"The Male Animal" February 27, 2009

(Week 152)

This RADIOLA! is an unflinching musical safari among the male humans that prowl the asphalt plain. (I'll try not to point, since I realize in so doing I'll still have three fingers aimed at myself.) Most of what you'll observe is benign, though it might not do to linger.

On a much happier note, I've included a few selections from the new CD dedicated to the singing of British crooner Val Rosing. This CD was compiled and produced this year by Rosing's son-in-law, Bruce Kaplan, and features a delightful variety of selections by this undeservedly forgotten vocalist. And I found songs that actually fit into this show's theme.

Tune in Friday at 8 PM Eastern to WHCL (with streaming here). The program will be uploaded to my Live365 station soon.
