Good Morning, Ungovernables and Hippie Freaks! It’s Tuesday, and we’ve got a fantastic bit of programming for you today. It’s hotter than Hades here in the Boston area. Good day to stay in and enjoy.
Here’s today’s musical smogasbord:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Johnny Winter and Dr. John Live in Sweden (1987)
Two of my favorite bluesmen, live in one place at the same time. Love this shit.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Literally, one of the most bombastic debuts in rock music history. With one album, Jimi Hendrix went from struggling artist to gamechanger. His unique style would change the world of psychedelic rock forever.
7:00 p.m. The Best of the Summer of Love, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
The music released during 1967 was, literally, a cultural smorgasbord. It was musical nirvana from Haight-Ashbury all the way to my little street in Medford, where my friends and I lay in the driveway that summer with a transistor listening to WMEX. Back in the day, AM was king.
Tune us in, people. You will not regret it. It will take ONE singular visit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Tuesday Bluesday here, and we’ve got new Johnny Winter to fit the bill.
Here’s your Tuesday line-up:
1:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Souvenirs, by Dan Fogelberg
4:00 p.m. Van Morrison: Live at the Capitol Theater, LA, October 6, 1979
7:00 p.m. Our Tuesday Bluesday Selection: Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978 NEW!
Johnny Winter’s entire life was dedicated to the blues. Although sometimes forgotten, his string of monster albums in the late sixties and early seventies established Winter as one of the most important figures in the blues genre.
Tune in. We’d love your company.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are ending the first month of a new decade with a bang, not a whimper!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We took a little break from the Heartbreakers after #Rocktober, but they’re back with what is considered to be one of their best live performances ever.
Here’s your scheduled programming for today:
11:00 a.m. Selections From The Concert for George
One year after we lost George Harrison, his family and friends got together to pay him tribute. Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison, Eric Clapton and a host of others put on an astounding show.
2:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Graceland, by Paul Simon
5:00 p.m. Johnny Winter & Dr. John Live in Sweden (1987)

It’s sure to be the winter of our discontent. Sit a spell. Listen to some tunes.
Take the edge off.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today would have been Guy Clark’s 77th birthday, and we’re doing the bookend thing to celebrate his extraordinary talent. If you don’t know Guy Clark, you should make it a point to get to know him.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Guy Clark, Steve Earle, and Townes Van Zandt: Live at the Bluebird Cafe
2:00 p.m. The Band: Music From Big Pink
This is the stuff that legends are made of. In this case, that is certainly true as The Band is one of the finest musical ensembles ever.
5:00 p.m. Johnny Winter: Live at Hondarribia (2011)
The real deal bluesman here.
9:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Guy Clark
This is another one of those guys whose passing leaves a hole, like Tom Petty and John Lennon, that just cannot be filled. I found this brilliant story teller quite by mistake in the middle of a snowstorm, trying to find somewhere to get inside from the nasty weather. Maybe later tonight as I’m listening to this, I’ll tell my story.
In between, it’s just kick-ass music at www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio
