Catamount Community Radio - February 21, 2016

I've got packing up and jetting out of the station down to a science. 12:04 - I'm out the door.

The technology gods were not smiling down upon me today. One of the CDs I burned was flawed, and the cassette player ate the tape onto which I was recording the show.

I featured Woody Guthrie today. I have been rereading Bound for Glory and loving it. I have grown so fond of the book that I call it Woody or the Woodman, or the Woodchuck: "Where did I leave Woody?" I carry it back and forth with me to school, even though most days I don't have time to dip into it.

I played one of his "talkin'" tunes. Aha! So this is where Dylan got that schtick!

Naturally, I played "This Land is Your Land," but I also hit with such gems as "So Long it's Been Good to Know You" and "Blowin' Down the Road." Good stuff.

I played a couple from Smokey Robinson. Somebody said that Smokey is underrated, because of the preference for ultra-macho singers like Sam Cooke or Solomon Burke. This video is sublime ... I probably watched it ten times in the last week.

Friday night I finally heard my new promo on the radio. No silly stuff this time: no wrestling the airwaves away from the electric guitars, no musical cornucopia, no 'more fun than two barrels of monkeys.' Maybe I'm growing so-called "up" ... Nah.

Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5 on the dial of your Marconi. I'm cautiously optimistic that the internet stream will be back one of these days.
