Catamount Community Radio - September 2, 2018

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Charles Bukowski called it the worst goddam day of them all (I heard somebody say that he said something like that). Then today (which is Monday, by the way) I see that Isaac posted a video of James Baldwin on a talk show, quoting Malcolm X:

I don’t know if white Christians hate Negroes or not; I know that we have a Christian church which is white and a Christian church which is black. I know as Malcolm X once put it: “the most segregated hour in American life is high noon on Sunday." That says a great deal to me about a Christian nation. It means that I can’t afford to trust most white Christians, and certainly cannot trust the Christian church.

I'm just going to leave that there.

Clean board op yesterday. Average show, but my average is above average; ergo, it was an average show for me, but a better-than-average radio show, as radio shows go. Besides, abulia, I also suffer from an intense case of modesty. Maybe I should ask my doctor is Getagripium is right for me.

Catamount Community radio is a freeform radio program in which I snatch the airwaves away from the long hair hippies and hand them over to the afro blacks. Sunday mornings 10-12 (EST). It streams on the internet - from Maine to Spain, from Kalkaska to Alaska, from Kalamazoo to Katmandu - at WWCU-FM.
