It's the 9th Inning, the Finale to the Series, and I am expecting a Walk-Off Home Run!
A couple of thoughts- Willie Mays was the BEST player I ever saw, and when asked a Baseball question of any sort and you don't know the answer, say Babe Ruth.…
I am Keeping The Ball Rolling for my Salute To Baseball with this first of two final halves.
It is Week 3, and 3 is a Big Number in Baseball, as well as in another institution, and we will briefly explore the Spiritual Side of Baseball.…
Welcome to Week 2, I figure we are about in the Bottom of the Third Inning or Top of the Fourth now.
Continuing with this Salute To Baseball, the song most commonly connected with the Sport is Take Me Out To The Ballgame.
It's the Second Inning- no score, nobody on and nobody out!
We continue with Baseball, which has long been called Our National Pastime, but probably isn't anymore.
You'll hear about my Love/Hate Relationship with Baseball....like you…
This is the beginning of a Series done on impulse.
I have long intended to do a few shows about Baseball, but I always thought I would do it in the Spring, for Opening Day.
But realizing that the Playoffs start Tuesday, (there are Wild Card games…
After such a hot Summer for us here in NYC, it is nice to move into Autumn.
And we still have that annual phenomenon to enjoy...Indian Summer!
That will be noted in this Closing Half of the Autumn Show.…
The Salute To Autumn has become an almost Annual Tradition at Rockollections.
Rather than play he same Songs over and over, I always try to dig out ones you haven't heard in a long time, or maybe never have heard.
Autumn Songs tend to be…
Now we come to the sad part of Dog Appreciation.
It is the natural order of things that you will outlive your Dog- they live about 10-13 years but occasionally up to 20.
Their Death can be like the loss of a family member!…
It's back to Dog Appreciation, and I've been meaning to say I know there are Dog People and there are Cat People.
Some like Both, some like Neither.
In this Chapter, I'll finally play an old song that people singled out as a reason we NEEDED Rock…
This is it, the Finale to the 20th Anniversary of Sept. 11th 2001.
There is a New World Trade Center at Ground Zero!
And I'll have that other song, from 1989, that is so eerily relatable to the events of that day.…
The 20th Anniversary of 9/11 continues with some Poetry.
Then when my mind cleared 20 years ago, and it was time to return to the Radio Station, I brought 13 Songs that I would pick from to play.
Two of them were Bruce Springsteen songs,…
This Episode will contain Songs all written and recorded before the events of Sept 11 2001.
But applicable to what we needed on the days, weeks and months that followed.
Songs written with no clue they could be helpful in an unimaginable…
For some things Time seems to go by fast, it's hard to believe it's been Twenty Years.
I can still remember every feeling, every shocking reaction, even every smell here in NYC relating to the muslim extremist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and…
Dog Appreciation this time out starts with a song from a Cartoon...no, not the one you're probably thinking of, lol!
Then I'll move on to Dogs Big And Small, with some Comedy to accompany them!
And to be up front about it, I am not sure where I…
Dog Appreciation Day has passed but Dog Appreciation goes on for our Furry Friends.
I'll begin this Chapter with one for Beatles fans.
Then there is the matter of Barking- some do, some don't, some can't- and even if they do we oftentimes don't…
I am acknowledging and celebrating Dog Appreciation Day on August 26th.
Dogs begin life with an advantage in winning our hearts, they are such Cute Cuddly Puppies!
After Puppies I took a strange turn...well you'll hear it, lol!…
In these hot, humid Dog Days Of Summer, this Thursday August 26th is appropriately Dog Appreciation Day!
And for many of us the most famous Dog Song in Rock & Roll is Hound Dog by Elvis Presley.
There is a new Audio Process, new to me anyway,…
Here's the 2nd half of a Return To 1967.
This is a very good Episode, with things you may not have ever heard or thought of in quite some time- and again, an authentic slice of what we were listening to on FM Radio in that amazing year for Music.…
As I have said many times, 1967 is my favorite year for what was breaking out all over the place in Music, and also Radio!
And I return to that Year from time to time.
There is a definite Folk slant in this opening half, and I make no apologies…
