ROCKOLLECTIONS: NAMEDROPPING PT.1

You have heard me mention Namedropping frequently over the years.

That's when a song contains a mention in the lyrics of a Musician, a Group, a Movie Star, a Politician...anyone famous and well-known.

You'll easily know what I mean after after a few songs.

I've been meaning to do shows with Namedropping songs for many years.

It finally starts today, and I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: REMEMBRANCES PT.2 END

In this second half of the show, the Remembrances turn to two legendary Rockers- Lou Reed and Phil Everly.

Reed was a member of the groundbreaking group Velvet Underground, who continued breaking ground as a solo artist and was a large part of the New York rock scene.

Phil Everly was one half of the most successful and influential Duos of all time in Rock & Roll.

And honestly, for all the years I listened to them, I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: REMEMBRANCES PT.1

It happens every now and then, I sit down with a show planned and at the last moment I suddenly and inexplicably change my mind- sending me scurrying for records and CD's for the change.

That's the case here.

I just felt this urge to pay tribute to a few of the big names in Rock & Roll who passed away recently.

Although this first guy was not at all a Rocker.

I am talking about Pete Seeger, who wrote or adapted many…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE BRITISH INVASION PT.4

50 years on, this will close the British Invasion out...for now.

It was too much fun and the Music was too damn good to just drop it completely.

So I will return to it periodically.

But for this Chapter, I'll start with a song that was # 8 on the Billboard charts in 1965.


And I don't seem to have ever heard it!

How'd that happen, lol?

From there, some assorted and…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE BRITISH INVASION PT.3

As I write this, 50 years ago tonight, Feb. 9th 1964, the Beatles performed on the Ed Sullivan Show for the first time.
I watched it as a kid, and it's an odd feeling knowing what you did PRECISELY on a given date a half century ago!
In fact, it's never…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE BRITISH INVASION PT.2

As noted before, 50 years ago on Feb. 7th 1964, the Beatles landed at Kennedy Airport met by reporters and mostly screaming girls, and Beatlemania and The British Invasion commenced to be born.
Those two terms may seem interchangeable now, but I'll point out the difference.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE BRITISH INVASION PT.1

50 years ago on Feb. 7th 1964, the Beatles arrived at Kennedy Airport here in New York, marking the beginning of Beatlemania and The British Invasion.

As it happened, I didn't like their…
