Catamount Community Radio - May 3, 2015

Tyler put together a Latin band to celebrate his fortieth birthday. I went with Mary Ellen to hear them at the tea house last night. They were smokin'!

Ben E. King passed away the other day. Yesterday the spousal unit played me a clip of Tracey Chapman performing "Stand by Me" on Letterman. So then I had that tune going through my head all day. I didn't want to play that tune, so I played something I like even more, "Supernatural Thing, Pt. 1."

Junior vs Junior

Damn, I knew I would pick the wrong Junior.
And I seem to be getting my Mancini's and Bacharach's mixed up as well. Where's Joni Mitchell when ya need her, and who the hell is Petula Clark, anyway? ha ha. Good times. Oh, and Harry, keep the change.

Re: Junior vs Junior

My parents used to listen to Petula Clark records. I believe you could still find a couple of them in the basement of the house in Mancelona. Congrats, Jim.
