C'mon, spenno. Mike is the only one on that list that listens to AC/DC and you know it.

What percentage will be from his Underground Garage collection? I'm keen to hear this too. Ed does listen to a lot of music I don't tend to so it'll probably be enlightening.

Perhaps it did where you live, but I NEVER heard Sonic Youth on the radio back then. Ever. Maybe if you lived in a college town that had a local radion station you would hear stuff like that, but I sure never heard it.

I won't minimize the effect this band, and Vedder especially, has had in opening a world of music to me. If not for them, I doubt I would have given Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Tom Waits, etc the chances I did. Those are bands that didn't immediately speak to me, and if not for Vedder talking about how much they meant to him, I would have probably abandoned them. Now, those are some of the most meaningful musicians in my life.

Good point. I got into Pearl Jam pretty young and they opened my eyes to a lot of musicians as well. I bet Ed will do a good job with these shows.

Yea Sonic Youth was never on the radio. Sure "left of the dial"and all but they were not mainstream radio. SPeno has been known to be super Hip and have his inger on the pulse of it all but id say most people didnt find out about sonic youth by listening to FM radio in the 80's. Theyw ere popular by DIY projects and followings. That was the great thing about post punk rock n roll

Agreed. PJ was always a good gateway drug.

I cant wait to tell Vedder that the reason I found and fell in love with TOm Waits was because of a bootleg none of us were supposed to have and his management company wanted to sue people over!

This will be terrible. I remember listening to his dribble and record playing during the Self-Pollution broadcast as a teenager. Yeah, Ed, just get to the part where Pearl Jam plays live over the radio...

I'll second this. I never heard Sonic Youth on the radio back then. And I spent my summers in a huge college town. "Kool Thing" was the only SY song that I remember getting any airplay. "Beauty Lies in the Eye" blew my mind and that was only thanks to 120 Minutes.

I'm sure Sonic Youth weren't played on the top 40, but they were still relatively huge for an underground band of the time - remember Kurt Cobain's quote about Nirvana was that, in his wildest dreams, the biggest he could imagine the band getting were Sonic Youth big. Plenty of independant/college radio stations were playing bands like Fugazi and Sonic Youth in the 80s; I used to volunteer at one in the latter half of the 90s and I know they were playing that kind of stuff back then. If you had interest in music outside of what was huge, that stuff wasn't very hard to find - especially by the latter half of the 80s. Rage, classic Australian late-night TV film clip show, was certainly playing videos by those kind of bands.

Perhaps the American experience was different, of course.

I'm firmly in the track12/'2black camp here. Of course, I'm from Texas...so radio's never really had any grand musical revelations for me.

Sonic Youth weren't exactly an obscure band by the mid/late 80s, guys.

If Ed had said "here's a hyper-obscure band that none of you have heard of" you'd have a point. But he didn't, so you don't. He said something that was, technically, correct. But hey! Let's all feel superior to the mega-successful musician who actually knows all the people we only read Wiki articles about. He's so clueless! Haha!

I think that was implied in his introduction, in a way that he was trying to redress past wrongs and "introduce" people to Sonic Youth - er, thanks Eddie, I guess.

Like I said above, while they weren't played on mainstream top 40 stations, plenty of radio stations were playing Sonic Youth.

Eddie remains a gigantic dork.

i think he was thinking of a lot of people that followed pearl jam at the time because they were everywere, and felt the need to spin a few songs from some other artists, he felt, didnt have the same recognition. Sonic Youth being one of them...but also, The frogs, Mudhoney, etc..

Remember the boston 94 show? he kinda tells something similar about The frogs.
