HINT FOR SATURDAY NIGHT’S SHOW (11.5.11)

1 Nov

HINT:

Saturday’s live show will take a lesson and its theme from a boy who is more often than not a girl.

But before you assume the obvious, just how many transgender songs can you think of to fill an hour? Me, too. So that’s clearly not the answer.

More important, perhaps, is the fact that the above hint will only apply to this Saturday’s live show IF there is a live show. Last week’s snow storm knocked out most of WMNR’s Eastern Shore transmitters and its internet streaming. Oh, and more than half of the state of Connecticut, too. So it’s possible the station won’t be all the way back by Saturday; possible, too, that nearly no one will be listening.

How is that different from every other week?

Hope I beat you to that joke…

As long as you’re here, why not click on “Thanksgiving Show” (in the upper right-hand corner) and help me put together the November 26th, “Music To Be Thankful” show?

Talk to you this Saturday, I hope.

    I think the show will be about Rick Perry.
    Bill, I am very disappointed that you have not devoted this week’s show to the New American Hero, Steve Jobs.

      Hey, Will!
      Interesting guess, but after the week we’ve all had, I decided to come up with a new theme for this week, one that’s about as far from “sinister” or “political” as I could get.
      And though an unabashed Apple acolyte, my idea of a hero tends toward the voluble – Cyrano, Quixote, Twain – and also the silent – Buster Keaton, Harry Langdon.
      I hope you have a great Friday night.

        I was being sarcastic about Steve Jobs. Have you discovered that sarcasm is difficult to convey on the air?
        I applaud your true heroes, and would add Robert Schumann, Herman Hesse, and Nina Simone.
