PLAYLIST FOR “SPRING 2020” (4.4.20)

5 Apr

Doesn’t seem like there’s much to celebrate these days. But the grass is greening; trees are budding, and flowers are popping out of the ground. That means it’s time for my annual show with the musical theme, Seasonal Allergies. However, instead I chose something more positive. True, I did slip in some wonderfully grumpy Spring songs. After all, it is my show.

I don’t get it why people are so negative about the word, old. Some of our greatest songwriters have used that word in some of their greatest songs. And some of our youngest singers are giving new voice to these old songs. I say, this grievous mistake must be corrected. (Or am I just up to my old tricks, trying to fill two hours with music? You be the judge…)
