Pull up a stool and set a spell.

amy-winehouse-live-at-porchester-hall

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Amy Winehouse: Live at Porchester Hall (2007)

Yet another amazingly talented singer whose life was taken far too soon.

Charles T. Wilbury, Jr. Channels Tom Petty; Badfinger in the Spotlight; and Those Echoes, Monday, October 14, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! The Petty Party continues as Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr., channels his mate, Tom Petty.

Petty & Jakob Dylan

Here’s your line-up for Indigenous People’s Day (fuck Christopher Columbus, the genocidal maniac):

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Badfinger

The one, true, bona fide rock act signed by the Beatles to Apple Records. This is an underrated, underplayed monster of a band.

2:00 p.m.        Echoes From the Canyon

The play list celebrating the pioneers of the California sound. Features The Mamas & The Papas, The Byrds, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, The Beach Boys, and many others.

6:00 p.m.        Tom Petty: Subdued and Underappreciated

In my humble opinion, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers were the finest rock n’rollers of their generation. But that isn’t all they were, especially due to the songwriting talent of Tom Petty. This hefty playlist features a quieter, gentler, more introspective Petty, one that is often underappreciated by the masses. Take a pill and chill. Features songs from the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, the Traveling Wilburys, and from Tom’s solo career.

Open streaming all night long after!

We’re Back Tomorrow With ‘Ladies Only’

Good Morning, Ungovernables! One more day of open stream while we continue to upload some new files and eliminate others. We’re back with new programming on Friday when it will be Ladies Only day!

photovisi-Ladies Only

Don’t get your underwear in a twist, gentlemen. You dominate the airwaves like everything else. Even Sirius XM hasn’t put together a woman’s station yet, and there are plenty of female singers out there, and plenty whose talent has paved the way for today’s crop of talentless waifs who all sound the same. In fact, if there were a woman’s station today, I am convinced it would not include these pioneers.

Enjoy today’s open stream at http://www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio

Programming for Friday, August 23, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Friday, and a special Friday, at that: It’s All-Girl Friday here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. When I decided to do this, one of my intentions was to right the wrongs done to many women pioneers in rock music who still can’t get air time even after all these years in the business.

ronstadt-raitt-mudaur

I’m talking about women like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, and others who should hold a place of prominence on what are known as Classic Rock stations (and that includes Sirius). We want to right that ship here. This is their day.

 

10:00 a.m.   Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks, August 30, 1983

The irrepressible Joni Mitchell turns in a fine performance here.

1:00 p.m.    Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train

In a wide-ranging discussion held at the Massachusetts School of Law, Dean Lawrence R. Velvel interviews American Historian Howard Zinn about a variety of topics, including Zinn’s take on what true Patriotism is, his view on terrorism, and what they don’t want to hear about the myth of American Exceptionalism.

3:00 p.m.    The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1

7:00 p.m.    The All-Girl Revue, Volume 2

Programming for Thursday, July 25, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Running a bit late this morning, but still within the right time frame since none of this actually starts until 10 a.m. EST!

10:00 a.m.   Joni Mitchell “Live” at Carnegie Hall 2/23/72

Joni Mitchell is a brilliant singer-songwriter often known for being “difficult” to work with. I’ve been to several of her shows, and she isn’t always pleasant to the audience either. This performance at Carnegie Hall is not that Joni Mitchell. It’s as brilliant as she is.

1:00 p.m.    Abby Martin Interviews Bill Binney

Abby Martin talks to Bill Binney, NSA Whistleblower, who gives us the lowdown on what the NSA is up to. And they’re up to no good, as usual.

4:00 p.m.    Under the Influence

Hey, we’ve pretty much all been here…maybe a little too much Mezcal (who got the worm?), add a little weed and some ‘shrooms, and we’re good. This has always been a hot topic in the music industry, and this playlist proves it!

7:00 p.m.    An Interview With Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Although Roberts is a Republican, he’s “gets” it. He’s one of my go-to guys who simply has a clear perspective of our current situation. Here he talks about the enslavement of the American worker.
