Setlist #40 6.23.10 - Summertime (New time slot!)

Hey y'all
So, sorry I didn't post the last six weeks of the show. It's ok, because no one reads this and it's really just for history's sake. Anyways... Morning Wood has a new time slot. 7-9 am! I know it's early, but I wanted it that way. DJ Turbo convinced me that having a show real early on a weekday is the choicest time because of folks in the shower and in their cars to work and such. So today was the first try at the crack of dawn slot. I liked it; it reminds me of the graveyard shift I had years ago. Hopefully people really are listening. Also, it's two hours again! More work, but more fun. PLUS, a few weeks ago I started a new tradition within Morning Wood: it's called Woodshop! I found this cool record released by The Standard Oil Company of California (Chevron!) It was intended for elementary/high school teachers... in 1975. It contains fantastic interviews of musicians about their instruments and their lives as musicians. Some interviews I played in the unwritten last five weeks were Stan Getz, Jean-Pierre Rampal and Susan Willoughby. Hopefully I can continue finding interviews and such about wind instruments beyond this record... It's gonna be a great summer!
This is what I played:
