PLAYLIST FOR “GOOD VS EVIL” – A RE-BROADCAST FROM THE ARCHIVES -(1.4.20)

6 Jan

(Look what I found when I went tiptoeing through the archives! A show from Fall 2018. More to come from the archives. I’ll be back live Jan 25th.)

In the past, Turntable For One has taken on the toughest questions and found a way, sometimes skillfully (usually not), of trivializing them all. This week was no different – but the show did swing like crazy.

Any show can spend Valentine’s Day playing love songs for its audience, but only Turntable For One remembers those who are looking for love (because I can’t afford to overlook anyone who might be listening) with songs, instructions, and tips for filling out an online dating service profile.
