"Rockin' the Music World" with Robert Lloyd

Welcome to "Rockin' the Music World." This show is about all types of great music in the world and how it affects us, good or bad. When referring to music, subject matter will be about the beautiful compositions and the history of how they came about. The show will have biographies of the greats such as Beethoven, Pachelbel, Strauss, and Tchaikovsky, along with modern composers including the 'rockers' such as The Beatles (yes, including them too!) and the musicians of our era and how they stand up to review.

VERY IMPORTANT: Artists on the political right have been blackballed from this modern music industry. Our culture of beauty has been replaced with ugliness, coarseness, obscenity, and non-congruent noise, that has been packaged as 'music'... gradually destroying who we are. This show will start to reconstruct a community for our people to promote its natural and profound beauty. It will be a cultural home for 'our' artists, and for the connoisseurs of our musical heritage. We will encourage our musicians to submit their compositions for selection that we will share with our listeners.

With the above in mind, our show will also tackle problems in the music business such as WHO owns the record labels and who controls the purse strings. We will also delve into subjects such as the Christian contemporary music scene (nothing is too controversial for this show) and discuss the upheaval it has caused in the Christian community. You'll get the facts and nothing but the facts. And you will certainly get the opinion of your host, Robert Lloyd... good or bad.

Who is Robert Lloyd?

Robert is a lifelong composer, lyricist, musician, singer, and producer. He is a former professional musician who left the music scene in disgust while cursing God for giving him the talent, but not allowing him to be more of a commercial success. Interestingly (or stupidly), during this time of 'blaming God' he claimed to be an atheist. Go figure. Robert has written 1000's of songs and loves doing it. He even enjoys CO-writing with other lyricists at times (maybe to keep him out of trouble?). He writes rock-n-roll, country, Christian, Christian contemporary, classical, commercials and jingles, and politically motivated songs that can be totally outrageous. Anything with a melody, and he's in. Oh yeah, he writes plays and musicals also. His mother thinks he's great! Is there anything this guy can't do?

He grew up in the mid-west but has lived in Florida for so long now, that he almost considers himself a cracker. He is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and a past Vice-Chairman of the Florida League of the South. The League is an organization devoted to the rebirth of Dixie and renewal of the culture that once made us great. They are NOT fence-sitters or compromisers of true history of the South and of the world in general. Robert loves the League!

Robert is a Baptist and is considered at times a hardline Christian fundamentalist. Robert is married to the love of his life, and both are of German and Scottish/English ancestry. He has a grown daughter from a previous marriage, and she is of mixed race, her mother being Korean-American. He has explained to his daughter (who he raised as a single dad) that had he known 25 years ago what he knows now, she would be 100% White or 100% Korean. She also knows that no father alive loves his daughter more than her daddy loves her.

'Heart' (Ooooh, Barracuda)

The Rock group 'Heart' is this weeks story on Rockin' the Music World with Robert Lloyd. Never in the history of rock-n-roll has there been such a talented woman with the voice and writing ability of Ann Wilson. Put her with the dynamic lead guitarist Roger Fisher and they had the making of a super group like none other. Discussions include:

(1) The early forming of a band without any 'girls' or any thought that it might be a good idea.
(2) In walks Ann Wilson, and her voice is so piercing and yet at times so sweet.
(3) Romance starts between the members in the group. The Fishers and the Wilsons create the force that push the band forward.
(4) Romantic ties then start falling apart and thus the band weakens and almost breaks up.
(5) Without the talent of Roger Fisher, the band moves towards a simpler pop sound. It sells even more Albums, but critics say they may have lost their edge.

Sheryl Crow - 'Beautifully White But Just a Mislead Pinky' 

This week on Rockin' the Music World with Robert Lloyd, Robert will be discussing the very beautiful and talented Sheryl Crow. This singer-songwriter from Missouri was a high-school athlete, straight A student, and a generally 'Little Miss Perfect!' Then her voice was used for some McDonald's commercials, and the rest was history? Well, it's not that simple, and she ain't so perfect. Robert will discuss:

(1) She went on tour with Michael Jackson and sang as a backup singer.
(2) She hung out on Tuesday night's with a group of fellow musicians and she and the guys made an album called "The Tuesday Night Music Club"..
(3) After a while some radio stations started to play a song off the album and then the Rolling Stones invited her to open one of their concerts.
(4) Yes, she WAS engaged to Lance Armstrong.
(5) Yes, she DATES date around... and NO, she's not married, but wants to be?

The music is great for this show and her politics and opinions are contradictory as all liberals are. But it is a fun show. Enjoy it.

Led Zeppelin - 'Certainly No Band of Angels'

This week Robert Lloyd talks about one of the bad boy bands 'Led Zeppelin' and their colorful members that have gone down in music history. This is a special 90 minute edition as the band's story was just too big for one hour. Very few groups, if any, can match the charisma, flash, and downright talent that these White boys brought to the music scene. With great songwriting, the finest musicianship, and a lead vocalist that possessed such a powerful voice, there was no stopping these guys.

The band set precedents in managing their business and took much of the power away from the record labels and into their own hands. It also helped that their manager was a former professional wrestler that stood 6 foot 5 and weighed over 300 lbs and had a temper to insure that he would get his way.

The band started small, but was quick to move up the ladder in England and then the world. Join Robert today and hear some of the best rock and roll ever recorded intertwined with some of the greatest stories in music history..

James Bond (the music of 007)
With your host, Robert Lloyd

This is one of the 'fun' shows this week (well, aren't they all?). This is on the fabulous music of the James Bond series, and focusing on the life and times of the ultimate Bond, James Bond... himself, Sean Connery. From the creator Ian Fleming's imagination and his observations of real life spies of the Second World War, and then to finding the 'right chap' to play the part, this is just an exciting time in movies.

We will review the rough and tumble life of Sean Connery, the Scottish secessionist, Member of the British Empire award winner, and 'accused' wife beater (more on that in the show). We will also cover the controversy on who actually wrote the theme music for the series and who produced which songs... yes, there are arguments on everything. So whether you are a White Nationalist, or just a movie or music fan, this is your show.

PROTEST.jpg

March 2, 2013

'Protest Music' - Not some silly little love songs!

Episode Notes: This week Robert talks of music close to the heart of all true fighters for political freedom. Many people can only think of the 1960s with the liberals leading the way in singing of protest, but the last 20 years has shown a reversal with the conservative artists way out front with singing the truth. This show is dynamite (pardon the expression) and talks about:

(1) Age old protesters including Beethoven and Wagner!
(2) A liberal woman preaching death and destruction during the War Between the Sates.
(3) The struggle in Northern Ireland and arresting of those daring to sing out in song.
(4) How did Paul McCartney get involved in writing protest songs after being accused of only having 'silly little love songs'???
(5) Who is the rock group 'Pokerface' and what's all the ruckus over their music?

Also, Robert himself gives several of his own protest songs for review. Join us in talking about this growing genre of music that actually 'says' something!

4) Developing her talent and singing anywhere anyone would have her.
5) A future husband having gotten her phone number and calling her from across the ocean and falling in love before they ever met face to face.

Robert Lloyd- 2-Hour Special / Jimm Webb & John Prine
Robert has the biggest TWO hour special today in the history of his show! He has two of the most respected songwriters in America portrayed in all their glory... first up is the fabulous Jimmy Webb that has given us some of the biggest selling songs of all time, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Wichita Lineman, Galveston, MacArthur Park, and many many more. This quiet man is the song of a preacher that broke into the music scene working initially for the Black owned Motown Records in Detroit.

Chicagoan John Prine is known as the singing mailman as he refused to quit his government job, a least for a while, even after gaining success with his hit songs. His songs are introspective, including the hit, Hello in There, being from the perspective of a seemingly forgotten older couple in their retirement years.
