PLAYLIST FOR “MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR” (11.25.17)

27 Nov

Time for the 8th Annual Music To Be Thankful For show, featuring music I’m thankful for and selections from some of the other broadcasters at WMNR, plus messages from three of the vocalists I admire most. And because this show always falls around my birthday, it was also the 8th Annual Family Night at Turntable For One with my wife and my son joining in.

PLAYLIST FOR “HEARTFELT, HEARTLESS, & HEARTBROKEN: SONGS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY (2.13.16) #jazzradio

14 Feb

In last Wednesday’s hint, I asked what was the only thing I haven’t been called during the 5 1/2 year run of Turntable For One. Thanks for all of the suggestions (most of which were unprintable). Of course, calling me these things immediately disqualifies your answer from the quiz. The answer I was thinking of was “all heart.” And as you peruse the playlist, I think you’ll see that I’ve rectified that situation. Have you ever seen a radio program with more heart?

PLAYLIST FOR “COPYCATS” (10.11.14)

13 Oct

I hope my hint this week was sufficiently confusing…“I’ll play every song at least twice but I won’t play any song more than once.” All I meant was I’ll play two different songs with the same song title. I was surprised at how many there are, and how many I didn’t know before last week. How about you?
