Show 720 - No Reason To Party So Let’s Party Anyway

Air Date:

Tuesday, 19 January 2016

It’s a new year and things are slowly gearing up.

The revolution continues within us and without us, and we have absolutely nothing to say because we are still burned from the horrors of 2015.

So you know what that means?

That’s right, we’re going to party in the Underground Garage this weekend for no apparent reason.

We’re going to be serving up some British Invasion coolness from Gerry & the Pacemakers, Donovan, and the Swingin’ Blue Jeans.

Find out what Garland Jefferys, Todd Rundgren, and Arthur Conley have in common.

There's no apparent reason

    Born in the 50's, bought Axamoxa in '65 and the Dead were the soundtrack of my life, literally.
    Even my kid's a Deadhead.
    Now Underground Garage gives me time to get in the Wayback Machine (we had the best cartoons!) and reflect upon the past.
    Frankly, the 21st c. doesn't impress me much.

    We need a constitutional amendment, "All members of the world community should listen to Funky Street at least once a week."

    Hello. Glad to be welcomed to your site. It's good to hear some Rock and Roll on the radio again. I look forward to your show every week. I'm not just posting some scanctimonious shit here, that is what ruined Rock and Roll. Most kids nowadays have never heard the sound and I feel kinda bad for them. It's like they have been neglected or something. At least once a week your show sheds some light on what R-n-R was. THANK YOU. Herbie Handgun.

    Boys (Beatles), My Sharona (Knack), Da Doo Ron Ron (Crystals) it's got my name in and a good tune. Funky Street (Arthur Conley) it's got the groove thang happening & Party Lights (Bruce Springsteen) Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin the River Tour with Bruce & the Band.

    Lucky enough to go to a show last night.

    Springsteen was great and his voice is better than ever. An incredibly tight unit and Steven's background vocals were tremendous. It was a smaller ensemble than he has been using as of late, but a big sound. Clarence Clements nephew is now on saxophone and does all of his uncle's parts, but without Bruce making a big deal of his presence. The only thing missing was Danny Federici's accordion, but every arrangement was extraordinarily precise. As always, he moves from song to song without delay. The set list is as you have read in the papers, but I really enjoyed the first half. He did the River album in its entirety and the musicality was remarkable, each song part of a bigger story. A record that is a joy to hear. When that part was over he simply said, "And that was the River. Let's keep going." Then he segued from hit to hit off many different albums, of course wonderful; but the River was a concert that had a uniqueness and seemed intimate even in the big auditorium.
