PLAYLIST FOR “LAUGHING AT LIFE”-AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (2.5.22)

6 Feb

A show from the archives, this time from back in 2017, which explains why you can hear the last vestiges of hope in my voice. Here’s how I introduced the show back then…

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.

PLAYLIST FOR “BABY TALK” (1.15.22)

Taking baby steps – isn’t that what I was doing in my driveway after the last snow storm? Out of the mouths of babes – isn’t that why we put bibs on them? Sleep like a baby – I’m sure my audience can relate to that. Throw the baby out with the bath water – doesn’t that just mean it’s time to get your eyes examined? What’s with all the baby stuff, Bill? Because this week I dedicated the show to nothing but baby talk with some wonderful singers and, of course, the usual babbling and gurgling from me.

It’s that time of year again. The season of Peace On Earth and Good Will toward Men. How’s that going so far? Not great, I know. Why not?

Couldn’t do a live show so we did (what I consider) the next best thing: we listened to a favorite show from a couple years ago. Here’s what I said about then:

18 Oct

This is a re-broadcast of a show from last April, a simpler time when I couldn’t imagine that 8 months later things could be so much worse and heartache and loss could be so preponderant. This is how I introduced the playlist back then:

While everyone’s sheltering in place or self-quarantining, there are two ways to look at this week’s show featuring all live performances from jazz clubs and venues around the world: either I’m trying to make people feel bad because of all the night life we’re missing OR I’m trying to give people hope for what’s to come after this damned pandemic has run at least its first course. Which is it? You be the judge. I just had fun playing some of my favorite singers in front of a band, behind a microphone, in front of an audience.

Anybody else having bad dreams these nights? So, I’ve not been getting much sleep, but I did get a theme for this week’s show – songs about dreams and a few songs about things to dream about.

PLAYLIST FOR “SONGS ABOUT SONGS” – A SHOW FROM THE ARCHIVES – (1.18.20)

20 Jan

MIA again last Saturday and pulled another show from the archive, a show from 2016. I’ll be back live this Saturday. Keep watching this space: Details to follow…

Over the last 7 years, I’ve thought of musical themes of songs for about nearly everything you can think of. Hope you caught my shows with songs about Boy Meets Tinder, Practical First Aid, and The Only Thing The NSA Isn’t Watching Is Paint Drying. This week’s theme, Songs About Songs, was (for a change) more about the music than my paranoia.  I’m content.
