PLAYLIST FOR “KNOWN AND UNKNOWN” (9.28.19)

28 Sep

This week’s show was ripped from the headlines with only superficial wounds as a result. Day after day we find out there are things we do know and things we don’t know. Since I’ve demonstrated time after time that I have no shame about exploiting current situations, I dedicated the show to the known and the unknown. I know I got away with it, while it’s unknown to me how I did it.

PLAYLIST FOR “THE TRUTH ABOUT MEN” (10.6.18)

7 Oct

Since we learned this week – much to my surprise – that it’s a scary time for men and that men are the true victims here, I had to do something to support all these poor unfortunate men, victims of an unfair society that never gives them any power nor respect. But what could I do being just a simple and largely ignored radio host? How about a testosterone-filled evening of man-splaining, man-rationalizing, and man-boasting songs, plus beer, of course, with an occasional view from a woman’s perspective?
