President's Day seemed like the ideal day for a "funny music" show, so do your patriotic duty and listen and hopefully laugh at it all.

A Doors tribute today on AnalogPlanet Radio occasionally sourced from original pressings but mostly from Analogue Productions' 45rpm box set. If you are hesitant to purchase it but love The Doors, better not listen! From the first note of "Touch Me" you'll easily hear what a great job Bruce Botnick and the late Doug Sax did with these fragile tapes.

Today's AnalogPlanet WFDU HD2 radio show consists of songs about infidelity and cheating. It covers most musical genres, which demonstrates that people cheat regardless of their musical preferences! Whether or not you have cheated, I think you'll dig the songs about it by artists who may or may not have themselves cheated.

AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer made sure to be home from C.E.S. 2017 in time to do a live radio show today, January 9th, about David Bowie, . It's the day after Bowie's birthday and the day before his death.

Please enjoy this year's AnalogPlanet Radio Christmas show. It contains some very familiar and many unfamiliar (to most listeners) secular Christmas songs (and one Hanukah song).

This has been a year in which hitting yourself on the head hard with a hammer seems like a reasonable activity, but rather than do that, we've produced a radio show in which everyone else is doing the hitting but not on the head!

The idea was to produce a show exclusively from old, gnarly-sounding 45 played back on a modest turntable to truly reproduce how "Boomers" heard their music at home. "Cleaned up" and sterilized on CD is just not the same. Then came the grim news that both Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell had passed away.

Today's AnalogPlanet Radio Show makes a great soundtrack for tonight and tomorrow. All of the songs are either obliquely or directly political. Many are Rorschach test type tunes that can be taken "either way" while others are clearly targeted.

Perfect for playing tonight when the kids come Trick-or-Treating! Includes a tribute to the late John Zacherle and includes excerpts from his Philly and New York television shows. Enjoy! (Picture: John Zacherle and me, meatpacking district 1980 something or other).

"Bob Dylan" stops by the WFDU-HD2 studios to talk with AnalogPlanet editor "Michael Fremer" about his Nobel Prize for Literature and his career. The "two" spin records and Bob recollects leaving Hibbing, MN for Minneapolis, Chicago and then New York City.

Today's AnalogPlanet radio show is mostly sourced from a cassette mix tape I made in the mid-seventies. I pulled it out of a box and transferred it to CDs for use in my Pilates class after the others in the class complained about what my iPhone shuffle program dredged up, which often included dark Scott Walker songs.

October third's AnalogPlanet radio show was an all-Rolling Stones radio show that directly compared original American London and UK Decca mono pressings with the new The Rolling Stones in Mono ABKCO box set (one comparison included the mono first album in the ABKCO stereo box set).

This week’s show features songs about dreams. Unbelievably, the library does not contain either “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics or “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright. While “Dream” by The Everly Brothers was supposed to be included, an editing error omitted it as you’ll hear. Due to time issues, there are a few more than usual digital clips for which I apologize.
