PLAYLIST FOR “INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK” (2.19.22)

21 Feb

This week I paid tribute to the roads and highways, the bridges and tunnels, the power, communications, and water systems. I thought I’d better hurry up and celebrate Infrastructure Week before everything crumbles, fizzles out, implodes, and self-destructs.

PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY! SIGH…” (10.10.20)

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 “JAZZ JUKEBOX” (11.17.18)

19 Nov

Saturday afternoon, I sat in for Garrett Stack on his program American Jukebox, rock and pop hits of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.  So I thought I’d spend Saturday evening on my show playing jazz versions of pop tunes. I gave the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Dorothy Fields, etc. the night off.  They didn’t complain, probably for reasons of death.
