Catamount Community Radio - June 20, 2010

I forgot it was Fathers' Day, if I had remembered, I would have played Anita O'Day singing Cole Porter's "My Heart Belongs to Daddy."

What else did I forget? I forgot to put the adapter on my headphones yesterday while I was packing, so my headphones were no good to me. I did the show headphoneless. All day yesterday, I was caught up thinking about playing my sax at the bar in the evening.

I did a set on Parchman Farm, also known as the Mississippi State Penitentiary, where the first picture of Elvis was ever made (he was visiting his dad, who was serving time for forgery). The Lomaxes did some of their folkloric research there, and the prison is mentioned often in blues songs.

Mose Allison, in "New Parchman":

I'm sittin' over hear at Parchman Farm
The place is loaded with rustic charm


It won't be long till I leave this place
I'm going somewhere, join the human race.

Since Jimmy Dean, the sausage man, died I played his big hit, "Big Bad John."

I was prepared to do a set on Lonnie Johnson; I had my notes but forgot to burn more than one song. Maybe next week.
