Programming for Friday, August 23, 2019

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.
