ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.1

Rockollections finally falls on November 1st, All Saints Day!

So no Halloween show this year, but instead a sort of Anti-Halloween show.

And you should know that without All Saints Day, there is no Halloween!

I will cover that, but mostly I'll take a Rock & Roll look at the Saints.

Including the peculiar matter of St. Christopher, that patron of Safe Travel, being taken off…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL5- FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.2

It’s Volume 5 of the Playing Favorites And Guilty Pleasures shows.

After a Blue-Eyed Soul beginning, this took a definite Folkie turn.

I have a Song in here you might remember that was finally released in True Stereo after 42 years!

Also Tom Rush from that Trolling For Owls CD being as funny as I’ve ever known him to be- what a joyous album.

Then a Song I don’t recall ever playing on the show before.

If you…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL5- FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.1

Time for one of those Playing Favorites And Guilty Pleasures shows- Volume 5.

A chance to re-create what it would be like if you came over to my house, sat with a beverage and I got to play some Songs for you.

By no means are these My Favorite Songs Of All Time or The Best Records Ever Made, although I do hit on one sometimes.

They are simply Songs I grabbed out of scattered piles that I Happen To Like or Have a…

Well, now it was 24 years and ONE WEEK ago, on October 16, 1992, that an all-star celebration of the 1962 release of Bob Dylan's first album took place at Madison Square Garden.

And things will get musically very interesting as the evening goes along that Neil Young humorously but aptly nicknamed Bobfest!

For these last two parts we have a dream lineup.

We’ll hear some of the biggest names in the world of Rock &…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BOB DYLAN'S 30TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT PT.2

It was 24 years ago, on October 16, 1992, that an all-star celebration of the 1962 release of Bob Dylan's first album took place at Madison Square Garden here in New York City.

I did this show in 2012 and this is the second of four parts in which I will play what I consider the highlights of the Concert.

This short Series seemed like a good idea because enough time has passed for there to be a good number of people who have…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BOB DYLAN'S 30TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT PT.1

It was 20 years ago to the DAY when I did this show in 2012.

An all-star celebration of the 1962 release of Bob Dylan's first album took place at Madison Square Garden here in New York City on October 16, 1992.

And now amazingly, Dylan's career started 54 YEARS AGO!

I will play what I consider the highlights of the Concert.

Simply, I could not fit all the performances into two hours, so choices had to be…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOT COFFEE PT.2 END

Finishing up last Thursday's National Coffee Day and Saturday's International Coffee Day.

I'll have some Old-Sounding Songs, some are actually Pre-Rock & Roll.

And not to be selfish and self-centered, for the Non-Coffee Drinkers and the British, a brief stop for Tea Time!

But it's Coffee we are celebrating, so we'll have One Cup Of Coffee and One More Cup Of Coffee.

To end, it should be mentioned that Coffee…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOT COFFEE PT.1

This is an Impulse Show.

I found out last Thursday it was National Coffee Day, and this past Saturday was International Coffee Day.

So I said to myself, let's see if I can do it- a Coffee Show!

You know, there are Coffee Songs that mention Cigarettes.

Yeah...yeah...that's right...Cigarettes, lol!

No PC here, they do go together!

On the Plus Side, Coffee is the Go To Drink for Ex-Alcoholics.

Give a listen, I'll…
