PLAYLIST FOR “PREVIEW OF COMING ATTRACTIONS FOR 2019” (1.5.19)

6 Jan

The year in music didn’t start on a happy note. Kellye Gray, a unique and passionate singer died suddenly. Still, with all of these interesting new singers and all of the music being released we’ve never heard before from singers and musicians we know and love, I tried to tell my audience 2019 was going to be a good year for Turntable For One. (I’d say it was like preaching to the choir, but I don’t think any choirs listen to my show.)

PLAYLIST FOR “JAZZ JUKEBOX” (11.17.18)

19 Nov

Saturday afternoon, I sat in for Garrett Stack on his program American Jukebox, rock and pop hits of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.  So I thought I’d spend Saturday evening on my show playing jazz versions of pop tunes. I gave the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Dorothy Fields, etc. the night off.  They didn’t complain, probably for reasons of death.
