#BecomeUngovernable Radio Will Be Back Soon and Will Be On Open Stream!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! I just got off the phone with Citrus Radio in the UK, and the station will indeed be back online shortly. We apologize for this interruption.

When it comes back on, we will be on Open Stream for the day. Tomorrow we will return to our regular programming. We were in the process of uploading new music, so that will continue on today!

Thank you for your patience.


It’s (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday Until That Sweet Soul Sound of ’65 and the Inner Sanctum Later, Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Wednesday and, as is the routine here lately, a (mostly) open stream day! Later, we get into some sweet soul music and much later, The Tell-Tale Heart.

Here’s today’s line-up:

Perpetual   Open Stream

We really only offer programming for seven hours a day. The rest of our day is open stream, and we run 24/7. And when you’re circulating 23,000+ songs, the likelihood of repeating a song in a 24-hour cycle is slim and none.

6:00 p.m.      Sweet Soul Music ’65: Various Artists

Features Otis Redding, Kim Weston, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Joe Tex, Lee Dorsey, The Dixie Cups, Fontella Bass, and many more!

10:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart

This is our last episode of The Inner Sanctum for this broadcast cycle of Old Time Radio. The final airing will be on Friday. Then we’ll take a short hiatus, and be back with a new series. 

This is literally the perfect day for you to give us a try. WTF, America? Everyone else seems to “get it.”



It’s Open Stream All Day Until Valerie Carter Drops By To Serenade Us, The Inner Sanctum Gets a Late-Night Airing, Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Don’t be fooled! Women’s Week rolls along in spite of the fact that it’s Open Stream most of the day! Valerie Carter pays us a visit later.

Valerie Carter-2

Here’s your Wednesday line-up!

All Day     Open Stream Wednesday!

We are circulating 23,000 songs and playlists daily, totally commercial-free, no politicians, no chatter, and no bullshit.

7:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Valerie Carter   NEW!

You may not know singer-songwriter Valerie Carter like you know some of the other women we feature here, but you will. The little girl with the big voice fell under the radar, but not with her peers, who often sought her out to sing with them — including Jackson Browne, Little Feat, Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley and many others. She was also a long time member of James Taylor’s recording and touring band. Carter wrote the Judy Collins hit, Cook With Honey, and co-wrote Jackson Browne’s Love Needs a Heart. It is rumored that Steve Winwood’s song Valerie was inspired by her, as was Jackson Browne’s That Girl Could Sing

10:00 p.m.   The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked

Get your late-night spooky on, people, as we wind down our Inner Sanctum collection.

I say this every day and I mean it: This is a great day to tune us in. No credit card, no information, no money required. We’re totally free and outside the system. 


It’s Happy 74th Birthday to Linda Ronstadt! The Birthday Bash Begins Later This Afternoon After Our (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today begins our Linda Ronstadt Birthday Bash! Like Tom Petty, there’s so much material to celebrate with, and she is our ‘House’ female soloist! The party starts today and leads us into next week — officially Women’s Week here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Here’s today’s line-up!

9:00 a.m.    The Inner Sanctum: The Melody of Death

We get the spooky on early today, so we can Open Stream before the bash begins!

ALL DAY    Wednesday is Wide-Open Stream Day!

We are circulating 23,000+ songs all day long, and we’re still building the library!

5:00 p.m.  Linda Ronstadt’s Birthday Bash! The Stone Poney/Early Years!

We start right at the beginning of this woman’s amazing musical journey, with the Stone Poney years and her Capitol Records recordings. This is just the beginning.

This would be an excellent time to tune us in! We have some great music in store over the next two weeks, including some new Linda Ronstadt live recordings to lay on you. As far as I know, we are the only radio station that pays respect to women in this manner, (and that includes Sirius-XM).




It’s Open Stream Wednesday Until “The Man From Yesterday” Drops By, July 8, 2020!

Good Morning, Music Lovers! This is a wide-open Wednesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’re setting all the controls on “shuffle” and we’re letting the gerbils inside the radio station choose the sounds! You can’t go wrong here.

Open Stream-Twitter 7-8

Here’s your line-up for Wednesday:

All Day    Wide Open Stream

Who knows what  will be chosen? There are 23,000+ songs and we’re adding more songs and playlists today!

7:00 p.m.  The Inner Sanctum: The Man From Yesterday

One spooky interlude this evening is all that’s planned!

Tune us in. No chatter. No commercials. No bullshit. No credit card required and no registration. Just music 24/7.


It’s Open Stream Until Wilbury Wednesday Begins in the Early Evening and The Death Ship Pulls Into Port, June 24, 2020

We’ve got a wide open stream all day long tomorrow, followed by our Wilbury Wednesday for the month of June, and our latest episode of The Inner Sanctum!


6:00 p.m.   Wilbury Wednesday! In The Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys  NEW & EXPANDED!

Not only do we have every song made by the Wilburys here, but we recently found some bootleg outtakes from Volume 1. Seven songs to be exact. This is the greatest supergroup on the planet. You’re going to want to tune in. 

The set list will be up under the Playlist tab. Scroll to the bottom!

10:00 p.m.   The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship

A late-night layover as The Death Ship pulls into port with its cargo of Buddha only knows what. Probably crates full of Coronavirus. Who’s steering that thing?

Bad jokes are my specialty. But the music’s great and they don’t allow me on the air, do don’t worry about the jokes.


It’s a Wide-Open-Stream Wednesday Until Later, Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got 12 hours of open stream, no commercials, no fees, no nothing but great music here from The Mermaid Lounge.
