Episode 20: Schmoe’s on Wednesday

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, October 4 2006, (7:30 PM - 9:30 PM) at Casa de Schmoe in Dearborn MI
    “Thanks to Radio Margaritaville, Sirius 31, we got to hear Jimmy’s new album ahead of its October 10 release date. Here are our pizza-and-tequila-fueled thoughts on the new material, from our listening party at Casa de Schmoe.

    Scott and I assembled at Schmoe’s house by six to listen to Radio Margaritaville’s preview of Take the Weather With You.  Mike showed up about a half hour late, due to his long commute from work.  Although scheduled for two hours, the preview lasted more like ninety minutes.  We started recording almost immediately afterward, sitting around Schmoe’s kitchen table.  Without wallyball or racquetball (or golf) preceding it, what we assumed would be a big night of podcasting actually ended earlier than our usual Wednesdays.
    The pizzas came from Benito’s.  The Coronas, margaritas, and Twisted Teas were Schmoe’s.
    If you’ve forgotten, Hud’s cameo starts off Episode 7.
    Here’s some “Free Bird” historyAnd here’s some “Curtis Lowe” history.
    Scott pictures Heather Dee Perry.
    Scott’s Brush with Greatness: Shock coach and former Piston Bill Laimbeer and former Lion coach Steve Mariucci.
    Upon further reflection, “Cinqo de Mayo in Memphis” reminds me even more of “Clichés” than “Cuban Crime of Passion”.  And I forgot to mention the presence of banjos in “Wheel Inside the Wheel”.  Is this the first appearance of banjos in a JB album?  [Update: once again Mickey has overlooked the License to Chill album, and its song “Piece of Work”.]
    The guys yelled at me for adding “Cha cha cha” intermittently to “Silver Wings”, during the Sirius show.
    Some of our research was helped by the fact the original versions of “Weather With You”, “Cinqo de Mayo in Memphis”, “Elvis Presley Blues”, “Wheel Inside the Wheel”, “Silver Wings” are available on iTunes. 
    Have fun listening to the album when it comes out!  See you in a couple weeks.  And, finally, how ’bout our new theme song!
    P.S.: so, did you hear the news?  Jimmy was arrested for injecting heroin in a Turkish airport.  ...Actually, French authorities insist they found Ecstasy during a baggage check.  Jimmy has stated that the pills were actually a vitamin supplement called Foltx, and that customs was confused by a heart shape imprinted on the pills.  Looks like Jimmy might be telling the truth.
