PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO DIRECT ADDRESS” (1.16.21)

17 Jan

“What we got here is failure to communicate,” said one of the most reprehensible yet prescient movie villains of all time. That line of dialogue has been playing frequently in my head these days. How can we communicate better? Of course, my answer to this and so many other questions is simple: better grammar. So in my continuing effort to leave no listener behind, I made a case for the vocative case, another term for the function of grammar known as direct address. All of the songs served as examples, using a name, a term of endearment, or a feeling to grab the attention of the intended object of communication. If only the rest of the world would function according to the orderly, predictable precepts in my dog-eared high school grammar book.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (8.22.20)

23 Aug

This is a show from last March. At that time Joe Biden was an ascendent candidate and the man of the moment. Ditto for this past week, so I played the show again. If you don’t think that Biden is the man of the moment, feel free to tell yourself that the show is dedicated to Joe DiMaggio, or Jo March, or Joseph K or just a cup of joe. To give an appearance of fairness back then, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too. I kept those in. Back with a new show next week.
