Here’s your Monday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   The Inner Sanctum: Dead Reckoning

We move on to Episode 2 of our old time radio show, The Inner Sanctum.

2:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Monday!

Today in the Spotlight, we have Mudcrutch. The band that would morph into the force that’s known as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. In reality, Mudcrutch was a force unto itself, returning under Petty in 2008 to make some brilliant music. Failing to see this band during it’s small-venue tour in 2016 is one of the great regrets of my musical life.

6:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Led Zeppelin   NEW!

We’re spending some quality time with the original headbangers tonight. Formed in London in 1968, they celebrated their 50th year in service to the musical masses in 2018. 

Where you at? Tune us in. We’re free and always will be.

The Beatles’ Early Years, Stephen Stills “Live” at the Capitol Theater, and It’s a Mudcrutch Monday, April 13, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We begin yet another week in the shitshow, but at least we’ve got the best music on the planet to help us keep our sanity.

Here is your Monday, Monday line-up:

12:00 p.m.  The Beatles: The Early Years   NEW!

Somebody argued with me over whether or not the Beatles were the best rock n’ roll band ever. I never said they were. I said they were the best damned band ever. They were never limited by genre. They changed everything. In this playlist, we focus on their early years. 

4:00 p.m.    It’s Mudcrutch Monday!

Yes, it’s Mudcrutch Monday, and we’re airing our Mudcrutch Madness playlist for you.

7:00 p.m.    Stephen Stills: Live at the Capitol Theater (1979)

Buffalo Springfield. Crosby, Stills, Nash (& Sometimes Young). Manassas. The Stills-Young Band. Solo. Stephen Stills’ contribution cannot be denied.

Tune. Us. In.  www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio

 

It’s Mudcrutch Monday & New “Live” Music From Steve Winwood, March 16, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! How are we? Getting ready for the big shut down? You’d better tune us in. We’ll be going here 24/7 with non-stop music. Today, it’s a Mudcrutch Monday.

Mudcrutch-Blurt-John-Boydston-Tabernacle-2016-4

Here’s today’s line-up:

2:00 p.m.    Steve Winwood Live at The Estival Jazz Festival, Lugano NEW!

The veteran of the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and his own successful solo career live at The Estival Jazz Festival.

5:00 p.m.    Mudcrutch Madness!

The band that would eventually morph into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is another great story in an already legendary musical career. Formed in 1970 by teens in Gainesville, Florida (including Petty), they would morph into the Heartbreakers, and the rest is history. But Tom Petty would bring them back in 2009, and they blew the doors off venues during their 2016 tour.

Dylan at Budokan, The “Let It Be” Sessions, Mudcrutch Madness & Van Morrison in the Spotlight, Friday, February 21, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a fine day of programming here at The Mermaid Lounge, home of #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

59994159c5140b66aec22906195048f8

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Bob Dylan Live at Budokan (1979)

2:00 p.m.       The Beatles’ Let It Be Sessions: Rare and Unreleased

By the time Let It Be rolled around, the good times were few and far between for The Beatles. Still, some of the old magic was there during the sessions, as you can see from today’s photo. We have about 30 session minutes in this set, followed by Let It Be…Naked, the non-Phil Spector version of Let It Be.

5:00 p.m.       Mudcrutch Madness!

There are those who will say that Mudcrutch doesn’t look a thing like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, but I’ll argue that point. Mudcrutch looks exactly like TPHB: A bunch of friends who enjoy playing music together and just happen to be really good at it.

In this band, the band that launched The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty is the bassist. And although he fronts the band and sings many of the songs, others contribute vocally as well. The standout here is the brilliant version of Hungry No More recorded at Boston’s House of Blues in 2016, which appeared on the posthumously-released An American Treasure box set in 2018.

9:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Van Morrison

J Geils Band Baby

Hear it all right here: The band that would become Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, then return to the scene in 2008 to make some more great music.
