Meat & Potatoes #37

It was definitely nice to be back on the air this week--although it was quite a different show than usual.  I was required to play nicely with others, as I had two trainees in the station with me: Aiden and Kiera.  They will be taking over a Saturday late morning/ early afternoon slot, and I had to put them through their paces on the board today.  As I usually treasure my radio show as a form of alone-time, in which I get to impose my will upon the universe by making other people listen to the music I want to hear, it was an adjustment to stand back and teach people to run "my" show.  After thirty-seven shows, I definitely have a particular set of radioing habits...  Not that the music they chose was out of line with my usual taste; it just wasn't all me me me.  And I like my radio show to be all me me me.  It's my weekly gift to Dawson.

  29. Paul McCartney--Maybe I'm Amazed
I was running things solo as of The Staple Singers, and tried my hand at another upside down drawing of a record album.  I may do this every week, although this week I should probably apologize to The Spectacular Johnny Horton.  This is my second attempt (which is actually better than the first):
 And the original:
And obviously if I'm going to do this every week then I have to play a track from whatever album I'm drawing.  Johnny Horton, just how spectacular are you?
