Show 572 - The Week That Was

Air Date:

Monday, 18 March 2013

Hey baby, Little Steven here, and this week in the Underground Garage we are celebrating all kinds of Rock n’ Roll events, including the very first Rock n’ Roll show ever, and the very first Rock n’ Roll hit song as the theme of a movie ever.

How did the kids react to that?

Oh, very calmly. They just ripped the seats out of the theater when they heard it.

That’s right, and joining us for the party will be Chuck Berry, the MC5, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Beatles, the Stones, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

Brand new music from the Young Sinclairs out of Roanoke Virginia, the Nomads out of Solna Sweden, the Woggles from Atlanta, the Strypes out of Ireland, Palmyra Delran from the Lower East Side, and Mark Lindsay has a fantastic new single.

Come find out what Riff, Action, A-Rab, Ice, Baby John, and Anybodys have in common.

It’s the teenage rampage and the birth of Rock n’ Roll this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I will see you in the blackboard jungle, also know as the Underground Garage.

    Doesn't the song for the Slinky toy sound like "Anthony Boy" ?

    Thank You Very Much, Little Steven, for yet another stellar 5 star Saturday Night that celebrated ROCK N' ROLL! Yeah-Baby! Also, Thanks to The Administrator, for getting the show up into The Archives within 48 hours. GOOD WORK! Show # 572. The Week That Was. How appropriate. My comment is EXACTLY 51 years to the day of that great Moondog Coronation Ball! Better be a good one. Set 1. How about some Teenage News by Sylvain Sylvain which is then followed by the Dovells with You Can't Sit Down. And those 10,000 teens couldn't. Even Alan Freed, himself, totally underestimated the power of this new Rock N' Roll! The Beatles promise that It Won't Be Long. And it certainly wasn't! Nice new stuff from Palmyra Delran with Shy boy. Randy & The Rainbows give us the excellent Denise which helps bridge the gap between Doo Wop and future Rock n' Roll. That Blue Collar band, The Strypes, deliver with Blue Collar Jane, which displays how well the boys have been paying their dues. Ending the perfect 1st set with the incredible Arthur Conley with Funky Street from 1968. Set 2 opens with some excellent comments on the very cool movie "Blackboard Jungle" from 1955, with Rock Around the Clock, which, as you said, Stevie, was the very 1st Rock record to reach #1. Also significant to note that the date was ALSO March 21st, which was exactly 3 years to the day after the Moondog Coronation Ball! Coincidence? OR NOT! Set 2 opens with that great Jet Song from "West Side Story". Yeah-Baby! The TEENAGERS have arrived! In Full Force! My favorite Yardbirds tune, which was Happenings Ten Years Time Ago, is next. The ONLY single with BOTH Jeff Beck & Jimmy Page playing together. And what are they laughing about? Sounds CRAZY MAN! Fabulous new stuff from Mr. Mark Lindsay with Like Nothing That You've Seen. You & Bruce with the rest of The E Street Band give us I'M A Rocker from 1980. The Young Sinclairs come all the way from Virginia to give us Hurt My Pride, which sounds like it came from 1966. Mr.Chuck Berry closes out set 2 with Anthony Boy. Extremely important set 3 intro by you Stevie, which schools us on the importance of turning the 45 over to play Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & the Comets. And now we have our very 1st Rock N' Roll # 1. Rebellion now Reigns Supreme with the help of all those crazy, far-out teenagers. I do remember jumping up & down in my seat in the movie theater but I never slashed the seats with my switchblade. The vastly underrated MC5 give us Shakin' Street from 1970. The Woggles give us Baby I'll Trust You When You're Dead from their excellent new release "The Big Beat", which I just picked up last week and recommend it for playing at any partys like the one I'm having tonight. By the way, ALL Underground Garage members are invited and the Go-Go dancer who broke my kitchen table 2 weeks ago WILL be returning, as well. The truly majestic Mr. Gene Chandler further helps bridge the gap from Doo Wop to Rock N' Roll with The Duke Of Earl. And The Who close the very important 3rd set with Call Me Lightning from 1968. Set 4 opens with the coolest song of the week by Wyldlife which would be Saturday Night. Your favorite Shangri-las tune follows with Heaven Only Knows from 1965. Moving forward with Donovan with Jeff Beck who are looking through crystal spectacles and the incredible Epistle To Dippy. Closing out set 4 would be Smokey Robinson & The Miracles with the excellent Going to A Go-Go from 1967. "Doncha Want To Go"? O.K.-Stevie! The Moment Of Truth! 10 Most Important Moments in Rock N' Roll! All the way from The Moondog Coronation Ball from 1952 to Woodstock in 1969. Hard to argue with you, Stevie. But you even admit cheating, especially with all of those ties. C'Mon! 6-D? But I'm not gonna argue with Mr. Maharaj Of Garage. Excellent list. But I count closer to 20 instead of 10. But I digress. As you said, "Stevie's Top Ten and Then Some". Yes 61 years and counting on and on and on. Rock N'Roll Will NEVER DIE! Musically, we get The Rolling Stones with Not Fade Away which is followed nicely by a nice sound byte by Mr. Ray Davies who leads The Kinks with See My Friends from 1965. Could be my fav Kinks 45. The Nomads come all the way from Sweden to give us Miles Away, which they certainly are. And that very happy couple, which would be Ike & Tina Turner close out the set and the excellent show with Finger Poppin'. Which brings us to the end of another excellent show. VERY IMPORTANT in view of the many milestones that we have crossed over the incredible 61 years. I think that this show is a very MANDATORY SHOW that needs to be played EVERY YEAR! But that's just Me. Thanks again, Little Steven, and for all who live IN and FOR The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You! EEYAHH! SMRZ!!

    Hearing Chuck Berry doing an Italian-American accent may have made my week.
