PLAYLIST FOR “WORDS FOR WORDLE” (5.21.22)

30 May

Axiom…Thumb…Under…Triad -I know, it sounds like some words I missed on a sixth grade spelling test. Well, they’re also words I’ve been using to play the addictive, time-suck word game, Wordle, figuring out the five-letter word of the day. Probably many in my audience play Wordle during my show. You can imagine how happy I am not to have their full attention. Putting that aside, I offered them a bunch of five-letter words to improve their game. Who says public service radio is dead?

PLAYLIST FOR “LOVE AND MARRIAGE…AND MUSIC” (2.1.14)

1 Feb

Every week I try to play some of the best marriages of words and music, singer and arranger, what’s written on the sheet music and what’s created in a singer’s mind. This week I also focussed on singers and musicians who are married in a more literal way. Whether they sing together, sing and play, sing and arrange, just about everyone I played is also husband and wife. And by including Mickey Rooney and his 8th wife, I was also able to reinforce the precept that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
