What do Buddy Holly, The White Stripes, The Shangri-Las, The Beatles, and The Ramones have in common? Little Steven’s Underground Garage!
In April of 1954 “Rock Around The Clock” was recorded by Bill Haley and the Comets, and three months later, Elvis Presley recorded “That’s All Right Mama”. From these small steps, and the help of other pioneers one of the most important and influential cultural forces over the past half-century was created, Rock and Roll.
Fast forward to 2002 and Stevie Van Zandt launches Little Steven’s Underground Garage, his nationally syndicated Rock and Roll radio show. Each week Little Steven takes audiences on a two hour trip through all 60 years of Rock and Roll, and it’s roots.
Not only does The Underground Garage play the coolest Rock records ever made, but it has helped introduce over 700 new bands throughout the history of the show. Over 40% of the format dedicated to new music and emerging artists.
Rolling Stone Magazine called the radio show “mind-blowingly great,” adding that, “Quite simply, Underground Garage is the most exciting thing to happen on rock and roll radio in years.”
“It’s the best Rock and Roll Radio show in the world. Period.” – Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day
“It’s the first thing I listen to in the morning. It always sounds good late at night. One of my favorite things to do is listen to it on the way to band practice because I get inspired.” – Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam
“The coolest DJ in the country. A proud throwback to the late-night hipster jocks of long-gone 1960’s and ’70s FM Radio.” – MTV
