PLAYLIST FOR “FUN WITH PHOBIAS” (6.4.22)

6 Jun

We all have them. Maybe we call them quirks or superstitions. Let’s call them by their real names – fears and phobias. Fear of Heights – it’s called Acrophobia.  Dentrophobia – fear of Dentists. Even I have a phobia: The Fear of Howie Mandel suddenly showing up at my door. I’m sure there’s a name of that but I haven’t found it yet. Most of our phobias are manageable and many are actually curable. Here’s my question: are they exploitable, by which I mean could I get two hours of music out of them? Songs about phobias, songs to help overcome phobias – two hours of immersion therapy in swing.

PLAYLIST FOR “LAUGHING AT LIFE”-AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (2.5.22)

6 Feb

A show from the archives, this time from back in 2017, which explains why you can hear the last vestiges of hope in my voice. Here’s how I introduced the show back then…

It’s true that smiling requires more muscles than frowning, which must be why smiling always tires me so quickly. Still, considering all that we know and fear about the world today, I thought it was worth spending a couple hours focusing on laughing and smiling. Okay, I didn’t feel any better at the end of the program, but at least I got to share some great songs and singers and some of my favorite laughs.

PLAYLIST FOR “LYRICS CAME LATER” (11.20.21)

21 Nov

In the beginning was the Word. Okay, fine. But not this week. Not on this show. Almost everything I played started out as an instrumental and the lyrics came later. To bring things back to reality, I ended with a melody played so beautifully that I don’t think it really needed the lyrics added later and, finally, with a lyric that Johnny Mercer wrote but didn’t live long enough to set to music.

PLAYLIST FOR “MIXED MESSAGES” (5.29.21)

31 May

Webster may be the champion of spellers and Fowler the God of Grammar, but my mother was the unchallenged monarch of the mixed message, offering such gems as “Is that a new haircut? Maybe your friends won’t notice.” “That’s a funny joke. Do you think anyone will get it?” “A new job? Wonderful. I hope it’s not too much for you.” (I could go on and on and on – but I think you get the idea.) So this week I gave my audience a masterclass in Mixed Messages, passing along some of Mom’s favorite techniques and strategies with the help of some mixed message song combinations by some unequivocally great singers.

PLAYLIST FOR “11TH ANNUAL MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR” (11.28.20)

29 Nov

Definitely one of my favorite shows every year because it gives me a chance to highlight music I’m thankful for and invite other WMNR broadcasters (B) and some of my favorite singers (S) to talk about and introduce music that’s important to them. Plus, because this show always falls near my birthday, it’s also “family night” at Turntable For One. So my wife and son join me at the radio station to offer their banter and musical selections. This year was different. My wife, Megan, was in the studio with me; our son, Cody, whom we saw at Thanksgiving via FaceTime (just like so many families this year), reported in from the safety of his NYC apartment. Stay well. Stay safe. Everyone.

22 Nov

Many people are choosing not to gather for Thanksgiving this year and choosing instead to be safe and smart. (It’s only for one year.)

This is a show from last March. At that time Joe Biden was an ascendent candidate and the man of the moment. Ditto for this past week, so I played the show again. If you don’t think that Biden is the man of the moment, feel free to tell yourself that the show is dedicated to Joe DiMaggio, or Jo March, or Joseph K or just a cup of joe. To give an appearance of fairness back then, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too. I kept those in. Back with a new show next week.
