ROCKOLLECTIONS: BY THE NUMBERS- 19 TO 24 PT.5

NUMBERS 19 TO 24



Running the table with By The Numbers, an attempt to play songs in order with the specific number in it beginning with One, moving up to Thirty One!

The Number can be in the Song Title or the Lyrics, and in the vast majority of the Songs it's in BOTH!

23 was one of the most difficult to find for me, but I did, lol!

It's the usual Mixed Bag of Music, this time going from 19 to 24.

Give a listen, it's unpredictable!

NUMBERS 14 TO 18



More By The Numbers, an attempt to play songs in order with the specific number in it beginning with One, moving up to Thirty One!

The Number can be in the Song Title or the Lyrics, and in the vast majority of the Songs it's in BOTH!

And for each Number I may play one song, two songs, who knows, maybe five songs.

It's the usual Mixed Bag of Music, this time going from 14 to 18.

Beginning with a 14 you have to listen for.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINES DAY 2024 PT.2

This St. Valentine’s Day Edition continues with a tune by a woman named Sam Brown, which can be found on the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra album that included George Harrison's last recorded song.

Then it seems to me Valentine’s Day is a good time for thoughts of Old Records and Old Loves.

I'll have a little History of Valentine’s Day, it dates back to the 3rd Century,

And for a finish, a couple of my favorite Love Songs, both with Girl's Names in the title.

I… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINES DAY 2024 PT.1

The Super Bowl is over, and now we can turn our attention to Valentine’s Day.

For it, I wandered around the Music Library picking out Love Songs.

Songs I really like- Dedicated To The Ones I Love!

Love can lift you up, Love can break your heart.

And some of the most Touching Songs are about Love Lost, and one in here reaches in and GRABS me!

That Getting Over You thing!

Join me for the ride!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BY THE NUMBERS- 5 TO 8 PT.2

NUMBERS 5 TO 8



Here is an idea that came to me listening to The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole, the part where he sings, "To kids from one to ninety-two".

I thought wouldn't it be cool to play a song with each of those numbers in them.

Then I realized that would probably be impossible, so I downsized.

7 of the 12 Months of the Year have 31 Days in them, so why not try that!

So that's the premise, play a song with the specific number in it beginning with One,… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHANGES PT.10 FINAL

It's Time to Change Topics- so it's the Final Chapter to a long Series.

I've covered a lot of ground over these weeks.

This last half, a look and listen regarding Changes Of Heart and Changes Of Mind.

Changing Your Mind might be the easiest, most acceptable Change of all, but there's no guarantee that will work out!

I'll sum up what we learned during this Series, if anything.

And I have TWO endings- both with lyrics worthy of your attention.

So I ask for it.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHANGES PT.8

There are so very very many Changes songs- and good ones- I may Change my mind about ending the Series now.

I’ll open with a song I love, and if we weren’t crazy we’d all go insane.

Then a song from a guy I haven’t thought of in years, wonder what ever happened to him?

Followed by one with Great Lyrics that asks Great Questions.

Then a little something you may not know involving The Greatest Band That Ever Existed!

And another Great Group with their Masterpiece from a… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHANGES PT.7

More Changes, and since I started this Series I have played 9 songs titled Changes.

So that would make the one I’ll open the show with #10 right?

YES, lol!

Then the opinion Everything Must Change.

And I know people have been waiting for this- The Dance, The Cut-in!

It’s in here, but with a twist.

Got a 60’s group in this half that was actually quite harmless, with outstanding known Musicians, but got in trouble for their poor choice of a Band Name!

After that,… Continue

As a matter of fact, there will be a lot of Groups and Artists you will know in here.

But maybe not the Songs, they may have slipped by you.

For this second half, Part Four, I had another Song in mind to start, but my hours-long venture out into the Snow brought a Change In Plans!

I'll explain and you'll understand why.

After an opening Set, it will be time to expand our horizons with Changes.

I’ll take Changes To The World!

Another nice Mixed Bag Of Music with Some Songs You Should Know.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHANGES PT.3

Week Two of the New Year and Week Two of Changes.

Not necessarily linked, you can find Changes anytime.

Triggered by a Dylan lyric, I went Winds in this Chapter.

Winds Of Change!

A good Mix Of Songs, spanning the 60’s to Today!

As I was recording this, Snow was falling, and I had to go out and play in it.

It was calling me!

Some thing Don’t Change, lol!

Enjoy!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHANGES PT.2

After the first two Songs in here and going back to the opening half, I will have played 7 Songs in a row named Changes.

I have more of them, but I'll mix them in as we go along the course of this Series.

Then no waiting- time for some Rebelliousness against those Changes.

I Love Rebelliousness and Hate Change, lol!

But Changes are the Subject, and more of them next week.

Hope you like what I played!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAPPY NEW YEAR 2024 PT.2

The New Year is approaching nearer, and did I say Happy New Year?

If not I will, lol!

I need a Calendar dammit, a paper one that you can write in.

Notice they don’t give them away in stores like they used to?

Oh and somewhere in the Radio Rulebook it seems you are required to play a certain song, you know the one I mean, of Scottish origin.

While I delight in breaking rules, I’ll go along!

A lot of Singles in this show, including one that was a big hit for Herman’s… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAPPY NEW YEAR 2024 PT.1

The New Year 2024 is upon us, so let's play some Music.

I’ll start with a song that I’ve heard for years but never knew the correct title of, and that may be true for you too.

It has always made me think Party though!

After that, the Usual Suspects- New Years Eve, Counting Down, Years Gone and Coming, but from my maybe skewed view.

And how a New Year can bring a New World for you!

Give a listen, the Holiday is short, the Year longer!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2023 PT.4 END

It’s the Home Stretch for this Christmas Party, with an Open Bar so pour them down quickly, lol!

For the opening set, what’s this connection with Santa and Baby?

Then there are Christmas Songs that you hear in different forms for a Lifetime!

We’ll explore and hear one from my life and yours.

Including a very real and sweet personal memory for me provided by the last version.

It is probably the first song I ever liked on my own!

I'll play a song to close it all out… Continue
