Show 547 - Rocky & Bullwinkle 2012

Air Date:

Monday, 17 September 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

This week in the Underground Garage we take a trip to Moosylvania.

That’s right, we are celebrating one of the coolest cartoons shows of all time Rocky & Bullwinkle.

And people wonder why my generation has arrested development?

We are gong to explore their infinite coolest with the Electric Prunes, Lords Of the New Church, the Small Faces, the Rascals, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Yardbirds, and the Nazz.

Brand new music from Joe Walsh, the Monster Ones from Spain, Suzi Chunk from Wales, Free Energy, Michael Des Barres, and Palmyra Delran.

It’s a flying squirrel, a moose, and a Rock n’ Roll dance party this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Speaking of the comedic influences on Jay Ward's entourage, note that the voice talent's characterization of Rumpelstiltskin owes his inflection to Phil Silvers as Sgt Bilko.

    Yes Indeed! Rocket J. Squirrel & Bullwinkle Moose. 2 Of my very best Saturday Morning friends. I must admit that I was so happy to hear their voices over the airwaves again. The pictures remain firmly embedded in my gray matter. Thank You, Little Steven, for another 5 star Saturday Night that featured some great tunes to go along with my cartoon memories. Godfather of The Simpsons. That's it exactly!! O.K.-Here We go. Show # 547. Set 1. Musically, a spot-on. perfect set. Shake A Tail Feather by The Five Duo-tones. An excellent tune that you only hear in the coolnesss of The Underground Garage. I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night by The Electric Prunes & it was a very good thing that Mr. Jay Ward had that weird dream about playing cards with a talking moose. You're My Brian Jones by "the Lucille Ball of Rock 'N Roll",Palmyra Delran, as you called her, Stevie. See My Friends by The Kinks & closing the set with Dandelion by The Rolling Stones. Yes, I agree with you, Stevie, Rocky & Bullwinkle were truly Psychedelic-For Sure!! Very subversive for a Saturday Morning-EH? Set 2. Sunshine Superman by Donovan, Russian Roulette by the vastly underrated Stiv Bators & The Lords Of The New Church from 1982. Fit right in with Boris & Natasha. Must have been something in the water up in Frostbite Falls. Great new stuff with Electric Fever by Free Energy. Call It Something Nice by The Small Faces from the incredible Autumn Stone, which you also never hear anywhere else other than the Underground Garage. Closing another incredible set with by the outstanding Killer Joe by Rocky Fellers. Boy, that fit right in with The Fractured Fairy Tales which, by the way, was the theme for Set 3. Kicking off with King Midas In Reverse by The Hollies from their last album with Gram Nash. What Is The Reason by the incredible Rascals with Felix & Eddie. What about that great reunion show coming up! Talk about ultimate Coolness!! Way To Go, Stevie! Moving along with Tripwire by Suzi Chunk, and closing out the Fractured Fairy Tale Set with She's So Fine by Jimi Hendrix Experience. Excellent example of one of the best Fractured Fairy Tales ever & yes, Jerry Sherman, I agree that Rumplestiltskin's voice does owe his inflection to Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko. Excellent auditory observation Mr. Jerry Sherman! Kudos to You!! Please refer to above posted comment! Set 4. The incredible guitar of Jeff Beck with The Nazz Are Blue by The Yardbirds. Naturally & very appropriately followed by The Nazz with Todd Rundgren with Open My Eyes. Moving along with Teenage Ramone by The Monster Ones from Spain & again very appropriately followed by The Ramones with Real Cool Time. Set 5. Let's all travel to MOOSYLVANIA! Starting off with Soupy Sales & Do The Mouse from 1965. Mickey's Monkey by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Joe Walsh with some cool new stuff One Day At A Time, followed by Jesse Colin Young & The Youngbloods with Grizzly Bear from their outstanding 1st L.P. The Beatles contribute with And Your Bird Can Sing. And Yes, Stevie, that's 2 guitars playing & don't be so hard on yourself because you could never quite get it just right with just your 1 guitar. And finishing off the excellent set & outstanding show with the great Musical Bed of Wild Weekend by The Rockin' Ramrods! Now there's a 45 that I must have played about 1000 times because I ended up buying 3 copies of it 'cause I wore them out. Yes-Rocky & Bullwinkle! Years ahead of it's time, Subversive as Hell, very very cool, & always struck me as strange that so many older kids enjoyed it so much. Truly both a Cult & a Religion! Just ask around to some of your baby-boomer buddies. Thanks for the flashbacks, Little Steven! Well. I guess that's it for another week. Fan Mail from a Flounder? Oh yeah, Stevie, truly an excellent anecdote about Jay Ward & Co. when they petitioned Moosylvania for Statehood right smack dab in the middle of The Cuban Missle Crisis in 1961! Talk About Timing! I wonder if Bullwinkle ever got a new hat. Oh Well, thanks for another fun Saturday Night, Little Steven, & for all who live IN & For The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You! Sincerely, EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

    "Heavy on the Ramones with a lot of who influenced the Ramones and who the Ramones influenced... that's what works for us"... couldn't have said it better myself Steven. That's why I'm listening. Man, I LOVE this station!

    You ever notice how much Little Steven sounds like Bullwinkle? Especially his delivery of the ADT commercials.
