It's our annual Halloween show and our guest is Daniel Pinkwater, award winning children's author and long time commentator on "All Things Considered" and other NPR broadcasts. We're reading his book "The Frankenbagel Monster". Also Harry's upset that Steve wants him dressed as a ballerina for the holiday.

Bruce Ackerman is the guest. Bruce is a rennaisance man. Sculptor, painter, cartoonist, musician, bon vivant. And on this show he's playing a tasty arrangement on the guitar of Mairzy Doats and Dozy Doats. Also, Harry, Steve's dummy, needs to take his afternoon nap and decides to count sheep like you've never heard anyone count sheep before. Hilarious. From Steve's Best of... CD's volume 4, there's a routine from his stage act performed live of Harry putting him down. What more could you ask for in a podcast?

Trout Fishing in America are Steve's guests. Nothing to do with fishing mind you. They hail from Arkansas and are so loveable and fun to hang out with. Great musicians, great songwriters, great sense of humor. They've won so many awards and today, here for you now they'll be singing "Baby's got the carkeys". Lots of you will relate.
And Harry wants more bananas on the show. Why? Because they're funny. He also reads an essay about the similarities and differences between the banana and the sausage.

Barry Louis Polisar is Steve's guest today. He wrote the theme song to that great movie Juno "All I want is you". He's also written some great children's songs. You get a funny title and the song writes itself. How about "My brother threw up on my stuffed toy bunny" or "You can't say BPPPP on the radio". Anyway he's singing a song that was featured on Sesame Street "I Gotta Dog and my dog's name is cat"
Harry won a dinosaur kit at a Paleontology Festival and is putting up a life size replica of a Tyrannosaurus. It's funny.
And in the same vein, Steve sings a song he wrote called "The Museum of Natural History" with a great band behind him.

Today on the show is Bill Keith. Such a banjo player this guy was. He played with Bill Monroe. Bob Dylan, Jim Kweskin’s Jug Band, Judy Collins and about a million other people. He’s helping Steve do one of his favorite songs “Bully of the Town”. It’s sad Bill passed away not that long ago. But Steve is honored that he got to play with him.
Plus Harry's been visiting a juice bar and then a salad bar. You want puns? This is the home office for them.
And Steve and Harry do an Untrue Facts segment and Steve sings a song he wrote "The Biggest Sandwich I Ever Ate".

Today we got Tom Chapin on the podcast. Tom's been around forever winning grammy awards and hosting his own TV show. He plays for kids and adults alike. A total class act. He's doing a song called State Laughs.
Also Harry's sweater has shrunk which leads him to want to shrink other things. And he does, oh yes he does.
Steve plays a song he wrote on the piano, "When I play piano I give it a fast kick". It's a doozy.
And did you ever hear the "Who's on First"routine with a knock knock joke? That's because it has never been done...until now.

Jay Ungar and Molly Mason are Steve's guests helping Harry sing a Richard Morton song "How would you like to be made of wood". Jay and Molly are the best. Both were in the Prairie home Companion house band. They've played with everyone and anyone. Jay wrote the theme song to Ken Burns' Civil War documentary on PBS that became a big hit. Fantastic fiddle player while Molly plays a great bass. Plus the door is acting up. You know the old trusty sound effect of the door opening and closing when anyone comes into the studio? It's tired of being a background character and wants to be the star of the podcast. So...everytime Steve and Harry open it up, it...well, acts up.

October 10, 2017 09:00 PM PDT

Peter Davis is the guest. The man plays like 25 instruments. He was with the Prairie Home Companion house band and his band has become one of the nation’s most requested swing dance bands. He plays clarinet, alto sax, piano and vocals on the album and Harry and
Steve will be helping him sing "You can't judge a book by looking at it's cover.
Also Steve's depressed and Harry is worried. The man has a job to do to make people laugh!
And later on in the podcast Steve plays "Nagasaki" on the piano.

October 04, 2017 12:00 PM PDT

Steve and Harry's guest is Les Vegas. Is that a great name or what? He's performing a hit song he wrote, Peter Paul and Mary's "I'm in Love with a Big blue frog".
Also, Harry is now a lawyer for Fairytale characters. For instance he's got a suit against the Farmer's Wife representing the three blind mice. Domestic abuse against Peter Pumpkin eater. And others.
And Steve is singing one of his favorite songs by Mark Graham "I can see your Aura and it's ugly".

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.
