Classic Rock Bottom

Oh baby, Thanksgiving is getting real close now!
We have been listening to songs about going Home, Home For Thanksgiving.
But what if the Home is YOURS?
So I'll start off with songs for people who have guests coming to their Home.
Got a true story in here too, a dumb drunken story regarding inviting semi-strangers to my house from a Manhattan bar that does actually make for a fun memory.
Damn, I didn't think they would really come, and I couldn't even introduce most of the guests to my girl Angel because I couldn't remember their names, lol!
After that, a look at where Home always is.
I'll close this episode out with the great old group, Buffalo Springfield.
I don't like to toot my own horn, but I particularly think you will enjoy the inspired opening songs- I got lucky and made some GREAT selections, lol!
To me, this has an authentic feeling of early Thanksgiving Day to it.
As will the next chapter, I am even getting hungry thinking about it.

Here's the link to our now-defrosted Turkey, at WLSO.FM:

Beats the crap out of that OTHER place!

Much appreciated Mike. Same goes for you my friend. As a matter of fact, I enjoy the online company of you, Jon, Scott, Niels and TageRyche, all upstanding dudes in my book!

On the Irish side I have/had a bunch of drunken uncles.
Come to think of it, on the Italian side too, lol!
But I wasn't thinking of any in particular, I just needed something to say to intro the song!
From now on though, it is druncle for me too, lol!
And we go from drinking men to thinking men...we are that alright!
I believe you with the Dick Van Dyke, you are a very knowledgeable dude with music, that's why I enjoy your comments so much.
Yes that McCartney song was inspired as I told Scott.
And I never identified Song For Judith (Open The Door) as being by Judy Collins.
Just listened to the final part, which will be out there later tonight, and that happens again.
My mind was racing with what to play and how much time was left.
It's funny you should say that about Elvis' voice, because I truthfully thought the same thing.
And I wondered if you younger guys would notice.
See. you are a Musicologist like myself, lol!
And that is clearly the better one, but I sometimes just relish the opportunity to play songs with the same title...because I can.
That will happen also in the final chapter later, but there I couldn't pick one I like better than the other.
Oh yeah, I noticed those backing vocals coming out of the stereo speakers on the Buffalo Springfield- they were known for that.
I mean, look who was in the group!
Thanks for the kind words, and no need for a Thesaurus yet, lol!
In fact, I am thankful I met you this year- you're a good man, smart and easy to get along with.
Could there be a better listener?

Jack Daniel's always helps in any situation, not for me anymore, but!
You are a lucky man this year.
Because I am a bachelor, everybody thinks I will be miserable if I don't have Thanksgiving dinner with them.
That's not true.
And damn, I sit there and say to myself I don't need this crap, I have my OWN dysfunctional family, lol!
Yes, I struck gold with that McCartney Wings song- it just came to me and I jumped on it (with my great acting ability about hearing the doorbell, lol).
And the next one Song For Judith (Open The Door) fit perfectly, which I never identified as being by Judy Collins.
Real proud of that combo!
I love Buffalo Springfield too, as well as Poco, and that wasn't research that was memory, lol!
We are all getting hungry, and later tonight one final chapter.
Great to hear from you,

Today I listened before I read Scott's comments. Funny that you should mention a drunken uncle. I have one of those. As a matter of fact, I just call him my druncle.

I actually did think that was Dick Van Dyke, believe it or not. Great "thinking man's" pick to start the show.

I like the McCartney song as well. I always liked the military styled snare drum in that song.

I didn't get the artist and maybe didn't get the title right, but Song For Judith is a beautiful song. Lyrically and vocally.

Out of the two "Home Is Where The Heart Is" tunes, I really dig the Elvis song. This is my opinion, but I think that man had the greatest "voice" ever. Period.

I also really dig the Buffalo Springfield song, more great backing vocals on that song. Did you notice that?

Outstanding show Mike. I need to get a thesaurus and come up with some different words to use...

Family and Thanksgiving/Christmas reminds me of a line in the Christmas vacation movie. "How'd you do it Dad?", "I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels". This year I am thankful to have a reprieve from a large family gathering for the holidays. So I am not struggling to put on a happy face... see :-)

I love Paul McCartney/Wings. Who else could hit the charts with a song about someone knocking at the door (sans Dylan). I kept getting another thought, when they knock on the door Tommy Chong kept replying, "Dave's not here", hahahaha.

I love Buffalo Springfield, I just posted a tune from Poco who rose out that band (Richie Furay and Jim Messina) - nevermind you mentioned that, damn your thorough research! hahaha

Nice show Mike! Your making me hungry now with this holiday talk...
