PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL COMFORT FOOD” (1.9.21)

10 Jan

Well, that didn’t take very long, 2021. You went from an exhilarating high on Tuesday to an abysmal low on Wednesday. In utter disbelief of  events we all were watching, I looked for a modicum of solace, peace, and even hope from a familiar source: comfort food – ice cream, mashed potatoes, peanut butter on matzoh. And this week on the show, instead of an ironic theme, I decided just to share some of my go-to musical comfort food – songs and musicians I turn to when I need them most. And, boy, I really needed them this week.

PLAYLIST FOR “CONTRAFACTUM – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST” (12.26.20)

27 Dec

Out with the old? That’s what I did. I played an archive show from last June as the final program for this wretched year. Let’s hope for better – and I mean the new year, certainly not my shows. Here’s what I wrote in June:

Contrafactum – it’s not just a word on Jeopardy.  Contrafactum are two different songs with the same melody but different lyrics. To jazz musicians, they are two tunes with the same chordal structure. (I tossed a few of those in for good measure – excuse the pun.) Who said educational radio is dead? Probably somebody who has listened to my show.

PLAYLIST FOR “MEMORY PROBLEMS” (9.29.20)

27 Sep

In the past I’ve done shows on “whistling” and “dancing.” Why did I choose those themes? Because those are two things I’ve never been able to do. In my life! I also can’t roll my tongue but, come on – if you can get two hours of songs out of that theme, you should be doing my show. In picking themes, I gotta go with what I know. So Memory Problems, songs about remembering and forgetting, was an obvious choice. I finished the show with a poem/prayer sung in Hebrew by Sophie Milman. I couldn’t let RBG’s passing go without some kind of celebration.

PLAYLIST FOR “LET’S TALK ABOUT ME” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (8.8.20)

9 Aug

(I took the week off and found a show from 2018. It was like finding my lost youth and innocence…and some great music. Here are my comments from that other world ago.)

Last night’s show was all about me – no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Check out the song titles and you’ll see that the show was all about “me,” not me. Although since I chose all the songs and all the singers myself, wasn’t the show really all about me? If anyone isn’t utterly confused yet, write to me. I’m sure I can fix that.

PLAYLIST FOR “SELF-DECEPTION” (5.16.20)

17 May

The question people ask me the most is “What’s the best thing about being on the radio?” (It’s also the one question people ask me I could read on the air without upsetting the FCC.) I always tell people the best thing is talking to thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people. Of course, the truth is (especially these days) I’m home, in my office, talking into a microphone, and the only thing listening to me is my computer (and, like my audience, it occasionally drops off to sleep). Okay, so maybe I should tell people the really best thing about being on the radio is having an opportunity week after week to indulge my insatiable capacity for self-deception. Fine. I said it. Happy now? But I’m not alone. All of these songs are about people deceiving and fooling themselves about something – with some variations of self-awareness tossed in there.

She gave you 50% of your chromosomes, 75% of your attitudes, 90% of your self-esteem, and 100% of the conversations you have with your therapist. Moms. Where would we be without them?

PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU” (4.18.20)

19 Apr

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.
