Show 491 - The Summer Soupy Shuffle

Air Date:

Monday, 29 August 2011

Oh my god, it’s the end of the summer.

Don’t freak out because help is on the way. It’s Little Steven’s Underground Garage this weekend doing the Summer Soupy Shuffle.

We put all 490 shows into an iPod and let that pick the show this week.

So I don’t know what’s going to happen. So you have to tune in and we will all find out together.

I do know we will be joined by Jeff Beck, the Who, Traffic, J. Geils Band, Sam Cooke, the Chiffons, and Little Richard.

Brand new music from Butch Walker & the Black Widows, the Smithereens have a fabulous new record, Spanking Charlene will be here, and we love Spanking Charlene, the Launderettes have a new one, and who can forget Death By Unga Bunga?

Come find out what Rod Stewart, Honey Cone, and Eddie Hodges have in common.

It’s the last blowout, BBQ, beach party of the summer.

I’ll see you this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio, and on the beach, in the Underground Garage.

    Another great show - Little Steven's show is essential rock n roll education for young people today ("Yardbird's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor" as of this writing on Set #2 after "Tally Man" but is omitted from that Set"s list).

    Even a Ipod knows to put the master of composing masterpieces first, Dylsn who else.
    Like how you laid down the truth in set 5 Stevie.

    Hey Little Stephen. I just wanted to let you know that show 491 was one of the best that I have ever heard. Of course, they're all great buththis one really kicked butt!! I have become so hooked on your show that all of my friends are mad at me because I don't go out on Sat. nights anymore. I listen to your show on 93.9, the River from Northampton Ma from 8 to 10. Your knowledge of trivia and facts about the music is truly astounding. In addition, you can play great music and are also a very good actor, as well as an excellent host for LSUG. What else can I say? I kneel in awe of your outstanding talent. You are truly a Renaissance Man of the highest order!! Keep on Rocking!!! Sincerely, smrz!!!

    Some time before my son's birth in 2004, I started to listen to the show on Montreal's 97.7 CHOM radio station. I found the voice of the guy on the radio spots funny, but what made me want to listen to the show was the repeated name of the Ramones... Then, in early 2005, my son was diagnosed with chronic neutropenia, for which I had to quit my job and become a stay-at-home dad.

    Some time before my son's birth in 2004, I started to listen to the show on Montreal's 97.7 CHOM radio station. I found the voice of the guy on the radio spots funny, but what made me want to listen to the show was the repeated name of the Ramones... Then, in early 2005, my son was diagnosed with chronic neutropenia, for which I had to quit my job and become a stay-at-home dad.
    With our income cut in half, I could no longer afford CDs. I went back in time to the eighties where you would buy blank tapes and tape songs from the radio. I bought two one-hour tapes and would tape the show on sunday nights from ten to midnight. The next day, I would listen to the show, then on other 1$ tapes, copy the songs I liked, old and new, along with intros and infos front the bands. Also, I would listen on the previous shows from the website. in order to keep track of the songs I liked and easily find them later, I made an Excel spreadsheet of the artists, songs and which show they were in. Whenever I found errors in the playlists, when the juke box would play the second part of a set before the first or other similar situations, I would jot them down and send the info to the webmaster from time to time. By mid-2007, my son's health was back to normal and it was time for me to go back to work. I could no longer listen to the show on the radio and could not use the internet at work. I would only listen from time to time at home whenever I could log on.
    At work however, I had a co-worker who was also a musician. I started talking about the radio show one night and he asks me if I ever heard of the Chains. I answered positively, that I had heard that name in the show. Turns out he had been the bass player in the band ("Nervous Breakdown", the Chains, Coolest song in the World, first ever Christmas show (#38). Later, from september 2009 to last april, I was fortunate enough to have a job at which I could use the internet and use it while working. Whenever I could log on I would do so and randomly put a show to listen in the background.
    All this to say, that I used to be a big fan, but at some point, did not have the time ti listen to it anymore. That's where the podcast comes in. It would be great if the show could be listened to as a podcast. You download it and can listen to it whenever you want. Wasn't it Little Steven that said "If there's a problem with the format, fix it" ? I know there's money and rights involved but the Underground Garage would be great as a podcast, and would make that listener and fan become regular again.
    Little Steve and People at Renegade Nation, you have no idea how grateful I am for your show between 2005 and 2007, how it helped me stay afloat, my neck out of the water. Thank you.

      I know this was a couple of years ago, but I'm glad your son's better.

        By your handle, knowing who you truly are, it really, really makes it worthwhile... Thanks a million for caring...

    The 'take on the business world' is even more appropriate today, unfortunately. Rave on, Steven.

    Oh another comment. I can't beleive how you called out that great snare drum fill in He's So Fine by Gary Chester. As a 12 year old aspiring drummer back in the 60s I got it immediately and tried for weeks to imitate it. As an aside you mentioned Hal Blaine and other potential greatest session drummers but you failed to mention the great Earl Palmer. Talk about a discography!!!!!!!!!! Not to mention the first musician entered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame under the Sideman category. Check out Backbeat The Earl Palmer Story for a truly great read.

    In the playslist, in set two, the Yardbirds' "Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor" is not listed... The same with Red Button's "Caught in the Middle" in set 5...
