PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNREALITY – REALLY!” (5.14.22)

15 May

Impossible! It just can’t be! Have you lost touch with reality? I know. It sounds like my last IRS audit. Or maybe Wolf Blitzer’s performance review. Nope. These are things people have been saying about Turntable For One for years. And this week, they were right. I paid tribute to all the things and ways people embrace, admire, and seek Unreality. Is the last song Reality or Unreality? I think that’s going to depend very much on what we all do in the near future.

PLAYLIST FOR “SPRING BREAK” (3.26.22)

27 Mar

I desperately need a break. I desperately need something to celebrate. I tried to combine the two with a tribute to Spring. But not without first opening the show with another Ukrainian jazz artist. I’m watching the world fall apart but from a distance. Living in Kyiv, Alina’s view is terrifyingly closer. Yet she tells me she and her family are safe and trying to stay positive. Glory to Ukraine!

PLAYLIST FOR “ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY” – AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (3.12.22)

13 Mar

I couldn’t make it to the station this week, but did that mean no St. Patrick’s Day party this year? Nope. I dug this show from 2019 out of the archives. This is what I wrote about the show back then:

 

 

It’s been a Turntable For One St. Patrick’s Day tradition for me to play some jazz singers from Ireland, a few Irish-American (or at least half-Irish-American) singers and musicians, and – always a highlight – for me to eat some traditional Irish food on the air – which, of course, means  a bowl of Lucky Charms. And, as if hearing me struggle and choke wasn’t incentive enough, I made this year’s party a celebration of the songs of Jimmy McHugh, the wonderful Irish-American composer.

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.

PLAYLIST FOR “YOU BE THE JUDGE” (12.2.17)

Well, I’m finally back from being under the weather…I guess that means that now I’m over the weather. Last Saturday night, I let the audience play producer in the privacy of their own homes. I played two versions of the same song and listeners could decide for themselves which was the better singer, or interpretation, or arrangement. Luckily for me, no one got so good at the process that they asked to take over my time slot. Phew.

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.
