The July 15, 2020, Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded over two days. The first hour was recorded on June 12, one day after creating and annotating the playlist. The second hour was recorded on June 13.

I went from concept to completion of the this show and last week’s show in about 60 hours. I’m proud of the results and I hope you were, too.

I’ve been in love with John Williams’ “Summon the Heroes” since I first heard it in 1996. As the Wikipedia entry notes, it premiered 24 years ago this Sunday – July 19, 1996 – during the opening ceremony for the centennial modern Summer Olympics, held that year in Atlanta.

I’m proud of my “Baby Bottle Brazil” quip while back-selling “Ba Ba Brazil” by Four80East in the first segment of hour 2. My talk-up of “Top Down” by Alexander Zonjic, in the hour’s second segment, referenced a jingle from PAMS Series 31: Music Explosion. It was purely coincidental that the artists’ first names in that segment were in alphabetical order.

7/20 UPDATE: I was sorry to hear of bassist Cleveland Eaton’s passing back on July 5. Cleve co-wrote and played bass on “Jamaican Marketplace” by Ramsey Lewis, which I played in the second segment of hour 1.
