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.

Once again, I was surprised to see September 11th falling on a Tuesday, the day of the show, when it is broadcast terrestrially over the airwaves.
Over the years for September 11th, I have explained that although the Pentagon was struck, songs about Washington D.C. are not many, and the ones you do come…

Side Two is all ready to go.
And I went off on why I like the song Helplessly Hoping so much.
Besides all the alliterations included in it, there is that chorus...oh that chorus!
Brilliant to me, always loved the song,…
I did this show August 2009- and it was a hot, sticky August day in New York City.
After having taken the bus and train to get to the Radio Station, the traditional hard candy for non-talking I kept in my pocket was indeed melting!
It seemed to Engineer Ken…
I'll finish that album, With The Beatles, right away.
I still can't get over the fact that album was released on the day President Kennedy was assassinated!
Then I'll move on to what was the cause of much confusion and many differences over here in the…
Here's a now-and-then series I started in February 2011, Covered By The Beatles.
As you should be aware, the Beatles put many older Rock & Roll songs, mainly from America, on their early albums and EP's.
So the simple idea is to play the Beatles Cover Version…
This is it, the Closer for Building A House With Song.
And I am still blaming that other guy, that Jack guy- HE did it...it wasn't me, lol!
The House We Have Built Is Completed And Is Home!
It may have its imperfections,…
The House We Have Built Has Become A Home!
There are a couple of things I discovered doing this Building A House With Song Series.
First, this was tougher than I expected;
And also, while I thought it would be…
