ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL1- THE ORIGINALS PT.2

The simple continues.

Songs we know very well, Originally done by other solo artists or groups.

And I am pretty sure I have at least a couple of Surprises in this Episode.

Notice I am calling this Volume 1.

That's because there are so many of these, I should be returning to The Originals in the Vague Future.

They are Educational, Interesting and Fun.

All good reasons to return!

But do enjoy this…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL1- THE ORIGINALS PT.1

It's a simple show.

There are many songs we know very well, maybe were Big Hits.

And some were Originally done first by other solo artists or groups.

In some of these cases, that is a big surprise, unknown to us.

In other cases, we know or have heard about these Originals.

That's it, I'll be playing them...easy as that.

One great memory, there is a version of a Folk Ballad…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: EASTER 2016 PT.4 END

At Christmas, they say Jesus is the Reason For The Season- same goes for Easter.

I ain't preaching- you can regard him as the Son Of God or as a Man With A PhiIosophy and A Rebel, but what happened is what happened.

To begin the end, some Musical Time Travel back 2,000 Years!

It's that Cool Thing I mentioned, Cool to me anyway!

To…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: EASTER 2016 PT.3

It is Holy Week and the 2nd Week of my first ever Easter shows.

We just had Palm Sunday and are now just days away from, and as close as the show gets to Easter Sunday.

For Rockollections, it's the Year of Sunday!

I thought it would be a good time for a Musical Look at Faith, Hope and Love.

And one other cool thing later!

How can…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: EASTER 2016 PT.2

More Music for Easter and this Spiritual Time Of Year!

Turns out I really didn't have to chase many CD's and Records down, I just stayed with what I had, and the Thought Bubble I had.

Like in Part One, I'll have a big Hit Song Done By It's Writer that may have eluded your ears.

You will know more songs in this half, as I was not so much…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: EASTER 2016 PT.1

I sat down to do the final Time Show and as happens occasionally, I changed my mind.

The result, the First EVER Easter shows!

The impetus for this is the coming shutting down in June of the Terrestrial Station I am in my 18th year with.

For them, it’s now or never with an Easter attempt- I’ll not have another chance.

But what could I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHN AND MARY PT.4 END

It's Celebrate Your Name, The Finale- and we've had John and Mary as surrogates for all of us.

Just finished Mary, so I will conclude this short Series with John.

Beginning with a set of tunes where the name John or Johnny is not in the Song Title, but he is the Protagonist!

To close it all out, a Rocked-Up Traditional Folk Song about giving up Alcohol, Booze, Hootch, Moonshine, etc.!

And just a little bit of a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHN AND MARY PT.3

It is Celebrate Your Name Weeks here at Rockollections.

Rather than list yours and everybody's name and playing songs for them, I have taken the most common names of the past Two Centuries- John and Mary!

Simple as that.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHN AND MARY PT.2

Like I said last time, it caught my eye that this was Celebrate Your Name Week, a holiday established in 1997 by Jerry Hill.

A week for appreciating Names in general, and to have fun getting to know more about Names.

I will break the rules and make it for two weeks- Songs For John And Mary.

I did John songs in the first half hour.

Need I tell…
