Well, I was lured out of inactivity by my love of Christmas.
I just HAD to do a couple of shows for our annual Christmas Party.
This is the first show from my HOME!
And I wasn’t so happy about it, as I will describe after the opening, specifically chosen song, lol!
I guess it also marks the official name change to Rockollections, with a new theme song.
I was never happy with that name Rock Lives for a number of reasons, and I wasn’t the one who picked it.
However nothing else is different- I am the same old guy, and I will still be playing my eclectic choices of music, but the new intimacy may help to let you get to know me better.
I sure do miss the studio, and more than anything else, my man Engineer Ken.
And I never realized until I clicked on a microphone how much noise there is in an apartment, and from the computer.
But I am working on that and will find a solution, this is only our Maiden Voyage.
This opening chapter deals with the obvious fact that Christmas Is Coming.
I’m smart like that, lol!
But as I stated above, I will for the most part try to avoid the Same Old Same Old, and try to introduce you to some of the best music I can think of that doesn’t get airplay on radio any longer, if it ever did.
So let’s get this party started- and this year for the first time it’s from my apartment.
Pick a seat and help yourself to whatever you like…you’re my guest!
Mainly, I hope you enjoy the music of Christmas.

Continuing on with Rockollections, I noticed Saturday was the beginning of Hannukah.
Got a couple of songs for that.
Ever hear of Tom Lehrer?
He wrote the song for the Garrison Keilor show because he felt there weren’t enough of them.
After that, the Bare Naked Ladies with the other.
Then I had really no idea what I was going to play, so I just grabbed a song by Canned Heat, and let the free-form fun of doing a show from home take over.
I was running around while a song was playing, looking for what I thought would be enjoyable to hear next.
We used to do that at the station because I would bring so much music in with me.
But at home, I have EVERYTHING at my disposal.
I will end the show with a song for my former girl, Angel.
I heard it a few years ago, and it’s by a lady named Vittoria Conn- she’s got a bit of a Mama Cass Elliott sound, seems to me.
More Christmas coming!
