Phil’s Faves: Albums, March 3, 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 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.

WHFR Radiothon 2019

It’s almost that time of the year: WHFR Radiothon 2019!!!

If you are unfamiliar with Radiothon, it’s the one week that the mostly public financed station focuses on to raise funds to keep WHFR on the air.

Every donation is important!

There’s plenty of special events and guests that take place to entice listeners to donate.

I like to have an all star type of event and I’m doing two shows:

Monday night, April 8th, 8PM-10PM EDT and

Wednesday morning, April 10th, 10AM-12 PM EDT.

I would like to have studio help for each of those shows.

Other than that, if you are a musician and want to talk about your music, or someone else’s music, or maybe other things, please contact me.

Please send an e-mail to me at phil@philmaq.com or contact me through Facebook.

I look forward to your responses for a successful Radiothon!!!

Phil’s Faves: Songs, March 3, 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 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!

Special Guest Dan Sheehan on Monday Night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic,” 8PM-10PM EST!!!

Dan Sheehan (multiple Philby award winner) started the year off by releasing a new album. That would be an exciting accomplishment for any artist, but Dan Sheehan’s Tales from Earth Incorporated featured songs that chronicled how brutal corporations can be to citizens of the world as well as the planet itself.

Tonight, Dan will join me for an interview on tonight’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 8PM-10PM EST!!! Because of the interview, tonight’s weekly countdown will start earlier at 8:39.

To come up with ideas for music, sometimes artists refer to “finding their muse.” So their will be a short theme about muses!

Songs by other artists on the show will include Craig Moreau MusicWendy WebbLynne HansonThe Empty PocketsThe Pandys, Elliot Schneider, DarlingsideWeather McNabbAmy HelmBelle and SebastianChris Richards and the SubtractionsThe Black LipsKing Tuff, and more!!!
