HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S MUSICAL THEME (12.2.17)

30 Nov

HINT: 

Every week the Turntable For One staff comes up with ideas for what is the absolutely best music to listen to in the privacy of your own home. Maybe it’s time for you to make some choices?

BONUS!!

This week I’ll be sitting in for Garrett Stack on American Jukebox, two hours of the greatest rock music of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. 4-6 PM (E.S.T.) this Saturday afternoon. I’ll have the door securely locked so this band can’t get it.

Be thankful that this isn’t one of the bands I’m thankful for when I present the Turntable For One 8th Annual Music To Be Thankful For show. I’ll share some of my favorites, plus about a dozen special guests will share music that helped them get through the past 12 months.

HINT:

I know. You’ve gathered the family. You’ve eaten. You’ve all taken baths. You’ve all taken your anxiety meds. You’re all ready for Turntable For One – and you’ll get Turntable For One…one wrinkle: I won’t be in the studio this week. Hope you enjoy an encore program from the archives. I’ll be back live next week.

PLAYLIST FOR “NAME-DROPPING” (11.4.17)

5 Nov

I spent the evening naming names – not in a Robert Mueller way, but by playing songs that have at least one reference to a real person.  Some name-drop many more than one person and others have spontaneous ad-lib shout-outs. The final song doesn’t really name-drop any person, but it was my way to say we’re thinking about you, NYC after the events of last week.
