What in the world you thinking of laughing in the face of Love?

What on earth you tryin’ to do?

It’s up to you. Yeah, you…

Ad Astra per Ardua

John Winston/Ono Lennon

1940 – 1980

💜😢💋

It’s up to us. Yeah, us.

We have to save the world, each other.

If not us, then who? Who? Who?

Don’t laugh in the face of Love, Love.

Love

Trust me, darlin’.

Don’t let another day go by, my Love.

Hush

In Deep Purple, Funky, Groovy, Music, Rock, WDIZ!, Winter on November 12, 2012 at 1:42 am

No doubt about it, cats and kittens, the Hush of winter is now upon us. I am as crazy in Love with everything about this tune as I am about winter that it blows my mind!

Time for some shades of the deepest, Deep Purpley, purple on this wintery night.

Whoa… Dig it… Just. Dig. It. Hush, baby. Hush.

Hey, Best Witches, ghouls and ‘goyles! Hope your weekend was as spooktacular as mine!

Here’s the Sunshine Superman, Donovan, accompanied by a rather nice bit of witchy goth.

It must be the Season of the Witch. Must be.

The Eagles. Uh, yeah… Eagles… man… also accompanied by a rather nice bit of witchy goth. Who knew?

Raven hair. Ruby lips. Sparks fly from her fingertips… Ooh. Witchy. Way.

The incomparable Sarah Vaughan with That Old Black Magic that she weaves so well…

By the pricking of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.

~ Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I

Clap for the Wolfman

In Canadian, Groovy, Halloween, Music, People, Radio, Rock, The Guess Who, The Midnight Special, The Wolfman, Tributes, WDIZ!, Wolfman Jack on October 28, 2012 at 10:54 pm

The Wolfman in George LucasAmerican Graffiti

❤❤❤❤❤ the Wolfman Jack. That’s the fact. ❤ the Jack. They don’t make ’em like that anymore, ghouls and ‘goyles. Allan Freed, Dick Clark, neither. Nor fictional jocks Doctor Johnny Fever and Venus, baby, Flytrap. I ❤ these cats and old school radio like nobody’s business. They have been a HUGE and obvious influence on my life and this blog.

Spent the bulk of my youth watching The Wolfman host The Midnight Special. All THE best acts performed. For nine years beginning in 1972 everyone who was anyone from Carol Burnett to T-Rex was there. No kidding. Just plain everyone. AC/DC. Aerosmith. Earl Scruggs. George Carlin. The Cars! Uh, yeah. Blondie. Steve Martin. Cheap Trick. Heart! Uh, crazy, baby! Just crazy. Jimmie Walker. Ike and Tina. Everyone. Just everyone.

When The Wolfman played your record or had you appear on The ‘Special you had made it. If you hadn’t already arrived, you were presently. He had that much sway. Uh, yeah. He was almost singlehandedly responsible for the soundtracks of our youth. Radio and record industries were entirely different creatures than they are today. Almost everyone on the continent was listening to the same tunes, part of a musical collective consciousness and from coast to coast groovy cats like the Jack, Freed and Dick were in drivers seat.

The world wouldn’t be what it is today without the likes our beloved Wolfman. It just wouldn’t.

Hats off, dude. Hats off… and thanks a bunch.

So…? *shrug*

Hey? Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

The Guess.

The Guess Who?

Natch, baby. Natch. Ha-ha ha. Clap for The Wolfman.

No October would be complete at WDIZ! without Van the Man and a little Moondance from the album of the same name. Another best foray in the history of music… again, according to yours truly.

Hey, a fantabulous night to make romance beneath the cover of October skies…

Cool. Cool. Cool.

🍂

Whoa! Local weather forecast is for a high 5°C/41°F tomorrow! Time to get the poor-boy caps and the boots on! Yay! Maybe even a wee bit of fleeting snow on Wednesday?!

Here’s an all-time of all Time and Space. This tune has always been a favourite. Can’t remember it ever not.

The first really crisp weather of the season always puts me In the Mood for Glenn Miller and his orchestra, cats and kittens. Always. Autumn is such a groovy, jazzy Time of year, hey? Won’t be long now, boy, until the snow flies and sticks around for awhile.

One of THE best tunes EVER written. Just ever! As fab-u-lous today as the day it was released on 78 in ’39, baby. Here’s the marvellously mysterious Mr. Miller with In the Mood. Bah bah…
