PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNREALITY – REALLY!” (5.14.22)

15 May

Impossible! It just can’t be! Have you lost touch with reality? I know. It sounds like my last IRS audit. Or maybe Wolf Blitzer’s performance review. Nope. These are things people have been saying about Turntable For One for years. And this week, they were right. I paid tribute to all the things and ways people embrace, admire, and seek Unreality. Is the last song Reality or Unreality? I think that’s going to depend very much on what we all do in the near future.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (8.22.20)

23 Aug

This is a show from last March. At that time Joe Biden was an ascendent candidate and the man of the moment. Ditto for this past week, so I played the show again. If you don’t think that Biden is the man of the moment, feel free to tell yourself that the show is dedicated to Joe DiMaggio, or Jo March, or Joseph K or just a cup of joe. To give an appearance of fairness back then, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too. I kept those in. Back with a new show next week.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” (3.07.20)

8 Mar

I planned this show months and months ago, just a show featuring some of my favorite songs, singers, and musicians all named Joe. At the time I thought Joe Biden was toast, not someone voters months later would be toasting. Okay, times are different now, but no way I’m throwing away a good idea – especially since they are coming with less and less frequency. To give an appearance of fairness, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too.
