Driving last night, Safe At Home played on my A Good Feeling To Know Radio station on Apple Music. Interestingly, that Souther Hillman Furay tune that opened side two of the original vinyl served as the title of the blog a year ago today.   Right after, came Pure Prairie League’s Two Lane Highway. It made me wonder if my Songs of the Road playlist included that song. It did not! Wondered how that happened.   I actually did a search of “highway” on that play list. The third a...
On or after or sometimes before this day – always a Saturday eve, my (fraternal) lodge would hold a “sweethearts dance” and for the last couple of years it did not happen and a several couple got together on our own; this year the pandemic offered an easy excuse. Hopefully, next year will see its return. In the meantime on the first time Valentine’s Day fall on the same day I blog I share my Songs of Love playlist.   Each link works and I even added two songs to the list, 65...

Annually, I offer a rather short blog with a concerted purpose: a musical start to welcome the new year.  We reached that moment with the most popular of the playlists I post on YouTube and Apple Music: Song To Ring in the New Year.  Please do enjoy and share it.   As I explained in prior years, this curated list reflects more my musical taste in comparison to the holiday songs setlist which “accept” selections proposed by others; that helps explain that lengthy playlist.   S...

President Obama, during the DNC, tweeted his “summer” playlist see pic at left). Since this blog falls on the weekend between the DNC and the RNC, it seems a good time to re-share my “State of Our Union playlist; I created it before the 2019 annual presidential speech. Some people create playlists all the time. It predates streaming. People would make their own tapes. My daughter would make CDs for the car. For me, just as with drafting these blog, something needs to muse me....
Looking back several weeks I wrote of concert plans. Earlier this week I emailed with my friend Jason about the postponement of an amazing show scheduled for last Thursday at the Kings Theatre; we had plans to see John Fogerty; from Fogerty’s site we knew for a few weeks of the show’s postponement but LiveNation only emailed something formal this week (that remains a whole other discussion and I read that many ticket holders expressed upset how many events continue to hold th...
At the end of every year, I compose a review of the top ten shows that I attended. This year. I posted my commentary to my website on New Year’s Day. While I prefer to post on the eve, this year and last I posted on the first day of the year. As with 2018, many of the shows received coverage in this Gotham space (View the links to review those past blogs also linked in the commentary.).   Interestingly one-half of the 2018 top list list finds representation in the list that f...
Let’s Welcome the New Year with Some Musical Cheer   In a comment on a blog my friend Paul suggested making today’s blog short.   Traditionally, the blog runs long because it includes a list; it did last year.   This commentary, in a nod to Paul's comment on my comment to last Tuesday's blog and Friday’s blogger who also encourages me to offer shorter blogs, I simply share my verified playlist to herald the new year. Interestingly, unlike the happy holidays playlist now at an...
As Summer approaches I traditionally look forward to posting a list of free concerts by originals artists. I viewed the Long Island listings and found a bevy of cover bands, many in rock genres I enjoy. At this time, I remain unready to lock in dates the way I might if I bought tickets for a show. I see no reason to list shows and possibly lock in dates for shows that might be fun but not something “must see” or “must experience.” Each year we lose fave artists as times catch...
Last weekend we celebrated 34. The actual anniversary fell one week ago today; I noted it in last week’s blog (‘Cause it matters). We chose to officially celebrate on the eve before. Interestingly, we chose the “events” based on an unplanned interruption several weeks earlier.   I scored “twofer” tickets for Jersey Boys on February 16 at the New World Stages but a manhole fire in the street outside the entrance canceled that eve’s show. We were walking down the south side of ...

File this under "Canadian Cops have too much free time." From the HuffPost: Talk about a bum note: A Montreal man says he’s facing a $117 traffic ticket just for singing in his car. In September, Taofik Moalla was driving home and singing along to “Gonna Make You Sweat,” a 1990 dance music smash by C+C Music Factory. Y’know, the one that goes, “Everybody dance now!” CLICK HERE to remember. The 38-year-old Moalla was grooving to the beat when police suddenly pulled him o...
