The Wailers’ Final Concert, Fats Domino in The Spotlight, Farewell to “Miles of Aisles” & This Week’s LIVE DEAD, Saturday, August 1, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got a great line-up for Saturday, including Bob Marley’s final performance ever and our new Live Dead concert!

Bob-Marley-Press-Murphy-Hershman-Crop-1480x832

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Stanley Theater, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, September 23, 1980

This would be the lion’s final concert ever as he continued to perform with malignant melanoma. Bob Marley would leave this earth on May 11, 1981. Listen to the man, people. Get up, stand up.

3:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Miles of Aisles by Joni Mitchell   FINAL AIRING!

We bid a fond farewell to Joni Mitchell’s first live album ever, Miles of Aisles. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new selection!

7:00 p.m.      In The Spotlight: The Music of Antoine “Fats” Domino

I’m not sure people truly understand how instrumental Fats Domino was to the birth of rock n’ roll, but we here do. He sold 65 millon records between 1955 and 1960 — in just five years. He also had eleven top 10 hits during that time also.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Greek Theater, University of California at Berkeley, May 23, 1982   NEW!

Jerry Garcia leads the greatest jam band on the planet back for another live session, this time from The Greek Theater at UCal Berkeley. 

In between all of this great programming, we are rotating 23,000+ songs. The chances of you hearing a duplicate song are slim and none. Give us a try today. We’re free. We’re outside the system, and we’re not in this for the money. We’re not making a dime.

We Get It Going With The Heartbreakers’ Live Anthology & “Court & Spark” Debuts as Album of The Week on Sunday, March 22, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Music is my great release in a time of stress, and I’m grateful to have #BecomeUngovernable Radio. You should give it a shot and tune us in. We’re rockin’ out with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Crank it up.

Here’s today’s programming!

2:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology, Parts 1 & 2

This music was made for crankin’ people. No doubt about it. The Heartbreakers were in their element playing live in front of an audience.

6:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Court & Spark by Joni Mitchell  NEW!

Canada has given us some brilliant musicians, Joni Mitchell being one of them. Court & Spark was Mitchell’s sixth studio album and it was released on New Year’s Day, 1974. It was a hit right out of the gate, both commercially and critically, and it remains as the pinnacle of Joni Mitchell’s long and fruitful career. 

All around and in between, we’re streaming more than 20,000 of the best songs you’ll ever hear. Tune us in, people.

Open Stream All Day Long; A Nod to The Heartbreakers in the Evening, Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Tues2019-09-16_13-05-39

There’s only one for the line-up this evening:

8:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at the Olympic (2002)

This is officially known as The Last DJ Tour. This was the one album that the Heartbreakers made that didn’t  have a unifying ‘theme’ to it, or so the rumor goes. I think the critics are regimented in this industry. Apparently, the prevailing sentiment among the snobby writers is that a mere collection of fucking great songs isn’t enough.

Actually, The Last DJ is (and always has been) about greed –that’s the only unifying theme it needs. Tom Petty was the one music artist who stood up and told the industry that he thought music was overpriced and that’s why people pirated it. Everybody else remained mute.

Tune in. You’ll enjoy it.

“Brunch With the Beatles” Gets a Re-do!

To answer everyone’s first question, YES. Brunch With the Beatles will indeed be back and, when it does come back, it’ll be better than the first time around. We’re considering that initial effort practice…mere child’s play.

As for its projected return date? We’re not sure just yet, but we promise to give everyone a couple of weeks notice. Thanks for hanging in there with us through the growth pains.

Trust me. We’re just getting started.

 

New Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers!

TomPetty_TakeOver

For lack of a better name, that’s what we’re offering here. Because, essentially, that’s what you’re getting. These gems have been unearthed by Petty’s family and band mates posthumously and appear on An American Treasure and the new career-spanning compilation, The Best of Everything. They were simply tapes of recorded songs that were, for whatever reason, deemed unworthy of inclusion on several albums. Also included is a version of the song “Stay” with Tom performing with Springsteen and friends at the No Nukes Concert. We’re the winners  here!
