Radio Deluxe, famous for its double play-play-plays, this week features triple plays. John & Jessica’s favorite artists singing favorite songs, three times in succession, throughout the show. It begins with Peggy Lee-Lee-Lee and works its way through Tony, Ella Nat, Mel, Billie, and Frank, with a few single plays to round it all out.
It’s Super Bowl weekend and John & Jessica are excited, not only because of Sunday’s big game, but because of what is coming right behind. Pitchers and catchers report February 13th and then baseball spring training is underway! So this week, John calls songs about baseball, in addition to his favorite football song. No real preparation, but a weekend celebration; it’s all here on Radio Deluxe.
John is about to leave to perform in Japan and then return just in time to go jazz cruising through the Caribbean with Jessica. But just before they go, they record music and conversation in their deluxe living room in the good old USA.
It’s the first weekend of 2018, and although the new year is less than a week old, it seems like it’s been around a lot longer. That’s probably because so many more events are now packed into every news day. John & Jessica, however, are trying to help you reach a more comfortable pace. It helps when they play relaxing songs, many of which take you back to an earlier, simpler, more deluxe time.
This weekend takes us to the very edge of the new year, a time for celebration, for melancholy, for looking back and looking forward. John & Jessica have found songs that compliment all those feelings, and they serve them up with delicious food, fine bubbly, and sentimental conversation about old friends like Keely Smith. Happy New Year from Radio Deluxe!
Christmas Eve will arrive before this weekend ends, so we wish you a long, merry, musical, holiday weekend. And John & Jessica, always quick to get in the Christmas spirit, are presenting a fine assortment of meaningful and merry melodies.
We thank you for joining the party - and indeed for making it possible! We very much appreciate the support you have given us through the past months years. Happy holidays to all!
John & Jessica have trimmed the tree, done their shopping, attended the annual Christmas Party for the Broadway elites, and now they’re planning their holiday menus. This week Christmas music, theater music, and good old standard-issue deluxe music are all here on Radio Deluxe.
