PLAYLIST FOR “NOSTALGIA NIGHT” (11.18.17)

18 Nov

I thought about the good old days this week, when I was smart and my phone was dumb, when a blue state was me having a bad day, and when Harvey was a six-foot invisible rabbit you really wanted to see and not a creep you never want to see again. We can’t live in the past, but I don’t mind an occasional visit.

PLAYLIST FOR “SO LONELY I COULD CRY” (1.9.16)

10 Jan

As Turntable For One moves into its new time-slot (now 9:00-11:00 PM) I wanted to do a show about being all alone in the radio station since my friend, Dan Lenore, has retired his show which preceded mine.  I thought that paying tribute to him would be easier than paying back the money I owe him. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
