For the first time in ages, went out to Guelph Friday night to spin some tunes on CFRU. New equipment caused slight technical snafus, but the night went well. Had proof someone was listening - got a phone call from one of my old co-workers who still has a show on the station (good to hear from ya, Big John!).
The playlist 11PM Apr 30-1:05AM May 1
The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash
Thought this would make a good opener, after seeing Dawn of the Dead.
Tear Stained Letter - Richard Thompson
In The Cold, Cold Ground - The White Stripes
Belleville Rendez-Vous (English) - Ben Charest
Desculpe, Baby - Os Mutantes
No connection between any of these tunes.
Make It Easy On Yourself - Jerry Butler
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself - Tommy Hunt
(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me - Lou Johnson
Nikki - Burt Bacharach
Do You Know The Way To San Jose? - Dionne Warwick
A set of Burt Bacharach tunes, including two obscure original versions of well-known songs. The first one surprised me when I discovered it in a karaoke book at the Gladstone Hotel.
Seek You - Mellow
Tape Deck in His Tractor - Dottie Cormier
Rubber Room - Porter Wagoner
A Hundred And Sixty Acres - Marty Robbins
Easy To Be Hard - Hair Original Off-Broadway Cast
The Old Man's Back Again - Scott Walker
Judy Is A Punk - The Ramones
Started off as a soundtrack-related set, but then I went off the rails, figuring the Robbins tune would fit after the Cormier.
DaVinci's Inquest Theme - Tim McCauley
Creamsicle - Dave Lang
Don't Become The Thing You Hate - Destroyer
Plastics For 500, Bob - Shadowy Men
One Ring Jane - Mother Tucker's Yellow Duck
That's Just A Thought That I Had In My Mind - The Ugly Ducklings
Kick It - Peaches and Iggy Pop
The Earth Revolves Around You - Ginger
Canadian corner, to bring my CanCon up to par.
Gimme Danger - Iggy & The Stooges
The Love Below (Intro)/Love Hater - Outkast
The Walking Blues (Walk Right in, Walk Right Out) - Fluffy Hunter
The dangers and fun of love. Yes, the Fluffy Hunter tune is a double-entendre (from a collection of raunchy 50s R&B).
The Girl With No Name - The Byrds
Citizen Freak - 49th Parallel
Werewolf - The Frantics
Meet on The Ledge - Fairport Convention
The Day We Caught The Train - Ocean Colour Scene
New Enemy - Sarah Harmer
Walking In Space - Quincy Jones
Nothing in common, other than to (a) bring up CanCon some more (49th Parallel, Harmer) and (b) a long tune to give me time to start putting discs away in the library (Jones, which also connected to the Hair tune played earlier). The Frantics here are no connection to the Canadian comedy troupe, but a 60s instrumental band.
