Show 646 - Ed Sullivan

Air Date:

Monday, 18 August 2014

Think of all the hosts on TV, game show hosts, variety show hosts, and who was the most bizarre?

Yeah he was pretty weird…I can see that…But no, it was Ed Sullivan, and we are celebrating him this week, and it’s not a coincidence that we are also celebrating the Zombies.

Joining us will be Bo Diddley, the Doors, the Stones, Elvis Presley, Curtis Mayfield, Donovan, and Cheap Trick.

Come find out what Slim Harpo, the English police force, and a Rhinoceros has in common.

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

    Southside Johnny actually had a stack of "Hearts of Stone" CDs for sale at his merch table this year - it was great to have it again after I lost my lp 25 years ago...
