PLAYLIST FOR “COUPLES THERAPY” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST (11.7.20)

8 Nov

Knowing that a lot of people need therapy these days, and especially after Saturday, I played a show from last July. I thought I could help. Okay, really, I thought I could take the night off. This was my intro back then…

So I indulged in a bit of Couples Therapy this week – and before you start sending me your questions and telling me your troubles, let me explain what I meant. I played couples – married or not – who make or have made beautiful music together – literally. Where did the therapy come in? Wouldn’t you find it therapeutic to hear wonderful music like this?

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!

PLAYLIST FOR “LOVE AND MARRIAGE…AND MUSIC” (2.1.14)

1 Feb

Every week I try to play some of the best marriages of words and music, singer and arranger, what’s written on the sheet music and what’s created in a singer’s mind. This week I also focussed on singers and musicians who are married in a more literal way. Whether they sing together, sing and play, sing and arrange, just about everyone I played is also husband and wife. And by including Mickey Rooney and his 8th wife, I was also able to reinforce the precept that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
