ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHNNY CARSON LEAVES TONIGHT SHOW PT.4

To open this 4th and concluding Chapter from 2007, I have a few words to say about my man Steve Allen that I didn't have time for before the break.
Then it's off to perhaps the most famous tongue-twisting bit ever on the Tonight Show.
Did you know that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHNNY CARSON LEAVES TONIGHT SHOW PT.3

Again I remind you that these shows were originally broadcast in 2007.
And again, add 6 years to whatever I say- for example if I say 20 years, it is now 26 years.
In these final two chapters, you will hear more Johnny Carson.

In 1972 the Tonight Show moved…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHNNY CARSON LEAVES TONIGHT SHOW PT.2

Please remember that these shows were originally broadcast in 2007.
That was before Conan O'Brien's brief turn as Host of the Tonight Show
Also add 6 years to whatever I say- for example if I say 15 years, it is now 21…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHNNY CARSON LEAVES TONIGHT SHOW PT.1

This is the first Chapter of two weeks of shows I did back in 2007- so to everything I say, please add 6 years, lol!
It is a significant short Series to ME, because Engineer Ken Stanley and I were increasingly moving away from those Featured Artists shows, where you just bring in a couple of Greatest Hits CD's or albums (anyone can do that!), and…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: NATIONAL TRAIN DAY PT.2 END

I am going to start off the last half of this National Train Day show with a little something that, if you are of a certain age, will have your memory whirring.
And all in keeping technically within our Theme.
After that, as I so often do to get the blood flowing to my…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: NATIONAL TRAIN DAY PT.1

It is understandable if you missed National Train Day this past Saturday, what with Mothers Day being Sunday and far more important.
Hell, I am even late by a few days with this show, lol!
Some background- National Train Day is a holiday…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SPRING IN THE GARDEN- FINALE

This is it, the Last Chapter of our big look at Spring and some of the things that come with it.

And of course, it would be incomplete without a nod to those Green Thumb Folks who anxiously wait for Spring to get out into their Garden.

After a brief trip back to my Folk Music…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAS SPRING SPRUNG?

Has Spring Sprung?

That is a real question not only here in the still unseasonably cool East, but all across the country- some States are still getting Snow!

But I am not complaining, mind you, lol!

Spring will go on, but I have to stop this Series sometime, so this is the first of the last two Chapters.

We have firmly established a link between Spring and Love, and I will continue with some of that.

I'll have some…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE KENTUCKY DERBY PT.2 END

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 Pony Man.…
