*Oh, yeah, we invited the Dead for their usual 10:00 p.m. appearance to move us into the new week!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is the Women’s Week Grand Finale, and we end it the way we began: New live Linda Ronstadt at The Universal Amphitheater in L.A.
Here’s today’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. The Original All-Girl Revue!
The original is still the best. Hear Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Stevie Nicks, Carlene Carter and many others!
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris FINAL AIRING!
Today we bid a fond farewell to this great album. Tomorrow we will have a brand new selection for you.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at the Universal Amphitheater, October 3, 1977 NEW!
I hear it when you hear it. The buzz is that it’s great sound quality even though it’s a rare recording. Right now, this is the only UA recording I can find anywhere. And anyone who is familiar with Ronstadt’s career knows that her nights at the UA numbered in the 20 range during this time.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, N.C., April 12, 1978 NEW!
The Dead kicks out the jams with their usual 10:00 p.m. time slot, ushering us into the new week of music with a 3+ hour set live from North Carolina.
This is a great day to join us. It’s Saturday. This isn’t rocket science. And it’s free. And it’s outside the system. Every fucking day.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! The next few days here are big days for the ladies of rock n’ roll as we move toward the end of Women’s Week. Today’s programming is only seven hours worth, but it’s packed with great stuff.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore
Lucinda Williams hails from Louisiana and somehow you can just feel that coming through in her gritty music. Among her peers, she’s one of the most respected and influential singer-songwriters in the business. You’d never know it because — no matter how you look at it — women are still considered second-class citizens in the rock world. At least these women are. The little blonde sound-alike waifs they prop up on stage these days are no match.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris
This is one of those albums that musicians feel in their soul. It may not be a platinum seller, but that’s not why it’s being done. It’s one of the things you have the opportunity to make after you’ve paid your dues in the business. And both Ronstadt and Harris have done just that.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur NEW!
Friend of Linda, Bonnie, Kate & Anna McGarrigle and many others. Maria Muldaur has been out there since the great folk revival of the sixties. She has been gracing us with her own solo work and also singing background and harmonies with just about everyone else, including Linda Ronstadt, the Jerry Garcia Band, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and Paul Butterfield. Today she gets The Spotlight, and deservedly so.
This is — without a doubt — an excellent week to tune in #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We still have a long way to go with Women’s Week, and we have a lot of women still to air — both well known and not so well-known. Tune us in.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We continue on with Women’s Week here in The Mermaid Lounge. No other radio venue we know gives women a decent platform. Women aren’t afterthoughts here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Inner Sanctum: The Skull That Walked NEW SPOOKTACULAR!
The first airing of our new Inner Sanctum episode.
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris
A very nice retrospective of Emmylou’s repertoire, which is extensive and defies all the rules. That’s why we love her here in the lounge.
7:00 p.m. Amy Winehouse Live From Porchester Hall, London, March 8, 2007 NEW!
When Amy Winehouse passed in 2011, she became yet another member of the ’27 Club’ of talented musicians who have died before their time. She joins Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and many others. She is in good company, but we wish she weren’t.
Oh, well, it’s good day in hell. Who said that? You need to join us today. We are totally free. I know you don’t believe me, but you can prove it to yourselves very easily by clicking on the link below. Listening is believing.
