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 “IT’S THAT TIME!” (11.6.21)

8 Nov

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. So what I’m calling a good time was had by all.

PLAYLIST FOR “SINGING THEIR PRAISES” (10.9.21)

10 Oct

Don’t you love it when Nat Cole sings one of his signature songs, for instance, Smile? Someone else sang that this week. What about any recordings of Sinatra singing Angel Eyes? Someone else sang that too, because this week great singers and musicians paid tribute to other great singers and musicians in a two-hour love fest of “Singing Their Praises.” I also tossed in a few of the originals lest we forget how original their music was.

PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2021” (7.3.21)

4 Jul

It was the last show of the season. I’m off for two months replaced by live concerts from the Tanglewood Music Festival. But I’ll be keeping busy, once again firing up my ice cream truck and coming to a neighborhood near you. Here are some of the ice cream treats I’ll be featuring this year. Oh, and I also played a lot of songs about saying goodbye.

  • Wait till you try a Pandemic parfait. I know. I served this last year but I have a new variant this year. I think it’s a real killer.
  • This year I’ll be offering the Marjorie Taylor Green Sundae. Heavy on the whipped cream, heavier on the nuts
  • Of course I’ll have that old favorite, Cookie dough for the kid in you and play dough for the actual kids. They’ll eat it anyway.
  • How about my newest flavor – I just invented it in Jan. It’s Insurrection Ice Cream. It’s two parts Pabst Blue Ribbon and one part viagra. WARNING: If you have an Insurrection that lasts more than 4 hours, better call your lawyer.
  • One of my new favorites is Arizona chocolate chip. There are exactly 723 chocolate chips in a pint – we know because someone from Arizona has re-counted them three times.
  • Want something that’s locally sourced, non-GMO, organic, and recyclable? Try a napkin from the dispenser. My ice cream is a totally different story.
  • This year’s special offer: when you buy ten q-anon cones you get a free Jewish space laser.
  • Remember: My staff is fully vaccinated, they don’t wear masks, they don’t wear gloves, and they don’t wear hairnets – maybe I shouldn’t have told you that last one

PLAYLIST FOR “MIXED MESSAGES” (5.29.21)

31 May

Webster may be the champion of spellers and Fowler the God of Grammar, but my mother was the unchallenged monarch of the mixed message, offering such gems as “Is that a new haircut? Maybe your friends won’t notice.” “That’s a funny joke. Do you think anyone will get it?” “A new job? Wonderful. I hope it’s not too much for you.” (I could go on and on and on – but I think you get the idea.) So this week I gave my audience a masterclass in Mixed Messages, passing along some of Mom’s favorite techniques and strategies with the help of some mixed message song combinations by some unequivocally great singers.

PLAYLIST FOR “BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER…KINDA…SORTA” (5.15.21)

Can two things be different and the same? I mean, they’re different but really they’re the same. What about Drake Devil Dogs & Hostess Susie-Qs? Or Ring Dings and Ding Dongs? Or Yodels and Ho-Hos?

PLAYLIST FOR “STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN” (4.17.21)

18 Apr

In addition to playing songs about Stop, Look, & Listen, I spent much of the hour asking anyone who would listen to stop and look into their wallets – I mean into their hearts and make a donation to the WMNR Spring Fundraising Drive. It wasn’t all pleading and begging. After I played Billie Holiday’s blown Take 7 of Glad To Be Unhappy, I  gave the audience the opportunity to make a couple of donations if they wanted to hear the completed version. A rewarding time was had by all – especially the radio station.

11 Apr

Intelligently, flawlessly, compassionately, thrillingly, unbelievably – these are just a few of the words no one has ever used in describing how I put this show together. Why? Well, I’m going to tell myself that it’s because people just don’t know how to use adverbs. So clearly it’s time for another lesson in Making Grammar Great Again.
