PLAYLIST FOR “YOU BE THE JUDGE” (12.2.17)

5 Dec

Well, I’m finally back from being under the weather…I guess that means that now I’m over the weather. Last Saturday night, I let the audience play producer in the privacy of their own homes. I played two versions of the same song and listeners could decide for themselves which was the better singer, or interpretation, or arrangement. Luckily for me, no one got so good at the process that they asked to take over my time slot. Phew.

PLAYLIST FOR “NAME-DROPPING” (11.4.17)

5 Nov

I spent the evening naming names – not in a Robert Mueller way, but by playing songs that have at least one reference to a real person.  Some name-drop many more than one person and others have spontaneous ad-lib shout-outs.
