It’s The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About War And Peace.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL6- ODDS AND ENDS PT.2

I talked about Cocaine a bit in Part One, and that made me think of an old tape I have had for years.

I brought it to the Radio Station one time and played it for Engineer Ken Stanley, and I always knew someday I would find a use for it.

It's a scene from a famous TV show about LSD,…

More Deep Cuts for Here Comes Summer Part 4, but maybe not quite as deep as the previous Chapter.

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HERE COMES SUMMER PT.2

Damn, Summer has arrived with a Vengeance, it is HOT!!!

More Summer Songs, including one by the Beach Boys not played very often- and if you grew up at a certain time I would have to think they symbolize Summer more than any other Group.

I don't do Summer every year, but when I do I seem…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.9

  1. It was surprising to me in the course of this Series how difficult it was to separate Carnivals, Circuses, Arcades, Amusement Parks...and throw in Fairs!
