Dale Hood Beautiful Noise Thursday @ 6pm
They say Opposites Attract. That is especially true when it comes to music. My show Thursday night took two songs with opposite words brought together for everyone’s listening enjoyment.
The first song, GOOD Lovin’ by the Young Rascals and second song Baby did a BAD BAD Thing, set the tone for the night.
Bet you didn’t know the original title for the Tom Petty and Heartbreaker hit LAST dance with Mary Jane was originally Indiana Girl
Or the story behind the Only the YOUNG, Journey hit,
in which a 16 year old boy on his death bed, who the band visited in the hospital, had such an affect and inspiration on the band.
Our listeners loved the theme of the show and showed their appreciation throughout with positive feedback!!

No Particular Place to Go by Chuck Berry
At the time Chuck Berry wrote that song, he literally had no place to go, as he was in prison.
Once he got out, he released that single, which cracked the top 10.
That’s All Right by Elvis Presley
On the evening of July 5, 1954, during recording session at Sun Studio, Elvis Presley was on acoustic rhythm guitar, Scotty Moore was on lead guitar, and Bill Black was on string bass.
During a break between recordings, Presley began improvising an up-tempo version of Arthur Crudup's song "That's All Right, Mama.
Producer Sam Phillips, at the suddenly upbeat atmosphere, asked the three to start again so he could record it.
It became the debut single recorded and was released by Elvis Presley with "Blue Moon of Kentucky" as the B-side.
It was ranked number 113 on the 2010 Rolling Stone magazine list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
It is the start of what would become Rock n Roll.
Give A Little Bit by Supertramp
The song was written many years before it was recorded.
Singer Rodger Hodson wrote the song when he was a teenager, around 1970 when a lot of the peace and love of the 1960s was still alive.
But he waited about six years before bringing it to the band to record.
I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
That song was written by the former Motown producers Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris.
When Perren and Fekaris left Motown, they formed their own production company and scored big with Peaches & Herb, taking "Reunited" to #1.
When they wrote "I Will Survive," they had nobody to sing it.
The pair agreed that the next diva that came their way would get the song.
That diva was Gloria Gaynor.
Craig Looney Looney’s Tunes Sunday @ 6:30pm
As we near our 4 year anniversary of broadcasting, Inside The Gates Radio has come a very, very long way.
Delaine Faris joined me early in the broadcast to announce her new show that will be presented every Wednesday at 6:30 P.M., The Journey.
Her first broadcast will be September 21 and we should all be incredibly excited. This will give us 6 consecutive days of live programming on our small, but powerful community radio station.
We started this show fast with some early Boss from 1973, Rosalita and kept the vibe going in fine fashion through the evening. All four regular segments were simply great...
Then and Later featured the great Delbert McClinton...Then from 1973...Later from a new album in 2022.
The Battle Of The Bands between heavyweights, The Doors (Riders On The Storm) vs. David Bowie (TVC15) was a classic. Jim Morrison's gang jumped to the early lead and never relinquished it.
Cover Me Up segment went back to 1968 and the incredible Beatles White Album offering Dear Prudence as the original, followed immediately by a cover from Al Di Meola from his 2020 album, Across The Universe. Most unusual!
Our Sing Along didn't disappoint as we all journeyed back to the 60's to sing and dance to The Kingsmen's, Louie, Louie. Sure we took some liberties with the lyrics, but so did the Kingsmen. The choruses were particularly strong!
Each show we try to wind it down to a very mellow pace and our last 3 tracks played did just that. We started with a great one from Ana Popovic (Slow Dance) followed by Tears For Fears (Woman In Chains) and closed the show with Rod Stewart and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with the most sublime, Stop Loving Her Today.
I am so very excited for a Special Mid-Week Artist show that I'll have the honor of presenting, this Wedesday, 9/14. The life, career and music of Bonnie Raitt. This will be unforgettable. Join the LooneyMan promptly at 6:30 P.M. to dig deep into the incredible music she has recorded through the decades. Bonnie Raitt...as you've never heard her before...only on Inside The Gates Radio...
Keep on Rockin!

Candle in the Wind (1997 version)
Elton John sang a revised version of "Candle in the Wind" (also called "Goodbye, England's Rose") with new lyrics by Bernia Taupin at Princess Diana's funeral on Sept. 6, 1997. The single was released on Sept. 13 and became the best-selling single of all time in the UK. It was the second best-selling physical single after Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" and the global proceeds went to Diana's charities. Elton received the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for this version.
