Phil’s Faves: Albums, December 9, 2018

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!

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

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, December 9, 2018

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!

Philby Hot 100 Songs of 2018, Pt. 1, Monday Night 8PM-10PM EST!!!

It’s Philby season, baby, and this year it’s going to be extra long because of the holiday season!

Part 1 of this year’s “Philby Hot 100 songs of 2018” will take place on Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PM EST!!!

I have the Top 89 (89-isn’t that funny, because of, you know, 89.3) slots filled with songs that have appeared on my weekly Fave’s lists.

That means that I have 11 choices for “bubbling under” the Top 10-another reason to submit music for Philby consideration!) and I will select even more brilliant songs for those slots!!!

Also, has been my tradition I will select even more new music that I haven’t played yet to still make albums and artists eligible for my year end albums list–usually as show openers and finales! For this show, those artists will be The Karpinka Brothers and Susie Fitzgerald Music!

Songs by artists on the show, which is still being worked on, will feature Beer Me” by Kevin FisherPhil Lee – The Mighty King Of LoveJo Serrapere & the LaFawndas (Her picture is in the banner in the lower right corner.), TelamorThe WagDeane Nesbitt Jr (His picture is in the upper right corner of the banner.), Gretchen’s Wheel, Sigrid Christiansen, Shawn Adam Williams (His picture is in the upper right corner of the banner.), The RegrettesEscaping PavementMichael Stephens (He is pictured in the middle wearing a hat, or third from the right in the banner.), Nick Moss Band, Ellison (His picture is in the bottom left corner of the banner.), George Stephen Kelly (He is picture in the bottom row, second from the right), John Holk & the SequinsDavid RoofDan Hall,  George Bedard and the Kingpins, and Charley & Jesi!!!

The internet stream is down so you can only catch the show locally on 89.3 FM WHFR in the Dearborn-Detroit area.

It’s the Fall New Music Showcase Pt. 2, Wednesday Morning, 10AM-12PM EST!!!

Part two of any of my new music showcases is always the more difficult one because I’ve pretty much used up most of my picks on part one and then I have to fill another two hours two days later with even more debuts! But that’s OK. I welcome the challenge. So, Wednesday morning’s 2018 Fall New Music Showcase Part 2 on “Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 10AM-12PM EST will feature plenty of music that might literally even be new to me! As with Part 1 of the Fall Showcase, new will be a relative term, many being from 2015 to make albums Philby eligible. A song has to be played on one of my shows to make it or an album open to consideration. But I will have new, too!

Songs by artists on the show should include The Cerny BrothersMike Gentry Music (The cover of Mike Gentry Music‘s album is in the upper left corner of the banner.), Greg NagyLatvian Radio (Album cover for “Pick Your Poison, Pick Your Blues” in the lower left corner of the banner.), Sam Corbin, brand new Car City (Album cover for “Car City” in the upper right corner of the banner.), Dede and the Dreamers, brand new Bob MaloneJo Serrapere & the LaFawndas (sorta)(Johnny’s Speakeasy)(Album cover for “Gotcha Covered: The Songs of John Williams” in the lower right corner of banner.), unreleased THE DIRK KROLL BAND for their upcoming performance Thursday night at Willis Show Bar, brand new Michael Stephens song by The Pennock/Stephens Project, Chris Dorman, Jesse Xavier band, and plenty more!!! Come on 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 Fall showcase link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use TuneIn Player or RadioFMto stream it.
