Classic Rock Bottom

I decided to go Folk in this Chapter.
Included in this Episode is the urgent thought, during the old Cold War, of Rain As Metaphor for Nuclear War and Radioactive Fallout- hang onto something if you have never heard these- the poetic words will come fast and furious!
A Randy Newman song dripping with sadness and sarcasm- I'll be playing my favorite version by someone that may surprise you.
Followed quickly by one that will pick you right up and make you feel glad you have those good times, bad times, true friends.
All the ingredients that are usually contained in these shows are here, but with a Folk & Folk Rock bent.
Give this one a listen- a close, get-back-to-when-the-lyrics-mattered listen!
You won't be disappointed.

I haven't listened to a game in decades I think.

I have TV, lol!

Who DOESN'T like Italian food?

I'm going to have to check out WOR. If I remember correctly, I tried tuning into a game a few years ago and it was blocked, maybe because of where I'm located.

Yes, you can tune in on the internet to WOR.
It's for an Italian restaurant on Staten Island.
UNLESS you don't like Italian food...impossible, lol!

No, I don't get WOR here. Unless there's a way thru the internet?

That's cool that you did a commercial that airs during Metsie games. Unless it's for a feminine hygiene product.....

I used the word "unless" twice. Maybe even three times.

It was meant provoke more thought than simply rain!


I dig that Melanie one of all the versions I’ve heard.

Wait a second, there were TWO Gordon Lightfoot songs in here.

Now I have to figure out which one...oh no!

I go first one, Early Morning Rain!

Melanie traded up to rollerblades.

They are rusted, lol!

Hey man, you ever listen to Met games on Radio, WOR-AM?

A fellow DJ recognized my voice, and wrote me asking if I had done a commercial that was playing on Met games.

Sure as hell, that’s me!


Ok, I am calm, but how about that?

Now, I’ve done it all and can get hit with lightning, lol!

Thanks for the listen and writing,

Well, I guess this made me think.


Probably because it's raining again.

Not much to say, dig that Gordon Lightfoot song AND the Melanie song. Does she still have a brand new 0pair of rollers skates or are they now rusted due to the rain?
