PLAYLIST FOR “LET’S CELEBRATE RECORD STORE DAY!! (4.21.12)

We kicked it old school last night – no CDs and no prepared playlist or notes. Instead I pulled a couple dozen old vinyl albums and played what I felt like at the moment. Twice the fun?

Thanks for joining me for our St. Patrick’s Day revelry, featuring a stew of Irish songs, Irish singers, and even a few Irish jazz singers we don’t hear often over here. Though my favorite part of the show was eating an entire bowl of Lucky Charms.

19 Feb

Tonight’s Turntable for One, a lesson in the proper use of the preposition (not to be confused with the improper use of the proposition)  was another in our continuing educational series, “No Listener Left Behind.” In weeks to come, don’t miss invaluable lectures on recognizing a direct object, preferably before you hit it and examples of the passive voice in ventriloquism. You’ve been warned.
