We continue Rockollections Goes To The Movies with that most American of Movies...The Western.
Actually, for many years now I have been making a list of tunes for a Series, The Wild West!
It's just a matter of time until I get around to it, and some of the songs will be played here.
I fear I might be taking the risk of losing some of the female listeners with this Episode.
But Dear Ladies, I will be presenting the music in my usual way, and many hit songs have come from Westerns over the years.
And this goes for the Guys also- trust me, this will be fun, and good music is always good music, no matter where it comes from!
Although they are not made nearly as much nowadays as in the past, for anyone who thinks Westerns are not a valid form of entertainment, see John Ford's brilliant and groundbreaking The Searchers.
John Wayne was fantastic in this role- not a hero, not even a nice man.
And there are some Rock & Roll connections to this flick you may not be aware of.
These and other Classics will be heard as we head Out West!
Everybody saddle up and take a ride with me!
