January 20, 2021: A Few of My Favorite Things

Happy Inauguration Day! I find myself filled with hope and optimism, almost despite myself given the past four years. I recognize that there are no magic bullets — politics in our country has a long way to go before I’d call the system ‘healthy,’ but I’m hoping this is a step in the right direction.

As for the event itself, Amanda Gorman was AMAZING.

In any case, this week’s show highlights things that make me happy.

Things like musicals (Guys & Dolls, My Fair Lady) and Harry Connick Jr. and Emily Cole and YouTube videos for Baby Can Dance and God Moves On The Water and swing music out of France and Israel and Turkey and all the other fabulous places where, as bad as things might get, people remember to swing!

So here are a few things that make me happy, and I hope they make you happy too!

December 30, 2020: After You’ve Gone

Dear 2020,

After you’ve gone, I won’t miss you at all.

Sincerely,

Me.

Just a couple days left! In the meantime, here is two hours of great music to swing out 2020 and swing in 2021.

Enjoy!

December 23, 2020: Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead!

Let the joyous news be spread, the wicked old witch, at last, is dead.

Well, you know … fingers crossed.

In the meantime, here is a new show! I’m working on a holiday show too, which may come out as early as Friday, so keep your eyes peeled.

Until then, happy holidays to you and yours!

With love, Ahniwa.

September 16, 2020: You’re Beginning to Be a Habit With Me

Does two shows make a streak? I’m saying yes. Good job, team, pats on the back all around. Too late to make it this week live on the air, but I’m going to post on the site anyway, as this is the (quote/unquote) permanent home of the show, while all other locations are temporary and tertiary.

As always, boatloads of new music, including tracks from Albanie Falletta, Birch Pereira, Canibal Dandies, Emily Estrella, Jonathan Doyle, Hot Sugar Band, and many, many, many more. Enjoy!
