Hour 2—Parlour Game: Echoes of Last Week

I hope most of my shows hang together reasonably well, but it's occurred to me more than once that sometimes my themes are somewhat obscure (like, 'why these songs?'). So it is with this week's theme, and I figured that the term "parlour game" would denote an unusually marginal theme, and one that more than likely edifies the host and only the host--though I hope the set is listenable enough. So anyhow...last week Jim filled in for me, and me brain started working as some of the songs he programmed reminded me of other similar titles, and as an added twist, I tried to include a number or number variant in each title, like Jim also did. That's reflected in the playlist below. Second hour songs are in bold, and Jim's selections (the original inspirations) follow in parentheses...Told you it was obscure!--Marc

Update: No winner! A few guesses, but no winner. (We'll see if McCardle figured it out). Here was what was played:

“The Love Boat” theme—Jack Jones

Sweet Lorraine—King Cole Trio
Queen Elizabeth Christmas speech excerpt

Thanks to those of you who gave it a try!--Marc

Hour 3--Feature album: I've Seen Everything--The Trash Can Sinatras (1993)

Wednesday, June 11, 2008


This week's show will feature a "Mystery Theme" contest in the 9 o'clock hour. I play the music and certain audio snippets and pretty much keep my mouth closed. Your mission? Guess what these songs and sound clips have in common, and then either call me at the station (724-357-WIUP) with your answer, or IM me on AOL Instant Messenger, keyword IUPRADIO. First person to guess the theme will win...(yes, I have a prize this time)...the Kings of Leon CD "Because of the Times," a CD that had some of my favorite songs from last year.

Last time I did the mystery theme hour, the theme was "Songs that feature flute." Not too difficult, really. This time around it will be more difficult, I do believe. The theme can involve the song titles, or the group or singers' names...or maybe it's concerning lyrical content, or instrumentation...or something else very obscure. Bend your brain and have a listen and have a guess, if you're so inclined.

And if no one calls...or gets the right answer...I keep the CD (and I drink your milkshake)!

Good luck to ya.

Hour 2--Songwriter Spotlights

Something a bit different this hour: Here are six well-known songs, and all were hits for these artists. But these artists didn't write any of these songs. I'll play the hit, and then focus on some of the actual songwriters' performing their own stuff. If you even know one of these composers, you're doing well! If you know all 5 (without Googling!), I tip my Altoona Curve baseball cap to you--you really know your music...
