Catamount Community Radio - November 18, 2018

I'm writing this a few days after the fact, so my memory of the show might be a little sketchy. But I have the playlist written down, so everything will be OK.

I didn't do a show on November 11. I was too sick. Didn't do the usual Guadalupe Café music gig either. I had some sort of bad cold or light flu, not sure which since I didn't go to the doctor. What's the point of coughing and sneezing all over the place? The silver lining is that I cancelled my classes on Monday the 12th and spent the entire day in my bed, reading The New Yorker magazine. I get a fresh copy every week, but somehow I can never make it through, and I'm loathe to throw them away unread. So they pile up. I spent the whole day in bed reading the articles I wanted to read and, by the end of the day, probably recycled 20 issues or so.

Tuesday was "Couture Night" at the Mad Batter in Sylva. I was well enough to play and I had so much fun. I played some sax, sang a couple numbers and played bass guitar. We had Evan Martin on drums, over from Asheville; Michael on upright bass and guitar, Jeff on Guitar, and the Tyler on sax and keys.
