PLAYLIST FOR “IN PRESENT PERFECT – A MUSICAL TRIBUTE” (9.19.20)

20 Sep

Who wants to take a quiz? Of course you do! It’s a grammar quiz – and of course you don’t. Too bad; here it is: Present Perfect. I know – there’s nothing perfect about the present. I meant Present Perfect Tense. I know – could things get any more tense? You’re still not with me. The Present Perfect Tense describes something that began in the past and is still happening – like this interminable introduction. Present Perfect tense is formed by the word have or has followed by the past participle of a verb. For instance this introduction has shaken my trust in humanity. Which is a bit extreme, don’t you think? A better example would be all of the song titles in my playlist. Yes, it was another one of my self-indulgent and utterly futile attempts to Make Grammar Great Again (MGGA!) with a Musical Tribute to the Present Perfect Tense.

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 “REQUEST WEEK” – TURNTABLE FOR ONE SEASON 11 PREMIERE (9.5.20)

6 Sep

I kicked off my 11th season by kicking back and letting the audience do most of the work. Every song (until the last) was a request from someone out there in radioland. About half-way through the show, I started to fret that their choices were so good, maybe they don’t need me at all. Lesson: Always watch out for unintended consequences.

PLAYLIST FOR “JUST JOE” – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST – (8.22.20)

23 Aug

This is a show from last March. At that time Joe Biden was an ascendent candidate and the man of the moment. Ditto for this past week, so I played the show again. If you don’t think that Biden is the man of the moment, feel free to tell yourself that the show is dedicated to Joe DiMaggio, or Jo March, or Joseph K or just a cup of joe. To give an appearance of fairness back then, I tossed in a couple songs for Bernie, too. I kept those in. Back with a new show next week.
