PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S RAINING CATS AND…EVEN MORE CATS” (4.9.22)

10 Apr

I wanted to do a special show for a special audience who never choose to listen to the show but listen to the show nearly every week, often sitting in someone’s lap or, more likely, sitting in exactly the chair someone else wants to sit in. So I dedicated the show to all the cats who are probably my furriest and  also my most loyal listeners with songs about cats and songs sung by Cats and Kats. During the show listeners in AZ sent me a photo of their cat, Baxter, listening to my show with them. Baxter is different from most of my audience not because he has whiskers and a tail, but because he’s clearly awake. And I also played a song by another Ukrainian jazz artist because…

PLAYLIST FOR “LAUGHING AT LIFE”-AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (2.5.22)

6 Feb

A show from the archives, this time from back in 2017, which explains why you can hear the last vestiges of hope in my voice. Here’s how I introduced the show back then…

It’s true that smiling requires more muscles than frowning, which must be why smiling always tires me so quickly. Still, considering all that we know and fear about the world today, I thought it was worth spending a couple hours focusing on laughing and smiling. Okay, I didn’t feel any better at the end of the program, but at least I got to share some great songs and singers and some of my favorite laughs.

PLAYLIST FOR “BABY TALK” (1.15.22)

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.

PLAYLIST FOR “TURNTABLE FOR ONE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY” -AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (12.18.21)

19 Dec

I started my Christmas vacation a little early and played the 2020 Christmas program, recorded back when we were all concerned about the pandemic and worried if large gatherings were the smartest way to celebrate the holiday. Hmmm – it seems the more things change…  Here’s the description I wrote about the show last year:

Some traditional holiday favorites, both from the show and around my house; plus a demo of a Christmas song with music composed by my son, Cody, and lyrics written by my wife, Megan. And if that weren’t enough to keep you awake and because no one begged me not to do it, once again I played the worst Christmas song ever written as sung by Robert Goulet. And what Turntable For One Christmas Party would be complete without the annual and traditional heartwarming retelling of the story of how a beloved Christmas song nearly got me expelled from Hebrew school? Merry and Happy and the best and safest holidays possible for all.  I’ll be back in the new year.

PLAYLIST FOR “NEW HOLIDAY MUSIC 2021” (12.11.21)

12 Dec

It’s that time of year again. The season of Peace On Earth and Good Will toward Men. How’s that going so far? Not great, I know. Why not? I think this is clearly another example of a supply chain problem. Still, there are some who have tried to spread holiday spirit undaunted by pandemics and politics and vaccination vexations. I mean  the singers, songwriters, and musicians who created a ton of new holiday CDs and music. They were the stars this week.

Something unusual and special happened this weekend. No, my show wasn’t organized and coherent. I said, unusual and special, I didn’t say anything about a miracle.

The end of Daylight Saving Time.  Time to Fall behind and turn the clocks back an hour.

PLAYLIST FOR “WILLPOWER VS WON’T-POWER” (6.5.21)

6 Jun

What does it take to lose weight? Willpower. Stop biting your nails? Willpower. What does it take to stop watching America’s Got Talent? Half a brain – but that’s a different issue. Getting back on topic: what does it take to give up smoking? Again, Willpower. So let me get this straight: Willpower is forcing yourself not to do something. Wouldn’t it make more sense to call it Won’t-power?  But no – everyone gives Willpower all the praise and approbation. Well, not  this week! I think Won’t is just as important to songwriters as Will – maybe more important. I tried to prove that with songs about Will and Won’t. I won’t tell you which side won; but I will tell you the music definitely won.
