13 Mar

HINT:

 

It’s that time again – green beer, green bread, green cheese. Yes, it’s time for me to clean out my refrigerator before it attacks me. It’s also time to enjoy some traditional foods – and I don’t mean boxty, coddle, or barmbrack! (See above)

The Oscars, the Tonys, the Golden Globes, the Emmys, the Grammys – everybody loves award shows with all the attendant and attendees’ glitz and glamour. Shouldn’t I get a piece of this?

PLAYLIST FOR “MARIE KONDO WEEK!” (2,23.19)

24 Feb

This week’s show was a tribute to the diva of decluttering, the dean of de-accession, the titan of tidying up – Marie Kondo. I played nothing but music that “sparks joy” for me and tossed in a few joyful requests from the audience. Plus, following Marie Kondo’s advice, I gathered all my musical themes, thanked several of them for their service, and summarily threw them away.
