PLAYLIST FOR “THE BIG QUESTIONS OF LIFE” (9.10.22)

11 Sep

I usually give my email during the show and when I get email, it’s usually people asking questions. Some of the questions….well…”Dear Turntable For One – How Deep is The Ocean? Why don’t you jump in and report back.” You’ll be happy to know that person had his radio taken away from him. 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. You gotta be kidding!  This week I told the audience I vouchsafe, promise and swear no answers at all. It was my turn to ask the big questions of Life!

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNCERTAINTY” – AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (1.29.22)

30 Jan

I am certain of one thing: this weekend it snowed. It snowed a ton. And I didn’t make it to the station. So instead we listened to a show from last Fall. It certainly filled the two hours. And what else? Well, about that I am uncertain. Here’s what I wrote about the show back then:

 

 “The Road Not Taken”

By Robert Frost  

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

 And be one traveler, long I stood

  And looked down one as far as I could. 

Okay, everyone finds this poem iconic and inspiring. Really? Do you know where these roads go? I don’t. Do you know if there are bears or poison ivy or rest stops? I don’t. So how can you be so certain you’re making a good decision and not a bad mistake? You can’t! You can’t be certain and that’s about the only thing you can be certain of. Especially when I spent two hours presenting A Musical Tribute To Uncertainty. (Did everyone love it? Well, I’m not entirely certain about that…)

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. If you’ve been examining or reexamining your life, you’ve probably thought. “Wouldn’t it be great if I could turn back the clock?” Well, this was  your night! 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 “MOOD” (1.23.21)

24 Jan

If i were posting on Instagram or Facebook, I could just post an appropriate photo with one single word, MOOD. That doesn’t work so well on radio, so instead I played songs that captured my mood this week as I watched everything that happened, everything that (thank God) didn’t happen, and indulged in the feeling of a new beginning and new hope.

PLAYLIST FOR “POSITIVE VIBES” (11.14.20)

15 Nov

I tried a little experiment this week – an experiment in terror for me, that is. Could I send out nothing but positive vibes and eschew my inherent pessimism for an entire two hours? It seems to me the times demand this kind of sacrifice and I went for it with a collection of positive songs, positive singers, positive people (a mini-tribute to Fred Rogers), and a few of my favorite oh-so-positive vibes players – messers Gibbs, Wolfe, and Jackson. And for an extra treat – maybe for me only – I did the show live and in person at the station, something that’s not going to happen again until the infection rates really start to dive.

PLAYLIST FOR “HOW SWEET IT IS” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST (10.24.20)

25 Oct

Seems to me the world needs some sweetness even more than when I first did this show last June. Guaranteed “sweet” songs with no sugary aftertaste. Here’s how I introduced the show last summer. 

Sweet – it’s a word that you don’t hear much, especially now. Home Sweet Home? After three months of sheltering in place, what’s so sweet about being home? Sweet Dreams? Its been months since I had one. Sweet Spot? I know what it used to mean, but now it means keeping six feet away from people. Sweet Nothings? That’s still how most people describe the long, rambling opens to my shows (just like this). So I thought it was time to give Sweet a little love. It was only for two hours – then everyone could go back to life as we know it these days.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO MOMS 2020” (5.9.20)

11 May

She gave you 50% of your chromosomes, 75% of your attitudes, 90% of your self-esteem, and 100% of the conversations you have with your therapist. Moms. Where would we be without them? And even though Mother’s Day this year was a little more unusual than ever, I still maintained tradition with the annual Turntable For One tribute to Mother’s Day – with songs about moms, songs from mom’s point of view, and songs about motherly advice.
