Bill Kline, owner of Garage Rock Radio Records, has always been a fan of 1960s music and was thrilled to discover that thousands of small bands with regional hits were being unearthed in the 70s. "When the famous ‘Nuggets’ album was released, I was familiar with the Electric Prunes, Seeds, Castaways, and 13th Floor Elevators but it was great to become aware of other groups like the Leaves, Chocolate Watchband and Nazz, making powerful songs, all hoping to be the next ‘Beatles‘" said Kline. He then became a collector of compilation albums such as the Pebbles series, which continued to bring obscure 1960s Garage songs back from the dead.

Many fans of Garage Rock went on to start their own bands that played Garage cover songs and original tunes inspired by the original 1960s Garage bands. Among the most famous are the Chesterfield Kings, Fuzztones and McFadden’s Parachute. All of these bands have genuine 1960s rock sounds, and all were getting airplay on free form radio stations like WFMU near New York City. Kline was working on a website for fans of Garage Rock - http://www.garagerockradio.com/, and decided to approach the leader of McFadden’s Parachute about distributing his music online. A deal was reached and 15 songs were selected from the catalogue of over a dozen CDs put out over the last several decades by McFadden’s Parachute, to create the album - McFadden’s Parachute, Greatest Hits, Volume 1 - now available on Garage Rock Radio Records.

Relatively new on the Garage Rock scene is Lyndsey Price, a singer with a powerful and passionate voice with a bit of punk attitude for good measure. Price has also produced songs on the GRRR label, including the "Dark, Dirty & Anonymous" album and the new single, "David and the Goliaths Theme" about the movement to get a Garage Rock exhibit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Also on the label is Kline’s own one-man band, Thee Lightning. The album, "Quests and Adventures" contains Garage Rock influenced instrumentals which are perfect for use as bumper music and background tracks for videos and commercials.
