Abstract Index playlist Mar 29/06

It's always fun to spend days and days packing up a CD wallet with about 150 discs for a gig you know won't even require half that amount. What's a little less fun is taking that wallet to the radio station the next day and trying to remember the song titles to go along with the artists in order to enlighten the audience. Of course this would be helped if there were a computer with Internet access in CIUT's on air studio, and that brings me to the Spring Membership drive.

I would love to see some of this drive's cash go towards infrastructure that aids the programming experience at CIUT. Not so long ago, the station emerged from a potentially crushing six-figure debt. The first benefit of being debt-free is the ability to make managerial decisions that aren't governed entirely by money, or the lack thereof. Going forward, it would be nice to join every other community radio station in the world and be able to archive each show's playlists, and that starts with the means to enter songs in real time in the on air booth. I know our music director Ron Burd is in favour of this! And Internet access on air would allow real-time email requests and the ability to look up song titles when one is just equipped with a wallet... please visit the CIUT website to pledge online, and make sure to listen on tomorrow for fun, prizes and special guests.

This week's image? Gotta be Candido, performing at the National Jazz Awards on April 10. I bet that outfit's stayed deep in the closet since the photo session. I think his disco-era "Dancing And Prancing" LP is a career high point for him. It points forward to the stripped down, sequencer friendly arrangements that would evolve into house music a few years later. All you Blue Note/Verve latin jazz purists can go to hell, this kicks just as hard if not harder than his work for those labels, and holds up better today.
