PLAYLIST FOR “SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN” (9.23.17)

24 Sep

I’ve been watching with horror the images of the millions of people whose only fault was being in the path of Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria. Will we ever be able to think about rain benignly again the way so many popular song writers have? To distract myself (the largest circle on my personal Venn diagram with a very small intersection with Reality), I spent a couple of hours living in the past.

PLAYLIST FOR “BREAKING NEWS” (4.11.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzvocalists #prx

13 Apr

Every story on the cable news channels is presented as BREAKING NEWS! The hype and hyperbole were driving me crazy…until I remembered why they’re doing it – to keep the audience interested, tuned in, and awake. Hey, that’s exactly what I want, too. So I presented every song this week as a BREAKING NEWS story, everything from breaking news about Justin Bieber (“I Won’t Grow Up”) to a home invasion (“The Three Bears”) to a new statement from Edward Snowden to America (“You’d Be So Nice To Come Home to”) to the discovery of the Fountain Of Youth (“Young At Heart”). Maybe I didn’t get all the stories right, but isn’t that the hallmark of BREAKING NEWS: get it fast, not right?
