Playlist For Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018: Onward into the brink, with long underwear.

So the New Year's Eve 2 On The Aisle was a bust, and my apologies all around for that. The weather (along with a Comedy Of Errors snow plowing job that didn't, then DID, come off!) precluded me from getting to the station. That show is now neatly tucked away in a drawer til NEXT New Year's Eve, though I admit to stealing a couple of gems from it for this week's show. (If you steal from yourself, is that still a crime?)

A few white-knuckled driving experiences have cowed me into becoming a stay at home, hunkered-down DJ these last couple of days, hence the ON TIME playlist and the ON TIME blog entry. Don't get used to it. When the mercury spurts to 55, I will be on my bike and unavailable for great lengths of time, with Broadway neatly tucked away in a drawer. (As you can tell, I have thousands. Of drawers. BTW, how do YOU pronounce "drawer"?)

But in-keeping with January back-at-it-ness fortitude, this Sunday we've got the perennials, the Christmas cacti that thrive on complacency, the wacko themes (ROCKS?? Really? Sorry in advance for The Ritz Roll And Rock), and my girlfriends (Elaine, Julie and Angela) to help me thaw out errant appendages in this polar zip code of mine. A little Chess by Le Jazz Hot fire will also help. We'll even Feed The Birds, cuz how do they keep toasty in this froze-zone if not with internal nutrient-fed boilers??? Just don't make me sit on the steps of St. Paul's to do it!!!
