Hello fellow teens
Avatar 3:03pm zivilars:

After a whole decade of only listening to this show in the archive, finally listening live! favourite show on WFMU, nobody can beat Bill's set lists!
Avatar 3:03pm zivilars:

Have fun everybody!
  3:04pm John from Florham park:

Hey zivilars
Avatar 3:05pm zivilars:

Hi John, enjoy the show!
  3:05pm John from Florham park:

I do every Sunday
Avatar 3:07pm zivilars:

@John: I never really discovered WFMU as a radio station, only knew about Teenage Wasteland which I already listen to for years in the archive. Now that I finally devoted more time to check out WFMU, I discovered so many good shows that, at the moment, I am listening like a junkie the whole day
Avatar 3:08pm zivilars:

And what a great show also "The Glen Jones Programme" is! Makes the PERFECT double feature together with "Teenage Wasteland"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm adampsyche:

hi bill kelly i love that song and have never heard the non-english version of it thank you! (mendicino)
  3:09pm MrPFlyer:

haven't been on wfmu live stream for a very long time. Thank you for your show
  3:09pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars you should check out the internet only streams, lots of fantastic music on there and great chatters
Avatar 3:10pm zivilars:

@John, I know – LOVE Ichiban and Sheena's Jungle Room!
  3:11pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars check out the drummer stream too
Avatar 3:15pm zivilars:

@John: Definitely! So much music to listen to, not enough hours a day ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Sid:

Clean those Denons! (Or whatever CD players FMU is using these days).
  3:17pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars just have to be very choosy when you want to listen to the shows
Avatar 3:22pm zivilars:

@John: There are simply so many good ones ... :) Teenage Wasteland probably still stays my favourite, though, all killers, no fillers
Avatar 3:26pm zivilars:

If I remember correctly Bill said that his show here on WFMU even was the inspiration for Little Steven's "Underground Garage" channel on SiriusXM
  3:27pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars after this show is terese love listening to her, on the drummer stream on Saturday there is Gina Bacon with someday matinee from 3 to 5 pm which has live stuff, plus on Monday night she cohosts a shoe called big planet noise from 9 to 11
Avatar 3:27pm zivilars:

Little Steven took "Teenage Wasteland" as a model for this channel with the punk / 50s and 60s – again, only if I remember correctly, but I think so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Sid:

Penetrators and baseball. Perfect together.
  3:28pm John from Florham park:

@zivilars the only thing I listen to on SiriusXM is deep tracks
Avatar 3:28pm zivilars:

@John: Definitely will listen to those other's shows, though Terese will be too late for me to listen live – will be midnight by then here :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Sid:

Little Steven thanked Bill at the end of the Underground Garage FM radio show for the first five years or so, right at the end. Made me think higher of Steven that he knew of and paid proper tribute to the Legendary Bill Kelly, who had been doing it for over 22 years by then.
  3:30pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars where do you live?
  3:31pm John from Florham park:

@Sid bill has been on this station for that long?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Sid:

John, if you like this show, the Underground Garage channel on SiriusXM is a good fit. I have Deep Tracks as XM preset 1, Steven as XM preset 2 in the car. Bill's been on FMU since 1978.
Avatar 3:32pm zivilars:

@John: I had SiriusXM for a few years only for "The Underground Garage", but finally cancelled. Even paid the high normal price all those years, because I paid for it "illegally", so to speak, with a fake US address – subscribing to SiriusXM isn't allowed to from Germany ... Never dared to call their customer line for a "give me a discount or I quit", like it is usual – not with my fake credentials and bad spoken English ... :)
Avatar 3:34pm zivilars:

@Sid: That's cool to hear! Little Steven's solo music doesn't do anything with me, but "The Underground Garage" is a real cool radio station! Even better if he pays tribute to Bill, he's the real deal, that's for sure!
Avatar 3:35pm zivilars:

@John: I'm from Germany
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Sid:

Bill does a show on Steven's sat channel on Saturday nights 8P to midnight ET.
  3:36pm John from Florham park:

@Sid so bill is one of the old timers
@zivilars understandable you would never get any sleep
  3:37pm John from Florham park:

@Sud will give it a listen on a sat night thanks
Avatar 3:37pm zivilars:

@Sid: Does Bill's show on UG still exist?! damn, I thought he did quit it ...
  3:37pm John from Florham park:

I mean sid sorry for the misspelling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Sid:

Yeah, Bill, EFD and a few others go way back. I discovered Teenage Wasteland in 1981 while driving the NJ Turnpike between locations. Great driving soundtrack. I made it a weekly habit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Sid:

I haven't listened in a few months, but Bill's still listed on the UG channel Saturday nights 8 to midnight. When he first started on UG in 2003 or so, he was on weekend mornings, but he graduated to Sat night a few years ago.
  3:43pm John from Florham park:

@Sid like I said will give it a listen one sat night thank you very much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Bill and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Sid:

Ziv, I guess you can listen to the FM version of Underground Garage via a stream.
Avatar 3:44pm zivilars:

I didn't catch him anymore at some point so I guessed he quit, but probably only got a time slot which is really the middle of the night here ... anyway, even his show wouldn't have justified my 20 or 25 dollars a month for SiriusXM anymore – the money is much better invested in pledges for WFMU ...
  3:49pm Laura in Peekskill:

I'm doing my damn taxes. The Teenage Wasteland makes doing taxes fun! Or at least slightly less crappy.
  3:50pm pp:

was that last tune by Green on Red?
Avatar 3:51pm zivilars:

Unfortunately have to go, some work to do ... Will listen to the rest of the show in the archives, have a great day/evening/whatever everybody! Thanks, Bill, for a great show as always!
  3:52pm John from Florham park:

@Zivilars nice meeting you
  4:08pm Grubbus:

You Rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Sid:

Oof, I'm still putting off the taxes. Gonna have to get going soon I guess.
  4:13pm MrPFlyer:

I used to listen to AM stations when I was a kid in the 60's thru the 70's. Got to go to a place called Jay's Longhorn b 4 it closed a couple times. Then, onward to 7th St entry and Duffy's
  4:22pm Al from Long Island:

Too far east to pick up WFMU over-the-air. Discovered TW back in the days of dial-up internet. Needed something to paint the inside of the house by on a Sunday afternoon, and regular radio had already gone to pieces. Regular listener ever since.
  4:23pm Al from Long Island:

I love LSUG and Deep Tracks too.
  4:28pm John from Florham park:

@Al have given up on commercial rock radio the same bullshit songs day after day, I a m sure WBAB does not sound as good as it used too
  4:29pm Al from Long Island:

@JfFP: I don't listen to commercial rock radio at all anymore.
  4:30pm MrPFlyer:

Personal 1980's life lesson: Shouldn't have waited until 3 AM to catch a train back out to Long Island from Penn station. Long night wandering around NY, but none the worse for wear
  4:34pm Al from Long Island:

Most of the City That Never Sleeps is quite safe. But at 3AM the only place I want to be is in a comfortable bed.
  4:35pm John from Florham park:

@Al if I listen to another station, I listen to radio paradise a internet station out of California, or WCBN-FM out of Ann Arbor., kens old stomping ground
  4:41pm John from Florham park:

@Al there is WDST out of Woodstock which is independently owned and does fundraisers, the only bad part is that you have to use i heart radio app to listen to them
Avatar 4:52pm spacecowboy:

oh sh^t i just discovered this show and it is excellent
  6:49pm Bill Kelly:

You folks are thee best!
  4:27pm Rao:

Can we please get time stamps for songs in future episodes?
  10:19pm BK:

Rao...too much trouble without help in the studio. Besides, I've regretfully taken myself off the regular schedule due to corona virus issues. I'll hopefully see you in the autumn. Meanwhile, I'm still at that satellite channel on the other side of the river.
