Hey baby, Little Steven here with our weekly Underground Garage pop quiz.


What was the first Rock n’ Roll record?


You think about that, because we are going to talk about it this weekend among other extraordinarily important subjects.


As usual, we are joined by the greatest musicians of all time including the Beatles, Howlin’ Wolf, the Yardbirds, the Ramones, and Ike & Tina Turner, and we have the best new music in the world.


Tune into find out what Robert Johnson, Herman’s Hermits, and Little Eva have in common.


It’s the only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio, baby. I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.
