Steven Van Zandt Debut ‘Qoolest Quarantine Collection’ on Radio Show


Underground Garage Rock show will feature “classic interviews” with Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Ringo Starr and Bruce Springsteen

Listeners will meet Trenton Quarantino when the Qoolest Quarantine Collection begins on April 3rd with a three-part interview with Bruce Springsteen. The press release doesn’t specify, but this possibly refers to an extensive interview that Van Zandt conducted with Springsteen in 2011 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Underground Garage.

According to Rolling Stone, the long-time host of Little Steven’s Underground Garage has just announced plans for a special series of radio shows he’s dubbing The Qoolest Quarantine Qollection that will air on his SiriusXM channel and syndicated terrestrial radio show. According to a press release, it will feature ‘”iconic co-hosts” and “classic interviews” with Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Darlene Love, Keith Richards, Ray Davies, David Chase, Ringo Starr, Leslie Gore, Iggy Pop, Peter Wolf and Jack Black.

Sirius XM Radio announced that the channel, named E Street Radio, was going free until 15 May.The station plays songs written by Springsteen, including covers, as well as live versions and rare tracks all day, every day. In Europe, it can only be listened to for free on a laptop or computer.

Van Zandt will host himself under the moniker “Trenton Quarantino.” It’s a name that speaks to his New Jersey roots, the ongoing quarantine and his love of Quentin Tarantino movies. He’s been tweeting in recent days about the brilliance of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The only Tarantino flick he doesn’t seem to like is 1997’s Jackie Brown. “That’s my least favorite film of his,” he wrote on Monday. “Maybe because I’m a huge Blaxploitation fan and that seemed to be uncharacteristically half-realized.”

Five years after its final episode aired, the soundtrack to Lilyhammer has been released. Scored by Steven Van Zandt — who starred as mobster Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano who flees to Norway under the Witness Protection Program — the expansive soundtrack has been released in two volumes. The first is comprised of jazz compositions from the show as well as standards, while the second is a lengthy collection of various songs and cues.
