PLAYLIST FOR “SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS 2015” (6.27.15) #jazz #jazzradio #doasisay

28 Jun

Even though I’ll be on a 7-week hiatus (while WMNR broadcasts live concerts from Tanglewood by the Boston Symphony Orchestra), I couldn’t go without leaving you my recommendations for great new music and great old music so that your can work on your ears while you work on your tan this summer. So, whether you’re lying on the beach, lying in bed, or lying on the campaign trail, here are a few parting suggestions for your summer listening pleasure.

I’ll be back in the Fall, but drop by here frequently because I’ll be talking about music I’m listening to while I’m on my vacation. I’d also love to hear what music you’re listening to, so leave a comment.

Just because I’m not doing live shows, doesn’t mean you have to suffer through summer without Turntable For One. Through the magic of the internet, you can listen to a Turntable For One podcast on PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, anywhere, anytime your want. Time is not the boss of you! Click the link below:
