Catamount Community Radio - January 6, 2019

I woke up late today, 8:36, but I made it. I was thinking, last night and this morning too, that I had nothing funny to say. DJ problem, right? But I probably came up with one or two quips ridiculous enough to make somebody at least smile.

I have been pretty lazy posting my playlists, but as of today I think I'm up to date.

Let's see, what happened today in my world of radio?

I played Conway Twitty and riffed about if he had a Twitter account. Twitty tweeting on Twitter, etc.

Faron Young, Apartment # 9 ... no my apartment is 2B ... 2B or not 2B?

Steely Dan had me riffing about band names ... Sometimes we can divine where they come from (e.g. "The Doobie Brothers"), but sometimes they are puzzling (e.g. "The Flaming Groovies") Well, it turns out that "Steely Dan" was from a William F. Burroughs novel, the Naked Lunch (which I have never read) ... it was the name of a dildo or strap-on. Both Jims, Kalkaska Jim and New York Jim, alerted me to that fact.

I talked about the blues and why they some sometimes seem a little tiresome ... The same cliches (I need some new cliches). But you gotta be grounded in the blues to go anywhere if you play jazz or rock. I always like to make fun of C.B. Roy, who has a blues show 8 p.m - 1 a.m. Sunday nights ... because he talks comically slow with strange accentuation ... I mimic - no, mock - him, but it's OK, because he's not listening. Blues, greens, oranges and purples.

Los Tucanes, "Jugo a la vida." The theme is basically hedonism. You want wine? ... here's wine... You want Vegas? here's Vegas, You want the beach, here's the beach, etc. So, heaven is like that for me. You want to chat with Elvis, you chat with Elvis; you wanna beat Tiger Woods at golf, you beat Tiger Woods at golf. But here's what I didn't say .. Even this Heaven would eventually get tiresome and you would prefer mere oblivion.
