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.
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
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
Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Mary Wells, Carla Thomas, Little Eva, and more.
8:00 p.m. Eric Clapton & Friends Live! NEW!
Eric Clapton has a few friends over, and they ain’t social distancing. He is joined by Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Joe Cocker for a great repertoire of songs. Enjoy!
It’s Sunday. A day of rest. Take advantage and tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Enjoy a light programming day and plenty of great streaming music. We’ve added about 2,800 songs over the past couple of weeks.
Here’s your only programming today:
2:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Mad Dogs & Englishment, Joe Cocker
Rolling Stone magazine panned Mad Dogs & Englishmen, and I’m glad to this day that I never listened to rock critics or I might not have bought this. Great musicians on this album, including Leon Russell (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Carl Radle (bass), and Jim Keltner (drums) Keltner would later be the drummer for another great supergroup named The Traveling Wilburys.
6:00 p.m. Strike Watch with Adam Rice
Get it while it’s hot! Our last airing of the weekend.
