Weekend Cruise

Posted by Artster63


Hey guys, the Brunette and I are hitting the road, headed for the coast. That's the destination us South Texans hit for a quick weekend getaway. Beaches, fishing, tubing, seafood and bars. Oh and did I mention BARS.

We look forward to hanging with you next weekend at the concert. Rainbow will featured.

I hope you all have a great safe weekend and we'll catch up to you on Monday.

Be safe. Later.

Weekend Concert Series: Thin Lizzy

Posted by Artster63

We're off to a late start with this week's line up. We've got Thin Lizzy on tap and they're setting up as we speak. Some overcast clouds here in South Texas have kept a lot of folks from joining us, but the hardcore rockers are in da' house. Or I guess better said, in da' yard.

This is a compilation of two live performances from Dublin and Toronto in 1977. For you trivia buffs, John Earle plays the sax on Dancing in the Moonlight and Huey Lewis shows his harmonica skills on Baby Drives Me Crazy.

The Brunette and I want to say thanks for coming and we're sure you'll enjoy the concert. Here are the ground rules for you first timers.

Concert Rules:

- Glass containers ARE allowed
- Everyone has General Admission lawn seats... so no need to try and sneak in
- Tailgating ALLOWED in the concert
- Respect the space of others. If their blanket is laid out, DON'T step on it
- A fully staffed playground area will be available so that mom and dad can enjoy the concert

Weekend Concert Series: Led Zeppelin

Posted by Artster63

Hey guys. Well here we are again with another weekend party under way. The Brunette was nice enough to restock the fridge, so we're ready for another great turn out.

This week we're sharing Led Zeppelin's original 1976 release of their July 1973 Madison Square Garden show "The Song Remains The Same". An awesome sampling, at that time, of some of their hits as well as some new tunes off of the Houses of the Holy album which had just been released a few months earlier in '73. Alright, alright enough of the chit-chat. In case you guys forgot the ground rules I've posted them below. Move your chairs closer to the stage. Remember everyone has front row seats at this concert. And now on with the show.

Concert Rules:

- Glass containers ARE allowed
- Everyone has General Admission lawn seats... so no need to try and sneak in
- Tailgating ALLOWED in the concert
- Respect the space of others. If their blanket is laid out, DON'T step on it
- A fully staffed playground area will be available so that mom and dad can enjoy the concert

Classic Rock Weekend Trip

Posted by Artster63

Man I hope you guys had a chance to kick back this weekend and catch the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert here at 70's Classic Rock. The Brunette and I thank all of you who showed up and look forward to next week's show. But before I head out to the yard and start cleaning up here's a few stops you can make on your drive back home.





My buddy, Davek, a press photographer from L.A., has a pretty cool new blog called "Vintage Tour Jackets". He's got plenty of images and quite the collection of classic rock tour jackets from the 70's and 80's. He's also thrown in some concert images he's taken from his "in the crowd" vantage point. You can check out tour jacks from The Eagles - Long Run Tour (my personal favorite) to The Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Boston just to mention a few.

Davek also shares a little history and/or story behind each jacket. You can really appreciate the special place these items hold in his heart and memories. If your an all things classic rock fan like me you definitely need to do a stop by to Davek's site.





Are you an artist as in to draw or paint and looking to showcase your work? Are you a musician with your own compositions looking for an audience? Or a budding Steven Spielberg with some projects that are ready for the public? If you fall into any of these categories you need to check out this website. Sarah at PutItOn.com is doing some serious PR work for their new website. Here's her pitch - "Hello! I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and let your readers know about it, it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out. Thank you!" -Sarah at PutItOn.com

Hey guys I couldn't have said it better myself. What's really cool about this is that for any creative need an individual or company may have they can find it centrally located at this site. Looking for a new jingle? Check it out. Need some new artwork for the new home? Check it out. Just interested in some new Indie tunes? Check it out. It's a great concept so please check it out and see if we can't support these artists. Like their tag line says, "Home to the world's undiscovered artists".



Roger Campo: What's Your Addiction This is an interesting one. A few Sundays ago (that's usually when I clean out my inbox) I came across an email from one of our listeners at 70's Classic Rock Radio on Live365.com. The message simply said, "Check out "What’s Your Addiction” & “Spiritual Detective”and consider adding this singer/songwriter to your station". Now I've received several of these requests before and I listen to the music and I'm sorry but I can be somewhat critical. A Simon Cowell complex comes to mind, but as requested I went to Roger Campo's MySpace page and checked out some of the tunes. Man, the more I listened the more i liked. Within 5 minutes of hearing the last song I had purchased and downloaded the album onto my iPod.

Usually when I'm approached regarding suggested selections for the radio station or my blog, I'm typically looking for a certain sound or rhythm that is distinctive of what I deem to be "classic rock". I'm usually disappointed by the result. With Roger's music though, I could pick up a definite influence of soft rock and some soul as well. It's worth checking out folks. Let me know what you think.


Well that's it for this weekend guys. Uh-oh the Brunette is waving a huge garbage bag at me. Time to get started on the yard cleanup. Thanks again for coming by and let's all have a ROCKIN' week. Later.

Weekend Concerts: Lynyrd Skynyrd

Posted by Artster63

The Brunette and I want to invite you to enjoy the music we're listening to today. Every weekend we kickback and enjoy a live album from the past. This week we're hanging with Lynyrd Skynyrd and spinning their "One More From the Road" album. In my opinion the only way to really listen to Skynyrd is LIVE. So bring your lawn chairs and some extra SPF 30 protection. It's suppose to be sunny and 91 for a high all weekend. Oh, we always have something to drink on-hand, but depending on the turn out you may want to BYOB.



Concert Rules:

- Glass containers ARE allowed
- Everyone has General Admission lawn seats... so no need to try and sneak in
- Tailgating ALLOWED in the concert
- Respect the space of others. If their blanket is laid out, DON'T step on it
- A fully staffed playground area will be available so that mom and dad can enjoy the concert

That's it. Thanks for coming and hope you enjoy the show. Be sure to let us know who you'd like to hear at future concerts.
