Catamount Community Radio - July 28, 2019

The blurb:

"Antonio Machado writes in what is probably his most famous poem,

Caminante, no hay camino,
el camino se hace al andar.

(Traveler, there is no path,
The path is made by walking.)

I struggled a moment translating this. 'Caminante' is literally 'one who walks.' A translation I found on-line used 'wayfarer,' which is more accurate perhaps, but who says 'wayfarer'? The sentiment of this poem is more-or-less akin to the old adage that the journey itself is the thing, rather than the destination. But if that is the case, why walk? Swing low, sweet Cadillac, and let’s roll. But lacking a Cadillac – a Cadillac lack – the next best thing is a Catamountcommuntyradiomobile. This car has climate control (Saharan desert, tropical rainforest, bracing North Sea breeze) it has power windows, power brakes, power steering and a powerful motor under the hood. It goes zero to sixty minutes in half an hour (or less, downhill) and comes in both English and Metric. So tune in Sunday morning at 10:00 and we’ll turn you into a passive automaton … I mean ... you can take this baby for a test drive! Catamount Community Radio, at 90.5 on the FM dial and streaming right into the stereophonic speakers of your gleaming new automobile at wwcufm.com."
