FDH Lounge Show #61: June 10, 2009

By Rick Morris

The 61st edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (7-10 PM EDT, Wednesdays on will see us once again redefine the word “eclectic.”

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we take a look at the ongoing NBA Finals. Is this shaping up to be a series where the home team just holds serve? We’ll break it down. Then, at the bottom of the first hour, we welcome in a very versatile media expert. Simon Applebaum is the host/producer of the outstanding webcast Tomorrow Will Be Televised, a program that draws upon his background as a Senior Editor at Multichannel News and Cablevision magazines and his TechTV news/commentary experience. Nobody – nobody – has their finger on the pulse to a greater degree in terms of what’s happening in television, both right now and with the technological changes impacting the future.

At the start of Hour Two, “the search is over” for a great singer to visit The Lounge! Jimi Jamison, best known as the longtime lead vocalist for Survivor, will be discussing his past, present and future music projects with us. His experience with different bands is vast and he’s even somebody with some up-close knowledge about the classic Memphis wrestling territory! We’ll cover a tremendous amount of ground with him.

Jimi also put together the theme for “Baywatch” back in the day. Here it is!

We’re joined then by FDH baseball analyst Tim Foust for a look at the biggest stories and pennant races in Major League Baseball. He’ll stick around then for the start of Hour Three. At that time, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER takes a sneak peak at a piece germinating for this weekend’s FDH Fantasy Newsletter about the wave of talented young prospects who have been called up in MLB over the past week or two. Also, our FDH Senior Editor Jason Jones has a new blog and we’ll discuss his first column, which was fantasy football-oriented. Additionally, we review our “Ultimate Stat” for hockey – just calculated for the 2009-10 NHL fantasy season – and the overall concept of our vaunted UQB stat, which is one of our most powerful weapons. Then, our GOON SQUAD show-within-a-show previews one of the most exciting events in sports: Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Finals! We’ll examine this showdown from each and every relevant angle.

It’s going to be a great program and we hope you can be a part of our audience. As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us now on iTunes!
