Episode 10: Squalls Out On the Great Lake

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, July 26 2006, (10:00 PM - 11:05 PM) at Big Al’s in Gibraltar MI; and July 15 - 19 at Silver Lake MI. 
    “It’s a double-wide episode to make up for last week’s absence.  Half of it is our normal show with Mike, Schmoe, and Mickey.  But Schmoe, Mike, and Sarah recorded a whole other Gospel From the Coast show last week, which is included as a postscript.

    Unfortunately this week’s show notes are prevented, by forces out of our control, from illuminating much about what we talked about.
    Jackson Quigley’s website is called Club St Somewhere.  Megan Mohr, winner of the Radio Margaritaville “Ultimate Parrothead” contest, is known as “Mermaid in Disguise” on the Buffettnews boards.  Her full audio submission can (at least currently) be heard on RM’s homepage.
    My quip about “Weird Al” Yankovic comes from finding any two-bit “Morning Zoo” radio parody was labeled “Monty Python” or “‘Weird Al’ Yankovic”.  Instructions on how to set up On-The-Go playlists can be found here,
    Regarding what we’ve been cleared to say about Mike & Schmoe’s vacation: the tequilas they talk about are Herradura and Cabo Wabo.  The recording that bookends the show was recorded Saturday, July 15.  The big storm occured on Monday, July 17.  The aftermath can be viewed here, courtesy of Schmoe’s home movies.

    The final recording is from Wednesday, July 19.  The wind noise is pretty strong but Schmoe is bemoaning his son asking him if there are “freshwater sharks” in the lake.  Here’s some video from that day too.

    I forgot that the Songs You Know By Heart: Greatest Hit(s) album cover is available on CD, but only on the MCA gold Masterdisc.  In case you have absolutely no idea what we’re talking about when we mention the cardboard boxes CDs used to come in, here’s a photo of my copy of Feeding Frenzy.  (It’s the only box I still have from Buffett.)  Mike points out Buffett World has a great compendium of LP album art.  According to this repository, Off to See the Lizard is the last vinyl release.  And, again thanks to this repository, here are the A1A and Havana Daydreamin’ gatefolds.  As usual my memory fails me: the psychedelic gatefold is actually from Living and Dying in 3/4 Time.  Buffett World doesn’t offer this image, but you can see it courtesy of Buffett @ Music for Life.
    P.S.: Crooner Bing Crosby passed away October 14 1977.
    P.P.S.: A crooner is typically a male singer performing sentimental songs in a soft, low voice.
    Favorite show quote: “I know.  A lot of effort to say something wrong.”
