Instrumental Invasion, 6/8/22 June 9, 2022

Posted by Mike C. in Airchecks, Audio, Internet, Jazz, Media, Music, Personal, Radio.

The June 8 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded on April 11 (four segments) and 12 (two segments) with pickups recorded on April 13 and May 2.

The playlist was created on April 9, annotated on the 10th, and the talk break script was drafted before recording on the 11th.

Between last week’s show and this one, Pete Bellotti was named WCWP’s new director of broadcasting. In an e-mail on Monday, he informed me and my fellow FM hosts that the current programming lineup will continue through at least Labor Day.

As noted on the air, I played “It’s You or No One” by Chet Baker in the first Wednesday night show back on April 1, 2020. In that show, I misidentified She Was Too Good to Me, the album it’s from, as “…too good for me.” I’ll be replaying “Autumn Leaves” from that album next week to make up for misidentifying the vibraphonist in the eighth show (May 20).

Serendipity struck again this week as the last song I needed to fill out hour two’s first segment had a similar title to the song I played from Darren Rahn‘s Rock The World album. Last week, it was “Midnight Sun” and “Midnight Madness,” and this week, “Infinite Love” and “I’ve Never Been in Love Before.” One segment after that, I experimented with one long song taking up the entire segment: “After the Cosmic Rain” on Return to Forever IV’s live album The Mothership Returns. Contrary to what the playlist says, I had the post-song liner picked out before recording the talk break.
