PLAYLIST FOR “FOOD & DRINK WEEK” (11.20.20)

22 Nov

Many people are choosing not to gather for Thanksgiving this year and choosing instead to be safe and smart. (It’s only for one year.) So I thought I’d celebrate with some delicious songs about food and drink along with some food for thought from Nina Simone and some food for the soul from Imelda May with Jeff Goldblum. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Be sure to tune in next week for a very special show, the 11th Annual Turntable For One Music To Be Thankful For show.

PLAYLISTS FOR “SPEED DATING” AND “NIGHT OF THE LIVING INSOMNIACS” (ARCHIVE SHOWS) (12.3.16)

5 Dec

Didn’t do a live show this week, but found a couple of gems hidden in the archives.

First – Musical Speed Dating,  or as I think of it: Match.com meets Musical Chairs! 30 singers in 60 minutes – you do the math.  No other radio program would attempt to do this,  probably for good reasons.  

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • A FOGGY DAY  /  Sarah Vaughan  /  “Live In Japan”
  • I MARRIED AN ANGEL  /  Sammy Davis Jr.  /  “The Shelter Of Your Arms”

  • JUST FRIENDS  /  Tony Bennett  /  ˆ”Tony Sings For Two”
  • MY KIND OF LOVE  /  Patti Page  /  “In The Land Of Hi-Fi”
  • SHOULD I  /  Frank Sinatra  /  “Sinatra’s Swingin’ Session”
  • FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION  /  Frank Sinatra Jr.  /   I”As I Remember It”
  • MOONLIGHT SAVINGS TIME  /  Blossom Dearie  /  “Once Upon A Summertime”
  • SCARS  /  Ian Shaw  /  “A Ghost In Every Bar”
  • YOU’RE GETTING TO BE A HABIT WITH ME  /  Delicatessen  /  “Jazz+Bossa”
  • I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR YOU  /  Nat Cole  /  “Tell Me All About Yourself”
  • AVALON  /  Natalie Cole  /  “Unforgettable”
  •  FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEE  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Bobby McFerrin  /  “Hush”

  • THE UNCERTAINTY OF A POET  /  Kurt Elling  /  “Man In The Air”
  • SMILE  /  Rickie Lee Jones  /  “It’s Like This”
  • YOU’RE EVERYTHING BUT MINE  /  Joe Williams  /  “Illuminated”

  •  NOBODY’S HEART BELONGS TO ME  /  Lillie Kae  /  “I’m Glad There Is You”
  • I WANT A LITTLE GIRL  /  Billy Eckstine  /  “No Cover No Minimum”
  • KEEP YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL  /  Emmy Rossum  /  “Sentimental Journey”
  • THE GREAT CITY  /  Shirley Horn  /  “But Beautiful”
  • SIGNING OFF  /  Helen Merrill  /  A Date With The Blues”

Second: Night Of The Living Insomnaics! Ok, let’s dispense with the jokes about how can I have insomnia when I’m always putting audiences to sleep. That makes me yawn, okay? But not because I’m tired. Still, pretty impressive how many great singers and songs have dealt with the subject. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  Album or CD Title

  • IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS  /  Ella Fitzgerald  /  “Live At Mister Kelly’s

  • SANDMAN  /  The Jive Aces Skiffle Combo  /  “It’s Skiffle Time”
  • ROUND MIDNIGHT  /  Kenny Rankin  /  “Live From Studio A”
  • YOUR CHEATING HEART  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Joey Bishop  /  “Joey Bishop Sings Country Western”
  • DANCING ON THE CELING  /  Inge Brandenburg  /  “Don’t Blame Me”
  • COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS  /  Steven Pasquale  /  “Somethin’ Like Love”
  • BLACK COFFEE  /  Vocapella  /  “Black Coffee”
  • DREAM  /  Michael Bublé  /  “Call Me Irresponsible”

Still awake? Looking for a late night or early morning or anytime pick-me-up?
