HINT:

How much time do you spend every day routinely  analyzing, evaluating, diagnosing, and categorizing your closest friends, family, and acquaintances? Aren’t you embarrassed? Well, you should be if you’re doing this in a totally casual and unscientific way. But wait.  I have good news: This week the jazz vocals on Turntable For One will give you all the tools you’ll need to call your friends, family, and acquaintances the names they truly and properly deserve.

PLAYLIST FOR “OUT-SOURCING” (6.9.12)

10 Jun

These are perilous times, especially for anyone who hates cliches. However, to show my true patriotic stripes, tonight on Turntable For One in a demonstration of economic  austerity, I out-sourced all of the vocalists — to Canada. Not one of these vocalists was born in the U.S. of A., although many of them do have certain facial resemblances to actual Americans. Stay vigilant.

HINT:

In keeping with Turntable For One’s persistent mission to speak TRUTH to POWER, even though we usually just get its voicemail, this week’s show will be wholly, entirely, completely and unabashedly UN-AMERICAN. The reality checks (and the subpoenas) are in the mail!
