PLAYLIST FOR “HAPPY FATHER’S DAY 2020!” (6.20.20)

21 Jun

My annual salute to Dads with songs about dads, songs sung and written by dads, songs I think dads would/should sing, songs of fatherly advice, some songs I gave myself just as a Father’s Day present, plus a couple stories about my dad and about being a dad myself. In short, another wonderfully self-indulgent show. I am content.

PLAYLIST FOR “10th ANNUAL MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR” (11.30.19)

1 Dec

This is one of my favorite shows every year, a chance to highlight music I’m thankful for and invite other WMNR broadcasters (B) and some of my favorite singers to talk about and introduce music that’s important to them. Plus, because this show always falls near my birthday, it’s also “family night” at Turntable For One. So my wife and son join me at the radio station to offer their selections.

PLAYLIST FOR “I GOT TWO WORDS FOR YOU” (9.7.19)

9 Sep

You know what drives me crazy? People who over-use already tired rhetorical cliches, such as “With all due respect” – which is always a lie. My least favorite: “I got two words for you…” I thought (hoped) if I used that phrase over and over and over for two hours and if every song I played had a two-word title, maybe – just maybe – people would think twice (or maybe even once) and not use that annoying expression. Did it work? I got three words for myself: “In your dreams.”

PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2019 – SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” (6.29.19)

30 Jun

Turntable For One is on hiatus until August 31st. So, as I always do on the final program, I gave out summer listening assignments for July and August. Plus, as I also always do, I talked about the ice cream treats I’ll be serving on my summer job on a wandering ice cream truck.

On the menu this year: 20 different ice creams in one bowl. Last year I called it the Kitchen Sink sundae; this year: the Democratic debate sundae.

Last year I sold the classic orange sherbet treat, the skyrocket. This year I’m testing something new and explosive: Little Skyrocket Man.

How about a Polar Icecap sundae? (Which is really just a glass of warm water.)

New this year: the Bill Barr Milkshake – you can order it but it will never show up.

I’m trying out a new combination of mint and peach ice creams – I’m hoping peach-mint really catches on this summer.

Don’t forget about The Infrastructure Sundae – a combination of Rocky Road ice cream and crumbled bridge mix.

A green reminder: When you’re done with your ice cream, pass your spoon on to the next customer. (Hey – either you believe in recycling or you don’t!)
