PLAYLIST FOR “IN THE COMPANY OF ACCOMPANISTS” (5.22.21)

23 May

Usually I shine the spotlight on the singer behind the mic, but this week I also wanted to pay tribute to some of the other people on the bandstand, the indispensable musicians who are just as adept and flexible and generous in supporting a singer as they are in taking a solo.

PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL COMFORT FOOD” (1.9.21)

10 Jan

Well, that didn’t take very long, 2021. You went from an exhilarating high on Tuesday to an abysmal low on Wednesday. In utter disbelief of  events we all were watching, I looked for a modicum of solace, peace, and even hope from a familiar source: comfort food – ice cream, mashed potatoes, peanut butter on matzoh. And this week on the show, instead of an ironic theme, I decided just to share some of my go-to musical comfort food – songs and musicians I turn to when I need them most. And, boy, I really needed them this week.

Looking back at the god-awful events of 2020 was entirely too upsetting, although looking back at how I reacted to those events with my musical themes may be almost as upsetting. I think we can do better in 2021. We have to.

Though there aren’t that many reasons to sing or dance these days, just to make certain we still remember what they look and sound like, I played a couple of hours of “dance” song and great singers. Now that’s my idea of dancing with the stars!

PLAYLIST FOR “SUCKERS AND LOSERS” (9.12.20)

13 Sep

I don’t know why I thought of this theme. Must be something in the air. So I played some of my favorite sucker/loser songs; and after half an hour, I told the audience that I’d been suckering them into thinking I was just doing another one of those ironic themes. I dedicated the rest of the show to musicians, singers, composers, and lyricist  who are/were definitely non-suckers and non-losers. Not only have they served to create, expand, and embolden the world of jazz, but also they served this country in its military forces. (I also took a moment or two to grieve the passing of Gary Peacock.)

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.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO CLIMATE CHANGE” (10.19.19)

20 Oct

The earth is heating up, ice caps and glaciers are melting, the seas are rising, and many species, including our own, are threatened with extinction. What are we going to do? Well, I did what I always do: I exploited these serious problems, trivializing them with two hours of catchy, swinging, and often ironic songs. Some of them were comments on current conditions; others were things we need to curtail to save the planet. The first song was an answer to “What’s going to be the new capital city of the East Coast?” The second song was written in 1921 but casts an eerie darkness to what’s going on today. Just to be a pro-active citizen, I recycled and re-used a previous mystery vocalist. And as for the last two songs: which one will future generations be singing? That’s up to us now.

PLAYLIST FOR “THE T.F.O. AWARDS” (3.2.19)

2 Mar

The Oscars, the Tonys, the Golden Globes, the Emmys, the Grammys – everybody loves award shows with all the attendant and attendees’ glitz and glamour. Shouldn’t I get a piece of this? Probably not, but when have I ever let good decisions or good taste interfere with my plans? So this week I made up arbitrary categories and presented awards to performers who, unlike myself, have made a positive difference to my show. Introducing the “T.F.O. Awards” – and, no, that doesn’t stand for Terrifying Fundamentalists Objectives.
