(Song of the day Sep 11 Lena Horne - Stormy Weather. I think you can guess from this song what the topical theme of the week will be on the Song Of The Day Show this week. Thoughts and prayers for all those in the strike zones of the hurricanes.
(Song of the day Sep 18 '17) Jeremy Kittel - Summer's End/Elly's Autumn. Autumn begins on Friday, so we'll hear some fall-themed tunes this week. Let's kick it off with some music reminiscent of the wonderful dance and music weekend from which I just returned home. In the music still I can see the sunrise and smell the coffee there on the morning beach...
(Song of the day Feb 25 '17) Hair - What a Piece of Work Is Man. This week's theme for the Song Of The Day Show - literature put to music, or paraphrased into song. I hope I'll be able to find 7 of them! We'll begin with this soliloquy from "Hamlet" as adapted in my favorite musical (with an original song as coda).
(Song of the day Aug 6 Sarah Jarosz - Come On Up To The House. In Year One I shared Tom Waits' original of this great song. For Alternative Versions Week, here's another great performance for the Sunday song of the day.
(Song of the day Feb Poi Dog Pondering - Postcard From a Dream (Toast and Jelly). You may be wondering as you listen to this joyful fun little song why it's on Morning Songs Week.morning will come smilin'.
(Song of the day Apr 18) The Byrds - Turn! Turn! Turn! (Live). Let's time travel for songs of the day this week, eh? Songs from my high school days. This clip of an early favorite song in my pop-music listening years is a rarity from the '60s - a concert video that's doesn't appear to be lip-sync...at least, for sure it's not the top-40 recording of the tune.
