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.
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!
Two in one week? Heck yeah! Turns out there is a slot open on KAOS from 1-3pm on Christmas day, so not only a holiday show on the site but something on the air for folks to enjoy as well. Super exciting!
This is the third Christmas holiday show I’ve put together and is, in my opinion, the best one by far. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think, maybe tell me what your favorite track is, or if there is a song I missed that definitely should have been included. Enjoy and thanks for listening!
Reaching back to some favorites I haven’t played in awhile, mixed in with some new tracks that I haven’t played ever, mixed in with some other great tunes. As always, jazz, swing, and blues to get up and dance to!
