Phil’s Faves: Albums, November 10, 2019

Over time, my listening habits have changed and at the moment I usually listen to albums completely through. I haven’t done that in years, but it’s actually very rewarding—particularly when the album is good. Every album that will be on this list will fit that category.

Songs from the albums on this list forms the basis of my countdown list for the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show,” (Mondays, 8P-10P ET) on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

Here’s a link:

https://whfr.fm/streamer/

It’s another peak into my listening habits—which is a goal of mine. If you want to know where I’m heading or what I think about some new music, you will find it here.

I honestly don’t expect there to be much volatility on this list because these albums are what I have been basing many of the sets on my show.

Once again, there will be no boundaries. I will go wherever my musical muse takes me.

Phil’s Faves: Songs, November 10, 2019

This is a weekly Top Ten list of what I consider to be the best songs that I listened to the previous week. Most songs will be current, but there are no boundaries. I’ve already stated on this web site that I am obsessed with music. I am constantly hunting it down whether it’s online, on CD, from my personal collection, from a library (Yes, I think the library is a great source of music–especially for music that you aren’t sure about.), TV, or radio. Since most of these sources mostly emphasize new music, the odds are pretty good that most of the songs on this list will be new. But in my search, I don’t use any boundaries for the other sources. I am just looking for good music that I haven’t heard, or happened to forget about. Everyone, including myself, has forgotten way more great music than they can ever remember-even if they are also music fanatics.

Also, there will be no rules concerning songs on this list. A song can show up or drop off a number of times. This will be the most volatile of my lists. It all depends on how much music I am exposed to during the week and what I find interesting. On really obscure stuff, I will try to include the source, if I know it.

Most of the songs heard on this list have been played on my radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8PM-10PM ET!

This list forms the basis of my countdown list on the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show” on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!

Phil Maq Serves up a Tasty Countdown at The Malt Shop, Tuesday Afternoon, 1PM-3PM EST!!!

Well, now. Daddy G has asked me, Phil Maq, to sit in for him on “The Malt Shop” today from 1PM-3PM EST!

I have decided to do something special thanks to Sally O’Mally Schroeder, who posted a WKNR Music Guide from October 24, 1966.

The station-which just had its anniversary on October 31, was very influential to anyone growing up in the Detroit area!

I personally used to have a sliding door where I taped the guides and referred to them as needed! It was also a snapshot of the current music scene featuring a cross section of musical styles.

I will countdown the whole list on today’s show, so join me to hear some favorites as well as several songs I don’t remember ever hearing!

It’s an interesting mix of Motown soul, garage, early psychedelic, retro nostalgia, folk rock, pop, and many other styles.

My banner alone features (from left to right) Brenda Lee OfficialTommy RoeDionne WarwickMitch Ryder, and Johnny Rivers!!!

The WKNR list lives again today at “The Malt Shop!”

Ask a friend to listen, come along for the ride, and tune in to 89.3 FM (89.3 WHFR.FM) in the Dearborn-Detroit area, stream it anywhere in the world with this special Keener link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use RadioFM or TuneIn to stream it.
