The Petty Party Continues and It’s Happy Birthday to Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Thought we’d do something a bit different today, so we’re taking a close-up look at three Tom Petty albums, two with the Heartbreakers and one solo effort, Highway Companion, one of my all-time favorite Petty albums.

Here’s the line up:

10:00 a.m.   Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Montreaux (1982 & 1985)

Today would have been SRV’s 65th birthday, born in the great year of 1954 (along with yours truly). This guy’s life was cut far too short. One of the greatest blues singers and guitarists ever.

1:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Highway Companion (released July 25, 2006)

Don’t bother to listen to the critics. All they ever wanted this guy to do is rock out. He’s a whole lot more than that. In fact, his bandmates never understood why he didn’t make an all-acoustic album. He apparently didn’t think he was a good enough guitar player to go there. (He may be no Mike Campbell, but he’s no slouch on that thing.) This is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest albums I’ve heard.

4:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye (released July 29, 2014)

The Heartbreakers’ thirteenth and final studio album was one of the best ever. Up until this release, I truly believed that Damn The Torpedoes, would go down in history as the band’s crowning achievement. Not so. (We will get to DTT also.)

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers’ Mojo (released July 15, 2010)

The Heartbreakers’ twelfth album was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, and was created as a blues album. If you are a music aficionado and care to explore, there’s a cool little story behind this one.

Pull up a tab. This is going to be a good one.

Programming for Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a really great treat in the first scheduled hour of special programming today! Don’t miss it!

Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan

10:00 a.m.  Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session

Two blues greats combine for one hell of a playlist! This event was recorded live for television on December 6, 1983 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

1:00 p.m.    Governments Lie: Howard Zinn on Class Warfare, Immigration, Justice, Film and History

Perspective from one of our most treasured American voices. Nothing Zinn said then is obsolete now. In fact, our condition has grown worse.

4:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Traveling Wilburys

The Wilburys had their own careers when they decided to get together just to have fun and make music back in the 80s. The result? Undoubtedly the greatest supergroup of all time with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Roy Orbison. We also should never forget legendary drummer Jim Keltner. You had to be special to be a Wilbury. Keltner was most definitely a Wilbury.

7:00 p.m.   Alison Weir: Against Our Better Judgement

We feed the terrorist state of Israel rougly $10.41 million a day, or $3.8 billion a year. It is high time Americans understood the truth about Israel, how she was created, and whom the United States victimized along the way.
