Emmylou Harris in Carre Amsterdam Holland

I wanted to take a trip to Amsterdam to see (...) the red light district over there but more important to attend Emmylou Harris' concert in theatre Carré.
Stupid me, I was too late to buy tickets, the concert was sold out.
At this very moment I will compensate myself starting watching two dvd's with concerts by Emmylou. An old 80's concert with some hits from that time and a bootleg dvd of the superb concert she did in Belgium Brussels 2006_may_26 with Mark Knopfler (only available for true fans...). In my mind I will be present tonight at my all time favorite female singer's concert.... Toi toi Emmy.
Did I offer you this superb concert already ? No time to check, let me know.

Otis Redding sits on the dock of the bay

I am not so much into deep soul or Motown soul. I like just some 'standards' and a few more simple or obscure soul. One or two month's ago I offered you Aretha Franklin on behalf of Marie_José.
I need a reason to write and post about a particular artist...... A wise man just needs half a word.... :-)
Yesterday I did some research about The Rolling Stones first albums and I came to their That's How Strong My Love Is written by Roosevelt Jamison and Pain in my heart written by Naomi Neville. Great songs in my opinion and also performed by the late great Otis Redding. So I think it is time to offer you this performer which I could appreciate at the time and still do for this kind of songs.

Otis Redding - The dock of the bay_the definitive collection.
02-Mr Pitiful
03-Love Man
04-(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
06-I Can't Turn You Loose
08-Hard To Handle
10-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)
11-My Lover's Prayer
12-These Arms Of Mine
13-That's How Strong My Love Is
14-Cigarettes And Coffee
15-My Girl
16-A Change Is Gonna Come
17-I've Been Loving You Too Long
18-Try A Little Tenderness
19-Pain In My Heart
20-Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay

Should the comment section ...... Yes yes !

Veronica_Cees van Zijtveld - Showtime

The third, picked from my old offshore radio archives, of radio Veronica broadcasts is by Cees van Zijtveld. And again quite an old one, this over 40 years old studio mono-recording...

DJ Jan van Veen announces in his intro this lively sunday morning program. Left out is the news and some of the commercials. The ones still there present are by famous Dutch actor Henk van Ulsen who does Satin hairspray and female singer Trea Dobbs who does a limonade commercial on her hit Ploem ploem jenka...
At the end you will hear a piece of the Belgium Top10 at the moment. A special note to the great J'ai pleuré by Belgium Claudia Silva. Such a nice voice. I wonder what's become of her.

After the closure of off-shore radio Veronica (I believe he did the news on that sad last day) Cees van Zijtveld worked for the Dutch public radio services and retired 2006_july.

Poll : How often to do you visit my Blog ?

I like to know how often you visit my Blog. Here's the result of last month's poll.
A sincere warm thanks to all the contributors !

My Blog seems to about 10% of the people who participated not the right place....
Sometimes I can imagine. I posted, as a private joke, last month august_22 a video called Inge's striptease dream. At least one person came to my Blog by a Google search 'Blog striptease'. Google placed my Blog at third place out of over 4 million results... Lol, I can imagine that person expected something else than what he (best chance it's a 'he'...) will find on my blog.
I understand more and more how Google search 'works'... Of what I write about on my humble blog is mostly quite high on Google results....
The video, by the way, is watched over 500 times within a month...

The rest of the participants say to visit my blog quite frequently. That corresponds with my other trackers. The majority of you is very loyal and returns.
Still quite some people come to my Blog by a Google search or website referring and only read the post/page they were searching for. So sad because I think there must be more interesting stuff on my Blog for them.
And indeed I notice more and more new/old visitors explore my Blog in full. Wise decision !

In the comments are the (few) remarks to this poll.
If you have other suggestions that's also the place to be...

Again the complaint of more bloggers......
A simple comment to a posting (at least if you download a 'music file') is so much appreciated by me and by every Blogger !! Give us reasons to go on..... Don't be just a 'taker/leecher'. Participate in discussion/information !

And don't forget to participate in the new poll. It is just one simple click !

Cruisin' 1955 'Jumpin' George Oxford KSAN, SF

This is number seven (the last one was 2008_august_17...) in my/the small serie of Cruising records. You can get more info about this serie at the great Cruisin' blog.

It's 1955 in the CRUISIN' series and popular music is changing radically. The moon/June/spoon generation is giving way to a noisier, brasher rock 'n' roll tribe. The message in Billboard magazine this year is "Keep pop alive in '55" and adults are calling the new music a teen-age fad, but there is no stopping it. 1955 is, after all, the year of "The Blackboard Jungle" and the song from that film, Bill Haley's Rock Around the Clock.

The music was alive that year. Mitch Miller and his chorus may have been crashing through The Yellow Rose of Texas, while Bill Hayes crooned "The Balld of Davy Crockett," but the artists attracting teen-agers were singing about black denim trousers and motorcycle boots. Snooky Lanson, Russell Arms, Gizelle MacKenzie and Dorothy Collins began to experience difficulty interpreting R&B for "Your Hit Parade." And in Nashville, a former truck driver called Presley was named Outstanding New Country Artist of the Year and then signed a record contract with RCA.

1955 was a year of non-musical changes as well. The anti-communist paranoia created almost single-handedly by Sen. Joe McCarthy was waning. President Eisenhower ended U.S. occupation of Germany. The Supreme Court gave local authorities the task of integrating public schools. Fifteen-million workers came together as the A F of L and the CIO merged. School kids formed lines to try a new polio vaccine invented by Jonas Salk.

On the lighter side in '55, the Oscar for the best film song went to Love Is a Many Splendored Thing (the movie of the year was "Marty")...slumber parties were popular, and so were shoe taps and strapless prom dresses with lots of crinoline...Mary Martin was "Peter Pan"...and after winning six of the last seven World Series, the Yankees were beaten by the Brooklyn Dodgers.

More info about 1955 can be found in the text-file !

Cruisin' 1955 'Jumpin' George Oxford _KSAN, San Francisco.
'Jumpin' George Oxford resume.
One of the men helping shape the burgeoning rock revolution was "Jumpin'" George Oxford, a mild-mannered white Southern family man who when facing a radio microphone turned into a dapper, jive-taling rhythm and blues disc jockey, introducing records by black artists for a station beamed to the black market, KSAN in San Fransisco.

In 1955, Old "Jumpin'" was one of radio's pros, with 18 years of radio experience. He was heard on KSAN morning, afternoon and night, 43 hours a week. (Today most rock jocks work only a three-hour shift, six days a week.) This repeated exposure, coupled with a growing white R&B audience, made "Jumpin'" George Oxford one of the most effective radio personalities of the time.

His slogan for the year (you'll hear it here) - a variation on the futile plea in Billboard, "Be alive in '55!".

Opening Theme (Rock and Roll) - Buddy Morrow
Crazy Little Mama - Eldorados &"Jumpin'" George Rock and Roll Jubilee Teen Jive Talk
Sincerely - Moonglows
Maybelline - Chuck Berry & Melrose Record Shop commercial & Acme Home Remodelers commercial & Letter from Korea
Ain't It a Shame - Fats Domino & 30th & San Pedro Furniture Warehouse commercial
Story Untold - Nutmegs
Bo Diddley - Bo Diddley & Columbus Motors (1955 Dodge commercial) & "Jumpin'" George Bar-B-Q Pit jingle (from 1953)
Only You - Platters & Rogers Men's Store commercial
My Babe - Little Walter & "Oh Yeah" about I Got a Woman (Ray Charles)
Earth Angel - Penguins
Pledging My Love - Johnny Ace

This year 1955 is the oldest in the Cruisin' series. So far you can find on my Blog 1955-1961 and the 'special Cruisin'.... So check my Blog....
As usual, I wouldn't be surprised if you find download info in the comment....

Pim Maas (the Dutch Elvis) singles 1959_1962

Indorocker requested 'the Dutch Elvis' Pim Maas. And yep I have.

On 1959_may_28 the 14 year old Pim Maas participated in a Dutch Elvis Presley imitation contest at the Royal cinema in Amsterdam. Backed with the Presley Cats (in which his father Pim Maas sr played the saxophone) he performed Tutti Frutti & Baby, I Don't Care. Out of 339 candidates young Pim won and his price was a record contract. Second became Ria Valk.
Elvis Presley invited Pim Maas to Bad Neuheim in Germany where he was in the army at the time. Pim joined Elvis for two days. Later on he said 'it was a unique event which changed my life. I'll never forget those remarkable days'. The same year his first single All Right Baby/Kansas City is issued. He records until 1962.
In 1973 he leaves Holland to the States where he starts an antique shop. Three more singles are recorded. In 1991 Pim Maas returns to Holland. Pim Maas still performs in the oldies circuit.

Pim Maas (the Dutch Elvis) singles 1959_1962

01-All Right Baby
02-Kansas City
03-Soldier (Gi) In Amsterdam
04-Darling You Stole My Heart
05-The Way You Kiss Me All The Time
06-Can I Make A Date With You My Baby
07-La Paloma (No More)
08-Moonlight Swim
09-The Drifter
10-I'll Keep Searchin

If you don't mind the crackles of the vinyl you can go the comment and pick these unique recordings.
Dutch people especially, tell me if you remember Pim Maas and what you think of this piece of Dutch history.
I like that poster on the right. Krasnapolsky 1959_september_07.....

Popcorn & oldies Top20 _2008_09_20

According to the green counter my humble blog very heartly welcomes today it's 200.000 visitor.

I still don't know yet if I will go tonight to the Popcornparty at the La Locanda (Den Depot) party centre in Belgium, Steendorp.
Normally I can't drink alcohol 'cause I have to drive 100 miles back home. Will one of the 'free' ladies invite me ? Of course best should be one who has a driver's license and where I can sleep..

Anyway, today there will be a Popcornparty at my Blog. So, not too many words, just dance.
Milkshake Madamoiselle requested in a comment and in the shoutbox a Billy Storm song so she will have to dance for me at the end of this party...
So, too young lady for me, dance for me on Billy Storm - When You Dance

As usual it is from various sources. So don't expect full CD quality.

Somewhere tomorrow 200000 visitors

A 200.000 visitors/clicks since I installed this counter on 2006_june_19.
So there were even more, after all I started my Blog 2006_april_01.....
Since 2007 december, when I reached the 100.000, I reconsider the future of my humble Blog. I postponed the quitting/closing every month so far. At the moment the daily counter says way over 300. So many downloaders/leechers, but so little participation (except for a few persons).........

What do you think if I make my Blog accessable to just members ??

Veronica_Tineke de Nooij - Koffietijd

The second in my old offshore radio Veronica broadcasts is by Tineke de Nooij.
Tineke (the nickname 'Tinus' was used for her....) started working for Veronica on 1960_august_27 and stayed until the station closure 1974_august_31.
I remember the story she was afraid to tell Uncle 'Bull' Verwey she was pregnant 'cause she thought to be fired as a not married girl. How different things turned out. When she came to the studio the next morning Uncle 'Bull' and his wife had arranged all kinds of children stuff, even a little children's bed....
She married producer Tony Vos who can be heard in this hour with his song Ik voel me zo alleen (a cover of Brenda Lee's All alone am I). They got two children.

Enough reason to hurry up to the comments to get this 1964 studio recording...

Today Uncle Bull celebrates his 99th birthday

Today the 'lion of Loosdrecht' celebrates his 99th birthday.....
I can hear first visitors of my Blog ask themselves 'who may 'uncle Bull' be' ?
Well he was with his two brothers Verwey the 'founders' of Dutch commercial off-shore radio. European visitors will of course have heard of the name 'Radio Veronica'.
Only later on Radio Caroline, North Sea International, Lord Sutch, Mi Amigo and so on 'arrived'. But Veronica was the first !

The station initially announced itself as "VRON" (Vrije Radio Omroep Nederland = Free Radio Station Netherlands) but this was quickly changed to "Radio Veronica".

Uncle Bull led the company as a father, always worried for the well-being of "his boys and gals". He knew exactly how you should deal in a pleasant manner with intangible creative dj's like Rob Out (who died a few years ago), Joost den Draaier, Lex Harding, Jan van Veen, Tom Collins, Chiel Montagne, Will Luikinga, Tineke (Vos-)de Nooy, technician Adje Bouman and so many others.
He always loved party's and a little drink on it's time (as did the others...).
Could that be the secret of our Hendrik 'uncle Bull' Verwey ?
The above photo was taken 18 month's ago during the Radio Veronica reunion. Great applause when he entered the room : he's loved by everyone !
Auke Kok did write a book about our great pirate off shore radio station Veronica and presented the first copy to Uncle Bull. Check for yourself at 2.20 how funny he still is/was at the age of 97..... Of course I have a copy myself with a nice memo by Auke.
The eyes aren't what they used to be, nor is his general health. Yeah he needs to be taken care of ('nursed'). No wonder when you're 99.

The picture on the left shows you uncle Bull 1974_august_31 on the vessel Northerney whilst the last broadcast was prepared.
His 'looks' didn't change much in 34 years, dont you agree ?

My 2007 march post offers you the last Radio Veronica broadcast from 1974_august_31 (including the final speech by our uncle Bull).
I have Veronica's last week's broadcast complete (day and night). Today I offer you the two hours before that last hour. Lex Harding - Top 40 and Tom Collins - Tipparade. Check the comments.

Dear uncle Bull, I'll drink some 'Kettle one' (Dutch gin) to your health and up to the hundred !!!!

Two thousand one, nine eleven

I was at work. Also in the WTC they were at work. The radio news. A plane hit the WTC. My assistant was there a short while before. TV on. We saw the second plane hit the other tower. Unbelievable, it surely was an attaque. Beyond our imagination. Settle differences in opinion with talkings, never violance. Accept another person can view things in a different way. If 'your' truth is the only truth and you act like this you are indeed a terrorist.

In remembrance to those who lost their lives at the World Trade Centre.
But also to those who lost their lives elsewhere in the world to this
same kind of senseless not understandable behaviour/thinking.
Rest in peace.

Today 1932 Patsy Cline was born

Patsy Cline (born Virginia Patterson Hensley September 8, 1932 – March 5, 1963) was an American country music singer who enjoyed pop music crossover success during the era of the Nashville Sound in the early 1960s. Since her death at age 30 in a 1963 plane crash at the height of her career, she has been considered one of the most influential, successful, revered, and acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th century. The story of her life and career has been the subject of numerous books, movies, documentaries, articles and stage plays.

From Wikipedia :
Patsy Cline was best known for her rich tone and emotionally expressive voice, which, along with her role as a mover and shaker in the country music industry, has been cited and praised as an inspiration by many vocalists of various music genres.
Posthumously, millions of her albums have been sold over the past 45 years and she has been given numerous awards, which has given her an iconic status similar to that of music legends Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Only ten years after her death, she became the first female solo artist inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2001, she was voted by artists and members of the Country Music industry as #1 on CMT's television special of the 40 Greatest Women of Country Music of all time, and in 1999 she was voted #11 on VH1's special The 100 Greatest Women in Rock and Roll of all time by members and artists of the rock industry. According to her 1973 Country Music Hall of Fame plaque, "Her heritage of timeless recordings is testimony to her artistic capacity." Among those hits are Walkin' After Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, She's Got You, Crazy, and Sweet Dreams.

Patsy Cline's 12 Greatest Hits

01-Walkin' After Midnight
02-Sweet Dreams (Of You)
04-I Fall To Pieces
05-So Wrong
07-Back In Baby's Arms
08-She's Got You
09-Faded Love
10-Why Can't He Be You

Meet a Popcorn prophet tonight #2

Murphy's law.....
Earlier this week I lost my C partition. Got it back but replacing an older image failed and lost the partition. And so on and so on. But I think finally it's ok now.
My internet connection failed most of the time this week. Provider problem.
This morning one of my HD's said bye bye..... Immediately started formatting another external drive and am now making a new original of my backup....
Well, it keeps me away from the street.... and so I quickly present you

Meet a Popcorn prophet on saturday #1

Again a lot of visitors these days. Back from holidays or waiting for the Popcorn ?? To the last : they know what is to come. POPCORN on Laser radio next saturday !

For saturday's Popcorn playlist go to LASER radio or the Popcorn Prophet Laser_log_Popcorn page and take a look at the playlist.
Saturday at exactly 20hrs local_CET time (14hrs_ECT time) Theo Dumoulin says : Go Popcorn go ! You can attend live if you JOIN us ! This way you get the internet stream directly in your Winamp or Mediaplayer.
You can also go to the LASER stream page and their stream.

To get everyone a littlebit 'in the mood' here's as usual my (alternative) playlist.
As usual, this is not a normal LP/CD, just some songs gathered from various singles/albums and even old 18cm tapes. I 'follow' Theo's playlist tracks but just use other songs by the same artists. So there will be popcorn and non-popcorn here !

Popcorn & oldies Top20 _2008_09_02

It has been three weeks ago I have compiled a personal compilation album of Popcorn and other oldies.
On the northern hemisphere the holidays are over, everyone is at work again (except for the 'retired'... lol), children went to school to be educated and I hope to 'educate' you with some nice oldies. The result is here.
As usual it is from various sources. So don't expect full CD quality.
