The legendary tour hits Sydney, Australia.

10:30 p.m.    The Ungovernables Report, October 18, 2019

The Petty Party Continues and It’s Happy Birthday to Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Thought we’d do something a bit different today, so we’re taking a close-up look at three Tom Petty albums, two with the Heartbreakers and one solo effort, Highway Companion, one of my all-time favorite Petty albums.

Blog photo 10-3

Here’s the line up:

10:00 a.m.   Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Montreaux (1982 & 1985)

Today would have been SRV’s 65th birthday, born in the great year of 1954 (along with yours truly). This guy’s life was cut far too short. One of the greatest blues singers and guitarists ever.

1:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Highway Companion (released July 25, 2006)

Don’t bother to listen to the critics. All they ever wanted this guy to do is rock out. He’s a whole lot more than that. In fact, his bandmates never understood why he didn’t make an all-acoustic album. He apparently didn’t think he was a good enough guitar player to go there. (He may be no Mike Campbell, but he’s no slouch on that thing.) This is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest albums I’ve heard.

4:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye (released July 29, 2014)

The Heartbreakers’ thirteenth and final studio album was one of the best ever. Up until this release, I truly believed that Damn The Torpedoes, would go down in history as the band’s crowning achievement. Not so. (We will get to DTT also.)

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers’ Mojo (released July 15, 2010)

The Heartbreakers’ twelfth album was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, and was created as a blues album. If you are a music aficionado and care to explore, there’s a cool little story behind this one.

Pull up a tab. This is going to be a good one.

Two Years Ago Today We Lost Tom Petty, October 2, 2019

Tom Petty left this world two years ago today at the age of 66. For his fans, his friends, his bandmates, and his family it was all too soon. This month we celebrate all the great music he gave us, and remember how much he loved his fans.

Tom-Petty-Heartbreakers

11:00 a.m.   Abby Martin with Richard Wolff: Understanding Marxism and Socialism

2:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live: Pack Up the Plantation!

This was the Heartbreakers’ first official “live” album, released in November of 1985. It was primarily recorded at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, but several tracks were recorded earlier.

5:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

Let’s not forget that Tom Petty was also a producer and mentor to a band called The Shelters. He produced their first album, and was at work on their second with them when he passed. It has since been released, and we have updated the playlist accordingly.

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Final Interview

This is a wide-ranging interview about the future. It’s clear that Tom Petty was intending to be around for a while yet.

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.

Join Jimmy Cliff, the Maytalls and others for music from the iconic movie.
