Catamount Community Radio - January 13, 2013

I shot a hundred free throws yesterday, made 93 of them. Are you impressed? I've decided to play church-league basketball again this year, so I wanted to practice a little bit. But in a game can I make a free throw?

It's probably around 70 degrees outside, and I know for a fact that it's 75 here in my office. What's become of winter? I tried to allude to this by playing Fred Frith's "Spring Any Day Now."

Classes start tomorrow. Eee-gads. I'll try to get a good night's sleep tonight. I must stick to my plan of retiring early with a book or two.

I sat in with Mr. T on Friday evening at the Tea House with my tenor. We played my tune "Hefty" and Burt Bacharach Attack's "This guys in Love With You." I played fine, especially considering I haven't been practicing.

We got things rolling with Lennie Tristano, playing "C Minor Complex." Even though I know better, I always think of it as being in 1/4 time because I don't hear the downbeats.

Three Dylan tunes today: "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" (my favorite line of which is "you're gonna make me give myself a good talking to"), "Long and Wasted Years," and "Not Dark Yet." Up until recently, I was of the opinion that Dylan's best music was behind him. But these last two tunes are both recent, and most excellent.

Joni Mitchell's "Black Crow." I've never seen a crow that wasn't black, but to my knowledge crows can see a much greater chromatic spectrum than humans can, so while a crow looks black to us, I can only imagine what color a crow is to a crow. This tune is from the Hejira album, with Jaco P on the bass.

We took a stroll down Amnesia Lane to listen to KC & the Sunshine Band do "Boogie Shoes." My theory is that our decade is the one in which we come of age. In my case the seventies. For the most part, I love music from the seventies. I bet the boomers who came of age in the sixties are proud of that music and probably disdain the music of the seventies: after all, they had the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and Dylan, and etc. And I don't care for the music of the eighties, with some exceptions. But for my money, no decade can match the seventies.

Rock The Boat, Baby

I seen K.C. and the Sunshine Band playing at Disney World some time way back in the 70s. I was on some outdoor up in the air ride like a rolly coaster or something (it was most definitely not the tea cups) and I seen them playing in the court yard below. I know you're super impressed so I'm gonna throw in a similar sighting at King's Island amusement park in Ohio where I seen Paul Revere and the Raiders, and The Hughes Corporation.
Now my place in the Brush with Greatness Museum is secure.
For the record, I never seen anyone famous at Cedar Point,
but off the record, I did get arrested there once.
ok I'm gonna go away now.

Re: Rock The Boat, Baby

Wow! I'll bet there are some interesting stories to tell that haven't been told in awhile, but maybe the interstate is not the right place for them!


Re: Rock The Boat, Baby

ok, so I just received my new season 2 of the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and Who should be one of the guest bands? (besides The Who...) It was Paul Revere and the Raiders!
