Air Date:

Monday, 12 March 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here with our Underground Garage pop quiz.

What was the book that most directly lead the way, at least spiritually, to the 60s.

That’s right, Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, and we are going on the road this weekend.

We are taking route 66 across the country with the Rollings Stones, the Bob Seger System, and the Ramones.

Brand new music from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Prima Donna, Bruce Springsteen, the Cocktail Slippers, and the Trolley.

Come find out what Dee Dee Sharp, Taj Mahal, and Jan & Dean have in common.

We are going on the road with Jack Kerouac in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

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

    Like-Cool-Daddy-O!! Far-Out-Steveareeno-Another 5 Star Very-Very Cool Show. Yeah-On The Road. What a Classic! Where would we be without the Beats. Great theme of cruisin', driving, and moving. Hard to beat The Stones & their live version of Route 66. I'm A Roadrunner by Jr. Walker, Have Love Will Travel by The Sonics, and Ride by Dee Dee Sharp, as well as Locomotion by Little Eva keep the Party moving. Great Musical Beds which include Straight No Chaser by Miles Davis, Bongo Rock by Preston Epps, and Beat Generation by Bob McFadden, all tie in the theme perfectly. Let's keep going here. Theme from Route 66 by Nelson Riddle, Drive My Car by The Beatles, Jenny Take A Ride by Mitch Ryder & Detroit Wheels, who I saw at The Mountain Park Ballroom in Holyoke, Ma. in 1965 and at The Salem, Ma. Armory in 1966, and Highway 61 Revisited by Dylan. Can you beat that imagery? But The Second Mother Was with The Seventh Son and they were both out on Highway 61!! Excellent new stuff with Stay Away by Charles Bradley, I Woke Up by The Trolley, and Love Me Or Kill Me by Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Did you know that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was the title of a neo-noir from 2005 that starred Val Kilmer and Robert Downey Jr? By the Way, since we are talking cinema here, on Wednesday March 7 Turner Classic Movies screened Untamed Youth(1957) with Mamie Van Doren at 6AM and Having A Wild Weekend(1965) with The Dave Clark Five at 6PM. Catch Us If You Can is the title of the very cool song that you played by The DC5. You could have played The Move with I Can Hear The Grass Grow which would have fit in nicely. Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs! I think we missed Maynard G. Krebbs! I've really been enjoying Wrecking Ball by Bruce. I think that the last three tunes, Rocky Ground, Land Of Hope And Dreams and WE Are Alive make for the perfect Trifecta! Let' See Now. I was to young for The Beats but I was a Hippie, a Punk, Power Pop, New Wave, 90's Alt.-Rock, Alt-Country and because I do not acknowledge RAP, I am now An Adult-Hipster-Senior-Citizen! WOW! So That's It!? Thank you so much Daddy-O for another 5 Star Sat. Nite. EEYAH!! SMRZ!!!

    luv ya stevie

  • Ron Lynch

    Some cool car songs, very cool because we had a freak 70 degree weather here today and out came the Bullitt.
    Easy Money (Bruce Springsteen) another song that hits home.
    Highway 61 Revisited (Bob Dylan) is just not reproducible, he is to cool then & now. Nice to hear Bob on the air here talking.
    Thanks Stevie

    • greggie434

  • michael hoffer

    Steven, Saw Bruce and E-street band twice in '75. Painters Mill Music Fair and outside venue Carter Baron Ampitheatre in DC, where it poured down rain in the middle of the show. Do you remember? Once in '77 at Cap Center and again in '78 at the same venue. Then again in '08 and '09 in Hershey. Amazing but 30 years later the same energy was still there. Mike
