Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s today’s scheduled programming at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. In between, we’ve got some of the best damned music on the planet.

4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Warren Zevon
Yet another brilliant singer-songwriter gone way too soon, Warren Zevon was no ordinary guy. He lived life on his own terms, made some of the most incredible vehicles for Linda Ronsadt’s voice, released one of the music world’s best albums ever in Excitable Boy, and died with dignity.
7:00 p.m. William Blum: The CIA is a Terrorist Organization

10:00 a.m. George Harrison & Friends: The Concert for Bangladesh
“Cause” concerts are old hat now, but when George Harrison and quite a few of his friends took the stage on December 20, 1971, it was a first. This is where it all began.
1:00 p.m. Chris Hedges: America, The Farewell Tour
Chris Hedges talks about his most recent book, how and why we came to be in this sorry state, and the eventual fall of Empire. I saw this tour when his book was first published. It is quite sobering.
4:00 p.m. Heart of Mine: Maria Muldaur Sings the Love Songs of Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan didn’t just write protest songs, and Maria Muldaur is one of that great class of women who graced the airwaves during the 70s along with Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, they frequently visited each other’s albums!

Chris Hedges talks to Medea Benjamin about the very real and dangerous potential for war with Iran.
10:00 p.m. Dylan & The Dead

2:30 p.m. Chris Hedges on America’s Sacrifice Zones
Listen as Chris Hedges talks about communities destroyed by mankind and left to die on the vine. Flint, Michigan, is but one such sacrifice zone.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers deliver a kick-ass performance in Chicago in 2003. It’s one for the books, folks.
7:00 p.m. Howard Zinn: The Hidden History of the American Working Class
The common man and woman lost a strong, vibrant voice when Howard Zinn passed away in 2010. But what he has taught us lives on.
