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?

Appendix II: Christmas 2019

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