Good Morning, Ungovernables! Another day in retail paradise for me, and another in musical paradise for you!
Here’s your Friday line-up:
11:00 a.m. James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Royal Albert Hall, October 28, 1970
They were a thing then. And they were great together, at least musically.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Horla FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of this week’s episode of The Inner Sanctum is upon us once again. On Monday, there will be a brand new episode.
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo NEW!
We talk about Lennon-McCartney, John-Taupin, and it’s time we include Petty-Campbell on that list. More than just best friends. More than just great guitar players in a great fucking band. They were also wrote some great songs together.
Tune us in, chickens. It’ll be the best thing you do all week.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! If you read the CD cover, The Blue Stingrays were the most famous surf band in history. Their legend is all spelled out. We introduce them to you today.
Here’s your Saturday line up!
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles
The final airing of our Album of the Week, On The Border. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a brand new album!
5:00 p.m. #SurfMusic is Back! Introducing the Blue Stingrays! NEW!
When you look at the album cover, Surf N’Burn looks like a classic surf band album. In reality, it’s a 1997 release from The Heartbreakers without Mr. Petty. There is plenty of genuine surf guitar reverb here, masterfully played by one of the giants of guitar, Mike Campbell. He does Dick Dale (whom we will also be hearing soon) proud.
The give-away for me was the instrumental Goldfinger, which appeared on Surf N’Burn, a tune that the Heartbreakers played many times during their live shows in the 90s.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Foxboro Stadium, Foxboro, MA, July 14, 1990 NEW!
The Dead visit the Boston area and play Foxboro (not fucking Gillette) Stadium, before all the corporate entities started buying up the names.
Tune us in. We’re outside the system and we’re free. Forever.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday in fucking paradise! It’s looking dreary here, but the music is outstanding!
Here’s your Monday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Lucinda Williams Live at the Fillmore!
Lucinda Williams always said she’d rather play multiple nights at the Fillmore than play in an arena. She was definitely at her best in this venue.

Duane Allman, Mike Campbell, Jimmy Page, John Fogerty, Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Andrew Gold, and Bonnie Raitt, among others…
