Ronstadt, The Dead, and Monterey Pop, Along With a New Heartbreakers Playlist, Monday, October 28, 2019

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.    Linda Ronstadt: Live in Hollywood (1980)

The only actual Ronstadt-approved live album ever released, and it didn’t happen until 2019. It was well worth the wait.

2:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Under the Covers (New!)

The Heartbreakers have to be the best cover band alive. Here’s some more stuff they didn’t write, but still made their own.

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

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.

Our favorie jam band in an early live performance here.

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

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

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!

 

Programming for Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here is your special programming today from #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

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.
