Classic Rock Bottom

As you should know, this Sunday is Mothers Day.
So what is called for is a Rockollections Salute To Mothers, Mamas, Moms & Mas.
After a previously unreleased opening rocker, we will get into it with a first set that is intended to touch your loving heart for Mom.
Then a musical look at a necessary requirement for being a need to Have A Baby!
Interspersed throughout will be some wonderful quotes about Mothers I have picked out to share with you.
I'll be doing my usual travel all over the musical map to celebrate the Sweetest & Best Ladies we'll ever know.
In short, if you like my Theme shows, you'll enjoy this.
Here's the link to the World's Most Difficult Full-time Job, at WLSO.FM:

When possible I try to keep the show timely.
Just came back from throwing all my Elvis away!
Oh wait, you USE that chorus with the wife and Mom? Be right back.
Ok, well stocked with Preslay again, lol!
Odd, but as I told RJ, the first time I celebrated Mothers years ago I didn't even think of that Paul Simon track.
I am a big fan of his too, he is a poet!
Love that Carly Simon song although it never got much airplay- and it is not just you, she is DAMN SEXY and I have always had the hots for her, lol!
Hope you like Part Two which will be here soon and will be a little different, some of my folky roots revealed.
Thanks for the kind words, the listen, and the writing,

Well it's risky because the songs are probably unknown AND are not killer rockers, lol!

Doing my own thing daring maniac that I am!

Hey Mike!  Timely topic!  Your quite the planner 


You know that Im not a big Elvis fan, but thats doesnt seem to stop you!  hahaha, all kidding aside, the track you chose is cool because I break into that chorus all the time.  It comes in handy in almost all my conversations with my wife and my mother...


Love the Paul Simon track.  I think RJ cheated when got this one...  Simons music so rich and lush.  THe songs sound so simple but if you listen they are very complex.  He really is a master ...


Carly Simon is a great choice.  Is it just me or is she just damn sexy!?  I will answer that for myself, its not just me, she is in fact DAMN SEXY!


Great show as usual Mike!!!

Awesome!  I look forward to hearing about myself, and a risky set as well.

It's easy to forget them, harder to remember them, lol!
Yeah it was included in a TV Guide, my buddy gave it to me.
It is small and fits in the smaller tray in your CD player.
I remember those flimsy records you could get- I call them the original floppy disks, lol!
But on a cereal box? And Bobby Goldsboro? Wow!
Now about Mother And Child Reunion and you knew I'd play it.
Funny thing is, I did a Mothers series about 6 years ago, and I NEVER thought of that song.
Yet it was the first you thought of!
I was thinking of what to open with and it came to me...but not those years ago, lol!
Mama by BJ Thomas was a new thought too, and a nice song.
The John Lennon song had a story to it, and was on his 1st Plastic Ono Band album- his Primal Scream LP where he was working out his problems in song.
I've always liked that Carly Simon tune, and if you hear it a few times I'd bet you would too.
Happy to hear I won you back with Sylvia's Mother, and I can hear the anguish and shock- I've probably sounded like that myself at some point.
Start working out and being flexible, because I have an odd, sentimental and risky set coming in Part Two.
It will be a strange episode, as I had so much to choose from I just went with the first things I thought of.
And I will be mentioning you right at the beginning.
That's right...YOU!
So on terrestrial radio here in NYC and some affiliates around the country, people heard about you on're getting famous, lol!
Enjoyed your writing,

First, I wanna say that I know a lot of mutha's that don't have babies.

You and me both brother, lol!
Outstanding call on Paul Simon, more on that later.
The ones with the smileys...uhhhhh...I know Danzig, German group right...but the others...didn't think of them...hell, I don't even HAVE them, lol!
Great that we both think of songs individually and sometimes meet in the middle.

How in the world did I forget That's Alright Mama by Elvis?  I can't believe it.  I liked the story about where you got this rare gem, a TV Guide I believe you said.  I remember the old cereal boxes that had a cut out 45 on the back.  I remember getting one from Bobby Goldsboro, but I couldn't begin to remember what the song was or which cereal box it came off of.


I correctly predicted Mother And Child Reunion by Mr. Simon, but then again I knew you'd play him.  And it was a great choice.


The song Momma by BJ Thomas was cool, at least lyrically.


You kinda lost me on the next 3, John Lennon, Carly Simon and Melanie.  I didn't really care for those, but they certainly fit the theme.  That's just another example of me being me and not being flexible with the music.


But you reeled me back in with Sylvia's Mother.  What a great song by Dr. Hook.  You can just hear the anguish in the singer's voice.  Great song.


Enjoyed it Mike.

First, I wanna say that I know a lot of mutha's that don't have babies.


I'm predicting:


Mother And Child Reunion - Paul Simon

Mother - Danzig

Baby Love - Mother's Finest

Mother's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys - Willie Nelson


something by Mother Love Bone


of course, the smileys are for the ones that have a snowball's chance know where.  I'm listening now.
