PLAYLIST FOR “AN EVENING WITH FRANK” (4.2.22)

3 Apr

He gave us so much wonderful, unforgettable music. Wait, you’re thinking of that Frank? I was thinking of Frank Loesser and I tried to squeeze as many gems in his voluminous songbook from movies, Broadway, and popular song into a couple hours as I could. But before the Evening With Frank began, I opened the show again with another song from a young Ukrainian jazz singer who remains (as of this posting) safe and even hopeful in Kyiv.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (8.22.20)

23 Aug

This is a show from last March. At that time Joe Biden was an ascendent candidate and the man of the moment. Ditto for this past week, so I played the show again. If you don’t think that Biden is the man of the moment, feel free to tell yourself that the show is dedicated to Joe DiMaggio, or Jo March, or Joseph K or just a cup of joe. To give an appearance of fairness back then, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too. I kept those in. Back with a new show next week.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” (3.07.20)

8 Mar

I planned this show months and months ago, just a show featuring some of my favorite songs, singers, and musicians all named Joe. At the time I thought Joe Biden was toast, not someone voters months later would be toasting. Okay, times are different now, but no way I’m throwing away a good idea – especially since they are coming with less and less frequency. To give an appearance of fairness, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too.

I’ve played songs that compare people to ghosts, dogs, cats, gypsies, tramps, and thieves, mysteries, and more. You know what I haven’t played? What’s that?
