The Beatles Rock the Rooftop, The Doors in Concert & Linda Ronstadt in the Spotlight, Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a bit lighter-than-usual programming today with Open Stream after our 5:00 p.m. program.

Ronstadt B & W

Here’s your Wednesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.     The Beatles Complete Apple Rooftop Concert

The impromptu concert on the top of the Apple Studios building was a lunch-time treat that drove the British Bobbies mad!

2:00 p.m.       The Doors: Live in Concert

5:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt

There has not been anybody like her since, and there may never be a voice like that again.

After Ronstadt, it’s Open Stream for the rest of the evening. You simply have to 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.

The Lovin Spoonful-3

Here is your Sunday Funday line-up:

Eat A Peach was the third studio reording by the Allman Brothers Band, and was released on February 12, 1972 on the Capricorn record label. It was also the final album that Duane Allman would appear on, as he was killed in a motorcycle accident in his hometown of Macon, Georgia.

The double album is a combination of studio and live recordings, with and without Duane Allman, and includes the band’s famed 1971 Fillmore East performances.

In Honor of My 66th Birthday, I’m Playing You 66 of My Favorite Songs; There’s Also Petty Theft and the All-Girl Revue!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, putting 66 candles on a birthday cake is a fire hazard, but playing you 66 of my favorite songs on my birthday (in no particular order) is a great substitute.

 

Here’s your line-up for February 7:

11:00 a.m.     Petty Theft: The Covers

The same principles that make Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers the greatest rock n’roll band of all time also make them the greatest cover band of all time. Give it a listen. You’ll see what I mean.

3:00 p.m.      The Big 66: Sixty-six of My Favorite Songs in No Particular Order

Yeah, putting 66 burning candles on a cake is definitely a fire hazard. But I’ll play you 66 of my favorite songs of all time as my birthday gift to you! That’s slightly over 4 hours of great music. (Did I mention that there’s actually 67 because I threw one in for good luck?)

By the way, this playlist was compiled in just under an hour and a half on total impulse by combing through about 22,000 active song files on the radio station. If I did it again, there would probably be a whole new list, but these are definitely 67 of my favorites!

9:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4

Tune us in on my birthday. It’s a party, people! And it’s totally free.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re switching it up a bit today on both content and timing. We think you’re going to like what we have today!

Linda Dolly Emmylou

11:00 a.m.     Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton: The Trio Sessions

This is a bona fide all-girl supergroup. Like the Traveling Wilburys, it was easy to make  music together (beyond their sheer talent) because they enjoyed each others’ company. The Trio Sessions give you the background: Alternative takes, some unreleased tunes, and plenty of great insight.

5:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at Fenway Park, Boston (2014)

The Hypnotic Eye tour rolls through Boston producing what is considered one of their finest live performances.

8:00 p.m.      The #BecomeUngovernable House Play List
