Episode 128: CeLEbrAtIOnS!

Mikhail Horowitz is back and we got 'em. He's doing a parody on the blind men and the elephant. Only it's unexpurgated. A little spicy so beware.
Also Harry wants to point out that we don't celebrate things we should. Like the 10,000th time we've blinked our eyes. Or the 5,000th time we've brushed our teeth. Now that would be a brushing with all the bells and whistles involved.
And to tie it all up, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer sing "The Therapy Fund". Do your kids need a college fund? Nope. You need to save for their therapy fund!

Episode 124: CrAzY lOvE

The theme is romance. Crazy Romance. To start it off is Ed Sanders (From the Fugs) doing "The Belle of Avenue A". A story song about a truck driver in the 60's on the Red Ball express heading into the East Village to get some hippie noogie. It satirizes the hippie movement beautifully.
Then Les Vegas sings his original song "I'm in Love With A Big Blue Frog". The same one that Peter, Paul and Mary had a hit with.
Harry's girlfriend is a broom and he wants Steve to make her talk.
And Allan Sherman sings a parody of 5'2 Eyes of Blue only this girl is from outer space.

Episode 120: Professions

Mikhail Horowitz is Steve's guest again! He and Steve sing a Tibetan Sea Shanty called "Bonny Lama". Mik is going to become a regular guest if he's not careful.
Also Harry has various jobs. He's working in a store where he's over a guy named Under but he's under a guy named Over. Then he becomes a cloud inspector rating all the clouds from G to X rated. And finally he has trouble finding the right profession. A baby sitter? Who wants to sit on babies! A Naval surgeon? Who wants to operate on bellybuttons! Well, you get the idea.
There's also Gracie Allen talking about her Uncle Amazon Allen and Skiles and Henderson doing a bit as well.

Episode 119: Comedyman

Harry convinces Steve he has a superpower, comedy! And he should become Comedyman to foil thugs. Yep, it's as stupid as it sounds. But funny. Kind of. That's because Steve IS Comedyman!
There's also a Burns and Allen recording and other nonsense.

Episode 118: Special Physics

Mikhail Horowitz is Steve's guest again. This time doing an homage to Lord Buckley called "Swingin' Cicadas" And Steve's thrown in a Lord Buckley recording as well for those who never heard of him (shame on you). 
And Harry explains to Steve how on the podcast, special physics apply. Normally 1 and 1 is 2, but not on CWMD! Here, 1 and 1 is 5. And then he proves it. Newton's law of inertia doesn't apply either. Stuff just moves spontaneously without the benefit of an outside force...well you get the idea. 
There's also a Strange Facts segment and Steve sings a song he wrote called "Oh My Darling Porcupine". 

Episode 117: The Double Entendre Band

Steve always wanted to have a band called "Double Entendre". Every song would be, well, a double entendre. Since he never pulled it off, he did the next best thing. He used GarageBand creating a podcast where all the songs sung by Steve and/or Harry on one level are G rated, nothing risqué about them, looked at another way, the songs are quite spicy. 
Helping him in his task is Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington.

Episode 114: Baseball

It's all about baseball folks. An old song called "I Love Micky" is featured (Micky Mantle makes a guest appearance on the recording) and Steve teaches Harry how to play baseball with disastrous results...of course.
Steve has his most esteemed guest Mikhail Horowitz (who is responsible for 20 arts organizations losing their federal funding). He introduces a new take on Casey at the Bat with a hip 50's style twist. It's a cool version and you'll feel cool listening to it.  Don't applaud, snap your fingers in approval.
