Here’s your Saturday line-up:

9:00 a.m.    Album of the Week: Learning To Crawl, The Pretenders

Farewell to one of my favorites. Tomorrow when you wake up and run to the blog for your daily dose, you’ll see a brand new album!

12:00 p.m.  Going to Surf City: Various Artists   NEW!

A mix of singing and instrumental surf songs: The Beach Boys, Dick Dale & His Deltones (photo), The Surfaris, Jan and Dean, The Trashmen, The Challengers, and others. This is your introduction to the king of surf guitar, Dick Dale. It won’t be the last time you hear from him!

5:00 p.m.    #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists

In light of the present civil unrest sweeping the globe, let’s pay homage to those who chronicle the tales and seek to inspire. Hear The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Band, and more!

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead: Europe ’72, Live at the Beat Club, Bremen, West Germany, April 21, 1972   NEW!

We are back on Europe ’72 for a bit. This gig at The Beat Club is famous for being the shortest show on the tour. That’s because it was recorded for television airing.

This would be the perfect day to join us, don’t you think!

Elvis in Nashville in ’56, The Beatles in Transformation, and The Pretenders Return, on Thursday, June 4, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have some sweet stuff in our musical bag of tricks today. You’re going to love it. But only if you tune us in!

Elvis Nashvlle Sessions 1956

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

12:00 p.m.  Elvis Presley: The 1956 Nashville Recordings    NEW!

The 1956 Nashville sessions resulted in the very first album ever released by Elvis Presley. The album spent ten weeks at number one, and became the first rock n’ roll album to hit the top of the charts. It was also the first million selling album of the genre. The album also spawned the number one hit single, Heartbreak Hotel, undoubtedly one of my favorite Elvis Presley songs of all time. They don’t call Elvis “the king” for nothing. He was the inspiration for many, including the Beatles and Tom Petty, who met him at the age of 11. The rest is history.

5:00 p.m.    The Beatles: The Transformative Years

We are replaying this great playlist today that made its debut on #BecomeUngovernable Radio on May 16. Tomorrow, we add the third playlist in our Beatles series.

All three playlists are now up and available in the Playlist section of the blog. Just scroll to the bottom!

9:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Learning To Crawl by The Pretenders

We’re back with this great album from The Pretenders. If you haven’t heard it yet this week, you’ll only have Saturday. On Sunday a new album will be chosen.

Tune us in, people. You have no idea what you are missing!

4:00 p.m.  The Band: Live on the King Biscuit Flower Hour 8-16-76   NEW!

First, they were The Hawks, backing up rockabilly singer Ronnie Hawkins. Then, they gained some notice when they helped electrify Dylan. After that, they became The Band, and the rest is musical history. The Band is Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson, and they are a force of nature.
