Though there aren’t that many reasons to sing or dance these days, just to make certain we still remember what they look and sound like, I played a couple of hours of “dance” song and great singers. Now that’s my idea of dancing with the stars!

Week after week after week, for the last ten years, this show has been about three things: me, myself, and I. Sure, I’ve talked now and then about the audience and me being a team – but I’ve recently been reminded that there’s no “I” in team. And you can’t spell Turntable without “U”. So this week all of the music was dedicated and focussed on YOU. I figure after sucking up to the audience for two hours in ten years, things can get back to normal next week.
