Catamount Community Radio - May 10, 2015

I sometimes wonder - without seriousness - if I'm the last guy in the world who uses cassette tapes. I always record 3/4 of the show on cassette to listen back and critique (or simply admire) myself. Well, the handle broke on my boom box, so now it's hard to ride the bike and hold the boom box. In the past, I would simply hang it on the handlebars and insure that the cord didn't get caught in the front wheel. Now I walk the little bit between my office to the station, holding the boom box like a baby.

After the show I rode my bike home, got Roscoe and walked back here to my office. He's been sleeping at my feet under my desk ever since we got here. Where am I supposed to put my feet, Ross?

It's Mothers Day, so happy Mothers Day to all you mothers. Here's one that I played that Mary Ellen liked.

Nick and Gaby win the cover contest. It was a hard one today.

1. What's the tune, whose tune is it, and who is picking it on the guitar? My hint was that it neither of my go-to guitarists (Marc Ribot and Bill Frisell)

a) "Rainy Days and Mondays"
b) The Carpenters
c) Pat Metheny (I did this acoustic version of the tune, but the truth be told, Pat Metheny has never been one of my favorite guitarists

2. Whose tune is it, who is covering it, and who else has covered it?

a) Allen Toussaint's
b) Elvis Costello
c) many, but I first became aware of the version by Little Feat

This recording features Elvis Costello's band, The Attractions, with Toussaint on piano and the horn section from Toussaint's band.

3. What tune is this, who songwriting duo wrote it, and who is playing it? The hint was that the guitarist is famous for playing his solos in octaves.

a) "Wives and Lovers"
b) Bacharach and David
c) Wes Montgomery

4. Anat Cohen played a tune. All I ask is what is the title - "No Moon at All"
