It's no use yelling "Someone call me a doctor!" because, in this particular time in our country, all I'd get would be a chorus of "O.K.! You're a doctor!" Very funny.

See what happens when you attend a Roman Catholic school (or two, if you're really into it)? When the mind is allowed to stray, it wanders into strange territory. When this happens, the best I can do is write down all the ideas that come to me, listen to the music, musicians and singers that go with them, and divide them up into listenable groups. Here, hopefully, is one of them, and as I look down the titles, I feel that "Something Completely Spiritual" might just work.  

Care for a few frinstansez?

Last night I had the strangest dream/I never dreamed before/I dreamed the world had all agreed/to lie down quietly next Tuesday evening at 7PM, close your collective eyes, and let the dreams flow, as Something Completely Different wanders into the World of Dreams and finds a wonderful bunch of songs brought back into the World of Consciousness from the Land of Sleep.

Maybe I'll consider putting together a Senior Citizens are Completely Different hour. No, no, not all those old songs that you and/or your father and/or his father used to sing whilst gathered around the Victrola. What do you mean, What's a Victrola?  

Yes...I know...I know I promised...but...what I mean is...wait a minute...I'm...I'm...I'm KEEPING MY PROMISE! Yes, no more three group Somethings...after this one.  

And, unlike most of the Something shows, this one is almost exclusively Twenty-First Century! And they are as follows, and in this order:  

GREAT AMERICAN TAXI. You'll thrill to hear deathless tunes like Fuzzy Little Hippy Girl, Maud Only Knows and Radiation Blues.  

When: August 8 - September 8th 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Once Roland (that's meeeee!) gets an idea in his head, it can be very difficult to change to a different idea - - at least, that's what my mother used to tell me. So...in the last couple of weeks, I've become addicted to Something Completely Different shows that feature three musical groups or individuals that somehow fit together - - and, yes, the operant word is "somehow".  

When: Tuesday, August 1st - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  

Where: KRCB-FM (91.1, 90.9, on line @ KRCB.org, Comcast 961,  w/app @iTunes store & Google Play)   

As many of you know, I love to pick three musicians or groups that I feel complement each other in some fashion, build a show around them, in which I repeat the trio ten times for a total of thirty songs (or thereabouts). So...it's happening again, friends, this coming Tuesday.  

When:  Tuesday, July 11th - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  
Where:  KRCB-FM (91.1, 90.9; Comcast 961; on line @ KRCB.org; w/app @ iTunes store or Google Play)  

I certainly hope you enjoyed last Tuesday's Something Completely Different, "The Glorious Fourth", as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. In honor of that July 4th extravaganza, we're presenting three more American idols on Tuesday, July 11th.  

Over and over again, I've had to keep presenting Fake Time on these Something Completely Different promos. "Next Tuesday it's the Fourth of July...actually, it's the Second of July. Next Thursday is the Fourth of July, but what that really means..." and stuff like that. Well, every once in a while the stars line up just right, and this Tuesday is REALLY the Fourth of July...every once in a while...like...RIGHT NOW!  

So...not exactly right now...but Tuesday, for sure. And what you'll be experiencing is...  

When: Tuesday, June 27th - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  
Where: KRCB-FM (91.1, 90.9, online @ KRCB.org, w/app @iTunes, App Store, Google Play, and Comcast channel 961 in the Bay Area)  

When: Tuesday, June 20th - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The last time I looked, neither Donald Trump nor Jeff Sessions have managed to cancel Summer - - what a relief! On June 20th (actually the day before Summer begins, but so close as to make no difference), Something Completely Different will celebrate the change of season with many warm songs which anyone can record and take to the beach (not mandatory).  

About Something Completely Different this week - host Roland Jacopetti writes:  

"I hope all of you enjoyed last Tuesday's Something Completely Different as much as I did. I was so taken with the music that I forgot to introduce you to a statement from the late Townes Van Zandt, in the notes of his posthumous album A Far Cry From Dead.  

 

As promised, I hereby announce that Tuesday's Something Completely Different show will feature FOUR different musicians (no, not three). Yes, they have definite ties, each to the other and vice versa. Explain? Mais Certainment!  

"Something Completely Diva-esque"
