Early this morning at 1:00, CJazzPlus with Mike Chimeri aired on WCWP-FM.  It’s part of the 50th anniversary of Homecoming Weekend which started last night at 7:00 and ends late tomorrow night.

I recorded my show a few weeks ago.  And it’s a good thing I did because I’m coming off a cold and my voice isn’t quite at 100% yet.  (I took my last of five antibiotics a half hour before writing this post.)

Below are the audio and video version of the aircheck recorded from the board a few weeks ago.  The legal ID that played between hours of my show was recorded from the stream and added to the aircheck file.  The video was recorded from my camcorder and mixed with the aircheck audio in Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0.

And this is the complete playlist with written notes (click to view larger):

The “separate page” was a scan of the liner notes for “Anything’s Possible” and “One for Shorty.”  I originally credited everyone on those tracks, but had to edit them out for time.

This evening, I’ll be at the Top of the Commons at C.W. Post for the WCWP 50th Anniversary Celebration.  I hope to have pictures for a later post.

10/23 UPDATE: Rather than upload pictures to the blog, I’ve made my Facebook album of pics from last night public.  Click here to see them.

3/27/13 UPDATE: With the 2013 WCWP Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony approaching, and with WordPress now letting users insert multiple pictures at once, I can now share pictures from the 50th Anniversary Celebration.  The pictures include captions that I originally wrote for the Facebook album, which is now only for friends or friends of friends, and some new captions.  Here is the photo recap:

My parents drove me up to the C.W. Post campus at about 6:20 (maybe 6:25) in the evening.  I arrived on campus at 6:50, just as a barricade was put up in the Hillwood Commons/WCWP parking lot and points west.  Apparently, there was a show at the Tilles Center.  So, I was let out one lot to the east, walked down the stairs, and walked inside Hillwood.  I took the elevator to the Top of the Commons (third floor) and in I went.

…the founders of WCWP: Art Beltrone, Hank Neimark, Prof. Virgil Jackson Lee, and Dr. Herb Coston.

I was fortunate enough to be in Dr. Coston’s presence at the WCWP Alumni Dinner in 2007.

Bernie then invited Art Beltrone and Hank Neimark to say a few words.

Then, Christina turned things over to Jay Mirabile back at the station.

It was a great night.  My one regret is I didn’t have more time to mingle and catch up with my fellow alumni.

Here’s to 50 more years!
