    Your Scorsese bits are fantastic and this is an excellent set of songs. Inspired!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Another great show and an excellent tribute to the best director in the world!! I'll never forget the image of Johnny Boy dancing in front of the car before he gets in to meet his maker to Mickey's Monkey. A true genuis. He should have at least 3 Best Picture-Best Director Oscars!! Scors eh?ese's use of the music is an excersise in Genuis!!! The opening witrh Be My Baby for Mean Streets(1973), was incedible. And the thing about paying pennance on the streets! So you just turned 69 eh? Marty, may live forever!!! The new stuff Zero, Black Spartacus, and Doggin', really could end up in a future Scorsese flick. Marty-thank You so much and Steve thank U for another great show. Best ever about Scorsese-so far!!!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    I hope that I am allowed a re-write. I was in a Johnny Boy state of mind when I wrote yesterday. Anyway, Scorsese should have won Best Director Oscars for Taxi Driver(1976), Raging Bull(1980), aswell as Best Picture, and Goodfellas(1990). Scorsese understands the impact that rock music can play in a movie. And penance is indeed, payed in the streets. Happy 69th birthday, Marty and may you live forever through your great films!! Thank U so very much!! Peace! SMRZ!!!

    Furthermore! Deniro and Scorsese, a match made in Cinema Heaven. Just got through watching George Harrison: Living in the Material World for the 3rd time. Scorsese does it again with another masterpiece. The documentary is truly jaw-dropping!! The way that Marty directed it. You get clips of George that brings him back to life. George was somewhat of a pack rat in that he stored pictures and other momentos in bureaus and other places. Scorsese, with the help of Olivia, George's widow, put a nearly perfect four hours in what is the most intimate look yet at George. Proof yet again that Marty is a master at combining Rock with Cinema. Marty brought George back after 10 years and brought him back to life. What a GENUIS!!! SMRZ!!!

    An excellent set of songs in this episode but I think one of the most endearing songs from a Scorsese film is "Layla" by Derek & the Dominos. The scene with the first booming piano chord occurring simultaneously with the appearance of the pink Cadillac followed by finding all the bodies in "Goodfellas" is a scene which is emblazoned in my mind when the piano exit to "Layla" comes on the radio. But for the most part, another quality stay in the Underground Garage!

  • gerrald stangret

    Does anyone know when stevens new tv series "Lilyhammer" is going to be broadcasted Thanks.

  • vargas77

    Excellent sets! I agree Layla is iconic and should have been in a set. I think there was also a great Cream song in Goodfellas, White Room? One got by you Stevie!

  • Ron Lynch

    Very Cool stuff Stevie. Tell Me,Day Drunk, Trick Of The Wrist, Baby Let Me Follow You Down, Temple Beautiful, Hoochie Coochie Man, Leader Of The Pack, Zero, Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine and Doggin'
    And Martin's, my favorite EASY RIDER
    Thanks again Stevie

  • pjweldon

    Very cool theme. Is there a show dedicated to "The Trip"? Plenty of great artists on board there to flesh out program.

  • Kevin O'Neil

    I just saw "Hugo" with my 20 year old son. We both loved it. Who would have thought Marty would make a family friendly film,and brought cinema pioneer Georges Méliès back to life as a living, breathing human being? Brilliant.

    BTW, I also liked how Scorsese minimized the 1974 Harrison tour in the biopic. That show was a drag. I saw it twice in SF and Oakland and was just too young to be so disappointed. The rest of the memories he brought back in the film were very enjoyable.

  • jcjohnson63

    another classic.

    btw- it seems the player ALWAYS CRASHES when i listen!!!! what's up with this??????



  • greggie434

  • Duane

    Hi there,
    The show is great, of course. I was a little bummed to not hear a John Lennon rip through 'Well, Well, Well.' Oh, well.

    OH! Do you continue doing the show while you are touring? (I am writing to you, Mr. Van Zandt, as if you might read this. I know that you are busy, and might never see this though.) If you do....an interesting story might be about how the show is produced on the road, if you haven't done so all ready.

  • sara mahmoud

    This is the second show I'm listening to and so far I love it.
