Instrumental Invasion, 8/12/20 August 13, 2020

The August 12, 2020, Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded on July 17.

The playlist was created on July 15 with annotations later that day and the day after.

I liked sharing the origin of an infamous hip-hop breakbeat sample by playing Bob James‘s cover of “Take Me to the Mardi Gras” by Paul Simon. Coming out of that song, a new liner debuted from Joe Bertie, co-host of WCWP’s The Smooth Jazz Show:

Joe got in touch with me hours before air so he’d know when it would run. He recorded the moment and posted it to Facebook with the caption:

Voiceover liner for “Instrumental Invasion” with Mike Chimeri. Terrific show.

I dedicated Jeff Golub and Brian Auger’s rendition of “The Cat” to Bobby Guthenberg, a.k.a. Bobby G., one of the hosts of The Rock Show, which airs weeknights at 7PM and Sundays at 10PM.

The extra time before “Old School” by Nelson Rangell allowed me to reference LIU Post‘s founding in 1954, and the years in which I was a student.

Extra time was limited in most segments, which meant starting songs underneath liners or fading them under early so I could back-sell.

The disparity between audio channels on “Cantiga Nova Swing” by the Dave Brubeck Quartet was so wide, I had to combine them into mono.
