February has arrived; and with it, thoughts of love and romance bloom as Valentine's Day approaches. Do I hear the faint beating of Cupid's wings outside my window? No, it's probably just a pigeon, as usual.
In any case, as is our long-standing tradition, Pilsner's Picks presents a February bouquet of love songs. They range, as always, from the sublime to the ridiculous— and we leave it to the listener to decide…Continue

As another year winds down, I wind up the old Victrola again— with the December edition of Pilsner's Picks!

Well, gang, when we last saw Pilsner Panther, he was lost in the trackless wastes of the internet, blinded by the lack of a monitor due to a power supply blowout— gadzooks!
So there was no October playlist, and I hadn't missed a single month since the Panther Brewing Company was launched way back in 2001, as a feature page on someone else's vintage comedy film website. Eventually, I spun it off on its own, which is boring old story that I don't care to go…

Last month at this time I said that I was "sweating it it out," but that was nothing! Right now where I live, it's a hundred and eight degrees, breaking all existing local temperature records.
Panthers, however, are used to tropical and jungle climates, so I've still managed to perspire through preparing a September playlist. Some of these tunes might make you feel like shaking your jelly roll, but I'm just going to sit very still and drink some chilled…

Pilsner's Picks has both delirium and hallucinations this month— which might have something to do with the consistent 90-degree days we've been having in this neck of the woods. In any case, here's some hot music to go with the hot weather.

We temporarily interrupt President The Donald's endless tweeting to present— the July Pilsner's Picks!
The ol' Panther hardly ever gets any requests, but recently there was one for Jimmy Durante, so the immortal Schnozzola is in the mix this month, along with the usual eclectic selections (or selectic eclections, if you prefer). "Hot cha cha cha cha!"

Who needs Mariah Carey when you can have Bessie Smith? Who never lip-synched anything, by the way— the technology didn't exist in her time. But I have a feeling that she wouldn't have done it even if it had been possible.
Anyway, as 2016 is flushed deservedly down the old commode, here's the New Year Edition of Pilsner's Picks.…

Okay, so I'm not an elf, I'm usually not jolly, and as for that other part— never mind! Ho ho ho.

This is of course the famous Leap Day; and as everyone knows, people born on February 29th have only one birthday every four years, which is why they live four times longer than the rest of us (?!). In any case, I've stopped leaping just long enough to post the March edition of Pilsner's Picks:

As usual, and I don't know how— someone has been downloading my stuff before I even make the announcement that the new program is up. Being suitably flattered by this, I give you (drum roll, please), the link:
If none of this music is romantic and sentimental enough, I'll have to try again next year.
Okay, Christmas is over, and now comes the rest of the winter that isn't any fun at all... You freeze your tuchis, and for WHAT? With that in mind, here's some hot music to keep your house (or hovel) warm.

The more I watch them, the more I realize it:
Not that I'd want to be personally "scooped" into a theater or shot to somewhere in Asia with a giant six-shooter! The cool and elegant soundtrack music by Vincent Lopez and his band is just great... it swings, but in a kind of subdued manner.
Vincent Lopez was a veteran bandleader by…Continue
Just check out all these beautifully designed early 20th century machines in action, especially the Moviola. As a bonus, we also get to see the Sound Effects Department and the soundtrack music composer at work.

Since the Holiday Season now apparently starts sometime in August and I'm late, I might as well get this over with:
At least I can guarantee that the November Picks won't rot your teeth... but the first one might make you want to boogie, man!
I haven't added anything to the old Musical Morgue in over a year, since it's already just about my whole inventory of spooky and spooky/silly music, so there's nothing more to add. However, for those of you innocent souls who've never descended into this stygian, eldritch crypt of unspeakable horror (and similar Lovecraft-type locutions), here you go:…Continue

For those of you who missed the perpetually and predictably punctual Picks on the first of the month, I'm back from my extended vacation, so here we go. You won't have to guess where I went when you see the playlist... http://pilsnerspicks.blogspot.com/

Even the 30's tunes are in a 20's style this month. Don't ask me why, I've just been in a 20's mood lately and I can't explain it. Maybe it's the screwy 1929-type behavior of the stock market! So put on your raccoon coats, crank up the Stutz or the Duesenberg or the Pierce-Arrow, and when you get to the "jernt," the password is "swordfish." Tell 'em Pils sent yez.
