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 such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley, one of the most important and influential cultural forces over the past half-century was created, Rock and Roll.
Fast forward to 2011 and Little Steven’s Underground Garage, the nationally syndicated Rock radio show hosted and produced by one of America’s foremost musicians and actors, Little Steven Van Zandt. Each week Little Steven takes audiences on a two hour trip down the path of what was cool in all six decades of Rock and Roll, a celebration of Pop culture, and features the best emerging new bands worldwide.

Physically speaking, Studio M is our own in-house concert venue. We invite artists that you hear on 105.5 Triple M to perform in an intimate setting, sometimes acoustic, sometimes plugged-in. We interview the musicians, and listen to them candidly discuss thier place in the music universe.
We record the session and play it back on air as "Live From Studio M," a program that you can hear on Sunday's from 9:00pm-9:30pm and again during the Live And Local Hour on Sunday's from 8-9pm.
The Live & Local Hour features a replay of the Live From Studio M recording from earlier in the morning, leading into a half hour of local artists.

There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver.

Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!!

Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club?
This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time. But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton.
