Catamount Community Radio - January 24, 2010

I got a good night's sleep last night, and it paid off: I ran the board cleanly today with no miscues, good transitions, etc. The faculty advisor for the radio station (it's a student-run station) called a couple times to tell me how much he was enjoying the show. That's the kind of feedback I can deal with.

Today I played a little more Haitian music, two versions of "Surrey with a Fringe on Top," Cannonball Adderley's sweet version with strings, and Sonny Rollins tearing it up in a pared-down tenor sax/drum duet. A couple by the King of Country and Western Troubadors, Unknown Hinson. I mixed up the genres, as I always do, with reggae, soul, country, jazz, gospel, elctronica, alt. rock, Hatian, doo-wop, blues (girl's got Jordan River in her hips and I wanna be baptised). A little accoordian and saw music by Dreamland Faces. Oh... a mash-up by Phil RetroSpector. I spun a Lee Dorsey joint for Eliza. What else can I say?

That the show airs Sunday mornings from 10-12 (Carolina Hours) on WWCU-FM?

Miss Ewe

I was actually thinking of you Sunday morning and wishing I had internet just so I could listen. I miss that and this sounded like a good show. Keep on keepin' on!

Re: Miss Ewe

Thanks, Jim Dandy. I miss the Sunday afternoon comment on the show, even if it was "whisper louder!" Back in the day, I always did the show keeping in mind that you were listening! One day you'll be back.
