PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY! SIGH…” (10.10.20)

11 Oct

Saturday was World Mental Health Day. So, of course, I wanted to play two hours of positive, motivating, and encouraging songs. JUST KIDDING!! Doing that would have made me part of the solution, not part of the problem. That’s not the way I roll. In addition to some favorite songs about the questionable mental state of the world, I also played songs about several of the stressors indicating less than optimum mental health. Okay, yes, it was just another show about me.

PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO THE GRAMMYS” (2.6.16) #jazz #jazzsingers #jazzradio #grammys

7 Feb

I gave my salute to the Grammys this week with almost every song and CD either a Grammy nominee or a past Grammy winner…of course I couldn’t resist throwing in a few categories I think the Grammys have overlooked. I also nominated the cover below for album cover of the year and told the audience I’d be posting it. Beautiful CD and beautiful cover. Feel free to discuss.
