11:00 a.m.   The Best of The Summer of Love! Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band  by The Beatles

Probably the most iconic album released during the Summer of Love phase was this brilliant effort by The Beatles. They would follow this up later with Magical Mystery Tour, but this one was a tough act to follow.

3:00 p.m.     Elvis Presley: The Sun Sessions   NEW!

Elvis Aaron Presley, known simply as Elvis, passed away at Graceland 43 years ago yesterday. Elvis was the inspiration for many of the musicians we are celebrating on this radio station. And that’s why we celebrate him today.

7:00 p.m.     The Summer of Love Playlist, Volume 1

There were many players during the Summer of Love, and many may not make it to the spotlight. Nevertheless, they gave us some great music. Hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Scott McKenzie, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Association, Donovan, Marvin Gaye, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Electric Prunes, Procol Harum, and many more!

Come on, people. What are you waiting for? Tune us in today. It won’t cost you a penny, and we won’t smother you with advertising.

Here’s today’s musical smogasbord:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! Johnny Winter and Dr. John Live in Sweden (1987)

Two of my favorite bluesmen, live in one place at the same time. Love this shit.

3:00 p.m.     Album of The Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Literally, one of the most bombastic debuts in rock music history. With one album, Jimi Hendrix went from struggling artist to gamechanger. His unique style would change the world of psychedelic rock forever.

7:00 p.m.     The Best of the Summer of Love, Volume 1: Various Artists   NEW!

The music released during 1967 was, literally, a cultural smorgasbord. It was musical nirvana from Haight-Ashbury all the way to my little street in Medford, where my friends and I lay in the driveway that summer with a transistor listening to WMEX. Back in the day, AM was king.

Tune us in, people. You will not regret it. It will take ONE singular visit.

The Soul Queens, Vol. 1

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.      Album of the Week: The Doors by The Doors

The debut album by The Doors was recorded in 1966 and released on January 4, 1967. It is viewed as central to the progression of psychedelic rock, has sold 20 million copies, and has a place in the Grammy Hall of Fame, as does The Doors’ debut hit, Light My Fire.

2:00 p.m.       Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues

Tom Petty wanted to make Mojo a blues album because he envisioned he and his bandmates as old men, sitting around together, playing and singing the blues. The Heartbreakers actually recorded a lot of blues tunes over their career. We decided to compile them for you.

8:00 p.m.       The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists

Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Ann Peebles, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, The Ronettes, The Shirelles, and many more!

Donovan in the Spotlight, Jefferson Airplane Live in Copenhagen, Amy Winehouse Live in London & Our Album of the Week, Thursday, February 13, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a great Thursday program today, including new “live” music from Jefferson Airplane!

Jefferson Airplane

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Donovan

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Eat A Peach by The Allman Brothers Band

5:00 p.m.       The Jefferson Airplane: Live in Copenhagen, Denmark 8-28-68

The Jefferson Airplane was undoubtedly a force during the psychedelic music era. Somebody To Love, their most popular song by far, was released during the Summer of Love (1967), and catapulted them into the pop charts. The rest, as they say, is history.
