PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S THAT TIME!” (11.6.21)

8 Nov

Something unusual and special happened this weekend. No, my show wasn’t organized and coherent. I said, unusual and special, I didn’t say anything about a miracle. If you’ve been examining or reexamining your life, you’ve probably thought. “Wouldn’t it be great if I could turn back the clock?” Well, this was  your night! The end of Daylight Saving Time.  Time to Fall behind and turn the clocks back an hour. So as what I’m calling a public service, I offered some reminders about turning back the clocks and a few suggestions for what to do with that extra hour. So what I’m calling a good time was had by all.

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2021”

1 Nov

It’s that time again, time when ghastly, ghostly white apparitions appear. The living dead, their eyes open but unseeing, their mouths moving but they say nothing. I know, I just described the U.S. Senate, but that’s not what the show was about this week. I served up a bobbing bucket full of great ghoulish songs at the annual Turntable for One Halloween party! And, best of all, I got to play my favorite game. When Trick Or Treaters came to the door, I got to guess who they were dressed up to be and give them an appropriate song. (Professional tip: This also saves a ton of money on candy.)

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNCERTAINTY” (3.6.21)

7 Mar

                                                                                                                                                                    Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken” 

                                                                                                                                                                   Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, 

                                                                                                                                                                   And sorry I could not travel both

                                                                                                                                                                   And be one traveler, long I stood

                                                                                                                                                                  And looked down one as far as I could. 

Okay, everyone finds this poem iconic and inspiring. Really? Do you know where these roads go? I don’t. Do you know if there are bears or poison ivy or rest stops? I don’t. So how can you be so certain you’re making a good decision and not a bad mistake? You can’t! You can’t be certain and that’s about the only thing you can be certain of. Especially when I spent two hours presenting A Musical Tribute To Uncertainty. (Did everyone love it? Well, I’m not entirely certain about that…)

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY – 2020” (10.31.20)

1 Nov

I did a live show this week if only to see if I remembered how to turn on the mic (though I’m sure there were those in the audience hoping I’d forgotten how). But my annual Halloween party is one of my favorite shows of the year because Trick or Treaters always come to the door and I get to guess their costumes and then pass out an appropriate song instead of candy. I ended the show with a reminder about setting their clocks back an hour Saturday night (hoping we don’t turn the clocks back a couple decades on Tuesday).
