Catamount Community Radio - August 17, 2014

Classes start tomorrow. I can't believe it. Well, I can believe it. It's not like I didn't see it coming from a million miles away. It's like new years day. Starting anew. Make the same mistakes all over again; or better yet, make some new mistakes. All the kids are out walking around; what else are they going to do? They need to figure out what's where and where's what.

Written in 1924 by Isham Jones, with lyrics by Gus Khan, "I'll See You in my Dreams" was the featured song today. We heard Ella Fitzgerald sing it, Django Reinhardt play it on his guitar, Jay McShann play it on the piano in a stride style. We heard a quirky version by the Raymond Scott Quintet, and a nice duet on the tune by Joe Venuti and Zoot Sims.

I'll see you in my dreams
Hold you in my dreams
Someone took you out of my arms
Still, I feel the thrill of your charms

Lips that once were mine
Tender eyes that shine
They will light our way tonight
I'll see you in my dreams

I joked not to show up in my dreams, because my out-of-body guards will gently escort you right out.

Dandy wins the cover contest. The contest reflected the fact that I've been listening to some jazz organ lately:

1. What tune is Jimmy Smith covering on the organ? - "Ode to Billie Joe."

2. What tune is Jimmy McGriff covering on the organ? - "Signed, Sealed, Delivered"

3. What tune are Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery dueting on? - "Night Train." The tune as "a long and complicated history.


4. What tune is the Sex Mob covering? - Prince's "Sign o' the Times."
