Show 468 - That Was The Week That Was 2011

Air Date:

Sunday, 20 March 2011

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

What were the 10 coolest events in Rock n’ Roll history?

We will give you a minute to think about that, and reveal them this weekend in the Underground Garage.

If you want to drop us a note at mail@undergroundgarage.com, we’ll see who gets closest, and give you a cookie or something.

Helping us count the votes will be the Beatles, the Animals, the Byrds, the Tokens, the Shangri-Las, and the Kinks.

The coolest new music in the world from the Woggles, the Breakers, the Deadbeat Poets, R.E.M., the Dahlmanns, the Biters, and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.

Join us this week to hear Chuck Berry sing Italian, Fred “Sonic” Smith to speak Motown, and Curtis Lee to speak Arizonan.

It’s the only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio, and I personally wouldn’t miss it for the world.

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

    What a hassle to get logged in, especially after already having a log in name/pw. Finally did it, though. Love the show but what happened to the set list?

  • Athena Peaceriver

    This is always one of the five-star shows, not only for the music but for the historical background :-D! I'd recommend it as an introduction to "what the Underground Garage is all about" for anybody you want to turn-on to the show!I"m still LMAO about "the Blackest White kid in Beverly Hills" and "Rock Around the Clock" being "intended as a fox-trot" (I always thought that *all* early uptempo rock'n'roll was intended to be jitterbugged-to).

  • alison

    Wonderful pic of Bill Haley and His Comets! I would say hats off to legendary music photographer, David Redfern, for capturing that moment, way back when...

    Great show, by the way.

  • Steed Colliss

    In set 1, the Beatles' song is "Eight Days a Week", not "It Won't Be Long"...
    Also, the Rodeo Queens' "Depression Times" is not played at all in the show...
    In set two, R.E.M.'s song should be removed from the playlist...

  • Robert Strzempek

    Another great show!
    working my way through ALL the archives. Its a mission of the rock and roll heart.
    Love ya Little Steven! Keep on Rockin'
