HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (6.1.13)

29 May

HINT:

I’m throwing a musical party this Saturday night, but before you break out the hats and horns, better check out the menu: sour grapes, bitter aftertastes, and stew in your own juices.

Also I’ll be sitting in with Will Duchon on The Night Cafe this Friday night at 10:00 PM with another hour of jazz vocals.

Talk to you Friday and Saturday Nights!

PLAYLIST FOR “EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN” (5.25.13)

You know, of course, that “Everything old is new again” refers to the music and not to the host, right?  An hour of young musicians and singers swinging new life into old songs and old-fashioned instruments. Don’t try to thank me. Just doing my job.

22 May

HINT:

Old-timey songs plus violins, accordions, ukuleles, and even harps – – I know, it sounds like a nightmare New Jersey wedding, but no! This week Turntable For One is totally going “back to the FUTURE.”

Sorry guys. Change of plans. A repeat show from the archives this week.

I’ll be back in the studio live (or as close to live as I ever come) next week. 

HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (5.18.13)

8 May

Okay, let’s try this again, and this time I’ll go in and do the show.

HINT:

This week I might play “I’m In The Mood For Love,” but I won’t play “In The Mood.” I might play “I Think It’s Going To Rain Today,” but I won’t play “Stormy Weather.” I might play “I Talk To The Trees,” but I won’t play “Willow Weep For Me.”  

BONUS HINTS AS A REWARD FOR YOUR PATIENCE:

I might play “You Are Too Beautiful,” but I won’t play, “But Beautiful.” I might play “I Remember You,”  but I won’t play “Memories Of You.”

 

Have you guessed the theme yet? Tune in this Saturday night to find out if you’re right, or to keep me company, at the very least.
