Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, December 12 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “It’s our second annual Christmas episode! Greg joins Mickey & Schmoe, with Mike as the disembodied Spirit of Central Standard Time. With special guest appearances by Lee, Shields
& Yarnell, Joey Heatherton, and Chip Davis’s lawyers.

    00:10 - Mike and Schmoe said they couldn’t recognize our theme song in this new Mannheim Steamroller-inspired version.  “Deck in the Halls” is in the right speaker, our theme in the left, courtesy of GarageBand.
    01:02 - bandolero: did I mean bandolier?
    04:32 - the tavern at Southland Mall is now a Ruby Tuesday’s.  Originally it was called McBob’s; and, thanks to my new scanner, here’s a photograph of the old interior with Christmas Carol:

Mickey, Mike, and Schmoe at left; Christmas Carol, center.

    07:59 - Radio Margaritaville finalists
    08:57 - JB’s appearance at DBA bar

    24:34 - Margaritaville

    27:56 - our other Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album parody.  The original features a recorder and although I have one I was lazy and just used a MIDI flute sound instead.
    28:50 - our tribute to Cheers.  Note the phone delay…and Schmoe’s scat-singing skills.

Episode 57: Bollocks

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, December 5 2007 (9:30 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Just the core group of Schmoe, Mike, and Mickey this week, discussing the latest news, reminiscing about old concerts, and finally wrapping up their four-part review of the box
set.  (Cameo by Lee.)

    The plan was to record Wednesday, November 28; but evidently we were still too sleepy and full from Thanksgiving.  The recording was postponed till Wednesday, December 5, when we would finish up our review of the boxed set with a discussion of “Ballads”.
    My apologies once again for taking so long to upload this.  Not only are things typically busy at this time of year, but I spent two days just looking for my cassettes of the 1991 concert.
    And now, the show notes:
    01:10 -  please tell me you all still know what Centipede is
    01:52 - of couse, this is a reference to the Live in Anguilla review n our previous episode, of coure
    02:51 - MTV’s blurb on Anguilla sales, via BuffettWorld.
    03:08 - WSJ‘s story on Palm Beach water guzzling, via BuffettNews
    05:07 - yes, we saw two concerts that tour
    06:29 - this refers to the first Palace show, back on Friday, June 30 1989.  I’m pretty sure we talked about this, and even featured some audio, but to be honest I can’t remember what episode it was.
    08:17 - link to the ill-fated Journeyman, which Schmoe and I had just started really getting into…in time for its cancellation
    08:51 - Keating’s comments, via BuffettWorld.
    10:03 - Thomas Crompton’s blog post on the Chinese charity concert
    12:04 - story on Pulaski County, via BuffettNews’s discussion board.
    13:54 - Last Mango Stables
    14:05 - a reference to The Sopranos episode “Whoever Did This” from Season 4
    14:37 - I did not have access to a copy of Knocked Up so this audio comes from a clip YouTube.  (And boy was I tempted to try editing around the phrase “her and her doctor”.  What the hell kind of English is that?!)
    15:26 - a reference to the Scrubs episode “My Identity Crisis” from Season 7
    16:20 - you know, that joke never gets old.  No…wait a moment…it does
    18:30 - “Everlasting Moon” debuted during the “Jimmy’s Jump Up” tour of 1990
    19:52 - our memories are not entirely correct.  The shooting star occurred during Pirate Looks at 40
    21:09 - with my luck they probably only performed “Money Back Guarantee”.  I almost forgot: the notes for Episode 28 have a link to the DVD of this show, available on Amazon
    23:14 - that rant sounded better in my head
    32:17 - “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
    33:59 - audio recorded Saturday, July 27 1991
    35:10 - the preceding was provided by the good folks at
