Catamount Community Radio - February 10, 2019

So, I'm sitting here listening to Glen Jones on WFMU, as I do every Sunday between noon and three, and that's not a tear in my eye, just some dust or something. Glen is making public the news that X.Ray has advanced lung cancer. I knew already, because of social media, but listening to Glen reminisce about their friendship over the years is pretty poignant.

A couple themes today, the first one coffee. There was this Seatbelts tune that I lost when I got my computer "refreshed" (IT lingo for "replaced"). Found it anew yesterday.

- Would you like to have some coffee with me some time?
- NO.
- C'mon, just some tea or something?
- NO.

Then, Lefty Frizzell, with "Cigarettes and Coffee Blues" and then Sarah Vaughan with "Black Coffee." Jim Dandy says the tunes reminded him of days in a cafe in Mancelona, him probably with a pop and some french fries, and his mom drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes.

Joni Mitchell was the other theme of the day. Sent "Urge for Going" out to Donna, then a bunch of covers and other nonsense.

Played a Thai tune from probably the seventies that my brother hooked me up with some years on one of the many eclectic CDs he burned for me. I imagine it was about the joys of romantic love, and also about the pain it causes.
