PLAYLIST FOR “WINNING SINGERS-LOSING SONGS” (4.24.21)

25 Apr

It’s time for the Oscars again. And, yes, you can fault the Oscars for being over-the-top – over the top egos, over the top vanity, over the top self-adulation. On the other hand, what do people who don’t win usually say? “It’s an honor just to be nominated.” And I can’t remember anyone at the Oscars insisting the voting was rigged or asking for a recount. I’m just saying… So in honor of the Academy Awards, I brought back a longtime Turntable for One tradition, listening to some wonderful Oscar nominated songs. Not the winners! Instead I presented a couple of hours of winning singers singing Oscar losing songs.

PLAYLIST FOR “STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN” (4.17.21)

18 Apr

In addition to playing songs about Stop, Look, & Listen, I spent much of the hour asking anyone who would listen to stop and look into their wallets – I mean into their hearts and make a donation to the WMNR Spring Fundraising Drive. It wasn’t all pleading and begging. After I played Billie Holiday’s blown Take 7 of Glad To Be Unhappy, I  gave the audience the opportunity to make a couple of donations if they wanted to hear the completed version. A rewarding time was had by all – especially the radio station.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE ADVERB” (4.10.21)

11 Apr

Intelligently, flawlessly, compassionately, thrillingly, unbelievably – these are just a few of the words no one has ever used in describing how I put this show together. Why? Well, I’m going to tell myself that it’s because people just don’t know how to use adverbs. So clearly it’s time for another lesson in Making Grammar Great Again. That’s why I presented proudly, defiantly, fearlessly, and oh so timely, a musical tribute to Adverbs this week.

PLAYLIST FOR “REDUX” (3.20.21)

21 Mar

I divided the show into two parts this week, one part the traditional Turntable For One party for St. Patrick’s Day, replete with Irish singers and musicians, Irish-American singers and musicians, and the most important Turntable for One tradition of all: me eating a bowl of Lucky Charms on the air. To celebrate the fact that this was my first live show from the station in a long, long while, in the second part of the show I shared some of the music that helped get me through the last 12 months of sheltering in place. So nice to be back, like Spring flowers, green grass, and seasonal allergies.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNCERTAINTY” (3.6.21)

                                                                                                                                                                   And sorry I could not travel both

                                                                                                                                                                   And be one traveler, long I stood

                                                                                                                                                                  And looked down one as far as I could. 

Okay, everyone finds this poem iconic and inspiring. Really? Do you know where these roads go? I don’t. Do you know if there are bears or poison ivy or rest stops? I don’t. So how can you be so certain you’re making a good decision and not a bad mistake? You can’t! You can’t be certain and that’s about the only thing you can be certain of. Especially when I spent two hours presenting A Musical Tribute To Uncertainty. (Did everyone love it? Well, I’m not entirely certain about that…)

PLAYLIST FOR “VIOLENCE WEEK” – A SHOW FROM THE ARCHIVES (2.27.21)

1 Mar

I spent the week wandering through the Turntable For One archives and found this show from Nov. 2019. It certainly made me nostalgic for doing a live show. Sigh… This is how I introduced the playlist back then:

If you ask me – and I’m going to pretend that you have – nothing stirs the heart and lifts our spirits like the men and women who, through practice and persistence, have mastered the art of violence — hey, wait a minute. That’s not what I’m typing! How do I turn off auto-fill? I mean VIOLINS! All of the music this week features a violin or a string section, or a jazz or classical violinist, plus a couple singers who also play violin. All in all, it was a very satisfying auditory discussion of string theory.

PLAYLIST FOR “UNIMPEACHABLE LOVE SONGS” (2.13.21)

14 Feb

After doing about a dozen Valentine’s Day shows over the years, I needed something new for this year’s theme. Out of the blue this theme came to me. I don’t know why I thought of it. The show was a mix of love songs, plus a few Valentine gifts to myself and a number of song dedications from the audience. In the end, I believe I acquitted myself well. And, acquittal is all the matters, right?
