    Well, here is my weekly report on the top-played artists an the underground garage: Beatles-Rolling Stones-Beach Boys-more next week.

    • Steed Colliss

      Without even counting, you should add Bruce Springsteen, the Ramones, Bob Dylan, the Byrds, the Dave Clark Five, Donovan, the Animals, the Kinks and the Who...

      However, still no Palmyra Delran and Bubble Gun as CSITWTW...

      • jcjohnson63

        yeah he really should play them!!!!!!

      [NB: Copy of a comment I left on Show 640's page. Added here since the discussion there seems to be ended.]

      The number of plays a song gets can be a little misleading because some shows get repeated often and others less often, so any songs in those shows get a lot of plays. Tina Sugandh's "White Christmas (Parvati's Pleasure)" is a perfect example. It only has ever been played on the two Christmas shows, but those get replayed every year so the number of times played overall is quite high.

      To get a different perspective on who is most played, I have put together a list of the artists who have had the greatest number of different songs played on the Underground Garage. Here are the top ten:

      1. The Rolling Stones (109 different songs played)
      2. The Beatles (103 different songs played)
      3. The Ramones (64 different songs played)
      4. Bruce Springsteen (with and without the ESB) (58 different songs played)
      5. The Byrds (36 different songs played)
      6. The Kinks (31 different songs played)
      7. The Who (29 different songs played)
      8. Bob Dylan (with and without The Band) (29 different songs played)
      9. The Yardbirds (26 different songs played)
      10. The Beach Boys (25 different songs played)

      Not far off the top ten list are two bands that are noteworthy because all of the songs of theirs that have been played were released in the 2000s. The Woggles have had 23 different songs played (released between 2000 and 2013) and Cocktail Slippers have had 20 different songs played (released between 2003 and 2014).

      It's a lot harder for new bands to get a lot of different songs played now because pretty much the only way to get played now is to have a new song picked as the CSITWTW. In the early days of the show Little Steven played a lot more current music whether or not it was a CSITWTW pick. Most songs by The Woggles and almost half the songs by Cocktail Slippers were never CSITWTW picks. So it's not likely any band will challenge these two for most songs played of post-2000 releases.

        David White. Your updated list by group certainly puts a new perspective on tunes played un the UG. Nice spin. Excellent research, as well. Anyone who know your work can expect nothing less. Thanks for your fresh perspective on the on-going evolution of the UG. I think that as we move forward, we shall hear more new tunes by 3 different sources. Jack White, The Black Keys, and Ghost Of A Sabre Tooth Tiger, aka GOASTT! Time Will tell! Thanks again, David, for all of your valuable research. Peace Be With You. SMRZ!
