Episode 9 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast Posted... (No. 9... No. 9... No. 9...)

Sonovista, My Friends!!! Episode 9 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast is online and as we race towards our 10th episode anniversary, next week, we're picking up comedic steam...

First, before we get into the show notes, a great thanks go out to John DeKoven for coming down to the Schnauzer studios and sitting in for the vacationing Parviz, who's off schtupping his wife... John, for those who don't know, is a comedy impresario and the chief yuckety yuck of Laugh-A-Lot Productions, and drove down from Pleasanton in an obvious state of pulmonary distress to co-host and play a round of Win John DeKoven's Money. Thanks also go out to Mike Lema and Erin King who both offered to co-host, and Theresa Benson, who offered to co-host and wrote an amazing review in the iTunes music store. In the coming weeks we'll give everyone a chance to co-host, either in the studios, or on the phones, as time and logistics permit... so many thanks, and if you're reading this and also interested in co-hosting some future segment, just drop me a note and we'll add you to the list.

OK... on to the show notes:

In honor of the upcoming start to the 2006 baseball season (April 3rd) we played a famous outtake of legendary Baltimore Orioles manger Earl Weaver responding to fan questions on The Manager's Corner. I know this is a real recording, but I don't know if it ever made it on the air... if you know, drop us a line...

Starting the show we moved into a show rundown, welcomed back Sean, and learned a bit about John's girlfriend, Helene, who works for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. After the break we got Helene on the phone and played a round of Win John DeKoven's Money, which resulted in a tie (first time ever) and forced us to go to the tiebreaker round, where Helene proved victorious!

We took another break and tackled the question of the week, talking a lot about Hillary Clinton's possible Presidential candidacy and the possible challenge by Condoleezza Rice. We then took our third break and played a song by my friend Fran Bennett (the first tune not from )

Coming back from the break we ran down the genesis of the "sound" of stand-up comedian Kip Addotta hanging up on me, and played the original audio from 2001. We also played a teaser of a brand-new interview I conducted with Kip earlier this week, which we'll play on next week's 10th-episode anniversary show. For those who want to learn more about Kip before next week's interview, or order his comedy CD's, head over to his web site at (and for those who say that no good can come from comedy, be sure to check out Kip's son Victor's master woodworking/furniture business Addotta Fine Woodwork)

We then took our last break and came back with a discussion about FHM magazine's naming of Scarlett Johansson "Sexiest Women". John agreed... Sean was not amused... And we finished with a plug for John's upcoming shows and website ( )

And with that, here are this week's amazing artists:

1. Dollar Gen from Austin Texas - "Everytime"
2. Genie Dean from Allborg, Denmark - "Wasted"
3. Fran Bennett from San Jose, CA - "Arthritic Rap"
4. Soapbox Paradox from E. Lansing, MI - "Danny!"

And now you know what you didn't know when you didn't know what you knew!

Next week, a big big show... but until then:

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell The Truth
And Don't Be Attached To The Outcome
