PLAYLIST FOR “12TH ANNUAL ‘MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR’ SHOW” (11/27/21)

29 Nov

Definitely one of my favorite shows every year because it gives me a chance to highlight music I’m thankful for and to salute some of my musical heroes. This year: Tony Bennett, Stephen Sondheim, and Dave Frishberg. I also invite other WMNR broadcasters (B) and some of my favorite singers (S) to give a Thanksgiving greeting, talk about and then introduce music that’s important to them. And as if that weren’t enough, because this show always falls near my birthday (this year exactly on my birthday!), it’s also “family night” at Turntable For One when my wife and son join me at the radio station to offer their banter, eye rolls, and musical selections. This year my wife, Megan, was in the studio and introduced a song written by our son, Cody and expressed our grief at the loss of Sondheim. This year our son reported in from Columbus, Ohio, his current stop as he music directs and conducts the national tour of Hadestown.
