The RFW 2020 Holiday Companion


"I Love The Holidays"


 *This year's special focuses on the simple fact that Christmas is a holiday. To wish someone Happy Holiday is now frowned on by the PC Christian Sect because of it's generic intent. 
But that's why I love it! 

In this year of reevaluation and vaccination, I have decided it is most important to steal back the phrase and sentiment from the uptight types I don't want to hang with anyway.

Not wanting to add to the onslaught of traditional and overplayed classics (as wonderful as they are), I have decided on music not necessarily about Christmas, Jesus, Santa or even Je'Santa (pictured above).

No matter your musical taste, sexual orientation, gender, color, church of choice, nationality, political preference or total Humbug attitude, you are respected here in the Archives and encouraged to love your family and friends by 
staying safe at home!

 I wish you and yours a 
Happy Holiday!

"Past the stars in fields of ancient void
Through the shields of darkness where they find
Love upon a land a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home"

*When I think of my East Boston teenage friends, I think of our gang - a co-operative whole comprised of a cast of characters that I affectionately call The Usual Suspects in hundreds of stories I have recalled to you over the years - most of them true! 

I got the call this week that John "Bubba" DiGirolamo passed. I've lost my parents, family members and friends - so I've dealt with the shock of death, but this was different. 

It did not matter that I have not talked to most of them as much as I should - as I much as I could. They are still all a part of who I was and who I became - I love them all. 

If it were a Steven Kingish movie, we all would have shared the same dream or vision
and each would have had a task to accomplish.
In my case - I always get to bring the music.

The Sabbath is for you, Bubba.

"Now I know what it feels like to BE God!"

~WARNING~

It's a well-proven fact that only the bravest and most deserving Trick Or Treaters 
will even approach a house playing these un-godly sounds.

In honor of  All-Saints Day past, please reward those that cross your sonic line of no-return 
with a full-size bar of quality candy and not those little one-bite fun-size wannabe bars
(Snickers preferred).

That 18 year old Mary Shelly's 1818  novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is responsible for such indelible and iconic characters as Victor and his unholy creation is itself 
one of the great stories, as is the hilarious homage and cast of 
Mel Brooks' classic Young Frankenstein

"c'mon turn this thing around"

*I got to see VH in early 1978 on their first tour at a WBCN $1.04 night night at the Paradise Theatre, Boston. At that time all the band had released was the advance 12" of Running With The Devil - so we really didn't know what to expect. I was lucky enough to see VH many times afterwards with both Dave and Sammy. It's not that often that I get to really share with you one of my favorite concert moments, but tonight I can. On November 6, 1993, Sammy Hagar was a surprise guest at Neil & Peggy Young's Bridge School Benefit Concert at Bill Graham's Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. As you can see on the video below and the tunes in the Transmission, Sammy "conned" his talented bandmate to join him on guitar and piano for a short set for the kids on stage and
22,000 fans! 

We remember
Edward Van Halen
