I believe there are two kinds of people in the world – morning people and night people. I vote for the latter because they have the good sense and good taste to stay up and listen to my show.  But I played songs for both just in case…

PLAYLIST FOR “TOWN & COUNTRY” (2.6.21)

7 Feb

Remember the story we were taught when we were little? It was the story of the country mouse, cautious and practical, and the city mouse, worldly and sophisticated. I know my teachers were trying to teach us to be like the common sense country mouse. And I was never able to convince them that the two mice would be indistinguishable when caught in a sticky trap. And so the debate about which is better – living in the country or living in the city – has gone on and on and on. And it went on during my show, too. Did I throw light on this debate or just throw shade? Did I answer the questions or question the answers? Really? You gotta be kidding. I just tried to fill two hours with songs about the city and songs about the country. Plus a shout-out to the Super Bowl cities. (I let Gloria Estefan represent Florida because I can’t think of a single song about FL or any of its cities I want to hear.)

PLAYLIST FOR “DESERT ISLAND GAME” (1.30.21)

1 Feb

It’s Winter. It’s cold. Snow is coming. A lot of it. And all the pandemic doctors and scientists are telling us it’s always dark just before it gets even darker! Who’s ready for a desert island? Put your hands down. I’m talking about me, not you. So I spent the show deciding which music or which versions to take to this desert island. I also spent time asking people to go to wmnr.org to become a member or make a pledge during the station’s Winter Fundraising Drive. I raised a good chunk of money and, I hope I raised hopes that some day soon we will be able to go to desert islands again. We can hope.

Anybody else having bad dreams these nights? So, I’ve not been getting much sleep, but I did get a theme for this week’s show – songs about dreams and a few songs about things to dream about.
