Catamount Community Radio - May 11, 2014

I was riding my bike in to my office yesterday when I guy poked his head out of a passing pick 'em up truck and shouted, "Hey Marco!" I realized after a moment that it was probably Pablo, an ex-student of mine. Later in the day I saw him in a grocery store and confirmed it. He told me, "I see a dude riding his bicycle in the rain and I knew it had to be you." It's true; I do think nothing of riding my bike in the rain, as long as it's not poring. He requested the Spanish-language cover of Lou Reed's "Take a Walk on the Wild Side." I asked what time. 10:30 he says. So it aired at 10:32.

Mary Ellen let me know that she wouldn't be tuning in today; she is a fanatical follower of the Liverpool soccer club, and had a game to watch. So I decided to cancel the cover contest for today. Because Jim Dandy needs at least one person to compete against.

I did do a quiz question, which had just popped into my head: what two cities whose names start with the letter K are mentioned in Bob Seger songs? Dandy nailed it. I'll put the answer in the comments in case you don't remember.

Happy Mother's Day and Congratulations to the grads. For the latter, Louis Armstrong singing "You Don't Learn That at School." For, or at least in honor of, the former, a whole shit load of songs, as my playlist can attest.
