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.
