PLAYLIST FOR “THE TRUTH ABOUT MEN” (10.6.18)

7 Oct

Since we learned this week – much to my surprise – that it’s a scary time for men and that men are the true victims here, I had to do something to support all these poor unfortunate men, victims of an unfair society that never gives them any power nor respect. But what could I do being just a simple and largely ignored radio host? How about a testosterone-filled evening of man-splaining, man-rationalizing, and man-boasting songs, plus beer, of course, with an occasional view from a woman’s perspective? Here’s hoping for a better world…what are the chances?

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.

Most of these songs are losers, Oscar losers, that is.  (Though none of the singers and musicians are.)

PLAYLIST FOR “HEARTFELT, HEARTLESS, & HEARTBROKEN: SONGS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY (2.13.16) #jazzradio

In last Wednesday’s hint, I asked what was the only thing I haven’t been called during the 5 1/2 year run of Turntable For One. Thanks for all of the suggestions (most of which were unprintable).
