FDH Lounge Show #86: January 6, 2010

By Rick Morris

The first edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com) in this new decade picks up right where we left off: covering more topics than any other show – ever.

After our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge and The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries, we welcome in one of our most interesting guests yet: Anvil lead singer Steve “Lips” Kudlow, whose thrash metal band was chronicled in last year’s amazing documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The band’s comeback story takes its next big step forward the night after our program when Anvil kicks off its North American tour coincidentally in our headquarters city of Cleveland. We’ll break down the movie, the tour and what the 2010s have in store for this indefatigable band.

Next, in keeping with our focus on our recent eBook (It is: DISSECTING THE DECADES: THE FDH LOUNGE LOOKS BACK AND AHEAD AT THE FIRST 20 YEARS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM. You can read the book's explanatory statement and Table of Contents here.), we will have an awesome roundtable on the state of the music business with a great panel. Indeed, we’ve got some great ones here:

^ Beau Hill, producer of million-selling 80's rock albums/recording artist
^ Kevin Elson, producer for Journey, Mr.Big, Lynard Skynard, Europe
^ Hab Haddad, Vice-President of New Media for HOR Entertainment Group

What are some of the noteworthy trends and progressions in the business? What great stories have these figures witnessed in their days in music? We’ll cover a wide array of subjects with them.

From there, we start THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER a bit earlier than usual as we prepare for our postseason fantasy football mock draft. You can check out our suggested league guidelines and our draft board here.

We end as usual with THE GOON SQUAD as our good pal Russ Cohen of Sportsology joins us for a look at the present NHL standings as well as The Winter Classic, which he attended as he always does. You can read his recap of the event here and we’ll talk to him about the past, present and future of hockey’s newest gem.

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!
