PLAYLIST FOR: “OPEN BORDERS” (4.6.19)

7 Apr

I opened the southern border wide to celebrate just a small fraction of the songs, musicians, singers from the other side of the border who have given us so much great music. Plus I played the only Frank Sinatra song I can think of where he deliberately sings off key. And to help drive home the point of this week’s show, I also played a song from the new Broadway musical Hadestown, in which Hades, more of a demagogue than demigod, sings about building his wall around Hadestown. Sound chillingly familiar?

PLAYLIST FOR “ANYONE CAN WHISTLE” (1.12.13)

I’m not sure what I was thinking, but I programmed an entire show with or about whistling. Something I’ve never been able to do in my life. Following that logic, next week maybe songs about souffles? Surgery? The long jump? Tune in and find out.
