A Circle of Sound / Music of Words

On Sat from 06:30 am EST to 08:00 am EST

A Circle of Sound is a show for early risers. If you like traditional and contemporary jazz, funk, soul and maybe a touch of new age and global music, then this show is for you.

alternating weeks with:

Music of Words – is Folk, Jazz, Soul and Rock with Spoken Word intermingled. There is an emphasis on meaningful/thoughtful lyrics. The show explores music and words to find where poetry and music can live and breathe together over the airwaves.

You never know whose voice you might hear emerge from your speakers; Dylan Thomas, Allen Ginsberg, Raymond Carver, Sylvia Plath, Joseph Campbell have all visited so far.

From time to time we will visit The Recollection Radio Show portion of the show, which is dedicated to the importance of music in our ever-changing lives. It is a testament to how music shapes and informs who we are and how we see our world. RRS interweaves personal recollections of songs along with playing the songs themselves.

Listeners can go to my website, https://recollectionradioshow.wordpress.com/ and fill the simple form out under the link “Be Part of the Show”. I will create my playlist using your memories and songs that spark them. The idea is to help foster an appreciation of how music matters to us and how it has been essential in shaping our understanding of love, life, dreams and wishes.

Let me help you start your weekend with great music and words married together for your enjoyment!



Though on-air requests are tough (I have to vet all tracks for FCC compliance), please comment track requests or listening suggestions here – I’m all ears!

Good Morning, John.
Sometimes the archives get a little messed up…. and I have accepted that… but I set my alarm especially early to catch your 10.27 show one more time before tosay’s show. But, alas, it was gone. Any fixing that? Long shot…because it was due to roll off later today anyway….oh well, one can always ask! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello again…what a beautiful show today!
I tried to call you after you played Pink Martini and Amy Grant.
Loved to hear a new tune by the former and cried all the way through Grown up Christmas List…( one of my very favorites forever) I must have needed that. Also โ€ฆ so good on you for sharing the tribute to Steve.
Is it next Saturday at 6:30, yet? Thank God for the archives… even if they have a few hiccups! ๐Ÿ˜‰
*** FYI… I called 5-6 times this morning… just rang and rang and rang. Phone issues maybe?***

Thanks John! Chuck was over the moon!
BTW… Carly Simon did ” Loving you is the Right Thing To Do”…
Have a wonderful week… and thanks for keeping the music playing.
