SALUTE TO FATHERS PT.1

Here is the first of a series of shows, a Salute To Fathers, leading up to Father’s Day and going a few days beyond.

I did it for Mothers, so it is Fathers turn.

And like with the Mothers, listening to the words is mandatory,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS RETURNS TO THE MOVIES PT.10

We continue our series Rockollections Goes To The Movies with that most American of Movies...The Western.

Actually, for many years now I have been making a list of tunes for at minimum a three-part series, The Wild West!

It's just a matter of time until I get around to…

ROCKOLLECTIONS RETURNS TO THE MOVIES PT.9

Rockollection Goes To The Movies, this time with heaping portions of Hot Buttered Popcorn for everyone.

Just tell your local theater I sent you, lol!

I wonder why Movies and Popcorn go together so well?

Having established way…

THE WICKED PICKETT PT.2 & MEMORIAL DAY

Continuing with our featured artist, Wilson Pickett, I was surprised to find out quite a few things about his life while researching him, like his relationship with his mother.

And especially the trouble he seemed to get into in his later years.

Aren't you supposed to do that when in your younger age?…

THE WICKED PICKETT PT.1

This week's featured artist is Wilson Pickett

Pickett did a good deal to establish the sound of Southern soul with his early hits, which were often written and recorded with the cream of the session musicians in Memphis and Muscle Shoals.

Before establishing himself…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.6 FINAL

It is time to wrap up our Salute To Mothers.

This final chapter will have a song my buddy Mike and I always laugh along with to begin, followed by an early R&B song from before there was Rock & Roll, but whose sound clearly forecasts what was to come.

After…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.5

Opening the 3rd week of the Salute To Mothers, there are some who may think the series is too long- maybe feel ALL my series are too long.

I will address that, and how as these Theme shows progress I think of more songs.

And hey, watch it- this is about MOM after…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.4

After playing songs about Good Mothers last chapter, I promised you Bad Mothers.

And this is a Salute, lol?

Yes, Good, Bad, it takes all kinds.

I'll start with the most notorious Bad Mother I could think of- and this Mom is…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.3

Mothers Day was just a few days ago, so I'll continue with our Salute To Mothers.

After all, they work all year round, so why only honor them for a meager one day?

We'll open this chapter with the Rolling Stones.

How many…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.2

I'll open this chapter for Mothers with two interpretations of the same song.
As I was discussing recently with my friend RJ, there are songs that are covered by artists and Pop-musiced-up to the point where the meaning intended by the writer is…

SALUTE TO MOTHERS PT.1

As you should know, this Sunday is Mothers Day.
So what is called for is a Rockollections Salute To Mothers, Mamas, Moms & Mas.
After a previously unreleased opening rocker, we will get into it with a first set that is intended to touch your loving heart for…

ROCKOLLECTIONS GOES TO THE MOVIES PT.8

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.

The song turned up 12 years later as a B-side- McCartney, like me, wastes nothing, lol!

After…

ROCKOLLECTIONS GOES TO THE MOVIES PT.7

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 them.
Hey, That's Why God Made The Movies!…

THE BEATLES ABBEY ROAD PT.4 END

The long length of The Beatles' Abbey Road album left little time to really get deep into it on a slightly less than hour show.

So it was decided we would do TWO shows, as the importance of the Beatles and the album, when originally released and still today, was of such a magnitude it would be…

THE BEATLES ABBEY ROAD PT.3

I am back and so is my computer (more on that later), and we will finally listen to Side Two.

The long length of The Beatles' Abbey Road album left little time to really get deep into it on a slightly less than hour show.

So it was decided we would do TWO shows, as…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MUSIC FOR MONEY & THE FINANCIAL CRISIS PT.8 CONCLUSION

Here is the finale of our look at Money and the Financial Crisis.

So I thought we would take a musical look at some of those who TAKE our money, and give little, if anything, in return.

That includes Unions, Gold diggers (not being sexist, they can be of either gender), and the biggest offender of all…the Government.

What do they care? It’s… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MUSIC FOR MONEY & THE FINANCIAL CRISIS PT.7

This is the next-to-last chapter, and opens with a song I am sure at least a few people have been wondering when I was going to play!

After that, one of the numbers I thought of during the layoff- another variation on that old Barrett Strong tune.

I won’t say who does it, but I will tell you that the group’s name sounds like something I would see during my worst hangovers,… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MUSIC FOR MONEY & THE FINANCIAL CRISIS PT.6

I am dedicating almost this entire episode to Gold.

It seems that when people lose confidence in their paper currency they turn to it.

While I can understand that, the problem with buying Gold is that it does nothing to help the economy, except for the seller.

People hoard it, an unproductive asset- while even leaving your cash in the bank… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MUSIC FOR MONEY & THE FINANCIAL CRISIS PT.5

Back on the Money & Financial Crisis case.

Since I last put out an episode, the Dow Jones dipped 1,000 points in about 20 minutes one day, Greece had to be bailed out (a freakin’ COUNTRY!), Spain’s rating has been downgraded, Ireland is in serious trouble, oil keeps spilling into the Gulf while BP & the Government, aka Dumb & Dumber, stand around with their thumbs up…well maybe their thumbs would be of better use… Continue
