Happy Birthday Baby! Thank You Very Much!

Like many of you, I grew up with Elvis in my life. My mom was what you call a ‘super fan’! I won’t mention her name, but her initials are – Sandra Carter 😎 It seems like his music was always playing in our house. By the time I was 5 years old I knew many of his songs by heart & would sing 🎤 them with very little coaxing 😊 Today is his birthday! So, Happy Birthday To the King of Rock & Roll! Thanks for all the music & memories!

“I don’t always listen to Elvis, but when I do, so do all the neighbors!” 💥

Happy Birthday! Thanks for all the music!

Have a great Hump Day y’all!

Saturday ‘Road Song’

Everyone loves a good ‘Road Song’. A perfect song to get behind the wheel and set off to… I have always loved this old John Kilzer song! Since Johns untimely death, it’s now available on iTunes with that entire album! In my opinion, one of the best rock albums EVER!

This has always been one of my favorites off this album. John was an Awesome musician! May he Rest In Peace!

Here’s the song –

I’m gonna get out on the Highway today myself! Y’all have a great weekend!

PS: Take a few minutes and put together a “Road Song Playlist” – Then get out and take a ride around your beautiful area of the world and enjoy!😎

Throwback Thursday…

Here’s an interesting #throwbackthursday. 50 years ago today (that’s 1969 folks) David Bowie released the single “Space Oddity”.  What’s really cool about it? Major Tom beat Neil & Buzz to the Moon by 9 days! I had no idea! 9 days later (July 20th 1969) Apollo 11 landed on the moon 🌙

This my be the only time I have mentioned Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin & David Bowie in the same sentence 😊

So, that’s my little tidbit for today 😊 Have a GREAT #Throwbackthursday!

When in Doubt – Tuesday Songs – 2 For Tuesday!

It’s COLD! Even colder tonight, and tomorrow, forget about it! Highs in the 20’s… So we’ve been going through our albums… Reorganizing, by band, by release date, alphabetically… Yea, I know… But I do Love listening to music! I saved a couple of songs out just perfect for a cold, wintry Tuesday!

Their first & maybe, their best… I’ve got the cassette, the CD, & the Album-dont know where that 8 track got off too 😊 The sound of the Vinal is still the best!

A great day to listen to music 😊

Stay Warm!
