Good Morning, Music Mates! We’ve got some special programming today as kick off Tom Petty Month here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio!
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
9:00 a.m. The British Are Coming: Various Artists
We’ve got just over five hours of non-stop, no-commercial British Invasion music for you today as we unleash our The British Are Coming playlist. Hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Zombies, The Animals, The Kinks, The Bee Gees, Dave Clark Five, Cream, The Who and more!
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live & Loving It!
This is DJ’s choice: My favorite “live in concert” Tom Petty & The Heartbreaker performances over the years as we officially kick off Tom Petty month in ROCKTOBER!
11:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Give It Up by Bonnie Raitt
Bonnie Raitt’s second studio album with some pretty great blues tunes running throughout. If you haven’t heard it yet, don’t miss out. There’s only one airing left after today.
Great day to tune us in and have some fun. We’re 24/7. We’re free. No advertising. And no boring DJ chatter. What are you waiting for?
Happy Monday, Slaves! We hope you enjoyed BLUES WEEK. We have some great programming coming up as we slide on into Petty month here in The Mermaid Lounge later this week.
Here’s Monday’s great line-up:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan: Rare Performances From The Copyright Collection, 1962-1966
We haven’t had any live Dylan here for a while, and we must remedy that situation. This is one of the best that we’ve been able to dig up from the vault. It’s a good one.
3:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Theatre, London, August 2, 1977
Perhaps the most underrated band in rock music history. Little Feat was impossible to pidgeonhole, a brilliant combination of the blues, country, rhythm & blues, and good old fashioned rock n’roll. I saw them a few times before Lowell George’s untimely death, and they never, ever disappointed.
7:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones From The Vault, Live at San Jose Arena, April 19-20, 1999
Mick and the boys tear it up in San Jose. Another band that has stood the test of time, and is still tearing it up on stage, people.
This is a good time to tune us in. In fact, any day and at any time, it’s a good day to tune us in because we run 24/7 without interruption. What are you waiting for?
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have Wide Open Stream until 11:00 a.m. EST, when we begin airing The British Are Coming, more than five uninterrupted hours of British Invasion (and beyond) music.
Here are some of the artists you’ll be hearing:
The Rolling Stones
The Dave Clark Five
Them (featuring Van Morrison)
and many more. So, tune us in, people. You will not regret it.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have an Open Stream morning, and then we’ve got some excellent programming for you, including a brand new ‘Summer of Love’ playlist.
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
All Morning Open Stream From The Mermaid Lounge
Circulating over 25,000+ songs all day and all night long!
2:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Strange Days by The Doors
The final airing of Strange Days is here. Tomorrow, there will be a brand new Album of the Week.
6:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! The Summer of Love, Volume 3: Various Artists NEW!
Still more great songs released during The Summer of Love with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jackie Wilson, Wicked Wilson Pickett, The Bee Gees, Donovan, The Turtles, Vanilla Fudge, The Association, The Who and more!
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Fillmore West, July 2, 1971 NEW!
Another great jam from The Grateful Dead live from the Fillmore West in San Francisco, from July 2, 1971. Three hours of great music!
Come join us in our happy place. No lie. You will never believe us until you try us.
Good Morning, Time Travelers! Here we are back in The Summer of Love, and we’ve got a couple of great ones today. There’s also that guy named Jimi Hendrix hanging out too.
Here’s today’s Summer of Love line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Doors
The Doors influenced music in immense ways in a very short period of time. Who knows what could have come our way down the road. Morrison was, without a doubt, a poet. And the band was really good. The whole package, gone before we knew it. The Doors actually had two album releases in 1967, their debut album (The Doors) and Strange Days (featured yesterday).
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
With one album, Hendrix went from struggle to stardom. This album is heralded as one of the most amazing debuts in rock history.
7:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! Their Satanic Majesties Request by The Rolling Stones NEW!
The Stones’ only foray into psychedelic music before returning to their roots was not one of my favorite efforts. However, it was the natural progression at the time, and to leave the album out would be egregious. (And any album that has She’s A Rainbow on it can’t be all bad.) I just thought the Stones felt uncomfortable with the genre more than anything. Contributing to this was the fact that the entire recording process was a literal shitshow. The link provides the details.
This would be an excellent day to tune in, turn on and drop out. Spend the day here in The Mermaid Lounge. You deserve a break from all this bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It has been a while and we were more than overdue for another Mudcrutch Madness Monday, and we salute Mick Jagger on his birthday with some live Stones!
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Mudcrutch Monday Madness!
Here we are again celebrating the band that birthed Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I say birthed rather than morphed into because Mudcrutch is a badass band all on its own. Petty brought them back into the light in 2008, and the rest is musical history, including a brilliant tour in 2016 where the definitive version of Hungry No More was recorded live at The House of Blues in Boston. We love Mr. Petty here.
Mudcrutch is Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench (all from the Heartbreakers), along with Randall Marsh and Tom Leadon.
3:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Tell-Tale Heart NEW!
Here’s our very last episode of The Inner Sanctum for this broadcast cycle. But don’t despair! We’ve got plenty more old time radio spooktaculars on the horizon. So, enjoy The Tell-Tale Heart.
7:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones Live at The Palais Royale Ballroom, Toronto, Canada on August 16, 2002 NEW!
We celebrate Mick Jagger’s birthday (yesterday) with a very unique live performance. It took place in Toronto, Canada, and was essentially a surprise performance to just 1,000 guests.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Hey, still the best advice I’ve heard. Especially if you’re fortunate enough to be off on a Monday. Tune us in. We’re free. We’re 24/7. We’re outside the system.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are off to a very early start this morning with The Inner Sanctum. Deb’s Stream is brandy new today and is called, “What’s In A Name?”
Here’s today’s line-up:
9:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Amazing Death of Mrs. Putnam FINAL AIRING!
This will be the final airing of this episode of The Inner Sanctum. We move on to a new story on Monday.
12:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name? NEW!
A collection of great rock n’ roll, country and blues songs with a name in the title. Like, Jolene, Mrs. Robinson, Carol, Maybelline, Casey Jones, Eleanor Rigby, Mary Jane’s Last Dance…you get the picture.
6:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live in Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012
There’s a reason why these guys share #BecomeUngovernable House Band status with The Beatles. The boys were recorded live at the Piazza Napoleone. The set list is under the Playlist tab. It should be pretty close to the top. This is one of our favorite playlists.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s the musical landscape as we retreat into The Sixties for the day. I’m happy to make the trip!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane NEW!
The band that pioneered psychedelic rock and cemented the San Francisco Sound back in the day deserves its place in the spotlight on a Sixties Sunday. Jefferson Airplane was also the first band of its genre to achieve commercial success.
3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists NEW!
The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan, The Dead, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, The Byrds, The Yardbirds, Cream, Vanilla Fudge…and all the rest of the bands that launched an incredible generation of music.
