Catamount Community Radio - March 14, 2010

The clocks leapt ahead this morning, so I didn't exactly feel like popping out of bed this morning at 8:15, which my body considered 7:15. But I did it, and once I had a little java running through my veins, i was just dandy.

We heard a spoken word thing by Howlin' Wolf, talking about how he was given the name Howlin' Wolf, then we heard one of his tunes.

We heard Kool Keith, AKA Doctor Octagon, do "Blue Flowers," a random chunk of which goes

Would you care to listen to me more? Thank you
Holding bags on down right from the hospital
It's a patient that's worth to keep the germs off the turf
Cybernetic microscopes and metal antidote
Two telescopes that magnify the size of a roach
Three computers to cup of coffee planted with my hand and
astroplanets detached turn on rear foggers

We heard some fine piano playing from Abdullah Ibrahim, Marcus Roberts, and James P. Johnson. Some "inside" jazz (Piero Umiliani, Benny Goodman), and some stuff that might be considered "out": Walter Smith III and Happy Apple.

We listened to a mash up of the lads from Liverpool with the King of Pop: Daytrip to Neverland (the mashed up songs were "Daytripper" and "The Way You Make Me Feel." As an aside, I think I'll mention that my favorite Beatles tune is "Glass Onion," but another of the lads' tunes that I really like is "Cry Baby Cry," which we heard today. I realize that it would be pretty easy to put together a show in which every tune had the word "baby" in the title. Heck, I could do two shows and not repeat a single song.

Beyond that, the usual eclectic goodness.

The show airs Sunday mornings from 10-12 (Caronlina time) on WWCU-FM.
