FDH Lounge Show #107: June 16, 2010

By Rick Morris

Variety? It’s just how we roll on THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on

On the 107th edition of The Great American Radio Show on Internet TV, we open as usual with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge before bringing in one of the most respected voices in the music industry, Eddie Trunk. DJ, VJ, MC, TV producer, TV host … he’s done it all and that doesn’t even cover his work outside the business in terms of voiceovers, participation in sporting events, etc. We’ve had his co-host of “That Metal Show” on VH-1 Classic Don Jamieson on previously (leaving only Jim Florentine to round out the crew of Lounge guests – call us, Jim!) and so the material surrounding that show provides a wonderful jumping-off point for our questioning. From there, we move into THE GOON SQUAD (no longer rooted to the bottom of the third hour but now a recurring show-within-a-show at various intervals) and a recap of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with an outstanding panel: Russ Cohen of Sportsology, Jan Levine of Hockeybuzz and Philadelphia’s Fox 29 sportscaster Joe Staszak.

In the first half of Hour Two, we bring on another multidimensional guest in the vein of Mr. Trunk – actor/producer/director/writer/musician Thomas Ian Nicholas. He’s got a new album out, he’s continuing to pile up acting roles, we’ve got a lot to talk about with him. In the second half of the hour, we break down what will be only the second Game 7 of the NBA Finals since 1994 (and only the third since the Lakers/Pistons tilt of ’88). We will then dissect the early play of the World Cup and the killer-bee sounds propagated by those pesky South Africans.

THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER kicks off Hour Three with a look at our “Ultimate Stat” UQB for hockey next year. As we do for all of the major fantasy sports and some other ones as well, we have a system that compares players to each other across positions on a per-game basis. We’ll brief you on what our research has told us about the 2010-11 fantasy NHL season.

We close with a new member of The 21st Century Media Alliance, Rich Mancuso of the great sports website Keep It In The Ring. He covered the recent boxing card at Yankee Stadium and he’s working to put together an absolutely massive boxing roundtable on our show in the weeks to come.

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. Also, you can now catch THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on
