Rumors abound that Tom Petty knew this would be his last performance, but I assure you he was not planning on leaving the earth so soon. There were lots of things still to do. He may have wanted to end the ‘big venue’ shows, but not the performances.

8:00 p.m.      Bob Dylan & Tom Petty: Across the Borderline

The legendary tour hits Sydney, Australia.

10:30 p.m.    The Ungovernables Report, October 18, 2019

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.

The Ungovernable Report, the Petty Party, The Dead, and the House Play List, Friday, October 11, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your scheduled programming for Friday, October 11:

11:00 a.m.    The Ungovernables Report, Week of October 8th

A brand new episode with Sarah Freels and Adam Rice at the desk, as it were!

2:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at The Paradise Club, Boston, MA (1978)

This is a retro rare gem. I’ll be honest, we edited out some Levi’s ads because this was a radio broadcast, so it may be a bit choppy. This is a very young, energetic Tom Petty and his crew.

5:00 p.m.     The Grateful Dead: Live at the Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco (1966)

Our favorie jam band in an early live performance here.

10:00 p.m.   The #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist

The Beatles, The Heartbreakers, The Traveling Wilburys and Aliens, Saturday, October 5, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Another full day as the Petty Party continues. Today, we have Tom Petty “live” with the Heartbreakers and recorded with the Traveling Wilburys.

traveling-wilburys-photography-1280-750px

Here’s the line-up:

10:00 a.m.    The Beatles: The Complete Apple Records Rooftop Concert

The fans loved this impromptu concert, but the British Bobbies were beside themselves trying to figure out where the music was coming from. It stopped traffic in the middle of London on a work day.

1:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Here’s some material you don’t hear every day, like Girl on LSD, Cabin Down Below and a spectacular 11-minute jam on one of my all-time favorite Petty songs, It’s Good To Be King.

4:00 p.m.      The Ungovernables Report

Our third and final airing over the weekend.

6:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys

They didn’t do it for money. They didn’t go on the road. They were five friends who enjoyed each other’s company and had a blast making music together. Add legendary drummer Jim Keltner, and you cannot go wrong. We think it shows.

11:59 p.m.    Orson Welles’ Original Broadcast: War of the Worlds

What might seem amateurish to us today scared the living shit out of everyone back in 1938. Get the popcorn ready.

 

 

Petty, Badfinger, Ungovernable Report and Capitalism: Friday, October 4, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have a full slate of programming today as the Petty Party continues!

1:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at the Fillmore (1999)

The band’s High Grass Dogs Tour hits the Fillmore with some songs you don’t hear very often, like Country Farm, Free Girl Now, and Swingin’.

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

Badfinger is the one bona-fide star band the Beatles managed to sign to Apple Records. They made some of the greatest rock n’roll on the planet. Enjoy this set.

11:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Mojo

The Petty Party Continues and It’s Happy Birthday to Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Thought we’d do something a bit different today, so we’re taking a close-up look at three Tom Petty albums, two with the Heartbreakers and one solo effort, Highway Companion, one of my all-time favorite Petty albums.

Blog photo 10-3

Here’s the line up:

10:00 a.m.   Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Montreaux (1982 & 1985)

Today would have been SRV’s 65th birthday, born in the great year of 1954 (along with yours truly). This guy’s life was cut far too short. One of the greatest blues singers and guitarists ever.

1:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Highway Companion (released July 25, 2006)

Don’t bother to listen to the critics. All they ever wanted this guy to do is rock out. He’s a whole lot more than that. In fact, his bandmates never understood why he didn’t make an all-acoustic album. He apparently didn’t think he was a good enough guitar player to go there. (He may be no Mike Campbell, but he’s no slouch on that thing.) This is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest albums I’ve heard.

4:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye (released July 29, 2014)

The Heartbreakers’ thirteenth and final studio album was one of the best ever. Up until this release, I truly believed that Damn The Torpedoes, would go down in history as the band’s crowning achievement. Not so. (We will get to DTT also.)

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers’ Mojo (released July 15, 2010)

The Heartbreakers’ twelfth album was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, and was created as a blues album. If you are a music aficionado and care to explore, there’s a cool little story behind this one.

Pull up a tab. This is going to be a good one.

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.
