Show 555 - Thanksgiving! 2012

Air Date:

Monday, 19 November 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here. Who is the only country in the world full of fat people?

That’s right baby, you’re looking at it, and we’re about to get fatter because it’s Thanksgiving this week.

We are celebrating no matter how many steroids we eat in them turkeys, or diabetics we create with all them carbs.

We’re partying baby, with Little Eva, the Beatles, Buffalo Springfield, Rufus Thomas, the Byrds of course, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Traffic, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Come find out what Sarah Josepha Hale, Rufus Thomas, and Charlie Brown have in common.

It’s our lean mean dancing machine called the Underground Garage. I’ll see you this weekend.

    GOBBLE-GOBBLE-HEY! GOBBLE-GOGGLE-HEY! Let's see now. Turkey-mashed potatoes-stuffing-apple pie. I get it. It must be time for Thanksgiving. Last week we paid our penance for Scorsese. This week we must give THANKS for THANKSGIVING! Missed it last year due to the Robbie Robertson special. O.K. Show #555-THANKSGIVING. Turkey filled with buckshot back in 1621. I guess that you could say that we've come a very long way since then. Musical Highlights. Set 1. Little Eva with Let's Turkey Trot. The Beatles chirp in with And Your Bird Can Sing. AND YOU CAN'T HEAR ME!! The Bird by The Time with a great deal of help from Prince. Geez-I wonder if THAT bird was PURPLE. The Buffalo Springfield contribute with Bluebird. Not Purple! From 1967 & also from their best LP-Buffalo Springfield Again. Do The Funky Chicken by Mr. Rufus Thomas. Now that's chicken-NOT turkey! That Bird thing is still thematic, though. Yeah-Baby!! Set 2. Now where would we be without Sarah Josepha Hale? She wrote the lyrics to "Mary Had A Little Lamb". FREAK of the week. She was monumental to making Thanksgiving A National Holiday! That's right. She begged & lobbied Honest Abe Lincoln until he had NO CHOICE but to do so. What a Woman! Now where is her monument because she certainly deserves one? The Coasters open the set with Just Like Me with lyrics borrowed from Sarah Josepha Hale. Cool new stuff by The Setting Son with Eat My Fear. The Byrds join in the beautiful but rarely played The World Turns All Around Her from 1965 & written by both Gene Clark & Michael Clarke. More cool new stuff by Thee Oh Sees with Flood's New Light closes out the 2nd set. Set 3. The Ramones munch in with Everytime I Eat Vegetables (It Makes Me Think Of You). The very cool Dee Dee Sharp with the excellent Mashed Potato Time which always gets me in the mood for Turkey. Some sort of Conditioned Response there, I would say. More cool new stuff from Redd Kross with Stay Away From Downtown. And yet again even MORE new stuff from Death By Unga Bunga & I Want To go Wild which I totally understand from their name. Finishing out the "THANKFUL" set with Glad All Over by The Dave Clark Five from way back in 1964 which, as Little Steven says, is one of the greatest records of ALL time! No argument from me on that one, Stevie. Set 4. Coolest song of the week by The Doughboys & It's A Cryin' Shame. Paul Revere & The Raiders with Hungry, which is what I ALWAYS am around Thanksgiving. More cool new stuff by Nick Waterhouse & Some Place. Traffic, which we always have tons of that day before Thanksgiving, with Coloured Rain. The Woggles just have to Take It To The People. Closing out another excellent set with the very cool 100 Proof Aged In Soul & Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed. Better check-out those sheets. Ya Never Know! Set 5. Dedicated to The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Great lesson about the evolution of the Parade, Stevie. Thank You Very Much! Funny Freak Parade by The Ultimate Spinach from 1967. They were part of the Bosstown Sound. I used to see them play free concerts on The Boston Common. Very Cool-Indeed. Jimi Hendrix Experience with You Got Me Floatin' from 1967's Axis-Bold As Love. Yeah-Baby! Gotta have The Fantastic Johnny C with Boogaloo Down Broadway. The Coasters contribute their 2nd tune to the show with Charlie Brown. Where's That Great Pumpkin, Charlie? "Why's Everybody Always Picking On Me"? The Young Rascals finish another excellent 5 star special show with I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore. I saw The Young Rascals twice at The very cool Mountain Park Ballroom in Holyoke, Mass., both in 1966. A Very Good Year, Indeed. Of course, that song was so popular that we used to sing "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out Your Hole Anymore". Now THAT would ALWAYS get a very BIG reaction every single time that we would dare to sing it! Yeah-Baby! I want to give you an extra special "Thank You", Stevie, for such an excellent 5 star special Thanksgiving show, which also happened to fall on your 62nd BIRTHDAY this year on November 22. HAPPY BIRTHDAY-STEVIE! And remember-you're not getting OLDER- but You're only getting BETTER!! THANK YOU! THANK You! THANK YOU! Your show brings so much more to my life! Well, I guess that it's about time for me to sign off. Until next time, Peace Be With You-all members who live IN & For The Underground Garage! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!
