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

 

Van Morrison “Live” at the Capitol Theater, Johnny Winter “Live” at The Bottom Line, and Our Album of the Week, Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Tuesday Bluesday here, and we’ve got new Johnny Winter to fit the bill.

Johnny winter-2

Here’s your Tuesday line-up:

1:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Souvenirs, by Dan Fogelberg

4:00 p.m.   Van Morrison: Live at the Capitol Theater, LA, October 6, 1979

7:00 p.m.   Our Tuesday Bluesday Selection: Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978   NEW!

Johnny Winter’s entire life was dedicated to the blues. Although sometimes forgotten, his string of monster albums in the late sixties and early seventies established Winter as one of the most important figures in the blues genre. 

Tune in. We’d love your company.

Dylan at Budokan, The “Let It Be” Sessions, Mudcrutch Madness & Van Morrison in the Spotlight, Friday, February 21, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a fine day of programming here at The Mermaid Lounge, home of #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

59994159c5140b66aec22906195048f8

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Bob Dylan Live at Budokan (1979)

2:00 p.m.       The Beatles’ Let It Be Sessions: Rare and Unreleased

By the time Let It Be rolled around, the good times were few and far between for The Beatles. Still, some of the old magic was there during the sessions, as you can see from today’s photo. We have about 30 session minutes in this set, followed by Let It Be…Naked, the non-Phil Spector version of Let It Be.

5:00 p.m.       Mudcrutch Madness!

There are those who will say that Mudcrutch doesn’t look a thing like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, but I’ll argue that point. Mudcrutch looks exactly like TPHB: A bunch of friends who enjoy playing music together and just happen to be really good at it.

In this band, the band that launched The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty is the bassist. And although he fronts the band and sings many of the songs, others contribute vocally as well. The standout here is the brilliant version of Hungry No More recorded at Boston’s House of Blues in 2016, which appeared on the posthumously-released An American Treasure box set in 2018.

9:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Van Morrison
