Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Come join us this weekend as we celebrate the Wrecking Crew.

They are the wonderful session guys that are all over your west coast 60s records.

The documentary is out on DVD and we feel very good about that.

Joining us will be Paul Revere and the Raiders, Jan & Dean, and Ike & Tina Turner.

Come find out what Richard Harris, Little Richard, and Mike Nesmith have in common.

I’m going to tell you right now, it’s the Wrecking Crew.

Come join us in the only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

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

    Always fascinating to listen how the music is developed. The backup musicians and producers just don't get the credit they deserve and it's a little sad and frustrating to see how technology has cheapened the process today.

    Not playing!

    Cool show... Carol Kaye looks like the Carol Cleveland of music... Without her, the Wrecking Crew, or the music business for that matter, would not have been what it was...

    Cool coolest song in the world with the Go-Wows' "Gimme Some Fun"... Reminds me of the song playing the first time that Harkin skies down the slopes with Dan O'Callahan's gang in the 1984 "Hot Dog, the Movie"...

    My son finished reading all the Harry Potter books not too long ago and watched all the movies... When I told him that the first song in the last set was sung by the Dumbledore of the first movie, he went "Wow !"...

    Finally, "Good Vibrations" will always vibrate in my heart when I think of Amy, that girl from New York I had met one night on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ back in 1986... I never saw her again... Yeah, I guess New Jersey really is the center of the world if not the universe...

    Keep the shows coming, Stevie...

    Disregard previous comment--I had to turn off filtering for some reason but the player is working.

    Yay! The documentary is now available on Netflix instant!

    So grateful to have the "backstory" to all the music we know and love. Thanks for the show and the documentary.
