Catamount Community Radio - July 20, 2014

I blame it on the supermoon. As I was driving to the airport to pick up the rental minivan, I was honked at once, and shouted at by a passing motorcyclist. I'm assuming the reason each time was that I was driving too slow, even though I was probably going around 55 mph. Once in the van on the way home I saw one near accident, as a car in the middle turning lane almost merged directly into another car, and then a guy nonchalantly driving in the bike lane. I had a premonition, but whatever. I picked up the spousal unit, the issue, the mother-in-law, the dog and the various and sundry luggage and off we were to Michigan. It happened in Dandridge, Tennessee. I was waiting at a light. It turned green. I proceeded out into the intersection when suddenly out of nowhere comes a Toyota Corolla. It plowed into the front of the van, completely tearing off the front bumper. F¶&k! Spent the night in Dandridge, got a replacement vehicle (Chevrolet Traverse, which I prefer to the Dodge Caravan), and drove all the way to Mancelona the next day (a 15-hour drive). But what a way to start the vacation. I knew it was around that date, and I just checked it: it was exactly that date. July 12, 2014. I've always been a pretty careful driver; in 34 years of driving I had never had an accident. And now, every time I'm behind the wheel I see danger everywhere. I feel like turning in my license.

So the screeching-of-the-tires sound effect that I use every Sunday to start the show had special resonance today. Nevertheless, it was good to be back doing radio after a week off.

Mary Ellen wins the cover contest with a perfect score. Dandy missed only one question, but that wasn't good enough this week!

1. Lake Street Drive is doing a number called "Rich Girl." Whose tune is it? Hall & Oates's.

2. Who is interpreting Cole Porter's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" on the tenor sax? - Sonny Rollins

3. Choose the number, between 0 and 9. The answer is nine (Bill Frisell playing Lennon's #9 Dream.)

4. What's the name of the tune Mongo Santamaría is playing? "In a Gadda-da-Vida"

Congrats to Mary Ellen, and happy birthday to both Dandy and Mary Ellen. Dandy, on the 17th; Mary Ellen, on the 21st.
