PLAYLIST FOR “SONGS ABOUT SONGS” (A SHOW FROM THE ARCHIVES) (9.30.17)

2 Oct

I couldn’t do a live show this week; fortunately, the opposite isn’t doing a dead show, but presenting a show from the Turntable For One archives. This was a show from a year or so ago, when I opined, Over the last 7 years, I’ve come up with musical themes of songs about nearly everything you can think of. Hope you caught my previous shows on songs about Silverware Safety, Practical Eccentricities, and The Only Thing The NSA Isn’t Watching Is Paint Drying. This week was more about music than my paranoia.  I’m content.
