Phil’s Faves: Albums, October 21, 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, October 21, 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!

Let’s Go Stompin’ on “Prime Time Theme Attic,” Monday Night, 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

So what is stompin’?

Beats me.

I always think of it as something from the swing era, where the music’s so lively that you have to get up and dance! But then, I listen to “Stompin’ at the Savoy” by Benny Goodman (pictured lower right corner in the banner), and it’s so reserved that I feel I could sit it out if I want to.

So that can’t be it.

But for some reason, the term “stomp” keeps showing up in music, even as recent as this year! And it doesn’t seem to favor a certain style of music either.

So I am baffled, but we’ll consider it a going out for an evening of music and dancing to whatever you want. You know. Tie one on!

I’ll play some stompin’ music on Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PM EDT, as well as this week’s “Top 9 at 9:09” albums!

Songs by artists on the show should include Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line, Dustbowl Revival, Bill Monroe, Nile Rodgers and Chic (pictured in the lower left corner of the banner), The Prefab Messiahs, Nick Urb, Dave Caruso Music, Young Statues, Vandenberg’s MoonKings, The Brother Brothers, Olivia Millerschin, Ten Years After – Band (picture in the upper left corner of the banner), Tosha Owens, Riverdales, Bark’s Wagon Tales, Billy Brandt & Sarana VerLin, Katherine Moller, Stillwell-Country MUSIC, RB Stone, Tom Curless, and more!!!

Come on 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 “stompin’t” link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use Tune In Player or RadioFM to stream it.
