Playlist for Sunday, October 23, 2016: Saving you a seat...and a slice!

Well, we have a lot to celebrate. Four years ago this week, 2 on the Aisle began...yup, just 4 years ago, terrified, hyperventilating, shaking in my "stilettos", I stood in front of that microphone and pushed a button. And the rest is far from history!  Anyway, there's that. Then it was my birthday (again!!! every year???) this week, and I am (again!!!) officially as old as dirt, so I've milked that into several parties/free dinners/toasts/toast...and if you put those 2 things together, you get a 2 on the Aisle full of memories and favorites and connections and hidden meanings...just don't go all psychoanalytic on me, okay? It's Birthday Broadway, pure and simple.

But that's not all...we are happily continuing our Jazz 90.1 pledge drive, which I actually like doing, to tell the truth. People call you up! You get to talk to people who actually listen and like! That's a buzz...and I would LOVE you to call this Sunday, which will make it sort of like a birthday present. Yes, call and donate (like $5, $27.50...whatever!) and I will feel personally gifted.

So on tap...42nd Street (which I tried out for back in 1981) (did I get in the show?) (hmmmm....you tell me!!!), Pacific Overtures (which I used to play on my WalkMan while running the East River), French stuff (I still dream of a garret on the Seine, croissants and better wine), Judy, Marilyn, Angela, Shirley, and of course Elaine. Tune in, call, and "cake" for everyone!
