Dad Tribute

(aired 3/5/10)

Although I was originally intending to do a brand new theme this week, some unexpected circumstances have changed the plans. My dear father, John Seligman, had a heart bypass surgery yesterday, March 4th. I’m happy to report that it went well. To express love and support, today Maya’s Mix is a similar lineup to the Father show playlist that aired last June — with only a couple changes and new songs.

The best highlight was having my sister, Phoebe, join me in the studio for the broadcast. Together we celebrated my dad’s recovery with fun music. Thank you to everyone in his life for creating such positive support. We can now celebrate the beginning of a healing process towards a happy, healthy heart!

    Hiya Maya – I’m so happy you’re doing this show. John will really enjoy listening to it from the archives when he gets home. I’m sending waves and waves of love to you and Phoebe and especially to John. xoxoxoxoxo (p.s. I LOVE your music! BEST mixes ever!!)

    Lovely theme (no pun intended!). BTW “Chapin” has a correct pronunciation, as found at Name: Chapin at Inogolo.I just tuned in about 1/2 hour ago, and will catch up with the online stream later. My Dad loomed large in my life, and I miss him (lived to 91). Your Dad is now in the same club as Clinton and Letterman, but participation is optional. 🙂

    The Seligman sisters are very charming.
