Hello world!

Welcome to TURNTABLETUESDAYS!! This is a music blog with a gimmick built into the title: every Tuesday I will recommend a recording for your listening pleasure. It could be anything, from any era of popular recorded music. If your record collection runs from ABBA to ZAPPA you might get a kick of it. I have been listening to music for nearly five decades, with the intensity of a curator, and have regretted not sharing my passion…until now. To quote CHARLIE PARKER, “now’s the time.” I will cullĀ  a lot from the past but not entirely abandon the present. Hopefully I will surprise you with some of the selections. I’m not afraid of populist choices, nor more underground ones. I love nearly every type of music, except for rap/hip hop/laptop pop. Yet I listen to enough of that to offer comments that I hope are insightful and from a more unique perspective than you’ll encounter on PITCHFORK or STEREOGUM.

I will also provide frequent comments on contemporary pop culture, including books and movies. My opinions will not be politically correct and I will never apologize for them, even if I go after one of your sacred cows. This is a blog of ideas, and while I do not plan on becoming an agent provocateur in the days/weeks/months/years to (hopefully)come, I will defend my right to type them out. One last quote, from Joan Didion if you dig, “play it as it lays…”
