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. So nice to be back, like Spring flowers, green grass, and seasonal allergies.

PLAYLIST FOR “DESERT ISLAND GAME” (1.30.21)

1 Feb

It’s Winter. It’s cold. Snow is coming. A lot of it. And all the pandemic doctors and scientists are telling us it’s always dark just before it gets even darker! Who’s ready for a desert island? Put your hands down. I’m talking about me, not you. So I spent the show deciding which music or which versions to take to this desert island. I also spent time asking people to go to wmnr.org to become a member or make a pledge during the station’s Winter Fundraising Drive. I raised a good chunk of money and, I hope I raised hopes that some day soon we will be able to go to desert islands again. We can hope.

PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL COMFORT FOOD” (1.9.21)

10 Jan

Well, that didn’t take very long, 2021. You went from an exhilarating high on Tuesday to an abysmal low on Wednesday. In utter disbelief of  events we all were watching, I looked for a modicum of solace, peace, and even hope from a familiar source: comfort food – ice cream, mashed potatoes, peanut butter on matzoh. And this week on the show, instead of an ironic theme, I decided just to share some of my go-to musical comfort food – songs and musicians I turn to when I need them most. And, boy, I really needed them this week.

PLAYLIST FOR “MEMORY PROBLEMS” (9.29.20)

27 Sep

In the past I’ve done shows on “whistling” and “dancing.” Why did I choose those themes? Because those are two things I’ve never been able to do. In my life! I also can’t roll my tongue but, come on – if you can get two hours of songs out of that theme, you should be doing my show. In picking themes, I gotta go with what I know. So Memory Problems, songs about remembering and forgetting, was an obvious choice. I finished the show with a poem/prayer sung in Hebrew by Sophie Milman. I couldn’t let RBG’s passing go without some kind of celebration.

PLAYLIST FOR “SUCKERS AND LOSERS” (9.12.20)

13 Sep

I don’t know why I thought of this theme. Must be something in the air. So I played some of my favorite sucker/loser songs; and after half an hour, I told the audience that I’d been suckering them into thinking I was just doing another one of those ironic themes. I dedicated the rest of the show to musicians, singers, composers, and lyricist  who are/were definitely non-suckers and non-losers. Not only have they served to create, expand, and embolden the world of jazz, but also they served this country in its military forces. (I also took a moment or two to grieve the passing of Gary Peacock.)

PLAYLIST FOR “I SEE YOU; I HEAR YOU” (6.6.20)

7 Jun

I think one of the responsibilities of having a microphone every week is knowing when to shut up.
