Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.
Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams
Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.
7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017 NEW!
Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are working on uploading lots of new stuff, some rare, some we simply didn’t know still existed. Today, we’ve got some new Bonnie Raitt.
Here’s Monday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan & George Harrison Almost Went to See Elvis!
According to legend, Elvis stood them up. In fact, according to Dylan, they were supposed to record with Elvis and they stood him up. Nobody will ever know the truth. Maybe.
2:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt: Live at the Troubadour (1972) NEW PLAYLIST!
One from the vault at the legendary Troubadour, where many of her compatriots also got their start.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
9:00 p.m. All About Blue: Various Artists
I never realized how many songs contained the name of my favorite color until I got the idea for this playlist!
Tune in. Smoke a bone. Take the edge off. You won’t regret it.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is an early post because I’m opening up the Salt Mines. We have a brand new playlist on tap right off the top today.

9:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
As I have said many times, Petty’s B-sides are better than most bands’ A-sides.
