Catamount Community Radio - March 8, 2015

What happens to that hour that they steal from us? They keep it in a black box for six months and then they give it back to us. Why do they do this? Anyway, I was up early and made it in with time to spare, but now I'm kinda draggin' ass. Maybe a nap is in order this afternoon.

The CD players can be set to count down the time or count up. Somebody had set them all to count up, which is not what I like. But the Program Director was at the station this morning and he taught me how to change the display.

I set a record today for most tunes played on a show, with 53. That's because I did three sets of "miniatures," the rule being they had to be less than two minutes per. Lots of fun.

Jim Dandy wins the cover contest, and you know what, I predict he wins again next week.

1. A three-part question:

a) What's the tune? - "A Change is Gonna Come"
b) What's the name of the guitarist whose group is covering it? - Bill Frisell
c) Who originally had a hit with it? - Sam Cooke

From Wikipedia: "A Change Is Gonna Come" was partially inspired by an incident in which Cooke and his band tried to register at a 'whites only' motel in Shreveport, Louisiana. On October 8, 1963, Cooke called ahead to the Holiday Inn North to make reservations for his wife, Barbara and himself, but when he and his group arrived, the desk clerk glanced nervously and explained there were no vacancies. While his brother Charles protested, Sam was fuming, yelling to see the manager and refusing to leave until he received an answer. His wife nudged him, attempting to calm him down, telling him, 'They'll kill you,' to which he responded, 'They ain't gonna kill me, because I'm Sam Cooke.' When they eventually persuaded Cooke to leave, the group drove away calling out insults and blaring their horns. When they arrived at the Castle Motel on Sprague Street downtown, the police were waiting for them, arresting them for disturbing the peace."

2. One of the miniatures was cover contest question 2.

a) Whose tune is it? - Stevie Wonder's
b) What's the title? - Tuesday Heartbreak

3. Herbie Hancock and his band played a tune, an English folk song. Another multi-part question:

a) What's the title? - Scarborough Fair
b) Which Bob Dylan tune borrows the melody? - "Girl from the North Country"
c) Which American duo had a hit with it? - Simon and Garfunkel

4. The BPA featuring Olly Hite did "So it Goes." The question is, who wrote it? The hints? An Englishman, and not Elvis Costello. The answer - Nick Lowe

Keep on keepin on!

I meant to ask you if you knew of Justin Kauflin. I see that you do. That Clark Terry movie is as much about him as it is about Clark. Good stuff, Maynard.

Re: Keep on keepin on!

I didn't know about him until reading your message. I ordered the DVD and looked Kauflin up on iTunes just yesterday, so it's thanks to you that I know him.
