Catamount Community Radio - June 25, 2017

Got back a little after midnight last night from Atlanta. Driving the freeways of Atlanta is terrifying. Five lanes going each way, traffic moving at around 70 mph (even though the speed limit is 60), cars darting from one lane to another, often without using the indicator light. One car passed me on the right then cut back into my lane so close to me I really thought his car was going to bump mine. I did it, but it was stressful. I guess if you do it every day you get used to it and that helps explain the nonchalance of these drivers. But I'm a guy who is thankful when I make it to the grocery store the next town over and back safe and sound, so when I know I have to drive in Atlanta I worry, obsess, and stress for a month. The relief is good though, once you make it home.

I'm in another band, this time as bass guitarist. We've been rehearsing some for the last couple weeks, newish R&B I might call it: Erykah Badu, Jill Scott ... But also some older stuff: "Just my Imagination," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," etc. Keys, bass guitar, drums and a female vocalist. Our first gig is July 8 in Sylva. Looking forward to it. Some band names we've bandied about: "Clear and Present Strangers," "Sylva and Gold," "Sylva Soul Searchers."
