Catamount Community Radio - May 12, 2019

This weeks blurb:

"Gentle listeners, this will be my last radio show until June 30. I’m taking my hustle to Spain (my hustle is teaching Spanish grammar to Americans. Am I an original G or what?).

In Trinidad, sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help politicians get elected. Yet, if these politicians get pompous and out-of-order, these same sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help bring them down. I confess to occasionally getting a tad pompous and out-of-order. But, if you think about it, I’m so insignificant in the grand scheme of things that my pomposity and disorder don’t warrant bringing me down. So, just sit back and have a laugh or two at my expense.

The featured artist today is David Johansen, who may or may not drink Schlitz out of a can with a straw. Jones told a funny anecdote this past Sunday. They coincided in a restaurant, and Johansen acknowledged Jones, but then put his index finger over his mouth as if to say, “hey bro’, how you been? … but don’t bug us tonight.”

Jim Dandy or Jeff will probably get the cover contest this weekend, because Mary Ellen will be watching the Liverpool football club … at my house no less!"
