WORTHY of another WELCOME

Don't let the lack of posts get you down...we're all still here, reading, watching, and (most important) listening (to really good music).  The letters A-Z (and numbers 0-9) will again appear all over these pages, arranged into words, phrases, praises, and joys.  There'll be links to pictures, videos, AND SONGS - oh my!([rolleyes])  Of course, you might as well join the fun and kick-start us in the arse. 

If not, and until then, another read of the welcomes from our two wise men (sometimes cracks) is appropriate:

How you say?  Post...in any thread.  Wherever it suits you suits us.  Still not sure?  A good place to start if you want to get your feet wet is to participate in the weekly Battle of the Bands.  Every 7 days we pit 4 songs against one another and we all vote for them...Gold, Silver, Bronze or... ... ...tin.  At the end of the 7 days the votes are officially tallied by 'battle' moderator Darren J. Ray and then the songs...based on their specific results might advance to the end of season 'playoffs'.

Do join in...and WELCOME. [cool]

This used to be called the Blueboard as the original site was mainly blue and yellow.  But here we are talking Brian and Beach Boys and yes, Lee, may be the unofficial mod and long-time poster here.  His background in everything pop music-related is deep from his career onward (or backward).  Longtime fan of the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson.

The Battle of Bands is a weekly, ongoing contest which is very well moderated.  A nice place to go to be part of something.  And it's easy to take part.  

I have met a number of people who post or have posted and we all have our common ground - love and respect for the music of one Brian D. Wilson.

Bugs did a nice job of support above as well.  These guys are fun to read.  

If you need any other help getting started, begin here:

And:

Or

Kind of melts anyone who is a fan of ANY music ^.  What ovations are meant for.

Come on in [smile]

I'd like to welcome me back.  From an aged old codger and veteran to a freshly scrubbed newbie...I am about on a limited basis to enjoy chats about the music we love and the people who make it... ... ...especially the creative guy.

Well welcome back Mr. Marshall. We've been waiting - patiently.

There's a battle going round at Battle of the Bands by yours truly.

Awesome to see you here, Lee.

so the old jerry-built cat's whisker comms apparatus
cranks back into operation
and we're once more regaled with his leeness's entrancing utterances
('...some of Lee's 1,950+ posts...' as bugs put it)
- he's been carbon dated to sources far earlier than that date.
his carbonated belches are mightier than gargantua's,
yet his backwoods' carbon footprint is tinier than a gnat's fart
even as his illusory presence exceeds the reputation of bigfoot...

a mighty hunk of a (so far virtual, if not virtuous) chum(p).
welcome back, squire

Yeah, we've had it all to ourselves!


Welcome back.

I won't have the time it takes to participate in any 'battles' Al.  One step at a time.  Still lot's of work to be done at 103.1.  

You can all come in and become friends of The Train.  The more the merrier.  EVEN YOU BRIAN WILSON. [cool]  We have lots of musical friends...but there's surely room for one more.  We play quite a number of your songs plus some featuring your brothers and also those 2 former band-mates you've toured with these last few years.

I wasn't really 'gone' so much as just on 'leave'.

Time is what we make of it.  I ALWAYS appreciated Lee's "in the biz" comments at the battle.  

Was Lee in "Jurassic Park" promoting his station?

Steph Cur-ee?  

Like the one-step philosophy though.  Feet firmly planted ^^^^^

The one thing for sure, is that as a listener, you tune in to Lee's radio show, he knows what he's talking about.

By contrast, did anyone see the new AXS-TV '1966' yesterday?  This bald man made so many mistakes I fear they had no fact checker.  Some of them: 'Pet Sounds' featured 13 sentimental songs (uh...even Sloop John B and Wasn't Made for these Times?  Even the 2 instrumentals, including the upbeat one?).  'God Only Knows' was all about marijuana.  Not including 'Good Vibes' on the album was due to a space concern: no room. 

The Supremes were the first female group to have a rock n roll #1 song.   (sorry, the Shirelles, Crystals, Mavelettes, Shangrilas, and Angels---and there's probably more). 

this is the first time, I've ever heard Elvis' 'Paradise Hawaiian Style' described as one of 'good' movies...

The Sound of Music is credited to 1966, rather than to 1965, as is 'folk music'.  Bob Dylan's "I Want You" is called "indecipherable."  No one had ever been as productive as Bob Dylan--it was unprecedented when he released three albums within two years: 1965-1966.   (??).

The most important aspect of 1966, is that the Yardbirds had a guitar player, who would later be in our favorite music, Led Zeppelen, which paved the way for the Red Rocker Sammy Hagar. 

Lee: if you run into this bald man from AXS-TV, we're counting on you to beat him up...

John B., It's the new way with social media - everyone is an expert.  Our President had some things VERY wrong in his 4th of July speech.  

Surely Lee won't beat up the dee-jay, but he can sure school-him.

not sure if it's as much thinking yourself an expert as it is not caring enough to get it right. 

okay, not beat him up, maybe just drive his motorcycle over the guy's foot!
