PLAYLIST FOR “GONE FISHIN'” (6.28.16)

27 Jun

WMNR Fine Arts Radio was celebrating another Musical Theme Week, “Gone Fishin'”. So, of course, I jumped right in, since I’ve spent my life  fishing for the right words and angling for an original thought. Although I came up with just two songs actually about fishing, I found songs about fishing metaphors (see if you can guess which metaphor goes with which songs) and songs about taking off and going traveling in general.

PLAYLIST FOR “THE (LOST) ART OF WRITING LETTERS” (5.14.16)

16 May

Remember when 140 characters meant a Tolstoy novel, not our major means of communicating with each other? Remember when Snail Mail referred to the gender of a specie, not to the U.S. Postal Service? Remember when a sound bite was an accident with the neighbor’s dog, not a statement by a politician? (Although you’d probably be wise to get a rabies shot after both of those events.) We seem to have lost a number of things these days – skills such as logic, empathy, listening. This week I thought I’d tackle the lost art of letter writing with a couple dozen wonderful songs and singers on the topic.

  • FAMOUS BLUE RAINCOAT  /  Leonard Cohen  /  “The Essential Leonard Cohen”
  • DEAR BIX  / Renee Yoxon & Chad Linsley  /  “Impossible: Live At Musideum”
  • TONY BENNETT  /  Kevin Mahogany  /  “Old, New, Borrowed, And The Blues”
  • TOO MARVELOUS FOR WORDS  /  Helen Merrill  /  “Casa Forte”
  • YOU’RE THE TOP  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Cary Grant & Ginny Sims  /  “Music of Cole Porter”
