Show 480 - Four Big Ones (The Stupid Melody)

Air Date:

Monday, 13 June 2011

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

This week in the Underground Garage we have picked four really cool songs that influenced a whole lot of other really cool songs.

We are going to analyze them, and then you can dance to them.

Joining us will be the Music Machine, Donovan, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Otis Redding, the Turtles, the Bangles, the Clash, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.

We got the best and brand new music in the world from Flogging Molly, Spanking Charlene, the Dahlmanns, Candy Golde, and brand new music from Joey Ramone, yes, he left us with one more cool album.

Can you also believe we have a brand new single from the British Birds?

We are calling it Four Big Ones baby, this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Wow, Steven, you've done it again; the four song show is great. Great song line-up, especially the older ones. And I thought poontang was a real South Jersey word; guess you guys up north used it too. Don't ever stop. All our wishes and prayers are with the Big Man.

    Yes, let us all pray for that saxophone player with the heart of a lion.

    And let me thank Steven here for that inspiring riff he spoke a few weeks ago, about how those of us without any choice always have one last desperation forty - foot jump shot, always available to those of us who don't even fit with the outcasts: Re-invent yourself as a rock star.

    Underground Garage Rulez!

    Now I gotta go back to stupid reality again....

    Stevie...love the show...it is virtually perfect! One small, little, tiny, bitch I have...how come New Jersey's own The Smithereens never get any airplay? They have just put out the finest album of their career IMHO, called 2011. Also, have you heard of The Flashcubes from Syracuse? You should play some of their stuff...it's top notch rock n roll. Thanks bro..Dave in Massacachusetts

      I'd like to hear the Smithereens on your show too. I saw them headline at The Beatle-Con in Chicago a few years ago. They were by far the very best of the whole convention!

    Great show as usual and I'm really enjoying this new perspective on british songs especially the Kinks and The Who. Just to echo the comments of other members my thoughts and prayers are with the Big Man, his family and friends. Looking forward to seeing you on down the road.

    I don't see the radio show playlists anymore. What happened? This is where I get a lot of my music from, especially the surf music beds.

    Hey Little Steven,
    I've been listening to your show for years and I don't think I've ever expressed my appreciation to you for keeping the True Spirit of Rock and Roll alive and well. My friends burn me cds all the time because they want me to listen to newer music. It makes me want to drive my car off a cliff. A good deal of modern music is very depressing. This is why I thank God everyday for your show and Late Night w/David Letter; that's the only other place I seem to find new music that makes me happy. I just Love the way you link all of this great new music to its roots in your history lessons. Cheers for paying tribute to the greats and for giving the new guys and gals a chance. Long Live Rock N' Roll!!!!!

    I never saw the guys play live, but those early recordings are with me as inner tattoos only I can see and feel. Feeling it now brings tears to my eyes.
    Another good thing is gone. It's great the Big Man shared with us.
    And that won't every go away.
    Great show, Lil' Steven

    Just heard about the passing of Clarence. Passing on my condolences to Bruce, Stevie and the band.

    So sorry to hear about The Big Man, I was fortunate enough to see you on The River tour at the LA Sports Arena back in 1980 and several shows here in the UK. Head and shoulders above all other gigs I've been to.(although The Who at The Rainbow - first gig with Kenney Jones was a corker!) Also very much enjoyed Disciples of Soul at Norwich UEA and a while later at the Town & Country Club in Kentish Town.

    Steven....I've been listening to the show since it first hit Cleveland. I get excited when 10:00 PM Sunday night starts to approach because I will soon spend two of the best hours of my week inside the Garage. I shut off the lights and listen in the dark and enjoy every minute of it.It's not background music. It is what I am doing. I am jealous because this is the kind of show I thought I would do if I had things more together. Please don't ever let it stop. Great, great job.

    Boy have the angels got some competition now. Thank you Big Man. Love and respect to your family, friends and comrades, your loss is felt around the world.

    Hey Steven, I really dig your station. You play everything I listened to in the 50's when it was my big sisters music, and everything from the 60's on. Great mix. I like Loog too! I remember when I lucked out at the Clark Air Base, Philippines, PX to find The Rolling Stones Now, and Loog had written some stuff on the album. Called the songs "groovies". I was 16 at time, a military brat of course. Thanks for all of the great shows!

    Great job Steven. This show (#480) ranks as one of your top 10. Keep up the terrific work. You have the best show on radio........ period.

    i love this episode but respectfully disagree with LS on the issue of heavy metal bands. black sabbath were very important in keeping rock alive and relevant.and so were many other heavy metal bands after them.just my two cents! never cared for iron butterfly, blue cheer or vanilla fudge who all struck me as pale imitators of cream/hendrix.

    Woooaaah, wooooahhh, wooaaaah man I have to pinch myself to realize I'm not dreaming. It's just my first week listening to the podcasts since I discovered this radio station (shame on me!) and I feel I found The Promised Land. This is amazing!! Thanks Stevie for sharing all your knowledge with us!!! Shows like this should be compulsory at school!!!
