PLAYLIST FOR “CONTRAFACTUM – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST” (12.26.20)

27 Dec

Out with the old? That’s what I did. I played an archive show from last June as the final program for this wretched year. Let’s hope for better – and I mean the new year, certainly not my shows. Here’s what I wrote in June:

Contrafactum – it’s not just a word on Jeopardy.  Contrafactum are two different songs with the same melody but different lyrics. To jazz musicians, they are two tunes with the same chordal structure. (I tossed a few of those in for good measure – excuse the pun.) Who said educational radio is dead? Probably somebody who has listened to my show.

PLAYLIST FOR “MAKING TURNTABLE FOR ONE MORE COLORFUL” (8.15.20)

16 Aug

I get lots of requests from listeners, most of which I can’t fulfill because I sold my dueling pistols many years ago. When someone suggested that I try to make the program more colorful, immediately after my legal team informed me that I couldn’t sue for slander, I decided to give it a go. Below is my colorful solution – songs and/or singers or musicians with colorful names. (I know that Billie Holiday isn’t a color. But you know who took the solo on that cut? Urbie Green!)
