Phil’s Faves: Songs, October 13, 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’s Faves: Albums, October 6, 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.

4 Years of Prime Time Anniversary Show, Monday Night, 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

Many of my radio milestones seem to be grouped together. However, they ARE milestones and I will celebrate each one as it turns up.

Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PM EDT will mark 4 years of Prime Time! It’s a show that was spun off of my weekly morning show, “Theme Attic,” and it allowed me to bring alive my weekly Faves lists as well as play even more new music! That’s MY personal mission.

With my morning show on hiatus, it is the only show I do now, and I continue to make adjustments on what I feel the show should or could be.

I usually look at any anniversary as a free theme show, but for this one, I want to revisit the station wide subject of time from a couple of weeks ago. That’s because I thought I had brought all of my files for the show with me, but I didn’t. So, more songs about time and a “Top 9 at 9:09” is what I’m shooting for.

Songs by featured artists will include Greg KihnDustbowl RevivalThe Alan Parsons Project, and The Brother Brothers. There’s brand new music from Kelsey Waldon (Her album cover for “White Lines/White Noise” is in the banner on the right.), GYZE, and EllaHarp (Her album cover for “Who Asked You Back” is in the banner on the left. Other featured artists are Mike Gentry Music, Carlos Santana, Billy Brandt and the Sugaree’sJudy BankerPretendersVandenberg’s MoonKingsRare EarthThe Forty NineteensSavoy BrownThe BreakfastBill Kirchenthe Polka Floyd show (Their album cover is in the middle of the banner.) Ball Park MusicJoe Satriani and probably more!!!

Invite 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 PrimeTimeX4 link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use RadioFM or TuneIn to stream it.
