ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.6

Well we have discovered there WAS an International Whistlers Convention, but no longer!

So maybe my picking this year for the Series is the Perfect Time, Filling A Gap.

And speaking of Perfect, I'll begin this Episode with perhaps the Quintessential Whistling Song of the 70's.

No resting there, I'll move forward into the 80's.

Something must have been wrong with me, I will play 3 Number One Songs- this from a guy who…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.5

Two Good Questions that must be asked during this Series are, "Did The Beatles ever do a Song With Whistling In It?

And how about The Rolling Stones?"

I'll have the answers in here.

We move into the 70's in this Chapter.

I know that with many of these songs there is that Moment of Doubt.

The feeling of Hey Wait A Minute, There Is No Whistling In That Song!

Oh Yes There Is, LOL!

Just give a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.4

More Whistling In The 60's, that Great Decade for it!

And a large part of the Music Of The 60's was Folk, and later Folk Rock.

Naturally I'll have some of that for you, as well as just some wandering around the Decade.

At the end of this Episode, I skipped ahead a bit into the 70's for a Live Lost Classic from the old Fillmore East.

But I do have a couple left from the 60's I will get to next week.

Keep Whistling…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.3

Well it's true, after 41 years The International Whistlers Convention has shut down.

But with hope of reviving it in the future.

So you are left with me for the Whistling, lol!

This week it's Whisting In The 60's!

You wouldn't think such a turbulent Decade with Vietnam, Civil Rights, Protests, Anti-War Songs, Generation Gap, British Invasion, etc. would be a time for it.

But the 60's were one of The Greatest…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.2

Moving on with The International Whistlers Convention which may, or may not be, going on in Louisburg, North Carolina.

Rather than continue to move up the Ladder of Time, I thought I'd make a stop, a detour.

There are Songs we grew up with from the Theater and Movies, whether consciously or not.

In my case not willingly, as a kid I never liked Musicals, lol!

But these will not all BE Musicals.

Anyway that's where…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: WHISTLING PT.1

This is the time of year when they have The International Whistlers Convention in Louisburg, North Carolina.

For over 40 years, thousands of people from all over the world would come for Assemblages and Whistling Contests.

But it seems the Historical Society sponsor has pulled out and there is no Convention this year.

Naturally it would be the year I pick to do this Series I've been thinking of doing for so long,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE ORIGINALS PT.2 END

Got some more Cover Versions and The Originals.

The Surprise in here will probably be the Rolling Stones, with their first Top Ten song here in the U.S.

It was originally done by a lady who was so bitter about their hit she never sang it again!

And give the Stones a good listen- after years of only ever hearing the song in Mono, it is in True Stereo here!

I caught up with a bunch of them that have been floating…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE ORIGINALS PT.1

Funny thing, I did Volume One of The Originals last April 8th- strange that the same Thought Bubble would arise at the very same time of year!

This year the thought was inspired by two Vinyl Albums I just happened to see.

One containing a forgotten Bonus EP that I will probably never play on the show again!

I'll begin with…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BOND...JAMES BOND PT.2 END

It's time I mentioned Ian Fleming, the author of the novels and stories the Bond Industry has been built on.

I read many of them, and Sean Connery was always the man I visualized as James Bond.

And I always will.

Although I do like the new guy, Daniel Craig, and started watching again.

The others...yecch!

We'll be getting…
