I thought it was time I tackled the subject of Birthdays as a Theme.
Birthdays are fascinating- some people eagerly look forward to them while others dread them.
But the one indisputable fact is that we ALL have them!…
I opened this half with a song I hadn't heard in a long time.
Then another, a song from the Modern Lovers first album.
In it, Jonathan Richman sings, "I still love the 50's".
And there you go, I was off…
I thought I'd go Free Form again, just play our Music.
As I was coming over to sit down and start, I thought about what song I would begin with.
The TV was muted and about to be shut off but a glance at it showed a Motorcycle.…
Got some more Cover Versions and The Originals.
The Surprise in here will probably be the Rolling Stones, with their first Top Ten song here in the U.S.
It was originally done by a lady who was so bitter about their hit she never sang it…

This Volume of The Originals was inspired by two Vinyl Albums I just happened to see.
One containing a forgotten Bonus EP that I may never play on the show again!
I'll begin with a Bob Dylan song, and just what is the Original?…

I’ll open this last half of our Road Trip to New Orleans with a short musical History Lesson about events over two hundred years ago!
I’ll have a guy who was a child prodigy, writing his first song at age 8.
The funniest song here is by another guy who could sing like a girl…and a…

We were in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, so I thought we might go back for their Definitive Sound.
Rock & Roll, from its earliest days, owes a debt to the artists who came out of that relatively small city.
And it was very difficult making the…

I'll close out the Mardi Gras, but will be staying in New Orleans for another show next week.
The opening song in this 2nd half may surprise you- a B-side of a single by a guy you surely know.
Then an authentic New Orleans Indian group doing a…

This week is Fat Tuesday, last day of the Mardi Gras, and the last time to party like crazy before Lent begins the next day.
I’ll have songs relating to Mardi Gras, naturally- beginning with the New Orleans legend Professor Longhair, and his classic that pops up every year for the…

I trust most of you had a nice St. Valentine's Day!
And I'll do my best to continue the feelings here in the Last Half.
But while most Valentines are Red, sometimes they are more appropriately Blue.

It's not often these things fall on the day of the show, so I will take full advantage of it.
You will most certainly know it is Valentine's Day by the time I am finished, lol!
For me, the centerpiece of this Chapter is a set of music I thought…

This is it, the Final Chapter- The End Of Time!
Just think, the Series was inspired by, and started, around the New Year!
And what a long strange Trip it's been.
I have said before I…

Sure it's a melodramatic Title, but it's the beginning of the End for one of the Longest Series I've ever done- on Time!
And it's Time to put it to bed!
These Songs are not at all Leftovers, they are as valid and good as anything that came…

It's a Series on Time In Rock & Roll, and a long one.
I'll start with a Song I stole a line from on a date, then a couple it's about Time I played.
After that, Time And Place- those Wrong And Right Times And Places!…

I am back on the Time Wagon- great thing about it is you can jump on any Time, it's always running!
This Time, a Look and Listen to the 2 biggest complaints about Time- Waiting and Not Having Enough Time.
As things turn out though, properly used…

It’s an Odds & Ends Show, Volume 8 if you’re keeping score.
I’ll start with a bit more remembering some of the Rock & Rollers we've lost, some Household Names, some not.
Then I will make a sharp turn, shake things up!…

Here's one of those every now and then Odds And Ends Shows I like to do- no Theme- but a Theme invariably takes shape!
I started with a small acknowledgement of Sgt. Pepper and sure enough a Theme took shape.
A sort of Memorial for some of the…

Fairy Tales, what do they have to do with Time?
Well most if not all begin with, "Once Upon A Time...!"
How many Songs can you think of that have that as their Opening Lyrics?
I thought of…

This lengthy Musical Look at Time moves on.
And what better measurement of Time is there than the Clock?
That’s our starting point for this Chapter, along with the Good Times and the Bad Times!

There are so many songs in our Music on the subject of Time- and this extensive listen to them is guided only by my own Free-Form, varied tastes.
We heard those Long Time Songs, not always happy, so let's have some Good Times tunes.
