PLAYLIST FOR “WINNERS AND LOSERS” (11.3.18)

29 Dec

Soon it will all be in the rearview mirror; the midterms will have passed, and we’ll know who are the winners and who are the losers. It will all be over – except for the celebrating, the crying, the blaming, the lawsuits, the recounts, the excuses, the recriminations, the marches, the protests. So just to ease my listeners into this traditional, all-American period of jubilation and mourning, I played songs abut winning and losing. The singers, however, were all total winners.

PLAYLIST FOR “LAUGHING AT LIFE” (AN ARCHIVE SHOW) (11.11.17)

13 Nov

Last Saturday, a trip down memory lane with an archive show from last February. I’ll be back in this studio this week!

 

It’s true that smiling requires more muscles than frowning, which must be why smiling always tires me so quickly. Still, considering all that we know and fear about the world today, I thought it was worth spending a couple hours focusing on laughing and smiling. Okay, I didn’t feel any better at the end of the program, but at least I got to share some great songs and singers and some of my favorite laughs.

SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN

What’s the difference between a Dream and a Plan? Well, I’ve been having a lot of bad dreams lately, a lot of bad plans, too. Dreams aren’t real and they don’t come true…of course, most of my plans don’t come true, either. You know, maybe there’s no difference at all. Both of them end in disappointment and heartache – but not when singers like the ones I played are singing about plans they’re making!
