ROCKOLLECTIONS: LIFE AND THE NEW YEAR PT.1

ORIGINALLY BROADCAST NEW YEARS DAY 2013

That explains the Hangover references, lol!

Even I need some time off, so no new show this week!

New Year's Day fell on the day of the show four years ago.

And I remember wondering...WHAT will I play?

It occurred to me that there are certain times of the year that you think about Life.

Birthdays are one, certainly the beginning of…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2016 PT.4 END

Had the Christmas Tree lit, and it had snowed earlier while I was doing this show, providing a nice Holiday feeling for this Closing Chapter.

There are people who think no good New Christmas songs are being written anymore.

Every year I hear a bunch of Good New Ones, and I'll play…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2016 PT.3

The Annual All-Inclusive Two-Week Christmas Party continues!

And to prove it we can pop Hanukkah in there too.

I’ll begin with the obvious- Christmas Is Coming!

Then we’ll hear the Beatles Christmas Message of 1966- and since it is…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2016 PT.2

Continuing on with our Christmas Party, more Old Favorites and another tradition.

Way back, Engineer Ken and I played a version of Run Rudolph Run, and the next year we did a different version, and on and on.

This time it’s a rare old 45 RPM single by the Rolling…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2016 PT.1

It’s the opening Chapter of our Annual Christmas Party!

I pulled out on some Old Favorites
.

And a pretty good opening set of kickass Rock & Roll.


Then there are always some enduring Classics that I may want to play, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with them.


That will be case…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN REMEMBERED 2016 PT.2

Moving on to John Lennon in our remembrance of the lives of two men who were a part of something that probably will never happen again, the phenomenon that was the Beatles.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN REMEMBERED 2016 PT.1

Again, it's that strange time between the deaths of George Harrison, November 29, 2001 and John Lennon, December 8, 1980- two former Beatles.

Without The Beatles, I don’t love Music like I do- simple as that!

So the loss of any of the Fab Four will always be personal.

Doing these shows, I try to bring a different angle to…
