ROCKOLLECTIONS: TURKEY LEFTOVERS PT.2

I am Re-creating a show broadcast Nov. 28th 2006, Ten Years and One Day Ago, then called Post Turkey Leftovers.

Playing the same things I did then with slight modifications.

For instance, I removed Rattlin’ Bog because I played it recently.

Replaced it with something totally different!

And it turns out this Old Show was not only a Forerunner for future shows such as Odds & Ends and Faves &…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TURKEY LEFTOVERS PT.1

This is a strange idea, take a show from Nov. 28th 2006, Ten Years and One Day Old, and re-create it.

Actually Re-Record it!

The same thing that happened to me 10 years ago, happened again.

In the Thanksgiving Festivities, I gave no thought to a Rock show.

So I listened to an old one, called Post Turkey Leftovers, wrote down what I played, and thought I would do it again.

This is as close to a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING 2016 PT.2 END

The Holiday is getting very close as people are making there way Home For Thanksgiving.

Something about Thanksgiving brings out the Farmlands, the Country Roads, Country Comforts for this City Guy!

Maybe because it seems a prettier Trip Home.

Or maybe it's just the Vegetables, lol!

So a brief trip Down Home.

Plus Music for Traveling Far Away, A Peaceful Place, and finally a Sit Down to A Norman…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING 2016 PT.1

It's time again for the annual Rockollections Trip Home For Thanksgiving- the most heavily traveled time of year in the United States.

I try not to repeat songs each year, so it's a Different Way Home with new stops along the way and some interesting choices.

We'll hear a Jug Band that only made one album, in 1964, and included Steve Katz, Maria D'Amato later to become Maria Muldaur, and John…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: NYC MARATHON PT.2 END

This musical NYC Marathon is at the 13 mile mark, so the Race is either half over or there is still half to go- kind of like that old glass of water and its fullness, lol!

I myself have never been into Long Distance Running, it's too vague for me, I much prefer to see the goal I am running for.

In Baseball, going from first to third on a single...that makes sense, and…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: NYC MARATHON PT.1

I am going to do a show I have wanted to do for years.

There has always been a clash with Halloween being on October 31st, and the NYC Marathon coming on the 1st Sunday of November!

And I would forget about it.

So I am Running With The Marathon...in a manner of speaking, lol!

It is a long, grueling run of over 26 miles, that touches each of our 5 boroughs- one of the major…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.4 END

Well, this is it, I wrap it up with the Saints, this year's replacement for a Halloween show.

I had a ball going through my Music Library pulling out these songs for such an unconventional topic.

I'll begin with an A-List Group you wouldn't expect to hear on a Saints show- never, ever with these bad boys...er...elderly gentlemen, lol!

Then, a nice long set of music containing one (maybe two) Classics, a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.3

One week ago it was All Saints Day.

I pulled out a bunch of songs in acknowledgement, and I am not the kind of guy to just put them back unplayed- there were too many good ones in there.

However you feel about Saints is not important, although I would be shocked if you disliked them- there's no good reason for that.

Believe or disbelieve, it's all just Music!

And you have to…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.2

More honoring the Saints with our Music!

St. Peter is a big-name Saint, he appears in very, very many songs, but sometimes you have to listen for it.

That's the case with the first two songs in this Chapter.

I'll finally get around to that All Saints Day/Halloween connection.

When I do these Themes, I often go back mentally and try to think of the first song I can remember hearing about the selected…
