PLAYLIST FOR “QUIZ: WHO WROTE THAT – THE GENDER REVEAL EDITION”” (1.14.23)

16 Jan

Who wrote these songs? A man or a woman? Don’t think of this as a test. Think of it as a provocative little quiz. Sure, there are right and wrong answers. Plus, how you answer does reflect how much you know about music; and what unconscious biases you have; and whether you’re a decent human being or a total disgrace. But it wasn’t a test. It also was some of my favorite music.

I usually give my email during the show and when I get email, it’s usually people asking questions. Some of the questions….well…”Dear Turntable For One – How Deep is The Ocean? Why don’t you jump in and report back.” You’ll be happy to know that person had his radio taken away from him. Think twice about messing with a radio host. But most of questions I get are important questions because people want me to give them important answers. You gotta be kidding!  This week I told the audience I vouchsafe, promise and swear no answers at all. It was my turn to ask the big questions of Life!

PLAYLIST FOR “WORDS FOR WORDLE” (5.21.22)

30 May

Axiom…Thumb…Under…Triad -I know, it sounds like some words I missed on a sixth grade spelling test. Well, they’re also words I’ve been using to play the addictive, time-suck word game, Wordle, figuring out the five-letter word of the day. Probably many in my audience play Wordle during my show. You can imagine how happy I am not to have their full attention. Putting that aside, I offered them a bunch of five-letter words to improve their game. Who says public service radio is dead?

15 May

Impossible! It just can’t be! Have you lost touch with reality? I know. It sounds like my last IRS audit. Or maybe Wolf Blitzer’s performance review. Nope. These are things people have been saying about Turntable For One for years. And this week, they were right. I paid tribute to all the things and ways people embrace, admire, and seek Unreality. Is the last song Reality or Unreality? I think that’s going to depend very much on what we all do in the near future.

PLAYLIST FOR “MORE THAN 3 TENORS” (3.19.22)

21 Mar

They were superstars on their own, iconic names who didn’t need first names: Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti. The world loved them; and they loved the world – sometimes a little too literary. When they agreed to sing together, they went from superstars to superheroes: The Three Tenors. Three? Really? That’s all it takes to be adored? I can do better – much better than that! Let the adoration flow because I presented More Than Three Tenors” this week. Of course, I meant, tenor sax players and accompanists plus a few favorite tenor voices as well.

PLAYLIST FOR “ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY” – AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (3.12.22)

13 Mar

I couldn’t make it to the station this week, but did that mean no St. Patrick’s Day party this year? Nope. I dug this show from 2019 out of the archives. This is what I wrote about the show back then:

 

 

It’s been a Turntable For One St. Patrick’s Day tradition for me to play some jazz singers from Ireland, a few Irish-American (or at least half-Irish-American) singers and musicians, and – always a highlight – for me to eat some traditional Irish food on the air – which, of course, means  a bowl of Lucky Charms. And, as if hearing me struggle and choke wasn’t incentive enough, I made this year’s party a celebration of the songs of Jimmy McHugh, the wonderful Irish-American composer.

17 Jan

Taking baby steps – isn’t that what I was doing in my driveway after the last snow storm? Out of the mouths of babes – isn’t that why we put bibs on them? Sleep like a baby – I’m sure my audience can relate to that. Throw the baby out with the bath water – doesn’t that just mean it’s time to get your eyes examined? What’s with all the baby stuff, Bill? Because this week I dedicated the show to nothing but baby talk with some wonderful singers and, of course, the usual babbling and gurgling from me.
