ROCKOLLECTIONS: BLACKOUTS PT.4 END

Time to wrap up this short series on Blackouts.

I'll start with a few more Songs Of Seduction for those Birth-Spikers.

As a moderately successful Seducer, I can never hear too many of those, lol!

Then it…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BLACKOUTS PT.3

Got two more parts on Blackouts- apparently I haven't seen the Light yet, lol!

Looking back at the one in 2003- the one I enjoyed least of all- the last I heard about it was that it originated from Somewhere In Ohio.

Had something to do with an…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING PT.2

Like with every Rockollections Show, I get to make a statement, send a message.

As I have said many times, Music is my form of a Western Union Telegram.

For this final half, a couple of songs for those who, for one reason or another, Can’t Go…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING PT.1

A different kind of start this year, as I am perplexed by all this Black Friday business.

Seems to me that instead of people being thankful for what they HAVE, they are more interested in what they WANT!

Once again, I remind you that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BLACKOUTS PT.2

I am late with this Anniversary, but as I have stated, here in the Northeast we have had major Blackouts in 1965, 1977 and 2003.

In each case, and for the future, there are certain Essentials you should have.

But there was one always dependable,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BLACKOUTS PT.1

While hanging out with the Saints last week I overlooked the Anniversary of our First Great Blackout, November 9th 1965!

Time is relative, so this week a look at Blackouts that have hit New York City and the Northeast over the years.

We have had…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.4 END

Well, this is it, I wrap it up with the Saints.

I had a ball going through my Music Library pulling out these songs for such an Unconventional Topic.

I'll begin with an A-List Group you wouldn't expect to hear on a Saints show- never, ever with…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.3

One week ago it was All Saints Day.

I pulled out a bunch of songs in acknowledgement, and I am not the kind of guy to just put them back unplayed- there were too many good ones in there.

However you feel about Saints is not important, although I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.2

St. Peter is a big-name Saint, he appears in very, very many songs, but sometimes you have to listen for it.

That's the case with the first two songs in this Chapter.

I'll finally get around to that All Saints Day/Halloween…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: ALL SAINTS PT.1

Rockollections falls terrestrially on November 1st, All Saints Day!

It's a sort of Anti-Halloween show.

And you should know that without All Saints Day, there is no Halloween!

I will cover that, but…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAPPY HALLOWEEN PT.2 END

I did Voodoo, now let's have some Hoodoo!

And with all those spells, curses, etc. that we've been concerned with, I must warn you to watch out for Potions.

Do I believe in this stuff?…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAPPY HALLOWEEN PT.1

It’s that scary time of the year again, Halloween.

And time for a Rockollections Theme within a Theme.

Voodoo!

With all the casting spells, curses, dances and everything else that goes with…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE 60'S POETS- POVERTY PT.2

It's The 60's Poets, and the Subject is Poverty.

Any show of this sort must include Bob Dylan.

He's in here at his Poetic Best, and it may also be the Ultimate Namedropping Song in terms of not just the Quantity but the QUALITY of the Names…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE 60'S POETS- POVERTY PT.1

This is the 4th in a Series of 5 Shows on Topics By The 60's Poets.

This time the Subject is Poverty.

Credit must be given to Scott Muni, as he did similar shows during his early years at WNEW-FM.

And it…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.4 END

It's the final stretch of the Harvest Moon Ball, and it occurred to me that we had done a lot of Dancing, but hadn't paid any attention to those who Won't, Can't, or just plain Don't Want To Dance!

So that calls for a musical acknowledgement of the NON-Dancers!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.3

A Rocking start to this Chapter of our Harvest Moon Ball.

And the most obvious, anticipated song will finally be played this time out.

Suffice it to say I have Harvested some genuinely good Music that I would like to share with…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.2

Opening up this second chapter for our Harvest Moon Ball, a song that has been interpreted by very many artists and in many ways.

I will play you the original version, a Rocker from 1958.

Then I will play one of those interpretations- as the…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.1

This is going to be fun, a Harvest Moon Ball!

The Harvest Moon came very early this year, but occasionally it is in October.

Before the invention of electric lights, for generations farmers knew that Full Moon as the Harvest Moon because it…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FREE FORM #5 PT.2

This guy, ME, is attempting to just do a nice Free Form Radio Show, keeping in mind it’s all just Music and just a Rock Show!

I have a Set of REDONE Songs we all should know in here.

Then a tune that starts out nice enough, and if you're…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FREE FORM #5 PT.1

I am going to just play Songs with no Theme.

My trouble is I tend to think in Connections, so maybe a wee bit of that.

Here’s how I tried to select the Songs- they were close by, they should be played somewhere, and I LIKE them.…
