PLAYLIST FOR “SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” (6.26.21)

27 Jun

It’s a Turntable for One tradition that on the next to the last show for the season I hand out Summer listening assignments just as it’s a Turntable For One tradition that the audience ignores me. Not exactly symbiotic, is it?

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE ADVERB” (4.10.21)

11 Apr

Intelligently, flawlessly, compassionately, thrillingly, unbelievably – these are just a few of the words no one has ever used in describing how I put this show together. Why? Well, I’m going to tell myself that it’s because people just don’t know how to use adverbs. So clearly it’s time for another lesson in Making Grammar Great Again. That’s why I presented proudly, defiantly, fearlessly, and oh so timely, a musical tribute to Adverbs this week.

PLAYLIST FOR “GIVE & TAKE WEEK” (10.12.19)

13 Oct

The two words, give and take, are frequently associated with my show, although usually in the form of “Give me a break!” and “I’m going to take a nap.” But this week all of the songs had either the words or the concepts of giving and taking. Plus it was the audience’s turn to get involved because it was Fall Fundraising week at WMNR, Fine Arts Radio (wmnr.org); so with phone and on-line pledges people put their money where my mouth is, supporting the show and this wonderful anomaly of a radio station. Thanks!

PLAYLIST FOR “SOMETHING GOOD MIGHT HAPPEN” (6.8.19)

9 Jun

I’m have always been a “the-glass-is-half-empty” kind of guy. (I also worry who’s been drinking from that glass.) Why? Growing up, my family had a clear and distinct world view: “Something bad might happen.” So this week I challenged – no, I dared myself to look through the eyes of people who actually (and inexplicably) see the world positively. I played song after song about things possibly going right and how to make that happen. Happily I got through it but only by repeating my daily, personal affirmation: “What on earth were you thinking?”
