Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got something for everybody today from The Mermaid Lounge, highlighted by the Monterey International Pop Festival!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Foo Fighters
The Foos started as Dave Grohl’s one-man project after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of Nirvana. The rest, as they say, is legend.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye NEW!
Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Marvin Gaye helped shape the Motown sound, earning himself a string of hits along with the title, The Prince of Motown. Today, we give him his due.
7:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! The Monterey International Pop Festival NEW!
Before Woodstock in 1969, there was the Monterey International Pop Festival held at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in California from June 16-18, 1967. The Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Johnny Rivers, Simon & Garfunkel, The Grateful Dead, The Mamas & The Papas and many others all graced the stage. It also marked the introduction of Otis Redding to the world.
Yeah, baby. This is a great music day to figure out what we’re all about. Join us. We’re free. Always. We’re about as outside the system as you can get. We’re perfect for you.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re cooking now as we make our way to the end of Tom Petty month. We’ll go out with a bang with some new music, starting today!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt: Live in Hollywood (1980)
The only actual Ronstadt-approved live album ever released, and it didn’t happen until 2019. It was well worth the wait.
2:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Under the Covers (New!)
The Heartbreakers have to be the best cover band alive. Here’s some more stuff they didn’t write, but still made their own.
5:00 p.m. The Grateful Dead: Dick’s Picks, Volume 32
9:00 p.m. The Monterey International Pop Festival
Before Woodstock, there was Monterey with Otis Redding, The Byrds, the Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, and more!
This isn’t rocket science, this is music!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here is your special programming for today. In between all this is some of the greatest music of all time. Tune in!
10:00 a.m. The Monterey International Pop Festival
Woodstock’s anniversary is coming up, but the Monterey International Pop Festival already cenetrated it’s 50th back in 2017. In the photo we have two attendees who left us way too soon, Brian Jones of the Stones and Jimi Hendrix.
1:00 p.m. William Blum on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
William Blum, who passed in 2018, was and is an important voice in this movement. He left the employ of the state department in 1967, and spent his life taking on Empire. Here he blows the whistle on the CIA.
4:00 p.m. Petty Theft: The Covers
The same qualities that make Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers the greatest American rock n’ roll band of all time make them the greatest cover band of all time. This is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite playlists. Sit back and enjoy the Heartbreakers as they pay homage to those who have inspired them over the years.
7:00 p.m. Chris Hedges: The Wages of Rebellion
Chris Hedges gets some airtime from us once again so he can tell you the moral imperative of rising up.
