Playlist For Sunday, March 26, 2017: Let's Make Some Moola

 So even though I still see snow out there (brown, disgusting, rock-like) mixed with old grass and mud and leftover pieces of my roof (long story. Yeah, it sort of blew off.), it seems to be "Spring!" Why is everyone so ga-ga about this season? I find it the ugliest. Until it really takes hold, it's one big tease. 50 degrees one day, 25 the next. The clock's been changed so you have until 7:30pm...to do what? Shiver, for the most part. Wear your winter coat over your Easter dress (when I was 8, okay?), snow boots over your patent leathers (well...yes, I still do that), hide eggs in snow drifts and pretend you like peeps. Curse the lion. Long for the lamb.

And another harbinger (read: Temptress, Tease, Temporal Salivator) is the Jazz 90.1 Spring Pledge Drive. This one I have to get behind. Because without Jazz 90.1, jazz music dries up like an old fig in this ROC.  And 2 On The Aisle, too...I mean, 2.  Zippo, nada, defunct. So we really need your help.

I've brought back the Broadway Blender for this show, filled it with smash hits and oft-requested goodies, just to put everyone in a mirthy, moola-ed mood. Be a Big Spender, folks, and keep the jazz juice flowing. Temper that March blast, let a warm waft breeze in and melt your heart. Into giving. :)
