Catamount Community Radio - July 21, 2019

The blurb:

"Time has a funny way of playing tricks on you. We all know it’s elastic and relative. My dog is six and thus each year of his life up to the moment is like 16.7% of his lifetime. I on the other hand have reached the august, ripe, young age of 56; therefore, each year of my life is a mere 1.8% of my existence. .167≠ .018. Ergo, time is relative. Quod erat demonstratum. This week I was robbed of 24 hours. It happened sometime between Tuesday and Thursday. Each day has 24 hours, therefore the accumulated time should have been 72 hours, if my mental math serves me. But of those 72, only 48 were granted to me, the other 24 vanished, or were seized by malevolent forces. All of a sudden, people on TV are saying, “I hope you have a nice Friday evening.” And I’m like, “it’s not Friday, it’s Thursday.” And this morning, Friday morning, all the Saturday morning radio shows are on. I did some mathematical calculations, and measured my coffee consumption, and it turns out science reinforces that it really is Saturday. But to me it’s Friday. And why is my own private reality somehow inferior to “scientific reality”? Answer me that. Anyway, just this once I’m going with science and I’m going to show up at the station tomorrow at around 9:50 for my “Sunday” morning show. 10-12. Catamount Community Radio, SUNDAY mornings at 90.5 FM in Cullowhee and thereabouts and streaming on the world wide web at wwcufm.com. Cover contest in effect."

Catamount Community Radio - July 14, 2019

Here's the blurb:

"I was listening to TV the other evening, more to the ads than to the shows, because I was interested in their rhetorical strategies. I didn’t get very far, but one thing I picked up on is the “most people believe that…” schtick. It goes like this: “Most people believe that X blah blah. Most people believe that Y blah blah. And most people also believe that Z blah blah. But the fact is that ¡ can help you with X, Y, and Z! blah blah.” This is very postmodern, this business of watching the ads and ignoring the shows, and the ensuing ennui and enervation cannot, or at least should not, be discounted. The Greeks called it abulia (βουλή). But Greek abulia couldn’t truly aspire to the status of the postmodern malaise of which we are currently victims. The Greeks didn’t have smart phones. Most people believe we are enveloped in a postmodern malaise. Most people believe that romance can fulfill you, give your life meaning, and provide you with contentment well into your golden years. Most people believe that radio is full of ads, cuteness, and REO Speedwagon oldies…. Fortunately, Catamount Community Radio is your antidote! It is clinically proven to be effective against heartbreak, inane radio, and post-modern ennui! And it’s FREE! I’m not going to ask you to donate so that you can get some hemp-hewn tote bag, or a chance to win a Volvo. And there are no ads. Sunday mornings, 10-12 at 90.5 FM, and streaming from Cullowhee right into your parlor at wwcufm.com. Oh yeah, that and a cover contest. We’ll see if Mary Ellen can defend."

Catamount Community Radio - July 7, 2019

Here's my blurb for today:

"I saw this rainbow; it looked like the pot of gold was somewhere around Tuckasegee, so I headed that way. There were the usual unicorns pooping soft-serve, go go boys getting their wings, but no pot of gold, just a big bin of dusty CDs, with a little note taped on it that said, “take me.” I thought, “this must be radio fodder!” I took them home and cleaned them with special CD wipes, and popped them in my boom box. Nothing but static, beeps and blips, the sound of breaking glass, and second-rate disco. I’m not ready or willing to go avant garde, so today Catamount Community Radio will be predictably unpredictable, as usual. No cover contest due to my tropical torpor. Sunday morning 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streaming at wwccufm.com."

Madrid Dialogue

A woman, probably fifty something and not at all dressed provocatively, comes up to me in the street, and the following exchange occurs.

Mujer: ¿Fumas?

Yo: Pues, no.

Mujer: ¿No tienes vicios?

Yo: Vicios sí tengo.

Mujer: ¿Te gustan las mujeres.

Yo: Sí, supongo que sí.

Mujer: ¿Hacemos el amor?

Yo: No, gracias.


Woman: Do you smoke?

Me: No.

Woman: So you don’t have vices.

Me: I do have vices.

Woman: Do you like women?

Me: Yeah, I suppose I do.

Woman: Shall we make love?

Me: No thank you.

Catamount Community Radio - May 12, 2019

This weeks blurb:

"Gentle listeners, this will be my last radio show until June 30. I’m taking my hustle to Spain (my hustle is teaching Spanish grammar to Americans. Am I an original G or what?).

In Trinidad, sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help politicians get elected. Yet, if these politicians get pompous and out-of-order, these same sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help bring them down. I confess to occasionally getting a tad pompous and out-of-order. But, if you think about it, I’m so insignificant in the grand scheme of things that my pomposity and disorder don’t warrant bringing me down. So, just sit back and have a laugh or two at my expense.

The featured artist today is David Johansen, who may or may not drink Schlitz out of a can with a straw. Jones told a funny anecdote this past Sunday. They coincided in a restaurant, and Johansen acknowledged Jones, but then put his index finger over his mouth as if to say, “hey bro’, how you been? … but don’t bug us tonight.”

Jim Dandy or Jeff will probably get the cover contest this weekend, because Mary Ellen will be watching the Liverpool football club … at my house no less!"

Catamount Community Radio - May 5, 2019

Here's something I wrote about 5 de mayo a year ago:

El 5 de mayo de 1862, en Puebla, se inventó la margarita. Carlota y Maximiliano estaban contentísimos con el nuevo invento, al igual que los franceses, que estaban entonces de vacaciones en México. Sin embargo, a un tal Benito Suárez no le gustó para nada la nueva bebida, así decidió que habría que fusilar a Maximiliano y mandar a Carlota de vuelta a Australia, que es de donde era. Entonces Suárez escogió una fecha al azar para ser el día de la independencia de México: el 16 de diciembre (el "Día del Aullido"). Pero Suárez no pudo impedir que la noticia de la margarita cruzara la frontera y que llegara a California. Y así fue. Ahora sabes la historia del 5 de mayo.

(May 5, 1862, in Puebla, the margarita was invented. Carlota and Maximiliano were delighted with the invention, as were the French, who at the time were on vacation in Mexico. Nevertheless, a certain Benito Suárez didn't like the new drink at all, and so he decided to execute Maximiliano and send Carlota back to Australia, which is where she was from. Then Suárez chose a day randomly to be Mexican Independence Day: December 16 (the "Day of the Howl"). But Suárez couldn't stop news of the margarita from crossing the border and reaching California. And so it was. Now you know the history of 5 de mayo.)

My FacePage blurb for today's show: "Catamount Community Radio: it’s ephemeral; it disappears without a trace, leaving no stains on your chair. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the joy of jazz, and the heartbreak of psoriasis, just to give you an idea. So, grab yourself una cervecita and a taco and settle in. Jim Dandy will attempt to defend the cover contest crown. Sunday mornings, 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streaming, from baked Alaska to deep-fried Kalkaska, from Honolulu to Katmandulu, at wwcufm.com. Batteries not included."

Catamount Community Radio - April 28, 2019

Sweet Chili Pistachios - terrible idea

Donald Trump cheats at golf.

This is the sort of stuff I should be writing on the FacePage, but instead I come up with shit like

“I’ll Be Seeing You” is a tune from 1938 about nostalgia (which ain’t what it used to be) with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal. The geniuses at Wikipedia remark that the tune’s first four lines bear a striking resemblance to the last movement of Gustav Mahler’s 3rd Symphony (1896). And what’s more, the last bit of data sent by NASA to the Opportunity rover on Mars (Feb. 2019) was Billy Holliday’s 1944 version of the song.

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

I’ll include the tune in today’s cover contest.

So, put on your bust-a-move footwear and your brainiac beret, comb your hairs, come downstairs, grab yourself a supersonic gin and tonic, or maybe a mere spot of tea, and tune your radio to 90.5 FM. Catamount Community Radio: legend has it that it’s more entertaining than TWO casks of simians. Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streaming at wwcufm.com.

Catamount Community Radio - April 21, 2019

Here's the FacePage blurb for today's show. I was a little bit proud of it.

I've flown around the world in a plane,
I've settled revolutions in Spain.
The North Pole I have charted,
but I can't get started
with you.

Around the golf course I'm under par,
And all the movies want me to star.
I've got a house, a show place,
but I get no place
with you.

“I Can’t Get Started,” lyrics by Ira Gershwin, music by Vernon Duke (1936). I’ll include it in the cover contest today.

Catamount Community Radio, it puts that bounce in your step, that glide in your stride, that extra mile in your smile. It’s good for what ails you.

Ask your doctor if Catamount Community Radio is right for you. (Side effects include feelings of euphoria, childish glee, depression, suicidal thoughts, nostalgia, nausea, headaches, heartaches, earaches, hyperactivity, narcolepsy, delusions of grandeur, delusions of adequacy, hallucinations, dyspepsia, sneezing fits, itchy pits, grandma’s spells, corns, halitosis, stink foot, and the vapors.)

Catamount Community Radio. Be yourself again!

10-12 Sunday morning at 90.5 on you FM dial, and streaming on the interstate, from Asheville to Nashville, from Barea to North Korea (well, maybe not).

1. Miles Davis – Blue in Green

Dandy retains the cover-contest crown.

1. Two versions of "I Can't Get Started," by

a) Ella Fitzgerald
b) Sonny Rollins

2. Who is covering Mississippi John Hurt's "Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me"? - David Johansen. Jeff gets credit on this one, because he knew that Johansen was lead singer of the New York Dolls, and he also was familiar with one of his alter-egos: Dexter Poindexter.

3. Lester Young (Porkpie Hat) couldn't get started on this one but CANNONBALL ADDERLEY could. Nobody got it.

4. This one's complicated. Four parts: Title, original artist, person covering, and pop culture reference. Dandy got three of four and, basically, it won the contest for him. Title, original artist, coverer, and pop culture reference halfway through the original recording:

a) "Hold On"
b) John Lennon
c) Bill Frisell
d) the Cookie Monster, from Sesame Street
