Episode 56: Thanksguilla

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 14 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “This week, a look at Live in Anguilla and, in honor of the season, we ponder what
Buffetty things we’re thankful for.  Hud is back, Mike is still on the phone, and Scott finally returns after a long absence.  (Cameos by Deano, Lee, and a dessert pizza.)

    00:00 - notice a difference in the sound?  No, not Scott; I’m talking about the fact this week’s show is monaural.  I will admit to nothing, other than to confirm that, yes, this week’s show is monaural
    02:32 - CMA winners
    02:44 - Corona sponsoring Chesney tour
    03:39 - JB with Little Feat  |  03:46 - JB and Sonny Landreth
    04:22 - Amazon’s Eric Clapton’s autobiography link
    04:34 - Radio Margaritaville DJ contest
    10:56 - a catch phrase first introduced in Episode 13
    17:17 - Scott’s detestation of Best Buy stems from the events described in Episode 50B
    18:47 - actually they were written the day before our Episode 46 session
    20:51 - Schmoe is referencing his less than successful acting job as the female lead in the Big Finish of Episode 50
    24:58 - oh Lord, don’t get me started
    34:48 - don’t get me started on that either
    35:37 - an old quote from Greg, which we’ve probably mentioned before
    35:58 - Schmoe told me later he meant to imply I could edit him even more
    36:54 - this old wheeze was severely overwritten, but was truncated here not only to save time but to get to the very predicable punchline faster
    Oh all right.  I confess.  The reason the show is monaural is because, before we started our talk, I had too many Bud Lights and drunkenly fucked up the record settings.

Episode 55: Homemade Musings

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 7 2007 (10:00 PM - 11:00 PM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Not only does Mike join Schmoe and Mickey on the phone again, but Hud is back and
Patti returns for her second visit!  The top of discussion is
Hot Water, and these losers, these losers, these losers just drone on…  (Cameo by Tommy.)

    I bought a new and shielded cord for our speaker phone setup, to eliminate any more interference, only to find the cord would not work for some reason.  Luckily, Schmoe had some audio cords in his car and we were finally able to contact Mike and get the show rolling.
    00:10 - Patti’s previous visit was when back in Episode 2
    01:30 - Amazon’s listing for the unofficial Jimmy Buffett Concert Handbook
    02:41 - Patti tried talking us into a road trip since her birthday coincided with the second Las Vegas show.  Unfortunately for her, we’re too cheap.
    05:51 - Jimmy’s intro was slightly edited here to save time
    06:56 - “Tin Cup Chalice” was performed, but it was not aired on Radio Margaritaville so sadly it cannot be included here
    07:09 - oops, this interview with Mike Utley actually preceded the Thursday show, not the Saturday show.  Jimmy’s interview on Saturday was actually an interesting, serious talk about his touring ethic and I include it here as an extra:

    08:10 - nope.  Jimmy, George Strait, and Alan Jackson lost to Tracy Lawrence, Tim McGraw, and the upstart Kenny Chesney.  And Mac McAnally lost to Jerry Douglas.
    09:46 - you can hear Bill make the suggestion at 38:17 in Episode 54
    14:39 - nope, I was thinking of “Lage Nom Ai” I guess.  “Great Heart” was the leadoff song for the Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays tour.
    14:55 - you can’t hear it all that well, but Patti admits “I like ‘Pre-You’”
    15:39 - George Blaha
    15:53 - Schmoe is right, the video was shown during the intermission of the February 17 1998 show
    18:16 - Duck Dunn & Steve Cropper
    26:44 - Patti mentions “Rick Springfield”
    30:42 - “Great Heart” iTunes link
    31:39 - I can’t locate it in Episode 54 any more, so maybe Greg mentioned it before the mics were on.  “Smart Woman in a Real Short Skirt” scared him, he said, because it reminded him of pick-up lines from his single days.
    31:59 - I said this because I would be celebrating a birthday in two days (and finishing the edit)
    32:46 - Jimmy and Marshall Chapman exchanged a kiss (or maybe just an embrace—I was sitting far back, after all) after performing “Perfect Partner” on July 4 1987
    33:23 - Last Mango in Paris was released in June 1985
    35:01 - this recording of “That’s What Living is to Me” comes from July 4 1987.  (And I forgot to mention it includes steel drum here too.)
    37:30 - if I could find it, here’s where I’d link to that “Arlo & Janis” strip
    The snippet of “That’s What Living is to Me” is from July 4 1987.
    P.S.: New show next week.  We’ll be reviewing Live in Aguilla and also talking about “songs we’re thankful for”.  Share your own thoughts at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 1-774-221-7346.
    P.P.S.: Happy Birthday to Me!
