Little Steven here with our weekly pop quiz from the Underground Garage.

What was the first important rock festival?

The Human Bee-In you say? Yes, that was first.

The thing in Central Park? Yes, that was second.

What was the first rock festival anybody remembers?

That’s right, the Monterey Pop Festival. Perhaps the coolest event ever in the history of the universe, and we are going to tell you all about it this weekend in the Underground Garage.

We’ll be playing lots of the cats who played there such as the Byrds, Johnny Rivers, the Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, Otis Redding, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Come find out what Buffalo Springfield, Ravi Shankar, and Janis Joplin have in common.

It’s the Monterey Pop Festival this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio. I’ll see you in the Underground Garage.

    The Underground Garage is the best thing ever!!

  • Steed Colliss

    Good show... Who cares if there are two Moby Grape songs in the same show ???

    Great new song from the Bayonets... Already part of my top five CSITWTW for the year, along with Kelley Stoltz'"Are You my Love ?"...

    You know what other song should be in that top five but hasn't made the CSITWTW yet ? "Run Now Baby" by Palmyra Delran and Bubble Gun... It's a crime it hasn't played yet in the Underground Garage...

    I live in the Cayman Islands and have only heard UG on terrestrial radio on select occasions since it started. So happy to have found the streaming archives!!! Most of this music was recorded a few years before I was born, but as Steve would say, who gives a shit? It's still awesome.

  • Chris Dougherty

    Moby Grape was such a great band. It's amazing how this festival had such an impact on the music of the late '60's and early '70's.
