Phil’s Faves: Albums, July 8, 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, July 8, 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!

Multi-Talented Bob Malone Guests on This Year’s “Almost All-American Show,” Monday Night, 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

The 4th of July used to be a time when it seemed that everyone in the country joined together to celebrate the holiday. I still think that’s true, but we live in unique times.

One thing that I know for certain is that there is a great musical canon to choose from about this great land of ours, and it is as varied as the people who wrote it!

In other words, it’s time for this year’s “Almost All-American Show” with Phil Maq, Monday night from 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

This year’s show is even more special because I have an interview with the incredibly talented Bob Malone! Bob has been very busy as of late, touring with John Fogerty, having a song in a new movie, recording with the one and only Ringo Starr, as well as working on his own music.

The show will include a world premiere of a new the liquid scene song! I am very honored that I am trusted with their new song!

Song’s by other artists will include Signal Flags, Red City Radio, Savage Grace, Happy Curmudgeons, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Paul Simon, The Wag, Steppenwolf – Band, Li’l Wally Fans, Rene y Rene, Don Arbor, Johnny Crawford, Grant Maloy Smith, Mare Wakefield Music and Nomad, Elliot Schneider, and possibly more!!!

“Steak and Shake” by Signal Flags Grills Phil Maq’s Airwaves!!!

Image result for steak and shake signal flags images

So the guys in the Seattle based band Signal Flags (John Giaccone, Mitch Brasch, Dave Tingley, Doug Patterson, and Bushel Britches) have been at it again. Signal Flags happen to be multiple Philby Award winners and have a habit of posting some radio clips of me playing them on my shows.

Well, this time they put together a montage of me announcing their recent Phil’s Faves song, “Steak and Shake” over several episodes. I got a kick out of it!

https://youtu.be/CDK4iB_jBy0

And since I don’t think it would be fair to just play a snippet of their song, here is the complete version of “Steak and Shake,” a summer jam if there ever was one! Play it loud!

https://youtu.be/Y9FNk-qm3Yg

Check out my radio shows, “Theme Attic,” heard Wednesdays, 10A-12N ET, or “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8P-10P ET!
