Thread: Playing Favorites on Sirius

    ...Tyrell is one terrific performer! And this was a fun "Playing Favorites" because his personality and taste just sparkle! He loves the GAS, and that's very evident. He's also a hell of a producer!

    And his Bacharach-David album is wonderful!

    Steve Tyrell's "Playing Favorites" was great. I love listening to Steve talk and sing. His Texan accent is so endearing and adds to his charm . I enjoyed Steve's "Sinatra" anecdotes especially the one about Keeley Smith's comments. (good times for sure).
    Do you think I'll remember how you looked when you smiled,
    Only forever, that's putting it mild

    Playing Favorites with Stefanie Powers
    Mon, 11/15 6:00 PM, Thurs 11/18 9:00 am ET, Sat 3:00 pm ET

    Stefanie Powers stopped in our studio with minutes to spare. She told us how much she loved Rodgers and Hart, especially Lorenz Hart’s masterful lyrics. She jotted down an hour’s worth of R&H titles she’d love to hear and even recorded a few song introductions for us to scatter during the hour. It’s an all-Rodgers and Hart hour of wonderful music, with a few hand picked favorites from Stefanie. Next time, she promised to stay a bit longer but we were so happy that she came by.

    Stefanie Powers' Selections:
    1. Manhattan - Rod Stewart & Bette Midler
    2. Where or When - Carly Simon
    3. My Funny Valentine - Frank Sinatra
    4. I Could Write a Book - Harry Connick, Jr.
    5. Thou Swell - Ella Fitzgerald
    6. Blue Moon - Nat King Cole
    7. Little Girl Blue - Frank Sinatra

    13. It Never Entered My Mind - Frank Sinatra
    14. Falling in Love with Love - Vic Damone

    I caught only a little of the Stephanie Powers show today, but since I also love Rogers and Hart, it will be a great show to catch it in its entirety later this week.

  9. #929
    Are you calling it Rodgers and Hart-to-Hart?

    Thank you.
    Thank you very much.

  10. Go to bed, Jim.

    It was genius.

    Great Intro, Leigh Ann!

    In my opinion, nothing better than Rodgers & Hart; Nothing! Stefanie should be at the race track, since she picked one winner after another!

    FS and Co. do the geniuses proud. How can anyone listen to "Glad To Be Unhappy" and not be amazed at a verse such as "Look at yourself if you had a sense of humor, you would laugh to beat the band...Look at yourself if you still believe the rumor that romance is simply grand?"

    Hart succinctly summed up their brilliance: "Thou swell, thou witty, thou sweet, thou GRAND!"

    Playing Favorites with Nan Schwartz
    Mon. 11/29 6:00 pm ET, Thurs. 12/1 9:00 am ET, Sat. 12/4 3:00 pm ET

    Last November, we aired a show of music picked by Grammy winning arranger Nan Schwartz and our listeners loved it. Nan’s father was Willie Schwartz, the sax and clarinet man who Nelson Riddle and Billy May came to count on to give Frank’s records a special sound. He’s the man who helped Glenn Miller create a signature feel that changed the course of popular music in the 1930’s. And Nan’s mother was Peggy Clark, one of Tommy Dorsey’s Sentimentalists. No wonder Nan knows and loves this music so much. We’re pleased to re-air this hour of music and memories.

    Nan Schwartz's Selections:
    1. Glenn Miller Orchestra – In The Mood
    2. The Clark Sisters (The Sentimentalists) w/Tommy Dorsey Orchestra – On The Sunny Side Of The Street
    3. Once I Loved (O Amor Em Paz) - Reprise 1967: Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim
    4. Original Motion Picture Sound Track – Love Theme from The Sandpiper (The Shadow Of Your Smile)
    5. I've Got You Under My Skin - Capitol 1956: Songs For Swingin' Lovers!
    6. Barbra Streisand – People
    7. Where Or When (with Count Basie Orchestra) - Live 1966: Sinatra At The Sands
    8. Willow Weep For Me - Capitol 1958: Sings For Only The Lonely
    9. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Capitol 1957: A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra
    10. We'll Be Together Again - Capitol 1956: Songs For Swingin' Lovers!
    11. Let's Face The Music And Dance - Reprise 1979: Trilogy (The Past)
    12. Natalie Cole – Here's That Rainy Day
    13. Joni Mitchell – Both Sides, Now
    14. I've Got A Crush On You (duet with Barbra Streisand) - Capitol 1993: Duets
    15. The Best Is Yet To Come (with Count Basie Orchestra) - Reprise 1964: It Might As Well Be Swing

    Nan's stories are facinating! If you are a fan of the big band music of the 40s, you'll really enjoy this show.
    Leigh Ann

    A "Nan-tastic" Hour!.

    Great job, as always, Leigh Ann! Nan's PF was wonderful the first time around, and 'just as wonderful' the second time around! What I would love to see (& hear), hopefully in 2011, is a two-hour Nan Schwartz PF in which one of the hours would have Nan play her BIG BAND FAVORITES, while the second hour would be the 'regular' PF format!

    ANYTHING that concerns The Big Band Era brings out my 'selfish' nature!

    Ditto, Nancy!

    Ronnie has a wonderfully melodic voice. His recording of "Lost in The 50's" is one of our all-time rock & roll favorites! Can't wait!
