11:00 a.m.   Tom Petty: Deep Cuts and B-Sides

Here’s a chance to dig deep into the Tom Petty library and pull out songs you probably do not hear much on your local station. Most bands would kill for The Hearbreakers B-sides.

3:00 p.m.     Across the Borderline: Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers

A musical chronicle of Bob Dylan’s 1986 tour with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers live from Sydney, Australia.

Programming for Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a historic performance starting our programming day off at 10:00 a.m. EST!

 

the Last Waltz-2

10:00 a.m.    The Band: The Last Waltz

If someone were to ask me the greatest American band next to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, it wouldn’t be The Eagles. It would be these guys. They had a career that spanned decades and hundreds of songs in their own right, after starting their career as Bob Dylan’s back-up band. The Last Waltz was a fitting farewell for The Band, with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, and Van Morrison taking part. Here’s the music. We’ll be live streaming the movie in the next few weeks.

3:00 p.m.    Terry Gannon, Ph.D.: Presentation on Climate at the Independent Institute on December 6, 2017

Is it real? Or isn’t it? Terry L. Gannon received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and device physics from the University of California at Santa Barbara. In climate science, Dr. Gannon’s technical background in semiconductor science (quantum mechanics, optical phenomena, multi-variable non-linear systems and computer modelling) has enabled him to examine climate change theories comprehensively.

5:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers: Deep Cuts, and Lesser Knowns

Tom Petty’s B-sides are pretty much as good as his hits, whether he’s with the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, The Traveling Wilbury’s or solo. Enjoy this one.

7:30 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Study for Murder

8:00 p.m.     Abby Martin with Peter Joseph: Abolishing Capitalism

Programming for Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Good morning, Ungovernables! Working the early shift, so I wanted to get this posted. We are up and running every day at 6 a.m.

Neil Young Performs Live At Wembley Stadium

10:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young

One of a rare breed, like Tom Petty, who has remained true to himself through a long, winding, and glorious career. A prolific singer/songwriter.

1:00 p.m.    Alison Weir: The Global Campaign to Stifle Criticism of Israel

Alison Weir, founder of the If Americans Knew Blog, breaks down this insidious global effort to stifle free speech and criticism of the state of Israel.

4:00 p.m.    Mudcrutch Madness

If you don’t know the band Tom Petty left Gainesville with back in the day, you might want to get to know them. Bringing them back together in 2009 was one of the best ideas Tom Petty ever had.

7:00 p.m.    Chris Hedges: A Radical Green Party Strategy

Although somewhat dated, this is a valuable look back. What if the Greens had adopted this strategy instead of pursuing the path they did? It’s a pretty safe bet that they are not in a position to win any time soon on the national stage. Perhaps if they’d listented, things might be different for all of us today.

 

Programming for Friday, July 12, 2019

poster-assange-manning-A2

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today is the 12th anniversary of the actual Collateral Murder event. In honor of our two political prisoners, we will be dedicating all of our “talk” programming today to interviews about or with Julian Assange.

Here’s our special programming for today:

10:00 a.m.    Mudcrutch Madness

For those of you who do not know who or what Mudcrutch is, this is the band that Tom Petty left Gainesville, Florida with on his quest to make the best fucking music on the planet. Mudcrutch didn’t have much success out there…until it morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Petty brought Mudcrutch back together in 2009, and the result was quite different.

1:00 p.m.     Chris Hedges Interviews Kristinn Hrafnsson, Editor-in-Chief of WikiLeaks

The politically-motivated imprisonment of Julian Assange and continued persecution of Chelsea Manning are issues of prime importance to us. This is an excellent and timely interview.

4:00 p.m.     The All-Girl Revue

From Linda Ronstadt, to Patti Smith, to Aretha Franklin. It’s an all-girl party! We also throw in some Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, and Irma Thomas. Hey, but who’s name dropping?

7:00 p.m.     Crucifying Julian Assange

Chris Hedges and John Pilger on Assanges’ political imprisonment and what he faces down the road.
