Wendy Butler fills in Nov. 7

1st November 2009

This will be Wendy’s first full-length music show on KHSU! Wendy has been the producer and editor of ArtWaves, a long-time local art show of interviews. She is a journalist, a storyteller and an all-around sweetheart. She is very excited to be filling in on the show for Nov. 7.

I will be moving percussion instruments in preparation for the Humboldt Bay Brass Band concert that evening, which begins at 8 p.m. If you feel like hearing an all-brass ensemble play everything from Rossini to Chicago… check it out. Fulkerson Recital Hall, HSU campus. For more details, and tix costs, visit: The Humboldt Bay Brass Band Website

KHSU Fish Mug

This is a mug design I did for KHSU around 1990 or 1991. Wish it could have been re-issued for this spring’s Adopt a Salmon theme!

Will To Love [A fish song]

5th April 2008

by Neil Young
From the 1977 album, American Stars ‘n Bars

It has often been my dream
To live with one
who wasn’t there
Like an ocean fish
who swam upstream
Through nets,
by hooks, and hungry bears.
When the water grew less deep
My fins were aching
from the strain
I’m swimming in my sleep
I know I can’t go back again.
Got the will to love,
the will to love.
I’ll never lose it,
never lose the will to love,
Never lose the will.
It’s like
something from up above.
I can be like
a fire in the night
Always warm
and giving off light
But there comes a time
when I shine too bright
Oh, I’m just a fire in the night.
And now my fins are in the air
And my belly’s
scraping on the rocks
I still think
someone really cares
And I’ll keep swimming
till I stop.
Got the will to love,
the will to love.
I’ll never lose it,
never lose the will to love,
Never lose the will.
It’s like
something from up above.
I’m like a singer on the stage
With the golden lights
and liquid rage
Down from the mountains
to the sea
Cool running love
keeps cleansing me.
It keeps my gills
from getting dry
But it distorts things
in my eyes
Sometimes I see
what really isn’t there
Like my true lover, and I care.
Got the will to love,
the will to love.
I’ll never lose it,
never lose the will to love,
Never lose the will.
It’s like
something from up above.
Sometimes I ramble on and on
And I repeat myself
till all my friends are gone
And get lost in snow
and drown in rain
And never feel the same again.
I remember the ocean
from where I came
Just one of millions all the same
But somewhere
someone calls my name
I’m a harpoon dodger,
and I can’t, won’t be tamed.
Got the will to love,
the will to love.
I’ll never lose it,
never lose the will to love,
Never lose the will.
It’s like
something from up above.
Baby, if I see boredom
in your eyes
I’ll know my river has run dry
But I won’t turn back
with that lonely tide
I bought that ticket
and I’ll take that ride.
If we meet along the way
Please sway beside me,
let us sway together
Our tails together
and our fins and mind
We’ll leave this water
and let our scales shine
In the sun above
and the sky below
So all the water
and earth will know
It has often been my dream
To live with one
who wasn’t there.

Three Little Fishies

1st April 2008

This Saturday will be the first day of the spring KHSU membership drive! And opportunities will abound with adoption of coho salmon as a way to help support your favorite radio station! I’ve been asked to have a FISH theme for my music show. This video was sent to me from Halimah the Dreamah… and it’s from one of my ‘favorite’ TV shows…Lawrence Welk! (it’s a love/hate thing)
