PLAYLIST FOR “LET’S TALK ABOUT ME” (12.8.18)

9 Dec

Last night’s show was all about me – no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Check out the song titles and you’ll see that the show was all about “me,” not me. Although since I chose all the songs and all the singers myself, wasn’t the show really all about me? If anyone isn’t utterly confused yet, write to me. I’m sure I can fix that.

PLAYLIST FOR “JAZZ JUKEBOX” (11.17.18)

19 Nov

Saturday afternoon, I sat in for Garrett Stack on his program American Jukebox, rock and pop hits of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.  So I thought I’d spend Saturday evening on my show playing jazz versions of pop tunes. I gave the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Dorothy Fields, etc. the night off.  They didn’t complain, probably for reasons of death.

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2018” (10.27.18)

28 Oct

Time for my annual Halloween party with haunting melodies sung by some of my favorite ghosts and others. Another Turntable For One tradition: trick or treaters coming to the door dressed in celebrity costumes and me handing out appropriate songs to them (since I’ve usually eaten all of the Halloween candy by then). This year, because of the truly scary and horrible events of Saturday and the past week(s), I started with a special Nina Simone song I’d play if the poor battered and beleaguered world came to my door. Nina recorded that song in 1968. Why is it still so heartbreakingly relevant today?

PLAYLIST FOR “THE TRUTH ABOUT MEN” (10.6.18)

7 Oct

Since we learned this week – much to my surprise – that it’s a scary time for men and that men are the true victims here, I had to do something to support all these poor unfortunate men, victims of an unfair society that never gives them any power nor respect. But what could I do being just a simple and largely ignored radio host? How about a testosterone-filled evening of man-splaining, man-rationalizing, and man-boasting songs, plus beer, of course, with an occasional view from a woman’s perspective?
