David McClain's Choice for a Wednesday Matinee

I've been polling some of the men in our little enclave here of late for ideas for coed movie fun. David McClain's first choice was a very lucky one in that I found a free copy online worth watching.

His choice? Here's a peek:

Starring the dynamic and versatile…

I lived in a boarding house, The Chalet, in Berkeley, in 1961. There were 30 girls crammed into an old three story house with one bathroom!  I didn't have all that much in common with my roommates; one was a bible thumper and the other a girl from a small town who had been a big fish in a small pond, and was having trouble adjusting to a large pond.  I was a freshman, the term first year student, not having been invented yet.

And then I got lucky.  A very sophisticated sophomore from…

RIP Dave Brubeck

When my wife heard a snippet of Take Five on the news today, she knew. They don't play music on the news for nothing. (When I heard Imagine on the news the morning after I heard that John Lennon had been shot and wounded outside his apartment building, I knew for certain the worst was true.) She called me immediately.

I saw the man two or three times over the years. A…

Sleepless Nights, Early Mornings

As happens more and more often these days, I find myself rattleing around a dark and quiet house at three in the morning. Plagued by a brain that refuses to shut down coupled with various aches and pains from the day before, I surrender any thought of sleep and crawl out of my warm bed to shuffle off to the kitchen and put the coffee on to cook.

On mornings such as this what saves my spirit, what gives me a smile, is the simple act of listening to music. My entire life music has been…

New Santa Christmas Song

Here is an out line of my new song called "Santa's Gifts"

Like a very little dog with a very big bite in life........

Like an unhappy kid that does not get the toy they really wanted.....

In life someone only hide all of santa's gifts from you........

6 More Songs Asked To Be Pitched To Major Stars

Nov. 29 2012,  I just got an email from someone in Nashville that knows my music and they want to pitch 6 of my songs to 53 major country stars, pop stars , top 40 stars and more to see if anyone will record them and let me know who they are pitching them to. Wow some times God really surprizes me as he got me in the palm of his hand and leaves me speachless. I gotta step back and kinda take it in and talk to my music team as I'm kinda stunned right now to be honest. I also gotta get my wits…

Musical Questions


If we begin the music of love making
Will the language we share be harmonic?

Decides which beats are accented
Which beats are not?

Open Call: sexiest musician(s) of the last twenty years. Liz Phair~

Can't say that I remember just how I discovered Liz Phair, but after purchasing "White Chocolate Space Egg" by some random chance or twist of fate, she became one of my favorite artists. It was sometime after, that the crush began. At first it was the sparse "indie" sound"- her voice, her guitar. The lyrics though, are what really grabbed me, being interested in writing songs and, cough, other things...…

My Musical Love Letter to California

 I'm a lifelong resident of California. I love it. We have a diverse culture, a diverse landscape, and divergent thinkers. It's become popular of late to bash the state as we struggle with a failing economy, foreclosures, and a government that can't seem to get it together. But I love it here. I'm fortunate to live in an area of the state where if I drive 60-90 minutes in any direction I find myself at the sea, the mountains, the desert, or the state capital. So this is my musical love…

Post-Election Fun

 Hello all, coming down a little off the post-election high, I couldn't resist a little fun at Mitt Romneys' expense. I hope that Jerry Bock, Joseph Stein, Sheldon Harnick and Sholem Aleichem will all forgive me for having borrowed "If I were a Rich Man" from Fiddler on the Roof and twisted it up, a little.

       "Because I Am A Rich Man"(As sung by Mitt Romney)

In and Around the Lake With Jon Anderson

I love the complex, trippy songs that YES has produced since they first formed in 1968. The voice of the progressive rock band YES is Jon Anderson, not Benoit David, in my humble opinion. I was disheartened when I first heard of the life threatening acute respiratory failure incident that pulled Anderson out of the Chris Squire, Steve Howe, and Alan White lineup. But even more disheartened to hear that YES was continuing to tour without Jon even when he had…

The Way Out of Carnegie Hall (move & repost)

Back in the late sixties, I was a quiet, studious junior high school student who spent much of her free time practicing her piano and her violin. Okay, surely some of that statement is true. Some days, all of it is true. The day I was kicked out of Carnegie Hall by Leopold Stowkowski himself, none of it was true. I was too busy being a loud , giggly, smartass teenager.

I was born in Brooklyn and grew up in the Long Island suburbs of New York. The piano was my mother’s, bought for her…

Art Garfunkel: Sounds of Silence...For Now


Art Garfunkel as the Cheshire Cat and Paul Simon as the White Rabbit. It sounds like a strange dream. Or a Saturday Night Live skit. But acting together in the play Alice in Wonderland in elementary school was the first time the two musicians collaborated on a project. The duet went on to become part of American musical history racking up mega hits that are still popular today. Art will be 69 years old on November 5th. His…

Come Together Right Now for John Lennon's Birthday

Any student of American pop culture knows exactly where they were the night of December 8, 1980.

I had just finished working a catering job, tired and exhausted from the hours of cooking, serving, and cleaning up. I jumped in my car and turned on the radio happy to hear Beatles tunes playing for the trek home. One Beatles song after another played without commercial interruption as I cruised the darkened highway and happily sang along,…

Steve Miller -He Still Speaks of the Pompatus of Love




Shag haircut, halter top, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and the Steve Miller Band- a snapshot into my high school dance. Everyone was so turned on to his spacey sound as something new and exciting. And on October 5th Steve Miller will be 67 years old. He's still out there performing to adoring fans. While he has not produced new hits that reached the level of his work in the 70s and 80s, fans seem content to hear the songs of their…
