members have come and gone.

During the BBC Sessions featured in this playlist, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page circulated in and out of the band.

4:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles

This was The Eagles third studio album, and they added Don Felder to go for a more rock feel than the first two albums.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: Booker T. & The M.G.’s

Booker T. & The M.G.’s were a musical force in the sixties. Formed in Memphis in 1962, the band was influential in shaping the unique sound of Southern soul and Memphis soul. The original band members were Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Steve Cropper (guitar), Lewie Steinberg (bass), and Al Jackson Jr. (drums). As the de facto house band for Stax Records, they also played for artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, and Delaney & Bonnie.

Tune us in for a great musical feast. We’re free. All the time.

“Wildflowers” Debuts, The Soul Queens Return & Eric Clapton Hangs With His Friends, on Sunday, April 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, we have some great new stuff for you on this day, including the debut of Tom Petty’s solo gem, Wildflowers, as our Album of the Week.

1:00 p.m.  Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers   NEW!

Wildflowers was the second solo studio album by Tom Petty, and it was released on November 1, 1994. In spite of Petty’s desire to break free of the constraints of the band, he used most of his compadres as session musicians. The album resulted in four single releases, the most successful of which was You Don’t Know How It Feels. The other three were It’s Good To Be King (my all-time favorite Petty song), You Wreck Me, and A Higher Place. Read more about the album and the contributors here

4:00 p.m.   The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists

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 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.

One overlooked aspect of Tom Petty’s illustrious career was his stint as a DJ for Sirius XM Radio. He started his Buried Treasure show on the Deep Tracks Channel, but moved it to To Petty Radio when his own channel went on the air. Prior to  his death, he did more than 400 hour-long shows that basically give you the history of rock n’ roll.

In this playlist, you’ll hear the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Bobby “Blue” Bland, LaVern Baker, Little Richard, and Wanda Jackson, among others.
