It’s Wednesday. It’s the middle of the week, hump day, booooring. You’re stranded on a little island right in the center of the workweek, equidistant from either weekend, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
How about improving your blah mood with a podcast dedicated entirely to songs which use that feel-good manual form of percussion, the handclap? I am a complete sucker for songs which effectively utilize this, the oldest form of percussion (other than, like, woolly mammoth foot thuds or something), and I have contributed a track and a scintillating spoken intro in the middle of the hour, right after the ‘Mats song. I had so many great songs to choose from, but I went with the one that was the most infectiously catchy, a favorite of mine.
To stream the dealio, head over to the Contrast Podcast site and click the neat little button. Seamless and my preferred method.
If you must have something to download and savor, you can get the mp3 of the podcast here:
It is practically so much fun that I feel it should somehow be illegal. There are some great & varied selections this week (and that Meters song was the one used in the closing credits dance scene from Hitch — come on, it was funny!).
Take some time and spin this podcast, you will be happy that you did.
