More accordion monkey business

Tonight and every Thursday at 8:00 on WIOX radio. This evening’s broadcast includes such unlikely bedfellows as the accordion in dance music, techno, and house, a special musical tribute to our bloated, boorish chief executive and a look at the spectacular career of the real Tuesday Weld.

Weird Al, Bonnie and Susan tonight!

Weird Al as a lad. The accordion just looks bigger, because he’s still a tyke.

Unfortunately, we were unable to find pictures of Bonnie and Susan from that era, so we’ll have to settle for a contemporary shot of the girls (with an unknown friend):

From the profane to the sacred . . .

It’s an itinerary that we trace, judiciously and effortlessly, almost every week on In Heaven There Is No Beer.

It’s Spring: the birds are singing, streams are whispering and storms are brewing.  Meanwhile, on the liturgical calendar Mary, the mother of God, holds sway.  We cover all that and more tonight—from the accordion babes, Vivaldi, and the local tick infestation to the transcendence of the Regina Coeli.

Mea Culpa

Mea culpa. mea culpa, mea maxima culpa . . .

For I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word and deed.  Last week’s playlist was naughty, dirty, salacious, scabrous, you name it.

But that was then.  This week, we’re all sweetness and light, with music as pure as the driven snow.   Songs about baby animals (aren’t they cute!) songs by, for and about children (aren’t they cute!) and songs about the Blessed Virgin Mary.
