Show 516 - A Vagrant Winter

Air Date:

Tuesday, 21 February 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Has winter finally come to wherever you are?

Well we have the show that will go down like a nice warm mug of hot chocolate with marshmallow fluff, and a little sambuca. 

We are celebrating some of the coolest people ever this week like Mamie Van Doren, Peter Fonda, and George Harrison.

Joining us will be the Yardbirds, Bob Seger & the Last Heard, Steppenwolf, Marvin Gaye, Donovan, and the Rascals.

We have some very cool new music from the Black Keys, Ringo, the Cocktail Slippers, the Boo, and the Trolley out of Milwaukee.

Come in from the cold, and join us in those warm sexy bed sheets.

We’re waiting for you in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

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

    Yes indeed. December's Children are most definitely Orphans. Thank You, Little Steven, for helping to keep us warm through this cold vagrant winter. Lotza stuff to cover so here goes. Great way to start with Liar Liar by The Castaways who were from Minnesota where the winters are always cold-freezing cold! Happenings Ten Years Time Ago which was the only single with both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, is also my fav song by The Yardbirds. I still have the 45 with the great picture sleeve with both Beck and Page on it. Dylan's Tombstone Blues always brings a cold blast down my spine. Great stuff about Mamie Van Doren who is indeed Garage Royalty! Also an excellent anecdote re: Peter Fonda and John Lennon who was told what it was like to be dead. Great new stuff from The Trolley and The Black Keys. Continue on with Goin' Back by The Byrds, Don't Bother Me by The Beatles, and Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man. By the way,LS, I have George Harrison's birthdate as Feb. 25, not the 24th. I do hate to question anything from the Maharaj of Garage. Please forgive. Oh yeah, I was in a garage band in 1965 and 1966 called December's Children and we did manage to win one Battle Of The Band in summer of 65! All in all, LS, thank you so much for yet another 5 star show! Peace be to you and to all members of The Underground Garage. Until next time. SMRZ!!!

    It's been over 2 years since I've listened to your show because my local radio station stopped carrying it and I always had trouble getting the web stream to work. Your tech support people helped me get it set up & I've just listened to "A Vagrant Winter." I can't thank you enough, I want to listen over & over again! I particularly liked the new Springsteen song "We Take Care of Our Own," it's good old fashioned rock n roll. Loved all the old stuff too, it's why I love the show. We miss you in Honolulu Stevie, keep rockin' on!

  • Ron Lynch

    Cool to hear Bob on the air, Tombstone Blues a timeless track.Still like the Slow Down from Ringo.
    I get caught up in Bruce's, We Take Care Of Our Own. The song holds alot of power.
    Checked out Mamie Van Doren site, she is a true knockout. Steve McQueen dug her alot.
    Yardbirds track was cool.
    Peter Fonda in Easy Rider is a classic, it would have been good to see him in the latest Ghost Rider. Born To Be Wild a very cool song. That song and Bruce's picture on the Human Touch album with his bike & dog set my interest to buy & ride a harley.
    Thanks, Stevie

  • JamesSchuster

    Great Rascals track I had not heard before - lets here more of those.

  • jcjohnson63

    another classic! what can i say?

  • kb8uls

    Service Magic! Yes!

  • Chris Dougherty

    Hasn't been that rough of a winter around here, Steve, but that doesn't change the fact this was a great show as always. The nugget from the Rascals was great to hear. The tribute to George was wonderful and heart felt. By the way can I pick my Twinkie up now?

  • Caleb Chase

    Another Great show!! I love your opening monologues...great writing. Thank you Little Steven.

  • ron forte

    I click on a show and nothing happens

    • greggie434

      Ron, do U have real player on your Comp? All I do is left click on the listen to show tab and then another window pops up and after 10 seconds or so it starts to play....

  • greggie434

    Menahan St. Band was so so gooooood! What a GREAT song

  • greggie434

    Where is Show # 517 ????

  • pjweldon

    Never heard of Palisades or their song here. What a gem.

  • musicd77

    another great show!!

  • Tim LaCroix

    I'm glad to see that somebody appreciates Bob Segers early material. I think that Ramblin Gamblin man and Mongrel were two of the best albums he ever made. I also think that he had one of the most fascinating careers in american rock. It would be really cool to hear a show with interviews from Bob and Punch talking about those early days. .
