PLAYLIST FOR “POSITIVE VIBES” (12.14.20)

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 “MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO LOW SELF-ESTEEM” & “MUSICAL MASH-UPS” (3.26.16)

26 Mar

I pulled a couple shows from the archives for everyone’s listening pleasure this week. I’ll be back live next Saturday night!

A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO LOW SELF-ESTEEM

I tried to play the best songs I could think of for this theme, but I probably left out all the really good ones. Crap. I knew I was going to screw it up. Why did I think I could do this right? What was I thinking?

Uh-Oh. Maybe I’ve been thinking about Low Self-Esteem a little too long this week.

MUSICAL MASH-UPS

Can I do two things at once? Rub my head and pat my stomach? It’s more fun if someone does that for me. Walk and chew gum? Ok, so I had to give up chewing gum. Sing two songs at once? Maybe I can’t do that, but these guys can and did this week on Turntable For One.
