PLAYLIST FOR “WE DIG DADS” (6.17.17)

19 Jun

For Fathers Day: Songs by Dads, songs about Dads, a couple mystery vocalists, and a few rounds of the always-fun game, “Who’s Your Daddy?” And, no, this isn’t the game where Charlie Sheen takes a paternity test. I played some singers and the audience had to guess who is the singer’s father. A good time was had by all…well, okay, I can be certain of this: a good time was had by me.

PLAYLIST FOR “THE DESERT ISLAND GAME” (2.22.14)

22 Feb

Which swimsuits to take to a desert island, which books, which movies, which antiseptics — all that’s easy. But which music? Tonight was another attempt at my coming to grips with the question that tantalizes and tortures people, usually when they’ve run out of important things to think about. Some of this music I can’t do without, and some it…well, choosing is just too hard. Don’t forget: You can play this game at home, but knowing you, you’ll somehow turn it into another drinking game. I’m so proud.
