The Trio Sessions, The Heatbreakers Live @ Fenway & Our House Play List Dominate Monday, January 6, 2020

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

“Western Wall,” Steely Dan in the Spotlight, Hendrix & Stills “In Sessions,” and Dusty in London, Friday, December 20, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Back to a full slate of four programs today (with plenty of open stream in between 24/7), and an inspirational decision to play “Western Wall.”

Linda & Emmylou

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Western Wall, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris

I hate television, and I don’t watch it anymore. I knew Linda Ronstadt, one of my all-time favorite singers, was being honored by the Kennedy Center. So, I went looking for videos out there and I found them. None, however, were as moving as the tribute that Emmylou Harris paid to her friend and frequent collaborator.

It is in that spirit that we feature Western Wall, a beautiful collaboration between these two women. For me, the most striking thing about the album is the song selection and the composers featured. The set list is up already, and the composers of the songs appear there (please scroll to the bottom of the page).

Western Wall will, for absolute certain, do a stint as our Album of the Week. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feature it today!

2:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

5:00 p.m.      Jimi Hendrix & Stephen Stills: “In Sessions” (1968)

9:00 p.m.      Dusty in London, Dusty Springfield and the Lost British Recordings

Don’t miss it!

The breakout album that put Ronstadt on the map for just about everyone. The rest is history.

The year was 1965, and everyone was listening to James Brown, The Miracles, Marvin Gaye, Booker T. & The MGs, The Four Tops, The Supremes, and Wicked Wilson Pickett!

9:00 p.m.     Wanted! The Outlaws!

The bona fide outlaws of country music; definitely not the bad pop bands with fiddles Tom Petty talks about. Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Willie Nelson and Tompal Glaser.

Don’t miss this one, Ungovernables!
