Catamount Community Radio - July 14, 2013

The Issue calls me "Keems." Where did that come from? Somehow she was hipped to Tonto's "Kemo Sabe" from the Lone Ranger. How, I don't know; she's way too young. Some ignore that Kemo Sabe is just a corrupted version of the Spanish "Quién sabe?" - "Who knows?."

I couldn't get to sleep last night, so when the alarm rang this morning at 8:03 (I never set an alarm for a nice round hour, it has to be :03, or :14 .... the same goes for the microwave; I won't set it for 1:00, I'll set it for 0:57) I thought, oh crap. And I had to be at the station early, because Kevin told me the other day that the outdoor lock was messed up and I might have to call the campus police to let me in. Well, the lock worked so I had twenty empty minutes to stand around waiting to start the show.

Dandy is on the road, so I decided to cancel the cover contest for today. I'm imagining Dandy in the D, or in Mancy maybe. I've got one question ready and banked for next time. No clues.

No big themes themes today. I just finished reading William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury on Friday. I should have gone to hear my friend Tyler play at the Tea House, but I was so into the novel that I couldn't put it down. I spent the evening on the couch, turning pages. For the most part, the novel is set in Mississippi in 1928. Chronologically and geographically, that's pretty close to "Louisiana, 1927," which is the title of a Randy Newman tune I played; one that recounts the story of a flood that wiped out a bunch of crackers' land, and president Coolidge's visit to the state to access the damage.

I just heard a rock song quote a line from a novel: "The past is a foreign country." Impressive.

A little Ellington theme: "East St. Louis Toodle-Ooo." How many know that East St. Louis is actually in Illinois, and that it's the hometown of Miles Davis? Followed that with Aki Takase doing "Fleurette Africaine." Monk did "Caravan" and Ben Webster did "Do Nothing Till You Hear from Me," with string accompaniment, no less.

Sun / Moon: Sun Ra with "Angels and Devils at Play" and Moondog with "Snaketime Rhythm."

Ella sang Johnny Mercer's "Too Marvelous for words." I love this lyric:

You're much too much, and just too very, very
To ever be in Webster's Dictionary
And so I'm borrowing a love song from the birds
To tell you that you're marvelous, too marvelous for words.
