Catamount Community Radio - March 25, 2012

A truncated show today. There was a big race on campus, the "Valley of the Lilies Run" with a 5K and a half marathon. The station did a remote from 8:00 - 11:00, which chopped the first hour off from my show. But, since the issue was participating in the 5K, I was there anyway, so I participated in the remote. It was fun; had never done a remote before. I did the second hour of the show, 11:00-12:00. And by the way, the issue did very well in the race, 2nd place overall for females, and first in her age group (15 and under). If you would have told me when she was five that she was going to be crazy about running, I would have said you were the crazy one. But life is weird and so are we.

A theme today was old 45s. I played a few that I found on Boogie Woogie Flu, including this one

From the early sixties. Alison Krauss and Robert Plant covered Spellman's "Fortune Teller" on their recent disc. Despite the immense talent of those two, I kinda like the original better. This cut is good too. We also heard

Kind of a novelty piece, but extremely cool.

Take off those fake eye-lashes
I know you bought 'em on sale
Don't scratch my back
with those false fingernails

And a few others. I played some old jazz, and before I knew it, my hour was over.
