ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN REMEMBERED 2016 PT.1

Again, it's that strange time between the deaths of George Harrison, November 29, 2001 and John Lennon, December 8, 1980- two former Beatles.

Without The Beatles, I don’t love Music like I do- simple as that!

So the loss of any of the Fab Four will always be personal.

Doing these shows, I try to bring a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING 2016 PT.2 END

Bob, Sadie and Everyone,

Not only is Rick Nelson in here, but a Beatle as well!

The Holiday is getting very close as people are making there way Home For Thanksgiving.

Something about Thanksgiving brings out the Farmlands, the Country Roads, Country Comforts for this City Guy!

Maybe because it seems a prettier Trip Home.

Or maybe it's just the Vegetables, lol!

So a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS:VOL2- COVERED BY THE BEATLES PT.2

I'll finish the album, With The Beatles, right away.

I still can't get over the fact that album was released on the day President Kennedy was assassinated!

Then I'll move on to what was the cause of much confusion and many differences over here in the U.S.A.

The Beatles released singles and EP's in England with songs they never put on albums.

But they were on albums in a mishmash over here, so that's why I am using the UK releases as my guide.

For those who don't know, EP…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VOL2- COVERED BY THE BEATLES PT.1

Here's a now-and-then series I started in February 2011, Covered By The Beatles.

As you should be aware, the Beatles put many older Rock & Roll songs, mainly from America, on their early albums and EP's.

So the simple idea is to play the Beatles Cover Version followed by the Original Version.

And I'll be playing these the proper way to hear them, in the order they originally were released over in England.

The selections in this chapter will all be from the LP, With The…

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

And they are in the latest show, Beatles everywhere, lol!

Much more of The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About Loneliness.

Again I say, these Songs Read Well Written Down On Paper!

Without the Music or the Arrangements.

And again I ask you to Please Listen To The Words...The Lyrics, of the 60's Poets.

They are still touching to me.

And I am a Highly Opinionated…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE FASHION SHOW PT.4

Beatles are in here, it will sneak up on you, lol!

It's back to the Ladies on The Rockollections Fashion Show.

We are all adults here right?

Not all Ladies dress for Fashion, for some...ahem...it's Business!

Or Pleasure!

And there is something about a Woman In Red.

I'll end with a Song about the cheapest way to "Obtain" a Dress, with a certain risk involved.

My Venture Into The…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: THE FASHION SHOW PT.1

A rare song from Paul McCartney that appeared on a CD EP is in here. Good song!

After my CATscare, I decided to go back to some old ideas that have been floating around for years and just do them!

From a man who knows next to nothing about Fashion, it's The Rockollections Fashion Show.

I do know Songs though, and this should be a lot of fun using Our Music.

This will be a Series, and let's begin with Style!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: 4TH OF JULY PT.1

A Beatle start to this one!

THIS IS AN ENCORE ORIGINALLY BROADCAST JULY 3, 2012.

When you hear me say it is America's 236th Birthday, kindly substitute 240th

Celebrating the Declaration Of Independence (my favorite document ever!)- older than me, but I'm pretty damned independent too!

I had long had this idea for an opening set…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHN AND MARY PT.2

A man we all love in this one, both Solo and with The Beatles:

Like I said last time, it caught my eye that this was Celebrate Your Name Week, a holiday established in 1997 by Jerry Hill.

A week for appreciating Names in general, and to have fun getting to know more about Names.

I will break the rules and make it for two weeks- Songs For John And Mary.

I did John songs in the first half…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: VALENTINE HANGOVER PT.2 END

There are TWO Beatles in here!

Another Look At that part of Love that has the bumps in the road and the bruises that come with them.

All part of this Valentine's Hangover!

Centering on what is maybe the most frustrating aspect of Love, even for patient people (leaves me out, lol!)- waiting for it to come along and find us.

I'll bring it all home…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: TIME PT.1

A Beatle to start the Whole Series!

For the first show of the New Year, a few songs for the Turning Of The Year.

The Passage of Time.

Life is pretty much all about Time!

We look at Time with a mixture of happiness and regret.

And there are so many songs about it, I have long wanted to do a Series on the subject of Time.

The Time Has Come.

It may be just me, but I think this is going to be…

Beatles Christmas Message 1965 is in here.

Our 60's Christmas Party continues with Music exclusively from that Decade.

Pop, Rock, Psychedelia and Folk will all be included.

But the centerpiece as always is the Beatles Christmas Message 1965- their 3rd one, smack dab in the…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BEATLE JOHN- IN HIS OWN WORDS

December 8th, 1980 was the night John Lennon died.

There are famous appearances on WNEW-FM by John with Scott Muni and Dennis Elsas that have been talked about and written about.

But no one ever seems to mention an insightful interview of John done by Rosko at the station over the telephone before those, in 1969!

That will be the centerpiece for this closing Episode.

Rest in peace, George and John!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: BEATLE GEORGE- IN HIS OWN WORDS

It's that odd time where we are between the deaths of George Harrison, November 29, 2001 and John Lennon, December 8, 1980- two former Beatles.

If you had the joy of growing up with the Beatles, as they grew with us, and watched them develop into the what I will always call the Greatest Group That Ever Existed, then you know the sadness and mourning the loss of those 2 lads brought us.

I can honestly say- no Beatles, then I don't love music the…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SHOW ABOUT NOTHING PT.1

Sadie & Bob,

I just remembered, it ain't the Beatles lol, but Rick Nelson is in here!

Alright, admittedly these shows are inspired by the great Seinfeld television program.

There will be some sound bites from it.

One interesting thing, while picking out songs for this show I discovered there are a lot of them…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: FRENCH CLASS PT.2 END

I forgot the Beatles were in here!

Summer School French Class wraps up with Rock & Roll and Pop Songs that have French in them.

After the first one, these might be a bit more unknown.

Of course, that depends on who's doing the listening!

Plus there are times in your Life that you hear and…
