ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL.1- ODDS AND ENDS PT.2

That show originally broadcast June 3, 2008 continues and wraps up.

The first show I ever called Odds & Ends, and I thought it was lost.

But as a matter of fact, I had done a similar show a few years before, it was 4 days after Thanksgiving and I called it Post Turkey Leftovers- things that had no real place and I wanted to play.

That's the case here, with an amazing Beatles…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL.1- ODDS AND ENDS PT.1

Here’s a show originally broadcast June 3, 2008.

I thought I had lost it forever, so it has never been replayed before.

It was the first show I ever called Odds & Ends, making it the Lost Vol.1!

But there is a qualifier I will talk about later.

Seemed I had some thing to say and play about Paul McCartney’s divorce from Heather Mills.

And notice that June 3rd…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE 60'S POETS- LONELINESS PT.2

Much more of The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About Loneliness.

Again I say, these Songs Read Well Written Down On Paper!

Without the Music or the Arrangements.

And again I ask you to Please Listen To The Words...The Lyrics, of the 60's Poets.

They are still touching to me.

And I am a Highly Opinionated Guy, lol!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE 60'S POETS- LONELINESS PT.1

Since I played all 2000's Music last week, it seemed like a good time to go back to the 60's for The Poets.

I have chosen 5 Topics for The 60's Poets, and I will randomly 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…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: PET SOUNDS AT 50 PT.2

The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds is 50 Years Old!

It was released May 16, 1966, and is now regarded as a Concept Album- with Pop, Jazz, Exotica, Classical and Avant Garde Music.

The Beatles answer to it was Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band!

I will recreate the album using inventive Cover Versions by only 21st Century Groups and Artists, with the songs performed in…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: PET SOUNDS AT 50 PT.1

It’s hard to believe, but these things are always hard to believe.

The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds is 50 Years Old!

It was released May 16, 1966, and back then got a lukewarm reception here in the U.S.

Over in England however, it was a smash!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE ORIGINALS PT.2

More of Volume 2 of The Originals.

Songs we know well, Originally done by other Solo Artists or Groups.

I can pretty much Guarantee Surprises in here!

A couple were News To ME!

Grand Funk Railroad is in here, but I am not playing the obvious one that comes immediately to mind.

I have my ways, lol!

Have fun with this!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- THE ORIGINALS PT.1

A simple Show this time out, Volume 2 of The Originals.

Many songs we know very well, maybe they were Big Hits.

What is not so well known is they were Originally done by other Solo Artists or Groups.

In fact, that can come as a big surprise!

And sometimes I go the other direction, it's a Two-Way Street.

I like these Shows- they are fun for me, they are…
