PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE IMPERATIVE MOOD” (11.19.22)

21 Nov

Once again, Turntable For One went  where no other radio programs dare to go – possibly because all they care about is being entertaining. Instead I decided it was time to do my best to try to make grammar great – and even glorious – again! This time with a Musical Tribute to the Imperative Mood. Was there a test? No, I figure listening to my show is an endurance test and that’s enough.

PLAYLIST FOR “DESERT ISLAND GAME – 2022 (11.12.22)

13 Nov

It could have been worse.  Election Day Tuesday was supposed to be worse.  So bad I thought I might have to head for a desert island. I even packed a suitcase and told the radio station I was changing the name of the show to Palm Tree For One. But it didn’t turn out as catastrophically as I feared. Still, it never hurts to be prepared.  So this week I planned what music I’ll bring with me if I have to take a mental health day for the next 20 years.

PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2022” (7.2.22)

3 Jul

The last show of the season, so for the first hour I handed out summer listening assignments and for the second hour said goodbye. I also told the audience about my summer job. Yes for the 12th summer in a row, I’ll be lurking in people’s neighborhoods. Not in a raincoat! In an ice cream truck. Here are some of the treats I’ll be offering this year:

Ice Cream Treats 2022

Johnny Depp/Amber Herd sundae. It doesn’t come in a cone or a cup. It’s just a giant scoop of Chocolate ice cream — But be careful not to dump it in the bed.

Wordle Popsicle — If you can guess the flavor in 6 tries, it’s free!

Something new: The Joe Biden Malarkey Malted  — it’s like his sainted mother always said… You can fool some of the people some of the time and that’s usually sufficient.

I’ll be featuring a huge new Banana Split  — Forty scoops of ice cream and 22 bananas.  It’s Merrick Garland’s favorite which means I bet you’ll never get to the bottom of it.  

Of course I have Rainbow Sherbet in celebration of Pride Month…

You know what absolutely vanished off my shelves this year?  The Baby formula milkshake —  Better luck next year.

Want to get in on the ground floor of a great deal?  Try my Cryptocurrency cone – a bargain at $400.  Of course by 2:00 p.m. it’ll be $1500 — and by 3:30 it’s down to $42 bucks.  Don’t forget: with every crypto cone you get a compete set of the emperor’s new clothes. 

By the way, due to supply chain issues none of the ice cream cones actually come with cones

Last but not least…

A special sundae this year — it’s my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae. If you’re a guy  you can choose any of my 48 flavors. If you’re a woman, you don’t get a choice. So order my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae and enjoy a trip back to the 18th century!

PLAYLIST FOR “TURNTABLE FOR ONE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY” -AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (12.18.21)

19 Dec

I started my Christmas vacation a little early and played the 2020 Christmas program, recorded back when we were all concerned about the pandemic and worried if large gatherings were the smartest way to celebrate the holiday. Hmmm – it seems the more things change…  Here’s the description I wrote about the show last year:

Some traditional holiday favorites, both from the show and around my house; plus a demo of a Christmas song with music composed by my son, Cody, and lyrics written by my wife, Megan. And if that weren’t enough to keep you awake and because no one begged me not to do it, once again I played the worst Christmas song ever written as sung by Robert Goulet. And what Turntable For One Christmas Party would be complete without the annual and traditional heartwarming retelling of the story of how a beloved Christmas song nearly got me expelled from Hebrew school? Merry and Happy and the best and safest holidays possible for all.  I’ll be back in the new year.

PLAYLIST FOR “LYRICS CAME LATER” (11.20.21)

21 Nov

In the beginning was the Word. Okay, fine. But not this week. Not on this show. Almost everything I played started out as an instrumental and the lyrics came later. To bring things back to reality, I ended with a melody played so beautifully that I don’t think it really needed the lyrics added later and, finally, with a lyric that Johnny Mercer wrote but didn’t live long enough to set to music.

PLAYLIST FOR “REDUX” (3.20.21)

21 Mar

I divided the show into two parts this week, one part the traditional Turntable For One party for St. Patrick’s Day, replete with Irish singers and musicians, Irish-American singers and musicians, and the most important Turntable for One tradition of all: me eating a bowl of Lucky Charms on the air. To celebrate the fact that this was my first live show from the station in a long, long while, in the second part of the show I shared some of the music that helped get me through the last 12 months of sheltering in place.
