ROCKOLLECTIONS: BOND...JAMES BOND PT.1

A week of computer problems necessitates a re-run, I had to choose quickly and picked this one!

It seems like the James Bond Movies have been around forever- we know Diamonds Are!

And the Songs that go with them.

I'll start with the first one and go from there.

Trying to fit in as many as I can in the two halves of the show, I will have to skip a few from the…

Vin Scelsa Announces His Retirement

Vin Scelsa is hanging up his headphones. A pioneer of freeform FM radio and a New York icon for five decades, Vin announced on Saturday night during "Idiot's Delight"®, his weekly program on WFUV (90.7 FM/wfuv.org), that he will retire and do his final show on May 2, 2015, from…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- ODDS & ENDS PT.2 FINISH

I'll finish off my Odds & Ends show with another long set.

Over the years, and decades again, I had always meant to put these songs together for a set, and whenever I would hear one of them it would remind me of that.

As promised in the prior Episode, using the Titles of these Tunes, it's instructions on doing The Mike Pell Shuffle, LOL!

And I'll close this Volume Two out with one of my fave artists- he's been around since the 50's and is still making excellent, valid…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- ODDS & ENDS PT.1

Alright, alright, you will hear me say it's July 19th in here- a tipoff that it's a re-run from 2011.

I was busy and had my Personal Holiday these past days and couldn't find the time for a new show.

But I had fun, and this show will reflect that and be fun- a relaxed, chilled out edition of Rockollections with a lot of Music and little of me.

There are hundreds of ideas in my head for shows, and some ideas have been…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ST. PATRICK'S DAY PT.2 END

It's going on right now as I write this, St. Patrick's Day, and the marchers are parading.

It is also my Irish friend Dave Kenny's Birthday.

Oh the stories we could tell- drinking in Irish Bars up in the Bronx, all boroughs actually, all cities for that matter!

And they loved us in Canada, lol!

One night we invented Drunk Rock...a good story I must tell some day.

Continuing with my Roots Music, songs I used to…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ST. PATRICK'S DAY PT.1

This show will be broadcast on Tuesday March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, and while over the years it has landed on the day of the show, I've only played a song or two to acknowledge it.

This year will be different.

For the first time ever, I will do a whole show dedicated to St. Patrick's Day.

And don't be frightened, I'll have Artists you know or have heard of, lol!

This is Roots Music for me, so join me as I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRIOS PT.4 END

This is it, I am going to wrap it up with the Trios.

At least for now- there were many Leftovers, and I'd like to revisit some of the Groups I did play.

So it would seem a Sequel is called for at some future date.

There are Bands in here that can really create a sound and knew very well how to make our Music!

This short Series was a lot of fun for me.

I can only hope you feel the same way.

And that I brought…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRIOS PT.3

More Trios, and some songs doubtful are on today's Radio Computerized Playlists.

This Chapter is mostly 60's, but with dips into the 50's and 70's.

Included, a Band that shocked me by how full and loud a sound they had.

Remember, the Beatles were 4 guys and the Rolling Stones were 5!

And another that seemed to revel in having lost members, proudly proclaiming they were now a Trio.

Plus Musicians who got together…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRIOS PT.2

Prompted by March 3rd, or 03/03, I'll continue with Trios.

Remember the Girl Groups of the early 60's?

I'll have a couple that immediately come to mind.

And a Band that was a Trio that became Bigger, as well as one that was Bigger and became a Trio- not all that unusual in Rock & Roll.

To close this Episode, a Song for the Spiritual Side of this time of year.

This will be continued next week!

Hope you…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRIOS PT.1

Here's how this show came about.

I noticed it would be broadcast on March 3rd, or 03/03.

And that made me think of Trios.

Simple as that.

Join me for a listen!

 

Here are the links to Part 1 of what will probably be 4 about 3, lol, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
