Recorded Wednesday, December 3 2008 (9:30 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “We interview Jack Aronson, the CEO of Garden Fresh Gourmet and the man behind Margaritaville chips & salsa; followed by a discussion of our favorite food-related Buffett songs.  (Special Guest: Jack Aronson.  Also appearing: Cindy.)

    00:18 - our recording coincided with the airing of CBS’s 2008 Victoria’s Secret
Fashion Show
.  Obviously our attentions were divided.
    01:24 - Schmoe and Mike will be seeing Grace Potter on December 11 at The Magic Bag in Ferndale
    02:02 - Cindy’s back.  But more importantly, she had my next beer with her
    03:07 - I don’t want to tell tales out of school, but Hud can be one gassy sonofabitch
    05:09 - Jimmy’s Outer Banks Diary
    05:41 -
    05:58 - a reference to the auto industry bailout.  Specifically, the second appearance before Congress of the Big 3 CEOs (December 4th and 5th), when, bending to public will, they eschewed their corporate jets and caravaned to Washington DC in hybrid vehicles
    06:26 - Schmoe’s first overtures for an interview date back to February 20 2008
    06:40 - Garden Fresh Gourmet

    07:14 - the interview was recorded on Tuesday, November 25 at 4:30 PM (EST)
    16:44 - Westborn Fruit Market

    22:22 -
    22:59 - our iTunes link

    23:48 - and it’s at this point right here that Garden Fresh Gourmet starts rethinking about dealing with us ever again
    27:12 - see 26:48 of Episode 90
    28:55 - Detroit Hoedown, sponsored by WYCD 99.5 FM
    31:01 - Seinfeld: “The Junior Mint” Season 4 Episode 20 (or try this Wikipedia link)
    31:13 - Schmoe would like to point out how it was Johnny Carson who used to joke there is only one fruitcake in the world, which people have been re-gifting for years
    31:30 - blah blah blah Episode 78 blah blah
