Catamount Community Radio - March 17, 2019

My FacePage blurb for today's show:

In Santiago, the stray dogs are so smart ... they never wander out into traffic. In fact, they sometimes go into the metro, slip under the turnstiles, head down to the platform, and ride the train a few stops before getting out and going back up to the street. They also know where to find a free wi-fi connection so they can tune their radios to wwcufm.com, which is not easy without opposable thumbs. Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5. Bringing the cover contest back today.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Not sure where to rank Sunday in the worst/best days of the week. On the one hand, it's radio day, and then relative freedom after that ... On the other hand, there's the dread of Monday kinda lingering. And gloomy Monday is not merely a cliché; it's the busiest day of the week, with all kinds of responsibilities piled on top of each other.

In other news, X.Ray is still dead.

Brought the Cover Contest back today.

1. Two versions of the tune, one by a band called "Lettuce," the other by Sly Dunbar. What's the title and who is it by?

a) Slippin' into Darkness
b) War

2. Marcus Miller plays a tune called "Free." Whose tune is it? - Deniece Williams's

3. Marcus Miller plays a tune. What's the title, and who is it by?

a) Frankenstein
b) Edgar Winter

4. Charlie Hunter plays a tune. Title and original artist?

a) Come as You Are
b) Nirvana

It looks like Donna/Jeff edge Jim Dandy. Mary Ellen LOSES!


1. Sir Roland Hanna – Come Sunday
2. Merle Haggard – Stop the World & Let Me Get Off
3. Anita O’Day – What a Little Moonlight Can Do
4. Sun Ra – State Street
5. John Mayer – Who Says

Shit X.Ray Burns has said

In lieu of finishing up the previous entry, I'm just gonna hit you with some X.Ray Burns quotations. I've copied these down over the last couple of years while listening to the show.

------

“I could have had it all, Jones.”

"Can we make out later? ... After I'm finished with this glazed doughnut?"

"The men's room floor art ... You have to bend over until the light is just right, and you'll see what I'm talking about."

“I’m not afraid of terrorists, but I am afraid of spacemen.”

"I love a diablo sandwich, and I don't even know what it is."

JONES: What's it like to be happy?
X.RAY: It's fleeting, Jones.

"I haven't had many good brushes with death."

"Painkillers are actually not so much fun when you use them for pain."

"I'm looking at this girl, who I would like to have as my own, but she's got Billy Joel all over her ... Cigarette breath, bourbon."

"I've got you under my sink."

X.Ray as a cop: "I'd tase you for being a jerk off."

JONES: Did you ever have an imaginary friend?
X.RAY: No. I would rather have an imaginary enemy. Gives me something to focus on.

"My next investment is a pressure cooker ... you can cook a chicken in eight minutes. If you don't like it, you can always turn it into a bomb."

"Ain't nothing easy about listening to REO Speedwagon."

"I don't mind a good cliché, just not 40 times a minute."

"I'm not eatin' Cap'n Crunch with those freakin' Crunch Berries."

"I'm an old, burned-out husk of what I once was."

"You got a bald spot? Get a spray can full of hair."


JONES: How do you judge a man's life?
X.RAY: By the stains he left on his chair.


"I knew Bill Kelly was here because I opened the door and I heard a sound like rustling leaves."


"Guys like you and me, we're not fit to reproduce."

JONES: My dad saw Little Richard in a truck stop.
X.RAY: In the men's room or performing?


JONES: I was looking for the Skynyrd documentary.
X.RAY: What's that Called, "Most of Us are Dead"?

"At this point I'm kind of relishing the rapid acceleration towards death. But when you're young and ya gotta lot of humpin' and drinkin' and stuff to do, you want things to last longer."

"What do you keep [in your locker], soiled laundry and broken dreams?"

"You can feel your pancreas shutting down ... but other than that, they're delicious."

“Alexa, send Jonesy money for heroin.”


JONES: [on shortwave] You would have no listeners.
X.RAY: People listen to this.


"... next thing you know, I'm in bed with the cable guy, watching ESPN."


"I was trippin' balls in Reykjavik ... and I met Walter Mondale.


"You should probably go and see the authorities if your parents are in the IBJ."


"...Shaving Ryan's privates."

"... Snow White and the Seven Deadly Sins."

"The best thing about the Passaic fish is that they start to cook as soon as they hit the air."

"I'm the dark cloud. OK, sunshine?"

"It tastes like a big sugary pizza donut."

"I live well, with the exception of my health."

"Several people have come down to kill me over the years, but I won them over with my charisma and my charm."

I have a lot to say; and I'm going to say it I hope, just not today. I've already spent five hours with dead X.Ray today, and that's enough. So maybe Tuesday or Thursday (my light work days), I'll finish the entry. the playlist is complete, but songs 16 - 21 are likely in the wrong order, since I was too busy thinking about what to say to keep my playlist current.

So, I'm sitting here listening to Glen Jones on WFMU, as I do every Sunday between noon and three, and that's not a tear in my eye, just some dust or something. Glen is making public the news that X.Ray has advanced lung cancer. I knew already, because of social media, but listening to Glen reminisce about their friendship over the years is pretty poignant.



A couple themes today, the first one coffee. There was this Seatbelts tune that I lost when I got my computer "refreshed" (IT lingo for "replaced"). Found it anew yesterday.

- Would you like to have some coffee with me some time?
- NO.
- C'mon, just some tea or something?
- NO.

Then, Lefty Frizzell, with "Cigarettes and Coffee Blues" and then Sarah Vaughan with "Black Coffee." Jim Dandy says the tunes reminded him of days in a cafe in Mancelona, him probably with a pop and some french fries, and his mom drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes.

Joni Mitchell was the other theme of the day. Sent "Urge for Going" out to Donna, then a bunch of covers and other nonsense.

Played a Thai tune from probably the seventies that my brother hooked me up with some years on one of the many eclectic CDs he burned for me. I imagine it was about the joys of romantic love, and also about the pain it causes.

1. Charles Lloyd & Jason Moran – Pretty Girl
2. Dorothy Love – Ninety-nine and a Half
3. Ray Chalres – instrumental
4. Seatbelts – Black Coffee
5. Lefty Frizzell- Cigarettes and Coffee Blues
6. Sarah Vaughan – Black Coffee
7. Joni Mitchell – Urge for Going
8. RDM w/ Aquila Rose – Big Yellow Taxi
9. Prince – A Case of You
10. Mark Witfield, Christian McBride, Nicholas Payton - Chameleon
11. David Bowie – Word on a Wing
12. Bar-Kays - Knucklehead
13. Sly & Robbie – Big Yellow Taxi
14. Vulfpeck – Newsbeat
15. Henri Guedon – Bilongo
16. Gregory Isaacs Remixed – Nine to Five
17. Christian Scott – Rewind That
18. The Pretenders – My City Was Gone

I'm lazy ... that's a well established fact, but I do like to do things. I just want to choose myself what I'm going to do. Yesterday, instead of doing my necessary work, I spent my afternoon preparing for this radio show, digging through the piles and piles of CDs I have in my office in search of forgotten gems ... and Eureka! I found quite a few.

Here's a memory. I went to a conference in Philadelphia but stayed with some friends before and afterwards in New York. I remember drinking this big imported beer on the train and reading a book about Sly and the Family Stone's "There's a Riot Going On" album. I can still remember the quality of the sunlight on the other side of the window that late December day.

If I were a good sax player, I would play like David Murray, with that inside / outside style and robust tone.

The first time I ever went to NYC was with a bunch of my college buddies back in the early eighties. One day we were in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, swimming in the ocean, trying to avoid the floating sewage, watching the planes overhead on their to LaGuardia; you could see the statue of Liberty, dwarfed by the Twin Towers. I made the mistake of bringing a boom box. I was playing a cassette of Jr. Walker and the All Stars. These Jersey cats gave me a look like they were going to kill me. I turned that shit off quick, fast, and in a hurry. But anyway, we heard today a tribute to Jr. Walker by Don Byron.

Catamount Community Radio is not just free form, it is "Stone Free" form. One of my favorite Hendrix tunes; we listened to an alternate take.

Pérez Prado (as English speakers refer to him, as if his first name were "Pérez") was influenced by Igor Stravinsky in the arrangement of his horns .... Mambo, y'all!

"Deep Purple," the jazz standard, not the rock band.

"Down with Love":

Down with love
With flowers and rice and shoes
Down with love
The root of all midnight blues
Down with things
That give you that well-known pain
Take that moon
Wrap it in cellophane

A little Alexander Scriabin.

All that and more .... Catamount Community Radio, heard at 90.5 in Cullowhee, and from Pakistan to Michiganistan at wwcufm.com.

Catamount Community Radio - January 27, 2019

So, I'm walking out of the station today thinking, "well, that was average, or slightly below, but I'll take it." It just struck me as a little bland. But having typed up the playlist and reflected a little bit ... I suppose it was alright after all. I'll never know for sure, because the boom box ate the cassette tape onto which I was recording it and I chucked it...the tape, not the boom box ... I thought: maybe I'll head back up to the station and retrieve it from from the trash and see if I might maybe could rewind it, if only to listen to part of it. And if I do, I'll take my vacuum cleaner with me; that carpet in the studio hasn't been vacuumed since the days of the great Eastern Buffalo.

SNAFU - WWII slang for "Situation Normal, All Fucked Up."

"Girl Talk" - a tune by Neil Hefti with a little riff in it that I stole and incorporated into my tune "Hefti."

José Feliciano, saw him on TV recently. He looks just like he did back in the seventies.

My favorite tune of the day: Pearl Bailey's "I'm Lazy, that's All." It got me thinking, laziness has a stigma that it doesn't totally deserve. Our overlords, who want us to be as productive as possible, so that they can become as rich as possible from the fruits of our labors, want us to think of laziness as a personality defect ... But I think there is a certain wisdom in laziness. Doing something you want to do, and doing it enthusiastically is not laziness, but avoiding something you're not really crazy about is. You feel me? (not literally, please)

Diana Krall and Marc Robot. Diana Krall is a great singer and a great pianist, plus she's beautiful, but why do her album covers look like lingerie ads?



Matt Wilson's "Teen Town" - All tension, no release - genius?

We heard a cover of the James Bond theme, followed by, "the name is Lowe, Nick Lowe," a relatively spontaneous quip.

All that and other madness. Tune in next week or else .... or else nothing will happen.

I bookended the show with Raymond Scott, for no reason at all, other than that CD was sitting on my desk. He was a character, a pioneer of electronic music. Although my favorite stuff from his catalogue are the quintet recordings, which is what I played today.

Jim Dandy says it's like 10 below up in Northern Michigan, and his pipes are freezing ... Here it's sunny and nice, if windy and cold ... So you might as well stay inside and curl up with your radio and maybe a bottle of muscatel.

You know about cutting contests. One day, probably in the 1930s, the Harlem stride pianists were trying to outdo each other. First up, Willie the Lion Smith, with his cigar between his teeth. He was pretty hot. Next up, Jelly Roll Morton, who matched the Lion's intensity. Finally, it's James P. Johnson's turn. He had a stutter, so he tells Morton, "M ..m...move aside, Jelly, and I'll I'lll entertain... you." And he proceeded to mop up the floor with poor Jelly Roll.

Tomorrow is MLK Day, so I played a recording of King doing his "All, Here, Now" speech.

So I get this cryptic post on my FacePage. Karlyn writes "Erik Satie." I took that to be a request. So I played a number that I was familiar with for two reasons: first, it is on the soundtrack of a film by Derek Jarman. Over the top of the Satie, he says.

"...Jean Cocteau takes off his glasses, he looks about him with an indescribable meanness. He has black slip-on shoes, blue socks, grey trousers... The posters that plaster the walls above him have endless question marks, 'HIV/AIDS? AIDS? HIV? ARE YOU INFECTED BY HIV AIDS,' .... This is a hard wait. The shattering bright light of the eye specialist's camera leaves that empty sky blue after-image... The process is torture, but the result, stable eyesight, worth the price and the twelve pills I have to take a day ....as I left... I smiled at Jean Cocteau. He gave me a sweet smile back."

Second, about a year back, I was playing with Tyler and Michael, and as they played the very Satie piece, I got on the mic and started saying, "HIV? AIDS? HIV? AIDS?" Michael and Tyler were horrified, yet also amused. Not the kind of thing you do in a restaurant gig.

George Clinton writes about growing up in New Jersey back in the day. Wayne Shorter lived in the neighborhood:

"... The acts that really mattered were vocal acts: the Platters, Sam Cooke, those kinds of people. No one played in a band, really - jazz was too old, a kind of fogey music that we heard and appreciated but didn't exactly understand. I only really knew two people from the neighborhood who were trained musicians: Wayne Shorter and Larry Young, Jr. They were jazz players, though Larry also had a singing group called the Four Most. Wayne, a saxophonist who went on to play with everyone from Miles Davis to Art Blakey before founding Weather Report, was a couple years older than us. His playing sounded so strange, even when everybody started talking about how famous he was getting, as if it was beamed in from another dimension. We would hear him practice and we didn't process it at all. The way that horn sounded, we all thought it was busted."

So, I'm casually wasting my life reading the comment thread on a political blog, and people were citing Firesign Theatre. I didn't realize that people were familiar with that. Ensemble comedy to be listened to on headphones rather than in a stand-up situation. I'm going to do a multi-leveled radio show one day ... inspired by Firesign Theatre ... and then sit back at home with my coffee and listen to myself.

One of my ex-students drives a Ford Ranger pickup, with two enormous ladders on the top. I remember him as a very talented cartoonist, but pretty crappy at Spanish. I can't remember his name, but now I see him all the time in his truck, and I refer to him mentally as "Ladder Boy." I would never say it to his face, but I can't help thinking it. His truck, with the ladders, is parked outside my office at this very moment.

For some reason, my skipping and freezing-up CD problems have ceased. I don't know why. The CD problems was my pretext for abandoning the Cover Contest. Now, I no longer have that excuse, but for some reason I'm not feeling the reinstatement of the cover contest. Anyway, Dandy won't have to interrupt his cooking to write things down.

The show was good today, no problems with board-op. Some good quips. I record 90 minutes of the show every week on cassette and listen back once. For some reason I always look forward to listening to myself, critiquing myself doing radio; but also, curiously, I never want to listen back to a show twice. Once is enough.
