PLAYLIST FOR “HOW SWEET IT IS” (6.13.20)

14 Jun

Sweet – it’s a word that you don’t hear much, especially now. Home Sweet Home? After three months of sheltering in place, what’s so sweet about being home? Sweet Dreams? Its been months since I had one. Sweet Spot? I know what it used to mean, but now it means keeping six feet away from people. Sweet Nothings? That’s still how most people describe the long, rambling opens to my shows (just like this). So I thought it was time to give Sweet a little love. It was only for two hours – then everyone could go back to life as we know it these days.

PLAYLIST FOR “GRADUATION DAY 2018” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST (5.23.20)

24 May

I didn’t record a new show (from home) this week. Instead I went wandering through the Turntable For One archives looking for my lost youth and innocence. No luck there, but I did find this program from June a couple of years ago, which seems now like a far distant world ago. Funny how my old themes seem less ironic and more poignant these upside-down days… This is what I said two years ago: 

How about 2 hours of intelligent and coherent and compact commencement speeches and graduation messages without having to sit in the sun and wait two hour to see your kid walk across the stage and graduate in 15 seconds? Don’t try to thank me. Just doing my job.

PLAYLIST FOR “SELF-DECEPTION” (5.16.20)

17 May

The question people ask me the most is “What’s the best thing about being on the radio?” (It’s also the one question people ask me I could read on the air without upsetting the FCC.) I always tell people the best thing is talking to thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people. Of course, the truth is (especially these days) I’m home, in my office, talking into a microphone, and the only thing listening to me is my computer (and, like my audience, it occasionally drops off to sleep). Okay, so maybe I should tell people the really best thing about being on the radio is having an opportunity week after week to indulge my insatiable capacity for self-deception. Fine. I said it. Happy now? But I’m not alone. All of these songs are about people deceiving and fooling themselves about something – with some variations of self-awareness tossed in there.

PLAYLIST FOR “GIVE & TAKE WEEK” (10.12.19)

13 Oct

The two words, give and take, are frequently associated with my show, although usually in the form of “Give me a break!” and “I’m going to take a nap.” But this week all of the songs had either the words or the concepts of giving and taking. Plus it was the audience’s turn to get involved because it was Fall Fundraising week at WMNR, Fine Arts Radio (wmnr.org); so with phone and on-line pledges people put their money where my mouth is, supporting the show and this wonderful anomaly of a radio station. Thanks!
