PLAYLIST FOR “SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” THE SEASON FINALE (6.30.18

30 Jun

I’ll be off the air for July and August, pre-empted by live concerts from Tanglewood. So, once again, as a goodbye treat, I offered listeners music to listen to during the summer which we can discuss when I return in September (I expect complete essays with full bibliographies). I’m sure America will be great again by the time I get back. In truth I just hope we survive to see the Fall.

SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN

What’s the difference between a Dream and a Plan? Well, I’ve been having a lot of bad dreams lately, a lot of bad plans, too. Dreams aren’t real and they don’t come true…of course, most of my plans don’t come true, either. You know, maybe there’s no difference at all. Both of them end in disappointment and heartache – but not when singers like the ones I played are singing about plans they’re making!
