CSNY in The Spotlight, The Rolling Stones Live at The Fonda Theater & Dylan Live at Budokan, Monday, April 27, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to yet another Monday, but we won’t call it a Funday unless you’re tuning us in for some great music!

CSNY

Here’s your Monday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite bands. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite and, when I do, it could change at any time!

4:00 p.m.     The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Live at the Fonda Theater, Hollywood    NEW!

Maybe Van Morrison started a trend when he performed Astral Weeks live at The Hollywood Bowl in 2009 because, in May 2015, at the intimate Fonda Theater the Rolling Stones performed the entire Sticky Fingers album live in concert for the first — and so far — only time in their career.

7:00 p.m.     Bob Dylan: Live at Budokan 1979

One of my favorite Dylan live shows here. Enjoy.

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. (I think someone famous said that.)

Lukas Nelson & POTR in the Spotlight, The Beatles Rock the Rooftop, This Week’s “Live Dead,” and Farewell to “Let It Bleed” on Saturday, April 11, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! At the end of this day of indentured servitude to the consuming public, it will begin my weekend. We have some great programming today.

Beatles Rock the Rooftop

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Let It Bleed, The Rolling Stones  FINAL AIRING!

This is the final airing of Let It Bleed. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a brand new Album of the Week.

2:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

Yes, Willie’s boy has a hell of a country rock band here. POTR also doubles as Neil Young’s road band in their spare time.

6:00 p.m.   The Beatles Rock the Rooftop!

The Beatles final public performance happened on January 30, 1969 with an unannounced concert from the rooftop of Apple Corporation headquarters at 3 Saville Row. Their fans were ecstatic with the lunchtime entertainment. The British Bobbies? Not so much.

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Watkins Glen, New York (7-28-73)

We’re taking a break from Europe ’72 this week and airing a concert from Watkins Glen, New York. No two Dead performances are ever the same. They are the ultimate jam band. 

Tune us in. It’s Easter weekend. The bunny’s efforts are scaled back this year. We’ll blunt the trauma with some great music.

Van Morrison “Live” in Montreux, Linda Ronstadt “Live” at Rockpalast, The Band in the Spotlight, and Our Album of the Week, Thursday, April 9, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re getting off to an early posting start because we’re getting off to a 10:00 a.m. musical start!

Here’s today’s incredible line-up:

10:00 a.m.   Album of the Week: Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones

This is not only one of my favorite all-time albums, but the song Gimme’ Shelter is one of my all-time favorite songs. That inerlude by Merry Clayton is amazing.

1:00 p.m.    Van Morrison: Live From Montreux, Switzerland   NEW!

Van Morrison was built to last. He began his career in 1964 with the British blues band Them. They were billed as part of the British Invasion, and their most famous hit is Gloria, but I also remember them for Baby Please Don’t Go. For Van Morrison and his fans (and I am one), the rest is history. 

5:00 p.m.   Linda Ronstadt: Live at Rockpalast, Germany

Speaking of built to last. I have no doubt that Linda Ronstadt would still be musically contributing in some way had she not been robbed of her lifeblood by Parkinsons. What we do have is an amazing body of work that crosses all kinds of genres and defied the naysayers who said, “You can’t sing that. You’ll ruin your career.” She did. And it didn’t.

8:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of The Band

Yeah. And then, there’s these guys. This is the perfect way to close out today.

Tune us in, people. www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio

Tom-Petty-1

Here’s your line-up:

I’m not sure it gets any better than this when we’re talking about live music. These guys are magic on stage.

4:00 p.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! Big Joe Turner and Roomful of Blues, With Special Guest: Dr. John

7:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Let It Bleed, by The Rolling Stones

57214-the-beatles-the-beatles-wallpaper

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up

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

Not much you can say about The Fab Four that hasn’t been said already. They literally changed everything.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones  NEW!

Let It Bleed is the eighth British and tenth American album made by The Rolling Stones, released in December 1969, shortly after the band’s North American tour. There was a lot of turmoil in the band during the recording of Let It Bleed. Brian Jones was in the midst of a drug meltdown, and was fired during the  making of this album. He was replaced by Mick Taylor. Jones would die about a month after being fired.

6:00 p.m.   Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Roxy  NEW!

Bob Marley was born in Nine Mile, British Jamaica on February 6, 1945, and began his musical career back in 1963. He is considered a pioneer in Reggae music, and developed his unique style by fusing elements of Reggae, Ska and Rocksteady. Marley helped to bring about the global acceptance of Reggae.

Tune us in. I promise you’ll be happy you did!

The All-Girl Revue, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ in San Jose, Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions, and Band On The Run, Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Does it get any better than this? Of course, it can. This is #BecomeUngovernable Radio where everything we do every day is done without giving one thought to the system.

Springsteens Seeger Sessions-1

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Paul McCartney & Wings, Band On The Run

The problem with being a Beatle is that — as a solo artist — you are always measured by the band’s standards. When it’s one of you, those are eight tough shoes to fill. This album was, without a doubt, outstanding. And given the various calamities that took place during the recording of this album, it’s a miracle it was. You can read about it here.

2:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3

Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris, Melanie, and Dolly Parton grace this particular volume.

5:00 p.m.      The Rolling Stones, One From the Vault: San Jose, 1999

Mick and the boys tear it up.

9:00 p.m.      Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions

This shit is just unbelievable. Springsteen pays appropriate homage to folk god Pete Seeger.

Before, in between, at the end…in fact, 24/7: We are open all day and night with the best music on the damned planet. See for yourself.
