    Groucho Marx For President!

    • Steed Colliss

      Mooko Marx for President !!!!!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Thank You, Little Steven, for yet another update to another tribute to the one & on Groucho! Unfortunately, my radio station, WRSI, 93.9, Northampton, Massachusetts, jumped to last week's show,TV A-Go-Go,set 2! Bloody Wankers! Anyways, the cancer has not moved a whole lot in 3 years so here goes! The patented Ron Lynch method of 5 Cool ones. I'm Against it, so Set 1 goes to Chuck Berry's "School Days"! Yeah, Ring Ring goes the Bell! Set 2 goes to the old chestnut written by Gene Clark with The Byrds, "She Don't Care About Time"! Set 3 goes to The Kinks with "A Well Respected Man", because that's what I used to be! HA! Set 4 goes to Curtis Lee with "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" because it's a cross-over from Doo Wop to early Rock! Set 5! Well, I'm not going to Rack My Mind because Jerry Lee Lewis recently turned 82! WOW! The original "Wild One"! O.K. I just wanted to let people know that growing old ain't for pussycats, & neither is Cancer! Maybe next week I'll be able to hear the entire show! How Cool would That Be? Thanks again, Little Steven! To all who Live IN & For The Underground Garage! Oh Yeah, just one more thing. Tom Petty, IN MEMORIAM! Please Remember, Every Day Is A Gift! Life Is Real, Life Is Earnest, If You're cold, Turn Up The Furnace! EEYAHH! SMRZ!

    • Steed Colliss

      Hey !!! SMRZ'S back !!! And his front too !!!! How are ya, my brotha from another mutha ? Hope all is well... You missed Film Noir...

      • Robert P Smarse Jr.

        Thank You Very Much, Steed! Nice to be missed. I didn't miss Film Noir! I used to teach it! Would you like to know the difference between Classic Film Noir, Neo-Noir, & Retro-Noir? But I digress. Really kind of you because I never had a real brother, so brotha from another mutha suits me fine, especially with you. I hope that you have your Spread sheets ready for when I have to ask you for a recent up-to-date listing of most played tunes over 809 shows! HA! Take Care, Broski! It's Great to feel somewhat alive again! Peace!

        • Marlene Sullivan

          You are right about life being a gift...it's also a schoolroom with lots of tough lessons (if you're cool that is, which you are). The cool dead ones(people in Spirit form)press the following issue:LIFE IS SHORT, FIND JOY. I don't always find that information helpful but sort of agree with it. Oh by the way, Hi Robert! I missed you!

          • Robert P Smarse Jr.

            Thank You Very Much, Marlene! That's Very Kind of you! It feels good to be missed but even better to be Back! I've posted comments on Show # 810, San Francisco! too. Check them out! Again, Thank You! Certainly wise words well beyond your early age. It took me nearly 70 years to sort them out! See You tonight, ON THE RADIO! May Peace & Love Guide Your Path!

  • Steed Colliss

    Please note that in set 4, it's not Paul Revere and the Raiders' "Good Thing" that's played, but Dee Dee Sharpe's "Mashed Potato Time"...

    • Jim Brick

      I now wonder if anybody checks here, as that hasn't been fixed now as of the 12th - ?

      • Jim Brick

        It's probably because he's touring?

  • jcjohnson63

    Thanks again for posting another classic update! WOW! INHEAVEN have a real 90's vibe! COOL! Groucho is STILL the man!!! Peace,love and rock and roll! :)

  • Ron Lynch

    I just want to say the Garage has got a lot cooler due to the return of the one and only RPSJr. You will get all the prayers from all here in the Garage to kick the Big C into the other Universe.
    5 cool ones here. Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood (Animals) I pick this one cause my new 107 cubic inch feels like a animal when you crank it. Faded (Junkyard) NOTING FADED ABOUT THIS TUNE, ROCKIN, A Well Respected Man (Kinks) You might say I am getting Kinky cause I play a Kinks song called(Sunny Afternoon). Genuine American Girl (Alice Cooper) cool cool cool, The Seventh Son (Johnny Rivers) always like this one. Well in 1 month the better half has talked me into touring across the water. It's going to be busy with these stops, Chester, Manchester,Paris & London.
    Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

    • Robert P Smarse Jr.

      Thank You Very Much, Ron! Such Kind Words make me feel good. It's wonderful when you make other people Happy! I'm Kickin'! Hey, we both picked The Kinks & "Well Respected Man" from Set 3. So you're coming to Chester, Massachusetts, and than to Manchester, New Hampshire. That's where my dad was born. Oh, you must mean England. I See! I Can See For Miles! Just listened to Show # 811, Wild West! Take care, Ron. Be talking to you in the garage. Remember, "Never Trouble Trouble Till Trouble Troubles You"! Much Peace & Love To You, Broski!

  • Jim Brick

    Thank you again Steven, you are the best.
    I need to find out more about Dewey Phillips now.

  • Clifford Blau

    Inspite of what Steven said in the show, the name of that Chuck Berry song is School Day, not School Days.
