ROCKOLLECTIONS: FALL FASHION SHOW - SHOES PT.2

We continue with the Rockollections Fall Fashion Show with Shoes.
It's strange, but no matter how minor or innocuous some Theme Shows and Series are- and this certainly is not in any way profound- there are always serious songs within that Theme.
I'll be playing…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FALL FASHION SHOW - SHOES PT.1

Being your average guy with important things on my mind like the Baseball season winding down, Football starting up, and Hockey on the horizon, those big deal Fall Fashion Shows always come and go...THEN I find out about them.
Is is too much to ask that they be held in the FALL so I might at least think of them in time,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: 1967 AND THE SUMMER OF LOVE PT.14

A lot of traveling in this episode, finishing up in L.A. and then a trip across country back to New York.
After that, short stop on Long Island, before the long journey across the pond to more of the scene in England.
The end of Summer is just days away, and I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: 1967 AND THE SUMMER OF LOVE PT.13

In these waning days of Summer 2012, I realize just how impossible it is to play all the songs I want to in this 1967 AND The Summer Of Love series.
I'll need to re-invent this with a different name in the future, maybe as future-quickly as next week, lol!

In this opening half, something I couldn't ignore, Protest Music...just a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2012 PT.2 END

Over the years since September 11th, 2001 we have grown more divided, and that saddens me.
We were so united in those days following the attacks by muslim terrorists.
And those happy-go-lucky muslims continue- today invading the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2012 PT.1

That picture of the remarkable statue was taken by me not long ago.
It is prominently displayed at St. Ephrem's R.C. Church, about a mile or so from where I live in Brooklyn, an area with traditional values and a long memory.
To be honest, I was quite surprised…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: 1967 AND THE SUMMER OF LOVE PT.12

Having done that whole show for the 45th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper, I have been avoiding the Beatles in this 1967 And The Summer Of Lover series.
I cannot any longer, as one of the year's highlights took place June 25, 1967, on LIVE Television.
Anyone who…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: 1967 AND THE SUMMER OF LOVE PT.11

After a week off, a return to that great year 1967, And The Summer Of Love.

AM Radio back then was Top Forty, but for a number of years that wasn't even true- they played about 25 records, sometimes 23.

Think about that...the SAME 25 songs over and over!

The advent of FM Radio as a Rock force brought with it not only far more songs, but other forms of…
