I've got one more song about Kids Growing Up and Leaving Home, my favorite- saving the Best For Last!
After that, I'll play a snippet from a show I did in 2006, the only time the day of a show fell on my Birthday- and I tried to be cute, something I should never do, lol!…
No longer Teenagers, we are in our 20's or 30's now, Fall In Love and Get Married.
And the next step in The Cycle Of Life is Having Kids of Your Own.
Raising them, until the day comes when they grow up and Leave Home Themselves.
Those little ingrates, lol!
Join me and give a…
We are heading into the Teenage Years, and all the Growing Pains that come with that.
Falling In Love is one of them.
And let me tell you now if you are a Teenager- it will end in disaster, catastrophe, forget it, lol!…
In the time since our last Episode, we have grown up quite a bit- we can crawl, stagger, walk, get into mischief, even dance.
Our Parents have dreams for us, and we might even have our own.
These are Good Kids, nice ones.…
This St. Valentine’s Day Edition continues with a Valentine’s Day Song that shouldn't be played on Valentine’s Day, lol!
Then some Music for Lovers Active and Seeking.
A beautiful Cover of the Beatles, a #1 Song, and a Song that has always meant…
The Super Bowl is over, and now we can turn our attention to Valentine’s Day.
For it, I was thinking that under any circumstances, Lovers being kept apart is Sad.
With this damned Pandemic that I am sick of, it doesn't even have to be by a lot of…
This is it, the Grand Finale of the Salute To Elvis, a Series I should have done years ago!
Presley was the Rockabilly Cat, the Sexy Threat Posed By Rock & Roll, and he gave it a Face!
And he went from a Two-Room Shack to the Mansion On The…
It's too bad I was interfered with that first Birthday week or I would have been able to fit this whole Salute To Elvis into his January Birth Month.
As a matter of fact, I was thrown off today by other business.
And I am aware that some of you…
I will start this Episode off with one of the most Famous Duets in History, from a 1960 TV Special after The King's two-year stint in the Army.
Then a couple of more Songs About Elvis, including one that should surprise you.
Finally, some Songs…
I continue with my Salute To Elvis!
After a quick start by Presley, I'll play songs Made Famous By Him Done By Others.
I have a load of these, and I think I can guarantee you some surprises.
Having established how big a fan of The King Paul McCartney was/is, I'll explore that a bit more.
Paul has done a lot of Presley songs over the years.
I'll finally play that Elvis first RCA single and huge hit from January 1956, with an add-on so…
The Salute To Elvis Presley continues for his Birth Month.
And this Chapter will have something I will return to later, Songs Popularized By Elvis Done By Others!
You can decide which you like best.
Usually at this time of year I'd be doing a Series for the New Year.
But 2020 was awful and I don't expect 2021 to be much better.
So instead let's have a Birthday Party for Elvis Presley, it was January 8th!…
This show was supposed to be done last week, but those old circumstances prevented it.
Elvis Presley was born January 8th 1935, which means he is 86.
I say IS, not would have been, because after Calling Elvis you never know, lol!…
I had been thinking about doing this Series for a long time, and since nothing is a given, I'd better do it while I can.
Too many leave us unexpectedly, and besides, We May Never Pass This Way Again!
When I was a kid I always felt bad for the Old…
With the New Year, for many it is a time of looking ahead and looking back on Life.
Things we did right, things we did wrong, and things we will change and improve on.
This will be a larger endeavor, covering the Cycle Of Life.…
Finishing up with our Odds & Ends, something the late Scott McKenzie, of San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers in Your Hair) fame, did with his Music that to my knowledge was unique, and went extremely undetected by listeners.
He re-wrote the same song 3 times in the course of his…
I hope you are ready for Some Odds & Ends, I Am Ready!
As I was playing the first Set, the title of the album of one of the songs reminded me of Alan Freed.
Further, something triggered a memory of him being born in December.
Turned out I was right- Dec. 15th 1921.
After the Intermission, we continue with 1946's It's A Wonderful Life and the project of inserting an updated Rock & Roll Soundtrack into it.
And it is true, I did have a box of tissues nearby.
After all these years, this Movie still gets to…
I wanted to do this for a long time, provide a Rock & Roll Soundtrack to the much loved and immensely popular movie, It's A Wonderful Life.
Soundtracks albums are very important and profitable for Movies nowadays.
That was not the case in…
