    The Lady Plays

    The Lady Plays

    “The Lady Plays,” is Robin's tribute to the Piano Queen, Marian McPartland. Robin taped a one-hour segment on Marian’s program, NPR’s Piano Jazz, twelve years ago, when her first book, Piano Girl, was published. “Marian’s joy rubs off on me. Look at her go—here’s a ninety-year-old woman playing piano the way she wants to. She has grown into her music and stayed young because of it. She listens, she responds, she encourages the rest of us to keep going. Marian doesn’t need magic, luck, or soothing words to keep her plane in the sky, because she’s the pilot. If there’s a better role model for a musician, I don’t know who it is."

    Olives, Almonds, Sauvignon Blanc: The Musician's Guide to Losing (and Finding) Those Last Five Pounds

    Olives, Almonds, Sauvignon Blanc: The Musician's Guide to Losing (and Finding) Those Last Five Pounds

    For over five decades Piano Girl Podcast host Robin Goldsby has lost and gained the same five pounds about four times a year. Road trips, evil catering, unidentifiable bar food, vending machine Twix bars, buffalo wings, airplane pretzels, stale ham sandwiches, chocolate donuts, and, yes, those community bowls of goldfish crackers—as a musician Goldsby has survived most of these things. For better or worse, here are some of her favorite diet phases, many of them career-related.

    Astoria

    Astoria

    Step lively now. Back in the eighties, during her busiest years as a Manhattan Piano Girl, Robin Goldsby had a subway routine. She made her bridge and tunnel trip thousands of times in the fifteen years she lived in New York City. She says: "I never tired of the view from Queensboro Plaza, the way the serrated Manhattan skyline taunted the humble Queens horizon. The two parts of my life—where I worked and where I lived—remained separated by a yawning moat of fast-moving, murky water."
    Robin Meloy Goldsby, host of The Piano Girl Podcast, reveals the comedies, tragedies, and mundane miracles witnessed from the business side of the Steinway. 
    "Astoria" features the track "Crossings" from Goldsby's album Home and Away.
