PLAYLIST FOR “TESTING POSITIVE” (1.7.23)

8 Jan

All my life people have been telling me, You’re so negative? Why don’t you try to be more positive. Well, for the past month I have been positive – and I’ve been miserable!  Because I have been testing positive on one damned Covid test after another. Those tests have been the most depressing tests I’ve taken since the Myers-Briggs Personality test. But, finally, after a month, I was back, testing negative – and that’s good, right?  But that’s not the way things are supposed to be. Being Negative – that’s not good.  It’s bad. Being positive?  That’s good.  I’m very confused. So I brought a bunch of songs to see which ones Test Positive – in a good way ! -and it was good to be back at my Turntable For One.

PLAYLIST FOR “CONTRAFACTUM – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST” (12.26.20)

27 Dec

Out with the old? That’s what I did. I played an archive show from last June as the final program for this wretched year. Let’s hope for better – and I mean the new year, certainly not my shows. Here’s what I wrote in June:

Contrafactum – it’s not just a word on Jeopardy.  Contrafactum are two different songs with the same melody but different lyrics. To jazz musicians, they are two tunes with the same chordal structure. (I tossed a few of those in for good measure – excuse the pun.) Who said educational radio is dead? Probably somebody who has listened to my show. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • OH! LOOK AT ME NOW  /  Mark Jennett  /  “Everybody Says Don’t”
  • OH! LOOK AT ME NOW  /  Monica Ramey & The Beegie Adair Trio  /  “Monica Ramey & The Beegie Adair Trio”

  • LI’L DARLIN’  /  Count Basie  /  “The Complete Atomic Basie”
  • LI’L DARLIN’  /  Monica Borrfors  /  “Li’l Darlin’”
  • DON’T DREAM OF ANYBODY BUT ME  /  (Mystery Vocalist)   /  Jackie DeShannon  /  “For You”
  • SHINY STOCKINGS  /  Lambert, Hendricks, & Bavan  /  “At Basin Street East”
  • SHINY STOCKINGS  /  Ella Fitzgerald & Count Basie  /  “Ella & Basie”
