Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are on another Friday, getting ready for the weekend, and we’ve got some great music to usher in the weekend after an open stream kind of morning.
Here’s today’s line-up:
3:00 p.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live From My Father’s Place, Old Roslyn, New York, November 28, 1976 NEW!
The Flying Burrito Brothers were founded in Los Angeles in 1968 by Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman. They have undergone many personnel changes over the years, but are best remembered for their influential early work in country rock, and their debut album The Gilded Palace of Sin (1969).
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur
Maria Muldaur is a folk and blues singer, who was an influential part of the folk music revival of the 1960s. Sometimes the general public overlooks her incredible body of work, but her peers do not.
So, let’s get this show on the road. Are you doing to tune us in or what? Let’s get real, people! We are totally outside the system.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! The next few days here are big days for the ladies of rock n’ roll as we move toward the end of Women’s Week. Today’s programming is only seven hours worth, but it’s packed with great stuff.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore
Lucinda Williams hails from Louisiana and somehow you can just feel that coming through in her gritty music. Among her peers, she’s one of the most respected and influential singer-songwriters in the business. You’d never know it because — no matter how you look at it — women are still considered second-class citizens in the rock world. At least these women are. The little blonde sound-alike waifs they prop up on stage these days are no match.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris
This is one of those albums that musicians feel in their soul. It may not be a platinum seller, but that’s not why it’s being done. It’s one of the things you have the opportunity to make after you’ve paid your dues in the business. And both Ronstadt and Harris have done just that.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur NEW!
Friend of Linda, Bonnie, Kate & Anna McGarrigle and many others. Maria Muldaur has been out there since the great folk revival of the sixties. She has been gracing us with her own solo work and also singing background and harmonies with just about everyone else, including Linda Ronstadt, the Jerry Garcia Band, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and Paul Butterfield. Today she gets The Spotlight, and deservedly so.
This is — without a doubt — an excellent week to tune in #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We still have a long way to go with Women’s Week, and we have a lot of women still to air — both well known and not so well-known. Tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got that bluesy feeling today, so we made sure to include some choice selections for your auditory pleasure.
Here’s Sunday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Down in Bluesiana with Dr. John, Art Blakeley, and David “Fathead” Newman
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Heart Like A Wheel, Linda Ronstadt
Heart Like A Wheel is Linda Ronstadt’s 5th solo studio album, and is known as the album that put her on the map. It was released in November of 1974, and was the first to reach the top of the Billboard 100 and earned Ronstadt her first Grammy.
5:00 p.m. John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live at the BBC (2007)
9:00 p.m. Heart of Mine: Maria Muldaur sings the love songs of Bob Dylan
It’s Sunday. You should be chillin’ and enjoying the music at
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great line-up today from top to bottom.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Album of The Week: Graceland, by Paul Simon
This was an album of epic proportions with Paul Simon stepping out to explore a whole new genre of music. Graceland won the 1987 Grammy for Album of the Year, and has sold more than 16 million copies to date.
We are presenting the expanded album here. The first 11 songs are the way the original album was recorded. There’s a break with Paul Simon talking about the making of the album, then there are several bonus tracks that were not used.
Linda Ronstadt sings some beautiful backgrounds and harmonies on Under African Skies, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo sings background on Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes.
2:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3
5:00 p.m. Warren Zevon: Live at the Capitol Theater, Los Angeles (1980)
9:00 p.m. Maria Muldaur Sings the Love Songs of Bob Dylan
It wasn’t just about protest songs. Bob Dylan had a romantic side, and Maria Muldaur explores it in her own wonderful style.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Friday, and a special Friday, at that: It’s All-Girl Friday here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. When I decided to do this, one of my intentions was to right the wrongs done to many women pioneers in rock music who still can’t get air time even after all these years in the business.
I’m talking about women like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, and others who should hold a place of prominence on what are known as Classic Rock stations (and that includes Sirius). We want to right that ship here. This is their day.
10:00 a.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks, August 30, 1983
The irrepressible Joni Mitchell turns in a fine performance here.
1:00 p.m. Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train
In a wide-ranging discussion held at the Massachusetts School of Law, Dean Lawrence R. Velvel interviews American Historian Howard Zinn about a variety of topics, including Zinn’s take on what true Patriotism is, his view on terrorism, and what they don’t want to hear about the myth of American Exceptionalism.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It is yet another Monday, and we’re off to a full slate of special programming on this fine day!
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!
7:00 p.m. Chris Hedges and Medea Benjamin of Code Pink Talk Iran
Chris Hedges talks to Medea Benjamin about the very real and dangerous potential for war with Iran.
10:00 p.m. Dylan & The Dead
A special encore performance of this great playlist!
