Catamount Community Radio - March 18, 2012

I ran the board almost flawlessly today ... one minor pregnant pause; other than that, smooth sailing. That's the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like it.

Springsteen has a new album out, pretty good from what I can tell. Bruce seems to be exasperated with the way things are going, to judge by his lyrics. I played three tunes from it, my favorite of which is "Rocky Ground."

We heard a couple from the Duke of Ellington, "Eque" from the Latin American Suite album, featuring Paul Gonsalves, probably from the sixties; and "Caravan" from back in the day, surely the thirties. When Cootie Williams plays that plunger trumpet solo, it sends me. I need to borrow some adjectives from Guy Fiere to describe how good that shiznit is.

Could there be another radio show freeform enough to follow Bob Marley with Flatt & Scruggs? Nashville cats, no wonder they can pick so well, "they've been playin' since they's babies."

Frank Sinatra sang "It's nice to go trav'lin'." (but it's great to be home again). In the lyric he uses the word "fliver," which I've heard, but I don't know what it means. A car? Google to the rescue: yes, a car... originally a Model T. At the end of tune, Sinatra riffs

Burn the passport ...
Light the home fire ...
Get my slippers ...
Make a pizza
