The Summer of Love is in Charge Today With The Doors, John Mayall, and a Great Little Album That Goes Unnoticed, Thursday, August 20, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Somehow, this 1967 programming just kind of fell in my lap very late last night. Sometimes, without trying, things just kind of fall together!

Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live in 1967

If you follow this station and read this blog (something you should all be doing, by the way), you know we’re into music in all forms. Some of the stuff is fan recorded, and that’s just fine with us. This particular entry is short on quality, but big on blues history. After Clapton left the band, the void was filled by Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. They would go on to form Fleetwood Mac which, by the way, started with Peter Green on vocals and was an actual blues band. Get past the fan-recorded aspect of this and enjoy. By the way, if you listen to Ye, this is probably not your venue.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors

The second Doors release of the Summer of Love. As I have said previously, it did not disappoint after their fantastic debut, The Doors.

7:00 p.m.    The Best of The Summer of Love! Evergreen, Volume 2 by The Stone Poneys   NEW!

Speaking of two releases in one year, The Stone Poneys also accomplished that feat in 1967, with this release coming just five months after their debut. Nobody talks about this in ‘Summer of Love’ terms, but this was released right in the heart of it, June 1967. Unlike their debut album, Linda Ronstadt was prominently featured on vocals. Not surprisingly, it would be the most successful of their three releases before she exploded onto the music scene.

Linda Ronstadt left Tucson for L.A. with Bobby Kimmel (guitarist) to make music. They hooked up with a guy named Kenny Edwards, who would later be a very important cog in her back-up band. This is a portrait of Linda Ronstadt before we knew her, in a more trippy vein. Great stuff.

Good day to become a fan, people. I cannot emphasize this more: All you need is a browser and a tab. The rest is a breeze. No money. No credit card required. No personal information requested. Just free music. No shit. No bullshit. No lie.

It’s Wednesday, So It’s (mostly) Open Stream, Until Our Summer Of Love Album and The Wilburys, August 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another (mostly) Open Stream Wednesday…until we get to the  Summer of Love and The Wilburys.

Traveling-Wilburys-Crop-1480x780

Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!

All Day      Mostly Open Stream

Circulating 25,000+ songs and adding more every week!

5:00 p.m.   Best of The Summer of Love! Between The Buttons by The Rolling Stones  NEW!

Another one of those great bands with two 1967 releases (Their Satanic Majesties Request was the other). The U.S. release was very different than the UK version. Today, we give you the UK version.

7:00 p.m.    Wilbury Wednesday! The Music of the Traveling Wilburys

Simply the greatest supergroup on the planet. To them, they were just five guys who enjoyed each other’s friendship and playing music together. That’s what made what they did so great.

So, tune us in. We literally offer all this great music absolutely, positively free. There’s no surprise after you’ve signed on. We show our cards every day.

Boston-Tea-Party-calendar-Jeff Beck at-Tea-Party-shows-in-May-of-1969.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! The Jeff Beck Group Live at The Tea Party, Boston, MA, May 6, 1969   NEW!

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors

This is The Doors second studio release and their second release in 1967. It did not disappoint.

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

Yesterday, we replayed Volume 1 of this series, and today we give you Volume 2. Includes The Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Sam & Dave, The Buffalo Springfield, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Cream, Simon & Garfunkel, Stevie Wonder and many more.

I keep telling you that you don’t know what you’re missing. I stand behind that position again today. Maybe you’ll figure it out.

Sargeant Pepper Pays a Visit, We Celebrate Elvis, and Our Summer of Love Playlist Returns, Monday, August 17, 2020

Happy Monday,, Ungovernables! We continue our Summer of Love programming this week, with a little bit of Elvis sprinkled in for good measure.

325773

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.

This Day is MADE for The Summer of Love! The Doors’ Album “Strange Days” is Our Album of The Week, and Today is Our Sixties Sunday, August 16, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This was one of the easiest programming days on the planet for me. Everything just fell into place. I just love that shit.

summer-of-love-music-1967 (1)

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

Both The Beatles and The Doors had two album releases in 1967. This was the second for The Doors and it is most definitely Album of the Week-worthy even though we did feature it once last week. So, here it is again!

3:00 p.m.     The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists

This is always my favorite Sunday of the month. The only question ever is do I choose Volume 1 or Volume 2. Today, the decision was easy because it’s everything the latter part of the sixties were about musically. Features The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, The Yardbirds, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, The Mamas & The Papas, Donovan, The Zombies, and so much more. Over five hours of uninterrupted sixties streaming!

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That would be the order of this day, music lovers. We are totally free every day. There’s never a credit card required or, for that matter, any personal information necessary. Just pull up a tab and click on the link below.

Simon & Garfunkel in The Spotlight, “Magical Mystery Tour” is Our Summer of Love Feature, The Final Airing of “Are You Experienced?” & Saturday Night’s Live Dead, August 15, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a very busy Saturday in between all that great streaming. Sit yourselves down and enjoy.

simon&garfunkel

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel   NEW!

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel met in grammar school back in 1953, learned how to harmonize together, and began writing music. In 1957, they had their first modest success with Hey Schoolgirl, a song that emulated their idols, The Everly Brothers. The rest is — as they say — history, people.

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

Today we will bid a fond farewell to Jimi Hendrix’s brilliant debut album. Tomorrow we’ll have another Summer of Love Album of the Week for you.

7:00 p.m.     The Best of The Summer of Love! Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles   NEW!

Like The Doors, the Beatles had two album releases in 1967. Magical Mystery Tour had the unfortunate task of following up Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an impossible task. We feature it today because it’s still a great collection of transformative Beatle songs.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland Arena, San Francisco, December 31, 1977   NEW! 

What could be better than spending New Year’s Eve with The Grateful Dead in San Francisco? Not much, people.

This is your day to tune us in. Don’t waste any more time. We’re free. We’re outside the system. And we intend to stay that way.

Both The Foo Fighters and Marvin Gaye in The Spotlight, and Monterey Pop is Our Summer of Love Extravaganza on Friday, August 14, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got something for everybody today from The Mermaid Lounge, highlighted by the Monterey International Pop Festival!

Otis Redding

Here’s today’s line-up:

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

The Foos started as Dave Grohl’s one-man project after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of Nirvana. The rest, as they say, is legend.

3:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye    NEW!

Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Marvin Gaye helped shape the Motown sound, earning himself a string of hits along with the title,  The Prince of Motown. Today, we give him his due.

7:00 p.m.     The Best of The Summer of Love! The Monterey International Pop Festival  NEW!

Before Woodstock in 1969, there was the Monterey International Pop Festival held at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in California from June 16-18, 1967. The Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Johnny Rivers, Simon & Garfunkel, The Grateful Dead, The Mamas & The Papas and many others all graced the stage. It also marked the introduction of Otis Redding to the world.

Yeah, baby. This is a great music day to figure out what we’re all about. Join us. We’re free. Always. We’re about as outside the system as you can get. We’re perfect for you.
