Instrumental Invasion, 2/2/22 February 3, 2022

The special 2/2/22 edition of Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded from December 13 to 15, 2021: one segment on the 13th, two on the 14th, and the second hour on the 15th.

The playlist was created on December 10 so I could devote the weekend to Festival of Games and the subsequent blog post. I had to tweak the playlist on the 13th after it was suggested that I make segments exactly 18 minutes long. That brings me full circle as it was the original segment standard for the first seven months of the show. The six shows leading up to this one had some segments shortened to as close to 18 minutes as possible.

After the tweak, I annotated the playlist and drafted the talk break script. Every segment but the last had to be padded out with extra liners, script additions, and ad-libs. A dozen songs ended with fadeouts and “Theme from M*A*S*H” by Ahmad Jamal (from Digital Works) was one minute short. I should have picked a 7:30+ song, not 6:30+. Incidentally, while back-selling the song, I dedicated it to M*A*S*H writer/producer Ken Levine (“laVYNE”), then plugged his blog, By Ken Levine, and podcast, Hollywood and Levine.

Thanks to Jeff Kroll for reminding me that the day was 2/2/22. I tend to have blinders on, so to speak, and miss anomalies like that. It allowed me to search my catalog for songs with the same title by different artists. I’m proud of the six I chose. Lisa Hilton‘s “Getaway” and Fourplay‘s “Lucky” were both played for the second time; respectively heard the first time on February 10, 2021, and November 18, 2020.
