PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2022” (7.2.22)

3 Jul

The last show of the season, so for the first hour I handed out summer listening assignments and for the second hour said goodbye. I also told the audience about my summer job. Yes for the 12th summer in a row, I’ll be lurking in people’s neighborhoods. Not in a raincoat! In an ice cream truck. Here are some of the treats I’ll be offering this year:

Ice Cream Treats 2022

Johnny Depp/Amber Herd sundae. It doesn’t come in a cone or a cup. It’s just a giant scoop of Chocolate ice cream — But be careful not to dump it in the bed.

Wordle Popsicle — If you can guess the flavor in 6 tries, it’s free!

Something new: The Joe Biden Malarkey Malted  — it’s like his sainted mother always said… You can fool some of the people some of the time and that’s usually sufficient.

I’ll be featuring a huge new Banana Split  — Forty scoops of ice cream and 22 bananas.  It’s Merrick Garland’s favorite which means I bet you’ll never get to the bottom of it.  

Of course I have Rainbow Sherbet in celebration of Pride Month…

You know what absolutely vanished off my shelves this year?  The Baby formula milkshake —  Better luck next year.

Want to get in on the ground floor of a great deal?  Try my Cryptocurrency cone – a bargain at $400.  Of course by 2:00 p.m. it’ll be $1500 — and by 3:30 it’s down to $42 bucks.  Don’t forget: with every crypto cone you get a compete set of the emperor’s new clothes. 

By the way, due to supply chain issues none of the ice cream cones actually come with cones

Last but not least…

A special sundae this year — it’s my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae. If you’re a guy  you can choose any of my 48 flavors. If you’re a woman, you don’t get a choice. So order my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae and enjoy a trip back to the 18th century!

PLAYLIST FOR “ELLA FITZGERALD CHALLENGES THE WORLD” – AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (5.1.21)

2 May

This week I played a show from another world ago. No, I don’t mean we listened to an episode of Gunsmoke. I reached into the archives and dusted off a show from 2016. This is what I wrote about it back then:

This week Ella Fitzgerald took on all comers in a head-to-head, well, really a voice-to-voice competition. She sang standards and some surprising duets; she even challenged Sarah Vaughan in a “forgetting the lyrics” competition (Sarah won) and challenged Shirley Horn to a “slow singing” competition (Shirley won). But it was impossible to listen to this show without marveling at Ella’s musicality and her warmth and without feeling fortunate that we had her for so long.

PLAYLIST FOR “LET’S GO CLUBBING” (AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST) (10.17.20)

18 Oct

This is a re-broadcast of a show from last April, a simpler time when I couldn’t imagine that 8 months later things could be so much worse and heartache and loss could be so preponderant. This is how I introduced the playlist back then:

While everyone’s sheltering in place or self-quarantining, there are two ways to look at this week’s show featuring all live performances from jazz clubs and venues around the world: either I’m trying to make people feel bad because of all the night life we’re missing OR I’m trying to give people hope for what’s to come after this damned pandemic has run at least its first course. Which is it? You be the judge. I just had fun playing some of my favorite singers in front of a band, behind a microphone, in front of an audience. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN  /  Kurt Elling & James Morrison  /  “Live In New York”
  • I’M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT  /  Mimi Fox & Greta Matassa  /  “Two For The road”

  • GET ME TO THE CHURCH  /  Frank Sinatra & Count Basie  /  “Vegas”
  • STREET OF DREAMS  /  Frank Sinatra & Count Basie  /  “Vegas”
  • HEEBIE JEEBIES  /  Duchess  /  “Live At The Jazz Standard”

  • CRAZY RHYTHM  /  The Hot Sardines  /  “Welcome Home Bon Voyage”
  • PRELUDE TO A KISS  /  Rahsaan Roland Kirk  /  “Bright Moments”
  • YOU FASCINATE ME SO  /  Mark Murphy  /  “Wild & Free”
