ROCKOLLECTIONS: REMEMBERING DICK CLARK, PETE FORNATALE AND FM RADIO PT.1

This show title and photo is slightly deceptive.

I will spend a little time with Dick Clark.

And did you know there was a song written by an ex-Byrd ABOUT Dick Clark?

The rest of this half hour, and all of the next, will be dedicated in fond memory to a guy who inspired and encouraged me to tackle those large and long Themes I sometimes do.

And the short ones too.

It now appears the first to bring a calm intelligence…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: IN SPRING, IT'S MATTERS OF THE HEART PT.2 END

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals, Devils 3 - Rangers 2.
I couldn't be more pleased!
I don't know if you noticed, but back when I did this show I had far more vinyl records than CD's.…

IN SPRING, IT'S MATTERS OF THE HEART PT.1

Keeping it honest, this is an old show that for some reason I never put out for listening.
I remember that they wanted me to talk more back in those days, which didn't bother me as long as I could pick any songs I wanted to play without interference.
As it still…

Well this is it, at long last the Finale- until I get the itch to do Rain again someday.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JUST LET IT RAIN PT.7

So much for my preventing Rain with this series,

It has been raining or threatening to, virtually every day since I opened my mouth about it.

This is the next-to-last episode, and not because I am running out of Rain songs.

In fact, I have so many left over, I decided this would be a Kitchen Sink presentation.

I would just throw the Kitchen Sink at you with Rain songs as they came into my…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE KENTUCKY DERBY PT.2 END

mp_yderby2.jpg
As we conclude our musical Kentucky Derby, I know a horse I would bet on but he is for a very good reason not on the field, not a contender.

Then I’ll play a couple of songs that are not only about Horses, but RACEhorses!

After that, just for kicks let’s become children again, and go to a place beyond the Derby, where nobody bets on the ponies- into a world of dreams and magic for a ride on and with the…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE KENTUCKY DERBY PT.1

mp_kyderby1.jpg
Well it only took many years, but I finally realized in time to do something about it!

A show that has been bouncing around in my head for all those years, dedicated to the Kentucky Derby.

Because the only 2 vices I have avoided in my life are gambling and drugs, I never bet the ponies or the Derby, so it always sort of sneaked up on me.

But this year…voila…I am aware, lol!

So there will be much…

I HAVE LOST ANOTHER ONE! - Pete Fornatale, a Pioneer of FM Rock, Dies at 66

I can't begin to tell how you shocked and sad I feel about this.
More than anyone else, Pete played music the way I have always tried to.
We met and spoke many times, and he would kid me about where I had learned to present our music like that!…
