PLAYLIST FOR “I SEE YOU; I HEAR YOU” (6.6.20)

7 Jun

I think one of the responsibilities of having a microphone every week is knowing when to shut up. I did that (for the most part) this week and let singers and songwriters who for so many years have seen and heard with perception and then written with eloquent honesty about this painful struggle playing out once again across America.

PLAYLIST FOR “SELF-DECEPTION” (5.16.20)

17 May

The question people ask me the most is “What’s the best thing about being on the radio?” (It’s also the one question people ask me I could read on the air without upsetting the FCC.) I always tell people the best thing is talking to thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people. Of course, the truth is (especially these days) I’m home, in my office, talking into a microphone, and the only thing listening to me is my computer (and, like my audience, it occasionally drops off to sleep). Okay, so maybe I should tell people the really best thing about being on the radio is having an opportunity week after week to indulge my insatiable capacity for self-deception. Fine. I said it. Happy now? But I’m not alone. All of these songs are about people deceiving and fooling themselves about something – with some variations of self-awareness tossed in there.

PLAYLIST FOR “ALL TALK ALL THE TIME” (11.23.19)

24 Nov

We’ve been hearing a lot of talk lately – opening statements, closing statements, testimony, rebuttals, colloquies, points of order (even when there didn’t seem to be any point nor any discernible order). So in the best and, I might add, the most predictable Turntable For One tradition, I tried to exploit and exacerbate the situation with lots of songs about talking, telling, saying, and opining. And everyone had a good time…at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2019” (10.26.19)

My Tenth Annual Halloween party with more treats than tricks. I got to play my favorite haunting melodies with  a number of them sung by some of my favorite ghosts.

PLAYLIST FOR “SOMETHING GOOD MIGHT HAPPEN” (6.8.19)

9 Jun

I’m have always been a “the-glass-is-half-empty” kind of guy. (I also worry who’s been drinking from that glass.) Why? Growing up, my family had a clear and distinct world view: “Something bad might happen.” So this week I challenged – no, I dared myself to look through the eyes of people who actually (and inexplicably) see the world positively. I played song after song about things possibly going right and how to make that happen. Happily I got through it but only by repeating my daily, personal affirmation: “What on earth were you thinking?”

PLAYLIST FOR “LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN THE MAILBOX!” (5.25.19)

27 May

Instead of a theme, instead of featuring the oft-heard Turntable For One regulars – Sinatra, Tony, Carmen, Ella, Nina, etc. – I put Saturday’s show together with only some of the new music I received in the mail (both physical and virtual) in just the past two weeks. I generously didn’t go into the other things I find in my mail – things like memorial headstone catalogs and threatening letters from Social Security since they found out that I am neither social nor secure. Also: here’s a shout out to all of the singers and musicians listed below – young and old – and to their promoters; without them my audience and I would just have to stare at each other for two hours, and I think we know who would lose that staring contest.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO CAFFEINE” (9.29.18)

30 Sep

September 29th was National Coffee Day and I celebrated with songs about coffee or tea – some of them peripherally, I confess. I also tossed in a few highly-caffeinated performances and songs. If caffeine songs don’t work, I may have to consider paying my audience to stay awake.
