More honoring the Saints with our Music!
St. Peter is a big-name Saint, and that photo above is the famous and beautiful Basilica named after him in Rome.
He appears in very, very, very many songs, but sometimes you have to listen for it.
That's the case with the first two songs in this chapter.
Followed by one…

Our final chapter on the Kingston Trio.
In 1961, Dave Guard left the group, and among those considered as a replacement for him was Roger McGuinn of the Byrds,
They agreed on John Stewart, a terrific songwriter who wrote Daydream Believer, a smash for the Monkees.
I have some more fun songs to hear, including a hit in…

Well, THIS never happened before or since- an artist DYING while I am featuring him!
Sorry to see you go, NIck.
This episode has more hits by the Kingston Trio.
But most interesting was a song that we all associate with Frank Sinatra.
And finding out in was written for THEM, and recorded by them 4 years before in 1961!

Continuing with our exploration of the music by the Kingston Trio, I will open with a song that is still to this day their most requested- and yet it never cracked the Top 40 as a single.
Coupled with a story of my friend Dan’s visit to Scotland.
Oh yeah, you can tell he is a friend of mine, lol!
Then the saga of two…

This 4-part series may seem surprising- acoustic, a folk act, and from the 50’s & early 60’s!
But the Kingston Trio made their mark, I am a folkie and I get to pick, lol!
I will be taking an extensive look at the Trio, and delving deeply.
If I didn’t think you would enjoy it, I wouldn’t bother putting it up…

I meant to tell you that one of the main reasons I am doing these shows about Nothing now is because of the seriousness of the previous series.

Well, I said in the opening chapter that just seeing the word September made me think of 9/11, and I have managed to go the entire month with different looks at, feelings about, and reactions to, that day.…

I should point out that I have made a conscious effort to not repeat any of the songs I played for the 5th Anniversary of 9/11, and while a few I felt I had to play again, that has been the case more than 90% of the time with the music here.
And those 5th Anniversary of 9/11 shows are available here at WLSO.FM, just do a…

There are those I am sure who think I am going too far and too long with this series.
But it is the 10TH ANNIVERSARY of 9/11, plus I am trying to work some real bad feelings out of my system.
It's my therapy and I'll know when it is time to end.
And perhaps I can help somebody else out who has comparable…

Strange, but blocks of ten years always seem to go by fast...real fast.
In this instance, I can remember every feeling, every reaction, even every smell regarding the attacks on the World Trade Center and the other atrocities.
And truthfully, time has not diminished my anger at all.
You know what happened 10 years…
