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.…
Rather than Webster’s Birthday you are undoubtedly used to seeing the Words “Webster’s Dictionary”.
On this date, October 16th 1758, Noah Webster was born- making it his 260th Birthday!
He published his first Dictionary in 1806, then immediately began work on…
Well I am getting those Oldies out of my system, and coincidentally also had my ear fixed!
I like dipping back now and then for a show or two.
More songs with MR. in the title!
But that doesn't mean this is a Men Only…
I am having computer problems, so here is a rerun from long ago.
This is a departure from the usual Music I play but the presentation will remain the same.
Almost all the songs will be from the 50's and early 60's- and many not too well known, so be…
It’s Bax To Sax for Sax And The City, and the Final Chapter!
When is the BEST time to hear a Hot Wailing Saxophone?
For me, at a small Rock & Roll Club Around Midnight!
Remember weeks ago when I played my fave Jazz…
It’s a Return To Sax And The City for 2 Final Chapters!
I still had that pile of songs and I wasn’t going to waste them.
There are a million Saxophone Songs to choose from- some I picked simply because I like them.
Avast Ye Mateys!
We’ll ride with The Boatman, Take A Night Sail and Come In With The Ship.
Meaning it’s time for the End Of The End Of Summer Cruise and a Return To Harbor!
And I’ll finish the Cruise with the FIRST song…
It is just Barely Autumn, still warm enough for the End Of Summer Cruise to continue.
Weather is no respecter of Calendars!
This Episode we’ll right away Build A Boat.
And then let’s Musically wonder what goes on…
Well we got our feet wet in that first half.
Now we’ll need Sailors for this End Of Summer Cruise.
A good short set about Sailing to open, followed by probably the cheapest way to Ride The…
It was a very hot Summer this year, hitting the 90’s far to often for me.
Add in the humidity and I want out!
It’s always cooler by the Water, so for this last week of the Summer, I invite you on an End Of Summer Cruise, using Music as our proxy means of…
As a nation we have grown so divided it saddens me.
We were so united in those days following the attacks by fanatic muslim terrorists.
It’s New York City Songs for us who got slammed, and it’s my home.
