EXCLUSIVE to those here at Classic Rock Bottom...not like I am a big deal, lol!
This is the first hour of a series I did last year- just before our station closed down.
There had been rumors it was going to happen, and they turned out to be true.
But we quickly found a new home.
Coming next a look at Teachers.
I had songs left over and I am thinking of finishing this year.
Let me know what you think.
ROCKOLLECTIONS: BACK TO SCHOOL PT.1
Here’s the beginning of a series I have been thinking about doing for years.
But it would always clash with the Remembrance Of 9/11, and my priorities being what they are, I could never get to do this.
Since I replayed the 5th Anniversary Of Sept. 11th, the way is clear for me to finally take on the theme of Back To School.
This was always the most depressing time of year for me.
The fun was over, and I hated everything about it.
It was only 5 or 6 hours a day, but hell, they were prime hours!
No more playing baseball all day- and the World Series would be coming, back when they played the games in the DAYTIME!
Plus hockey would be starting in a month- what a horrible time to be locked up in school!
And I couldn’t stand those kids who actually looked forward to school starting, those morons, lol!
So after some memories of hanging around the old school, songs for people who felt like I did.
And even a couple for those nitwit others!
If you are anything like me, you will cringe at the memories but enjoy the music, as we go Back To School.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BACK TO SCHOOL PT.2
This outing I will musically take on the double-edged sword of being a guy and having girls in the classroom.
I went to Catholic grammar school, and shared classes with girls.
I went to an all-boys Catholic high school, and I am so glad I did.
I owe my education to that, as I never would have learned anything with the combination of my raging high school hormones and the presence of females, lol!
Well, that and the discipline of being taught by the Christian Brothers, who took no crap- precisely what is missing in schools today.
We keep throwing more money at the school system, Johnny still can’t read, and the obvious answer is that lack of discipline.
I can only imagine how many teeth I would have been spitting out if I told, say Brother Kevin to go f— himself!
Anyway, I would have been checking out the female form more than what the teacher was saying.
Probably be concerned with my own appearance too- something that was of no concern to me among a group of other guys.
And judging from what I see of today’s uber-developed, looking-older-than-they-are high school girls it could only be worse.
It wasn’t until college that I was once again in classes with the ladies, and my 2 favorite things of the school day were flirting and lunch.
So the other edge of that sword is that maybe some hottie would make you WANT to go school!
Among the music I will play this chapter is the first song by a duo destined to become immensely famous and popular, but by a different name.
Three different interpretations of an old racy Sonny Boy Williamson song- all done by British artists who loved that American Blues.
A B-side from a former Beatle, and we will go out with another duo, one-hit-wonders, but not the hit.
Oh, and finally ending with another fairly obscure song from a Legend.
Nothing wrong with this episode, in my considered opinion.
You should like it- but what do I know, lol?
