FDH Lounge Show #74: September 23, 2009

By Rick Morris

Our next edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (now back at its traditional time of 7-10 PM EDT on Wednesday nights on features its trademark blend of variety – and, like last week’s program, it will be liveblogged throughout the show on Googling Atlee Hammaker.

By resuming the old format, the traditional “anything goes” portion of The Lounge from 7-9 now furnishes the first two hours of programming. We lead once again with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge before we bring in Dave Karger from Entertainment Weekly’s Oscar Watch. An expert on the Academy Awards, Dave will speak to us with some early insights into the 2010 voting as well as helping us recap the Emmy awards.

In the second half of the first hour, we bring to you our recurring FDH Lounge Pigskin Report, examining the September developments thus far from the pro and college gridirons.

At the top of Hour Two, our good friend and fellow member of the 21st Century Media Alliance New York lawyer Steve Kallas, proprietor of Sports Plus/Kallas Remarks, joins us for a look at the 20th anniversary of the Pete Rose banishment from baseball. Later, we start THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER a bit early with a visit from KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini to review early-season fantasy football developments. THE INSIDER then continues as we preview NFL Week 3, the first of the bye weeks this season and we take a look at the standings in The FDH Lounge Dignitaries NFL Pick Contest. We conclude with THE GOON SQUAD as we take a brief look at FANTASY HOCKEY DRAFTOLOGY 2009 and continue to get you ready for your hockey pools before completing the NHL Western Conference preview we started last week and moving onto the Eastern Conference. We’ll also remind you that next Monday, September 28, is the publication date for our good pal Russ Cohen’s 100 RANGER GREATS.

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!
