Catamount Community Radio - November 23, 2008

Sort of a sad day today, since Jim Dandy can no longer listen to the broadcast. I took it for granted for a long time that Jim was listening. He would write me an email after the show, commenting on it, telling me to whisper louder, and filling me in on the day's menu. It was part of what Sunday morning was about. I'm happy for Jim, though, because he's once again in the country, where he feels more at home, freer to wave his freak flag high, I imagine. And who knows, it may also encourage him to write more. (I can't complain about his photography, which flourished in town).

For the time being, CCR will continue, but I envision a new radio show, created at home with my Mac, using sound collages, spoken word things, something different. Until I can get it together, there will still be live radio Sunday mornings for the faithful. On today's show I explored what makes a pop song work: hooks, arrangement, lyrics. I also did a thing on the songster Bert Williams (thanks to Locust St.). Until I can get my thing going on the new show, Catamount Community Radio airs Sunday mornings, 10-12 (EST) on WWCU.

Bert Williams



Is this eclectic, or what?

You really followed a Jimi Hendrix with Flatt and Scruggs? Only in the Whee!

The wrong answer to this weeks contest that wasn't was "Brown Eyed Girl". I missed the artist, so I don't get a post card...

Requests: There is a Soul song that keeps repeating, I'll take you there over and over. I don't know the artist, but it was on Cool Tracks Radio Show.

More Sly and the Family Stone, Rickie Lee Jones, Nora Jones, George Jones.

I'll take you there.

Thanks. Chris

it's nice to know that there is somebody out there listening!

Re: Thanks. Chris

That's the Staple Singers: nice guitar, nice Rhodes, horn chart. But I think my fave Staples song is "Let's Do It Again." Although maybe the strings are a bit much.



I feel kinda like I died after reading this, and went on to a better place.

Re: Eulogy

That was me...or the ghost of me, perhaps...

Re: Eulogy

How 'bout one of those little Monty Python voices that says "I'm not dead yet!"
