I had nothing planned for this week, so I took a look at one of those Offbeat Wacky Calendars.
And I discovered November 2019 was National Novel Writing Month!
I wasn't sure what I would play but the Challenge was there...and I TOOK…
I thought for Halloween this year we'd give a listen to some Screams In Rock & Roll.
Sometimes they come right at you and sometimes you wait till the end, or they can be anytime in between.
Words are not always enough in…
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.…
A few years ago, I did a Series of shows on Fashion- not that I know anything about Fashion, but I do know Songs, lol!
This time I will limit myself to just one aspect of apparel- Shoes.
As you will hear me say, I fully expect and accept that I…
The idea arrived with the Nina, the Pinta or the Santa Maria, a celebration of Italian-Americans in Rock & Roll and Popular Music!
In that vein, I'll have more Real Names, beginning with Lugee Alfredo Giovanni Sacco.
Of course, we know him by…
I trust you had a good Columbus Day, maybe with the day off from work.
And I will continue what I started last week, a celebration of Italian-Americans in Rock & Roll and Popular Music!
Of course that doesn't guarantee that they all could…
It's a celebration of Italian-Americans in Rock & Roll and Popular Music, inspired by the coming Columbus Day.
The opening Chapter was heavy on the Pop, this will have more Rock, as I move through the years- but I play them as I think of them!…
This coming Monday is Columbus Day.
And Christopher Columbus is now becoming a villain in some circles, just to annoy me, lol!
But not in this Irish-Italian guy's house- in mine he will be celebrated and a day off will be…
Chugging along with Rockollections Goes To The Movies, I'll open with a song that was written and recorded by Paul McCartney, and rejected by the producers of a 1978 Movie.
After that, some songs from Movies Of The 70's.
This is a Re-broadcast of a show originally done in March 2011 and not heard since.
Let's go back to the comfort of the Movies.
Without a computer during my maddening travails in getting it tuned up, I watched a good number of…
THIS IS EPISODE SIX END!
All Groovy Things must come to an end, lol!
This is it, Putting Groovy Back In The Box, where it shall stay until a Case Of Emergency!
And I was aware of it, I will finally play…
THIS IS EPISODE FIVE!
I'll begin this Chapter with a Groovy Song from 1986...that's right, 1986, lol!
I've been taking some satirical pokes at this pretty much Extinct Word, which became popular around the same time as FM Free Form Radio- and…
THIS IS EPISODE FOUR!
The majority of these Groovy Songs are from the 60's, so who would be daring enough to release one in 1979, almost 1980?
A ragged Bunch Of Contrarians, lol!
I have one in here I had…
THIS IS EPISODE THREE!
I'll have a Song Everyone Knows, maybe the most obvious one, and its development through the years.
Plus a look back to the beginnings of the the Word From Jazz in the 1920's, and Music from the 40's, 50's and its Heyday In…
I am celebrating, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, the Word Groovy In Song!
A Word now virtually antiquated, almost reviled.
EVERY Song I play will have Groovy in it somewhere!
Many have Groovy in the…
Here's another Show I've been thinking about for years, and brought back to me by the Woodstock Anniversary.
As so often happens, it will probably turn into a Series as more Songs come to me.
It's about a WORD- a word now virtually antiquated,…
It is time to wake up from A Midsummer Night's Dream, this is the Finale.
It's been an enjoyable trip for me, I've been wanting to do this Series for over a decade, so I'll have a nice Set to prime us for the end.
And as you know I place a great…
