Nick Lowe Community Radio

Just a little bit more grading to do, and my summer will officially begin. My goals for the summer are to get some writing done, to practice my music, and to be nice. I should have no trouble with one of the three.

I suppose it is somewhat predictable that I would feature Nick Lowe today, having been to his concert on Thursday. Well, that's what I did. I played some oldies and some tunes from the new Old Magic album. I've been talking so much about Nick Lowe lately that I suspect the spousal unit is getting tired of it.

I played a couple versions of the old spiritual "Wade in the Water," one by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass and the other, pure heavy metal, by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.

Adam Yauch (MCA) passed away, so I played a Beastie Boys tune in tribute.

Steal from the rich and I'm out robbing banks
Givin' to the poor and I always give thanks
Because I got more stories that J.D.'s got Salinger
I hold the title and you are the challenger
I've got money like Charles Dickens
Got the girlies in the Coupe like the Colonel's got the chickens
Always go out dapper like the Harry S. Truman
I'm madder than Mad's Alfred E. Newman

I brought back the cover contest. But I don't seem to have any entries. I played a reggae number, "(Music is my) Occupation" by Tommy McCook. The question was, what country song do the horns quote? (Answer: "Ring of Fire"). Question two was to find out whom CCS was covering. (Answer: Led Zeppelin, "Whole Lotta Love" ... an easy one). Number three, a cumbia version of "Me gustas tú." Whom are they covering? (Answer: Manu Chau.) I think it's time to retire the cover contest again, at least until Jim Dandy gets internet at his house.

Yesterday was the Kentucky Derby, so I decided to play "One Mint Julep." I've never had one before, but I bet they are good. What's in them anyway? (I'm not going to google it, I'm going to guess bourbon, mint, sugar, and water.)
