    I googled Little Stevens Garage and there was a link to wxrt. I clicked on that and here is what came up. http://wxrt.cbslocal.com/show/little-stevens-underground-garage/ How ever if you look on the right side, it doesn't appear to be on the schedule. Looks like there is an app where you can get the show or listen from the web.

    That's too bad. Smitty listens a fair amount during non-baseball season and it's like a master class in Rock n Roll history.

    Sounds like another of those typical radio management decisions these days. Take the show off the air, but allow fans to come to the web site so they can get things to listen to other than the station itself.

    And then they sit around wondering why the radio audiences aren't what they used to be, and blame the on-air talent.

    His Sirius XM channel (21) is awesome. I don’t have it in my car, but my daughter does. And it’s great when I get to swap vehicles with her and listen to the great anecdotes (and music) of SVZ, Michael Des Barres in the morning, and Kid Leo on the ride home. They truly do play stuff you don’t hear anywhere else from the last 60 years, as well as stuff you do. But the stuff you are overly familiar with is usually followed by another cool long lost nugget instead of “Sweet Home Alabama” for the one-millionth time.

    I really wish a commercial, terrestrial station would try that approach. They always say radio is dying, and maybe it is, but I’m guessing some old rock loving geezers would check something similar to this out on the Chicago airwaves and send The DRIVE a message to change that stale stench they trot out (almost) 24/7.
