Catamount Community Radio - October 6, 2019

On the left, my current radio notebook, which was inaugurated December 3, 2017 and will be retired today (as soon as I figure out who wins the cover contest). On the right, the new radio notebook, in which I will start writing next week.
I use these notebooks to keep track of my playlists, jot down ideas for quips and tunes to play, and outline and judge the cover contest. Traditionally, they are also where I would copy down the witticisms of the late X.Ray Burns, like these …

"Can we make out later? ... After I'm finished with this glazed doughnut."

"The men's room floor art ... You have to bend over until the light is just right, and you'll see what I'm talking about."

"I've seen you glide, and when you glide, everybody better get out of the way."

"I love a diablo sandwich, and I don't even know what it is."

"I'm looking at this girl, who I would like to have as my own, but she's got Billy Joel all over her ... cigarette breath, bourbon."

"I've got you under my sink."

"My next investment is a pressure cooker ... you can cook a chicken in eight minutes. If you don't like it, you can always turn it into a bomb."

"Lawsuits can be funny."

What does this have to do with promoting Catamount Community Radio? Nothing really, just something that may be of interest to my hardcore fans. Catamount Community Radio airs Sunday mornings, 10:00-12:00 at 90.5 in Cullowhee, NC and environs, and it streamlines at wwcufm.com. Today, we have the cover contest, a set of Unknown Hinson, jazz, and et cetera.

Dandy wins the cover contest, edging Donna. Mary Ellen sat this one out, due to connectivity issues.. Steven in third.
