The October 13 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was another 3-2-1 recording. The first hour was recorded on August 26, two second hour segments on the 27th, and the last on the 28th. Pickups were recorded on August 28 and 29, and September 1.

The playlist was created on August 25 and annotated on the 26th. The script was drafted before recording the first hour and then before the first two of the second hour.

There were no references to Homecoming Weekend because it was unknown at the time if it would even happen. The release of the weekend’s schedule on September 1 allayed my fears. For the first time since 2014, I only have an overnight pre-recorded show. The theme will be music from musicians’ latest albums.

The Hall of Fame ceremony, which would have coincided with Homecoming Weekend, was moved back to its traditional month of April.

10/20 UPDATE: Here is my recap of the weekend, culminating in WCWP’s 60th anniversary broadcast.

Getting back to the 80th Instrumental Invasion, after playing “Ballad of the Whale” by Yellowjackets, I finally got to reference the scene in Star Trek IV that there was no time for back on June 2. I almost met William Shatner last Thursday at New York Comic Con and saw a livestream of George Takei‘s panel the day after I attended. You can read about my experience here.

Ironically, in a later segment, I had to cut an anecdote about my cousins in the Pacific Northwest – I’ve only seen them when they visit the East Coast – and an assumption about The RippingtonsBuilt to Last album that entries on Wikipedia and Discogs disproved.

“Sunset Passion Juice” by Special EFX had been a single for a while leading up to recording, but the mellow sound made me reluctant to play it…until this show.
