PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2019 – SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” (6.29.19)

30 Jun

Turntable For One is on hiatus until August 31st. So, as I always do on the final program, I gave out summer listening assignments for July and August. Plus, as I also always do, I talked about the ice cream treats I’ll be serving on my summer job on a wandering ice cream truck.

On the menu this year: 20 different ice creams in one bowl. Last year I called it the Kitchen Sink sundae; this year: the Democratic debate sundae.

Last year I sold the classic orange sherbet treat, the skyrocket. This year I’m testing something new and explosive: Little Skyrocket Man.

How about a Polar Icecap sundae? (Which is really just a glass of warm water.)

New this year: the Bill Barr Milkshake – you can order it but it will never show up.

I’m trying out a new combination of mint and peach ice creams – I’m hoping peach-mint really catches on this summer.

Don’t forget about The Infrastructure Sundae – a combination of Rocky Road ice cream and crumbled bridge mix.

A green reminder: When you’re done with your ice cream, pass your spoon on to the next customer. (Hey – either you believe in recycling or you don’t!)

PLAYLIST FOR “TWO SHOWS FROM THE ARCHIVE” (2.27.16) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

27 Feb

I played two shows from the archive while I took a Saturday off to gather my thoughts. I should have brought a leaf rake. First up was “All Talk Radio!” a show from last fall after an exciting two weeks at Pundit Training Camp where I learned the valuable lessons all pundits and news commentators know, such as: it’s not what you have to say, but how long it takes you to say it. Oh, I could have talked on and on and on and on about this, but I filled up most of the hour with some great songs about talking. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • HAPPY TALK  /  Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley/  “Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley”
  • TALK TO ME, TALK TO ME  /   Freddie Cole  /  “Talk To Me”
  • TALK TO ME BABY  /  Cleo Laine  /  “Quintessential Cleo”
  • YOUR MIND IS ON VACATION  /  Mose Allison  /  “Lounge Live From The Mountain Stage”
  • GIRL TALK  /  Holly Cole  /  “Girl Talk”
  • TALK TO ME  /  Frank Sinatra  /  “The Complete Capitol Singles”
  • TOO HOT FOR WORDS  /  Lily Frost  /  “Too Hot For Words”
  • THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Bernie Sanders
  • SHOW ME  /  Karrin Allyson  /  “Daydream”
  • CAN WE TALK  /  Ben Sidran  /  “Don’t Cry For No Hipster”
  • EVERYBODY’S TALKIN’ AT ME  /  Donna Lewis  /  “Brand New Day”
  • I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT ANYMORE  /  Mark Jennett  /  “The Way I Am”
  • WORDS  /  The Real Group  /  “Live In Japan”

 

The second show, “The Complaint Department,” first aired 3 years ago. The only complaint I want to hear after the show is from your neighbors because you were playing the music too loud.

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD or Album Title

  • BUT NOT FOR ME  /  Gladys Knight  /  “Before Me”
  • HOW COULD YOU DO A THING LIKE THAT  /  Frank Sinatra  /  “Come Swing With Me”
  • RAIN JUST RAIN  /  Rigmor Gustafsson Quintet  /  “In The Light Of Day”
  • I WISH I DIDN’T LOVE YOU SO  /  Steven Pasquale  /  “Somethin’ Like Love”
  • KISSING BUG  /  Hetty Kate  /  “Kissing Bug”
  • YOU’RE TALKING TOO LOUD  /  Dave Tull  /  “I Just Want To Get Paid”
  • TELEPHONE SONG  /  Stan Getz & Astrud  Gilberto  /  “The Girl From Ipanema”
  • WHININ’ BOY BLUES  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Hugh Laurie  /  “Let Them Talk”
  • WHY DON’T YOU DO RIGHT  /  Delicatessen  /  “My Baby Just Cares For Me”
  • CAUGHT YOU SPREADING YOUR LOVE AROUND  /  Uptown Vocal Jazz Quartet  /  “Hustlin’ For A Gig”
  • EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO ME  /  Ella Fitzgerald  /  “Hello Love”
  • SINCE I FELL FOR YOU  /  Mark Murphy & The Metropole Orch.  /  “The Dream”
  • PARIS MISMATCH  /  (Theme Music)  / Cody Owen Stine 

I’ll be back live next Saturday, but if you want to listen to more “canned music” (in tribute to the late Dan Hicks), try a Turntable For One podcast on PRX, the Public Radio Exchange. Click the link below:
