You know what week this is, don’t you?

That’s right, mama mia, it’s Mother’s Day.

Joining us will be such mother lovers as Elvis Presley, Elvis Costello, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Moby Grape, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

Brand new music from Tom Jones, Capsula from Argentina, the Cocktail Slippers, and the Dave Clark Five.

Come find out what the Runaways, Little Walter, and the Rutles have in common.

We have more records by the Mother’s Of Invention than you have heard in the last ten years.

It’s a mother loving good time this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

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

    MAMA MIA! MAMA MIA!Thank You so much, Little Steven, for a very heartfelt tribute to all thing's MOM! Gotta give you 6 stars for this baby. Set 1 highs include Have You Seen Your Mother Baby?, who looked quite strange on that picture sleeve back in 1966. Mama Said-Shirelles(1961), Elvis with That's All Right Mama and Goose Step Mama by the Rutles. Set 2 was an excellent tribute to Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention. I'll never forget playing Freak Out! LP back in 1966 while living in the dorms at Salem State College, Ma. Never heard stuff like that before. Especially Motherly Love, Hungry Freaks, Daddy, and My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama, in a GOOD way, of course. Weasels Ripped My Flesh actually came out in 1970. Set 3- Great tribute to Wavy Gravy, whose typewriter was used by Bob Dylan. Yeah-Breakfast in bed for 400,000. The Hog Farm, now 80,000 Eye surgerys. What a big heart for the former Hugh Romney. Musical highs include Everybody Loves A Clown-Gary Lewis & The Playboys, What's So Funny 'Bout Peace,Love & Understanding by that other Elvis-Mr. Costello. Gotta have some Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes) by Dee Dee Sharp, and closing with Tears Of A Clown by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. Moving on to set 4. Bad Boy-Beatles, Tell Me Mama- by Little Walter who had just left Muddy Water's Band to venture out on his own in 1953. Finishing with Hey Grandma by the vastly underrated Moby Grape. No cursing for 24 hours, now, for MOM! Set 5 was a well deserved tribute to All girl Mothers of Garage Rock. Kicking off with the groundbreaking Goldie & Gingerbreads formed in 1962 and featuring the very 1st Girl group to play all the instruments. They were lead by Genya Ravan, who was born in Poland in 1942 whose birth name was Goldie Zelkowitz and moved to the Jewish ghetto in New York's Lower East Side. She dropped out of high school and ran with teenage gangs. In 1969, she changed her name to Genya Ravan. She also sang lead vocals for Ten Wheel Drive. Moving on to The Runaways, Go Go's, and The Pandoras, who ruled the West Coast Strip in Hollywood. How about The Psychedelic Sluts? I can't seem to track down their bootleg. Don't Forget-Call Your Mother!! It was nice to hear a couple sound bytes from your Mom, Little Steven. Now she's up in Heaven watching over you-just like mine. Great new stuff by Tom Jones with Evil/Wild Child channelling Howlin' Wolf, Jim Morrison, and written by Willie Dixon. Tom's got his stones back with ruff vocals with production help by Jack White, whose 1st solo release Blunderbus is still in my heavy rotation. Great new-old stuff by Dave Clark Five with Got Love If You Want It. Nice to hear intro by the late great Mike Smith who sang lead vocals for DC5. New Cocktail Slippers and Argentina's Capsula with Wild Fascination. "I made it Ma-Top Of The World!" Kudos to you, L.S., for the great picture and 2 page article of the Brit. mag Uncut-June issue-pages 110-111, of your 3 hour show with Bruce on Good Friday-April 6 in Madison Square Garden,NYC. Occupy New York! The Boss crowdsurfs, dances with his MOTHER and brings the gospel of protest back to the Big Apple!! Don't forget to call your mother!! As Norman Bate's said, "A Boy's Best Friend Is His Mother." They were VERY CLOSE to each other. Please go check the wine-cellar! Thank U so much, Little Steven, for another great Sat. Night! Let's take it off with Al Jolson's MY MAMMY!! Peace Be With You,L.S., and to ALL who live IN and FOR The Underground Garage. See you Sat. Night and we should also be re-visiting SGT. PEPPER!! And Just One MORE Thing. EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!
