An American Treasure, Our New Album of The Week, and The Sixties Becomes Standard Fare, Sunday, February 16, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to this totally fabulous Sunday of programming! Check those times! Nothing is as it was today!

The 1960s

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

10:00 a.m.      Tom Petty: An American Treasure

The multi-faceted release engineered by Tom Petty’s family and his bandmates, Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell, was released for holiday time 2018. An American Treasure includes alternate versions of Petty standards, unheard live versions of Heartbreakers’ songs, and several never-before-released songs that make you wonder why they weren’t released. Pay particular attention to Lonesome Dave which, as it turns out, is not only my favorite of the unreleased tracks, but is also Mike Campbell’s. Thank Buddha this guy was a work-a-holic.

3:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Band On The Run, Paul McCartney & Wings

Band On The Run was the third studio album released by Paul McCartney & Wings, and was McCartney’s fifth album since leaving the band known as The Beatles. There is no question that it is a tour de force and, given the circumstances surrounding the way it was recorded, that is a miracle.

5:00 p.m.      The Sixties on Sunday!

The Sixties becomes part of our regular rotation today, gettng air time once in the middle of every month. By the time next month rolls around, we’ll have two rotating lists.

Get on board with #BecomeUngovernable Radio. No fees. No information required.

In Honor of My 66th Birthday, I’m Playing You 66 of My Favorite Songs; There’s Also Petty Theft and the All-Girl Revue!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, putting 66 candles on a birthday cake is a fire hazard, but playing you 66 of my favorite songs on my birthday (in no particular order) is a great substitute.

 

Here’s your line-up for February 7:

11:00 a.m.     Petty Theft: The Covers

The same principles that make Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers the greatest rock n’roll band of all time also make them the greatest cover band of all time. Give it a listen. You’ll see what I mean.

3:00 p.m.      The Big 66: Sixty-six of My Favorite Songs in No Particular Order

Yeah, putting 66 burning candles on a cake is definitely a fire hazard. But I’ll play you 66 of my favorite songs of all time as my birthday gift to you! That’s slightly over 4 hours of great music. (Did I mention that there’s actually 67 because I threw one in for good luck?)

By the way, this playlist was compiled in just under an hour and a half on total impulse by combing through about 22,000 active song files on the radio station. If I did it again, there would probably be a whole new list, but these are definitely 67 of my favorites!

9:00 p.m.      The All-Girl Revue, Volume 4

Tune us in on my birthday. It’s a party, people! And it’s totally free.
