PLAYLIST FOR “AN EVENING WITH FRANK” (AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST) (10.8.22)

9 Oct

Couldn’t do a live show this week, so I led my audience on a trip down memory lane…which, admittedly, is becoming a shorter and shorter trip for me. Here’s what I wrote when the show was first broadcast. 

He gave us so much wonderful, unforgettable music. Wait, you’re thinking of that Frank? I was thinking of Frank Loesser and I tried to squeeze as many gems in his voluminous songbook from movies, Broadway, and popular song into a couple hours as I could. But before the Evening With Frank began, I opened the show again with another song from a young Ukrainian jazz singer who remains (as of this posting) safe and even hopeful in Kyiv.

PLAYLIST FOR “HERE’S TO THE (GRACIOUS!) LOSERS (10.1.22)

3 Oct

A couple of weeks ago I was watching a college football game.  The final score was pretty humiliating – 77 to 21.  And after the game, do you know what the losing coach said?  “We lost.”   He didn’t say, the game was rigged or it was stolen.  He didn’t say someone in Venezuela or somewhere tampered with the scoreboard.  He just said, “We lost.  And it reminded me of a time long long ago when people actually admitted defeat, honestly and graciously. So I wanted to give them a little love and give a musical salute to all the gracious losers. Of course I tossed in a few sore losers just for comparison sake.

Think twice about messing with a radio host. But most of questions I get are important questions because people want me to give them important answers.

PLAYLIST FOR “FUN WITH PHOBIAS” (6.4.22)

6 Jun

We all have them. Maybe we call them quirks or superstitions. Let’s call them by their real names – fears and phobias. Fear of Heights – it’s called Acrophobia.  Dentrophobia – fear of Dentists. Even I have a phobia: The Fear of Howie Mandel suddenly showing up at my door. I’m sure there’s a name of that but I haven’t found it yet. Most of our phobias are manageable and many are actually curable. Here’s my question: are they exploitable, by which I mean could I get two hours of music out of them? Songs about phobias, songs to help overcome phobias – two hours of immersion therapy in swing.

Something unusual and special happened this weekend. No, my show wasn’t organized and coherent. I said, unusual and special, I didn’t say anything about a miracle.

The end of Daylight Saving Time.  Time to Fall behind and turn the clocks back an hour. So as what I’m calling a public service, I offered some reminders about turning back the clocks and a few suggestions for what to do with that extra hour.

PLAYLIST FOR “UNHAPPY ENDINGS” (AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST) (8.21.21)

22 Aug

I’m almost back – but I’m not quite ready to bring my vacation to an untimely end, so I’m playing a couple weeks of shows from the archive. I’ll be back live on Sept. 4th! Here’s what I said about last night’s show when it was live  a year and a half ago:

Do you like stores with happy endings? Well, this show wasn’t going to make you very happy. Unless, of course, you like wonderful singers and musicians interpreting sad songs (at all kinds of tempos). Happy now?
