Chapter 24

In this installment, we take a look at a beloved part of American pop culture…AND a beloved part of British pop culture!

  • You’re  a Schnook, Charlie Brown!  – but aren’t we all?
  • Music for Schnooks – my first compact disc

Chapter 23

A schnook hits the road and shows a rather…annoying side of himself in chapter 23 of this ongoing as-read-by-the-author pseudo-book in podcast form. (But in the actual episode, he refers to himself in the first person.)

  • A Schnook on the Road – It’s road trip season!
  • Music for Schnooks – Adventures of an ***hole

Chapter 22

Barely in time for Paul McCartney’s birthday, a new episode that, surprisingly, has virtually zero mention of The Beatles! This chapter begins with some serious thinking I needed to get out. But after that:

  • City of Success — A schnook’s reflections on life in the big city
  • Music for Schnooks — Hopefully better late than never, a long, long overdue tribute to a true musical genius.

Chapter 20: The All-Vinyl Episode

Get a look into the analog life of a schnook as Sean talks about records: listening, collecting, advice, and clay pigeons. (Well, maybe not clay pigeons.)

In this podcast:

  • Growing Up Vinyl – coming of age in a pre-CD era
  • My Weird Record Collection – hypertension, enunciation, and puu puu!
  • Top Ten Favorite Albums to Listen To on Vinyl – does there really need to be an explanation on this side of the hyphen?


Chapter 17

I apologize for the delay, friends, but here’s the first episode of 2020! In this chapter:

  • Growing Up Catholic: The Mass — Sean reminisces and makes observations about his experiences sitting in church.
  • Music For Schnooks: A Schnook Goes Underground — Stories of a past life in bootleg trading


Appendix II: Christmas 2019

No reason for this appendix other than to…tie up some loose 2019 ends. More schnookdom coming in 2020!
