Phil’s Faves: Albums, July 7, 2024

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 2:09” segment of my “Theme Attic Show,” Wednesdays 12PM-4PM ET on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link: https://www.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.

There’s plenty of other musical things to browse!

A list that you might find interesting is my list for “The Most Awesomest Songs of the Day”: https://philmaq.com/most-awesomest-songs/!

If you’d like to know what I think are even better than the awesome songs, have a look at “The Greatest Songs Ever Recorded”:https://philmaq.com/the-greatest-songs-ever-recorded/! Occasionally, an “awesome song” crosses over to become a “Greatest Song!”

Phil’s Faves: Songs, July 7, 2024

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, Theme Attic,” heard Wednesdays 12PM-4PM ET!

The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link: https://www.whfr.fm/streamer/!

This list forms the basis of my countdown list on the “Top 9 at 2:09” segment of my show on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!

Start the Holiday Early With the Annual Almost All-American Show on Wednesday’s “Theme Attic,” 12PM-4PM EDT!!!

Birthdays are usuually happy celebrations.
And Wednesday’s Annual Almost All-American Show on “Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 12PM-4PM EDT will pretty much fall into that category.
But, I think, if you are unaware of the changing national landscape, you must have blinders on.
However, I will not ruin the birthday party and focus mostly on the greatness of our country through music!
A Top 9 at 2:09 EDT will feature this week’s albums Countdown!
Stats are worthy of an American celebration: 7 artist debuts, 7 new releases, 15 artists with Southeast Michigan ties, and 2 singles!
Happy Independence Day!
I will divide the tags into sections, but they will only be an estimate.
I can’t guarantee that everything will fit into those slots, but I will try very hard to stick to them! (It may be more difficult this week.)
However…they are NOT in sequential order. (I often make changes during the show!)
Songs by artists from 12PM-2:09 PM EDT should include Julianne Ankley, Grant Maloy Smith, Eli & Fur, Colin Monette (His new “Simple Gifts” album cover is second from the right in the banner!), Sue Radner Horowitz, Mark Joseph, Savage Grace, Linda Thompson (Her new album cover for “Proxy Music” is just right of center in the banner!), Roger Ponder, Andrew Stonehome, Benny Bleu (His “Banjo Jubilations” album cover is on the left in the banner!), (Benny Bleu Haravitch), Josie Bello, Judy Banker, Judy Nazemetz, Ken Tillery (His album cover for “Used to Ain’t Gere Anymore” is second from the left in the banner!), The Accidentals, The Karney Band, Alice Howe, Deb Seymour Music (Her new album cover for “Sometimes You Gotta Wear Boots” is on the right in the banner!)(Deb Seymour), and more!!!
So, bring some red, white, and blue snacks, get a friend to listen with, and come along for Wednesday’s “Theme Attic” from 12PM-4PM EDT with Phil Maq!!!
The STATION’S NEW ANTENNA AND TRANSMITTER MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO HEAR THE SHOW ALL OVER THE METRO DEARBORN-DETROIT AREA BY TUNING INTO 89.3 WHFR.FM!
THE STREAMING UPGRADES TO THE STATION MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HEAR THE STATION BETTER ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Summer Had a Head Start on Wednesday’s “Theme Attic,” 12PM-4PM EDT!!!

 

 

With a jam packed schedule, there are no extra weeks to adjust themes to match the best weather.
And synchronizing with nature would be insane!
Therefore, while it’s not the best weather day for today’s show, “Summer Had a Head Start” will be Wednesday’s “Theme Attic” subject with Phil Maq from 12PM-4PM EDT!
In a sense, this show is one of the easiest for me to figure out.
So, I decided to take a look at Summer songs over the years.
Many of them will be fairly rare, or at the least, obscure!
Those will be sprinkled throughout!
However, there will be plenty of fairly new music, too!
You know.
A typical “Theme Attic” covering many styles of music!
There will also be a Top 9 at 2:09 EDT of this week’s Fave Songs!
And, The Turtles will enter the “Theme Attic Hall of Fame!”
This week’s stats are impressive, too!: 12 artist debuts, 9 new releases, 3 unreleased, 13 artists with Southeast Michigan ties, and 4 singles!
I will divide the tags into sections, but they will only be an estimate.
I can’t guarantee that everything will fit into those slots, but I will try very hard to stick to them! (It may be more difficult this week.)
However…they are NOT in sequential order. (I often make changes during the show!)
Songs by artists from 12PM-2:09 PM EDT should include The Great Get Gone, brand new unreleased sparkle*jets u.k. (Their album cover for “Box of Letters” is third from the left in the banner!), Librarians With Hickeys, (Big Stir Records), Rubblebucket, Djangophonique, Sam Corbin, Bevin Luna, Kathy Johnson, Nancy Sinatra, Roger Ponder, Kitten and The Tonics (Their album cover for “Alarium” is in the lower left corner of the banner!), Janie Next Door – Jane Christison, Electric Beauty (Their album cover is in the center of the banner!), and more!!!
