Some of you have asked why I haven’t been posting my radio show playlists lately. I really haven’t had much time for typing them in. But some of them are on the WUSB Stony Brook NY 90.1 FM website under my program’s listing. Please check them out, and tell me what you think!
So far this year, the top song has been “Endlessly” by Green River Ordinance. What — me, playing ballads?? No apology for this one.
If any of you are from commercial stations and wonder what you should do for Christmas, send me an email.

It’s strange, how so many of the TV shows Allan Sherman mentions in Al ‘n Yetta (from the ’60s) can still be seen on some cable channel. Case’s song is about wanting to repent — but wanting it not quite enough. The Trumpet Child is eschatology through the grid of supper club music. Bill Morrisey (with Phil Minnisale) is appearing Sunday 2pm at the University Cafe here on the Stony Brook campus. Catch you there?
