Playlist for Feb. 11, 2018: Hearts And Flowers And....somebody stuff that dove!

So it's that hearts and flowers time again: The Valentines Edition of 2 On The Aisle. My, how the winter is passing by! Not. But tis the season to speak (and choose playlists) of Love.

To prevent toooooo much tooth decay, I have, in the past, laced said Broadway At Its Best VD editions with plenty of arsenic to go along with the chocolate truffles.  Hard centers disguised in creamy surrounds. But I have been known to go too far. DJ Jeff Harris once came into the studio, readying for his show, and said "who broke YOUR heart into a million pieces?" So to prevent toppling into "I Hate Men"-ness, I've attempted an nice balance between the ooey-gooey and the acerbic. A plethora of love in the titles of these babies, at least, so if you can judge a song by its cover...there'll be plenty of love on the air (waves).

So that means everything from Lovesick to You're Not Sick, You're Just In Love. I'm In The Mood for it, but I Can't Be IN it. It Didn't Do Right, but It's The Reason.  It's Done Me Wrong, I'm Through With It, but it's Fit, Good For Anything That Ails You, and I'm A Prisoner of it. There Must Be Something Better! There Ain't! Whew.

Join me Sunday, Feb. 11th (AND a re-broadcast come Friday, Feb 16th, at 4pm on Swing & Blues Radio) for this many-faceted take on Broadway's Number One Emotion. You bring the candy.

P.S. I like YELLOW roses. :)
