We Continue With Our Summer of Love Event, We Have Rare Mudcrutch Live, and Steely Dan in The Spotlight, Monday, August 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We will continue on today with another Summer of Love musical offering, but we don’t stop there!

Steely Dan-2

Here’s your line-up for Monday:

11:00 a.m.   The Best of The Summer of Love! Disraeli Gears by Cream   NEW!

Disraeli Gears was the second studio album released by Cream — Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. The album was released in November 1967, and features the hits Sunshine of Your Love, SWLABR, Tales of Brave Ulysses, and Strange Brew. Here, we give you the special extended version!

4:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Live at the Fonda Theater, June 26, 2016

When Mudcrutch took to the stage, it was as if Tom Petty never had another band. They were that good. This is a rare live bootleg, so don’t miss it.

7:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan

This was one of our very first Spotlight features when we started out three years ago. It’s still one of our favorites.

Great day to join in the Summer of Love festivities, people. We are totally free, built outside the system, with no commercials and no bullshit.

Roy Orbison in B & W, A Tribute to Hank, The LIVE DEAD Train Rolls On, and The Final Airing of “All Things Must Pass,” Saturday, August 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a new day here in The Mermaid Lounge. To say that today’s offering to the music gods is eclectic would be an understatement.

roy orbison black & white night (1)

Here’s today’s line-up from the lounge:

11:00 a.m.   Roy Orbison & Friends: The Original Black & White Concert

This concert was originally broadcast on January 3, 1988, and was shot entirely in black and white. Hence, the name. By any standards this was a great night, with Orbison joined on stage by Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, k.d. lang, and many others. A splendid time was had by all.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison  FINAL AIRING!

We bid farewell to All Things Must Pass, George Harrison’s unbelievable first solo post-Beatles effort. Tomorrow, it’ll be something new!

7:00 p.m.     Timeless: A Tribute to Hank Williams, Various Artists

I love these collections, where musicians have the opportunity to pay their respects to those who influenced them. With Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Keith Richards, and more!

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at William & Mary College, Williamsburg, Virginia, September 24, 1976   NEW!

The consummate road band. We have not had one repeat performance since this program started. There is no end to material here. Best of all, no two shows are ever the same. 

If you want to know what we’re all about, this would be a good day to find out. See for yourself how easy it is to tune us in. All you need is a browser tab and the link below. No credit card. No personal information. No advertising. No bullshit. No lie.

Dylan & Petty On The True Confessions Tour ’86, We Go Down To N’Awlins, and Our Album of the Week, Thursday, August 6, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got some great programming today, including one playlist that hasn’t been heard since Fat Tuesday!

bob-dylan-tributes-tom-petty

Here is your musical landscape:

11:00 a.m.   Bob Dylan with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Cal Expo Amphitheater, Sacramento, June 12, 1986   NEW!

Perhaps a bit of pre-Wilburys foreshadowing here. Any time you get two guys like this on stage together, the result can only be musical nirvana. This show is from the second leg of the True Confessions Tour.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison

This was, without a doubt, a brilliant effort by Harrison, and it deserved all the critical accolades it received. You can learn more about this album by clicking on its image in the right sidebar.

7:00 p.m.    Down In N’Awlins: Various Artists

This is one sweet playlist that hasn’t been heard since Fat Tuesday back in February. Music is from BeauSoleil, Clifton Chenier, Dr. John, The Neville Brothers, Tony Joe White, Fats Domino, Lucinda Williams, and many others. We hope you enjoy it.

I guess I should stop saying “join us.” There’s nothing to actually join. Tune us in would be a better phrase. No credit card or personal information required any day. No commercials. No political talk. Just music.

It’s Mudcrutch Madness Monday, The Rolling Stones Live @ Palais Royale & Our Final Episode of The Inner Sanctum, on July 27, 2020

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!

Rolling Stones Live

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.

TP & The Heartbreakers Visit Fenway, The Dead’s Famous Mount Saint Helens Show, and Farewell to “Homegrown,” on Saturday, July 11, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Welcome to Saturday! Our musical landscape is very agreeable today. Great programming and a lot of open stream.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Homegrown by Neil Young

Today is the final airing of this long-awaited (and I mean, long-awaited) album. On Sunday we will have a new album posted on the blog.

7:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at Fenway Park, August 30, 2014

From The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye Tour. The 2014 Fenway Park, Boston, show is considered one of the very best on this tour.

10:00 p.m.  Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at The Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, Oregon, June 12, 1980.   NEW!

Known as the famous Mount Saint Helens show, it took place just two weeks after the devastating first major eruptions of the Mount Saint Helens volcano. The volcano actually erupted for the second time during the Dead’s performance of Fire On The Mountain, appropriately raining ash down on the crowd. 

You can read Bill Walton’s account right here. If you don’t know Bill Walton, you should look him up.

Tune us in. We don’t know any other way to say it at this point: You have no idea what you are missing. For fucking free.

JT & Joni Mitchell Live at The Royal Albert Hall, Tom Petty & Mike Campbell Compositions, and The Final Airing of “The Horla” on Friday, July 3, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Another day in retail paradise for me, and another in musical paradise for you!

Petty & Campbell-2

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Royal Albert Hall, October 28, 1970

They were a thing then. And they were great together, at least musically.

3:00 p.m.    The Inner Sanctum: The Horla    FINAL AIRING!

The final airing of this week’s episode of The Inner Sanctum is upon us once again. On Monday, there will be a brand new episode.

7:00 p.m.    Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo   NEW!

We talk about Lennon-McCartney, John-Taupin, and it’s time we include Petty-Campbell on that list. More than just best friends. More than just great guitar players in a great fucking band. They were also wrote some great songs together.

Tune us in, chickens. It’ll be the best thing you do all week.

Oh, Baby, It’s a Mudcrutch Monday (and it’s rare), Emmylou Harris Helps Out The Desert Rose Band, and The Death Ship Pulls Into Port, Monday, June 22, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! I don’t know where music fits into your life, but I know where it fits into mine. And there are far worse ways to start the week.

Emmylou Harris-Desert Rose Chris Hillman small

Here’s your Monday musical landscape:

12:00 p.m.   Emmylou Harris With The Desert Rose Band

The Desert Rose Band was formed in 1985 by Chris Hillman (former member of The Byrds and co-founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons), John Jorgenson, and Herb Pederson (who has played with Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Mudcrutch, John Fogerty, Stephen Stills and many others). Add Emmylou Harris to that mix, and you’ve got a musical bonfire.

4:00 p.m.     Mudcrutch Monday! Mudcrutch Live at the Fonda Theater, Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2016 (Fan Recorded)   NEW!

This is a rarity in every sense of the word. Some days, things just fall in your lap, and that’s what happened here. I hit the veritable motherlode, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. It is a treat to hear Tom Petty and Mudcrutch live in concert, just as it’s a rush to hear Tom Petty with the Heartbreakers on stage. You can’t touch this shit.

The set list for this show will be up and running in the Playlist tab shortly. Just scroll to the bottom!

8:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: The Death Ship   NEW!

Get your spooky on, people, because The Death Ship just pulled into a port near you.

A Mostly Open-Stream Monday With Two Benefits Named Mudcrutch & The Inner Sanctum, June 8, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a bright, sunny Monday here outside The Mermaid Lounge, and we have a mostly open-stream Monday…with benefits.

Here’s your Monday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Mudcrutch Madness Monday!

All the Mudcrutch you crave. The band that left Gainesville for L.A., then disbanded and morphed into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Fast-forward to 2008: Petty brings them back together. Thankfully. The man with the musical midas touch.

6:00 p.m.     The Inner Sanctum: Study For Murder   NEW!

It’s downright creepy. Here’s this week’s airing of The Inner Sanctum. It will air two more times this week!

Give us a shot. All you need to do is pull up a tab and follow this link. You do not need to do anything else. No shit.

‘Deb’s Stream’ Debuts, Linda Ronstadt Hangs With Her Friends, and a Brand New “Inner Sanctum” on Monday, May 25, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Monday, but it’s a holiday Monday…as much as it can be in such times. But one thing never changes here. The music’s always great!

Linda Dolly Emmylou B&W

Here’s your line-up for Memorial Day:

12:00 p.m.   The Inner Sanctum: Hunter From Beyond   NEW!

We open the week with our Fourth Episode of The Inner Sanctum. We hope you enjoy it. Bwaaahahahahaha!

3:00 p.m.     Deb’s Stream: The Best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live   NEW!

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers were road warriors. I’ve always said you really cannot appreciate this band fully until you’ve at least heard them live (seeing them is what you’d imagine a ‘religious experience’ to be). This collection of songs represent my personal live favorites from one of our official house bands. (The Beatles are the other.)

6:00 p.m.    Linda Ronstadt & Friends

Like Tom Petty’s untimely death, Linda Ronstadt’s inability to sing is a rough one for me. I imagine she’d still be making pretty great music. What we have, however, is an amazing musical journey with a singer who could — quite literally — sing anything. We’re going to have some fun with Linda Ronstadt over this summer.

You can access this playlist before the show by clicking here. Scroll until you find it!

Listen, we’re free. Seriously. All you need to do is click the link below. You don’t even need to open an account or provide personal information. We’re seriously outside the system. And we plan on staying there.

We Visit the Petty Archive for Some B-Sides, Introduce the New Album of the Week, and Pay Tribute to Little Richard, on the Mother of All Sundays, May 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there. My daughter always says “Mother’s only half a word in our house.” She wasn’t kidding either.

littleking-richard

Here’s your Mother’s Day lineup!

11:00 a.m.   Tom Petty: Deep Cuts and B-Sides

Yes, with and without the Heartbreakers. Mostly with, though. Listen, their B-sides are better than most bands’ A-sides. And that’s no lie, as you will see if you tune in.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: The Band. By The Band.   NEW!

The band that began as Bob Dylan’s back-up band went on to become one of the most influential bands of its generation, and delivered the goods every time out. This effort came after Music From Big Pink, another great musical achievement. But this one saw Robbie Robertson take charge, and the The Band took a huge leap forward.

The Band, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Beatles, remains one of #BecomeUngovernable’s favorite house bands.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Little Richard   NEW!

Richard Wayne Penniman, also known as Little Richard, was a rock n’ roll pioneer who broke down many barriers in his lifetime. He influenced many who came after him, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whose early efforts were steeped in rhythm & blues. He passed away yesterday at the age of 87, and today we pay tribute to his greatness.

It’s Mother’s Day. Tune us in. You won’t regret it.
