Show 739 - Decoration Day

Air Date:

Tuesday, 31 May 2016

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

This is a very, very, very exciting week.  It is the official end of winter as we come out of the Underground Garage and into the sunlight.

We are celebrating with some surf music this weekend.

We are celebrating the Rolling Stones coming to America.

We are celebrating James Bond.

Joining us will be the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, the Impressions, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Rivers, and the Monkees.

Come find out what the Surf Bunnies, Little Walter, and the Monkees have in common.

It’s Decoration Day, a.k.a. Memorial Day, this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

Let the summer-long party begin.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage

    5 cool ones here. I Get Around (Beach Boys)played this when I hit the streets in a souped up Vega. Decoration Day (Sonny Boy Williamson) The Buddy Guy bar in Chicago is a very cool place to go, they treat you like your in a bar in the afterlife. The Man Who Got Away (Bruce Springsteen), Fool For You (Impressions) & Secret Agent Man (Johnny Rivers). Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

    My "This week's show" is always a week old (getting the May 30th show as this weeks) Anyone that can explain/help would be appreciated. rickpucko@yahoo.com

    Another great show! Bought the new Monkees CD and it is fantastic! Glad to see you are featuring it/them. And THANK YOU for making the show available on your website. My local radio station saw fit to unceremoniously dump the program a couple of weeks ago - totally screwing up my Saturday nights! I only wish the current show would be available sooner. Any chance you might eventually have an app available for Fire HD or Windows Phone?

    • Sam Favate

      There already is a very excellent app for show. It's in the App store.

        Or as a podcast from rockfm, a Spanish site... Though they do skip shows from time to time...
