It's a celebration of Italian-Americans in Rock & Roll and Popular Music, inspired by the coming Columbus Day.
The opening Chapter was heavy on the Pop, this will have more Rock, as I move through the years- but I play them as I think of them!…
This coming Monday is Columbus Day.
And Christopher Columbus is now becoming a villain in some circles, just to annoy me, lol!
But not in this Irish-Italian guy's house- in mine he will be celebrated and a day off will be…
Chugging along with Rockollections Goes To The Movies, I'll open with a song that was written and recorded by Paul McCartney, and rejected by the producers of a 1978 Movie.
After that, some songs from Movies Of The 70's.
This is a Re-broadcast of a show originally done in March 2011 and not heard since.
Let's go back to the comfort of the Movies.
Without a computer during my maddening travails in getting it tuned up, I watched a good number of…
THIS IS EPISODE SIX END!
All Groovy Things must come to an end, lol!
This is it, Putting Groovy Back In The Box, where it shall stay until a Case Of Emergency!
And I was aware of it, I will finally play…
THIS IS EPISODE FIVE!
I'll begin this Chapter with a Groovy Song from 1986...that's right, 1986, lol!
I've been taking some satirical pokes at this pretty much Extinct Word, which became popular around the same time as FM Free Form Radio- and…
THIS IS EPISODE FOUR!
The majority of these Groovy Songs are from the 60's, so who would be daring enough to release one in 1979, almost 1980?
A ragged Bunch Of Contrarians, lol!
I have one in here I had…
THIS IS EPISODE THREE!
I'll have a Song Everyone Knows, maybe the most obvious one, and its development through the years.
Plus a look back to the beginnings of the the Word From Jazz in the 1920's, and Music from the 40's, 50's and its Heyday In…
I am celebrating, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, the Word Groovy In Song!
A Word now virtually antiquated, almost reviled.
EVERY Song I play will have Groovy in it somewhere!
Many have Groovy in the…
Here's another Show I've been thinking about for years, and brought back to me by the Woodstock Anniversary.
As so often happens, it will probably turn into a Series as more Songs come to me.
It's about a WORD- a word now virtually antiquated,…
It is time to wake up from A Midsummer Night's Dream, this is the Finale.
It's been an enjoyable trip for me, I've been wanting to do this Series for over a decade, so I'll have a nice Set to prime us for the end.
And as you know I place a great…
A Midsummer Night's Dream is winding down, and this really HAS been the Series Of The Summer.
After a song for those who Never Had A Dream Come True, a listen to some that usually have a happy ending.
Daydreams, on Midsummer or any other Days,…
A Midsummer Night's Dream finally gets to the Dark Side.
Wild Dreams, Bad Dreams, Nightmares!
Although admittedly Wild Dreams can be enjoyably sexy- and the Alarm is an annoyance that always seems to go of at the Wrong Time, lol!…
I will take a couple of Detours from Midsummer Night's Dreams in this Chapter.
Heading down two different paths!
First, a quick Shakespearean Remedial Course, beginning with a couple of actors not know for singing.…
I have more Midsummer Night's Dreams, don't you?
We should ALL have Dreams for a LONG time to come!
If I say, "The stuff that Dreams are made of", no doubt you will think of Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade in the Maltese Falcon.…
More Midsummer Night's Dreams.
There are different Types of Dreams- and hopefully during the course of this Series I will touch on all of them!
The two most Memory Challenging Songs in this Chapter will be one by a gentleman named Bram…
We are having a bit of Summer fun with Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is a Comedy.
This Chapter contains a couple of Numbered Dreams.
One of them dates back to the old Free-Form FM Radio days, it was too long for AM…
It's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Dreams can be defined in various forms, sometimes we are awake for them.
But the first kind we think of, the most obvious one, requires Sleep.
You have to Sleep before you can Dream!…
