Catamount Community Radio Radio - May 8, 2011

The crow and the mockingbird have been going at it for weeks now. It always looks to me like the mockingbird is chasing the crow, but it's probably because the crow did SOMETHING to piss her off.

I sat in on baritone saxophone with Tyler's 4-tet up at JJ's on Friday. I had a ball. They played one of my oldies, "As Wine Goes By." My solo stank. I played the head on Strayhorn's "Isfahan." That turned out nice. And I sat in on "Manteca." Haven't had the bari out in awhile.

I hear just now on the radio the Who's "Real Good Looking Boy." Check out these lyrics:

Mom - take a look at me
Have you ever seen a teen
Fly so high?'

That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy

She said,
Son, well, you know,
you're an ugly boy.
You don't really look like him

In this long line
There's been some
real strange genes
You've got 'em all
You've got 'em all
With some extras thrown in

That's a real good looking boy

I saw green peppers on sale at Food Lion for 63¢ each, so I made stuffed peppers last night for ... me. The spousal unit is out of town and the issue at a "sleep-over." ( "... You can have a sleep-over when you're married! ..."). Pity. Stuffed with Italian sausage, tomato sauce and rice, and covered with provolone and pecorino romano.

So, where were we? Oh yeah, today's show. Mothers Day! And Graduation! Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers; and as for you grads, congratulations and good luck.

I tried to play some thematically appropriate music: Abdullah Ibrahim doing "Mamma," Dr. John's "Mama Roux," Merle Haggard's "Runaway Mama," Wille West's "Hello, Mama, The Temprees with "Explain it to Her, Mama," (or is it Explain it to her mama? ... don't underestimate the importance of a comma), and Julia Lee, with "Mama Don't Allow It":

For the grads, Alice Cooper's "Alma Mater." Congrats to Mr. Cooper, Tom Waits, and Dr. John for being inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

One of the CDs I burned was a dud and the tunes near the end skipped. Pissed me off, inasmuch as it's possible to piss me off. It kept me from playing a couple of tunes that I wanted to play. But that's why there's next week.

Antonio Carmona, of Granada's musical Carmona family, did some nuevo flamenco. Hot salsa from Los Soneros del Barrio.

I don't know where I was or what I was thinking, but for all these years I've missed out on Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. I love his voice. We listened to a couple from his 2010 album "Pills and Ammo."
