October BlogCast ~ EyeTunes Covered

 

Welcome to our monthly musical get-together. Setting up this BlogCast’s theme won’t take much time. The four featured tunes… superb cover versions all… contain lyrics, which mention three of the six major colors of the human eye’s iris.

From the FYI Dept… since none of the composers saw any particular need to clutter their songs with dry statistics, I figured I’d clutter this post to briefly mention the results of my quick Google search… namely… that 55% of our human family members have Brown eyes, 8% Blue and 2% Green.

On a technical note… whenever YouTube commercials pop up, they do ruin my segues. Of course, you can just play them back “as is”… OR… if you’d prefer to don your DJ cap… the following brief tutorial could come in handy…

To ensure these segues are seamless, it’d be advisable to “audition” the 2nd, 3rd and 4th tracks in advance. That way you can either PLAY or SKIP any YouTube Ads that may appear from time to time. I mean, Madison Avenue jingles do jangle this BlogCasts’ aesthetics. However, once the Ads are out of the way, just click PAUSE and confirm the counters are “ZEROED OUT”. If your reflexes aren’t quick enough, the songs may start too soon. If so… re-cue the tracks by simply dragging that “RED DOT” backward to 00:00.

That duly noted… let’s give these EyeTunes a listen and a look-see…

I thank you for your listenership and cordially invite you to click back here for my next monthly BlogCast, which typically features anywhere from 3 to 5 songs that, when segued, transform everything into a variety of appealing themes. My next program is slated to hit the www during the first week of November 2018.

FYI, my past musical presentations are archived within my BlogCast and music categories.

Four-Play (Week #13) Thanks for listening!

 

Welcome to my Internet Blogcast. This week, my show’s four-tracked, musical theme reflects “The End” to my show’s planned 13-week run. While I’ve barely scratched the surface regarding ideas for future programming, past shows’ low ratings simply don’t warrant my continuing on a regular basis.

My special thanks go out to all of the recording artists who have so graciously allowed us YouTube access… permitted us to ear-witness their studio performances and eyewitness them, live, on stage. I want them to know that I am not a freeloader… a very high percentage of the music I’ve featured in my Blogcasts is material I’ve purchased in the vinyl and/or compact disc formats. In fact, some of their music, which I’ve heard online, has even inspired me to go out and purchase what I hadn’t previously included in my vast library.

I also thank the talented YouTube videographers and performers who’ve greatly enhanced all we’ve seen and heard, here.

On a personal note, I thank my sister who… oh so long ago… had encouraged me to have big ears / be musically adventurous.

Last but not least, I thank each and everyone who has listened to, liked, and commented on the twelve previous installments of Four-Play.

Turning now to the routine Blogcast housekeeping duties…

Even though this program comes to an end this week, for as long as WordPress remains on the www, my previous shows will remain neatly archived in my music category. Who knows… since it’s oft been said that “Nothing ever dies on the Internet”, what I’ve created, here, might even outlive both WordPress and me.

If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve heard, this day, click that “Like” Star. Of course, comments, as always, are welcome, too!

Thanks again for listening… I hope… in some small way… that my Blogcasts have made a difference in your lives. Take care!
