The Store is open again and this place makes Walmarts look like a little mom and pop shop. You want Gone With The Wind? Which version? You want the one written on sheet metal? The one where all the letters are blurry? the one where Tara is replaced with Flatbush? The one where every other page is missing? The one written upside down, the one where all the vowels have been eliminated or the one in Braille? As we said, the store has everything.
Also Bob Berman, famed astronomer begins his 8 part series on the planets. First up-Mercury. Listen to his podcast Astounding Universe https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/jim-metzner/astounding-universe
How appropriate that our 50th podcast is a Valentine's Day card. But also a celebration of the Presidents' birthdays. Harry has a poem about Washington and a song too.
And there's lots of love.
Also Cindy Cashdollar on dobro helps Steve and Harry sing that rousing number "Washington at Valley Forge"
The CWMD studio has been designated as a wildlife refuge and people start showing up to deliver their wildlife. Only these animals are not wild enough except for the shrimp maybe. But the possum just plays dead. What kind of wildlife is that?
Also Jay Ungar, Molly Mason and Peter Davis sing a great Fats Waller tune. Love it.
Harry is tired of playing a two dimensional character. He wants roles that let him portray pathos and depth. How about a little Shakespeare? Hilarity ensues.
Plus Eric Weissberg, banjo player extraordinaire is Steve's guest. He's helping Steve playing a completely ridiculous song but with great banjo work.
Harry has decided to work in a lumberyard because he loves wood so much. Only it's dangerous. The carpenters see his luscious wood and want to fondle it. It's @metoo all over again.
And Lyn Hardy and Diane Senabria are my guests. They're singing "Life is hard but life is hardest when you're dumb" by Mark Graham.
Harry brings in 3D glasses and then moves up the dimensions to 7D glasses. Wow! What you can see when putting on 7D glasses would blow your mind.
Also the great Paul Geremia, blues guitarist, sings Big Bill Broonzy's "Mopper's Blues"
The Ventriloquist Police come in to check whether Steve's lips move when Harry talks.
When they catch him in the act they take him away to jail leaving Harry to host the show alone.
And Cindy Cashdollar, the great dobro player helps Steve sing "Hey Goodlookin'"
Harry's having a dream that he's saving his class from certain death when Steve wakes him up. He's got to get back to sleep or else!
And Jay Ungar and Lyn Hardy sing a song that Jay wrote "You low down dirty dog".
Also Steve sings an original "Spaghetti Slurpin'"
This is our compassion show. Harry is sharing his candy bar with Steve by giving him half of it...again and again and again.
And Steve sings Bob Blue's great song "Courage". One of his favorite songs of all time, and that's not hyperbole.
John Hall is Steve's guest and he's singing a John Sebastian song "Just another link in the chain".
Harry is doing his annual stint at Santa's workshop dealing with the toy rejects. He brings in a bunch to see if anyone wants one.
Also Kim and Reggie Harris do a really, really funny song "You ain't gettin' Diddly Squat cause you really screwed up this year"
And Steve and Harry sing "Xmas in Killarney" and "I Wanna Be an Elf"
