PLAYLIST FOR “SPRING HAS SPRUNG 2023” (3.25.23)

26 Mar

What do these things have in common: a pogo stick, a diving board, a trampoline?  Three things I wouldn’t be caught dead on? True but not what I was thinking. The three worst golden anniversary gifts? Also true but I couldn’t get two hours of music out of that. Answer: they all have springs! And that’s what I celebrated with two hours of Spring songs, with a nod to Spring planting with Mark Jennett, Spring Fever with Gretje Angell, and Spring cleaning with Kevin Mahogany. Proving once again that Turntable For One comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lamb chop.

PLAYLIST FOR “ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY 2023” (3.18.23)

19 Mar

March 17th was National Sleep Day – the last holiday in the world I’d like my audience to celebrate. Fortunately, it was also St. Patrick’s Day. That’s more like it. So I presented a mixture of laughter and tears, a perfect combination for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Although, in truth, most of the tears were mine because once again I maintained my tradition of eating a celebratory bowl of Lucky Charms on the air. (Lucky Charms are now gluten-free. It didn’t help.)  Still, it was a grand night of Irish and Irish-American singers and a chance to celebrate the music of Jimmy McHugh.

PLAYLIST FOR “EASY DOES IT” (3.4.23)

5 Mar

You know how I work very hard planning this show every week? Some of my audience was  thinking,”Work harder.”  And some were thinking, “This show is planned?”  And the rest of them were likely thinking, “Will you get through the opening so we can listen to some music?”  The point was this week instead of working hard, I took it easy. In fact, everything about the show, especially the songs were easy. (Not entirely sure the audience got off easy.)

PLAYLIST FOR “THE MORE THE MERRIER” (2.18.23)

20 Feb

Usually I play 20-24 different singers, musicians, Mystery Vocalists each week. This week I challenged myself to play more. My goal was 57 different artists. Originally, my plan was play something by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, say Good Night, and go home. But because the choir threatened to sue me if I even mentioned their name on my show – probably for elder abuse – I had to come up with a different solution.

12 Feb

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Do you love songs about falling in love? Being in love? Staying in love? If you answered Yes to any or all of those questions, you really had a rough flight on last night’s show. Because I love songs about heartache and heartbreak. So my V. Day gift to my audience was two hours of Broken Hearts for Valentine’s Day. I’m surprised the police didn’t break in to make a cardiac arrest.

PLAYLIST FOR “WHERE OR WHEN” (2.4.23)

5 Feb

When I was a kid, the questions I asked were Who, What, Where, and How. Mostly because I was just trying to figure out if Col. Mustard killed Miss Scarlet with the candlestick in the conservatory. (Who knew there was so much murder at Julliard?) Well, now I mostly just ask two questions: Where – as in Where did I leave my glasses? And When – as in When did we have that conversation?  So because my show is nothing if not self-involved and self-referential, I played two hours of Where or When songs. BTW: I never found my glasses.
