Here is the first of a series of shows, a Salute To Fathers, leading up to Father’s Day and going a few days beyond.
I did it for Mothers, so it is Fathers turn.
And like with the Mothers, listening to the words is mandatory,
I am not wallpaper! I don’t DO background music!
So kick off your shoes and get a cold one, or a hot one, or a room temperature one (those winos!) and give me a little bit of your time. It's a different way to present our music.
We will musically explore songs from Sons about Fathers, Daughters about Fathers, going the other way Fathers to their Sons and Daughters, some humor, Good Fathers, Bad Fathers, Fathers I wasn’t sure about (lol), Conflicts between Fathers and Their Children, some Miscellaneous Songs that didn’t fit any category, and finally Unfulfilled, Unfinished Business and Death.
By the final shows, I will have to issue a disclaimer.
This first chapter will contain a very popular song that you know, and have always heard with a bleep in it- no bleepin' bleep this time!
In these endeavors, the singer/songwriters, musical poets and storytellers will be checking in, with the usual surprises.
Oh, and I apologize for the 1st song, if I had to do over again I would have chosen another way to open.
There's no way to go back and change it- it's one of the dangers of trying to be cute, and reaching for a song without playing it first or thinking it through.
Let the Paternity Suit begin.
