ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL1: FAVORITES AND GUILTY PLEASURES PT.2

The Muse steered me a little Folkie at the beginning, and I wanted to play the two Best Songs I have ever heard about Old People.
And then I went on about the joys and adventures we used to have playing the Flip Side of Singles.
This was a nice diversion show…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL1: FAVORITES AND GUILTY PLEASURES PT.1

It has occurred to me that this Rockollections show will not go on forever.

Some day, for some reason, it will end, as everything does including us.

So rather than wait to play particular songs in a Theme, or finding a reason to play them, I have decided to go for myself and just play them because I want to!

These are Favorites of mine encountered over the many years I've been listening to Music, and some may be just…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MEMORIAL DAY 2014 PT.2 END

The Official Memorial Day Remembrance concludes for this year, but in my heart continues the other 364 days.

This time, I'll open with song about a guy who, I hate to say it, would have made it easier on his family and himself if he had not come home from war overseas.

The song contains probably the most powerful metaphor I have ever heard!

Included in this closing Chapter, the story of a tune I heard in church…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: MEMORIAL DAY 2014 PT.1

Memorial Day is May 26th, it used to always be on May 30th before our fixation with Monday Holidays.

It is a day of Remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service- the ultimate sacrifice.

I'll open with song that is also a Poem, taken word for word from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

And later in, a song adapted from a Poem- this one written in 1942…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE COLOR RED PT.2 END

Some more Red Music, and by no means am I trying to play The Greatest Red Songs Of All Time.

As a matter of fact, I refused to leave my chair, playing only Red songs I could see and reach without getting up, lol!

A Lazy Spring Day!

The only requirement was that I LIKE the song, but I like most things I hear.

This is a show maybe even more Free-Form than usual- an unprepared, make something out of nothing…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE COLOR RED PT.1

This was one of the very few times I sat down to do a show and had nothing in mind.

I was thinking about next week's broadcast and it kind of sneaked up on me that I had to do one for this week.

What was I to do?

Well I had earlier in the week found an unmarked cassette that I threw in the player, and it was Steve Goodman visiting Vin Scelsa on an Easter Sunday on WNEW-FM.

That  became an annual Easter…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JUKEBOX MUSIC PT.3 END

This is the capper for the Jukebox exploration.

Despite some old statistics, I've always felt Jukeboxes made most of their money in bars.

Now imagine sitting in a bar, and a guy sitting with you is the guy singing on the Jukebox!

That's how I'll begin, and I'll go from there.

Included in this Episode is perhaps the Best Song of the short series, by Ellis Paul!

Plus a song people undoubtedly were wondering…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JUKEBOX MUSIC PT.2

I began last week with Music dedicated to the glorious Jukebox.

They started as wooden boxes and graduated to those beautiful old Wurlitzers, Seeburgs and Rockolas.

Michael Martin Murphey calls them, "slot machines pounding out the beat"!

Last week the Jukebox was a nickel, this week the price goes up.

And can there be anything Spiritual about the Jukebox?

Sure there can...I'll explore that too.
