Continuing with Booker T & The MG’s on an old show from November 2008.
They had a number of hits in the 60’s.
Bassist Steinberg was replaced by Donald “Duck” Dunn in 1965.
The group had its first hit with Booker T playing his signature Hammond B-3 organ in 1967, and it was used…

An old show from November 2008 as I am on vacation, and I picked it because you cannot tell when it was done- except for one instance where I mentioned Election Day, which it was.
This was the first and only time so far I have ever featured an instrumental band on the show- and I couldn’t have picked a better group than Booker T & The MG’s.
A popular soul band in the 60’s & 70’s, they…

Let's move forward with the Mister songs a bit, even dipping into the 70's.
I'll begin with the tune that in my opinion is THE song that started a whole type of Music- what became known in the mid-60's as Folk Rock.
Not only that, it began the American…

Well I am getting those Oldies out of my system, and maybe coincidentally also had my ear fixed, lol!
But there are many hard-core Oldies people I know who think Music changed for the worse- ended even- with the arrival of the Beatles.
I like dipping back now and then for a show or…

This is a departure from the usual Music I play, almost all the songs will be from the 50's and early 60's.…

More of that NEWER Music for most of this 2nd half of Odds & Ends, songs from the last year or two.
The Theme without a Theme, lol!
Beginning with a guy who I'll bet has had more Music released since he died than when he was…

Here's one of those every now and then Odds & Ends Shows I like to do- no Theme!
But every time I sit down and do them, a Theme takes shape.
Apparently I cannot play Music any other way, lol!
In this case, it arose from my being labeled an Oldies…

As the 4th Of July fast approaches, I'll go off on a mini-rant on Patriotism.
What the hell happened to it?
This country has done more good in the world than any other.
And continues to do so.…
