Catamount Community Radio - January 4, 2009

The first show of the new year. I always have new (to me) music this time of year, after spending some time with my brother, who is possibly more music-obsessed than I am.

The drive north was hellish; they closed I-75 north of Lexington, KY, and so we had to sit in the car for five hours. Then I drove in pouring rain north into Ohio, where the rain turned into freezing rain. Got the the hotel at 4:30 a.m. The next day once again I had to drive in pouring rain. But other than the driving, it was a good trip.

Anyway, on today's show I played a lot of doo-wop, along with Jimmy McGriff's funky organ music and a bunch of sides from Oran "Hot Lips" Page.

I no longer do cover contests, but if I did I would have quizzed you about "Rebel, Rebel" (David Bowie), "(Music is my) Occupation" (the horn line is from Johnny Cash's "Ring of FIre"), "Sugar, Sugar" (The Archies), and "In Time" (Sly and the Stone). But cover contests have been relegated to the dustbin of history, alas.
