PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2019 – SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” (6.29.19)

30 Jun

Turntable For One is on hiatus until August 31st. So, as I always do on the final program, I gave out summer listening assignments for July and August. Plus, as I also always do, I talked about the ice cream treats I’ll be serving on my summer job on a wandering ice cream truck.

On the menu this year: 20 different ice creams in one bowl. Last year I called it the Kitchen Sink sundae; this year: the Democratic debate sundae.

Last year I sold the classic orange sherbet treat, the skyrocket. This year I’m testing something new and explosive: Little Skyrocket Man.

How about a Polar Icecap sundae? (Which is really just a glass of warm water.)

New this year: the Bill Barr Milkshake – you can order it but it will never show up.

I’m trying out a new combination of mint and peach ice creams – I’m hoping peach-mint really catches on this summer.

Don’t forget about The Infrastructure Sundae – a combination of Rocky Road ice cream and crumbled bridge mix.

A green reminder: When you’re done with your ice cream, pass your spoon on to the next customer. (Hey – either you believe in recycling or you don’t!)

PLAYLIST FOR “GROUNDHOG DAY!” (2.2.19)

2 Feb

Explain to me again why we created a holiday to honor an ugly, destructive rodent and a misguided superstition while continuing to discredit the value of scientific facts in our lives? I based my Groundhog Day celebration on the classic movie and this rule: If you hear a song once this week, you’re going to hear it at least twice. (Okay, I did start the show with one Groundhog Day song.)

PLAYLIST FOR ” A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN” (1.12.19)

13 Jan

Turntable For One is all about problems – certainly not solving them, more like creating them, exacerbating them, and at the very least exploiting them. So this week I tackled the problem of the government shutdown. What did I do? I played music, of course, but I also dedicated the program to the 800,000 federal employees who have gone from figuring out how to live paycheck to paycheck to how to live no paycheck to no paycheck. The President said he didn’t want to call this a shutdown. I agree. How about travesty?

The year in music didn’t start on a happy note. Kellye Gray, a unique and passionate singer died suddenly.

(I’d say it was like preaching to the choir, but I don’t think any choirs listen to my show.)
