Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks, The Dead Live in OK City, and Farewell to “Surrealistic Pillow” on Saturday, June 20, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a fine music day today, not too little programming and not too much to hinder the flow of 23,000+ songs on a continual 24/7 cycle.

Here’s today’s musical landscape:

11:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane

The Airplane approaches its final landing for this cycle. On Sunday, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week, so enjoy Surrealistic Pillow while you can!

6:00 p.m.     Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Colorado (1983)

I have seen Joni Mitchell in concert more than once, most notably during her Court & Spark Tour when she traveled with Tom Scott & The L.A. Express. I have never considered her a ‘warm’ person; she sometimes had attitude with her adoring crowd. I feel the same way about Van Morrison, having seen him more than once also. But brilliant? Absolutely no question. Some days they took themselves too seriously, but their  music? That should be taken very seriously.

10:00 p.m.   Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Zoo Amphitheater, Oklahoma City, OK, September 25, 1985   NEW!

The world’s most famous jam band. The ultimate road band. They’re back for another spin with Live Dead. This week, coming to you from Oklahoma Put on your tie dye and light up a fatty. It’s a fucking Grateful Dead concert.

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Perfect for today. (And actually, every day.)

Here’s your line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, MA

The year was 1968, and Club 47 was the place. We remember Linda Ronstadt playing there and getting roast beef sandwiches at Elsie’s in Harvard Square. Others also launched their careers there, like Bonnie Raitt. This turn was for Joni.

4:00 p.m.    Wilbury Wednesday! The Traveling Wilburys are in The Spotlight

George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Roy Orbison. Five friends who simply loved making music together and having fun. It shows.

7:00 p.m.    One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club   NEW!

Sam Cooke. Sometimes his name doesn’t flow off the lips when you talk about soul music. It should. He’s the man who invented soul.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Music is my great release in a time of stress, and I’m grateful to have #BecomeUngovernable Radio. You should give it a shot and tune us in. We’re rockin’ out with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Crank it up.

Petty on stage-another great fucking photo

Here’s today’s programming!

2:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology, Parts 1 & 2

Canada has given us some brilliant musicians, Joni Mitchell being one of them. Court & Spark was Mitchell’s sixth studio album and it was released on New Year’s Day, 1974.

Chicago “Live” at Tanglewood and Joni Mitchell “Live” in Cambridge For a New England Feel, and We Feature Two Albums Today, Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Most of the time the way I choose stuff is serendipity. So it was this morning when I made these selections. I just realized both live performances were in Massachusetts, my home state.

Chicago-resize

Here’s Tuesday’s line-up:

Chicago Live at Tanglewood, Lenox, MA (1970)  NEW!

Undoubtedly, one of my favorite bands. That is, when Chicago was Terry Kath’s band, that breezy, innovative jazzy rock band. By the way, Terry Kath was a monster on that guitar. I’m not a fan of the Peter Cetera Chicago of the born-again elevator music rock genre. But this iteration of Chicago? Wow. They were awesome.

2:00 p.m.      Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon

This album was released on this day in 1973, and proceeded to spend 741 weeks on the Billboard charts before falling off in 1988. In 1998, it was certified 15-times platinum, which means it sold 15 million copies. Although this was just our Album of the Week in January, we feel the need to pay it the respect it deserves on this anniversary.

5:00 p.m.      Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, MA

Joni Mitchell wasn’t the only one to play here early on. Both Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt did also. By the time I was old enough to visit, it was called Passim’s. It was on a cold, snowy night that my friends and I went in for a drink and discovered Guy Clark. A great venue.

9:00 p.m.      Album of the Week: Blind Faith, by Blind Faith

The only album Blind Faith ever made is our actual Album of the Week this week.

Feed your ungovernable side. Tune us in.

The All-Girl Revue, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ in San Jose, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and Band On The Run, Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Does it get any better than this? Of course, it can. This is #BecomeUngovernable Radio where everything we do every day is done without giving one thought to the system.

Springsteens Seeger Sessions-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Paul McCartney & Wings, Band On The Run

The problem with being a Beatle is that — as a solo artist — you are always measured by the band’s standards. When it’s one of you, those are eight tough shoes to fill. This album was, without a doubt, outstanding. And given the various calamities that took place during the recording of this album, it’s a miracle it was. You can read about it here.

2:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3

Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris, Melanie, and Dolly Parton grace this particular volume.

5:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones, One From the Vault: San Jose, 1999

Mick and the boys tear it up.

9:00 p.m.      Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions

This shit is just unbelievable. Springsteen pays appropriate homage to folk god Pete Seeger.

Before, in between, at the end…in fact, 24/7: We are open all day and night with the best music on the damned planet. See for yourself.
