“Prime Time Theme Attic” Is Feeling Kinda Blue…In a Good Way, Monday Night, 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

I’m not going to call Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PmEDT a blues show.

It’s not.

I’m not going to call it a dance show.

It’s not.

However, you might want to keep your dancing shoes handy, just in case!

I’ve picked a group of songs that feel and sound pretty good together that are kinda r&b flavored.

Of course, there will be a “Top 9 at 9:09” of this week’s Fave Albums. That will help provide some of the variety that the Theme Attic shows are known for!

Songs by artists will include Richard Newell aka King Biscuit Boy – Tribute Page, Marcia Ball, Nick Piunti & The Complicated Men, Steve’n’Seagulls, Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers, Laura Rain and The Caesars, Mick Clarke, Sarah McQuaid, Tom Curless, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne (Album cover for “Jumpin’ and Boppin'” in the banner.) , Jim Byrnes, Joseph Veloz with Erich Gobel, Beer Me” by Kevin Fisher, Gregory Stovetop, Andy Santana, Jemmi Hazeman & The Honey Riders, Magic Kramer, Deep Purple (1968-1976), Billy Brandt & Sarana VerLin, Joe Stanley, Sonny Rhodes, The Sabres, The Bayonets, I Don’t Trust Robots, and possibly more!!!

Phil’s Faves: Albums, August 12, 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, August 12, 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!

It’s the All-New Jean-Luc Ponty Interview, Part 1, Wednesday Morning, 10AM-12PM EDT!!!

I can’t believe that I was lucky enough to have a second interview with Jean-Luc Ponty, the phenomenal words alone can’t describe jazz violinist who will be returning on August 15th to his favorite Detroit location, Chene Park!

I think the interview sounds looser as we revisit memories of his earliest recording sessions in the string section with Paul Mauriat,  the pre Frank Zappa days of jamming with The George Duke Trio, and touching on some of the many stars he has collaborated with like Stanley Clarke, Al DiMeola, Tony Williams, Ray Parker, Jr., Ralphe Armstrong, and Alan Holdsworth!

We even spend some time talking about “monsters!”

It’s a lot of fun, and I am happy to present Pt.1 of this interview, that I have added musical selections to for providing the master at his craft!

PT. 2 will be aired next Wednesday, August 15th!

Tune in to 89.3 FM (89.3 WHFR.FM) in the Dearborn-Detroit area, stream it anywhere in the world with this special enigmatic link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use Tune In Player to stream it.
