So, for those of you like me who don’t care about some stupid ball coming down on TV, what will you play tonight? (Or maybe already are in Asia.)
Tomorrow I will watch the broadcast of the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert.
a New Year tradition since I was a small child
In honor of Christine, Fleetwood Mac “Don’t Stop”
Hadn’t thought about it, since this ceased being a thing for me around the same time birthdays did. But now that you mention it:
Natch. Goes without sayin’.
Then I was reminded of this moody one by my former bandmate Ralph Covert:
Hosting a party tonight so probably 80’s hits LOL.
I’m a very high class guy, and usually on New Year’s Eve I would be ringing out the old year with some exquisitely tasteful music This year, New Year’s Eve falls on a Saturday, so I will ring out the old with some classic, Saturday night, TV viewing. Svengoolie is showing another cinema great, “Earth vs. Spiders”.
Like I said, I’m a very high class guy. (Did I mention the spider is REALY big)?
Yeah love J to Z! One of my favorites
Living within a stones throw of Navy Pier, I usually head outside for the best fireworks show in Chicagoland … by far. Looks like we’re going to get rained on if the forecast holds up. Rats! Come midnight, the plan is to stream a comfort movie and consume my favorite alcohol. In the interest of maintaining peace with my shared wall neighbors, the rig stays off.
Svengoolie! That rocks. Berwyn!!!
I am now working my way through this article and playing some of my favourites
(There are a few I think are missing, but most of the “classics” are here.
This is one of many reasons why paying the annual BBC “TV Licence”* is worth it, even though I watch almost no TV )
* Payment is mandatory for anyone watching live TV in the UK (it’s less than a Netflix sub) and it funds the BBC. There is a large and growing movement in the UK to “Defund the BBC” for some or other foolish reasons.
Very interesting. Missed that. Will check it out!
Otherwise you might end up with American tv!
Ironically we do get a lot of US TV over here (I think the better shows for the most part) but the BBC’s Radio output (and vaaassssttt library of original sessions and recordings) are what does it for me
Yeah, you don’t get the other crap that doesn’t make it over there! Although I don’t even know what TV means these days since there’s so much streaming.
BTW there is no equivalent to BBC R3 in the US (not that I’ve found in my 42 years here). It’s a National treasure. And Radio 4 with its vast variety of programs.
Depending on our dog and possibly another who shall not be named, this may be in stereo for me. Win!
