7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young
Woodstock ’69 marked the debut of a very young band named Crosby, Stills & Nash. It was the beginning of a musical legacy. We celebrate their birth today In the Spotlight.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here’s your planned programming for today! It’s David Crosby’s birthday, so today’s special is In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. That will air at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Warming up with Janis as we prepare for our Woodstock weekend!
1:00 p.m. Chris Hedges: Fascism In the Age of Trump
Like it or not, the only bipartisan program our legislators have is screwing us over. Trump is no savior. He’s no “outsider.” He’s no exception. In fact, he’s exactly the kind of garbage that a dying empire has left to offer.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young
Happy Birthday, David Crosby!
7:00 p.m. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the Enslavement of the American Worker
It’s all part of the grand scheme.
On August 15-18, 1969, the grand kahuna of outdoor music festivals took place on Max Yazgur’s farm in Bethel, New York. People have been talking about Woodstock ever since. They’ve tried to replicate this event several times since then, but there will always be only one Woodstock…and that’s the original.
On August 15-18, #BecomeUngovernable Radio will celebrate the Woodstock music generation by playing music by all the bands that made Woodstock what it is: Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Janis Joplin, to name just a few. It marked the very first time anybody heard Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Join us August 15th to the 18th for three days of peace, love and music on #BecomeUngovernable Radio.
(We’ll be giving you more details as the date gets closer!)
