greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 8, 2017

Another heavy period on the computer this with getting a Playlist for Picture Memories of Yorkville together. Just finished this project earlier this evening and posted a link to several groups on Facebook. It’s basically 29 videos covering hundreds of pictures collected over the years on assorted websites.

So, with that project finished, on to another for next week, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

A Few Funnies From The Net

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – November 10, 2017

First off, today, November 10, 2017, is the U.S. Marine  Corps birthday, the 242nd Birthday since its founding in 1775. Oorah!

Now, getting back to the Friday Roundup.

The first thing that I’m concentrating on is doing a little editing on my KA Favorite Tunes, or, as I know them as Kick-Ass Favorite Tunes. Right now, we’re at 100+ but I know for sure that this list will grow if I get support (Subscribers).

Just added a few funnies from my email from Jim.

That covers this week’s updates to Marty’s Blogs. I’ll be adding tunes to the Oldies (Doo Wop) Music over time as I go through my music collection and look for the same tunes on YouTube.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Moonglows

Moonlows

Here is another group from the 1950’s and that great music that came from that era. One of the groups that made a direct impression with their style of music is that of the Moonglows. Two leads from that group were Bobby Lester and Harvey Fuqua.

All these tunes from the Moonglows were found on You Tube with the ecxception of a few. I’ll go through a few of the tunes that were part of my favorites of all times and give them to you below.

Here is the link to the Moonglows and the 72 tunes that I found on You Tube. A few may be duplicates but most are later versions and Live sessions. Enjoy.

Most Of All

In My Diary

Please Send Me Someone To Love

I Knew From The Start

Sincerely

Over And Over Again

When I’m With You

Secret Love

See Saw

The Beating Of My Heart

Whistle My Love

That covers a few of the great tunes by the Moonglows. I may have missed a few of their great tunes but ave linked more that 60 tunes that are currently on You Tube. There are about ten plus which I came across a long time ago but are not part of the inventory on You Tube..

Enjoy,

greendougherty.Blog – Yorkville – 89th Street in Pictures

Featured

park lane 90th street

Since I started the greendougherty.Blog, it was inevitable that I would start a Yorkville spin every once in a while. It’s that time and we’ll start with the Streets of Yorkville. In this case, I chose 89th Street because it left a special niche in my heart for those moments from the past.

I added a picture of the Park Lane Movie House on 90th Street because my little story relates to looking at the other side of the Park Lane Movie House that is on 89th Street on the corner of 1st Avenue, on the north side of the street. Across from the Park Lane is a build that had an alcove of sorts that one could sit in. It was on the street side and I guess that was why the window was shut off and bricked off but enough for one to sit in.

It was in this alcove that I was able to meet one of the lovelies of 89th Street. I remember  a story that I heard about a machine gun that was place on the roof of this movie house and was discussing this fact with the lass. I always wondered if it was folklore or what.

For now, a few pictures of 89th Street. Did you live on 89th Street? Share some memories.

I have this building as an old building on 89th Street and York Avenue and found the address but have since misplaced it. There is a steeple of sorts in the background. So, if that rings a bells with anyone, please let me know if you can shed some light on this building and its location.

Now we’ll see if any of the addresses are wrong from anyone real familiar with the neighborhood.

That’s it for now.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Crests

Featured

Crests

Another group that falls into one of my favorite groups is that of the Crests, or, Johnny Maestro and the Crests. The lead singer of the Crests, Johnny Maestro, recently passed away and was overlooked by the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, unfortunately.

Fortunately, for the rest of us, we have all the recordings, and a few that I’m still looking for to share with everyone. My first memory of a tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of “My Juanita”. It was in the candy store on First Avenue on 91st Street and it would always be playing on the jukebox. Enjoy.

My Juanita by Johnny Maestro and the Crests

Another very popular tune form the Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of Sixteen Candles, that was the age of most of the people that loved Johnny Maestro and the Crests.

And the tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests that had you dancing with your Sweetest One at the moment was “Sweetest One”. Enjoy.

Also, there are a few other tunes that were sung by Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge. Here is one of those tunes.
