PLAYLISTS FOR “SPEED DATING” AND “NIGHT OF THE LIVING INSOMNIACS” (ARCHIVE SHOWS) (12.3.16)

5 Dec

Didn’t do a live show this week, but found a couple of gems hidden in the archives.

First – Musical Speed Dating,  or as I think of it: Match.com meets Musical Chairs! 30 singers in 60 minutes – you do the math.  No other radio program would attempt to do this,  probably for good reasons.

  • SIGNING OFF  /  Helen Merrill  /  A Date With The Blues”

Second: Night Of The Living Insomnaics! Ok, let’s dispense with the jokes about how can I have insomnia when I’m always putting audiences to sleep. That makes me yawn, okay? But not because I’m tired. Still, pretty impressive how many great singers and songs have dealt with the subject.

PLAYLIST FOR “HEARTFELT, HEARTLESS, & HEARTBROKEN: SONGS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY (2.13.16) #jazzradio

14 Feb

In last Wednesday’s hint, I asked what was the only thing I haven’t been called during the 5 1/2 year run of Turntable For One. Thanks for all of the suggestions (most of which were unprintable). Of course, calling me these things immediately disqualifies your answer from the quiz. The answer I was thinking of was “all heart.” And as you peruse the playlist, I think you’ll see that I’ve rectified that situation. Have you ever seen a radio program with more heart?

PLAYLIST FOR “GHOSTS AND GOBLINS AND WITCHES AND SPELLS” (10.27.12)

29 Oct

Don’t you love Halloween traditions? Like songs about ghosts and witches and spells; and hurricanes that change the geography of the East Coast and turn off the electricity for at least a week. I prefer the tradition of killing people with a tossed handful of flour rather than with hurricanes. Let’s cancel this modern-day tradition for next year, okay?

Don’t know for certain if there will be a live show this coming Saturday. Watch this space for updates.
