Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re kicking off the week with a couple of great live shows and in between, we’ve got a Spotlight feature we haven’t heard for a while.
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, October 1, 1999
From The Western Wall Tour, we give you two lifelong friends blending two beautiful voices. This tour was in support of their great album, Western Wall. It is one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real
We haven’t aired this one in a while. We have, admittedly, been remiss. We also have some new “live” music from this band that we’ll be uploading and debuting in the next few weeks.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, December 31, 1978
Tom Petty and his band were riding a wave of popularity when they played Santa Monica’s infamous New Year’s Eve concert. This is a live bootleg of that great show. Enjoy.
Look, let’s face it. Mondays suck in general. But they’re always better when you can tune in some great music. We’ve got it here from The Mermaid Lounge. Free. Everyday. Not just Mondays.
Good Morning, Folks! As I return to retail hell on this fine day (and hopefully not for long), we’ve got some great programming coming up in my absence. The Music Mermaid will handle the details.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists
We’ve all done it. Some of us do it every day. Functioning under the influence, that is. This great multi-artist playlist features Glenn Frey, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Donovan. The Traveling Wilburys, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, Neil Young, The Temptations, and more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Damn The Torpedoes! by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
We’re winding down on our Album of The Week. We’ll have one more airing of this fantastic album on Saturday. When you roll your butts out of bed on Sunday, there will be a new selection. So, get in on this now! The Heartbreakers’ breakout album for sure. And the rest, as they say, is history.
7:00 p.m. Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real Live at The Boathouse, Newport News, Virginia, June 14, 2018 NEW!
This is a great little band, and you know it’s great when a legend like Neil Young takes them on the road with him. They can stand on their own, however, and this is your chance to see that for yourself.
Tune us in, people. We’re not-for-profit. We accept no advertising and we sure don’t employ long-winded DJ’s. The Music Mermaid is silent but deadly in her selections.
Good Morning, Music Lovers! How the hell are you this fine Sunday? We have a great line-up today sprinkled in all that Open Stream which, we are again expanding as we speak (or as I write).
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Joan Baez by Joan Baez NEW!
This album has great historical significance to music. In 2015, the album was placed into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress for special recognition and preservation as one of the sound recordings in over 130 years of recording history that has “cultural, artistic and/or historical significance to American society and the nation’s audio legacy” It was recorded in the summer of 1960 and released the same year. Later re-issues contained bonus tracks, but this is the original 13 songs and nothing more.
3:00 p.m. Tom Petty’s Peculiar Picks: The Best of The Buried Treasure Show NEW!
Tom Petty had a side gig. He was a DJ on The Buried Treasure Show, which debuted on Sirius XM’s Deep Tracks channel, then moved to Tom Petty Radio. Tom Petty shared not only some pretty great music (some of it buried and pretty obscure), but his knowledge about its history and how it influenced the influencers. Those of us who listen beyond the catchy tune stage consider this show a national treasure, and agree totally with the sentiment expressed in this article.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real
Yeah. He’s Willie’s boy. And he’s pretty damned good. POTR, as they are affectionately known, also has a side gig as Neil Young’s touring band. Can’t get a much better endorsement than that.
I have no clue what any of you are up to today but — whatever it is — you should have this station tuned in. After all, it’s Sunday Funday. And we’re really fun and won’t cost you a dime.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s an early morning day today, so we’re going with (mostly) Open Stream until a bit later when Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real drops by for some fun.
Here’s your Wednesday line-up!
All Day (Mostly) Open Stream
Circulating 25,000+ songs without interruption (except my golden voice for a few station I.D. breaks) right up until…
6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Affectionately known as POTR. One of the finest country rock bands you’ll find these days, and currently Neil Young’s back-up band. Lukas probably learned all of this from hanging around with his dad. He was clearly paying attention.
So, what the hell indeed are you waiting for? Perfect day to get the musical lay of the land for this little radio station…a little radio station that shows more variety with less chatter and no advertising. And best of all, we’re free. Put your credit card away. Your money is no good here.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! At the end of this day of indentured servitude to the consuming public, it will begin my weekend. We have some great programming today.
Here’s your line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Let It Bleed, The Rolling Stones FINAL AIRING!
This is the final airing of Let It Bleed. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a brand new Album of the Week.
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Yes, Willie’s boy has a hell of a country rock band here. POTR also doubles as Neil Young’s road band in their spare time.
6:00 p.m. The Beatles Rock the Rooftop!
The Beatles final public performance happened on January 30, 1969 with an unannounced concert from the rooftop of Apple Corporation headquarters at 3 Saville Row. Their fans were ecstatic with the lunchtime entertainment. The British Bobbies? Not so much.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Watkins Glen, New York (7-28-73)
We’re taking a break from Europe ’72 this week and airing a concert from Watkins Glen, New York. No two Dead performances are ever the same. They are the ultimate jam band.
Tune us in. It’s Easter weekend. The bunny’s efforts are scaled back this year. We’ll blunt the trauma with some great music.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got Wide Open Wednesday today, as we showcase the new music we’ve added to the rotation!
Some of the new acts we’ve added include Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Neville Brothers, Aaron Neville, Leon Russell, NRBQ, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Widespread Panic, and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.
We’ve also added to some artists already in the rotation, including Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney (with and without Wings, The Beatles), The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Lucinda Williams, and Tommy James & The Shondells.
Tune us in. We’re up to 21, 496 songs and counting:
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We begin another work week here in Empire, but the music remains a refuge here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Carl Perkins & Friends: Go Kat Go!
The legendary guitar man Carl Perkins has brought along some friends, like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Willie Nelson, George Harrison and more, to help him sing some of his songs. Check out the set list in the Playlist section of the blog.
2:00 p.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists
If you need to take the edge off, this is the playlist. Some solutions are legal. Some are not. Opinions expressed in this song may or may not reflect the recommendations of management.
5:00 p.m. The Grateful Dead: Live From the Mars Hotel (1974)
9:00 p.m. Neil Young with Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Neil Young hit the road without a band and had to find one. He did in Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. Yes, they are in our standard rotation and, yes, he is Willie’s boy.
