Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to the Mermaid Lounge, where we seriously play the best music on the planet.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Wanted! The Outlaws. by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter, and Tompall Glaser.
This was basically a compilation album released in 1976 to capitalize on the “outlaw” country movement, which turned into one of the most popular country albums of all time, reaching no. 1 on the country charts and no. 10 on the pop charts. It was the first country album to be certified platinum (reaching sales of $1 million). The album also produced two singles, both featuring Waylon Jennings.
2:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon
The fantastic music from Laurel Canyon that pioneered the California sound.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beatles
9:00 p.m. Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape
Rumor has it that Stephen Stills sat down in a recording studio while Judy Collins was making a record, and simply turned on the tape and started making music himself.
Hello Everyone. I’m a D.J. here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, and will be providing content to the blog at various times. I’m pleased to be able to tell you about some of the major content additions we’ve made to the standard musical rotation over the past three weeks.
We’ve added great blues artists like Slim Harpo (The King Bee of the Blues), Little Walter, and Delbert McClinton. We’ve also added plenty of Peter Green’s version of Fleetwood Mac (great blues), and John Mayall’s Blues Breakers.
Some other artists we’ve included are Sting, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Christine McVie (without Fleetwood Mac), Eddie Cochran, The Electric Prunes, Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station), Bo Diddly, and The Blues Brothers.
We’ve also bolstered artists already in the rotation by adding tracks and collections, including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, Dr. John, Bruce Hornsby, The Grateful Dead, and Ry Cooder.
There’s also a great new flavor of New Orleans “local” bands, including The Daywalkers, Chance Bushman & Friends, and Dr. Saxtrum. We hope you’ll enjoy that.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Yesterday was the anniversary of the great Roy Orbison’s passing on December 6, 1988. We almost missed it entirely, but we didn’t. We give him his due today. Not only was he a great solo performer, but he was a member of The Traveling Wilburys.
Here’s your Saturday line-up!
11:00 a.m. Roy Orbison & Friends: The Original Black & White Concert
Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther and others join legend Roy Orbison for an evening of spectacular music shot entirely in black & white. Background singers were k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt and Jennifer Warnes.
2:00 p.m. Strike Watch With Adam Rice: Exposing Act Blue
5:00 p.m. That Sweet Soul Sound
No rap. No hip-hop. Just pure soul music from Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, Ann Peebles, Otis Redding, Ray Charles and others.
