Show 624 - The Week That Was

Air Date:

Monday, 17 March 2014

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.

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.

    Great show as usual...
    Wow ! Six songs played that are in the top fifteen of all time played...
    Why not play "Thirteen Women" from time to time ? Either Bill Haley's version or the Renegades...

      Steed, Have you ever heard Danny Gatton's version of Thirteen Women? Muy bien!

    About The Weekend (Jellybricks), I’m A Rocker (Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band), Rock Around The Clock (Bill Haley & the Comets), Get The Hell (Supersuckers) & Not Fade Away (Rolling Stones) 5 very cool ones. Just got back from Kansas warmer temps & good people down there. Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

    far be it from me to disagree with Silvio...er..Stevie..but I think he missed out on his 'greatest moments in rock history'...may i be so bold as to suggest his own "Sun City" as an addition to the list? While it may not, in and of itself, have ended the scourge of apartheid, it most certainly helped, and all the while exemplified all that was best about the 'spirit' of rock and roll..much like Allan Freed himself.
    To paraphrase...there's 2 things that do well no matter the times...certain aspects of show business, and this 'thing' of ours.
    ..Out of the darkness...rock on, Brother Man..

    One of the drawbacks of playing a repeat show is Steven can't point put the special anniversaries as they pass, but this past March 6 was the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones releasing their first single in the US. But at least he played the song: "Not Fade Away".
