Classic Rock Bottom


As the New Year approaches and another one ticks away, for many it is a time of looking ahead and looking back on Life.
Things we did right, things we did wrong, and things we will change and improve on.
This Series will be a larger endeavor, covering the Cycle Of Life.
From before we are born, to after we die- plus all that comes in between.
And all with Our Music as a Message!
The obvious way to start is to ask just What Is Life?
There are many many answers to that in song, I just picked a few.
Life is tough, but this will be fun!
Join me and enjoy!

When iTunes imported it, it had the proper name eh?
That's a pain, having to find it and name it.

Isn't it easier though when you do it immediately after downloading, no waiting, it's right there?

See, I don't even HAVE iTunes, lol!

Okay, I have it now, but it's kind of aggravating.  I have to download it, then open it in iTunes, which imports it.  The problem is then finding it in iTunes.  But I did and I renamed it.  It's in as a song, not a podcast, so that's where I have to go to find it.  Hopefully can listen tomorrow.

Yep.  I download Podomatic.  Maybe I'll try the other.

That's strange, I thought you could drag to any player.

And as I say, I am surprised I was on iTunes, wonder why I am not now?

Guess you mean that old WLSO place.

Hey, the same goes for Podomatic AND Soundcloud?

It's easy to download the show, but for some reason, I can't just drag it to iTunes.  Don't know why.  I had it figured out as I got the first half of last week's show on it, but cannot for the life of me get the second half on it.  I may fiddle with it some more tonight.  

It was real easy when Rockollections was on iTunes.  But since it was dropped from the place you were, it has no longer been there.

Yes re-runs, I am burnt out, been too busy lately and the show has become a chore- not while I am doing it, but finding the time.
At the moment I almost don't want to do it anymore, but I get like that.
So I figure a few weeks off and I'll come back fresh.
Have 3 or 4 good ideas for Series!
Good memory on your part, and I found my response.
I thought that was the perfect starting song, couldn’t think of one better.
I think The Walk Of Life is my favorite Dire Straits song.
Life Is A Minestrone is the correct spelling- as all Italians know, lol!
It’s always fun to introduce songs to people who haven’t heard them.
Nice grab on Jethro Tull- didn’t think anyone would predict that one- very impressive.
Thanks for the kind words.
And in answer to your question, Life’s A Long Song, your comments are definitely NOT, lol!
That sucks you can't listen at work anymore.
What happened that now my show isn't on iTunes?
Frankly I never knew it was, but that was cool to know.
Did they take me off?
Sometimes it's fun to listen to a Christmas show after Christmas.
And with the stuff I play, it doesn't matter much because I go off into the woods for the Music hardly anyone knows anyway, lol!
Can't you just download the shows to your computer and drag them them into your iPod?
Thanks for the listen and writing,

You didn't have to guess the first two, I identified them, lol!
After that, nice going, you got them all correct- 10cc may have been the hardest.
Many many people, on CRB alone, would disagree with this, "I didn't do anything wrong this past year."
It was a long set, so I figured I'd ID the artists after the break- a shameful idea to keep people hanging...or make them come back to find out.
You know, listening the 2nd time is always better because I marinate and that improves the flavor of the entire show, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

"I’m gonna tackle this series starting today. I see there are 8 parts, and part 1 is “What is life?”. Part 2, according to part 1, will be about giving birth. I presume part 8 will be about death. So that leaves 5 parts that I’m very interested to see where you take it.

For part 1, a perfect starting song that, although I’ve heard it several times, I can never seem to remember that it’s George Harrison. And I’ve always loved Dire Straits “Walk Of Life”, and what a great video to go with this song.

Of the songs I’m not familiar with, I really like Life Is A Carnival, Life Is A Ministroni (which I have no idea how to spell), and Sha Boom was wonderful. I love the contrast between the higher pitched voices and the bass voice, that’s awesome.

And I was guessing Jethro Tull on the final song, but only because of the flute.

Great start.

By the way, are my comments too long?"

It took a few minutes for me to realize that I've heard this before, so, although I listened again, I just copied my comments from the first airing.  Basically, I can't listen at work anymore unless the episode is on my iPod.  And that's not easy now that the show isn't on iTunes.  That's why I have yet to hear the last part of the Christmas show.  I'm gonna try to get to it, but I'm still trying to figure out an easy way to get the shows on my iPod.

So, I'll take a stab at who was played:

George Harrison

Dire Straits

The Band


don't know

don't know

don't know

Jethro Tull

I didn't do anything wrong this past year. I didn't do anything which doesn't make it right or wrong. Itr makes it just as "is", which is fine.

I think that was The Band. Now I wonder. 

Make me hand like this. Shameful.


Nice show, though. I quite rather enjoyed it and am enjoying it again as I listen to it AGAIN.
