Show 482 - Godfather 2011

Air Date:

Monday, 27 June 2011

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Our summer celebration continues this week with a movie the younger generation needs to discover.

It’s called The Godfather, and it is arguably the greatest movie ever made.

We are going to jump into it this weekend with the Yardbirds, Spirit, Dion, Marvin Gaye, the Nazz, and Moby Grape.

Brand new cool stuff from New York’s Make Out, Chicago’s Candy Golde, Austin’s Moonlight Towers, L.A.’s Flogging Molly, Denmark’s Breakers, London’s Sails, and Spanking Charlene from the Lower East Side.

Come find out what Garland Jeffreys, Lillie Langtry, and Gordon Willis have in common.

It’s the only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio celebrating the greatest movie ever made.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Well, I was wondering which show was preempted for the Clemons tribute. Careful what you wish for... :(

  • Ron Lynch

    Cool stuff, all good Stevie.

  • Stiv

    Personally, I like "Goodfellas" better, followed by "Reservoir Dogs." "The Godfather" was cool, but it just doesn't have the same hold on me.

  • jcjohnson63

    i watched the godfather once.didn't understand all the hoopla! sorry. but i dig the music and this episode. iam more a hard day's night kinda guy!!!!!

  • BroadwayBill

    What happened to the Clarence tribute?

    I can't seem to find it in the archives.

  • BroadwayBill

    Okay, so I found it! I was looking for it all last week.

  • Sy Delgrado

    I listen on WXRT every week. You guys use to post a playlist here so I could follow along so I would be able to go buy the music after..but I can't find the playlists anymore since you re-did this site! Please tell me where you are hiding them, what section! Thanks.

    Great show as usual. This show spurred me to ask a question that I've been wondering about for a while.
    At the end of the show someone (sounds like Al Pacino) says "That's entertainment, that's entertainment". I don't recall Pacino saying this in a movie that i have seen, and i have seen most of his well known films. So is this Al Pacino, and if so what movie is it from? If not who is it and what movie is it from?

      mll, That quote is Robert DeNiro from "Raging Bull" when he's Jake LaMotta rehearsing his speech before he goes out on stage, way after his boxing career is over.

  • mll

    aah, thanks for the info. I probably should see that again. It has been many many years. Much thanks.
