Cindy Cashdollar is a dobro player extraordinaire. She's played with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Willie Nelson, Leon Redbone, Peter Rowan, The Band, Paul Butterfield and others. She won five grammy awards when working with Asleep at the Wheel. Steve rewrote Cocaine Blues and made it Caffeine Blues. She's helping him do it on this podcast.
Also, There's a question whether the evil Steve and Harry have taken over the show and locked the good Steve and Harry in the closet. Did they? Stream this podcast and find out.
Steve and Harry also sing a song on the piano "The Woodstock Strutter's Ball". All in all, a good time is had by all.

Steve's guest is Tom Paxton. The writer of classics such as "Last thing on my Mind" and "The Marvelous Toy", Tom's been around forever. He's singing about Ketchup with Harry. Steve is also playing a song he wrote for Scholastic on an album called "The Riddle King's Riddle Songs". Helping him on the tune is the great banjo player Bill Keith, John Sebastian from the Lovin' Spoonful, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason and Doug James on the drums.
And Harry has brought in a Comedy Wheel. Spin it and the comedy skit writes itself. Hilarity ensues.

Steve's guests today are Mikhail Horowitz, stand up poet and very funny guy. Also Jay Ungar, fiddle player as well as Lynn Hardy.
Harry is upset that Steve isn't paying the actors and crew in his dreams. If he keeps it up he'll end up stranded on a desert island for 8 hours a night. Dr. Fentermacher visits as the agent for these actors who are, after all, only figments of Steve's imagination. But then again...so is Dr. Fentermacher.

Steve's guests today are Paul Geremia and Larry packer, Paul is a legend in his field. Great folk and blues musician from Newport Rhode Island. He's being accompanied by Larry Packer on the fiddle.
Also the General Store is open. It's so big it makes Walmart's look like a little mom and pop shop. Customers ask for the strangest things and Steve and Harry always have them in stock.

Bernice Lewis is Steve's guest singing Michael Smith's "Dead Egyptian Blues", a wonderful song that should have been as big as Steve Martin's "King Tut".
And Harry makes the big mistake of asking if they'll be an explosion on the show. The rules of "Conversations With My Dummy" means that just mentioning it means it'll happen...again and again and again.

Four time grammy award winner for best comedy album, Peter Schickele is Steve's guest. Creator of PDQ Bach, author, satirist, composer, musician, Peter's done it all. After the interview with Steve, he plays an original about a really lousy day he's having.
And Harry has an eraser. He erases Steve's finger then draws it back. Same with his nose. He can do it because with audio there are no consequences or karma. In fact, Steve and Harry can do anything without paying for it. And they do, oh they do.
Then Harry sings an old 40's song and does some mean scat singing. And later Steve helps Harry with a school test coming up. For instance.
Steve-Harry, if you put your hand in one pocket and take out 38 dollars and you put your hand in the other pocket and take out 56 dollars, what do you have?
Harry- Someone else's pants!

Kim and Reggie Harris are Steve's guests. Great harmonies, funny songs, they've been playing for decades with the likes of Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Jay Leno, Tom Paxton and many others.
Also, Steve and Harry audition candidates to be the new script girl but all they get is a script guy, script grandma, script dog and none of them fit the bill.
It's funnier than it sounds.
Harry also sings the Dummy Song with Steve accompanying him on the piano.

Steve doesn't want to be funny on this podcast and Harry, his dummy, reminds him of the contract he signed at the comedy convention. If Steve refuses to tell jokes than he must be defrocked or they'll be dire consequences. Dragging out the Comedy Convention Handbook, Harry proceeds to do just that. No more propellor beanie, no more whoopee cushion, he rips off his epaulets and of course the big nose and mustache. Then things get really crazy.
And Steve's guests are Washboard Jungle. Very, very funny guys playing Ukulele Daily with delightful and funny back up singing.

John Sebastian is Steve's guest. He plays harmonica to Steve's "Soda, Soda, Soda". John is in the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and is writer of hits such as Daydream, Summer in the City, and Welcome Back Kotter.
Also we hear Harry's origin story. He started as a toothpick where Steve found him in a dummy orphanage and nurtured him until he grew to the dummy he is today.
Steve and Harry also sing a song called "You Killer Kid". It's a goodie.

July 26, 2017 12:00 PM PDT

Michael Cooney is a folksinger from Maine. He performs "I'm My Own Grandpa". Hank Neimark is a banjo player from Woodstock, NY. He performs a new version of "Old Joe Clark" with Steve.
