YOWZAH! #8 "Ain't We Got Fun?" August 15, 2007

I decided to do a "light" show after going through the wringer of emotional catharsis with "The Voyage of Life" program. It was a fun, frothy playlist--except for part one of the 1938 Christmas Concert by Paul Whiteman, which seemed to drag a bit. For that reason, I'm omitting the concert from my Live365 upload, though I may include it in my archives later. It's excellent music, but it really takes itself too seriously--unlike everything else I played that night. 20s and 30s music was generally un-selfconscious, and was serious without being solemn.

There are going to be two more YOWZAH! programs before the students return to class at Utica College. Since WPNR is the student station, it's only right that we community broadcasters hit the road until next June. RADIOLA! will continue as ever, since WHCL at Hamilton College has a year-round community broadcasting policy. It's been a lot of work--but it's been great bringing the music I love to the Utica airwaves.
