It's Spring, and to borrow from the poem "Locksley Hall" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, that's when a Young Man's and a Young Woman's Fancy Turns to Thoughts Of Love.
That's the Theme Within A Theme for this episode.
Of course, with Love and anything else, things don't always work out.
Or it can be totally inappropriate, like an uncontrollable urge for a friend's girl- that's a definite no-no!
But for the most part,…

It's a Hormonal Thing- an increase in energy, vitality and sexual appetite.
And it's Spring Fever!
Come on, we've all felt it!
In recognition of Gender Equality, women get it too, and can be the aggressors.
But naturally I come at this from the perspective of a guy- nothing I can do about that.
And in Spring, the Ladies are showing more…

Here's more of The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About Loneliness.
Again I say, these Songs Read Well Written Down On Paper!
And again I ask you to Please Listen To The Words...The Lyrics!
They are still touching to me.
And I am a Highly Opinionated Guy, lol!

It's a good time for The Poets.
I have chosen 5 Topics for The 60's Poets, and I will over time return to them- for this Maiden Voyage the topic is Loneliness.
This is something Scott Muni used to do in his early years at WNEW-FM.
The 60's Poets were more relevant and understandable than the ones I later learned in school from their time- the likes of Frost, Keats, Tennyson, etc.

One of the most noticeable things about Spring is the Sounds of Birds singing again.
As you well know, they migrate South for the Winter.
And the Swallows do indeed Return To Capistrano, all the way back from Argentina.
That's some trip!
So that's what we are dealing with in this Chapter.
Both Artists and Birds Singing- as the Earth brings this Northern Hemisphere back…

Naturally when I recorded this it was 41 degrees and pouring rain.
So expect a beautiful week coming up, lol!
In keeping with the Springtime Daydreaming Laziness of this Chapter, I have little inclination to write.
Just find a comfortable place and position, and I'll do the rest.
You need only listen.
And enjoy...there's some good Music here!…

Well, I start a Series on Spring, and suddenly it starts to feel like it, lol!
I'll begin this episode with a couple of Harmony Songs.
After that, I will go very Old Progressive FM Radio DJ on you, if you were tuning in...oh, say in the early 1970's!
Except for a very small group of people, I may be introducing you to these three songs in a row that deal with our Spring topic.
It's a good example…

It is Spring, although it hasn't felt like it here in New York City.
Spring is the only Season I have never taken a long Musical look at- I have done all the others.
I like Spring, but also have mixed feelings about it, as unfortunately it always brings me to a hot Summer.
I am a Winter guy!
In both Halves of this Beginning show, I have even more of a Mixed Bag of selections than usual.
