Catamount Community Radio - April 12, 2015

I just inhaled that sandwich. What's the rush, Couture?

Friday night I went to Asheville to see a hip hop concert: Immortal Technique and Talib Kweli. They were both good, but I really liked Talib Kweli. His show was solid, well-prepared, with three video screens, his rhymes were dope (aren't I hip with my lingo?) and it was very enjoyable. I felt bad for not having listened to my Black Star album 15 or twenty times before the show, because I was unable to do the sing-along parts. It was well after 2:00 a.m when I got home.

Unlike last week, I was looking forward to the show this morning. I was awake early, thinking to myself, "I don't HAVE to get up just yet, but I'm going to, gonna take my dog out for his morning's morning. Drink some coffee and get on my bike and head out. Here's yesterday's FB blurb:

We're gonna turn it up, we're gonna turn it loose, we're gonna turn on your radio, so watch your step, the best is yet to come, these are the games people play, old man, that's all I want, this is now, this is always, spring jumped up, I don't know any better, let me rock to the rock, we'll do the madison, the mambo no. 5, oh happy day! What happened to television?, i'm jonesin' for jones. I'm thirteen, I'm purple.

It sounds like I'm simply a lunatic, but what I'm doing is alluding to the tunes I'm thinking about playing, and most of them got played, homey.

I heard an excellent podcast in which Christian McBride talks about playing with Freddie Hubbard as a teenager. So I played Hubbard playing "Up Jumped Spring."

Jim Dandy did "the Madison" in his kitchen, the accordions really did snatch the airwaves away from the electric guitars, Tom T. Hall did one of his story songs, and the etc. was copious.

Mary Ellen barely edged Dandy to take the cover contest this week.

1. Name the title, the songwriter, and the pianist playing it. "Old Man," Neil Young, and Brad Mildew eh, Mehldau.

2. Coleman Hawkins played a tune; what was the title? "I Only Have Eyes for You." I hinted the most famous version was a doo wop take on it. I also hinted that had Prince written it, it would have a capital letter and a number.

3. Hank Jones and Charlie Haden played a spiritual; what's the title? - "Old Rugged Cross"

4. What and whose tune is Larry Golding's playing? - Joni Mitchell's "All I Want"

Hey old man, you left out THIRTEEN. Was that like the secret bonus track in the middle of the show because I don't think you credited Big Star as the performer either, but then I could be wrong, as I was on question 4. Sorry but I only associate Joni Mitchell with Casandra Wilson except when Lou Reed is involved and verse of vices. I recon I could have guessed Nick Lowe, but I do finally know better than that, besides I think it was his day off. Actually I could be over thinking this entire comment so I'll shut up now.

I'll fix this! Alex Chilton. Must have been like the tenth song, right. I'll put it there.
