WoodyGuthrie

Here’s your Thursday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of The Kinks

Sometimes I think the Kinks are overlooked on the big stage. They shouldn’t be. They’ve made some great rock n’roll. We’ll show you.

4:00 p.m.     Woody Guthrie: American Folk Giants, Volume 2: Various Artists   NEW!

Part two of the masters, including Woody, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, Odetta, The Weavers, The Carter Family and more! These are the people who inspired Dylan and many others. We’ll be getting to them next week!

8:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles

Without a doubt, my favorite album by The Eagles. You can learn more about this album and who helped create it by clicking on the photo on the right-hand side of the blog. Always.

Join us. Europe and Asia is all over this station. Apparently, the U.S. audiophiles are late bloomers. Either that or they don’t know good music when they hear it.

The All-Girl Revue, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ in San Jose, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and Band On The Run, Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Does it get any better than this? Of course, it can. This is #BecomeUngovernable Radio where everything we do every day is done without giving one thought to the system.

Springsteens Seeger Sessions-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Paul McCartney & Wings, Band On The Run

The problem with being a Beatle is that — as a solo artist — you are always measured by the band’s standards. When it’s one of you, those are eight tough shoes to fill. This album was, without a doubt, outstanding. And given the various calamities that took place during the recording of this album, it’s a miracle it was. You can read about it here.

2:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3

Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris, Melanie, and Dolly Parton grace this particular volume.

5:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones, One From the Vault: San Jose, 1999

Mick and the boys tear it up.

9:00 p.m.      Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions

This shit is just unbelievable. Springsteen pays appropriate homage to folk god Pete Seeger.

Before, in between, at the end…in fact, 24/7: We are open all day and night with the best music on the damned planet. See for yourself.

Bob Marley at The Beacon, Joni Mitchell at Red Rocks, Our Folk Music Playlist, and a New Album of the Week, Sunday, December 22, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a full slate today, including Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye as our Album of the Week!

Here’s today’s line up!

11:00 a.m.     Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Beacon Theater, New York

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Hypnotic Eye, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

It should be no surprise that this is one great album. Just when I thought they’d never top or even equal Damn The Torpedoes, they did. The only surprise here is that this band continued to make great music and remain at the top so late into its career.

This was the band’s 13th and final studio album before Petty’s unexpected and untimely death, and was released on July 29, 2014. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200.

5:00 p.m.      Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks 1983

9:00 p.m.      Folk Music From A to Z

Hear Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Judy Collins, Odetta, Joni Mitchell, and more!

Tune us in, people. You won’t regret it.

Programming for Saturday, August 17, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your scheduled programming for Saturday, August 17!

the Band

10:00 a.m.   We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions With Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen sings the music of Pete Seeger

1:00 p.m.    William Blum: The CIA is a Terrorist Organization

William Blum gave up his state department career after becoming disillusioned with the Viet Nam war. He spent his whole life fighting American imperialism.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Band

Before The Band became ‘The Band’ they were known as ‘Bob Dylan’s backup band.’ One of the greatest backup bands of all time was also one hell of a front band for many years. Undoubtedly one of the best musical acts to find fame after Woodstock.

7:00 p.m.    Howard Zinn: Governments Lie

Howard Zinn again speaking the truth about governments.
