ROCKOLLECTIONS: MARDI GRAS PT.2

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 song for Mardi Gras (we talked about them in the 1st half), with the leader of the group, Bo Dellis, declaring himself a Big…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MARDI GRAS PT.1

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 Carnival.

Plus the story of the disputed Jockamo, the song innocently recorded, renamed…and writing…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE BRITISH INVASION PT.2

I'll start this Episode with something that has bothered me for a long time and has nothing to do with the British Invasion.

It has to do with "Sports".

IN NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM IS THIS A SPORT, LOL!

And I'll even have a Song for it.

Then we'll spend some time with one of my favorites, The…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE BRITISH INVASION PT.1

Let's pay some thoughtful attention to the British Invasion.

February always reminds me of the Beatles arrival in America in 1964, and that started the onslaught.

A good thing too, because Radio and Rock & Roll were suffering from a long period of Forty Miles Of Bad Road!

I'll have some Musical Questions, some songs that will test…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINE'S DAY 2020 PT.2 END

This Chapter comes at it from a different angle, is meant to mock Anti-Valentine’s Day people.

Ooh you got a Broken Heart, stop whining, it's part of Growing Up!

Whatever there is today, there are people AGAINST it- this is the world we live in, lol!

However I am sure the Singers of these Songs didn't mean for them to be taken that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINE'S DAY 2020 PT.1

We are just days away from Valentine’s Day or the Feast Of St. Valentine.

It's a day connected to Love, Romantic Love.

And coming in mid-February we can use some Warm Love!

Then I thought I'd wander through the Music Library picking out Love Songs.

Things like a Love Song written by Bob Dylan…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.8 FINALE

Finally it is the Final Chapter of Wine Tasting!

I will start with Wine as a Metaphor for Sorrow and maybe Troubled Confusion (not necessarily sorrowful).

Leftover Wine? We won't have any, lol!

Then we…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.7

After a week off for perhaps some needed Coffee, I will go on with just a few more Episodes of Wine Tasting.

People may be sick of it, but I am not- it's been a fun and fascinating ride for me.

When I sink my teeth into a Theme I can't let go of…
