Catamount Community Radio - August 5, 2012

We made it back from Indianapolis last night around nine. I was too tired and hungry to prepare a radio show, so I just winged it today. My shows are so free-form (as X.Ray Burns might say, so free as to be almost formless), I'll bet you could never tell. I must admit, though, that there's something comforting about knowing what I'm going to play the day before. Nevertheless, in a pinch I'm capable of improvising. Today, the CDs were all over the place, and it was radio by the seat of my pants.

Still, some themes arose: Stevie Wonder covers, for example. Larry Goldings, with "Big Brother," Adam Rafferty with "I Wish," and Joshua Redman with "Visions."

We heard a couple from Nicholas Payton


We heard David Allyn's "Down with Love."

Down with love,
With flowers and rice and shoes,
Down with love,
The root of all midnight blues,
Down with things
That give you that well-known pain,
Take that moon,
Wrap it in cellophane;
Down with love let's liquidate
All it's friends,
Like moon, June, roses
And rainbow's ends,
Down with songs
That moan about night and day;
Down with love,
Take it away, away,
Take it away, take it away,
Give it back to the birds,
And the bees and the Viennese,
Down with eyes romantic and stupid,
Down with sighs, down with cupid.
Brother let's stuff that dove,
Down with love!

My young friend, Tomás, visiting from Spain, likes him some Ford Mustang, so I dedicated Serge Gainsbourg's tune of that name to him.

We heard a little country, a little latin, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, as we always do.
