I was thinking during the break about that somewhat lame Rain sound effect I used in the first half.
That got me to thinking about songs that have the Sound Of Rain in them.
And what was the first one I remember hearing?…
This is another of those Theme Series I long thought about doing.
I like the Rain- of course I like Snow better- but Rain can be very enjoyable, romantic, calming and a whole lot of other things.
I should hit on some songs you have forgotten…
Well, we have been through Birth, Childhood, Adolescence, Marriage, Child Rearing, Middle Age and Old Age.
And we have put it off for as long as possible, just like in Real Life.
But now...now it is Time For Us To Die!
It is part of The Cycle Of Life.
However, you should know me by…
In the last Chapter of the Cycle we hit Middle Age.
This week The Cycle Of Life takes us into Old Age.
And while it has its Joys, it comes with its own Perils too- Loneliness, Senility, the ever present Specter Of The Grim Reaper to name a…
Alright I an going to wrap up the Product Placement In Song, with paper and cardboard boxes.
It's time for some good old Junk Food and Where To Get It!
Candy, Soda, Ice Cream, Pizza, even Cigarettes to close out a meal, lol!…
It's more Product Placement In Song, if you can handle it...and I think you can, lol!
I have chosen Airlines to begin, Specific Brand Name Airlines hidden or obvious in the Tunes, and starting with some Heavy Hitters!
In doing these Shows I have…
After Magazines in the last Episode, I have the Product Placement of Newspapers in Music.
There should be a surprise in here.
And including one particular Paper rolled up and used as a Potential Bug Killer!…

I have more Product Placement, and I am going to start with a Song that really doesn't belong on a Rock Show.
But this little Rockollections Thing is a Free-Form Animal with a VERY Broad Policy about what can be included!
I'll give you a little…

In my attempts to present Our Music from Different Angles, it's a new Series on Product Placement!
I have done Namedropping, some Songdropping, so a natural procession down that same road.
Remember now, we are listening for Specific Brand…
I've got one more song about Kids Growing Up and Leaving Home, my favorite- saving the Best For Last!
After that, I'll play a snippet from a show I did in 2006, the only time the day of a show fell on my Birthday- and I tried to be cute, something I should never do, lol!…
No longer Teenagers, we are in our 20's or 30's now, Fall In Love and Get Married.
And the next step in The Cycle Of Life is Having Kids of Your Own.
Raising them, until the day comes when they grow up and Leave Home Themselves.
Those little ingrates, lol!
Join me and give a…
We are heading into the Teenage Years, and all the Growing Pains that come with that.
Falling In Love is one of them.
And let me tell you now if you are a Teenager- it will end in disaster, catastrophe, forget it, lol!…
In the time since our last Episode, we have grown up quite a bit- we can crawl, stagger, walk, get into mischief, even dance.
Our Parents have dreams for us, and we might even have our own.
These are Good Kids, nice ones.…
This St. Valentine’s Day Edition continues with a Valentine’s Day Song that shouldn't be played on Valentine’s Day, lol!
Then some Music for Lovers Active and Seeking.
A beautiful Cover of the Beatles, a #1 Song, and a Song that has always meant…
The Super Bowl is over, and now we can turn our attention to Valentine’s Day.
For it, I was thinking that under any circumstances, Lovers being kept apart is Sad.
With this damned Pandemic that I am sick of, it doesn't even have to be by a lot of…
This is it, the Grand Finale of the Salute To Elvis, a Series I should have done years ago!
Presley was the Rockabilly Cat, the Sexy Threat Posed By Rock & Roll, and he gave it a Face!
And he went from a Two-Room Shack to the Mansion On The…
It's too bad I was interfered with that first Birthday week or I would have been able to fit this whole Salute To Elvis into his January Birth Month.
As a matter of fact, I was thrown off today by other business.
And I am aware that some of you…
I will start this Episode off with one of the most Famous Duets in History, from a 1960 TV Special after The King's two-year stint in the Army.
Then a couple of more Songs About Elvis, including one that should surprise you.
Finally, some Songs…
I continue with my Salute To Elvis!
After a quick start by Presley, I'll play songs Made Famous By Him Done By Others.
I have a load of these, and I think I can guarantee you some surprises.
