ROCKOLLECTIONS: WE CAN DO MAGIC PT.3

It’s Week 2 of We Can Do Magic, and I’ll start off with a pretty popular band.

This is a listen to Magic Songs through the Rock & Roll Era, and some of them go way back to the early days and even a bit before.

Looking back it seems that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WE CAN DO MAGIC PT.2

It's a new Series with a new Theme, a Form Of Prestidigitation.

Or as most of us call it, Magic.

I should mention that March 24th was Harry Houdini's Birthday, just serendipity- unlike the previous Series he was not the inspiration for this…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WE CAN DO MAGIC PT.1

No delay, moving right into a Series I’ve been wanting to do for years on the Theme Of Magic.

If I had to bet, I would say this will go on for 3 or 4 weeks- there are so many songs about Magic.

Beginning with an Opening Set I really like, there…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ART AND ARTISTS PT.3

I am reminded by Paintings of them, and it always makes me laugh that people are afraid of Clowns, lol!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ART AND ARTISTS PT.2

Some Themes are tougher to do than others, that is the case with this one.

I'm not complaining mind you, there are many times I simply enjoy the challenge- that's the case here too.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ART AND ARTISTS PT.1

I thought I would take some risks.

Looking at the Calendar, I saw that March 30th would be the 166th Birthday of Vincent Van Gogh.

That got me to wondering if there was enough Music to do a Theme show on Art & Artists.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MISTER SONGS PT.8 END

All good things must come to an end, although it may be presumptuous of me to say that this Series was a good thing, lol!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MISTER SONGS PT.7

The next to last Chapter of my exploration of Rock & Roll Mister Songs.

Not being a sexist about it, there are far more Mr. songs than Miss, Mrs. or Ms. songs combined.

The hardest part of this was choosing from so many…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CIRCLES PT.8

I heard myself say something just before the break, and that was enough to make me think of a Song, run around and find it and play it.

That's the Freedom of Free-Form Radio!

Then a Loose Wheel rolled by, lol!…

Hopeless romantic that I am, I thought I would take a brief detour from the Circles and spend some time with Valentine’s Day.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CIRCLES PT.6

I haven’t played any Songs with Circles in the titles yet, I thought I’d save them for the Closing Chapters of this Series.

But I’ll make an exception with…
