ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE SOUND IS WOR-FM PT.2

This Series was originally broadcast in the Summer of 2011, so kindly add 4 years to all dates I say.

As the 49th Anniversary of WOR-FM's July 30th 1966 debut on the air approaches, I'll continue with some fun old Airchecks and Music ONLY from 1967 and Before.

And I know there are radio freaks like myself who LOVE those old airchecks.

In many cases they bring back happier times just as much as Music…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE SOUND IS WOR-FM PT.1

This Series was originally broadcast in the Summer of 2011, so kindly add 4 years to all dates I say.

No theme, group or artist featured for the next few weeks- but a Radio Station!

A now-defunct Radio Station, WOR-FM, that had really only about 14 months of glory- and sadly, it's call letters no longer even exist.

But it was the First Commercial FM to play Rock & Roll, and it laid the groundwork for what…

Soccer....this will make you laugh

American style football is a rough sport that is quickly losing ground to soccer (a more gentlemanly sport.) 
This short video explains much....You have to watch this not matter how you feel about Soccer.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FRENCH CLASS PT.2 END

Summer School French Class wraps up with Rock & Roll and Pop Songs that have French in them.

After the first one, these might be a bit more unknown.

Of course, that depends on who's doing the listening!

Plus there are times in your Life that you hear and know Songs but can't explain why.

In my case, I have a Set of Music that goes back to when I was a little kid, when I had absolutely no control over what Music…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FRENCH CLASS PT.1

It is no coincidence that last week's Bastille Day finally got me to do the French Class show I've been thinking about for a long time.

The simple premise is Rock & Roll and Pop Songs that have French in them.

I am sure everybody would have their own list, these are some that happen to be on mine.

It's just Music and it's just Fun!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL3-FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.2

I realized during the break that the date was July 14th, Bastille Day- a big deal in France and for the French Revolution in 1789.

I was kinda proud to quickly think of a song to play commemorating it.

After that, an Academy Award Winner, a song by Lighthouse that I will always be of the opinion should have been a big hit, and still can't understand why it wasn't.

Then a Set of songs that deals with a painful situation…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL3-FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.1

This is the first chance I am getting to congratulate the U.S. Women's Soccer Team for their winning the World Cup.

A wonderful accomplishment, I couldn't be prouder of them!

Then it's Volume 3 (seems like I've done more), where I'll play some Favorites and Guilty Pleasures of mine- my little contribution to songs you've heard or should have heard.

Unusual for me, I knew before I sat down what the first four songs…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HERE COMES SUMMER PT.4

More Deep Cuts for Here Comes Summer Part Four.

But maybe not quite as deep or mellow as Part Three.

I'll explain how ideas for Songs come- in this instance it was something I said just before the break in Part Three- resulting in a nice long set!

Admittedly, these were two eccentric halves, but it gave me room to stretch and I like that.

And I think YOU will like this Chapter.

In any case, I am sure I will…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HERE COMES SUMMER PT.3

After a week off for the 4th Of July, Here Comes Summer continues.

And the Theme Within A Theme is Summer Love!

It's happened to us all- bright sun, green grass, shiny beach, a lot of skin showing- those Pheromones are flying all over the place!

I have a Coming Of Age Song, and we all know what that means, by a surprising guy that is surprisingly good.

Got another from those early days of FM Rock Radio that was…
