Hope I don't scare you with that picture.
I can't explain it, but it always makes me laugh that people are afraid of Clowns, lol!
I will Paint You A Picture if that's what it takes to keep your interest in Art and Artists.…

Some Themes are tougher to do than others, that is the case with this one. Continue
I'm not complaining mind you, there are many times I simply enjoy the challenge- that's the case here too.
What's the most famous Painting you can think of?

You are invited to join me for a Chapter that is truly a mixed bag- I think you will enjoy this one, certainly hope you do.
It is very very…

I am refreshed after the Birthdays re-runs, and thought I would take some risks. Continue
Looking at the Calendar, I saw that March 30th would have been the 161st Birthday of Vincent Van Gogh.
That got me to wondering if there was enough Music to do a Theme show on Art & Artists.
There is and I will.
In fact, it seems I can do two full shows, or 4 parts here.
I had to go to the dark recesses of my Music Library for many…

Well as they say, the Party's Over.
This is it for Birthdays anyway- until I get the itch to do it again someday with different Music.
I promised all Good Feelings for this episode.
Let's see if I can deliver.
Happy Birthday Everyone...whenever it is!
Here are the links to your…

Continuing with our celebration of ALL Birthdays Around The Calendar, I even have a song for those who don't want to be included.
Musical selections include a Happy Birthday that doesn't seem Happy, one that does, a song that captures almost all parts of my growing up by what I saw on TV, and as beautiful an interpretation of a Beatle song as you will ever hear (and remarkably it came out the same year the Beatles…

We are celebrating Birthdays, all around the Calendar. Continue
So from me to you, whenever it is, Happy Birthday!
You can put that in the bank and cash it when your Birthday comes around.
This time around a musical look at nostalgia as we move on in years.
That feeling that the best days are behind us, when they may just possibly lie ahead.
Plus, I have always felt that your birthday is your own Personal Holiday…YOU are a…

It is hard to believe that in all these years I have never tackled the subject of Birthdays as a Theme. Continue
I'll take care of that beginning here and now.
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!
Everyday is someone's birthday.
So a Celebration of All Birthdays Within the Calendar Year, leaving no one out.…

I'll finish up with the Namedropping for now...until it's brought back at some vague time in the Future. Continue
This time it's Songs containing the Names of Classic Rock & Rollers!
I was thinking, the whole point of dropping names is that the listener KNOW the names, and who the people mentioned are.
You need a Sense Of History, which sadly seems lacking, shamefully…

Let's do another round of Namedropping.
Beginning with a song that not only mentions the Mamas & Papas, Donovan and the Beatles, but features credible impressions of each.
After that, I thought I'd play the Namedropping of famous Artists and Composers of American Standards.
You'll have to trust me on this, I will be playing Rock & Roll Music!
