PLAYLIST FOR “WE DIG DADS” (6.17.17)

19 Jun

For Fathers Day: Songs by Dads, songs about Dads, a couple mystery vocalists, and a few rounds of the always-fun game, “Who’s Your Daddy?” And, no, this isn’t the game where Charlie Sheen takes a paternity test. I played some singers and the audience had to guess who is the singer’s father. A good time was had by all…well, okay, I can be certain of this: a good time was had by me.

PLAYLIST FOR “DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO” RULES TO LIVE BY IN 2014 (1.4.14)

4 Jan

Most shows and hosts try give good advice, especially at this time of year. The best shows and hosts even try to model the behavior and rules they suggest. I do things differently and I think it’s a better system, one that’s much easier on me and, probably, just as effective (if not more) for you. Here are the songs that best illustrate things I won’t be doing in the new year, but you should.
