FDH Lounge Show #88: January 20, 2010

By Rick Morris

The 88th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on is just like every episode before it: a little something for anybody.

We will defer This Week in The FDH Lounge and The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries until after our third interview of the show in the first half of Hour Two, because we’ve got some huge guests coming in right off the bat. We start with a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a man who exemplifies the genre of “Philly Blue-Eyed Soul,” John Oates of THE one and only Hall and Oates. He’ll be here to talk about the duo’s legendary career, as well as his most recent chapter with the CD 1000 MILES OF LIFE.

In terms of subject matter, some whiplash may ensue as we transition from Mr. Oates to our next guest, former pro wrestler and now concussion awareness activist Christopher Nowinski. He’ll be here to talk about all facets of his very interesting career.

Our third guest is actually our newest FDH Lounge Dignitary, a fellow member of The 21st Century Media Alliance, Steve Kallas. As our go-to-guy at the intersection of sports, the law and ethics, he’s the perfect analyst to help us break down the woes around Mark McGwire and Gilbert Arenas. From there, we welcome back in our friend Simon Applebaum from the blog and webcast Tomorrow Will Be Televised (remember, he was featured in our recent eBook DISSECTING THE DECADES) for his keen insights on the present quagmire in late night television.

Hour Two winds down with The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report and our Championship Sunday preview before we begin Hour Three with THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER and our unveiling of the first three rounds worth of drivers on our NASCAR draft board in preparation for next week’s huge mock draft. Then, we continue our "fantasy football season in review" by looking at the “micro level,” position by position, with Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini. Last week, we took an overview of the major fantasy positions; this week, we focus on players who emerged in either a positive or negative sense during the 2009 season and we opine about which of them will continue in the same vein in 2010 and beyond.

We close as always with THE GOON SQUAD and a look at the present NHL standings as well as more of our ramping-up coverage of the amazing forthcoming Olympic hockey tournament.

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!
