For only the third time ever, Rockollections will be broadcast terrestrially on the actual Christmas Day itself this Tuesday!
And that of course called for Something Special.
You have the opportunity to hear the show before it goes out on the…
Continuing on with our all-inclusive Christmas Party where Everybody is invited, some more of the Traditions associated with the show.
Beginning with the Dreaded Christmas Oldie, which I will thankfully not play in its entirety.
I couldn't subject…
The Annual Rockollections Christmas Party is here again.
I played it back a few days after recording it, and I have to say it is one of the strangest I have ever done, lol!
It seems as if the Party was taken over by someone else...and the prime…

An Acoustic Guitar, what could that mean?
It means I am turning the Mister Songs over to the Folk and Folk Rock Folk for this first half of the show.
The usual collection of songs some will know and some won't, although I would be greatly…
If George was the Quiet One, John Lennon had to be the Loud One.
Dec. 8th is the anniversary of John's death.
I don’t like to play the same stuff as everybody else.
So while I will play Imagine, it’s Take…
Let's move forward with the Mister songs a bit, even dipping into the 70's.
I'll begin with the tune that in my opinion is THE song that started a whole type of Music- what became known in the mid-60's as Folk Rock.
Not only that, it began the…
Well I can HEAR, the doctor fixed me.
I can hear people talking to me, my phone ear (the left) is working again, and best of all, I can hear Music...in STEREO!
And because of that, I thought I'd take the opportunity to use Mister songs as a way to…
These Thanksgiving and the Christmas shows are the most fun for me each year.
I like Turkey a lot, and while I don't know what brand the best tasting Turkey is, I am sure you'll agree with me on the best NAMED!
And that will be the first song,…
There are songs I love that are a perfect fit for Thanksgiving, and I could play them every year.
But I don't like to repeat Songs, there are too many that never get played.
So I went deep into the Music Library this year, let's see how that…
It's The 60's Poets, and the Subject is Poverty.
I thought this would be a good time for it as Thanksgiving approaches, and it's another thing to be Thankful for.
Any show of this sort must include Bob Dylan…
This is the 4th in a Series of 5 Shows on Topics By The 60's Poets.
I began the Series in 2016, and this time the Subject is Poverty.
Credit must be given to Scott Muni, as he did similar shows during his early years at WNEW-FM.…
After such a hot Summer for us here in NYC, it is nice to move into Autumn.
And we have that annual phenomenon to enjoy...Indian Summer!
That will be fully noted in this Closing Half of my Autumn Show.
The Salute To Autumn has become an almost annual tradition at Rockollections.
Rather than play he same Songs over and over, I always try to dig out ones you haven't heard in a long time, or maybe never have heard.
Autumn Songs tend to be thoughtful,…
Halloween is here.
If you hear a knock at the door, DO NOT answer it!
I thought I'd play you some Ghost songs in this ending half.
There are a load of Ghost songs out there- in fact, I could have used the half hour for…
Halloween approaches, or should I say it creeps up quietly behind us.
Some very interesting songs in here.
But the Centerpiece in this opening half is a trip back to those good old Free-Form FM Radio days, for a song from an album hardly ever mentioned…
It’s Words I am playing, and playing with, for this 260th Birthday of Noah Webster, The Dictionary Man- hell, he’d be older than America!
If I have a style, this Final Episode is a return to it, with songs concerning What Is The Word and What’s The Hardest One?…
Last week October 16th was Noah Webster's Birthday, and his Party continues.
To refresh your memory, he published his 1st Dictionary in 1806 and followed that up with an expanded two volume version in 1828.
What a marvelous tool for us American users, as it is…
October 16th is Noah Webster's Birthday, the man famous for writing that Dictionary so valuable to us all.
One thing is for certain, he didn't believe in Wasting Words!
I love Words, I play with them all the time, making up my own as I go along.…
