Catamount Community Radio - November 30, 2014

Random thing number 1. I can be a neatness freak at times. I've noticed nobody's vacuumed the studio in awhile. So while the songs were playing today I was picking up specks of this and that from the floor. I found several fingernail clippings. That's it. My faith in humanity is over. People are idiots.

Random thing number 2. I was out scouring campus for a sandwich or something, and I ran into a student from a few semesters back. He asked me for a hug. How about that? Faith in humanity restored.

The screeching tires were a propos again today. I think my limo came to a screeching halt outside the doors of the studio and my security detail ushered me in at 10:00 on the dot. I had some Oscar Peterson spinning right away, as if nothing. That's how I roll. Freeform radio, baby, by the seat of one's pants, whatever that means.

Jim Dandy repeats as Cover Contest winner, edging out Mary Ellen and Nick, who tie for second.
