ROCKOLLECTIONS: ST. PATRICK'S DAY PT.2 END

It's St. Patrick's Day, and no Parade this year!

It is also my Irish friend Dave Kenny's Birthday.

Continuing with my Roots Music, songs I used to get loaded to, hammered, but NO more.

It's been many years since I quit drinking, and I don't miss it a bit.

Some of these songs I remember as being…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ST. PATRICK'S DAY PT.1

It is time for a Playful Diversion from the News Of The World!

This is a Show for St. Patrick's Day March 17th, and over the years I've only played a song or two to acknowledge it.

This year will be different.

For the first time ever, I will do a whole show dedicated to St. Patrick's Day.

And…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FREE FORM #2 PT.2

This is Part Two- I didn't feel like writing, so it's pretty much the same as last time.

I am going to try it again, just play Songs with no Theme, lol!

My problem is I always think in Connections.

Here’s how I selected the Songs- they have a memory for me, they were close by, they should be played somewhere, and I LIKE…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FREE FORM #2 PT.1

I am going to just play Songs with no Theme!

My problem is I always think in Connections.

Here’s how I selected the Songs- they have a memory for me, they were close by, they should be played somewhere, and I LIKE them.

And on this particular day, this was where my head was at!

Simple as…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SOUNDS OF NEW ORLEANS PT.2

I’ll open this last half of our Road Trip to New Orleans with a short musical History Lesson about events over two hundred years ago!

I’ll have a guy who was a child prodigy, writing his first song at age 8.

The funniest song here is by another guy who could sing like a girl…and a frog- earning himself a nickname in the process, lol!

For…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SOUNDS OF NEW ORLEANS PT.1

We were in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, so I thought we might go back for their Definitive Sound.

Rock & Roll, from its earliest days, most assuredly owes a debt to the artists who came out of that relatively small city.

And it was very difficult making the selections for this show- so much Music I had to choose from, so many folks I had to leave out.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MARDI GRAS PT.2

I'll close out the Mardi Gras, but will be staying in New Orleans for another show next week.

The opening song in this 2nd half may surprise you- a B-side of a single by a guy you surely know.

Then an authentic New Orleans Indian group doing a song for Mardi Gras (we talked about them in the 1st half), with the leader of the group, Bo Dellis, declaring himself a Big…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MARDI GRAS PT.1

This week is Fat Tuesday, last day of the Mardi Gras, and the last time to party like crazy before Lent begins the next day.

I’ll have songs relating to Mardi Gras, naturally- beginning with the New Orleans legend Professor Longhair, and his classic that pops up every year for the Carnival.

Plus the story of the disputed Jockamo, the song innocently recorded, renamed…and writing…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE BRITISH INVASION PT.2

I'll start this Episode with something that has bothered me for a long time and has nothing to do with the British Invasion.

It has to do with "Sports".

IN NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM IS THIS A SPORT, LOL!

And I'll even have a Song for it.

Then we'll spend some time with one of my favorites, The…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE BRITISH INVASION PT.1

Let's pay some thoughtful attention to the British Invasion.

February always reminds me of the Beatles arrival in America in 1964, and that started the onslaught.

A good thing too, because Radio and Rock & Roll were suffering from a long period of Forty Miles Of Bad Road!

I'll have some Musical Questions, some songs that will test…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINE'S DAY 2020 PT.2 END

This Chapter comes at it from a different angle, is meant to mock Anti-Valentine’s Day people.

Ooh you got a Broken Heart, stop whining, it's part of Growing Up!

Whatever there is today, there are people AGAINST it- this is the world we live in, lol!

However I am sure the Singers of these Songs didn't mean for them to be taken that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINE'S DAY 2020 PT.1

We are just days away from Valentine’s Day or the Feast Of St. Valentine.

It's a day connected to Love, Romantic Love.

And coming in mid-February we can use some Warm Love!

Then I thought I'd wander through the Music Library picking out Love Songs.

Things like a Love Song written by Bob Dylan…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.8 FINALE

Finally it is the Final Chapter of Wine Tasting!

I will start with Wine as a Metaphor for Sorrow and maybe Troubled Confusion (not necessarily sorrowful).

Leftover Wine? We won't have any, lol!

Then we…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.7

After a week off for perhaps some needed Coffee, I will go on with just a few more Episodes of Wine Tasting.

People may be sick of it, but I am not- it's been a fun and fascinating ride for me.

When I sink my teeth into a Theme I can't let go of…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: COFFEE BREAK PT.2 END

Due to other business I was unable to continue with the Wine Tasting this week.

But for any Lingering Hangovers, I have Coffee!

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

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.6

It's an Endless Wine Tasting Party, and I will continue it next week!

You may not have thought there were that many songs for Wine, or that I knew of them, lol!

I'll start with a song I didn't intend to play, but a couple of people suggested it…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.5

Then I will deliver on the promise of an Upgrade I made last week.

We'll Pop The Cork on some Champagne!

After all, the Bubbly is…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.4

This Episode of the Wine Tasting Party starts with a song you should know.

What you may not know is who wrote it.

I remember being surprised myself- it's a Folk Singer who wrote it in the Early 60's!

And…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WINE TASTING PT.3

It is Week Two of the Wine Tasting Party.

I'll begin with a Song simply called Wine, no Spo-Dee-O-Dee but it is that, by the Electric Flag.

I will play an Original, and a Cover that is so different it is almost unrecognizable!…
