PLAYLIST FOR “HOLIDAYS I MISSED” (9.18.21)

20 Sep

Do you know how many holidays I missed during my show’s two-month summer hiatus? You probably don’t because you have real lives and don’t spend your week desperately trying to think of some kind of ironic new musical theme.  But this week I told the audience to forget their night caps and put on their party hats while I celebrated Holidays That I Missed. (By the way: all of these holidays are real.)

PLAYLIST FOR “LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN THE MAILBOX!” (5.25.19)

27 May

Instead of a theme, instead of featuring the oft-heard Turntable For One regulars – Sinatra, Tony, Carmen, Ella, Nina, etc. – I put Saturday’s show together with only some of the new music I received in the mail (both physical and virtual) in just the past two weeks. I generously didn’t go into the other things I find in my mail – things like memorial headstone catalogs and threatening letters from Social Security since they found out that I am neither social nor secure. Also: here’s a shout out to all of the singers and musicians listed below – young and old – and to their promoters; without them my audience and I would just have to stare at each other for two hours, and I think we know who would lose that staring contest.
