Instrumental Invasion, 12/9/20 December 10, 2020

The December 9, 2020, Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded one hour per day on November 11 and 12.

The playlist was created on November 9 with annotations on the 9th and 10th.

I swapped out the 1984 and earlier segment in favor of a third 2017 to present segment.

While recording the second segment on the 11th, I was informed of a change to the segment length standard, from an even 19 minutes to 18:45. I tweaked the first segment accordingly and scaled down my talk breaks for the rest of the show. To that end, some of the annotations seen in the playlist were omitted. Among them, Paul Brown‘s arrangement of “Grazing in the Grass” was #1 for Boney James and Rick Braun on their Shake It Up album in 2000. That’s why Paul’s album is called Ones Upon a Time: it’s new recordings of songs he arranged for other musicians throughout his career.

Nonetheless, the end of the show was cut off again. It was only eight seconds this time, but I’m still scaling segments back to 18:40 from now on.

Last week, I dubbed tenor sax as the “MVP” of the show since it was in so many songs. This week, it was the Hammond B-3 organ.

If you still don’t think Rio.com, the name of Alex Bugnon‘s song, is a real website, here’s proof.
