If, instead, you’d like an hour of swinging, haunting Halloween songs, I’ll bet you’re mad at yourself for missing tonight’s show. Don’t let it happen again. I’m just thinking about you.

PLAYLIST FOR “ACCORDION WEEK” (10.24.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers #accordions

24 Oct

The accordion and Turntable For One. Some called that a perfect marriage, some called it synergy at its most organic, some just called it a night. There have been many swinging jazz accordionists in the past; and in the present, the instrument is finding its way into the background and the foreground with some great singers and musicians. Below is a partial list and all I had time to play this week.

PLAYLIST FOR “SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN” (10.17.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

17 Oct

What’s the difference between a Dream and a Plan? Well, I’ve been having a lot of bad dreams lately, a lot of bad plans, too. Dreams aren’t real and they don’t come true…of course, most of my plans don’t come true, either. You know, maybe there’s no difference at all. Both of them end in disappointment and heartache – but not when singers like the ones I played are singing about plans they’re making!

HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (10.17.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

14 Oct

HINT:  

I’m not saying, don’t watch your college football game on Saturday night. I’m saying, watch the game with the sound off and with Turntable For One on. I think you’ll be surprised at how accurately the show underscores the action on the field. Sound like a plan? Great, because I can think of  lots more plans to suggest…

Happy to be back after an exciting two weeks at Pundit Training Camp, where I learned the valuable lessons all pundits and news commentators know, such as:  its not what you have to say, but how long it takes you to say it that matters. I could have talked on and on and on and on about this, but I filled up most of the hour with some great songs about talking.
