The January 18 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded from December 1 to 3, 2022: the first segment on the 1st, the next three on the 2nd, and last two on the 3rd along with remixing and pickups.

The playlist was created on November 27 with annotations on 29th and 30th. The talk break script was drafted November 30 and December 1.

This week, the extra 2017-present segment was swapped for an extra 1985-95 segment. The last four segments only had two talk breaks each. The first two of hour 2 were made up of three songs in a row (a triple shot).

Off the Top” by Kim Scott was originally played last April 6.

Since I brought it up after playing Wes Montgomery’s cover of “Windy,” I would have liked to attend the Dancing with the Stars Live tour stop at the Tilles Center last Tuesday, but the show was sold out when I looked for tickets and they were only available marked up through resellers on Ticketmaster. Oh, well. By the way, my “everyone knows it’s Instrumental Invasion” line going into “Windy” referenced a lyric in the song.

I included “Automat” by Yellowjackets after having seen a documentary on the titular fast food restaurants popularized by Horn & Hardart.

Here is a composite of CBS Sports’ coverage of the 1988 Tour de France, complete with John Tesh‘s music:

While skimming through the video, I thought John himself covered parts of the race, but the voice I heard (and face I saw) was Tim Brant.

1:50 PM UPDATE: This is another of those shows where I don’t notice mistakes or oversights until after the show airs. Bob Mintzer played tenor and soprano sax on “Automat.” The phrase trumpeter Igmar Thomas borrowed on “Blues Vagabond” by Lisa Hilton was from “Killer Joe,” which Quincy Jones covered on Walking in Space. The song was originally written and performed by Benny Golson for The Jazztet‘s Meet the Jazztet record. “Chicken Joe” was by pianist Joe McBride.

I also missed a community calendar spot I recorded on Monday that ran during the last break:

The music bed is “Working Girl March #2 (Film Cue)” by Dave Grusin from the Tootsie soundtrack.

4:05 PM UPDATE: Oh, and this is the PAMS jingle I referenced going into “Wherever You Go” by Brian Simpson:

I clipped from part 2 of Jon Wolfert’s The History of the Musicradio WABC Jingles.
