Instrumental Invasion, 7/1/20 July 2, 2020

Posted by Mike C. in Airchecks, Audio, Internet, Jazz, Music, Personal, Radio.


The July 1, 2020, Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded on May 28.

Work on the playlist began on May 20 with annotations on the 24th, 25th, and during the recording session on the 28th.

My back-sell of Chicago‘s “Elegy…” originally included an explanation of the suite’s meaning and referenced what preceded “The Approaching Storm.” I had to cut it for time, but I saved the outtake:

“Progress?” was quite jarring the first time I heard it two years ago. It’s discordant horns mixed with traffic jam sound effects and other industrial cacophony. It’s still jarring, but less so each time I listen.

I didn’t intend to have two segments of songs from one year each, but I’m proud of how it turned out.

My talk-up for “The King is Here” by Norman Brown included the line “it’s good to be the king,” which was a running gag in Mel Brooks’s History of the World, Part I. Mel uttered the line as a different historical figure in each period.
