Sleeping Outside by Kathy Geary with Twisted G String
January 20, 2020 at the Colony in Woodstock Open Mic. Kathy Geary and Twisted G String perform "Sleeping Outside" - I met these two accomplished musicians and ten minutes later we played my song, all they knew was it was in 6/8 and my low string was tuned to D. This is the kind of experience that only happens when all the planets are in alignment!
Now and Then AT HOME - Dave Mason, Steve Winwood, John Prine, David Crosby, Carole King, Biff Rose
Original air date April 14, 2020 | Time 58:00
I'm finding my way to reach out from my home to you! Since I've been here for several days in a row, the concept of HOME changes over time. It seems bigger, full of more things than I realized, everything I might need to have a satisfying day, a full life, is right here in my own backyard.
Come with me into these songs and find something for yourself.
A Reason to Smile - Simon and Garfunkel, Biff Rose, Dan Hicks, Frank Zappa, Van Dyke Parks, Brian Wilson
Original air date Feb 3, 2018 | Time 59:00
Music is so powerful. It can lift you up if you look for a reason to smile. If you go looking for a reason to smile you're going to find one.
Paul Simon's song "Punky's Dilemma" from Bookends by Simon and Garfunkle 1989. Biff Rose's second album The Children of Light 1969 is brillant. He wanted to be a stand-up comic in Los Angeles but ends up performing as a singer songwriter, appearing on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show over 12 times.
