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.

(Originally aired October, 2016) 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).

Today’s show lets you hear and compare original British and American mono Rolling Stones records with the new The Rolling Stones in Mono 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.

While the name of today’s show is “Peter, Paul & Mary”, it doesn’t feature any of that folk group’s songs. Instead, the songs are by artists whose name begins with either Peter, Paul or Mary. Also there are a few songs with Mary in the title and one, with a “Paul” name and a “Mary” in the lyrics (I’m sure you can figure out which that is!).

Here's a special three hour AnalogPlanet Radio WFDU HD2 tribute to the late Rudy Van Gelder that aired today. Below in the set list but not inserted in the list are the many segments of an on-air interview pianist/musicologist Ben Sidran conducted during the mid 1980's with Rudy Van Gelder used here with Sidran's permission.

Today's show theme is "Strings Attached". All of the songs feature strings though none of the artists or groups normally use them. There's jazz and rock.

AnalogPlanet Radio’s WDFU HD2 show today is all The Beach Boys—perfect for a scorchingly hot summer. And of course, all sourced from vinyl.

This week’s show marks the first anniversary of AnalogPlanet Radio. Hard to believe, but true!
