03.04.01 Episode 100:Yeah Baby, Yeah!
And They said it wouldn't last . .
This week you, the listeners, will weigh in with your choices for The Coolest Song In The World for 2003 and who you've crowned Most Cool. We're going to play the Top Ten of Last Year as decided by listener votes from all over the planet.
In addition, since it is Oscar Weekend, we are examining the Academy Awards through the Underground Garage Camera Lens and answering the really important questions such as:
Why are they called the Oscars? Did Bette Davis name them?
What actor’s career consisted of 5 movies, all 5 of which were nominated for Best Picture?
How did the Searchers get their name?
Who played piano on "Wild Horses" and why?
Will Todd Abramson get a cellphone?
What's Garland Jeffreys up to?
We're not going to tell you which bands are on the show this week because we're not giving anything away this week.
All we can say is
Forget the Red Carpet, take a ride on the Magic Carpet baby and come fly with us.

Show 101 - ON THE ROAD Show 101  -  ON THE ROAD

03.04.07 Episode 101:On the Road
We're celebrating Jack Kerouac this week, ahem, like without whom, you dig?
As Steven says, 'jack would devour, make love to, and push to new limits a language called English which he wouldn't speak until he was five years old. ' Indeed, "on the road" would change the world and our consciousness forever.
We're spinning some road songs and some stories about and by jack himself. The atmosphere he was born into - the legendary artists and writer who became his greatest friends - the birth of the beat generation.
You'll also hear a world premiere - three songs from an upcoming album by some folks we've dug before who live rather far away. A place where the water runs down the drain backwards.
Contemporary garage from the likes of Jarvis Humby, Gluecifer, Courtney Love, Manic Hispanic, the Charms, the Chesterfield Kings, Back in Spades, the Vines, and the Defectors.
So snap those fingers, and blow baby blow.
"It was drizzling and mysterious at the beginning of our journey. I could see that it was all going to be one big sags of the mist. "Whooee!" yelled Dean. "Here we go!" and he hunched over the wheel and gunned her; he was back in his element, everybody could see that. We were delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one and noble function of the time, move."
- Jack Kerouac, On the Road

We're completely fed up with this long, cold winter so we thought we'd revisit a place where it is currently summer: literally the other side of the world, Australia and New Zealand!
We shall seek the answers to cosmic questions like. . .
How was Australia discovered, like man, what's the real story?
Is it true that not one member of the legendary Aussie legends the Easybeats is actually from Australia?
Where is Peter Garrett and what is he doing?
What teen dance TV show did kids in oz watch in the 60's?
Who wrote that way cool riff in the film music of master and commander?
Along with Aussie and kiwi legends like the Easybeats, the Saints, Toni McCann, the Stems, the Bee Gees, Midnight Oil, the Lime Spiders, Radio Birdman, the Purple Hearts, Simple Image, the Scientists, the La De Das . . .
We also tune in to groovy contemporary sounds from the likes of the Chevelles, the d4, the Vines, Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts, Jet, the Hekawis, and Mr. Brown.
No worries, mate, we can guarantee you that no kangaroos were tied down during the recording of this show.
Pass the tim tams and turn the radio up loud.

Episode 109: Out Of Our Tree
The flowers are blooming. The birdies are tittering. Winter’s chill has lost its sting.
Spring is upon us!
So come with us in the Underground Garage to a land where the sun never shines, the coffee is never regular, and people like it when it rains . . . . . . And on yeah, they practically invented rock and roll as we know it!
It is the Birthplace of Garage Rock.
We’ll have the Wailers, the Sonics, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and of course the Kingsmen.
New northwest cool cats like the Model Rockets, Minus Five, the Supersuckers, and the Boss Martians.
And look who else is avoiding those cancer causing rays of the sun – it’s the Kinks, it’s the Stones, the Ramones, and the Stooges. Not a George Hamilton tan in sight.
It’s Portland. It’s Tacoma. It’s Vancouver. It’s Seattle.
It’s dark, it’s wet, it’s cool!
We’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.
