PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO OSCAR LOSERS” (2.23.13)

24 Feb

I was going to do a show of Oscar Winning Songs, but was afraid I’d have to play Rod Stewart’s cover of “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp.” So instead: each of these songs (except the last one) was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song in a Motion Picture; but every one of them lost.

SNOW JOKE REDUX

8 Feb

Did you like this week’s hint? Great! How’d you like another week to guess what the hint means? Double Great! I’ve got to put off that show for a week.We can all thank Winter Storm Nemo for this. I may never watch Finding Nemo ever again after this. And I may have to stop using the word mnemonic, too, although, in truth, I don’t often use that word anyway.

This Saturday tune in for a classic show from the Turntable For One archives.
