PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO LAZINESS” (6.1.19)

1 Jun

I was feeling too lazy to come up with a theme for this week until I suddenly realized that I…well, I’m sure you’re way ahead of me now so I’ll stop there.  Below is the playlist of the laziest songs, laziest excuses, and laziest fantasies I could squeeze into two hours, though I’m sure you’ll agree that lazy is definitely not a word that applies to any of the singers and musicians.

PLAYLIST FOR “GONE FISHIN'” (6.28.16)

27 Jun

WMNR Fine Arts Radio was celebrating another Musical Theme Week, “Gone Fishin'”. So, of course, I jumped right in, since I’ve spent my life  fishing for the right words and angling for an original thought. Although I came up with just two songs actually about fishing, I found songs about fishing metaphors (see if you can guess which metaphor goes with which songs) and songs about taking off and going traveling in general.
