    "I have had some of my most rewarding and informative conversations with dead people. I'm not kidding. Most people are far more clear in their thinking, far more profound in their insight, after they're dead. They make more sense. They were probably equally intriguing when they were alive but who notices? Death has a funny way of adding an exclamation point to the sentence that was your life. It makes life an easy-to-understand three-act sitcom rather than an ongoing miniseries. You don't know whether the characters are important, who's going to come and go, what plotlines are going to stick - life is unfocused, it's unclear, it's confusing. And we're too busy and self-absorbed to think about our own lives, never mind someone else's. In the final analysis, in regard to the quality of one's work and one's general social standing, let's face it - life is...overrated." That's some classic Little Steven wisdom.

    Happy 600th show ! I still have some 35 or 40 shows to listen to... By the way, I reserved a copy of "Duck Soup" at my pblic library... I should get it saturday... Also, i know it's not related, but there must be a movie class somewhere in town where "Dead Man" has to be viewed, because all copies throughout the Montreal public libraries are out...

    • Robert P Smarse Jr.

      Hey Steed! How are things up North? I hope that you are well. Regarding "Dead Man". Are you speaking of the 1995 film that starred Johnny Depp, Iggy Pop, Billy Bob Thornton, Crispin Glover, John Hurt, and in his last film ever, Mr. Robert Mitchum? Soundtrack by Neil Young. Directed by Jim Jarmusch. It is known as a "Psychedelic Western", even though it is in black and white. It is a fav of mine. It cost 9 Million to make but only made just over 1 Million in box Office. Amazon Marketplace is selling it at starting at about 3-4 bucks. The film is unlike any other. Check out the details at Wikipedia.org Some people loved it, like me, but others hated it. I've seen it about 10 times and get more out of each screening. In regards to "Duck Soup", I've seen it at least 20 times and freakin' love it! I always watch it on New Year's Eve, as well as whenever I need to laugh or get high without chemicals. Regarding "Dead Man", it's possible that they are teaching it in some film course, as you mentioned. Take care. Peace!

      • Steed Colliss

        Also, Neil Young's music for the movie is excellent... Also, in regard of the playlist, I didn't know Jerry Lewis sang "Wild One"... I always thought it was Jerry Lee Lewis...

      • Steed Colliss

        Hey Robert,

        Just remembered that a one time, a co-worker lent me his copy... And he was the bass player of the Chains (coolest song in the world of show #38, the song was "Nervous Breakdown"... It was also in shows 40 and 48, but you'll have to go to show 211 to hear it because the first hunnerd shows are not there yet, though I did listen to #1 to 50 and 78 to 94 from the old website way back then...)

  • Alan Russell

    Please resume listing the music beds used during the shows. They are half the fun!

    • Steed Colliss

      I second that emulsion...

      • Gary Gassman

        Me three!

        • Mooko Marx

          Me four, please!

          • Steed Colliss

            For the Playlists, you can check the old Groucho shows (138, 339, 391, 444, 496 or 548)...

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Yes, I totally agree. "Duck Soup" will get you very high without the use of chemicals. Thank You Very Much, Little Steven, for yet another 5 Star Special! Just a few things, however, need to be addressed. We all miss the musical beds! Yes, they are being played, but they are not being listed. Next, Groucho Marx turned 123 years old on Oct. 2, not 122. 10-2-1890 to 10-2-2013 = 123 years. Last time that I checked, anyways. Also, the narrative by Little Steven after set 4 was from last year's show #548. You mention Redd Kross, The Beach Boys, and Suzi Chunk & Groovy Uncle. That was from 2012's tribute to Groucho. Still love that tribute from set 5 to D.J. Dewey Phillips from Memphis. He was one Rockabilly Madman! To Be sure. I know that you are very busy so's I'll let this one slide by. But I shall be listening closely this Sat. and Sunday Evening to be sure that we have moved into 2013. Love the new stuff by King Khan & The Shrines, as well as Joan Jett & The Blackhearts new L.P. Everybody go out and buy both of those L.P.'s. that is MANDATORY! You know with the mess in Congress, it might be a good idea to let Groucho run the country. After all, he did rule the kingdom of Freedonia. Oh yeah, just one more thing. Lydia, The Tattooed Lady is no longer with us since Heisenberg put something in her drink. Now, she is really Breaking Bad! Well, I guess that's it for now, because, as Groucho said "Hello, I must be going". Take Care everybody, and I'll catch you next week in the ultimate coolest place in the World. To all who live IN and FOR The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You! EEYAHH! SMRZ!

  • Ron Lynch

    Alot of cool ones on this show. I'll pick 5, School Days (Chuck Berry), You Must Be Crazy (Jake Clemons), Shakin’ Street (MC5), Any Weather (Joan Jett & the Blackhearts) & You Put The Flame On It (Charles Bradley).
    Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

  • Jen

    Really love hearing Joan Jett and Soraia in the same set together, diggin the female rockers! Hope to see more of Soraia in the future!


    Thank you so much for continuing to play tracks from my favorite local band, SORAIA!! I have been a fan for many years and it's so good to hear their music on the radio, especially on UG, which I love to listen to. Thanks Little Steven!!

  • Jennifer Johnson

    I agree with Jen -- totally loving the chick rockers :)

    And I'm also with Cheryl-- SORAIA is one of my favorite East Coast bands. Thanks for playing them; it is truly awesome to hear them on the radio!

  • Terri England

    Love the Joan Jett song...and always happy to hear me some Soraia! Little Steven, if you like Love Like Voodoo and Runaround you should give my favorite a listen - Wild Imagination. I absolutely LOVE that song. SORAIA ROCKS!
