All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

Thursday , 4, December 2014 Comments Off on All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

I’m working on a post about Holiday songs that will be ready  in a couple of days, but until then I thought I’d post my favorite Rock and Roll Holiday song video by the wonderful Mariah Carey. It’s three weeks until Christmas Day and chances are I will listen to this song each of those 21 days. […]

“…and keep reaching for the stars.”

I never knew Casey Kasem personally, but after listening to him on his American Top 40 radio and TV broadcasts week after week, he was a substantial part of my early life. No doubt it was listening to his rock n’ roll trivia questions each week that sparked my interest in the backgrounds and untold […]

Over at Mental Floss, they have a post up about “50 Things That Turn 50 in 2014” and there are some really cool things listed that are turning 50 this year. I turned 9 years old in 1964, so I remember most of these (obviously NOT things like who was born that year) and thought […]

I didn’t go see the Despicable Me 2 movie (nor have I seen the first Despicable Me film) but while watching ABC World News with David Muir tonight, he played a clip and mentioned that this video by Pharrell Williams from the Despicable Me 2 movie soundtrack has been nominated for best original song at […]

The Beatles On The Ed Sullivan Show February 9, 1964

It was 50 years ago tonight. I was 8 ½ years old and my mom, dad and I gathered in the living room (my little brother was asleep in his room, as most 2 year olds should have been at that hour) to sit in front of our black and white TV to watch the […]

I’ve always liked Jazz, from the moment I first heard it. In fact, probably before I even knew I had heard it because if I remember correctly my first exposure to it was in the theme music of some late-50’s to mid-60’s TV shows. It wasn’t until years later than I realized so many of […]
