PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNREALITY – REALLY1” (5.14.22)

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 “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…

He gave us so much wonderful, unforgettable music. Wait, you’re thinking of that Frank? I was thinking of Frank Loesser and I tried to squeeze as many gems in his voluminous songbook from movies, Broadway, and popular song into a couple hours as I could.

I desperately need a break. I desperately need something to celebrate. I tried to combine the two with a tribute to Spring. But not without first opening the show with another Ukrainian jazz artist.
