The Girls Are Back, So Are The Shelters, and the PettyFest Continues, Thursday, October 17, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! The girls are back to open up our programming for the day, and we’re looking at another  Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album also.

Here’s your line-up for today:

11:00 a.m.     The All-Girl Review, Part 1

No, the only two female rockers aren’t Pat Benatar and Joan Jett, but that’s all you ever hear on Top 40 radio. Not here. You’ll hear all the real pioneers here.

2:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

Before his death, Tom Petty took The Shelters under his wing, taught them how to record, and co-produced their first album, which came out in 2016. Their second album is now out and they will be one of the highlight acts at PettyFest in Gainesville. It’s only fitting that we put them in the spotlight here.

5:00 p.m.       Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: She’s The One

Most people look totally stunned when I tell them that Tom Petty and his mates did the soundtrack for the movie, She’s the One. But they did, and we have it here!

10:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Some songs here you may not have heard live before…like Girl On LSD.

Two Years Ago Today We Lost Tom Petty, October 2, 2019

Tom Petty left this world two years ago today at the age of 66. For his fans, his friends, his bandmates, and his family it was all too soon. This month we celebrate all the great music he gave us, and remember how much he loved his fans.

Tom-Petty-Heartbreakers

11:00 a.m.   Abby Martin with Richard Wolff: Understanding Marxism and Socialism

2:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live: Pack Up the Plantation!

This was the Heartbreakers’ first official “live” album, released in November of 1985. It was primarily recorded at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, but several tracks were recorded earlier.

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

Let’s not forget that Tom Petty was also a producer and mentor to a band called The Shelters. He produced their first album, and was at work on their second with them when he passed. It has since been released, and we have updated the playlist accordingly.

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Final Interview

This is a wide-ranging interview about the future. It’s clear that Tom Petty was intending to be around for a while yet.

Programming for Friday, August, 2, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! TGIF, baby! We’ve got a great day ahead that includes two brand new playlists for your listening pleasure. Both are “don’t miss” events!

tom with the Shelters

10:00 a.m.   Badass Guitarists, Volume 1: Various Artists

This playlist could have gone on forever. Instead, we’ll break it down into small bites. It lasts longer that way. From Mike Campbell of The Heartbreakers (The guitar solo at the end of Runnin’ Down a Dream has a life of its own and is untouchable) to Slowhand, to Jimmy Page, this is the best of the best here.

1:00 p.m.    Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions: Revisionist American History, Ep. 1

This is a repeat performance of the very first episode from last Sunday before we release Episode 2. This will repeat one more time tomorrow as well. This episode is entitled Christopher Columbus Was Not a Hero. Learn about the man heralded as one who found the new world but who, in reality, unleashed a nighmare on the peaceful Native Americans already living here.

4:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters

We don’t often spotlight new music, but we are today. Tom Petty had a ton of musical projects in the fire, one of which was mentoring a young band named The Shelters. In fact, he produced their first record in 2016, which was recorded at The Clubhouse, where Petty and The Heartbreakers recorded. Give a listen to the Shelters. They’ll also be added to the Standard Rotation.

7:00 p.m.   The Secret World of U.S. Elections

Back before Julian Assange was vilified by a clueless American public following the lead of the fraudulent mainstream media, he gave us some insights into the reality of our elections. Trust me when I tell you it has not improved. In fact, like everything else when left unattended, it has gotten worse.
