This was one of those times I sat down to do a show and had nothing in mind.
I was thinking about next week's broadcast and it…

This weekend marks the 50th Anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, held June 16-18, 1967, dates oddly mirroring this coming weekend.

This is it, time to put a cork on the Doctor Visit.
We’ve seen multiple Doctors, had many Ailments, Tests, Medications and more.
It’s Time The Healing Began!
Special thanks to a friend named Michael for sending me The Druids, with a song I was not familiar with.
Thanks for coming along for all or part of…

I played Allergies last week and was attacked by them- damn weakling I am, lol!
I'll start with an Adult Section, then a case of Heebie Jeebies and Nerves.
And finally get around to the matter of Pills.
Then it's time for a Compound Fracture.
Can't grow up without a Broken Bone!
The Final Episode after this will let the Healing Begin.
Can I get…

This lighthearted look at Maladies that might cause a Doctor Visit continues.
And someday I will do the same with Death Series, if I live long enough, lol!
All of these can be treated at a Hospital, some exclusively.
In the case of Allergies, I've got song lyrics that describe one in the most awful way possible, "Something is living on my…

I should say if you do you have an actual Doctor Visit coming up, I wish you well- all my good thoughts go with you.
In the vast majority of cases, things are simply taken care of, like with me!
As promised last week, some Ailments that would make you go for a Doctor Visit.
For instance Trouble Breathing.
And how about the Common Cold, Flu,…

A lot of talk about Healthcare lately- worries about who will pay for it, how will we pay for it?
Just a brief serious thought until we get to some playful Music.
Then the realization the Doctors we have visited have for the most part been Anonymous.
It’s time to Name Names!
Finally closing with some Doctors of a more Musically Abstract…

A return Doctor Visit is called for, I am not satisfied with our treatment yet.
A few people asked me if I would include Witch Doctors.
Sure why not?
And a major Medical Discovery- Apples aren’t the only thing that can Keep Doctors Away!
But can’t keep Sexually Transmitted Diseases Away!
I recorded this first half hour on a Saturday morning, and I remember thinking,…

Continuing our Musical Doctor Visit, inspired by an angiogram I needed to get, I have to wonder- does Western Union still do Telegrams?
I’ve got Songs about The Doctor.
Also a Minor Rant on the pomposity of the Medical Field.
By the time I was done ranting I Wasn’t Feeling Too Good Myself.
So a Return Visit is called for next week.
See you in the Waiting…

I had to get an Angiogram- on my leg, there was a blockage in an artery that had to be fixed.
I was In and Out the same day!
But that procedure had a song running around in my head and I’ll start with it.
Never one to let a Theme go by, I’ll begin a new Series for something we all have to do sooner or later, make a Doctor Visit.
No sweat, just a Painless Musical…

I'll continue with our Salute To Mothers for Mothers Day.
As I talked about last Chapter, more Mamas.
Mama can be used for Mothers or, mostly in song, for a Sweetheart.
Getting out my Poetic License, I will use it for Mothers.
And Crazy Mamas- not dangerous Crazy, fun Crazy!
There's more, and I’ll give the Final Word to David Roth.
Remember that Song I started the show with?

As you should know, this Sunday is Mothers Day.
Some people go for the name Mama, but I am a Mom guy, always have been.
But I’ll have a couple of songs for what Mamas do.
If you are lucky and your Mother is still alive, treasure her!
For I will broach the delicate subject of Mothers Gone- a fertile field for Music, particularly Country.
And after that, if there is some emotional distance…

This is it, the Last Chapter of our big look at Spring and some of the things that come with it.
And of course, it would be incomplete without a nod to those Green Thumb Folks who anxiously wait for Spring to get out into their Garden.
After a brief trip back to my Folk Music Roots, an epic Rock & Roll song whose title sounds like Latin but I can assure you it is not.
I took Latin for 3 years...it…

We have established a link between Spring and Love, and I will continue with some of that.
I'll have some Love At First Sight songs for you.
Then the thought that was triggered by the Dusty Springfield song I played...where she mentioned Going To A Dance.
Do people go to Dances anymore?
Used to be a great way to meet members of the opposite sex!
Plus a listen to some Spring…

It's Spring, and to borrow from the poem "Locksley Hall" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, that's when a Young Man's and a Young Woman's Fancy Turns to Thoughts Of Love.
That's the Theme Within A Theme for this episode.
Of course, with Love and anything else, things don't always work out.
Or it can be totally inappropriate, like an uncontrollable urge for a friend's girl- that's a definite no-no!
But for the most part,…

It's a Hormonal Thing- an increase in energy, vitality and sexual appetite.
And it's Spring Fever!
Come on, we've all felt it!
In recognition of Gender Equality, women get it too, and can be the aggressors.
But naturally I come at this from the perspective of a guy- nothing I can do about that.
And in Spring, the Ladies are showing more…

Here's more of The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About Loneliness.
Again I say, these Songs Read Well Written Down On Paper!
And again I ask you to Please Listen To The Words...The Lyrics!
They are still touching to me.
And I am a Highly Opinionated Guy, lol!
