Jeff Weigl Beats Working Friday @ 4pm
Catch Bull at Four is the sixth studio album by Cat Stevens. The title is taken from one of the Ten Bulls of Zen, a series of short poems and accompanying drawings used in the Zen tradition to describe the stages of a practitioner's progress toward enlightenment.
The song I’ll Be Doggone represents three firsts for Marvin Gaye: It was his first million-selling record, his first chart-topping R&B single and his first song to be co-written by Smokey Robinson and his fellow Miracles bandmates, Pete Moore and Marv Tarplin.
The song Saturday in the Park by Chicago contains some of the most famous nonsense singing in rock: after Robert Lamm sings the line, "Singing Italian songs," he sings some made up words approximating the Italian language.
The origins of "The Little Old Lady (from Pasadena)" stem from a very popular Dodge ad campaign in southern California that launched in early 1964. Starring actress Kathryn Minner, the commercials showed the white-haired elderly lady speeding down the street driving a modified Dodge. She would stop, look out the window and say "Put a Dodge in your garage, Hon-ey!" Part of this lore was that many an elderly man who died in Pasadena would leave his widow with a powerful car that she rarely, if ever, drove. According to the story, used car salesmen would tell prospective buyers that the previous owner of a vehicle was "a little old lady from Pasadena who only drove it to church on Sundays," thus suggesting the car had little wear.
Dinnis Keefe Song Sense Saturday @ 6:30pm
SongSense is a Saturday radio show, so I always feel the responsibility to remind you, my treasured listeners, that the week is truly over, nothing more can be accomplished on a Saturday end-of-day, so it’s time to shrug off responsibilities for a while and let me step up and kick in the doors, kick out the jams and clear the decks for you!
This past Saturday I came right out of the box with Ted Nugent’s 1976, “Dog Eat Dog.” I’d forgotten just how effective the old Motor City Madman was at operating at level 11 — he could perfectly channel the thunder, grind and roar of Detroit at its peak. (I wonder what a Detroit song would sound like now…crickets and slow rust?!)
Craig Looney Looney’s Tunes Sunday @ 6:30pm
*Great crowd at the start and the number of listeners doubled within the first 30 minutes (fashionable late arrivals)
*My opening invited all listeners to check out our new video presentation now linked on the website
*My fourth song, The Temptations, My Girl, was well received with many texts indicating memories they had of the early times listening to the track.
*The Then and Later Segment was very well received as Darly Hall seems to be extremely well liked by our audience
*The Battle Of The Bands between Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears provided too much of a dilemma, resulting in the same folks voting for both bands (that's what 'no rules' does for ya')
*The last three songs of my show, Guinnevere (Crosby, Stills & Nash), Have I Told You Lately (Van Morrison) and On The Dunes (Donald Fagen) received high praise as great tracks to close a well-appreciated show.
I had so much fun presenting it and got great comments about the vibe it created...
