There Is No I In “Theme,” But There Is a You May 6, 2014

If you’ve been a regular listener of the show over the past few months, then you know that periodically I’ve been using a very simple theme: picking a letter of the alphabet and then selecting songs from artists whose names begin with that letter. I started with “A” and have been going alphabetically, and the next letter up is the letter “I.”

Normally, I’ve been selecting all of the artists and songs for these alphabetical themes. But I want to give you a chance this time. What “I” artists do you want to hear on the show? Remember, all of the artists must begin with the letter I–for solo artists, this means the last name; for groups, just the group name (disregard “the” in front of the group name, if there is one).

You don’t have to stop with the artist name: if you have a particular song you want to suggest from that artist, knock yourself out. The song does NOT have to be a hit (if you’re a fan of the show, you know that already), but it’s worth mentioning that the more obscure the song is, the more difficult it may be for me to find it. Don’t let that stop you, though–I do like a good challenge sometimes.

Obviously, I reserve the right to pick my own songs from the artists you suggest, or even none (I mean, it is my show after all). But rest assured, if the artist/song you suggest fits the theme, is appropriate for radio airplay, and I can find it, then there’s a pretty good chance I’ll get it in the show.

So, send me an email or use the link on this page to make your suggestions on the Facebook fan page for the show.

And yes, this means I’m truly looking forward to your emails.


No Energy To Think of a Creative Theme January 11, 2014

If you were lucky enough to be affected by the gajillion inches of snow that most of the Midwest saw this week and the Polar Vortex that nearly killed us all, then you understand that at this point in the week, I’ve no energy to spend coming up with a creative theme for tonight’s show. However, rest assured that there IS indeed a theme tonight–just not an overly creative one.

If you’re a fan of the show and have been listening in the past few weeks, you can probably figure out tonight’s theme. Even though it’s not creative, tonight’s show has a Diverse list of songs–so much so that I promise you’ll find it Decent–maybe even Delightful and Delicious, too (?!?). In fact, if I gave this show a grade, it would be a barely passing one, and I’d be comfortable Defending my Decision.

Whether you’ve figured out the theme from my less-than-creative hints or not, be sure to listen to the show tonight starting at 10:00pm EST on 88.7 FM/HD WICR (In central Indiana) or stream it anywhere at WICRonline.org
