The Ungovernable Report, the Petty Party, The Dead, and the House Play List, Friday, October 11, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your scheduled programming for Friday, October 11:

Dead for Post

11:00 a.m.    The Ungovernables Report, Week of October 8th

A brand new episode with Sarah Freels and Adam Rice at the desk, as it were!

2:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at The Paradise Club, Boston, MA (1978)

This is a retro rare gem. I’ll be honest, we edited out some Levi’s ads because this was a radio broadcast, so it may be a bit choppy. This is a very young, energetic Tom Petty and his crew.

5:00 p.m.     The Grateful Dead: Live at the Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco (1966)

Our favorie jam band in an early live performance here.

10:00 p.m.   The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist

Songs of protest and freedom.

We’re Back! Programming for Saturday, September 28, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are back with a bit of a new format, starting with lighter programming and more music on the weekends. We start out today with one new and one updated playlist.

the Lovin Spoonful

1:00 p.m.    Echoes From the Canyon: Various Artists

A play list focusing on the subject of the new documentary, “Echoes in the Canyon,” which chronicles the birth of the California sound as it came together in Laurel Canyon. Featuring the songs of The Mamas & The Papas, The Lovin’ Spoonful (pictured), Jackson Browne, The Byrds, and Joni Mitchell.

5:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters (Updated)

When we put together this play list originally (a few months ago), the Shelters were riding the success of their first album under the guidance and production of Tom Petty. Since then, their second album has been released and we have updated the play list to reflect that.

News and notes from the world with Sarah Freels and Adam Rice putting their own little twist on it.

10:00 p.m.    Under the Influence: Various Artists

Programming for Monday, July 29, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we will be replaying the debut of Lies, Half-Truths and Omissions: Christopher Columbus Was Not a Hero which debuted last nightThis will be the first of several replays over the next couple of weeks.

Lies and Half Truth Columbuse image

10:00 a.m.   The Grateful Dead: Live at The Boston Music Hall

I remember the Music Hall fondly. It had the best acoustics in Boston. Today? Today it’s for the elite set. In 1983, it was renamed the Wang Center for the Arts after An Wang, who donated a boatload of money to it. Now, it’s called Citi Performing Arts Center, as part of the corporatization of our nation.

Nevertheless, the Dead was just one of many bands that graced its stage in the 70s and 80s.

1:00 p.m.     Chris Hedges Discusses Constructing Rebellion & Overthrowing Corporate Tyranny

This may seem like a continual topic, but given our present state of apathy, it is something that needs to be repeated over and over to the American people. There is no other choice.

4:00 p.m.    Lies, Half Truths, and Omissions, Episode 1: Christopher Columbus Was Not A Hero

If you think this guy still deserves a national holiday, you need to listen in to this and understand his role in the genocide of the Native Americans. Our legacy has been built on a lie, and it is time we faced our past.

7:00 p.m.    That Sweet Soul Sound

There’s nothing like it. Tune in to the Queen of Soul, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, and many more!

1976-06-12-boston-music-hall

10:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

Great tunes from one of the most innovative bands ever in rock music with their sleek, jazzy sound.

1:00 p.m.      War With Russia? 

Chris Hedges speaks with Stephen F. Cohen, Professor Emeritus of Russian Studies at Princeton University about the dangerous game we are playing by reviving the Cold War.

4:00 p.m.     Alison Weir: Against Our Better Judgement

The founder of the If Americans Knew Blog talks about how the United States participated in the creation of the State of Israel at the expense of the Arab world. (Following this blog is highly recommended.)

8:00 p.m.     The Grateful Dead, Live From The Boston Music Hall (June 1976)

Our first presentation of the ultimate road band, Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. This show comes from the hallowed halls of The Boston Music Hall, which has long since turned its identity over to the corporate world (unfortunately). The memories remain, however, as I spent many hours of my youth there seeing some great bands.
