Instrumental Invasion, 12/14/22 December 15, 2022

The December 14 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded sequentially between November 13 and 15: three segments on the 13th, one on the 14th, and the last two (plus pickups and remixing) on the 15th.

I created the playlists for this week and the following two weeks between November 7 and 9. This one was created solely on November 7, and annotated on the 9th and 10th. The first hour of the talk break script was drafted before recording on the 13th and the second half on the 14th.

Let’s Get Down Tonight” by Adam Hawley was originally played last December 8.

River Waltz” by Yellowjackets wasn’t the only song crossed off my airplay wish list. I kept hearing “Pass It On” by Jeff Golub on SiriusXM’s Watercolors channel, but neglected to remind myself to put it in a show until this week. Here is the Instagram account for River Mae the Lab that inspired me to play “River Waltz.”

As noted during the show, “My Latin Lady” was one of a few songs by After Five excerpted during local forecasts on The Weather Channel (example). Discogs confirms they were After Five, their album was Jazz Expressions, and it was a printing error that led me and the internet (and me on the internet) to think the album was Expressions and the group was After Five Jazz.

Since I referenced Dancing with the Stars, what with all the dance-themed songs, I’ll note that season 31‘s semifinals aired during production of this week’s show. The finale, airing a week later, concluded with Charli D’Amelio and her pro partner Mark Ballas winning the Mirrorball Trophy.
