Catamount Community Radio - September 8, 2013

I was out on the basketball court yesterday, and strangely, hitting almost everything I threw up. The kids were calling me "The Sniper." I quit after three games but before I had a heart attack. On a totally unrelated note, I'm puzzled by these Generation Jerkoff (X.Ray Burns' term) kids who can't make change. The total is $4.39. I pay with a twenty, three dimes and two nickels. I know my change should be $16.01 (I'm one of these guys who spends his change rather than keeping it in a jar). The kid counts the coins, and then gives me $15.71 back. How does this happen? Even if I had given him just a twenty, my change would be $15.61, right? Here's the only plausible explanation: He counted the money, and then punched in $20.10, accidentally hitting the one instead of the four as he entered the cash tendered. But he was not bright enough (or he didn't care enough) to realize his mistake. I didn't correct him, I just shook my head and took my money (all but 30 cents of it).

Studies show that dancing makes you healthier and happier. Well, I haven't actually read any such studies or even heard of any, but that doesn't mean that I'd be surprised if it were true. Last night me, the Issue, and Jade busted a move or three to this song in the kitchen:

I feel like this is too uncool for me, but I can't help it. I got it under my skin.

Jim Dandy and Mary Ellen tie on the cover contest this week.

1. Who had a hit with Allen Toussaint's "Southern Nights"? We listened to the original. The answer? Glen Campbell. Mac Davis??? Good guess, Dandy! Part two of the question, who was accompanying Toussaint on guitar? Chet Atkins.

2. What tune is Bill Frisell covering? (I love how Dandy calls him Bill Frizzle) - "Goin' Out of my Head." It was by Little Anthony and the Imperials, but it must have been covered at least 60 times. I'm straining my brain to remember which version I associate the tune with.

3. Who is Norah Jones covering with "Cold, Cold Heart"? - Duh. Hank Williams.

4. Who is Lee Dorsey covering with this version of "Games People Play"? - Joe South. According to the brainiacs:

"The lyrics and title are thought to be a direct reference to Eric Berne's work on transactional analysis of the same name. The book, which was released in 1964, deals with the 'games' human beings play in interacting with one another ...
The song closely resembles an older song, the traditional Cajun ''Tit Galop Pour Mamou'."
