The 2nd 2024 Spring New Music Showcase 12PM-4PM EDT on Wednesday’s “Theme Attic!!!”

What should one do when one’s computer dies and ruins months of show prep?
Why, of course, do the Second 2024 Spring New Music Showcase!
That’s what’s on tap for Wednesday’s “Theme Attic” with host Phil Maq from 12PM-4PM EDT!!!
Adjustments needed to be made.
For example, there will be a plethora of singles on today’s show!
Why, you ask?
Well, one of my personal goals is to listen to at least one new single per day.
I never run out of them!
So, that is what I am most prepared for.
I’ve always considered doing an all new singles show…and then I come to my senses.
This show may be as close as I ever get to that.
At the moment, there are 17 on the playlist!
There are 13 artists with Southeast Michigan ties!
25 artist debuts!
2-3 world premieres!
Another round of Random Record Roulette!
And a Top 9 at 2:09 of this week’s Fave Albums!
Take that computer! (But don’t say that out loud because the one I’m using might hear and wreak more havoc on me!)
Flobajomy!
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 Pip Blom, Softcult, Lyn Stanley (Her new album cover for “Black Dress Ballads” is right of center in the banner!), Kacy Hill, Cris Jacobs, Muriel Anderson (Her new album cover for :Sailing Dreams” is on the left in the banner!)(Muriel Anderson), RubyJoyful, stellaprincemusic (Stella Prince), Phoebe Rees Music (Phoebe Rees), Alexandra Archer, 1000 Grams, Pom Poko unofficial, Sheppard, The Quill, Lol Tolhurst, Sid Simons, and more!!!
Songs by artists from 2PM-4PM EDT should include Bill Price, Shari Puorto Band (Shari Puorto), The Gravel Shakers (Their latest album cover, “Forward in All Directions,” is in the bottom left corner of the banner!)(Todd Perkins), Shaun Murphy, Annie & Rod Capps (Annie Capps), Bob Sky Young (His new album cover, “Love the Moments,” is in the center of the banner!), Judy Banker, DIRK KROLL BAND (The Dirk Kroll Band is playing Black Crystal Cafe in Ann Arbor, Michigan this Saturday!)(Marci Feldman), Ceolsige (Kelsey Detering), Jennifer Westwood And The Handsome Devils (Jennifer Westwood), Michael Snyder-Barker (His new album cover “60-2024,” is second from the right in the banner!), Foundry Town Survivors with Michael on Fire (Ron Colone), The Regulators, Ringo Starr (His new album cover, “Crooked Boy,” is in the lower right corner of the banner!), Ben Levin Piano (Ben Levin), David Roof, Jeff Karoub (LIVE MUSIC: Jeff Karoub & Garrison Corner in Dearborn, Michigan this Saturday!), DON ARBOR, The Surfers, PAPOOZ, The Slingers, and more!!!
So, grab some fresh ears and a good attitude, get a friend to listen with, and come along for Wednesday’s “Theme Attic” from 12PM-4PM EDT with Phil Maq!!!

Phil’s Faves: Albums, May 19, 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!”

My somewhat unusual Hall of Fame can be explored here: https://philmaq.com/hall-of-fame/!

Lastly, but most importantly, is my Philby Awards link! A Philby is my annual award for brilliant musical achievement! https://philmaq.com/philbys/!

I will have a wide range of musical treats that will probably weave in and out of the two subjects!
A Top 9 at 2:09 PM Countdown of this week’s Fave Songs will add to the fun!
14 artists with Southeast Michigan will make things even funner!
Hazow!
I will divide the tags into sections, but they will only be an estimate.

Songs by artists from 12PM-2:09 PM EDT should include JL Fulks, Our Girl, Roger Ponder, Kenny Young and the Eggplants (Kenny Young), Gary Browe Music (Gary Browe), Kelly’s Lot (Kelly Zirbes), Michael on Fire, and many more!!!
