    Let's see now! Heeeeeere's Johnny!(And Stiv). Show # 551. Thank You, Little Steven, for yet another 5 star Saturday Night that payed tribute to one major class act which would be Mr. Johnny Carson. Also with a nod to Mr. Stiv Bators. Mr. Late-Night T.V. 1st introduced by Groucho Marx & then doing 4,500 shows. Rather incredible-I'd say. Set 1. Kicking off with , as you said, Stevie, "One of the greatest songs ever", which was Anyway You Want It by The Dave Clark Five. Followed by a nice nod by The Beach Boys titled Johnny Carson. Sounds about right. Cool new stuff by Redd Kross with Stay Away From Downtown. The Shirelles kick in with the timeless classic Tonight's The Night. Closing out the 1st set with Midnight To Six man by The Pretty things from 1965. Set 2. Excellent tribute to the late Stiv Bators, who was vastly underrated except by the real Punk-Rockers in the know. Evil Boy by Stiv, which was one of the Greg Shaw singles. The Stones followed with I Just Wanna Make Love to You from their excellent 1st LP. Stiv with his group The Dead Boys with Tell Me. Very Cool new stuff by Thee Oh Sees with Flood's New Light which sound better with each play. Ready To Snap by Stiv's 2nd group which was The Wanderers. Closing out set 2 with Stiv's 3rd group, Lords Of The New Church with Open Your Eyes from 1982. We Miss You Stiv!! Set 3 paid tribute to Freak Of The Week-Tiny Tim. As you said, Stevie, Tiny Tim was indeed 'A Freak Among Freaks". Of course, Tiny Tim would get married on Johnny's show on 12-17-69. And like you said,Stevie, all Tiny Tim wanted was "Peace & Love & Making People Happy". The Who kick off the set with I'm A Boy, followed by Mr. Sonny Bono with Laugh At Me which was a direct reflection of the way people responded to Tiny Tim. but also, asyou said, "He Took It". Very cool new stuff by Aerosmith with Legendary Child & ending another cool set with The Yardbirds & the excellent Over Under sideways Down. Now That's Rock 'N Roll! Very cool sound byte by Edie Falco who said that The garage was her favorite show. Set 4. the Beatles with their 2 part Everly Brothers style harmony & Every Little Thing. Cool new stuff by The Hangmen with Homesick Blues. Quite rare track by The Byrds with Wait And See. And finishing off another very cool set with We Ain't Got Nothin' Yet which was a true Nugget by The Blues Magoos who I still find it hard to believe, came from The Bronx. Set 5. Bye Bye Johnny by Chuck Berry which is a rare tune that you will hear only in The Underground Garagr. Followed by the truly amazing Palmyra Delran with You're My Brian Jones & very cool sound byte by Palmyra who said to "SHAKE THAT FANNY". Mr. Joe Walsh, who is now related to Ringo Starr, with One Day At A Time which is from his fine LP Analog Man. And closing the set & the show with Johnny Cash & his version of Johnny 99. Closing out another fine show with your reflection, Stevie, that 'you only get 1 Johnny Carson & you only get 1 Stiv Bators". You also only get 1 Maharaj Of The Garage. And we appreciate you , Stevie, so very much!! Before I sign off, I just wanted to give my condolences to any victims of that horrible Storm Sandy. My prayers go out to you all & also hope that things get put back together as well as they can. I guess that's it fellow Under Ground Garage members. Peace Be With You All who live IN & For the Underground Garage! Next week I hope to see you in Halloween-A-Go-Go 2012! EEYAHH! SMRZ!!!

    Thanks, Steven. That generation of entertainers is sorely missed today. Frank, Deano, Bob, Milton, George, Jack, Steve Allen, Sammy, Lenny, Jonathan, Alan King and so many others.
