PLAYLIST FOR “THE HEART WANTS WHAT IT WANTS” (5.6.17)

6 May

I believe human beings have one determinative principle – although principle seems to be a word that’s fallen from grace and practice these days. “The Heart Wants What It Wants” – Doesn’t that explain why people choose their partners, their meals, their cars, their politicians, and in the case of one of this week’s mystery vocalists, why he married his step-daughter. Emily Dickinson gave that phrase to the world in a letter.  I wonder if she would be happy about that today. I was happy about these songs for this week’s theme.

PLAYLIST FOR “TEACHING OLD DOGS NEW TRICKS?” (9.27.14)

28 Sep

I know that you depend on Turntable For One to come up with easy answers to hard questions, the questions no one is asking (probably for lack of interest). And I don’t think the show has ever failed you, at least, not on that score. So last night, I challenged the old saw, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Of course, the easy way to prove or disprove this would have been to bring an old dog into the studio and spend my hour of air time trying to teach it a new trick. However I scoff at the easy way, I eschew the conventional, and, so, instead, I played an hour of songs or singers related to the topic. The results may not have been conclusive, but they sure were swinging.
