ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL4- FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.2

More Favorites and Guilty Pleasures- I and I will be very GUILTY!

Starting with a Song I just felt like hearing.

Then a trip back to the Past, with a few things you may not know- like Music by Ronnie Dio when he had a group in the early 60's, with a sound suited for that time.

And did you know Jo Jo Gunne took their name from a Chuck Berry song?

I'll play…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL4- FAVES AND GUILTIES PT.1

Too many Series lately, so a good Old Fashioned Free-Form Flow of Songs.

I did have a Health Scare, taking a catscan, then being asked to take another.

It plays with your mind, nagging until you say “Screw it, I’m A Goner, lol!”

I am sure many of you have…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: LET IT RAIN PT.8 END

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

By the way, it was pouring outside the morning I did this Chapter.

I knew weeks ago what song I would end this Series with, so it was just a matter of setting a mood for me and you until I got there.

I know I undoubtedly left somebody's favorite Rain song out.

But hey, I sure played an awful lot of them.

A big thank you…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: LET IT RAIN PT.7

For this Episode I thought I would just throw the Kitchen Sink at you with Rain songs as they came into my head.

I think most of these will be known to you, but maybe not.

One was banned by Radio Stations, one by a group that had begun in the early 60's and was trying to keep up with the times and dip into what was starting to be called Progressive Rock, another is one of my favorite…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: LET IT RAIN PT.6

I decided to go Folk in this Chapter.

Included in this Episode is the urgent thought, during the old Cold War, of Rain As Metaphor for Nuclear War and Radioactive Fallout- hang onto something if you have never heard these-…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: LET IT RAIN PT.5

I have a correction to make.

Last time out, I must have thought I was going to tell a story- I incorrectly identified the Rascals album as Once Upon A Time...it is in fact Once Upon A Dream.

This time in, I asked a few friends Why People Walk In The Rain?

I'll have their answers, but I didn't say in the show that MOST of them said they didn't like it at all, lol!

Another portion of…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: KENTUCKY DERBY PT.2 END

As we conclude our Musical Kentucky Derby, there is a Horse I would bet on but he is for a very good reason not on the field, not a contender.

I'll play a couple of songs that are not only about Horses, but RACEHORSES!

Then what’s that expression, “You can lead a horse to water, but…”?

Followed by a song that seems to bring out strong…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: KENTUCKY DERBY PT.1

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.

So there will be much horsing around, and even imbibing in that famous Traditional Beverage.

There are some listeners who think along with me in these Free-Form Radio…
