Good Morning, Ungovernables! On this day in 1954 (I was a little over 2 months old at the time), the Billboard magazine headline read:
“Teenagers Demand Music With a Beat — Spur Rhythm & Blues”
Throughout the sixties, R & B became the inspiration for many, many of the bands we feature here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, including both The Beatles and The Stones.
Here’s your R & B line-up:
1:00 p.m. Sweet Soul Music 1966: Various Artists
Including The Isley Brothers, The Supremes, Lorraine Ellison, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Wicked Wilson Pickett
6:00 p.m. Sweet Soul Music 1965: Various Artists
Including Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, Fontella Bass, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and James Brown (the hardest working man in rock & roll)
Tune us in and pay homage to those who helped start this thing.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve dug deep on the live music today to bring you Derek & The Dominos! Sit back and enjoy the music.
Here’s today’s line-up:
1:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding (aka, The Big O)
Gone before his time at the age of 26 in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of five teen-aged members of the BarKays, who had been recording and touring with him. The former well-driller from Macon, Georgia, is considered one of the greatest singers of all time, and certainly a pioneer in soul music and R & B.
4:00 p.m. Derek & The Dominos Live! NEW!
Derek & The Dominos was formed in the spring of 1970 by singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, and drummer Jim Gordon. They had all played together previously in Delaney & Bonnie and Friends (who you will hear on our station in the very near future). Also contributing to their musical efforts were Dave Mason, George Harrison (the band was formed while he was making All Things Must Pass), and legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman.
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 1
Sit back and enjoy Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carlene Carter, Irma Thomas, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Lulu, and Patti Smith…just for starters.
It doesn’t get any better than this, Ungovernables! We’re totally OUTSIDE the system.

On December 10, 1967, Otis Redding was killed when the twin-engine Beechcraft he was riding in crashed in the icy waters of Lake Monona, just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Redding was just 26 years old, and had just recorded his only number one hit, (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay three days before his death.
Today we honor Otis Redding by introducing In the Spotlight: The Music of Otis Redding at 6 p.m. EST. www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio
New Music Additions to the Standard Rotation!
It’s not uncommon for us to go on music hunts to find new stuff. We did that with Otis Redding and were able to add material we had not seen when we first began uploading to this station. We have added it to the standard rotation. In addition, we added these new artists over the past several days:
- Clarence Carter
- Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station)
- Hank Williams Sr.
- John Fogerty
- Kate & Anna McGarrigle
- Karla Bonoff
- John Mayall
We also added to the Tom Petty and Grateful Dead libraries.
We have new shows on tap, and we will announce one of these by the weekend. The only way you hear about this is by following the blog, folks!
