Catamount Community Radio - May 12, 2019

This weeks blurb:

"Gentle listeners, this will be my last radio show until June 30. I’m taking my hustle to Spain (my hustle is teaching Spanish grammar to Americans. Am I an original G or what?).

In Trinidad, sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help politicians get elected. Yet, if these politicians get pompous and out-of-order, these same sharp-tongued Calypsonians can help bring them down. I confess to occasionally getting a tad pompous and out-of-order. But, if you think about it, I’m so insignificant in the grand scheme of things that my pomposity and disorder don’t warrant bringing me down. So, just sit back and have a laugh or two at my expense.

The featured artist today is David Johansen, who may or may not drink Schlitz out of a can with a straw. Jones told a funny anecdote this past Sunday. They coincided in a restaurant, and Johansen acknowledged Jones, but then put his index finger over his mouth as if to say, “hey bro’, how you been? … but don’t bug us tonight.”

Jim Dandy or Jeff will probably get the cover contest this weekend, because Mary Ellen will be watching the Liverpool football club … at my house no less!"

Catamount Community Radio - May 5, 2019

Here's something I wrote about 5 de mayo a year ago:

El 5 de mayo de 1862, en Puebla, se inventó la margarita. Carlota y Maximiliano estaban contentísimos con el nuevo invento, al igual que los franceses, que estaban entonces de vacaciones en México. Sin embargo, a un tal Benito Suárez no le gustó para nada la nueva bebida, así decidió que habría que fusilar a Maximiliano y mandar a Carlota de vuelta a Australia, que es de donde era. Entonces Suárez escogió una fecha al azar para ser el día de la independencia de México: el 16 de diciembre (el "Día del Aullido"). Pero Suárez no pudo impedir que la noticia de la margarita cruzara la frontera y que llegara a California. Y así fue. Ahora sabes la historia del 5 de mayo.

(May 5, 1862, in Puebla, the margarita was invented. Carlota and Maximiliano were delighted with the invention, as were the French, who at the time were on vacation in Mexico. Nevertheless, a certain Benito Suárez didn't like the new drink at all, and so he decided to execute Maximiliano and send Carlota back to Australia, which is where she was from. Then Suárez chose a day randomly to be Mexican Independence Day: December 16 (the "Day of the Howl"). But Suárez couldn't stop news of the margarita from crossing the border and reaching California. And so it was. Now you know the history of 5 de mayo.)

My FacePage blurb for today's show: "Catamount Community Radio: it’s ephemeral; it disappears without a trace, leaving no stains on your chair. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the joy of jazz, and the heartbreak of psoriasis, just to give you an idea. So, grab yourself una cervecita and a taco and settle in. Jim Dandy will attempt to defend the cover contest crown. Sunday mornings, 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streaming, from baked Alaska to deep-fried Kalkaska, from Honolulu to Katmandulu, at wwcufm.com. Batteries not included."

Catamount Community Radio - April 28, 2019

Sweet Chili Pistachios - terrible idea

Donald Trump cheats at golf.

This is the sort of stuff I should be writing on the FacePage, but instead I come up with shit like

“I’ll Be Seeing You” is a tune from 1938 about nostalgia (which ain’t what it used to be) with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal. The geniuses at Wikipedia remark that the tune’s first four lines bear a striking resemblance to the last movement of Gustav Mahler’s 3rd Symphony (1896). And what’s more, the last bit of data sent by NASA to the Opportunity rover on Mars (Feb. 2019) was Billy Holliday’s 1944 version of the song.

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

I’ll include the tune in today’s cover contest.

So, put on your bust-a-move footwear and your brainiac beret, comb your hairs, come downstairs, grab yourself a supersonic gin and tonic, or maybe a mere spot of tea, and tune your radio to 90.5 FM. Catamount Community Radio: legend has it that it’s more entertaining than TWO casks of simians. Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5 FM and streaming at wwcufm.com.

Apr. 21st, 2019


Catamount Community Radio - April 21, 2019

Here's the FacePage blurb for today's show. I was a little bit proud of it.

I've flown around the world in a plane,
I've settled revolutions in Spain.
The North Pole I have charted,
but I can't get started
with you.

Around the golf course I'm under par,
And all the movies want me to star.
I've got a house, a show place,
but I get no place
with you.

“I Can’t Get Started,” lyrics by Ira Gershwin, music by Vernon Duke (1936). I’ll include it in the cover contest today.

Catamount Community Radio, it puts that bounce in your step, that glide in your stride, that extra mile in your smile. It’s good for what ails you.

Ask your doctor if Catamount Community Radio is right for you. (Side effects include feelings of euphoria, childish glee, depression, suicidal thoughts, nostalgia, nausea, headaches, heartaches, earaches, hyperactivity, narcolepsy, delusions of grandeur, delusions of adequacy, hallucinations, dyspepsia, sneezing fits, itchy pits, grandma’s spells, corns, halitosis, stink foot, and the vapors.)

Catamount Community Radio. Be yourself again!

10-12 Sunday morning at 90.5 on you FM dial, and streaming on the interstate, from Asheville to Nashville, from Barea to North Korea (well, maybe not).

Dandy retains the cover-contest crown.

1. Two versions of "I Can't Get Started," by

a) Ella Fitzgerald
b) Sonny Rollins

2. Who is covering Mississippi John Hurt's "Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me"? - David Johansen. Jeff gets credit on this one, because he knew that Johansen was lead singer of the New York Dolls, and he also was familiar with one of his alter-egos: Dexter Poindexter.

3. Lester Young (Porkpie Hat) couldn't get started on this one but CANNONBALL ADDERLEY could. Nobody got it.

4. This one's complicated. Four parts: Title, original artist, person covering, and pop culture reference. Dandy got three of four and, basically, it won the contest for him. Title, original artist, coverer, and pop culture reference halfway through the original recording:

a) "Hold On"
b) John Lennon
c) Bill Frisell
d) the Cookie Monster, from Sesame Street

Catamount Community Radio - April 7, 2019

I wrote this in an email to Jim Dandy, but I thought, why not add it to the post: "I always come to my office around 9:30 to pick up my CDs and post the FacePage blurb. So there is a cop car in the parking lot, nothing out of the ordinary, they're making their rounds. Then it creeps away, and kinda slows down as it goes by my window. Then it comes back, along with a second cop car. I'm like, meh. Then as I'm leaving around 9:50 to head up to the station, I'm talking to myself. I say, 'Do you have your keys, Mark?' (I'm screwed if I lock my keys in my office.) Just as I'm saying it, there is a cop walking down the hallway outside my office. I say, "Hello." He doesn't say a word. I'm so sick of cops, I'm so sick of cops, I'm so sick of cops ..... (wait for it) ..... I'M GOING TO TURN IN MY BADGE.

My new thing is to work up my blurbs ahead of time. I think about them during the week now, and usually have them more-or-less done by Saturday afternoon. Then Sunday, I just copy and paste onto FacePage.

"sup? this might be a weird flex, but ok. catamount community radio gonna be lit this morn . nobody will be fixin to dipset once they check out the sick bop, my swift lippin and ego trippin. no cap: a veritable fam jam if you know the lingo and wanna mingle. you may also be inclined to put on those drippin’ kicks you got stashed in the closet, along with your cogitative headgear, because we’ll have the cover contest. sunday morning 10-12 in the whee at 90.5 fm, and streaming worldwide web-wise, from iberia to siberia, at wwcufm.com. yeet!"

Catamount Community Radio - March 31, 2019

The listeners of Catamount Community Radio may get a little unruly Saturday nights and then, bleary-eyed on Sunday morn,’ tune their radios to 90.5. But the truth is they’re paragons of virtue. They’re compassionate, they don’t toss their trash out the window while driving, they don’t sit in their cars staring at their phones with the windows rolled up and the engine idling on Spring days when the sun is shining and the temperature is 71 degrees F. And when they pour their significant others a cup of joe, they never lace it with arsenic. We gentle souls meet at 90.5 on the FM dial Sunday morning 10-12 in the greater Cullowhee metropolitan area, and the show streams, from Guam to Vietnam, from Oaxaca to Osaka, at wwcufm.com.

Catamount Community Radio - March 17, 2019

My FacePage blurb for today's show:

In Santiago, the stray dogs are so smart ... they never wander out into traffic. In fact, they sometimes go into the metro, slip under the turnstiles, head down to the platform, and ride the train a few stops before getting out and going back up to the street. They also know where to find a free wi-fi connection so they can tune their radios to wwcufm.com, which is not easy without opposable thumbs. Sunday mornings 10-12 at 90.5.
