PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2022” (7.2.22)

3 Jul

The last show of the season, so for the first hour I handed out summer listening assignments and for the second hour said goodbye. I also told the audience about my summer job. Yes for the 12th summer in a row, I’ll be lurking in people’s neighborhoods. Not in a raincoat! In an ice cream truck. Here are some of the treats I’ll be offering this year:

Ice Cream Treats 2022

Johnny Depp/Amber Herd sundae. It doesn’t come in a cone or a cup. It’s just a giant scoop of Chocolate ice cream — But be careful not to dump it in the bed.

Wordle Popsicle — If you can guess the flavor in 6 tries, it’s free!

Something new: The Joe Biden Malarkey Malted  — it’s like his sainted mother always said… You can fool some of the people some of the time and that’s usually sufficient.

I’ll be featuring a huge new Banana Split  — Forty scoops of ice cream and 22 bananas.  It’s Merrick Garland’s favorite which means I bet you’ll never get to the bottom of it.  

Of course I have Rainbow Sherbet in celebration of Pride Month…

You know what absolutely vanished off my shelves this year?  The Baby formula milkshake —  Better luck next year.

Want to get in on the ground floor of a great deal?  Try my Cryptocurrency cone – a bargain at $400.  Of course by 2:00 p.m. it’ll be $1500 — and by 3:30 it’s down to $42 bucks.  Don’t forget: with every crypto cone you get a compete set of the emperor’s new clothes. 

By the way, due to supply chain issues none of the ice cream cones actually come with cones

Last but not least…

A special sundae this year — it’s my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae. If you’re a guy  you can choose any of my 48 flavors. If you’re a woman, you don’t get a choice. So order my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae and enjoy a trip back to the 18th century!

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 “SPRING BREAK” (3.26.22)

27 Mar

I desperately need a break. I desperately need something to celebrate. I tried to combine the two with a tribute to Spring. But not without first opening the show with another Ukrainian jazz artist.

8 Nov

Something unusual and special happened this weekend. No, my show wasn’t organized and coherent. I said, unusual and special, I didn’t say anything about a miracle. If you’ve been examining or reexamining your life, you’ve probably thought. “Wouldn’t it be great if I could turn back the clock?” Well, this was  your night! The end of Daylight Saving Time.  Time to Fall behind and turn the clocks back an hour. So as what I’m calling a public service, I offered some reminders about turning back the clocks and a few suggestions for what to do with that extra hour.

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2021”

1 Nov

It’s that time again, time when ghastly, ghostly white apparitions appear. The living dead, their eyes open but unseeing, their mouths moving but they say nothing. I know, I just described the U.S. Senate, but that’s not what the show was about this week. I served up a bobbing bucket full of great ghoulish songs at the annual Turntable for One Halloween party! And, best of all, I got to play my favorite game. When Trick Or Treaters came to the door, I got to guess who they were dressed up to be and give them an appropriate song. (Professional tip: This also saves a ton of money on candy.)

PLAYLIST FOR “WILLPOWER VS WON’T-POWER” (6.5.21)

6 Jun

What does it take to lose weight? Willpower. Stop biting your nails? Willpower. What does it take to stop watching America’s Got Talent? Half a brain – but that’s a different issue. Getting back on topic: what does it take to give up smoking? Again, Willpower. So let me get this straight: Willpower is forcing yourself not to do something. Wouldn’t it make more sense to call it Won’t-power?  But no – everyone gives Willpower all the praise and approbation. Well, not  this week! I think Won’t is just as important to songwriters as Will – maybe more important. I tried to prove that with songs about Will and Won’t. I won’t tell you which side won; but I will tell you the music definitely won.

2 Apr

I’m tired of cabin fever and Covid fever and hay fever. Time to focus on what’s really bugging me these days: Spring Fever.

PLAYLIST FOR “VIOLENCE WEEK” – A SHOW FROM THE ARCHIVES (2.27.21)

1 Mar

I spent the week wandering through the Turntable For One archives and found this show from Nov. 2019. It certainly made me nostalgic for doing a live show. Sigh… This is how I introduced the playlist back then:

If you ask me – and I’m going to pretend that you have – nothing stirs the heart and lifts our spirits like the men and women who, through practice and persistence, have mastered the art of violence — hey, wait a minute. That’s not what I’m typing! How do I turn off auto-fill? I mean VIOLINS! All of the music this week features a violin or a string section, or a jazz or classical violinist, plus a couple singers who also play violin. All in all, it was a very satisfying auditory discussion of string theory.  

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE  /  Aaron Weinstein  /  “3×3”

PLAYLIST FOR “NEW SEASON’S GREETINGS” (12.12.20)

13 Dec

I’ve gotten a ton of new Christmas music and since we all can use anything to raise our spirits these days, I decided to focus this week on this new music – plus an extra-early Christmas present, a single from Freda Payne’s upcoming CD. She’s 78, Johnny Mathis is 85 and they’re both still singing like this. I get out breath pouring my bowl of cereal. This coming week will be the Annual Turntable For One Christmas Party. Everyone’s invited.
