Good Morning, Ungovernables! If you read the CD cover, The Blue Stingrays were the most famous surf band in history. Their legend is all spelled out. We introduce them to you today.
Here’s your Saturday line up!
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles
The final airing of our Album of the Week, On The Border. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a brand new album!
5:00 p.m. #SurfMusic is Back! Introducing the Blue Stingrays! NEW!
When you look at the album cover, Surf N’Burn looks like a classic surf band album. In reality, it’s a 1997 release from The Heartbreakers without Mr. Petty. There is plenty of genuine surf guitar reverb here, masterfully played by one of the giants of guitar, Mike Campbell. He does Dick Dale (whom we will also be hearing soon) proud.
The give-away for me was the instrumental Goldfinger, which appeared on Surf N’Burn, a tune that the Heartbreakers played many times during their live shows in the 90s.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Foxboro Stadium, Foxboro, MA, July 14, 1990 NEW!
The Dead visit the Boston area and play Foxboro (not fucking Gillette) Stadium, before all the corporate entities started buying up the names.
Tune us in. We’re outside the system and we’re free. Forever.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are here on #SurfMusic Debut Day, kicking off at noon (Eastern). Later, we have a new Live Dead. Is Barton Hall their best concert ever?
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Instrumental Surf Anthology, Volume 1: Various Artists NEW!
Surf Music was a pretty big thing during the sixties, peaking in popularity between 1962 and 1964. It originally began as instrumental music, with Dick Dale being the most iconic of the instrumental genre. Then the Beach Boys came along and brought the vocal genre to the mix. Here we start off with about an hour of the instrumental genre.
5:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Adieu False Heart, Linda Ronstadt & Ann Savoy
The final airing of our Album of the Week (sadly). Tomorrow when you rush to the blog, there’ll be a new album!
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Barton Hall, Cornell University NEW!
Is this the absolute best live performance ever turned in by The Grateful Dead? There are many Deadheads who believe it is. See for yourself.
Tune us in, people. Time’s a wastin’

Another fine live entry by the ultimate jam band.
We’ve got a lot of listeners, but not a lot from the U.S. by comparison. What’s with that, people? No time for music?

Earlier this week, we featured Hendrix and talked about the ’27 Club’ of musicians who have passed in their 27th year. Sadly, Gram Parsons is also a member.

Today’s treat gives us yet another great solo effort by Tom Petty. Full Moon Fever was released 31 years ago Friday, on April 24, 1989. Petty was joined on the album not only by his Heartbreaker bandmates, but also by his Wilbury bandmates. The album was produced by Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Mike Campbell. Most of the compositions were by Petty and Lynne. The album was an immediate critical and commercial success, peaking at number 3 on the Billboard charts. It was certified 5X platinum in the U.S. and 6X platinum in Canada.

A classic from that long, strange road trip they took together in 1978.
Tune us in. We’ve made it half way through already.
