Episode 87: Everything’s Better With Bacon!   (*Bacon Not Included)

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, October 15 2008 (9:30 PM - 11:00 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Schmoe & Mike’s concert-going adventures continue and Greg & Mike have new ‘Margaritaville’ verses.  Special guest: Joda.  Cameo by Jennifer.

    00:44 - with Government Honey being disbanded, Mike’s brother Jimmy (the singer of our theme song) has joined a new band called Mr Fabulous.  A name he’s not too crazy about.  Jimmy also still does his solo act, called The Jimmy Show.
    01:00 - it sounds like Schmoe says “Flagellant Monkey” but the name I came up with was “Flatulent Monkey”.
    I mean, come on.  “Flagellant Monkey” is just plain silly.
    01:07 - did we mention Greg likes monkeys?
    01:35 - Old 97’s
    01:43 - be like Mike: get the new Old 97’s album on iTunes.  Or order if from Amazon.
    02:17 - Silky's, at Kiernan’s Steakhouse
    02:37 - St Andrew’s Hall, in Detroit
    04:36 - famed luthier Chad Heckler
    05:03 - Mason Jennings
    06:14 - singer Doug Fieger, attorney Geoffrey Fieger, and “Dr Death” Jack Kevorkian
    06:43 - lest we forget, Mike, Schnmoe, and Greg worked security for The Knack, as mentioned in Episode 61B
    07:16 - Sunspots, sunspots, sunspots
    09:08 - contest at Radio Margaritaville
    09:23 - contest at Cheeseburger in Paradise
    09:32 - CIP contest runs from October 15 to November 15
    09:58 - order Nod to the Storyteller from Amazon | or order it from Mailboat Records
    10:30 - a callback to Episode 65 (specifically, 40:40 in)
    11:06 - a callback to the end of Episode 84
    12:24 - a callback to our previous episode
    14:37 - all these bacon references stem from a tangential conversation which, unfortunately for our purposes here, was deleted from Episode 78.  But to make up for it, I present links to Bacon Salt, the item which started it all, and, your source for all things bacon, Bacon Today
    15:46 - Mike quotes a comment from the RCPM discussion board, a comment first mentioned in Episode 38
    15:51 - Mike comes dangerously close to plagiarizing a line from my lyric (from last week’s episode).  I protested at the time, but I vainly deleted it from the show since I sounded so pissy
