HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (6.2.12)

30 May

HINT:

This week Turntable For One will be dedicated to a national pastime – one that has nothing to do with bats, balls and designated hitters. 

 

Think about it. That’s either the totally easiest, most obvious hint I’ve ever given you or the most impossibly hopelessly unsolvable one. Thoughts?

 

Turntable For One   Saturday Night   10:00 PM   Live radio on WMNR Fine Arts Radio and wmnr.org

HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (5.26.12)

23 May

HINT:

What’s Pi a la mode? Have you ever had a close shave using Ockham’s razor? If you aren’t part of the problem nor part of the solution, what are you?

This week on Turntable For One, more questions than answers. How is that different from every other week? Trust me; it is.

PLAYIST FOR “TRIBUTE TO THE PREPOSITION” (5.19.21)

21 May

I’ve been on vacation, so last Saturday’s show was from what I call the archive and some of you call the crypt.  Thanks a lot.  

Here’s a link to the playlist when the show aired live in February.

I’m back and this Saturday’s show will be new. Drop back on Wednesday for a hint about the theme. Special imaginary prize for the first ten people who do. 

HINT FOR THIS WEEK

16 May

I’m on vacation this week and so the show will be something from the archives. Your guess is as good as mine. Talk to you next week!

HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (5.12.12)

9 May

Due to a sports-related injury — while  jogging my memory and leaping to a conclusion, I strained my credulity — I’m going to have to sit this one out.

The good news is Will Duchon, host of Friday Evening Classics and The Night Cafe, will be sitting this one in for me.  

Want a hint about Will’s musical theme for the night?

HINT:

What do people always talk about and yet never do anything about?

An evening of music about Campaign Finance Reform? Not even close!  Deporting the Kardashians? Unfortunately, no. 

Find out this Saturday night at 10:00    Turntable For One with guest-host, Will Duchon     Live radio on WMNR, Fine Arts Radio, and wmnr.org
