Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

This week we finish off the month of May with some scratchy old Christmas music, a lot of bluegrass, more instrumentals than usual (we should play more!), some choral music, some cover tunes, music from movies, theme park music, children, a little TV music, and more. You know, the usual stuff.

Episode #22: It’s Alarming How Charming We Feel

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

You won't find a lot of 60s music in this program but we still think you'll like it.  We have songs by Noël and Cole, Bix from 1927, a block of show tunes, a little dose of "indie" (whatever that means), we have some fun at Ringo's expense, and we even slip in a couple of bona fide hits. ("Thank you very much.")  And we end with the theme to a TV show of which we've both seen every episode, which makes us feel accomplished indeed.

We aim to please.  No, really, we do.  Help us spread the pleasure.
