IS YOUR SHRINK STILL ON SUMMER VACATION? PSYCHOTHERAPY PT.5

Continuing on with our Psychotherapy series, I think I detect some smoldering Anger out there.

Hell I feel it too- I think it's that red gear in the brain above, lol!

At any rate, there is no shortage of things to get riled up about.

So a good time for all of us to take an Anger Management Class.

You can do that with music?

Sure can...by the time we get to A Musical Apology!



And here's the warm and fuzzy click-on-it link to take us there, to… Continue

IS YOUR SHRINK ON SUMMER VACATION? PSYCHOTHERAPY PT.4

Well we have been examining some of the reasons people go to Therapy.
So far, there's been Depression and Stress.
Now we come to another major cause that is right up there- Gender Confusion.
Not that there's anything wrong with that...!

Here's the link, and you are welcome to use the restroom of your choice, at WLSO.FM:

IS YOUR SHRINK ON SUMMER VACATION? PSYCHOTHERAPY PT.3

The Doctor is back for this week's Therapy session- as your's, if you have one, is probably away on vacation for the month of August.

Making you feel very nervous and anxious.

I got you covered with a 56 to 58 minute session!

And you may not find this at all surprising- the # 1 reason for beginning Therapy is STRESS!

So a musical look at that.

Plus, despite all my training and all the Degrees I have been awarded, there are times I can't do it all by myself.

I have… Continue

IS YOUR SHRINK ON SUMMER VACATION? PSYCHOTHERAPY PT.2

We continue for the month of August, with all the Psychotherapists on vacation- leaving their clients very nervous about that.

So I am filling in.

I promised you a Patient Profile and Diagnosis during your first visit.

Please find a seat, take these forms and fill them out- using blue or black ink ONLY!

Then we will talk a while.

Could be you are suffering from Depression.

Looks that way from here...but I shouldn't be so hasty, lol!

One of the most frequent… Continue

IS YOUR SHRINK ON SUMMER VACATION? PSYCHOTHERAPY PT.1

Well I guess we can take the Gone Fishin' sign down for a while.

I am back with an uneasy peace.

It was great to take over a month off, I feel refreshed, and yet the thought of continuing to do this weekly is a daunting one.

As Mom used to say, we shall see what we shall see.

And naturally, being the contrarian rebel that I am, I am back with a SERIES!

Dedicated to all who don't like series, lol!

Since this show is a reflection of me and my rebellious ways, what… Continue

TEENAGE WASTELAND PT.2

I think I invented a word when I said I owe you a “tellabout” for Going Mobile, LOL!
Not much I can say about this one- it is a continuation of Who’s Next.
I didn’t know Nicky Hopkins played piano on Song Is Over.
Other than that, enjoy the rest of the album and more of my sneaky quips.

Here's the link, without which we sit around in silence, lol:

TEENAGE WASTELAND PT.1

I haven’t put any of them here, but for the last few years I have been playing the Beatles and the Who albums in their entirety- and in the order they were released.

At any rate and for whatever reason, I decided to put this one up.

The Who, at their creative peak, and their undoubtedly BEST album, Who’s Next!

This LP started out as a part of Pete Townshend’s massive Lifehouse (which I highly recommend you give a listen to, if you get the chance- as much like Brian Wilson’s… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRUE OLDIES PT.4 FINISH

I will open this final episode in the Oldies series with my personal favorite Richie Valens song- you may or may not have heard it before, but it rocks.

For all its fearfulness to adults, early R&R did have some non-threatening figures.

I mean, how scary could Fats Domino be? He has always been just a nice man.

I have an author friend of mine, Lou Miano, who is writing a book on Louis Prima.

He is of the opinion, and there are many others who agree with him, that Prima… Continue

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TRUE OLDIES PT.3

Alright, now we get to some real kickass Rock & Roll!

Wailing saxes, guitars, drums, shouting vocals- OUR ROOTS!

With Cousin Brucie Morrow breathing down my neck, I felt it was only right.

He has the nerve to take my place on September 2nd, lol?

Only for one show though.

You know, most so-called Oldies stations only go back to 1964-65, as if nothing had happened before that.

That’s nonsense! There were a good 10 years of primitive, high energy R&R that in… Continue

TRUE OLDIES PT.2

Moving along with our True Oldies, I am gonna open up this chapter with another interpretation of that old chestnut, Summertime- this one from 1960, by the group that did the original Barbara Ann- long before the Beach Boys.

Then a not so well known Summer song by a cat named Elvis Presley.

I hear he did some things before 1964, although you’d never know it by today’s Oldies radio.

Got a song from Frankie Lymon’s brother that only serves to remind me…oh, never mind,… Continue

TRUE OLDIES PT.1

Oddly Engineer Ken and I both thought of playing some oldies, separately.

Me, because Summertime seems to be the best time to listen to them. Ken because it would be a good lead-in for Cousin Bruce Morrow, the legendary DJ who started in 1959, will be in my radio spot on September 2nd. Just the one time, joined by another old time DJ Les Marshak.

And Brucie will be plugging his new book, Doo Wop: The Music, The Times, The Era.

My opening set will be oldies dealing with Summer-… Continue
