14:57 - refers to a U of M football Top Ten List in the Detroit Free Press and its “One Particular Harbaugh” listing. For more information on Jim Harbaugh, e-mail Schmoe. You’ll learn more than you ever wanted to know about University of Michigan football coaching.
15:34 - Mike’s shopping suggestion: the cordless Frozen Concoction Maker on sale at Buy.com
17:01 - our 2009 Christmas wishlist
17:26 - my insistence in making fun of Schmoe had me taking a clip from the end of the recording and jamming it here, hence the difference in sound
18:02 - unfortunately I failed to record this concert — the only one I missed this year — and had to use SunLover‘s MP3s from Buffett News. Note: there was no pre-show interview this night, Jimmy and Mac played through what would’ve been the intermission, and apparently Jimmy’s cold was why he sang “Margaritaville” so badly.

38:12 - I seriously have no idea why I’m saying “frenchified” so much. I don’t know what came over me.
38:49 - an inside joke. Schmoe completed the Detroit marathon (as almost seen here) on October 18; Mike ran the half-marathon, and we won’t let him forget it.
44:40 - Nadirah Shakoor’s Nod to the Storyteller, which we reviewed in Episode 94
