Catamount Community Radio - January 3, 2016

I'm back in North Carolina after passing some time in Michigan, and so the radio show is back after a two-week hiatus. I'm glad I took my bicycle with me up there, because most of the time we were there there was no snow. But the second-to-last day there was a snow storm, enough snow for issue and I to do a little sledding. I took a lot of pictures, some of which I'll post on Mondo Marco when I get around to it.

I did a lot of reading while up north; I estimate around 1,000 pages worth. I reread A Confederacy of Dunces (I don't tire of this book no matter how many times I read it). I read a JD Salinger book, several articles from the New Yorker, a Cortázar short story (the one I have been recently been writing about), and finally Bob Dylan's memoir (Chronicles, Volume 1). With this last book in mind, I played a few Dylan numbers today.

"Gigolo and gigolette
still sing a song
and dance along
the Boulevard of Broken Dreams"

- just heard that on Jonsey - nice line.

I listened to the playback of the show on cassette. It was a good show, and forgive me for being egocentric, I enjoy listening to myself talk ... not that anybody else does.

We heard a couple versions of "I'll See You in my Dreams," Jay McShann on the 88s, and Ella singing it.

Still no internet stream ... I give up on that. 90.5 on your FM dial. Sunday mornings, 10-12.
