Late with this one because as some of you know, I am the Staff Announcer at a TV station and worked well into the night yesterday, recording promos in a flurry of activity for the coming Christmas season.
That will continue as I barely scratched the surface.
And I also write the promos- they tell me what they want, how much time I have for each of the spots, and then leave me alone- very much like the radio station- maybe it's my abrasive personality, lol!
This episode will close out our Songs For Autumn.
We'll have music from local lad Al Kooper, a terrific pop song he did about Autumn from an album he titled, and this always brings a smile to me, Rare & Well Done.
Some Classic Brits will check in with contributions- including an exquisitely beautiful one I am sure you have heard.
Would War Of The Worlds be a hint for that one?
I'll play the BEST song ever written about about Autumn and the coming of Winter, pure poetry in my humble opinion.
In fact, I brought in FIVE different versions of the song, but ended up playing the one I always do, the first one I ever heard, by Tom Rush, and it seems that will always be my favorite version.
And I'll give the final word to the guy who has written and recorded more songs about Autumn than ANY other artist...it's non-negotiable!
We opened the show with him, so it's only right we end with him.
That's it, I have done enough writing lately, lol!
What it always comes down to is this- I hope you like what you hear, and I enjoyed playing what I did!
