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. […]
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 […]
My granddaughter Abby has been walking around singing the song from “Frozen”, a couple of songs by Katy Perry and other “latest hits” so I decided it was time to get her acquainted with some of the classics, and what better band than the greatest of all time, The Beatles? A couple of nights we […]

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 […]
Santa and his reindeer sing “White Christmas” with style.
It was 33 years ago tonight around 10:50 pm that John Lennon was gunned down in front of his apartment in New York City across from Central Park, shot 4 times in the back by Mark David Chapman. Rushed to the ER of Roosevelt Hospital he was declared dead 17 minutes later at 11:07pm. Earlier […]
