ROCKOLLECTIONS: LIFE AND THE NEW YEAR PT.1

It occurred to me that there are certain times of the year that you think about Life.

Birthdays are one, certainly the beginning of a New Year is another.

You take a look backwards at where you've been, and a look ahead at what may be coming up in your Life.

And a Theme was born!

Early on, you'll hear a song that I cannot…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS EVE 2013 PT.2 END

Alright, it's back in the low 30's temperature-wise in New York, and that is proper- it feels like Christmas.
As I mentioned in the first half, I don't remember this show ever falling on December 24th.

So Christmas Eve is the Theme.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS EVE 2013 PT.1

First off, it almost hit 70 degrees today in New York City...that's just not right!

I have the fan on now, lol!

Next, while thinking about a Theme for this year’s Christmas shows, I saw that the second week's terrestrial broadcast would fall on Christmas Eve.

And oddly, I don't remember the show ever falling on December 24th.

So the Theme for these next two halves is in fact Christmas Eve.

ALL the songs I play will…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2013 PT.2

We begin this 2nd half with a song that is not a Christmas song at all.
But so Joyous it seemed right to play.
Then a quick 180, with a song by Tracy Newman and the Reinforcements that made Dolly Parton cry!
After that, an annual tradition, the Beatle Christmas Message to…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2013 PT.1

When I started to do this show, it occurred to me now in 2013, that it was at Christmastime in 2009 when I launched the official name change to Rockollections, complete with a new theme song.

I was never happy with that old name Rock Lives, and I wasn’t the one who picked it.

Nothing else changed- even to this day I am the same guy, and have continued to play my somewhat eclectic choices of…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL.5- ODDS AND ENDS PT.2

Finishing up with our Odds & Ends, something the late Scott McKenzie, of San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers in Your Hair) fame, did with his Music that to my knowledge was unique, and went extremely undetected by listeners.
He re-wrote the same song 3 times in the course of his life!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL.5- ODDS AND ENDS PT.1

Time for a Personal Day.
I like these because I say to myself, let’s really go free-form and see what happens.

Some Odds & Ends I hope you are ready for, as I am unfettered even by a Theme.
And I'm…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: REMEMBERING GEORGE & JOHN PT.2 END

A show originally broadcast in 2006.
December 8th, 1980 was the night John Lennon died.

While most were watching Monday Night Football, I remember I was watching a hockey game (it's a BETTER game!) on TV with a buddy when the phone rang and another friend told me John was shot.

I quickly put the stereo on to WNEW-FM, then the best…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: REMEMBERING GEORGE & JOHN PT.1

This is an old show, originally broadcast in early December 2006.

As I note in the opening, it's that odd time where we are between the deaths of George Harrison, November 29, 2001 and John Lennon, December 8, 1980- two former Beatles.

If you had the unparalleled joy of growing up with the Beatles, as they grew with us, and watching them develop into the what I will always call the Greatest Group That Ever Existed, then you know…
