Phil’s Faves: Songs, November 12, 2017

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 shows, “Theme Attic,” heard Wednesdays, 10A-12N ET, or “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8P-10P 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 alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!

There’s also a new “Top 9 at 3:09” on Wednesday afternoons on my “Mid Day Theme Attic Show” from 2p-4P ET that does the list that wasn’t featured on “Prime Time Theme Attic that week! (Whew!)

Phil’s Faves: Albums, November 5, 2017

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 alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

There’s also a new “Top 9 at 3:09” on Wednesday afternoons on my “Mid Day Theme Attic Show” from 2p-4P ET that does the list that wasn’t featured on “Prime Time Theme Attic that week! (Whew!)

They may also turn up on my “Theme Attic Show,” (Wednesdays, 10A-12N ET)

Here’s a link:

Listen live: www.whfr.fm/images/stream_audio.html

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.

Prime Time Theme Attic Hosts Michael On Fire, Monday, November 6, 8PM-10PM EST!!!

Michael on Fire has produced more quality music on each of his albums than many artists produce in a lifetime! Honest lyrics, sincere vocals, and superb musicians are part of his winning approach.

And Michael doesn’t seem to forget anything on his life journey. His songs range from musical stories about his early school years to his take on world situations. And he started his career in Detroit playing in a jazz band called The Prismatics!

His most recent release, “The Solstice Session/Tracks Along the Way” has been on my Phil’s Faves lists for several months, currently at #2!

Michael on Fire is in town for a special charity event this Thursday, November 9th at the Gem Theatre.

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

The Gem Theatre

Michael On Fire and Henry Diltz for Artist Advocacy 7 p.m.

333 Madison Ave
Detroit Michigan
Price: $125

Henry Diltz will present Stories Behind the Covers – behind-the-scenes tales of famous Album covers and iconic photographs, followed by a concert by Michael On Fire.

But before that happens, Michael will be appearing on Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” from 8PM-10PM EST! He will play some songs and talk music with me! Since one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen was one of his shows, the evening will be a one-of-a-kind night!  Check it out with this link: http://whfr.fm/images/stream_audio.html or 89.3 FM WHFR in the Dearborn-Detroit area!
