More, More Louie, Louie

Reader/listener Geoff passed on this link to a BBC Music Club documentary on Louie, Louie, Louie and the G-Men, which kinda made me wish Dreamtime had the resources of the Beeb at our call, too.

The show is hosted by "Little Steven" Van Zandt, who seemingly like every other rocker in the world, has his own radio show too, although none are as good, or as quirky, as TTRH. Little Steven's Underground Garage (warning: link will take you to an audio Flash site which - while work-safe - could be embarrassing) is a pretty good show, with a nice mixture of new and old music. A nice representative example is Episode 268 (scroll down a bit):

It is May in America. Do you know what that means? That’s right, it’s Bob Dylan’s birthday, and helping us celebrate in the Underground Garage this weekend is Gary U.S. Bonds, the Beatles, the Turtles, the Faces, Jason & the Scorchers, and of course, the Byrds. We’ve got the newest, coolest music being made on the planet from Peachfuzz, the Len Price 3, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Contrast, Mary Weiss, the Woggles, and the White Stripes. Find out about Bob Dylan’s garage band in high school. Find out who his favorite bands where when he was a juvenile delinquent. And find out what Al Kooper, Steven Stills, and Mike Bloomfield have in common. It’s Bob Dylan’s million dollar bash and rock and roll dance party, this weekend in the Underground Garage.
