Show 506 - Keith and Frank

Air Date:

Sunday, 11 December 2011

Hey baby Little Steven here.

We have a very special week this week in the Underground Garage.

We are celebrating two birthdays of two of the coolest people in the world, Frank Sinatra & Keith Richards.

What do they have in common?

Almost everything as a matter of fact.

Helping us celebrate will be the Pretty Things, Ike and Tina Turner, and the Jeff Beck Group.

Brand new music from JP Soars, the Launderettes, Chuck Prophet, a new album from Robbie Robertson, and so does Nils Lofgren.

Come find out what Bill Wyman, David Ruffin, and Nancy Sinatra have in common.

It’s the two coolest birthdays ever, Frank & Keith.

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

I’ll see you in the Underground Garage.

    Thank U very much, Little Stevie, for another show that deserves 5 stars for both it's diversity as well as it's coolness. The new conversation with Nancy re: the television show with Frank Sinatra and Elvis was killer. Having Andrew Loog Oldham reading from his great book about Frank meeting both Keith and Andrew himself was very very cool. Snippets of your great interview with Keith was also out there daddy-o!! And the great tunes This Town-Frank, Jailhouse Rock by The Jeff Beck Group with incredible vocals by Rod Stewart, David Ruffin with My Whole World Ended, only to be rounded out with the great 12x5 set by the Stones. What a Capper!! Elvis, Frank, Keith, Andrew, and, of course you, Little Steve. Now with your Archives, every night is Saturday Night. Thanks Again! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

    When you hear 3 OUTSTANDING tracks in the first 15 minutes, you KNOW you're in for a great show. I LOVE this show. OK, I'm a huge Southside Johnny fan, but Pretty Things and JP Soars blew me away! Thanks Little Stevie!

  • Patrick Graeenberg

    Hey Stevie, I just wanna say thanks, man. This show is the best thing I have ever heard on the radio in my life time.
    Keeping rock and roll alive is a noble mission. Rock on!

    Beach Boys, the king of Hot Rod songs. Frank had a very cool style of singing, but Frank in Never so Few with McQueen shows his talent of acting also.
    Excellent interview with Keith, the dude has a relaxed cool
    attitude He also has acting talent.

    Thanks, Stevie

  • Rick Hale

    Please! Where do I get a copy of the Prissteens' "Sorrow"?

  • Jamie Smith

    Hey Little Steven, Thank you for a great radio program. Your stories about this music are a delight to listen to, i can't wait for Sunday nights. (That's when your show is on here in Green Bay, Wis. [WZDR 99.7 FM].) Oh! by the way, the music is pretty bitchin' too.

    Thankx again, and keep er' light!!!

    Some good music in this show. Listen close to Beck's guitar in "Jailhouse Rock" - he is never boring. I liked the set lists better when they linked to the song's source. All the better if you want to buy the song. As of this writing, missing from the set lists are: the Reg's song in Segment One, the Stone's "Little Red Rooster" in Segment Three, and "Don't Drag No More" in Segment Four.

  • vargas77

    Outstanding Show! Another winner. Loved every set. I would have included a couple more Frank songs, "Summer Wind or Come fly with me" and Keith's "Connection" but I'm not complaining. Keep up the great work. Lovin the tunes in New England.

    P.S. Maybe a Beach Boys 50th show ????

  • jcjohnson63

    another classic and it did NOT CRASH!!!!! :O

    i will say i am not a fan of sinatra but otherwise a very cool show.

  • Mark Puertolas

    I took my Aunt and Uncle to see Frank live at Radio city Music hall around 30 years ago.. Never seen so much fur and diamonds in my life.. He put on a wonderful show for which I will remember as long as I live.. Also have seen Keith live with his mates many times.. Great show Stevie ,good memories


    When people wonder why I'm so damn cool.I tell them that LITTLE STEVEN IS MY ROLE MODEL.Thanks a lot BIG GUY.

  • pjweldon

    Great show. Liked Nils Lofgren. Jeff Beck, too. What about their acknowledged guitar hero, Roy Buchanan?

  • Bill Lindley

    always enjoy the show but cannot find it in my area

  • rivardm

    Rick - please post if you find "sorrow" anywhere. I have been looking as well. I will pass on the Beach Boys though.

  • Caleb Chase

    That description of Frank Sinatra was awesome. Phenomenal writing.

  • rickmoller

    Hey, baby. Only THE coolest freak in the world could play the coolest songs in the world, especially from two of the the all time coolest cats. Thanks again and god bless you, baby!

  • larry morphis

    Another great show Steven. Good on ya brother.

  • Steed Colliss

    In set one, Sir Reg's "Sign of the Times" is not listed...
    In set two, the Kinks' "Milk Cow Blues" is not listed...
    In set three, the Stones' "Little Red Rooster" and Keith Richards' "Time Is on my Side" are not listed...
    In set four, Susan Lynne's Don't Drag No More" is not listed...

    Nevertheless, in addition to Ron Lynch's comment about Sinatra's acting, let's just say that Keith's Captain Teague isn't so bad as well... "You're in my way, boy..."
