Be Baba’s Friend
Listen on Stitcher Radio!
Category Archives: Episodes 000-010
Sympathy for the Deejay: Chris plays an old audio clip of what got them in trouble on the old Smorgasbord radio show. Chris and Dave reenact the night when Fred Moore called the radio station in an outrage. Fred as a contestant on the game show, “Get a Life”. Chris calls Peet to bust his chops for not listening to the podcast. Peet admits to not being tech savvy enough to download the show. Baba Gonesh Indian Folk Tale, “The Dog Bride”.
The SmorgShow players recreate the classic 1943 radio drama, “Sorry, Wrong Number”. Also, strange news stories of the week, Baba Gonesh’s Indian Folk Tale of the week, and a 2010 remix of “Slime”, from the Cow Dung and Chicken Tongue collection.
This began the springboard for us in creating all the subsequent old-time radio dramas in our SmorgShow Theater series.
We call Peet to ask for his advice and help on a plumbing problem since he has been in that industry for 25 years. He offers no more assistance than if we had referred to the Moen website ourselves. Chris’s dad who lives in Paris comes in for a visit so we give him a French culture quiz to see how well he is assimilating in France.
With Ally off celebrating her birthday with her friends, Chris does the show solo and brings out some old Chris and Dave Smorgasbord show bits (including Talent Line, “Get a Life”, the ‘Algebra – Not Just for Homework Anymore’ commercial, and Comedy Camel). Then, Baba returns from India with a classic Indian folk story to wrap up the show.
Ally’s Birthday Show: Chris and Ally discuss the origin and copywrite protection of the “Happy Birthday To You” song; a discussion about birthday traditions around the world, Baba Gonesh calls in from India while celebrating the Indian holiday, Holi. Chris calls old WDGC partner Daryl Woltman, to discuss their daughters’ shared birthday; Peet’s Perspective.
Valentine’s Day Special. Baba Gonesh comes out of an extended retirement to recite some Valentine’s Day love poems and gives tips on how to prepare for that special date. Peet McCain returns to the program with the debut of his new weekly feature, “Peet’s Perspective”. Judy the Child whips up a special Valentine’s Day dinner, and Chris and Ally submit an entry into the Norah Jones karaoke contest.
Other features: For President’s Day, Ally recites the U.S. Presidents in record time. We receive a call on the feedback hotline from Canadian Astrologer, Mystical Melinda who last appeared on the Chris and Dave Smorgasbord Radio Show back in 1984. Chris unearths an old recording of his love song from 1982 called “The Black Cow”, and we wrap up the program with some very odd news stories.
Peet joins us by phone and talks about the origins of the Smorgasbord Radio show title as well as how Match.com has been working out for him. Ally gets outstanding academic achievement recognition. New game show “What did I say?” and an update on former WDGC-FM General Manager, Fred Moore.
Chris revives the old Smorg brand name after 25 years since Chris and Dave’s last show. This time Chris pairs up with his daughter, Allison in this new weekly podcast series. On this first episode, Chris updates the audience on what everyone has been up to since the original Smorg crew disbanded. Chris and Ally experiment with a helium tank and then make a road trip to the local Sonic.
This was actually recorded 4 years after Episode 1. This serves as a prequel to the SmorgShow Podcast Series for anyone just now stumbling upon our program. Chris and Ally discuss the experience of doing the show together and provide an overview of what the program is all about. If you are just only now discovering our show, we hope you continue to explore the rest of our production catalog.
