What to listen to this weekend...

  • Last night at 7:35 pm on WLIB 1190 Air America, REM's Michael Stipe chatted with Janeane Garofolo on "The Majority Report". (You could have even seen the show as a webcast if you signed up for Air America Radio Premium. Did he look like this?)
  • As I've mentioned before, you can indulge in the glorious sound of classic pop on AM Radio on a Saturday Night by tuning in Saturday Night Oldies with Mark Simone on 770 WABC between 6-10 pm... or if you crave more of a pre-WWII vibe, don't miss Danny Stiles' incredible Big Band Sounds show on WNYC-AM 820 AM between 8 and 10pm.
  • Too bad all that great oldies radio tonight (Saturday) has to compete against Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight (between 8 PM and Midnight on WFUV 90.7), because Vin (who I've also raved about here before) has on as his guest Ken Emerson, author of Always Magic in the Air: The Bomp and Brilliance of the Brill Building Era – the story of great pop songwriting teams such as Goffin & King, Bacharach & David, Mann & Weil, Leiber & Stoller, et al, and their early '60s home on Broadway and 49th. As a Burt Bacharach expert - fiend? - I will not be missing this. (I'm ashamed to admit I haven't devoured the book already...)
  • Tonight between 11PM and 1AM on WFAN 660, tune in to the second night of Tonight in Torino, Westwood One's 2-hour nightly recap of what's happening at the 2006 Winter Olympics, hosted by John Tautges and Rich Ackerman. (I plan on doing more of a write-up on Olympic radio coverage shortly... stay tuned. One doesn't think of WFAN fans as being all that interested in the Olympics... but maybe I'm wrong?)
  • Tomorrow (Sunday) at 10AM on WNYC-FM 93.9, you can hear On The Media, the consistently excellent NPR show on the weekly goings-on of news media; this weekend, host Brooke Gladstone is in Jerusalem, reporting on the Arab-Israeli conflict; one of the things she looks at is how the words used to report the ongoing crisis ("wall" or "barrier"? "Seperation" or "security"?) reveal worlds about the political viewpoint of whoever's doing the reporting.
  • Although they don't play nearly as much classic salsa as they used to (and too much reggaetron!), Polito Vega's Sunday afternoon institution, Salsa con Polito, still plays much great stuff - the kind of intoxicating stuff you hear booming out from the streets on New York City weekends - between 12 Noon and 8pm on La Mega 97.9. (Click here for a cool article about the history of Latin music on American radio.)

Steering clear of stress is a great way to keep your ringing in ears signs at a minimum, but a much better strategy is to figure out how to manage stress as it pertains up. I really like to step back and look at the problem like I had been a 3rd party, studying it and choosing if it's worthy of my ringing in ears acting up. It always isn't! [url=]Pro232rgram[/url]

Make sure to allow yourself lots of real, freshwater to obtain crystal clear, healthy, pimples-cost-free pores and skin. You don't have to spend a fortune on bottled water! Actually, it's better in the event you don't. Get a good drinking water purifying pitcher and just detoxify your plain tap water. In this way, you may have a good amount of new, 100 % pure drinking water at a extremely low charge. Consuming lots of 100 % pure normal water will cleanse your body and help clean up your acne breakouts. [url=]matgjmny[/url]
