Fourth of July Community Radio (2010)

I got a late start today. Why? Because they changed the locks at the station, and since I hadn't checked my WWCUFM email in a few days, I didn't know. So I didn't request a new key to the station. Luckily I was able to find a campus police officer, and she was kind enough to let me in (after phoning the head honcho to verify that I belonged in there). Here's to the campus police!

When I was younger I would ignore special occasions: no Christmas music at Christmas, no groans or zombies at Halloween, etc. But now that I'm older, I like to inflect and reflect the occasion with my song choices, so I did an All-American show today, featuring cats like Chuck Berry, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis, the Beach Boys, James Brown, Louis Armstrong.

Later on today, just like everybody else, I'll probably crank up the grill.
