Hey baby, Little Steven here with our Underground Garage pop quiz of the week.

What is the most important disc in the history of human kind?

The computer disc you say? The CD? The Frisbee perhaps? Those things in your back?

Absolutely not, it’s the 45, the seven-inch vinyl single, and we’re celebrating that little magic circle that changed the world this weekend in the Underground Garage.

Joining us will be Paul Revere & the Raiders, the Ramones, the Yardbirds, the Beach Boys, and the Shangri-Las.

Find out what Sonny Boy Williamson, Tommy James, and Chrissie Hynde have in common.

It’s radio’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party with Go-Go Girls.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

      • Steed Colliss

        Hello Michael,

        Thanks a million !!!!

  • Steed Colliss

    I think the correct title for the csitwtw is "It Is as It Was"...

  • MK

    The most important disc of all time might be "You Keep Me Hanging On" by the Vanilla Fudge. Second would be "Let Me" by Paul Revere and the Raiders.

  • Brian Davis

    My Fav. 45 I owned "Dead Man's Curve" Jan & Dean!!!!
    Thanks for The Sonics Tickets Sat.night at 1st Ave. Mpls. Mn.!!!!

    Draggin’ The Line (Tommy James),Shame On Me (Cocktail Slippers), About The Weekend (Jellybricks), Luckiest Man (King Khan & the Shrines) & Cherry Cherry Coup (Beach Boys) 5 very cool ones, the last one means we will be hot rodding soon. Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

  • James E Clarke

    Loved the show, especially the phonograph girl and the 45 RPM spindle inserts.

  • littlebigman

    It's a given that the tunes are all amazing (it IS called 'Little Steven's Underground Garage' right?) ..so..how about some self referential indulgence and a rebirth of the Disciples of Soul???? Been 3 decades...and the world can sure use some REAL soul these days...
    Silvio? You listening???

  • jcjohnson63

    great classic update! always a pleasure to hear new fleshtones,baby!!!best single? TOO MANY!!! my first was let it be by the beatles.thanks for posting this show!!!!!!!!!

  • markalbertsad

    the cover for this show (621) gives me the big #ooh la la

  • slimify

    Hat's off to the sound bite from "Diner" between Shrevie and Beth - I had a thang for Ellen Barkin :)

  • slimify

    Sorry - have to continue my above thought...Shrevie to Beth just after Lil Steven's sound bite cuts off (one of my favorite moments in the movie!) Shrevie sez somewhat agitated, "The first time I met you? Modell's sister's high school graduation party, right? 1955. And Ain't That a Shame was playing when I walked into the door!" --- love that sheet!

  • bill dutra

    Incredibly hip !! Kinda like a history lesson during a frat party . Party on Stevie !

  • Gary Gassman

    Sorry, Steven. Fact check. Curtis Mayfield did not die when the lighting boom fell on him. He was paralyzed from that incident in 1990. He passed in 1999 from complications due to diabetes which developed after his accident.

  • greggie434

    Jackie Kennedy By Ingrid Olava is really GREAT!!!!!!!!!
