jonathan speaks for all of us.he charms,disarms,informs,delights,and,in the end,its his show. he makes the music work.this is not an elevator- its a real,live man,his life,his personality,his style,all he brings to the microphone.
to ask him to talk less is insulting and ignorant. obviously this is a cultural gap- you have to have experienced what we have,Americans,that is,to get this show.

I am also trying to find the playlist for this afternoon (around 1:30).
Where is it?

My namesake in Harrison, or anyone else, please advise: did you find an actual playlist for this segment now playing? I clicked back and forth and found exhaustive lists up until noon, but then nothing except a link, which then links back to the same page. Rrrrrr. One of those web things...

What I'm looking for is the stunning song by a male vocalist, slow, incantatory, unlike anything I've heard on this channel, with the line about ambition, etc. being 'handcuffs on the soul, my friend'... ending with 'my lake of sacred waters'...

It was on at about 2:40 today, give or take.
Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me.

That was a lovely medley, rather melancholy, but lovely. Thanks.

Hello Jonathan. Lovely show this afternoon. I do wish that you'd consider posting a playlist simultaneously with the broadcast.
Thank you for your wonderful programs.

We have been listening to your show since the great old days of WNEW. Your knowledge of the music equal to none.

You have enlarged our musical repetoire by introducing us to Tierney Sutton and Cyrille Aimee, whom we hope to see back in New York. However, have you forgotten Buddy Greco?

We are so glad that you have found this home on NPR.

thanks!

Hello Jonathan, A word about Shirley Horn's rendition of Too Late Now. Without a doubt, one of my all time favorite songs; I have it in iTunes by 23 different singers, from "Nancy" to Bing Cosby. Her tempo was painful to hear & though I know the lyrics backwards & forward, I could hardly keep the song together in my mind. I know Ms. Horn's work, having 61 of her songs on my hard drive. It was so slooow...I was in my car at the time & my arm kept moving to the dial, for relief. Only my love for the song & out of respect for you prevented me from changing stations. I had to get that off my chest, so I can continue to listen to you for the next three hours. Thanks for what you do & continue doing it for as long as you desire. I will be here! Thanks, Walter
