Show 718 - 1958

Air Date:

Monday, 04 January 2016

Hey baby, Little Steven here. This weekend in the Underground Garage we have a fantastic, wild Rock ‘n Roll dance party going on.

We are going to talk about how 1958 was the year that Rock n’ Roll almost stopped.

We are going to talk about the coolest band in England that never made it in America.

We are going to talk about how Jeff Beck got in the Yardbirds when he wasn’t their first choice, second choice, or even their third choice.

Joining us will be the Blues Magoos, Junior Walker and the All-Stars, Johnny Burnette & the Rock n’ Roll Trio, The Ronettes, The Ramones, and Sonic’s Rendezvous Band.

Come find out what Sonny Boy Williamson, the New York Dolls, and Arthur Conley have in common.

It’s the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

Two hours of nonstop rock.

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

    FWIW the Cherry Drops' song is actually two songs in one - the first :36 seconds is the brief opening song from their new album, "Bliss", and the rest is "Far Out!". This is also the case when the song(s)get played on the Sirius/XM LSUG channel.

    Great show as always Steve. I saw Jeff Beck live recently in London UK with ZZ Top !!!....the Yardbirds were supercool.
    See you in London with Bruce in June at Wembley.
