Hey baby, Little Steven here, and this weekend in the Underground Garage we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Santana, the Premiers, Manic Hispanic, Richie Valens, the Electric Prunes, the Ramones, the Hollies, and the Byrds.

    Another FabFine show - Orson, Oldham, Alice, & Grace attend the same Cinco de Mayo PARTY! Who needs another bad GATSBY flick when there's another great version of "When Tears Go By"

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Thank You Very much, Little Steven, for yet another 5 Star Saturday Night Special, and thanks to The Administrator-for getting it up in The Archives before this week's show-GOOD WORK! Cinco De Wonderland combining Cinco de Mayo with Alice In Wonderland, as well as Mr. Orson Welles! What a
    Great CELEBRATION! Let's See Now-Show # 579-CINCO DE WONDERLAND! Set I! Opening with You Can All Join In by Traffic & their 2nd L.P. With Dave Mason. Excellent opening Musical Bed by Ray Barreto with El Watusi-Santana joins in with their 60's vibe Everybody's Everything. And We ARE!! The Absolutely wild Farmer John by The Premiers! WOWEE! ZOWIE! What A PARTY! The screaming in the background adds that Latino Garage Rock! Great Stuff! Manic Hispanic with Rudy Cholo which they borrowed from Rancid who was/are a Clash influenced with Ska overtunes. Richie Valens with his Latino Rock Anthem- Cmon Lets Go closing the 1st set which celebrated Cinco de Mayo. Set 2! Alice In Wonderland goes even more Psychedelic! Nice reading by you, Uncle Stevie. It never sounded quite like how I remember it! FEED YOUR HEAD-Opening The Psych Set with The Electric Prunes with their masterpiece-I Had Too Much To Dream Last Nite! Yeah Baby! Forgot to mention the Psychedelic Musical Bed-Section 43! Really gets you in the mood. Nice cool new stuff by Palmyra Delran with Someday soon. After Alice chats with The Mad Hatter & The Cheshire Cat which leads us into Mushrooms with Gracie Slick with The Jefferson Airplane-Yes it is time to FEED YOUR HEAD! Wyldelife demands The Right. Closing the Psychelelic set 2 with The Beatles with their Incredible I Am The Walrus! Yellow Matter Custard and such. Every Smokes Pot! Sit You Down Father-Rest You. B Side to Hello Goodbye. Oh Yeah-I forgot-There Are NO B sides here! May 6 incident by Keith Richard waking up to hear himslf playing the raw mix of the Satisfaction Riff. Interesting note by you, Little Steven because that is the most famous 60's riff in Rock N'Roll. Thus opening set 3. 1965! The Late but Great Johnny Thunders puts the Works down to play Born To Lose-After The Heartbreakers-The Trashed Romeos beg Just Hold It-which they borrowed from Lenny Bruce. You crack me up Stevie whenever you talk about Lenny. The Temptations proclaim I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You).Closing the 3rd set with Mr. Bob Dylan & the Hawks before they became the Band scream Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? Quite Strange that it was Bob's only 45 with Robbie Robertson & Co Also surprising that didn't chart. Ending the Lack of Satisfaction set. Set 4. The coolest song of the week is As Tears Go By as done by The Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra. You know that tune has frequently brought a tear to my eye as done by Marianne Faithful. Next up-Quite possibly the best Harp player ever being Little Walter's Nobody But You. The Ramones proclaim a Real Good Time from 1987. cool new stuff from John & Brittanay who wanna Start Sinning. Mark Linday's sound byte leads to the 1967 hit Him Or Me by Paul Revere and the Raiders.Nice Surf M. B. by The Belairs with Mr. Moto. Set 5 featured your Freak Of The Week-Mr. Orson Welles who both dabbled with Macbeth before his ground-shattering Radio Broadcast on 10-31-36-Yes HALLOWEEN! "War Of the Worlds"! The Hollies salute "Citizen Kane" with King Midas In Reverse. 100 Proof Aged In Soul think that Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed. The Byrds contribute their rare but cool track It's No Use(Saying) which you only hear in the Underground Garage. The always wild Stiv Bators close out the Excellent show with I Am An Evil Boy. I do feel it is significant to note that Citizen Kane was recently replaced by Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film Vertigo as The All-time # 1 Movie as voted by Film Critics-if you're into that kind of stuff. Also would like to make a correction about Johnny Thunder's Born to Lose was recorded while he was still with The Heartbreakers from their L.A.M.F. Album. Boy o-boy, Little Steven! What a very cool show that covered so much important territory while including such excellent tunes. So know I enjoyed the show on a Friday Night while I Look forward to Saturday Night's show. Thanks again, Little Steven, for such a fun with such cool tunes and being schooled about Mexico having the history of the Most Corrupt Government in History. Me. I like to stay away from Politics as well as Politicians. Can't Really Trust Them. But that's just Me. I guess I'll sign off for this week. I hope all you Mothers out there have a very cool Mother's Day Weekend! And you know who you are! To All Who Live IN & FOR-The Underground Garage-Peace be With You! And Don't forget Your Moms! EEYAHH! SMRZ!!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Everybody Smokes Pot! I forgot to mention your truly excellent sponsor, UAVIP, United Association of Veterans In Piping, which is helping to fill the void to give training and helping to find much needed jobs for our Veterans when they return from their tours of duty. A much needed and Excellent program. Also, I would like to extend a sincere HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of the moms, as well as all of the women who are like a mom. Remember, if you didn't have a Mother, then there wouldn't be a YOU!! Thanks again! Sincerely, SMRZ!!

    • rivardm

      Bravo! I second the Mother's Day Shout Out! I lost mine 6 years ago so I spent a good portion of the morning reaching out to friends and families that are Mom's to spread the love. All my best to LSUG & the great listeners...especially the MOM's.m - Big Mike

  • greggie434

    GREAT show Steven, I just picked up my Blu Ray "Not Fade Away". Can't wait to watch it. There's also another one, "Down The Shore", also with James Gandolfino, gotta get this one on line, they did not have it at Best Buy....

  • seanaxmaker

    "King Midas in Reverse" is a rather witty pick for Orson Welles, I confess, but I think you'll agree that while he downsized his budgets after "Kane," he continued to create brilliant films and acclaimed stage works.

  • Ron Lynch

    Very good sets Stevie. Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? (Bob Dylan) wicked classic and timeless piece. Start Sinning (John & Brittany) very cool song, if they have more like this they rock. Comes n’ Goes (Connection) another cool one here. Come On Lets Go (Richie Valens) he rocked very good back then. Some Day Soon (Palmyra Delran) nice stuff here. Hold It Baby (Trashed Romeos) these guys kick it too.
    Thanks Stevie, keep rockin were all with ya.

  • greggie434
