FDH Lounge Show #31: June 22, 2008

By Rick Morris

Don't stop believin' that another great edition of THE FDH LOUNGE is coming your way Sunday night (8-11 PM EDT on with longtime Journey drummer Steve Smith!

One of the greatest drummers of all time, and a man who effortlessly spans diverse genres such as jazz and rock, Smith has an incredible story to tell and he's touring the US this summer presenting outstanding educational drum clinics. We'll be breaking format to have him on at the top of the show to talk about his life in music.

From there, we hit The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries before we get into our political roundtable towards the end of Hour One. Obama's now looking for the caysh just like Montel Vontavious Porter. Will he pay a price for his nine figures in campaign mo-nay (hey, if Michelle Obama is allowed to bring the fist-bump into parlance for the campaign, we're not being insensitive if we join in the spirit of things!)? Does John McCain need to swing for the fences with every decision the rest of the way? And does he have a winning issue with the Democrats' extreme resistance to tapping America's immediate energy needs by tapping our resources at home?

Later in Hour Two and for the first part of Hour Three, we bring you our second annual FDH Hot Dog Eating Fantasy Draft! When the world's greatest competitive gorgers in the world converge on Staten Island for the 4th of July festivities, we'll all have a rooting interest, and we'll show you how to do so as well!

In Hour Three, we welcome Fran Stuchbury from to discuss the upcoming AFL playoffs and what has been another interesting regular season in this unusual sport. We end the show with a look at the NHL Entry Draft with a man who was there, one of our favorite guests, John Kreiser from

As always, we're all over the map on tonight's show, from rock and jazz to presidential politics to competitive eating to indoor football to the world of hockey. Whatever your interest, we'll find a way to entertain and inform you on THE FDH LOUNGE, only on STN.
