Catamount Community Radio - May 4, 2014

It's crunch time in Academilandia, so no long entry today. I had eight hours of sleep last night, but I'm still tired. The type of tired I am is not cured by a good night's sleep.

Just discoverd a potential treasure trove of covers. But they won't be for sale until around May 27. So I'm planning the June 1 show already.

Jim Dandy edged out Mary Ellen in today's cover contest.

1. What tune is Jimmy McGriff covering, and who originally had a hit with it? - "Sugar, Sugar." Originally a big hit for the cartoon band The Archies (reached no. 1 in 1969)

2. Who is playing the guitar on this cover of the Beatles' "I Want to Tell You."? - Ted the Psychopath Nugent. Dandy: "I knew from the first squealy jail-baiting wango twang-note that The Nuge was in the house. (Lock the doors and hide the children.)

3. Whom is Dr. John covering with this version of "Waiting for a Train"? - Jimmie Rodgers. ("The singing Brakeman")

4. Whom is Matt Wilson covering with "Why Can't We Be Friends?" - War.
