Phil’s Faves: Songs, June 16, 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, June 9, 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.

Theme Attic’s Last 4 Hour Waltz, Wednesday Morning, 10AM-2PM EDT!!!

I’m not going anywhere.

Let me repeat that.

I’m not going anywhere…

But “Theme Attic”is going on hiatus.

“Prime Time Theme Attic” will continue on Monday nights as usual!

“Theme Attic” may come back in the future.

But it might not.

Since I am lucky enough to do an extra two hours, thanks to Mr. Jags who normally does “Afternoon Jazz” from 2PM-4PM EDT, it gives me the opportunity to send the show off in a big way and thank everybody that I can. I can also surround myself with music and artists that have become a part of my life since I started the show eight and a half years ago.

So, Wednesday morning’s “Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 10AM-2PM EDT will be the show’s “last waltz.”

Songs by artists will include Nick Piunti & The Complicated MenTHE DIRK KROLL BANDTommy Sistak’s Short SongsMike Gentry MusicDave Boutette and Kristi Lynn Davis, The Junk Monkeys, Be Bop DeluxePaul McCartneyWarren Haynes and Railroad EarthKaryn OliverLuke Winslow-KingTosha Owens (Tosha Owens Music), Jc & The DisciplesKaren NashBob Malone, Bobby Pennock, Amy Petty, The Turnback, Dave Keeney and Sofia Hanifi (Johnny Williams), Allan ThomasChris Richards and the SubtractionsLatvian RadioBark’s Wagon TalesSamantha FishJanie Next Door – Jane Christison, new music from ShwizZ (Their album cover for “ShwizZ” II is the top one in the banner.), and Dirt Road Sweetheart (Nora Jane Struthers and Alan Struthers) (Their album cover for “Rose From My Heart” is the bottom one in the banner.), Jim McCartyJohn Mayall with Joe BonamassaDAVY KNOWLESSugar Snow, and maybe more!!!

REMEMBER: IT”S A FOUR HOUR SHOW!!!

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