PLAYLIST FOR “COME ON, GET HAPPY!” (6.27.20)

28 Jun

Recent studies show that more Americans are more unhappy about more things than they have been in more than 50 years. This could mean two things: people are actually and finally coming to their senses (we can hope); or people have been waiting for me to do a show about “happy” music. (I never said I was devoid of self-delusion, did I?)

26 Apr

Anybody else having bad dreams these nights? So, I’ve not been getting much sleep, but I did get a theme for this week’s show – songs about dreams and a few songs about things to dream about. Also I gave a special shout-out to Georgia for opening up its beauty salons, bowling alleys, restaurants, and tattoo parlors. I celebrated the occasion with a special Turntable For One contest: What should the tattoo say on the first person to get a new tattoo in GA. My suggestion? Do Not Resuscitate.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” (3.07.20)

8 Mar

I planned this show months and months ago, just a show featuring some of my favorite songs, singers, and musicians all named Joe. At the time I thought Joe Biden was toast, not someone voters months later would be toasting. Okay, times are different now, but no way I’m throwing away a good idea – especially since they are coming with less and less frequency. To give an appearance of fairness, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too.

PLAYLIST FOR “THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS” (2.1.20)

3 Feb

I’ve tried for months to do this theme, but something horrible would happen – in a mall, or a night club, or, dear God, another school. So, of course, out of decency I deferred. Besides, after a tragedy, that time is always reserved for politicians to offer their “thoughts and prayers” in lieu of doing anything. I thought I was safe this week, maybe because it was the night before the Super Bowl, or the night before Groundhog Day, or maybe because America really needs a hug this week, I offered some songs about thoughts and prayers.

This is one of my favorite shows every year, a chance to highlight music I’m thankful for and invite other WMNR broadcasters (B) and some of my favorite singers to talk about and introduce music that’s important to them.

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.

This week’s show was ripped from the headlines with only superficial wounds as a result. Day after day we find out there are things we do know and things we don’t know.

PLAYLIST FOR ” A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN” (1.12.19)

13 Jan

Turntable For One is all about problems – certainly not solving them, more like creating them, exacerbating them, and at the very least exploiting them. So this week I tackled the problem of the government shutdown. What did I do? I played music, of course, but I also dedicated the program to the 800,000 federal employees who have gone from figuring out how to live paycheck to paycheck to how to live no paycheck to no paycheck. The President said he didn’t want to call this a shutdown. I agree. How about travesty?
