Catamount Community Radio - March 29, 2009

On today's show, an ode to Spring (even though it's my least favorite of the seasons), with The Kinks, Fats Waller, Johnny Cash, and a couple versions of "Feelin' Groovy." A little shout-out of thanks to Snuh.

I shared recent discoveries, Omer Avital and the Electric Junkyard Gamelan. As Music for Maniacs explains the latter, "a veteran quartet that build their own fanciful instruments and play fun, accessible original compositions on them. It's largely the project of New York madwoman Terry Dame who was initially inspired by Indonesian gamelan music. While some of their songs do indeed resemble the hypnotic percussive melodies of a Balinese/Javanese gamelan orchestra ...other tunes definitely strike out into new, distinctly urban American directions .... Instruments are fashioned from coat hangers and rubber bands, bed frames, old farm equipment, turntable platters, clay pots, saw blades and truck springs."

We've been getting a lot of rain, which I've enjoyed (rainy days don't get ME down!), but a couple of ball games were rained out, which meant a double header today, which meant I had to end the show a little early.

Surely there's a version of "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" that you like?

Re: spring

Great suggestion. Maybe Stanley Turrentine, or Carmen McRae. BTW, Happy Birthday.
