Jason Hawk Harris on “Prime Time Theme Attic,” Monday Night, 8PM-10PM ET!!!

Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PM ET, has another special in studio performance!

Jason Hawk Harris of The Show Ponies, will drop in before he makes several stops in Michigan this week! More than likely, he’ll play a song or two from his latest release, “Formaldehyde, Tobacco, and Tulips!” That means that the “Top 9” will be at 8:09 this week, probably on both sides of talking to Jason!

Songs by other artists on the show will include John Latini and the Flying Latini Brothers, Victoria Reed, Xposed 4Heads with Al Mothersbaugh, Birdsong At Morning, Taller Than They Appear Band, Oginalii, Matt Jones and The Reconstruction, Joe Cocker, Ben Rogers, The Regrettes, CommonUnion59, and more!!!

Tune in to 89.3 FM (89.3 WHFR.FM) in the Dearborn-Detroit area, and more than likely, you’ll have to use Echo or Tune In Players to stream it. Please share freely with your fans, friends, and families, but say something about yourself in the comments section when you repost it, so that everyone knows why your posting it!

Phil’s Faves: Albums, February 11, 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:

Listen live: www.whfr.fm/images/stream_audio.html

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, February 11, 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!

“Today’s “Mid Day Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 2PM-4PM ET, (Right after “Afternoon Jazz” with Mr. Jags from 12 Noon-2PM ET!), will feature a set of songs that go against the grain: songs that end before the song is finished!

Well, I have a set of what I think are rare songs–those that end abruptly!

There will also be a “Top 9 at 3:09” of “Phil’s Faves: Songs,” as well as spotlights on Lynn McCracken, and The Record Company!!! Songs by other artists on the show will include Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights, The Beatles, American Housewife, ShwizZ, Escaping Pavement, Jesse Xavier, Neil Young, The Static Dial, DogHouse Swine official, Edwardsongs, DetroitSecrets, Judy Banker, and more!!!
