Show 520 - The Week That Was 2012

Air Date:

Monday, 19 March 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here, and this week in the Underground Garage we are celebrating all kinds of Rock n’ Roll events, including the very first Rock n’ Roll show ever, and the very first Rock n’ Roll hit song as the theme of a movie ever.

How did the kids react to that?

Oh, very calmly. They just ripped the seats out of the theater when they heard it.

That’s right, and joining us for the party will be Chuck Berry, the MC5, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Beatles, the Stones, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

Brand new music from the Chevells, Charles Bradley & the Menahan Street Band, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and Prima Donna.

Come find out what Riff, Action, A-Rab, Ice, Baby John, and Anybodys have in common.

It’s the teenage rampage and the birth of Rock n’ Roll this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I will see you in the blackboard jungle, also known as the Underground Garage.

    Cool show with all the history of Rock Roll. Excellent Bruce songs played. Not Fade Away was wicked in the movie Christine (Stephen King one badass writer).
    People asked me why Cleveland, and I said why not the history of Rock & Roll, the museum. But the best will be Bruce & the E-Street Band.
    Rock on Stevie, thanks.

    Extremely cool show, Little Steven, covering a vast amount of territory all the way from The Moondog Coronation Ball in 1952 to Woodstock in 1969. I think your top ten + moments in Rock N' Roll is right on the button, as well. Lotza stuff to cover here so Let' Go- Daddy-O!! Early rock highlights include The Dovells, Bill Haley, Gene Chandler, and The great Jet Song from West Side Story, the best picture of 1961. I was just 13 but I must have seen it at least 10 times that summer. Even though it was a musical with all of that dancing, I still was totally obsessed with The Jets vs. The Sharks gang fighting. I used to hitchhike the 9 miles from Westfield to Springfield, Ma., to see it at the Arcade Theater on State Street. Highlights from the 60's to me were The Beatles, Arthur Conley with Funky Street, The Miracles with the Excellent Going To A Go-Go, Ike and Tina, The Who, Stones, and The Yardbirds with my fav song by them, Happenings Ten Years Time Ago, which, as you said, included both Beck and Page, and also The Kinks with my fav from 1965, See My Friends. I also can't leave out Donovan with the one-of-a-kind Epistle To Dippy, a very unique and very cool tune. The vastly underrated and underappreciated MC5 with Shakin' Strteet kept the rock rollin' during the early 70's. Great new stuff by The Chevelles, The Prima Donnas, and especially The Trolley with I Woke Up which is now firmly inplanted in my brain with that great opening Guitar and organ riff. And it all goes back to Blackboard Jungle with that great opening Rock Around The Clock by Bill Haley and The Comets which had me jumping up and down in my seat. Congrats to your show with Bruce in Boston a couple of nights ago which have received stellar reviews from every paper that I have read about it. Thanks once again,LS, for making my Sat. Nights so much fun again. KEEP ON ROCKIN'!! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

    " IF YOU TRIED TO GIVE ROCK AND ROLL ANOTHER NAME, YOU MIGHT CALL IT 'CHUCK BERRY'. BY JOHN LENNON.


    WHY NOT REMIND OUR ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC FANS THE TRUE MEANING OF ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC. LITTLE STEVEN YOU KNOW THAT I AM TELLING THE TRUTH. SO WHY NOT MAKE A SHOW IN REGARDS TO THIS TOPIC WHETHER YOU THINK IS TRUE OR NOT.



    ROCK AND ROLL MUSICIANS HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF WORSHIPPING THE DEVIL ( SATAN ).



    ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC IS THE DEVIL'S MUSIC ( SATAN'S MUSIC ).



    THE HALLMARK TRAIT OF ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC IS ITS DRIVING DEVILISH BEAT. ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC INVOKES EVIL SPIRITS ( DEMONS ). ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC IS THE DEVIL'S MUSIC ( SATAN'S MUSIC ).



    TODAY MOST MUSIC GENRES INCLUDING RAP AND HIP HOP MUSIC HAVE THE ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC DRIVING DEVILISH BEAT IN IT.



    RAP AND HIP HOP MUSIC ARE JUST OTHER FORMS OF ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC. TAKE AWAY THE ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC DRIVING DEVILISH BEAT WHICH INVOKES EVIL SPIRITS ( DEMONS ) FROM RAP AND HIP HOP MUSIC AND NOT ONE RAP/HIP HOP MUSIC ALBUM WOULD SELL.



    ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC HISTORY ( HERE IS HOW ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC HAS EVOLVED ). BLUES MUSIC, R&B MUSIC, ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC, COUNTRY MUSIC, REGGAE MUSIC AND RAP/HIP HOP MUSIC.



    CHUCK BERRY ( A BLACK MAN ) CREATED ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC OUT OF R&B MUSIC FOR A WHITE AUDIENCE BECAUSE R&B MUSIC WAS NOT ACCEPTED BY WHITES. ELVIS PRESLEY FOLLOWED CHUCK BERRY AND STARTED TO PLAY ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC TOO. THE BEATLES AND THE ROLLING STONES ( BRITISH INVASION ) FOLLOWED ETC.



    ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC IS THE DEVIL'S MUSIC ( SATAN'S MUSIC ).




    NOW YOU KNOW WHY MOST ROCK AND ROLL MUSICIANS HAVE TRAGIC DEATHS WHILE OTHERS SEEM TO LIVE FOREVER LIKE THE ROLLING STONES.



    REMEMBER ANY MUSIC GENRE THAT HAS THE ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC DRIVING DEVILISH BEAT IN IT INVOKES EVIL SPIRITS ( DEMONS ).





    ROCK AND ROLL IS THE DEVIL'S MUSIC ( SATAN'S MUSIC ).



    ANYBODY THAT FOLLOWS THE ROCK AND ROLL LIFESTYLE HAS MADE A PACT WITH SATAN ( THE DEVIL ). YOUR SOUL BELONGS TO HIM.



    NOW ENJOY ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC MY FRIENDS.





    I ENJOY IT TOO.

    "The music which is the honest, spontaneous expression of today's youth." Yeah that's what it's about!! The best rock is also the most primal. Great stuff! Still love it and listen. And, yes, it's good to see good rock is still being made. Thanks Little Steven.
