Hey baby, Little Steven here, and this weekend in the Underground Garage we are celebrating Pirate Radio, where it all started back there in old merry England with a crazy guy on a pirate ship.

Joining us will be Jeff Beck, the Hollies, the Searchers, and Johnny Burnette & the Rock n’ Roll Trio.

Brand new music from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Charles Bradley & the Menahan Street Band, Prima Donna, the Jellybricks, Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, the Trolley, and the Cocktail Slippers.

I’ll see you this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

That would be the Underground Garage.

    Little Steven's Underground Garage represents Rock and Roll Immortality. Great show Little Steven AKA The Big Guy. Thanks.

  • Jason Wendleton

    Totes excited about this weeks show.

    SHIVER ME TIMBERS!! Thank You so very much, Little Steven, for The fabolous SWASHBUCKLING Journey across the Radio Waves. Is it possible to give you 6 stars? You said it yourself, "nothing but masterpieces today." Not a clunker to be found. A great tribute to a truly watershed to rock that was PIRATE RADIO!! YEAH! BABY! Outside of the Legal Limit of your MIND!! How ironic! Broadcasting the Brit Invasion back to England outside the legal limits offshore. Thank so much to Ronin O'Reily who was responsible for the very much needed Radio Caroline!! Too bad it would have to be shut down by Parliment and the tight-arses Sir Alistair Dormandy. They should have made him walk the bloody Plank over shark-infested waters! Lotza great stuff to cover so here goes. Outstanding 1st set highlighted by Procol Harum's Shine On Brightly, The Hollies great Look Through Any Window, (Have you got the opening riff yet,LS?), and The Ramones excellent take of The Trogg's I Can't Control Myself. Moving along with Hi HO Silver Lining by Jeff Beck, Boom Boom by The Animals, I Need You by The Kinks, and the absolutely fab I Can Only Give You Anything by Them. Extremely rare tunes that you only hear on your show include I See The Rain by Marmalade, Through My Eyes by Eddie Phillips and the incredible Creation, He's Got Something by The Great Dusty Springfield, and the very rare Four In The Morning by The Youngbloods. New tunes by The Trolley, Chevelles, Charles Bradley, and Cocktail Slippers carry the torch into the present. Did you get a chance to see the film Pirate Radio(2009) which was a Brit.-French-Us-German production? It had a so-so script but the music was non-stop excellent! It starred Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Count. In The UK, It was titled The Boat That Rocked. Bill Nighy, who has also been in all of The Pirates Of The Caribbean films, was also in it. I would give it 3 stars for the spirit and the music. I did miss Mr. Pirate Keith Richards on the show tho. Shiver Me Timbers, L.S., are we all out of RUM? Thanks once again for making my Sat. Night all Right For Dancing!! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

    The Pirate Radio reminds me of another Irishman in the 40's
    that got a Radio transmitter on the shores of the Miramichi River in New Brunswick Canada and broadcasted mysteries of local legends and ghost stories, my father Reg Lynch.
    Heart Of Gold (Charles Bradley) very cool cover of Neil's song, another modern gear head.
    The part about Jeff needing all the silver to build the Hot Rods was very cool.
    Pretty Little Angel Eyes (Curtis Lee)I think this is in the Christine movie too, classic song.
    Ringo got a little help from the right friends ( Joe Walsh) with Slow Down, like it alot.
    I was driving today for about 4 hrs and listen to Wrecking Ball on a continuous basis, what can I say I just like it.

    Thanks, Stevie

  • jake

    that marmalade song is now on repeat ! great job

  • Mark Sangerman

    It feels great! Thank you for the free stream - it's truly appreciated. A great show. The first Procul Harum song takes me back, but it's an extremely current sound. Have a good day.

  • Katie Wais

    Yay! Go, Jellybricks, go!!

    Also love the covers of The Troggs and Neil Young!

  • greggie434

    Look through any window, can't get that song outta my head!

  • jcjohnson63

    once again another classic update. but aren't they all? of course! is there anything that charles bradley can't sing? seriously!!!! how do you keep finding all these cool NEW bands? and people keep saying that young people make lousy music.my guess is they don't listen to LSUG!!!! and i keep telling them to tune in!!!!!!! rock on!!!!

  • pjweldon

    Always some gems in show. I keep adding to my ipod based on these shows. "Slow Down" was interesting. What about original by Larry Williams -- or any others by this genious songwriter.

  • larry morphis

    More great music and great commentary! Keep it coming.
