The Letter M

(aired 2/25/11)

the letter M

Mangoes, melodies, mittens, magnolia, moustaches, making merriment. Mamma mia, this letter is magnetic! Today’s show topic was chosen rather last-minute, so I didn’t get the pleasure of collecting your song suggestions. Perhaps I should do a part 2 sometime in the future?

After I chose this theme for the letter “M,” I realized by total chance, it was almost exactly one year ago that I did a similar show — for the letter “F” — broadcast February 19, 2010. What a fabulously funny coincidence! Or maybe I should say that it’s a magical miracle.

There was an unexpected power outage in the studio halfway through the show, making the whole computer/broadcasting system go down for a few minutes. Luckily we were able to go back on the air, and the system still saved my recording of the segment. So I just spliced together the two pieces into one (below).

May you make marvelous merriment out of today’s music…
