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
