More Radio Oddities

Once again today was another odd day on 2CC. Weekend Magazine vanished into thin air, and listeners were subjected to the 2UE Sydney centric gardening show. Glen Wheeler seemed a bit more comfortable today but he still isn’t as entertaining as George Moore & Paul B. Kidd. Yesterday I started to think he had good taste in music, but he pulled a song right out of left field this afternoon that forced me to turn off the radio for a few minutes to avoid “sqealing and screeching with musical acompaniment”. If I wanted to hear that I would turn on an FM music station.

I am still very disappointed at the changes 2UE made to the schedule, and I’m not overly impressed with the absence of local programming between midday & 2pm which forced a Sydney gardening show through the Canberra airwaves. It is possible that Mike Frame had other commitments, but that gardening show was nowhere near as interesting as David Young’s Garden is.

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

From the son last week to the father this week, the musician of the week award goes to Woody Guthrie, and the feature song is Ain’t It Hard.

Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard
To love one who never did love you
Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard great god
To love one that never would be true

It was late last night when my true love came home
He was a-knockin’ on my door
I got up in a fit of jealousy and I said
True love, don’t come here anymore

Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard
To love one who never did love you
Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard great god
To love one that never would be true

The first time I seen my true love
He was a-knockin’ at my door
The last time I seen his hard-hearted smile
He was lyin’ dead on the floor

Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard
To love one who never did love you
Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard great god
To love one that never would be true

Don’t go to drinkin’ and gamblin’
Don’t go there your sorrows to drown
This hard liquor place is a low-down disgrace
It’s the meanest bad place in this town

Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard
To love one who never did love you
Hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard great god
To love one that never would be true
