Catamount Community Radio - January 13, 2019

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.

Catamount Community Radio - January 6, 2019

I woke up late today, 8:36, but I made it. I was thinking, last night and this morning too, that I had nothing funny to say. DJ problem, right? But I probably came up with one or two quips ridiculous enough to make somebody at least smile.

I have been pretty lazy posting my playlists, but as of today I think I'm up to date.

Let's see, what happened today in my world of radio?

I played Conway Twitty and riffed about if he had a Twitter account. Twitty tweeting on Twitter, etc.

Faron Young, Apartment # 9 ... no my apartment is 2B ... 2B or not 2B?

Steely Dan had me riffing about band names ... Sometimes we can divine where they come from (e.g. "The Doobie Brothers"), but sometimes they are puzzling (e.g. "The Flaming Groovies") Well, it turns out that "Steely Dan" was from a William F. Burroughs novel, the Naked Lunch (which I have never read) ... it was the name of a dildo or strap-on. Both Jims, Kalkaska Jim and New York Jim, alerted me to that fact.

I talked about the blues and why they some sometimes seem a little tiresome ... The same cliches (I need some new cliches). But you gotta be grounded in the blues to go anywhere if you play jazz or rock. I always like to make fun of C.B. Roy, who has a blues show 8 p.m - 1 a.m. Sunday nights ... because he talks comically slow with strange accentuation ... I mimic - no, mock - him, but it's OK, because he's not listening. Blues, greens, oranges and purples.

Los Tucanes, "Jugo a la vida." The theme is basically hedonism. You want wine? ... here's wine... You want Vegas? here's Vegas, You want the beach, here's the beach, etc. So, heaven is like that for me. You want to chat with Elvis, you chat with Elvis; you wanna beat Tiger Woods at golf, you beat Tiger Woods at golf. But here's what I didn't say .. Even this Heaven would eventually get tiresome and you would prefer mere oblivion.

I'm writing this a few days after the fact, so my memory of the show might be a little sketchy. But I have the playlist written down, so everything will be OK.

I didn't do a show on November 11. I was too sick. Didn't do the usual Guadalupe Café music gig either. I had some sort of bad cold or light flu, not sure which since I didn't go to the doctor. What's the point of coughing and sneezing all over the place? The silver lining is that I cancelled my classes on Monday the 12th and spent the entire day in my bed, reading The New Yorker magazine. I get a fresh copy every week, but somehow I can never make it through, and I'm loathe to throw them away unread. So they pile up. I spent the whole day in bed reading the articles I wanted to read and, by the end of the day, probably recycled 20 issues or so.

Tuesday was "Couture Night" at the Mad Batter in Sylva. I was well enough to play and I had so much fun. I played some sax, sang a couple numbers and played bass guitar. We had Evan Martin on drums, over from Asheville; Michael on upright bass and guitar, Jeff on Guitar, and the Tyler on sax and keys.

Florence has been pretty non-eventful in Cullowhee. She's like snubbing us, a little drizzle for you, that's it.

Boy, I got pretty frustrated running the board today, with CD player 3 not being able to recognize CDs and CD players 1 &2, skipping and freezing up. Ive been having trouble for some time, and I have a feeling it's my CDs, not the CD players - although I'm not totally convinced - so a couple months ago I decided to buy a new external disc drive ... It hasn't really solved the problem. My latest theory: It's an Apple plot ... not that I can explain how it works.

Last week Jim Dandy won the cover contest, but this week three contestants all bunched together. Mary Ellen wins, with Donna in second place and Dandy third.
