Show 781 - The Week That Was

Air Date:

Monday, 20 March 2017

Hey baby, Little Steven here, and this week in the Underground Garage we are celebrating all kinds of Rock n’ Roll events, including the very first Rock n’ Roll show ever, and the very first Rock n’ Roll hit song as the theme of a movie ever.

How did the kids react to that?

Oh, very calmly. They just ripped the seats out of the theater when they heard it.

That’s right, and joining us for the party will be Chuck Berry, the MC5, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Beatles, the Stones, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

Come find out what Riff, Action, A-Rab, Ice, Baby John, and Anybodys have in common.

It’s the teenage rampage and the birth of Rock n’ Roll this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I will see you in the blackboard jungle, also known as the Underground Garage.

    Doesn't the Slinky song sound like "Anthony Boy" ?

    5 Cool ones plus one. Teenage News (Sylvain Sylvain) we still want good news, I’m A Rocker (Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band) and the plus one is Dirt Road (Southern Culture On The Skids), Saint Valentine’s Day (Little Steven) cool people, Epistle To Dippy (Donovan) & Not Fade Away (Rolling Stones) on the movie Christine, too cool of a song. We are in springtime but stuck in winter mode. Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.
