Catamount Community Radio - November 29, 2015

Kind of a Thanksgiving show today, with the usual thankful songs, as you can see. The usual Nemerov poem:

"Infant mortality didn't, as they say, claim me, though it damn near did. So I grew what they call 'up.' To the childhood illnesses routine for those times I added only paratyphoid on my own. I was never starved nor did my parents whip me or leave me chained to the bed. Nor did I get born a Jew in Germany. Plus, I went to their war and didn't die of it. Leaving aside my adventures among the dentists (your teeth are fine but those gums have got to go), my skirmishes with medicine include but a couple of major operations and a few discomfortable bothers with skeleton and strings. I have so far stayed out of asylums and jails and given the smawth and fewth of my abilities, have been lucky in being steadily employed. I'm still with the same dame, have three sons; have lost to death up to this day only a few family and five good friends. So help me, life, I may still make it to the end."

I don't play a lot of hip hop, but I did drop some Eric B. & Rakim:

"I can take a phrase
that's hardly heard
flip it
Now it's a daily word."

I think in all the years he was active, he never inserted a curse word in his rhymes.
