Catamount Community Radio - November 17, 2019

I seem to have caught that blank page thing that writers sometimes get ... what's that called? Oh yeah, writer's block. I guess it happens, even to me. But I can look out the window, and write about what I see out there. If there are no crows weighing the pros and cons of abandoned French fries, or trees flaming into the full glory of fall coloration ... Well, I can substitute ... I might just find a few items that remind me of a lost love and arrange them artfully on my desk. At that point my muse surely pays me a visit. If she doesn't, I curse her, and in her language, which is French, and there is also a theme that can be developed: ma muse m'abuse.

Catamount Community Radio. It's a very small community, maybe seven people in all. But our arms are open wide and we're always looking for new recruits to corrupt with our hedonistic musical excesses. Think about it. If you're the type who likes bebop, country & western, and Afro-Cuban jazz, who has a pair of boogie shoes in the closet and a thinking cap in the dirty clothes bin, who might rock a wig every once in a while, who has tinfoil tied to the tips of your antennae and a bottle of muscatel baking in the oven, this is the radio show for you.

It airs Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streamlines on the internet at
