Catamount Community Radio - August 22, 2010

Happy New Year. I say that because I live in the world of school, and tomorrow is the first day of class. So for me, a new year is beginning and an old one is coming to an end. I'm ready, and cautiously optimistic.

I thought the show was pretty good today, but then again, I pretty much always think the show is good. I was going to play a tune for my daughter, so I called home and told them to put on the radio show. My daughter relayed the request to my wife, who asked, without irony, "What radio show?" To which I responded, "THE radio show." (laughter)

I played Pharoah Sanders' "The light at the end of the world," which sounds almost like a Kenny G number. The difference that there is an edge in Sanders' tone, a dexterity, a sense of time that Kenny G doesn't have.

I played Dizzy and Roy Eldridge doing "Sometimes I'm Happy." I meant to quip, "yeah, brief intervals between eternities of melancholy," but I forgot.

I played a tune that was played in toto on instruments made of bamboo. It might give a new meaning to the term "bamboozle."

And I played a lot of other cool stuff, as you can attest for yourself.
