PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO DIRECT ADDRESS” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST (BETTER KNOWN AS A RERUN) (1.21.23)

22 Jan

I didn’t make it to the station this week, so I played a show from when I was younger and the world was easier to understand. Okay, just when I was younger. Here’s what I said about it the first time around:

“‘What we got here is failure to communicate,’ said one of the most reprehensible yet prescient movie villains of all time. That line of dialogue has been playing frequently in my head these days. How can we communicate better? Of course, my answer to this and so many other questions is simple: better grammar. So in my continuing effort to leave no listener behind, I made a case for the vocative case, another term for the function of grammar known as direct address. All of the songs served as examples, using a name, a term of endearment, or a feeling to grab the attention of the intended object of communication. If only the rest of the world would function according to the orderly, predictable precepts in my dog-eared high school grammar book.”

PLAYLIST FOR “QUIZ: WHO WROTE THAT – THE GENDER REVEAL EDITION”” (1.14.23)

16 Jan

Who wrote these songs? A man or a woman? Don’t think of this as a test. Think of it as a provocative little quiz. Sure, there are right and wrong answers. Plus, how you answer does reflect how much you know about music; and what unconscious biases you have; and whether you’re a decent human being or a total disgrace. But it wasn’t a test. It also was some of my favorite music.

PLAYLIST FOR “DESERT ISLAND GAME – 2022 (11.12.22)

13 Nov

It could have been worse.  Election Day Tuesday was supposed to be worse.  So bad I thought I might have to head for a desert island. I even packed a suitcase and told the radio station I was changing the name of the show to Palm Tree For One. But it didn’t turn out as catastrophically as I feared. Still, it never hurts to be prepared.  So this week I planned what music I’ll bring with me if I have to take a mental health day for the next 20 years.

PLAYLIST FOR “HERE’S TO THE (GRACIOUS!) LOSERS (10.1.22)

3 Oct

A couple of weeks ago I was watching a college football game.  The final score was pretty humiliating – 77 to 21.  And after the game, do you know what the losing coach said?  “We lost.”   He didn’t say, the game was rigged or it was stolen.  He didn’t say someone in Venezuela or somewhere tampered with the scoreboard.  He just said, “We lost.  And it reminded me of a time long long ago when people actually admitted defeat, honestly and graciously. So I wanted to give them a little love and give a musical salute to all the gracious losers. Of course I tossed in a few sore losers just for comparison sake.

I desperately need a break. I desperately need something to celebrate. I tried to combine the two with a tribute to Spring. But not without first opening the show with another Ukrainian jazz artist.

PLAYLIST FOR “DISINFORMATION WEEK” (3.5.22)

6 Mar

Disinformation. It’s a word we’re hearing frequently these days. Some people call Disinformation propaganda; some people with a straight face call it alternative facts. I call it pernicious lies. So I spent two hours defining and explicating Disinformation; and, most importantly, telling people how to protect themselves from it. JUST KIDDING! You know me. Instead, I spent the two hours exploiting this sensitive issue and squeezing every last drop of irony and rueful laughter from it. But before things got too silly, I started the show with a much-too appropriately titled Ukrainian folk song, recognizing the only thing breaking apart faster than my heart is the world

PLAYLIST FOR “ANNIVERSARY” (1.8.22)

9 Jan

 2022 is just a week old, but it’s been an eventful week. We observed the one-year anniversary of one of the most disgraceful, unforgettable, unforgivable moments in American history. On a happier note – there are happier notes. WMNR Fine Arts Radio celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2022.  On a personal note, my wife and I celebrated our 52nd anniversary this week. Did we go to a fabulous restaurant?  No, not when omicron is on most menus as a main course. Did we go ice skating? (Something Megan has loved her entire life.) Let me just say that the only things more brittle than my ego are my bones. So we went dancing instead?  Did you hear what I just said about my bones?  Actually, no, that one’s more about my ego.  Which finally brings me to this week’s theme if anyone is still awake. I wanted to celebrate my anniversary and my wife with some of the music that brought us together, some of the music Megan and I discovered together, some of the music that has sustained us. In short: just when you thought this show couldn’t get more self-indulgent, I presented two hours of Music We Love on this Happy Anniversary edition of Turntable For One. (Starting with the music that played when Megan walked down the aisle at our wedding.)

PLAYLIST FOR “LIGHTBULB MOMENTS” (11.13.21)

15 Nov

They don’t happen often and they don’t happen to everyone. But if one does happen to you, it could change your life. Of course I’m talking about an IRS audit. Of course I’m not talking about an IRS audit. I’m talking about those out-of-the-blue, eye opening moments of inspiration or maybe self-discovery. One thing: they’re always moments of clarity. I don’t know what you call them: Serendipity? Intuition? Divine Intervention? Years and years of therapy? I called them something else this week. I called them Lightbulb Moments because that’s how I could get two-hours of music out of them – tossing in a few personal lightbulb moments that changed my own musical life.
