Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday, but it’s a holiday Monday…as much as it can be in such times. But one thing never changes here. The music’s always great!
Here’s your line-up for Memorial Day:
12:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Hunter From Beyond NEW!
We open the week with our Fourth Episode of The Inner Sanctum. We hope you enjoy it. Bwaaahahahahaha!
3:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: The Best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live NEW!
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers were road warriors. I’ve always said you really cannot appreciate this band fully until you’ve at least heard them live (seeing them is what you’d imagine a ‘religious experience’ to be). This collection of songs represent my personal live favorites from one of our official house bands. (The Beatles are the other.)
6:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt & Friends
Like Tom Petty’s untimely death, Linda Ronstadt’s inability to sing is a rough one for me. I imagine she’d still be making pretty great music. What we have, however, is an amazing musical journey with a singer who could — quite literally — sing anything. We’re going to have some fun with Linda Ronstadt over this summer.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are here on #SurfMusic Debut Day, kicking off at noon (Eastern). Later, we have a new Live Dead. Is Barton Hall their best concert ever?
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Instrumental Surf Anthology, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
Surf Music was a pretty big thing during the sixties, peaking in popularity between 1962 and 1964. It originally began as instrumental music, with Dick Dale being the most iconic of the instrumental genre. Then the Beach Boys came along and brought the vocal genre to the mix. Here we start off with about an hour of the instrumental genre.
5:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy
The final airing of our Album of the Week (sadly). Tomorrow when you rush to the blog, there’ll be a new album!
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Barton Hall, Cornell University NEW!
Is this the absolute best live performance ever turned in by The Grateful Dead? There are many Deadheads who believe it is. See for yourself.
Tune us in, people. Time’s a wastin’
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is our fifth day of bright sunshine this week! What the hell is going on? I’ll tell you what. Great music going on here.
Here’s your line-up for Thursday:
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy
Learn more about this beautiful album by clicking on the photo in the sidebar of this blog.
3:00 p.m. Skydog: The Legend of Duane Allman NEW!
Duane Allman was the leader of the greatest Southern rock band on the planet, but he was also a most wanted man on guitar. He played guitar for many, including Boz Scaggs, Laura Nyro, Derek & The Dominos, Clarence Carter, Wilson Pickett, and many others.
7:00 p.m. Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino: Various Artists
Here we have another legend and rock n’roll pioneer. A New Orleans native, Antoine “Fats” Domino sold 65 million records during his career. Between 1955 and 1960, Fats had eleven top ten hits. He was quiet and humble, avoiding the limelight. This, no doubt, contributed to the fact that he is often overlooked.
Tune us in. You’ll hear stuff you aren’t going to hear anywhere else. I promise.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a special Tuesday Bluesday treat today, nearly four hours of highlights from Eric Clapton and his friends at the Crossroads Guitar Festivals.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
9:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy
This is an amazing album, and the perfect way to enjoy your morning coffee. I know I will.
12:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: The Stone Poney & Early Years NEW!
This playlist encompasses the very early years of Linda Ronstadt, even before Don’t Cry Now, which came one year before that breakthrough album known as Heart Like A Wheel.
4:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday with Eric Clapton & Friends: Highlights From The Crossroads Guitar Festivals
Join Eric Clapton with blues guitarists like Buddy Guy, Warren Haynes, Butch Trucks, and others who have graced the stage of his Crossroads Guitar Festivals over the years.
You really should tune us in. We’ll help you get through your day.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have a brand new Album of the Week, and it’s our Sixties Rotation Sunday!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
10:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy NEW!
Nobody can ever accuse Linda Ronstadt of resting on her laurels. She was always in pursuit of the next musical adventure. The absolute best thing about Ronstadt — at least for her true fans — was that she refused to have her music defined by anybody. To put it bluntly, she sang because she loved singing.
This album was released on July 25, 2006. It would be Ronstadt’s last studio album before her retirement in 2011, and her revelation about having Parkinson’s Disease. Her musical partner is the amazing Ann Savoy, a Cajun music singer with a band called The Magolia Sisters. Ronstadt is technically a soprano; Savoy an alto. They had made duets before for a Cajun tribute album. Here, they unite as The Zozo Sisters, and the result is stunning.
Absolute Fact: Linda Ronstadt’s ultimate desire was to be part of an all-girl band. Those were the kinds of projects she sought out for herself.
2:00 p.m. The Sixties on Sunday!
We’re back with five hours of musical programming that defined a generation. From The Beatles, to The Kinks, to Barry McGuire, Lulu, Del Shannon, and Bob Dylan. It’s all here!
So, it’s Sunday. A day of rest. What are you going to do about that?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some great music lined up for your Friday, no matter what you’re up to.
Here’s your Friday line-up!
12:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years
We’re moving onto those crucial middle years with a brand new playlist on Saturday, Seems to me this would be a good time to give a listen to their early work.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning FINAL AIRING THIS WEEK!
This is the final airing if Episide 2. We will have a brand new episode on Monday.
6:00 p.m. Rock, Blues & Ballads, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
We’ve greatly expanded this playlist since its last airing! Hear J.J. Cale, Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Gregg Allman, Steve Winwood, Maria Muldaur, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, and more!
Tune us in, people! Time waits for noone!
Good Morning, Ungovernables. Today we have an amazing ‘new’ music offering in the Trio Sessions with Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton.
Here’s your Friday line-up!
1:00 p.m. The Trio Sessions With Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton NEW!
I guess Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce qualified as a supergroup when they formed Cream. Why these three ladies are not technically considered one is well beyond my understanding, but they certainly are here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
We have featured the Trio albums in the past, but these are the Trio Sessions, with remasters, alternate versions and previously unreleased material. If you’ve never heard angels sing before, you are about to.
By the way, you can see the entire playlist in our Playlist section. Just scroll to the bottom of the page!
6:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Black Sea Gull (Replay)
Tune us in. Next week, we will air a new episode.
Do yourself a favor and tune us in. We’re dead serious about music.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s an all-girls day here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, and we’ve got some great stuff scattered in among our stream.
Here’s your line-up:
12:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too
Featuring Linda Ronstadt, Joan Baez, Etta James, Bobbie Gentry, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, and more!
4:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt Live at The Rainbow Room, Sigma Sound Studios NEW!
Bonnie Raitt’s performance at The Rainbow Room of Sigma Sound on February 22, 1972, as broadcast over WMMR in Philly.
7:00 p.m. Shawn Colvin Live on Tour 2009
Today we feature a live performance by Shawn Colvin from her 2009 concert tour.
Tune us in, people. You don’t know what you’re missing until you do.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are ramping up for another fine day of programming before tomorrow’s Open Stream Day.
Here’s your Thursday line-up!
12:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band & Eric Clapton, Live at the Beacon (2009)
Imagine you’re at the Beacon Theater watching the Allman Brothers play…and Eric Clapton joins them on stage. Are you kidding me?
4:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live on Boston Common, July 22, 1983 NEW!
By the eighties, Linda Ronstadt knew there was ‘something wrong’ with her voice, but none of us in the audience even noticed. Another great performance by the most accomplished, versatile, talented female singer of all time.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers, Solo
Last week we featured Willie’s boy. This week, Bob’s boy. He’s no slouch either.
10:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Elite Hotel by Emmylou Harris
If you want to find out what you’re missing, you’re going to have to tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re getting off to an early posting start because we’re getting off to a 10:00 a.m. musical start!
Here’s today’s incredible line-up:
10:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones
This is not only one of my favorite all-time albums, but the song Gimme’ Shelter is one of my all-time favorite songs. That inerlude by Merry Clayton is amazing.
1:00 p.m. Van Morrison: Live From Montreux, Switzerland NEW!
Van Morrison was built to last. He began his career in 1964 with the British blues band Them. They were billed as part of the British Invasion, and their most famous hit is Gloria, but I also remember them for Baby Please Don’t Go. For Van Morrison and his fans (and I am one), the rest is history.
5:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: Live at Rockpalast, Germany
Speaking of built to last. I have no doubt that Linda Ronstadt would still be musically contributing in some way had she not been robbed of her lifeblood by Parkinsons. What we do have is an amazing body of work that crosses all kinds of genres and defied the naysayers who said, “You can’t sing that. You’ll ruin your career.” She did. And it didn’t.
8:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Band
Yeah. And then, there’s these guys. This is the perfect way to close out today.
