PLAYLIST FOR “POSITIVE VIBES” (12.14.20)

15 Nov

I tried a little experiment this week – an experiment in terror for me, that is. Could I send out nothing but positive vibes and eschew my inherent pessimism for an entire two hours? It seems to me the times demand this kind of sacrifice and I went for it with a collection of positive songs, positive singers, positive people (a mini-tribute to Fred Rogers), and a few of my favorite oh-so-positive vibes players – messers Gibbs, Wolfe, and Jackson. And for an extra treat – maybe for me only – I did the show live and in person at the station, something that’s not going to happen again until the infection rates really start to dive.

PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY – 2020” (10.31.20)

1 Nov

I did a live show this week if only to see if I remembered how to turn on the mic (though I’m sure there were those in the audience hoping I’d forgotten how). But my annual Halloween party is one of my favorite shows of the year because Trick or Treaters always come to the door and I get to guess their costumes and then pass out an appropriate song instead of candy. I ended the show with a reminder about setting their clocks back an hour Saturday night (hoping we don’t turn the clocks back a couple decades on Tuesday).

11 Oct

Saturday was World Mental Health Day. So, of course, I wanted to play two hours of positive, motivating, and encouraging songs. JUST KIDDING!! Doing that would have made me part of the solution, not part of the problem. That’s not the way I roll. In addition to some favorite songs about the questionable mental state of the world, I also played songs about several of the stressors indicating less than optimum mental health. Okay, yes, it was just another show about me.

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 “SUCKERS AND LOSERS” (9.12.20)

13 Sep

I don’t know why I thought of this theme. Must be something in the air. So I played some of my favorite sucker/loser songs; and after half an hour, I told the audience that I’d been suckering them into thinking I was just doing another one of those ironic themes. I dedicated the rest of the show to musicians, singers, composers, and lyricist  who are/were definitely non-suckers and non-losers. Not only have they served to create, expand, and embolden the world of jazz, but also they served this country in its military forces. (I also took a moment or two to grieve the passing of Gary Peacock.)

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.
